Wind, cold weather, and the conditions created by indoor heating and air conditioning can all significantly impact your skin’s health. These external factors strip away the skin’s natural moisture, leaving it dull or dry and lacking its usual luster. This can also accentuate fine lines and wrinkles, making them more noticeable.

For anyone struggling with dull or dry skin, there is an answer. SKINVIVE, brought to you by Juvéderm®, is a revolutionary hyaluronic acid microdroplet injectable designed to enhance skin quality. Utilizing the same trusted technology as Botox and the Juvéderm injectable line, it boosts hydration, elasticity, and smoothness. FDA-approved for individuals over 21, SKINVIVE, previously known as Juvederm Volite in Europe, is minimally invasive and requires no downtime.

The treatment, administered by our Nurse Injectors and Dr. Joseph A. Russo, involves the use of hyaluronic acid to improve skin texture, making it safe, effective, and adhering to FDA guidelines. The inclusion of a local anesthetic, lidocaine, ensures a comfortable experience during the procedure.
