Rediscover your skin’s natural brilliance with SkinVive™ by JUVÉDERM®, a breakthrough treatment that smooths fine lines and deeply hydrates, leaving you with a refreshed and youthful glow.

What is SkinVive™?

SkinVive™ by JUVÉDERM® is a revolutionary hyaluronic acid (HA) microdroplet injectable formulated to enhance skin hydration, glow, and smoothness for up to six months with optimal treatment. This product stands out as the only one of its kind, designed to deliver noticeable improvements in skin quality after a single treatment, heightening your skin’s natural moisture. SkinVive™ offers a unique solution for achieving a more radiant and youthful complexion.

Am I a Good Candidate for SkinVive™ Treatment?

SkinVive™ is a favoured non-surgical treatment option for many who want to rejuvenate their glow or improve skin smoothness. Here are just a few areas of concern it treats to help you understand if it’s right for you:

Presence of Fine Lines: Ideal for those beginning to notice fine lines and wrinkles who wish to restore a smoother, more youthful appearance.

Need for Improved Skin Hydration: This treatment is perfect for those whose skin often feels dry or looks dull and who desire a more hydrated, glowing complexion.

Target Areas: This injectable is especially effective for facial areas such as the cheeks and forehead, where signs of aging and dehydration are often most visible.

Caution is necessary for those with severe allergies, particularly to skincare products or injections, and individuals with autoimmune conditions since these might alter the body’s response to treatments like SkinVive™. Additionally, those on immunosuppressive therapy should consider possible impacts on treatment effectiveness and risks. The experts at ICLS will discuss this with you during your consultation.

How Much Does SkinVive™ Injectable Treatment Cost?

The cost of a SkinVive™ injectable treatment in Toronto can vary depending on the number of syringes used and which areas are treated. Please contact ICLS to book a consultation for an accurate cost estimate.

How to Prepare for SkinVive™ Injectable Treatment?

Preparing for a SkinVive™ treatment can help improve the procedure’s effectiveness and minimize potential side effects. Here are key pre-treatments we ask you to follow:

  • Avoid Certain Medications: To reduce the risk of bruising, avoid blood-thinning medications and supplements such as aspirin, ibuprofen, and vitamin E for at least a week before your treatment.
  • Stay Hydrated: Drink plenty of water in the days before your appointment. Hydrated skin tends to respond better to the treatment and heal faster.
  • Clean Face: Arrive at your appointment with a clean face. Remove all makeup, oils, and lotions, allowing the treatment area to be as clean as possible for the procedure.

These steps can help ensure a smoother procedure and optimal results from your SkinVive™ treatment.

How Is SkinVive™ Injected at ICLS?

At ICLS, SkinVive™ injections are administered with precision and care under the expert guidance of Dr. Sapra. The team’s extensive training and experience in dermatological procedures ensure that each treatment is tailored to the individual’s skin type and desired outcomes, optimizing both safety and effectiveness.

A SkinVive™ session at ICLS typically takes 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the treated areas. This quick and efficient procedure minimizes disruption to your routine, making it a convenient option for enhancing skin hydration and smoothness during your busy day.

Recovery from SkinVive™ Injectable Treatment

Recovering from a SkinVive™ treatment is generally quick, with most patients experiencing minimal downtime. Here are the typical recovery expectations and advised post-treatment care:

  • Immediate Aftercare: Immediately after the treatment, it’s normal to experience some redness, swelling, or slight bruising at the injection sites. These symptoms are typically mild and subside within a few days.
  • Avoid Makeup: Avoid applying makeup for at least 12 hours after the treatment to minimize the risk of infection and allow the skin to heal.
  • Limit Exposure to Extremes: For the first two weeks post-treatment, avoid exposure to extreme temperatures, such as saunas, steam rooms, and very cold environments. This helps prevent irritation and ensures optimal healing.
  • Follow-up Care: Follow our team’s instructions, including topical treatments or modifications to your skincare routine.

