SKINVIVE by Juvéderm for a smooth, glowing complexion 

One of the best ways to improve skin quality is by enhancing hydration. SKINVIVE improves skin quality with hyaluronic acid. When injected below the skin’s outer layer, HA can attract and retain moisture at an incredible rate, which improves the quality of your skin. This revolutionary new HA gel provides lasting hydration that cannot be achieved with topicals alone. When the dermal layer benefits from better hydration, your skin will naturally have a smoother, more youthful appearance without the need for fillers. 

Juvéderm’s SKINVIVE HA injectable filler is a great option for men and women, age 21 and older, looking to enhance the appearance of their skin. With as little as one treatment, SKINVIVE can leave your skin looking:    

  • Smooth, tighter skin 
  • Youthful, glowing and radiant complexion
  • Hydrated and healthier skin
  • Refreshed appearance

Getting your injections at Artemedica 

You can be sure that when you receive your SKINVIVE injections at Artemedica, your appointment will be comfortable and your results stunning. SKINVIVE injectable HA gel contains a small amount of local anesthetic (lidocaine) which numbs the injection site, so that any discomfort or redness will be minimal. Patients typically report no pain at all but may experience a brief pinch. You may also be offered an ice pack or topical anesthetic to help with any irritation or swelling.

If you do feel any discomfort or anxiety before or during your treatment, you can always ask your provider about PRO NOX


After your treatment ends, you can return to your daily routine with minimal recovery and no downtime. Some patients experience swelling, bruising and redness at the injection site(s), but this should dissipate within a few days. If you experience any discomfort, apply an ice pack to the treated areas. 


Most clinical study participants who received injections of SKINVIVE HA gel reported that the skin on their cheeks looked smoother immediately after just one injection. Some patients required one more treatment for optimal results. After receiving their optimal treatment of SKINVIVE injection, most patients reported smooth skin that lasted six months or more.

SKINVIVE by Juvéderm Frequently Asked Questions 

What is SKINVIVE? 

Juvéderm SKINVIVE is a hyaluronic acid (HA) injectable for men and women seeking to achieve relief from fine lines in the cheeks, and a healthy, radiant glow that lasts for more than six months.  

Is SKINVIVE safe? 

SKINVIVE is a toxin-free, injectable hyaluronic acid (HA) gel. HA is naturally found in the body, so rejection is highly unlikely, and side effects are typically minimal. SKINVIVE injections are an incredibly safe procedure with very little discomfort and zero down time required.  

How does SKINVIVE work? 

SKINVIVE by JUVÉDERM hydrates the skin from within for lasting benefit. Rather than augment the skin with a filler, it acts to hydrate the skin on a deep level that cannot be achieved with lotions. The injectable HA gel flows easily into the skin. The gel includes a small amount of lidocaine (local anesthetic) to increase comfort during the injection.  

How long will my results last? 

With as little as one SKINVIVE injection, most patients report results lasting six months, with some reporting effects lasting for nine months or more. To achieve optimal results, some patients may need an optional second dose.

Roderic Wallace Trusts Dr. Victor Lacombe

“Probably one of Dr. Lacombe’s greatest assets is his intuitive understanding of what it takes to create a very natural yet aesthetically pleasing result. In my case, a brow lift opened up my eyes, a subtle lift to the tip of my drooping nose dealt with the negative effects of gravity, a small chin implant balanced a newly sculpted neck and stronger jaw line… yes, a number of procedures done at one time, but oh so worth it in the long run. I can enthusiastically endorse Victor as one of the finest plastic surgeons around.*”
