Getting enough sleep, eating a healthy diet, staying hydrated, and using the right products are necessary for healthy, youthful skin, but sometimes it’s not enough. At our aNu Aesthetics & Optimal Wellness locations in Kansas City, MO, we offer a one-of-a-kind injectable by Allergan, the makers of the JUVÉDERM Collection, called SKINVIVE. This anti-aging hyaluronic acid-based filler attracts water molecules to the treatment area, resulting in smooth skin and a lasting glow.


SKINVIVE is the first-ever anti-aging hyaluronic acid microdroplet injectable specifically formulated to promote smoother skin on the cheeks. It subtly enhances the complexion by helping the skin retain natural moisture and promoting smoother, softer skin. This treatment allows patients to maintain adequate skin hydration, combat dryness, and achieve a healthy and long-lasting glow.

What Are the Benefits?

Patients who want to naturally achieve a healthy glow and smoother skin without changing the shape of their face or adding synthetic volume beneath the skin’s surface will benefit from a SKINVIVE treatment. Some of the main benefits of this injectable include:

  • It makes the skin look and feel smoother and softer
  • It improves cheek skin texture and tone
  • It increases skin moisture content to combat dryness

How Does This Allergan Injectable Work?

This Allergan product is different from the JUVÉDERM Collection of fillers because it uses modified hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring molecule in microdroplet form, to restore hydration to the cheeks. It doesn’t require a series of treatments because a single injection delivers these microdroplets just below the skin’s surface, hydrating the skin from the inside out and improving skin smoothness on the cheeks.

How Is It Different From a Biostimulator or Hyaluronic Acid-Based Filler?

This product is technically a dermal filler, even though it doesn’t add volume below the skin’s surface. It qualifies as a filler because it uses hyaluronic acid to deliver results, but the HA particles in the product enhance cheek smoothness and improve hydration. 

What Does It Treat?

This injectable is designed to improve the skin’s moisture content and promote skin radiance. It’s the perfect solution for patients who want to refresh their appearance and achieve smoother skin and a healthy glow. It treats dryness and fine lines on the cheeks and encourages a youthful appearance by helping the skin maintain adequate hydration. It also improves skin texture and tone by increasing skin hydration to create a more uniform complexion.

What Should I Expect From This Anti-Aging Treatment?

The SKINVIVE treatment process is gentle and virtually painless. Before administering the product, we will cleanse your skin and prepare it for treatment. Numbing cream is available for patients upon request. Treatments are quick and take approximately 15 minutes to complete. When your treatment is over, you can resume your normal daily activities.

When Will I Notice the Results?

The results of this treatment are immediate. As soon as your appointment is over, you will notice improved skin texture and a visible glow in the treatment area.

Is It Part of the JUVÉDERM Collection?

This product is made by Allergan, the company that created BOTOX, the JUVÉDERM Collection, and other popular cosmetic treatments, products, and devices. It’s technically a dermal filler, but it doesn’t add volume below the skin’s surface and is not part of the JUVÉDERM Collection. It’s a standalone injectable from the Allergen brand with the specific purpose of improving skin hydration with its hyaluronic acid-based formula.

How Long Will My Results Last?

After your first treatment, you will enjoy your results for up to six months. Patients who want to maintain their long-term results must schedule maintenance sessions every six months to enjoy smooth, glowing skin indefinitely.

Can It Be Combined With Other Injectables?

SKINVIVE pairs well with other cosmetic products and treatments. Patients who want to fill hollow areas, smooth lines and wrinkles, add natural volume below the skin’s surface or reshape their faces will be able to do so with one of the dermal fillers from the JUVÉDERM Collection. It also pairs well with neuromodulators like BOTOX, Dysport, XEOMIN, and Jeuveau, which smooth expression lines on the upper half of the face resulting from repetitive muscular movements and the natural aging process.

After we confirm that this injectable is right for you at your pre-treatment consultation, we will make other treatment recommendations, give you more details about our cosmetic services, and design your comprehensive treatment plan.

Is There Downtime?

After your SKINVIVE treatment, you will be able to resume most of your normal daily activities, but it may take up to two weeks for your skin to heal. Patients must avoid strenuous exercise for the first 24 hours and avoid touching the treatment area. It’s also important to avoid alcohol consumption, makeup application, and sleeping face down for the first day.

At the end of your appointment, we will provide you with a complete list of aftercare instructions so you know how to care for the injection sites to ensure the best results.

Am I a Good Candidate?

The best candidates for this hyaluronic acid-based filler are patients who want to subtly enhance their appearance, want smoother skin, and who want to improve skin hydration and achieve a natural and lasting glow. Patients should be in good health and have skin free of an infection in the planned treatment area, understand the aftercare instructions, and have realistic expectations about the treatment and the results. Pregnant and nursing women don’t qualify for treatment.
