SKINVIVE™ by JUVÉDERM® in Orange County

Time, age, lack of sleep, and improper hydration can all leave you looking tired and worn out. Using quality skin care products, getting eight hours of quality sleep, and staying well hydrated can make a significant difference in the appearance and health of your skin.

The JUVÉDERM® collection of hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers has added a different type of hyaluronic acid-based skin care product, the first FDA-approved microdroplet injectable treatment to address skin texture and elasticity. SKINVIVE by JUVEDERM in Orange County could improve your skin and help you look more awake and refreshed, even when you are not.


Skinvive is an injectable hyaluronic acid-based gel that addresses your skin’s superficial layers to boost hydration and leave you with a glow that can last up to six months. Other products from JUVÉDERM function as dermal fillers, drawing hydration into the area to add contour or reduce the visible signs of aging, but SKINVIVE boosts hydration to leave your skin looking refreshed.

SKINVIVE is FDA-approved to improve facial smoothness and may help add subtle definition. The product is thinner and less cohesive than other dermal fillers, so it can spread more easily and disperse throughout the upper layers of the skin, helping to boost hydration and improve overall skin quality and radiance.

Since it does not act like a traditional dermal filler, SKINVIVE is in its own category of injectables called skin boosters. The product is as close to medical-grade skin care in an injectable as possible.

What Are the Advantages and Disadvantages?

Like other skin care products or medical-grade skin care, SKINVIVE™ by JUVÉDERM® has advantages and disadvantages. SKINVIVE has been proven to improve smoothness and texture for up to six months, especially when used with quality skin care products. This can be very helpful when addressing fine lines and dry skin.

After the injection, you will see small immediate results, and these improve during the following few weeks. Since the product uses hyaluronic acid in a form naturally found in the skin, there is minimal risk of an allergic reaction. Compared with other dermal fillers, there is no risk of creating an overfilled look.

While most people find the product lasts up to six months, you may need a touch-up after one month to achieve your desired results. The treatment involves a series of injections, which typically take longer during your office visit than with other dermal fillers.

The microdroplet product is injected directly under the skin, which can leave small bumps for up to 24 hours until it spreads, and there is a greater chance of slight bruising.

SKINVIVE in Orange County is designed to add hydration to the skin that results in greater radiance, but it is not truly designed as a dermal filler to add volume. Dr. Lenore Sikorski could talk with you about the realistic expectations of any volume changes you may expect.

Am I a Good Candidate?

SKINVIVE™ by JUVÉDERM® is approved for all skin colors and types. The product is suitable for anyone who notices dullness in their skin and would like to improve hydration, ultimately improving skin quality.

The product is beneficial for those who maintain their hydration levels and get adequate sleep each night but still do not see the benefits of these practices. When you are trying to target volume loss and want the benefits of SKINVIVE, you should talk with Dr. Sikorski about your options. She is on your journey with you and could work on a personalized plan to help you look like the best version of yourself.

What to Expect During Recovery

There is little to no recovery time after SKINVIVE™ by JUVÉDERM® treatments in Orange County. Like other types of dermal injectables, you should avoid makeup, exercise, and sun exposure within the first 24 hours. When you are bothered by the skin bumps or bruising that may occur, you might consider receiving your treatment on Friday and staying home for the weekend.
