What is Skin Vive?
Skin Vive is a new type of treatment called a skin booster. Like fillers in the Juvederm family, the active ingredient in Skin Vive is called hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a sugar found in your skin that draws water into the area. Unlike traditional fillers which fill in wrinkles and volumize, Skin Vive is placed in the surface layer of your skin. It will hydrate your skin and improve smoothness, fine lines, wrinkles, and pores. You will have a radiant glow.
What happens during a Skin Vive treatment?
Before your Skin Vive treatment you face will be washed and we will take pictures of you in various positions to monitor your progress. Then we apply numbing cream to the area that will be treated with Skin Vive and let it sit for about 15 minutes. The numbing cream is removed and the area is cleaned with special solutions to prevent infection. We cool the area with cold air to provide further numbing and a vibrating distractor called the Beauty Bar is placed on your skin to distract you. We will also provide you with a stress ball to hold during your Skin Vive treatment. Dr. Alex will place the Skin Vive in the skin with multiple injections. After your Skin Vive treatment, Dr. Alex will massage the areas. We will clean your skin, apply sunscreen, and provide you with an ice pack.
When will I see the results of my Skin Vive treatment?
You will notice the results of your Skin Vive treatment in one to four weeks.
How long will the results of my Skin Vive treatment last?
Most patients enjoy the results of their Skin Vive treatment for about six months.
What should I do after a Skin Vive treatment?
After a Skin Vive treatment, avoid heat exposure, alcohol consumption, and strenuous exercise for 24 hours. Heat exposure refers to staying outdoors for prolonged periods in the hot sun. Also avoid hot environments indoors such as a hot bath, sauna or steam room. Additionally, avoid hot or spicy foods or drinks such as soup, hot coffee, and hot tea (iced coffee and iced tea are okay). Strenuous exercise is anything that causes you to sweat or become short of breath. All of these things can increase the risk of bruising. Dr.
