What is the procedure for Skinvive injectable gel treatment?

The first step for any cosmetic treatment is to schedule a consultation with expert board-certified dermatologist Dr. Michele Green at her Upper East Side New York City dermatology office. At the consultation, you will discuss your treatment needs and aesthetic goals, and Dr. Green will decide about the treatment or series of treatments that will best meet your needs. If you are dealing with dry skin on the cheeks, Skinvive injectable treatment may be your best option. When you arrive at the office for treatment, Dr. Green may apply a topical anesthetic to the skin at the injection site to improve patient comfort during the procedure. Skinvive also contains an anesthetic called lidocaine, ensuring patients feel minimal discomfort during treatment. The injections will be quick, and patients can immediately return to their regularly scheduled activities without downtime. Most patients experience mild side effects, such as swelling and discoloration at the injection site, which should resolve on their own within 30 days.

How long do results last?

The results of Skinvive skin hydrating treatment are long-lasting and become apparent after only one treatment session, meaning no additional treatment sessions are necessary until the effects of the treatment begin to wear off. According to the clinical trials, most patients still noted the revitalizing effects of the treatment six months after receiving the injections, meaning that the treatment results can be visible for at least six months. Once the effects of the treatment begin to fade, patients can schedule a maintenance appointment with Dr. Green for continued skin smoothness.

What are the side effects?

There are several common side effects that patients may experience after receiving the injections, which can include;

  • Swelling at the injection site
  • Bruising, redness, or discoloration
  • Lumps, bumps, or firmness at or near the injection site
  • Pain and tenderness

These side effects are typically mild, meaning they do not prevent patients from performing their regular activities, and they will typically resolve on their own within 30 days of receiving the treatment. Some patients also reported more moderate side effects, such as abrasions and papules at the injection site, though this is a more uncommon side effect. If side effects