How Many SkinVive™ Treatments Do You Need?

The number of SkinVive™ treatments needed to achieve optimal results can vary depending on individual skin conditions and desired outcomes. Typically, a single treatment of SkinVive™ can provide noticeable improvements in skin hydration, glow, and smoothness. However, for sustained or enhanced results, additional treatments may be recommended.

We suggest starting with one treatment to evaluate how the skin responds and then determining if more sessions are needed based on the initial results and specific skin goals. It is common to schedule follow-up treatments every 6 to 12 months to maintain the skin’s enhanced appearance.

How Long Does SkinVive™ Last?

The results from SkinVive™ injectable treatment can last up to 9 months. However, this can vary depending on individual factors such as skin type, age, lifestyle, and how one’s body metabolizes the hyaluronic acid. Factors like sun exposure, smoking, and general skin care can also influence the longevity of the treatment effects. Because of this, regular follow-up sessions are recommended to maintain the skin’s hydration, glow, and smoothness over time.

SkinVive™ Injectable Treatment Benefits

SkinVive™ offers many compelling benefits for those looking to enhance their skin’s appearance, such as:

  • Improved Hydration: Injecting hyaluronic acid microdroplets deeply hydrates the skin, providing lasting moisture and improving overall skin texture.
  • Enhanced Glow: The treatment boosts the skin’s luminosity, giving a natural, radiant glow that enhances the complexion.
  • Increased Smoothness: SkinVive™ smooths out fine lines and improves the skin’s texture, resulting in a softer and more youthful appearance.
  • Patient Satisfaction: High patient satisfaction rates highlight the treatment’s effectiveness, with many users reporting noticeable improvements in skin quality and aesthetics after just one session.

What are SkinVive Alternatives?

While SkinVive™ is an innovative treatment for enhancing skin hydration, glow, and smoothness, there are various other treatments available that also aim to improve skin quality.

  • Other Hyaluronic Acid Injectables: Several hyaluronic acid-based treatments are available that can improve skin hydration and reduce fine lines. However, SkinVive™ is uniquely formulated with microdroplet technology that allows for deeper penetration and more uniform distribution of hyaluronic acid, leading to longer-lasting and more natural-looking results.
  • Collagen-Based Treatments: These treatments boost skin elasticity and firmness by stimulating collagen production. While effective, they often require a longer period to show results than SkinVive™, which offers immediate skin hydration and texture improvements.
  • Non-Invasive Options: Microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and LED light therapy can improve skin appearance without injections. These options might need multiple sessions and maintenance treatments to achieve results comparable to those of SkinVive™, which typically shows significant improvements after just one session.

While these alternatives can be effective, SkinVive™ stands out due to its specific formulation and the proven satisfaction among patients looking for hydrated, glowing, and smoothly textured skin. Choosing SkinVive™ ensures a treatment tailored not just to improving appearance but also to enhance the overall health of the skin.

SkinVive Treatment Reviews

Glowing with SkinVive

I couldn’t quite put my finger on what was bothering me about my skin and when I met with nurse Emilia, she asked if I wanted more hydration, glow and an overall dewy complexion. I immediately said, “yes!” She also told me that Dr. Sapra loves this treatment for himself and he always looks amazing!

She recommended SkinVive and said she could do it right now. The prep was easy because I used an inhalation anaesthesia that helped me tolerate the numerous needle pokes to administer the hydration. With the medication, it was very tolerable and I didn’t have to wait with that yucky numbing cream all over my face, which was a bonus. The entire procedure took about 10-15 minutes from start to finish and it looked like I had tons of little mosquito bites all over my face. They diminished by the time I got to my car, quite a bit. I am now about 3 weeks post treatment and my skin looks amazing! I don’t even wear foundation any more and everyone asks me what I did. I love that that the treatment is only twice a year to keep it up and nurse Em tells me that it gets even better with time. Between Botox and SkinVive, I feel that I have virtually stopped my aging. Thank you ICLS! – DM
