What is Skinvive by Juvéderm?

Skinvive by Juvéderm, available at City Laser Clinic in San Francisco, is a revolutionary skincare treatment designed to enhance and rejuvenate the skin. It is the first hydration micro-droplet injectable. It is a minimally invasive procedure that uses hyaluronic acid to provide hydration, volume, and smoothness to the skin. This innovative treatment can help you achieve a more youthful and radiant appearance.

Skinvive is the first and only hyaluronic acid microdroplet injectable indicated to improve cheek skin smoothness, developed by Allergan Aesthetics. Skinvive harnesses the power of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in the body that helps to keep the skin hydrated and plump. With the incorporation of 1,4-butanediol diglycidyl ether (BDDE) and 0.3% lidocaine, Skinvive not only minimizes pain during injection but also ensures a more comfortable experience for patients. Additionally, FDA approval now allows for intradermal injections, extending the benefits of this product to enhance the smoothness of the cheeks.

Hydrated Skin is Essential to Healthy Skin.  Are you ready to see the Results with One Treatment and Get a Lasting 6-Month Glow with SKINVIVE™ by JUVÉDERM®?


Why Choose City Laser Clinic for your Skinvive Treatment?

City Laser Clinic is one of the first practices to offer Skinvive in San Francisco. Here at City Laser Clinic, we are proud of keeping up with the latest technology and experienced injectors in the downtown area of San Francisco, California. Our team is known for its extensive skin rejuvenation and aesthetics care experience. Our patients love getting customized advice on how to look and feel great. We are excited to offer a new addition to our advanced aesthetics services: Skinvive by Juvederm.

How does Skinvive work?

Skinvive works by injecting hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in the body, into the skin. This helps add volume and hydration to the skin, improving its texture and overall appearance. The treatment also stimulates collagen production, which can help improve skin elasticity and reduce the signs of aging.

How does Skinvive compare to other hyaluronic acid injectables?

While there are many hyaluronic acid injectables on the market, Skinvive stands out for its unique formula and innovative delivery system. Unlike other injectables, Skinvive uses Vycross technology to create a smoother and more natural-looking result. This means that you can achieve your desired results with fewer injections and less discomfort.

Additionally, Skinvive is known for its longevity. Because of the specialized cross-linking of the hyaluronic acid within Skinvive, the results of this treatment can last up to a year or more. This sets it apart from many other fillers that require more frequent touch-ups. As always, individual results may vary, and it’s crucial to have realistic expectations. Your City Laser Clinic’s injector can provide more detailed information about Skinvive based on your personal needs and skin condition. With Skinvive, achieving and maintaining a youthful and vibrant look has never been more convenient for our San Francisco patients.

Thorough testing has been undertaken to ensure that this treatment produces noticeable results in a matter of days, with the effects lasting for up to 12 months. Many of our San Francisco patients report seeing immediate results with Skinvive, while others may see gradual improvements over the following days and weeks. As the hyaluronic acid is gradually absorbed into the skin, you can expect to see continued improvement in your skin’s appearance over time. The fast and effective nature of Skinvive makes it an ideal option for those desiring a revitalized and youthful look.

How long do the results of Skinvive last?

The results of Skinvive can vary depending on individual factors such as age, skin condition, and lifestyle habits. On average, the results can last anywhere from 6 to 12 months.
