Skin Booster Injectables

Thanks to their convenience, simplicity, and safety, injectables are an increasingly popular cosmetic treatment.

Most patients are familiar with dermal fillers like Juvederm® and neurotoxins like Botox®. These treatments restore lost facial volume, enhance features, or smooth out wrinkles. That’s not all injectables can do, however.

Rapaport Plastic Surgery is proud to offer skin booster injectables, giving you an effective yet convenient boost to your skin’s health and radiance. We use SKINVIVE™ by Juvederm® to help patient unlock their complexion’s healthiest glow.

Like many other cosmetic injectables, SKINVIVE™ by Juvederm® is safe for almost anyone. One of the benefits of injectables is their ease and low risk. Juvederm® products like SKINVIVE™ are made with hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance that keeps your skin hydrated and has very little chance of allergic reactions. This skin booster injectable is safe for all skin types and tones. We may not recommend this product for patients who are pregnant or have an active skin condition in the treatment area.

Since SKINVIVE™ by Juvederm® is intended to hydrate the skin, it especially benefits patients with dry, dull, or aging skin. Keeping your skin hydrated can also help minimize wrinkles and other signs of aging. You may find skin booster injections are a great way to protect your skin during seasons of dry weather or revitalize it after stress, travel, or illness.

You’ve probably seen hyaluronic acid listed as an ingredient in moisturizers and other skincare products. However, your skin can’t always absorb this ingredient to reap its full benefits. Congested skin, in particular, doesn’t absorb as well. By injecting HA into the skin directly, you can ensure its full benefits for hydrating your skin.

Hyaluronic acid is a water-attracting molecule. It naturally declines with age, sun damage, and other factors. Restoring your skin’s moisture with an HA skin booster can improve skin tone and texture. It can also increase collagen production for improved elasticity and younger-looking skin. SKINVIVE™ by Juvederm® offers many of the benefits of a microneedling or laser resurfacing treatment but with far less discomfort or downtime.

Skin booster injections are fast and easy. Once your skin is prepped, one of our providers will make several small injections in each cheek. The SKINVIVE™ microdroplet formula disperses, infusing your skin with moisture-boosting HA. Since the injectable also contains lidocaine, patients experience little to no discomfort.

SKINVIVE™ injections take just 10-20 minutes, making it a convenient lunch break procedure. If desired, patients can receive other injectables simultaneously, such as lip fillers or Botox®. This may slightly increase the treatment time.

There is no downtime after skin booster injections and little to no side effects. You can leave our office and immediately resume your daily routine after the treatment. Like other injectables, SKINVIVE™ by Juvederm® may cause minor bruising or swelling at the injection sites. This typically subsides within a day or two, and our team’s gentle technique limits side effects.

Though skin boosters require no downtime, there are a few steps you should take to minimize swelling and maximize results. Patients should avoid strenuous exercise, heat, sun exposure, and alcohol for 24 hours after treatment.

SKINVIVE™ by Juvederm® immediately hydrates your skin with hyaluronic acid. Patients can see an immediate improvement in their complexion, with softer, smoother, and glowing skin. These results continue to improve for the following month. This skin booster can help reduce fine lines, rough texture, and redness by moisturizing dry skin.

Skin booster results last approximately six months. You can have maintenance treatments as needed to keep your skin soft and radiant year-round. With regular treatments, your skin’s health and vibrancy may improve even further. Proper skincare, avoiding sun damage, and a healthy lifestyle can also help preserve your enhanced complexion.
