Improve Skin Smoothness, Quality, and Hydration.

SkinVive is an injectable hyaluronic acid gel which improves skin smoothness, quality, and hydration. SkinVive helps skin feel firmer and look more radiant. Any area can be treated, including the face, neck, décolletage, and hands. Hyaluronic acid is naturally present in your skin and diminishes as we age, resulting in fine lines and a loss of plumpness. Injection of hyaluronic acid has been shown to increase collagen synthesis in the skin, which also contributes to its antiaging effect.

What to Expect

During the procedure, small amounts of SkinVive hydrating gel are injected superficially into the skin using a fine needle. SkinVive is hydrophilic, meaning that it attracts water to the skin, leaving the treated area dewy and radiant.

The number of sessions recommended depends on several factors, including the quality of your skin and desired results. Most patients require one to two sessions, spaced 4-8 weeks apart. Maintenance treatments every 6-12 months are suggested.

Our Comprehensive Approach to SkinVive

At Compass Dermatology, you'll meet with one of our board-certified dermatologists to discuss your concerns and devise a treatment plan to achieve your aesthetic goals.
Injection of SkinVive is relatively comfortable. A topical anesthetic is typically applied prior to your treatment to reduce discomfort. Tylenol one hour prior to your appointment is also recommended.

Following your treatment, your skin will be slightly red and a little bumpy for several hours. Cooling may be applied, and an antihistamine can be taken to reduce swelling. You can apply makeup the following morning, and we recommend having a full-coverage concealer on hand in case of bruising.

SkinVive FAQ

SkinVive will not change the shape of your face. It is injected superficially to smooth and hydrate the upper layers of the skin. It’s important to be aware that since the improvement is in skin quality, the results tend to be more subtle than a volumizing filler.

Yes! SkinVive can be combined with most device-based treatments (such as broadband light, Laser Genesis, and Sylfirm X radiofrequency microneedling) on the SAME day.
