As we age, it’s very common to develop fine lines, wrinkles, and loose, sagging skin around the midface area and, specifically, the cheeks. These imperfections can disrupt facial harmony and detract from the natural beauty of your features. If you’re interested in a simple, minimally invasive treatment to achieve smoother, more youthful-looking cheeks, SkinVive could be an excellent solution.
SkinVive by Juvéderm is the first and only FDA-approved injectable hyaluronic acid treatment designed to smoothen and rejuvenate the skin of the cheeks. SkinVive helps to hydrate the skin and soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, giving the cheeks a youthful, radiant glow.
SkinVive consists of a hyaluronic acid-based gel, which is injected into the facial skin using an innovative microdroplet technique. As a result, the hyaluronic acid is delivered directly into the dermis, allowing it to hydrate and revitalize the facial skin.
SkinVive is an innovative, minimally invasive treatment that can offer some or all of the following benefits:
Once you’ve had your consultation with Dr. Reinblatt to develop your personalized treatment plan, your SkinVive treatment will be a quick and easy process. To begin, a topical numbing cream will be applied to your facial skin to prevent any pain during the treatment. Dr. Reinblatt will then use a very fine needle to inject SkinVive gel into your skin around the cheeks. In total, the treatment only takes around 10 to 20 minutes, and you’ll be able to return home immediately once it’s finished.
Adults who would like to soften and hydrate the skin of their cheeks could be good candidates for SkinVive. Many individuals who seek the treatment are experiencing fine lines or wrinkles around the midface. SkinVive could also be a great option if you’ve noticed your facial complexion becoming rough and/or dry. To be an ideal candidate for SkinVive, it’s important that you’re in good physical health, have no active skin infections, and are not allergic to hyaluronic acid.
Most patients require little to no downtime after undergoing SkinVive treatment. You’ll likely experience some mild swelling, bruising, and soreness after the treatment, but you should be able to resume your normal routine within a day or so. That said, you’ll want to wait at least 24 to 48 hours before engaging in strenuous physical activity.
After your SkinVive treatment, you should notice immediate improvements to the texture and contours of your facial skin. However, it usually takes around five to ten days for the full results of the treatment to appear, and they should last for approximately six months before they begin to fade.
