A Derm Shares Everything You Need to Know About Skinvive

I love that Skinvive offers a boost of hydration at the deeper levels of the skin. Skin dehydration is usually the cause of fine lines and wrinkles, and that’s something I’ve been dealing with myself. I’m super interested in trying out this treatment, so I asked Alexiades what kind of results we can expect after getting this.

“Skin will immediately appear smoother and more luminous. In my first author-randomized, multi-center, evaluator-blind, controlled pivotal clinical study, 58% and 56% of patients treated with Skinvive by Juvéderm saw a ≥ 1 point improvement on the Allergan Cheek Smoothness Scale (ACSS) at one month and six months respectively. In a patient-reported satisfaction-with-skin questionnaire, 63% of patients were satisfied with how radiant their skin looked at six months compared with 11% before treatment (Alexiades et al Dermatologic Surgery 2023),” Alexiades says.

Another key way you can maintain results is by using the right skincare. There are so many products out there that can give your skin a hydration boost and glow. Luckily for us, Alexiades also has an incredible line of products that works great for this. She explains, “One of the reasons I obtain the best results in the world post-procedure is because my patients utilize Macrene Actives following any procedure, from injectables to lasers. This increases the efficacy of the outcome multifold, such that instead of a series of treatments, patients often report they only need one. It is common in my practice for patients to decrease their need for injectables such as botulinum toxin (Botox) or fillers to only once a year because of continued use of Macrene Actives.”

“In my patented formulations, I have incorporated all the classes of actives that one would ideally require to restore the skin to the way it was before starting to deteriorate at roughly the age of 25,” she continues. “These classes include peptides for boosting skin components, microencapsulated hyaluronic acid to augment the result of injectables such as Skinvive, antioxidants to repair damage due to exposures, barrier restorers, redness reducers, brighteners, and the list goes on.”

As far as pricing goes, this one is on the steep side, so you have to be prepared to invest if you’re looking to get the treatment. Alexiades says it can run you anywhere from $500 to $2000 annually, depending on what your skin goals are.
