Rejuvenate your skin with SkinVive

Smooth, glowing cheeks are a universal hallmark of youth and vitality. Unfortunately, the natural aging process and our genetics can lead to a major loss in facial volume over time. Beyond these common factors, certain medications, fluctuations in weight, and stress can all contribute to a loss in facial fat. While injectable fillers have become the go-to method for reversing this process, and with considerable success, they can also lead to issues such as swelling, bruising, and even lumps. 

Fortunately, SkinVive serves as an alternative to these fillers, giving patients an option that achieves fantastic results with a lower likelihood of side effects. At Omaha Face, Dr. Harbison and his expert team aid patients on their journeys toward fuller, smoother skin with SkinVive. 

What is SkinVive?

A new product that is making waves throughout the industry, SkinVive by Juvederm is the first hyaluronic acid (HA) microdroplet injectable in the US designed to address volume loss in the cheeks. An FDA-approved treatment, Skinvive is an HA gel that acts as an intradermal microdroplet injection, meaning that small amounts of the product are injected into the skin rather than into the deeper layers of the skin (dermal layers).

How does SkinVive work?

Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the skin that boasts the incredible ability to attract and hold as much as 1,000 times its weight in water. Upon being injected into the dermal layer, SkinVive achieves a boost in hydration for a smoother, healthier, and more radiant aesthetic. 

What are the benefits of SkinVive?

Some of the most notable benefits of SkinVive include:

  • A minimally invasive treatment with a low risk of side effects
  • Little to no downtime
  • Results show up immediately following treatment  
  • Improved skin quality in the cheeks  
  • Radiant skin with improved texture
  • Long-lasting results that do not require frequent touch-ups

Who is a candidate for SkinVive?

SkinVive is a suitable treatment for patients of all genders with various skin types and tones. All individuals over the age of 21 are considered candidates for SkinVive. It is especially ideal for those who:

  • Have “dull” skin
  • Are experiencing dry skin due to aging
  • Are looking to achieve fuller cheeks
  • Want their skin to look softer to onlookers
  • Are apprehensive about unnatural treatments and results
  • Are busy and prefer a treatment that can be carried out in less than an hour

Virtually all patients who want to achieve a healthier, nourished glow in their face stand to benefit from SkinVive.

What does the procedure entail?

The SkinVive procedure is remarkably simple. During the consultation process, Dr. Harbison and his team carry out a thorough assessment of your current situation and medical history. The aesthetician then begins the process by cleaning your face. Next, a thin needle is used to inject small amounts of the SkinVive serum into multiple areas of the cheeks. Patients may feel a small pinch or sting, but this discomfort is minimal and passes quickly. SkinVive is formulated with .3% lidocaine, making the injections less painful. A full treatment session usually lasts between 15 and 30 minutes.

As there is no downtime after the procedure, patients are able to get back to their normal schedules almost immediately following the treatment. That said, patients may experience some mild swelling or discoloration at the injection sites, which will dissipate over the course of 30 days. 

Following the procedure, it is recommended that patients avoid strenuous exercise, excessive sun and heat exposure, and alcohol consumption for at least 24 hours. Engaging in these activities can cause temporary redness, swelling, or itching near the injection sites.

What to expect from the results

After undergoing a SkinVive treatment, patients usually see the results right away. That said, there is likely to be some swelling, meaning that the full effects of the treatment may not be visible for a few days. The results typically last for 6 to 9 months.
