You’re Always the Right Age for a Glow-Up
Dull, dry skin during winter or any time of year knows no bounds. It can be a struggle for Gen Zers, Baby Boomers, and the generations in between, as it highlights skin imperfections and makes even fine lines look like deep wrinkles. Skin appears lifeless instead of glowing.
You may try hard to improve this dreary situation. But keeping skin properly hydrated is a challenge, especially in colder months, and it’s a multi-step process that includes what you are consuming, as well as what products you are using. Even with diligence, indoor heating, outdoor freezing, and plenty of other external factors can thwart your best efforts.
The problem is, to really get a dewy glow, you need to hydrate from the inside out and lock in that moisture, which is more than you can expect of even a concerted exfoliation and moisturizing skincare regimen.
The amazing news is that the problem of dry, lifeless skin has been on the minds of the experts and scientists at Allergan too. The company, already known for products like BOTOX and Juvéderm, recently introduced a hyaluronic acid microdroplet injectable that hydrates below to reveal dewy skin with an alluring glow. Perfectly named, SkinVive is all about adding life back to dull skin.
How SkinVive Works
SkinVive is an FDA-approved injectable of hyaluronic acid (HA) microdroplets that is administered into the epidermal layer. This is deeper than topical products can reach, but not as deep as other HA dermal fillers you may be familiar with, like Juvéderm products.
We inject SkinVive into the cheeks, where you’ll get the most noticeable effects from hydration. Within the epidermal layer, the microdroplets spread out, hydrating the skin from below. They also boost collagen production, which benefits elasticity. The result is healthier-looking skin, a smoother surface, and rosy cheeks.
Benefits and Boosts
Because SkinVive enhances the skin rather than filling lines or adding volume like most dermal fillers, it offers a solution to patients of any age (21+) who suffer from dull skin. The effects last about six months, so if winter tends to leave you with a lackluster skin tone, SkinVive will get you glowing just when you need it most. In fact, you will see immediately enhanced hydration in your cheeks, and within a few days, the microdroplets will diffuse throughout the area, leading to increased smoothness and a lessening of fine lines.
And while SkinVive microdroplets are working in your epidermal layer to add smoothness, diminish crepey skin, and create a rosy glow, Allergan’s range of injectables can address other facial concerns. SkinVive is an excellent complement to BOTOX and Juvéderm fillers because it focuses on a different issue.
BOTOX is known worldwide for its ability to relax the muscles that create lines on the forehead, between the eyebrows, and at the corners of the eyes (crow’s feet). Juvéderm products include a variety of injectable fillers that treat facial lines and wrinkles, add volume to cheeks, plump lips, or define the jawline. Restylane from Galderma is another hyaluronic acid filler that smooths wrinkles, sculpts lips, and improves facial features. All these treatments pair well with SkinVive’s hydrating effects.
