Achieving smoother, more radiant skin is now easier than ever. Center for Plastic Surgery is pleased to introduce a groundbreaking addition to our skin rejuvenation treatments: SKINVIVE by JUVÉDERM. For our patients from Ann Arbor, Plymouth, Brighton, MI, and surrounding communities, this innovative product creates luminous, youthful-looking skin and marks a new era in nonsurgical aesthetic care.


SKINVIVE is a “skin booster,” a hyaluronic acid microdroplet injection awarded FDA approval in May 2023. It is specifically formulated to improve skin smoothness in the cheeks by hydrating from within. By harnessing the power of hyaluronic acid, SKINVIVE helps maintain the skin’s softness and inherent moisture, improving skin texture and enhancing its suppleness and radiance.

How Does SKINVIVE Work?

Hyaluronic acid—an ingredient you may recognize from top-tier moisturizers and serums—is a naturally occurring substance in the skin that diminishes with age and sun exposure. The secret to SKINVIVE lies in its modified hyaluronic acid (HA) formulation.

The modified hyaluronic acid boosts your skin’s internal hydration for a plump, supple look that lasts much longer than the effects of topical skincare products. SKINVIVE’s HA is engineered to work beneath the skin’s surface, delivering hydration directly to where it’s most beneficial. The result? A complexion that looks refreshed and vibrant and feels deeply nourished from within.

What Is a SKINVIVE Treatment Like?

SKINVIVE is a straightforward, minimally invasive treatment designed to enhance your skin’s texture and glow with minimal downtime. During the session, our skilled practitioners will carefully administer small injections of SKINVIVE beneath the skin, targeting areas that will benefit most from hydration and smoothness.

SKINVIVE contains lidocaine for your comfort, but additional numbing options may be available if needed. The injection process is quick—usually about 15 minutes—allowing you to fit it comfortably into your busy schedule. Post-treatment, you can expect to resume your daily activities immediately following the procedure. You’ll notice a gradual improvement in your skin’s smoothness over the following months.

How Is SKINVIVE Different From Dermal Fillers?

While traditional dermal fillers are designed to sculpt and contour the face, SKINVIVE takes a different approach. Its purpose is not to alter the face’s shape but to invigorate the skin. Administered via microdroplet injections just beneath the skin’s surface, SKINVIVE aims to achieve a naturally silky, glowing appearance without changing your facial contours.

Clinically Proven Results

SKINVIVE by JUVÉDERM stands on a foundation of clinical success, with studies showcasing substantial enhancements in skin texture and luminosity. Patients have reported results lasting up to 6 months following their treatment.

Who Is a Good Candidate for SKINVIVE?

SKINVIVE by JUVÉDERM is ideal for anyone seeking a refreshed look with smooth, hydrated cheeks and a healthy glow.

Combining Treatments for Optimal Results

SKINVIVE can be beautifully paired with other treatments for those seeking comprehensive facial rejuvenation. When combined with neuromodulators such as BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® or with dermal fillers, SKINVIVE can help turn back the clock on aging and significantly enhance the overall health and beauty of your skin.
