What is SkinVive by Juvéderm?

Available now price $650 per treatment includes two syringes of Juvederm SkinVive

SkinVive by Juvéderm is a unique product that is FDA-approved for intradermal microdroplet injection to improve the skin quality category of the cheeks. It is an injectable gel that contains a small amount of local anesthetic to reduce discomfort during the injection process. Juvederm SkinVive is specifically designed to address an important unmet need in facial injectables, offering patients a therapeutic process that enhances their natural beauty.

The injection site and treatment area are carefully selected by a dermatologist to achieve optimal treatment outcomes. It is suitable for all Fitzpatrick skin types and is a category-creating HA product that complements the current collection of HA products from AbbVie, the parent company of Allergan Aesthetics.

The science behind SkinVive

The science behind SkinVive is based on a pivotal clinical study that evaluated the efficacy and safety of the injectable gel in improving the smoothness of the cheeks. The multicenter study involved 235 participants and was evaluator-blinded to ensure unbiased results. The primary endpoint of the study was the point improvement on the Allergan Cheek Smoothness Scale (ACSS) at week 12 post-treatment.

The results show that SkinVive provides lasting glow and contouring effects with minimal redness, swelling, or allergic reactions. It provided a statistically significant improvement in skin smoothness of the cheeks, as assessed by both the ACSS and a skin questionnaire. The product was well-tolerated, with tenderness, needle abrasion, lumps, bumps, and discoloration being the most commonly reported side effects. Severe side effects were rare, with only one participant experiencing a papule that resolved without intervention.

Macrene Alexiades, the lead investigator in the clinical trial and a renowned dermatologist, has highlighted that skin hydration is an extremely important factor in the dermatologic treatment regimen, and injection addresses this need.

Carrie Strom, the Senior Vice President of Global Allergan Aesthetics, has expressed her excitement about the launch of SkinVive, calling it a unique offering in the market. The development of Juvederm SkinVive is the result of AbbVie’s extensive experience and expertise in HA science, as well as its commitment to excellence in aesthetic treatments.

The clinical studies also showed that SkinVive has a duration of effect of up to 18 months, making it a long-lasting solution for improving skin smoothness. The product’s unique formulation, which includes lidocaine for added comfort during injection, provides a comfortable and safe treatment experience.

In summary, the science behind SkinVive is based on rigorous clinical studies that demonstrate its safety and efficacy in improving the smoothness of the cheeks. The product’s unique formulation and long-lasting effects make it a valuable addition to the dermatological surgery and skin care topics, providing a solution to the unmet need of patients looking for a lasting glow and contouring effects with minimal side effects.

How Juvederm SkinVive works

SkinVive by Juvéderm works by injecting hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in the body, into targeted areas of the skin. The injection site and treatment area are carefully selected by a dermatologist to achieve optimal treatment outcomes. Hyaluronic acid helps to retain moisture and plump up the skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This non-surgical treatment requires minimal downtime and can deliver long-lasting results of up to 24 months, depending on individual skin type and lifestyle factors. It is suitable for all Fitzpatrick skin types and can be used as an initial treatment or as part of a recurring series of treatments.
