What Is SKINVIVE™? Everything You Need to Know!

Injectables have gained a lot of popularity over the past few years, especially when it comes to JUVÉDERM®. However, while this filler uses hyaluronic acid to offer volume, it is often too deep in the skin to provide that hydrated glow. For this reason, we now have a solution: SKINVIVE™. 

Perfect for dry winter climates, SKINVIVE™ acts like an injectable moisturizing cream, but one that works in the long term. Lasting 6 months it can keep your skin glowing and looking healthy all while improving its texture. Read our blog and learn more about SKINVIVE™, the injectable that lights up your skin from within!


SKINVIVE™ by JUVÉDERM® is a hyaluronic acid microdroplet injectable used to improve the hydration and smoothness of your skin. While it is frequently referred to as a facial filler, its formula is smoother and more watery compared to its other JUVÉDERM® cousins, making it more of an “injectable moisturizer” instead of a volumizer. 

SKINVIVE™ is superficially injected into the top layers of your skin, attaching itself to water particles. It replenishes the lost hyaluronic acid, which gradually decreases over time. Its effects can last for six months or even more, depending on your skincare routine.

The treatment is short, only taking about 15 minutes in our office, making it a suitable “lunchtime procedure.” You may notice some improvement in your skin right after stepping out of the Artistry office, but full results typically appear in one to two weeks. The hyaluronic acid particles will need that time to pull the moisture in from your skin.

Benefits of SKINVIVE™ 

Here are some of the benefits you can enjoy by choosing the SKINVIVE™ by JUVÉDERM® injectable:

1. More Hydration 

The hyaluronic acid in SKINVIVE™ attaches itself to the water molecules in your skin, growing several times its size and preventing it from being eliminated. This makes the skin look much more hydrated, an effect that can last for several months. SKINVIVE™ is an excellent choice for the dry winters in areas like Colorado, where the wind “bites” your skin.

2. Better Elasticity

Hyaluronic acid has a collagen-stimulating effect, which adds plumpness to the skin. While SKINVIVE™ injectables are too superficial to add extra volume, they still reach deep enough to improve elasticity in your skin. Combined with the hydrating effect of the formula, your skin can bounce back faster, reducing sagginess and laxity in the long run. 

3. Improved Skin Texture

The hydrating particles in SKINVIVE™ are also efficient for people whose skin tones are not that smooth. If you have an uneven skin tone, acne scars, or roughness that you do not feel particularly confident with, then SKINVIVE™ can minimize them. The hyaluronic acid settles into the imperfections and smooths them, improving the texture of your face. This injectable can also reduce the appearance of your pores as the HA particles push the walls, giving you the appearance of a constantly primed face.

Who Should Get the SKINVIVE™ Injectable?

Hyaluronic acid injectables are recommended for almost everyone, mainly as the compound is naturally produced in your skin. This solution is effective for women and men wishing to restore radiance to their skin and make their cheeks smoother without adding more volume to the area. 

Patients should have realistic expectations when opting for SKINVIVE™. While the injectable does help smooth some fine lines at the skin’s surface, its purpose is to hydrate rather than fill. This makes it a good option for people with relatively youthful skin who want to make it look less dull.
