Dr. Castilla reiterates that anyone who wants to target volume loss might not be satisfied with the results they might get from Skinvive. “However, volume loss and changes in skin quality are both signs of aging and often go hand-in-hand,” she says. “These patients would likely achieve better final results from combining a filler to target volume loss and Skinvive to help with skin quality.”

Dr. Castilla adds that although the two treatments have yet to be studied in combination, she expects that she will eventually incorporate them into a comprehensive treatment plan. “Right now, it is indicated for use on the cheeks but will likely be used in other areas such as the neck, chest, or the backs of the hands.”

What are the risks?

The risks of Skinvive are the same as most other cosmetic injectables — which is to say mild and usually temporary. Dr. Green says redness, tenderness, and firmness may appear at the injection site. “Patients [can also] experience mild swelling for two to three days max and have reported no additional bruising associated with the procedure,” adds Dr. Hartman. “We recommend that patients apply ice packs to the treated areas for five to 10 minutes twice daily for three to five days after the treatment.”

As Skinvive becomes more commonplace, you may be able to get it at medspas or from your aesthetician. However, it’s always safest to stick with a board-certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon “as the risk of unwanted side effects or cosmetic results are greatly decreased,” says Dr. Green.

How much does Skinvive cost?

Exact pricing is not available yet because it’s so new, stateside. Dr. Castilla expects the price to be similar to other fillers per syringe ($600 – $1,000 or more, depending on location).

Skinvive FAQS

How soon would someone see results?

You may see some plumping shortly after, but full results wouldn’t develop for a few weeks. “It’s important to know that since the improvement is in skin quality, the results tend to be more subtle than a volumizing filler,” adds Dr. Castilla.

How does Skinvive compare to Profhilo?

Profhilo is another hyaluronic acid filler targeting dull skin that celebrities are flocking to the UK for. (It’s not FDA-approved just yet.) Profhilo has a higher concentration of hyaluronic acid, says Dr. Palm, and may help to target more dramatic signs of dehydration and aging.

What company makes Skinvive?

Allergan Aesthetics, which produces the popular filler brand Juvederm, is producing Skinvive under the Juvederm umbrella of hyaluronic acid fillers.
