You’ve heard of moisturizers, you’ve heard of hyaluronic acid, and you’ve most likely heard of filler injections. What do you get when you put it all together? Meet Skinvive, a hyaluronic acid gel injected right under your skin to hydrate you from the inside out! It’s like moisturizer under your skin, giving your skin a more hydrated, dewy look that can last 6 months.
Skinvive is not just any regular skincare treatment. It’s like giving your skin a big drink of water, making it soft and dewy. How does it work? Skinvive is made up of hyaluronic acid molecules. These molecules pull in water, which is why when it’s injected underneath your skin, it works as an internal hydrator.
What does the process look like? To get a Skinvive treatment, you’ll need to schedule an appointment with a trained medical professional. You’ll get a consultation to get all your questions answered. Before the actual treatment, your skin is cleaned and prepped. Your provider may draw a grid on your face in the areas you want to target with an eyeliner pencil. Then your provider will inject this internal hydrator into the treatment area. Although the treatment isn’t completely painless, it’s very tolerable. Some compare the little pinches during the treatment to eyebrow or lip hair threading, or like Botox or Dysport stings if you’ve had that done. The process takes 15–30 minutes total. For the rest of the day, you will see and feel little bumps. Bruising is always a possibility when needles are involved, but if any bruising happens, it’s usually minimal in size and goes away in 4–7 days. You’ll look and feel normal anywhere within 4–10 days. Your new, hydrated look is settled in around 4 weeks after the injections!
No matter your age or your skin type, Skinvive is beneficial for anyone who wants to help their skin look more refreshed and hydrated.
