Can SKINVIVETM Help With Dry Winter Skin?

There is a common belief that you are only at risk of dehydration during the summer months when you sweat your liquids out. However, dehydration is as problematic during winter as it is in summer. The only difference is that most people don’t realize that they are losing fluids since they’re not sweating.

Dehydration combined with the biting winter air can leave your skin feeling really dry. This is where SKINVIVE™ by JUVÉDERM® can help, with its nurturing formula coming to your skin’s aid. Let’s find out more about SKINVIVE™ and how it can help you deal with the winter air.

What Is SKINVIVE™?

SKINVIVE™ is the first (and so far, only) HA microdroplet injectable approved for the skin by the FDA. Its purpose is to improve the smoothness of the skin and restore its moisture levels by binding to the existing water molecules in your skin. This way, moisture loss will be slowed down, which can offer you a more hydrated look and feel.

Developed by JUVÉDERM®, SKINVIVE™ has some similarities to the dermal filler, but the consistency and purpose is different. As SKINVIVE™ has a more watery formula, its goal is not to add volume and definition. Instead, it aims to keep water in the more superficial layers of your skin, which can prevent your complexion from looking dull. With SKINVIVE™, you can achieve a more attractive and dewy appearance.

How Is SKINVIVE™ Different From Hydrating Skincare Routines?

To keep your skin healthy and moisturized during winter, you may opt for deep moisturizing creams. While effective if you select a good product, these creams only nourish the top of your skin. This means that the moment you cleanse your face or hit the cold winter air, your complexion is at risk of drying out again.

With SKINVIVE™, the injected formula is placed superficially below your skin. It does not go as deep as regular JUVÉDERM® injections, but it’s deep enough to ensure that moisture is not lost. This improves the hydration of your skin internally and is more effective than any other serum.

Benefits of SKINVIVE™ During Winter

Here is why we recommend using SKINVIVE™ during the winter season:

  • Natural-Looking Results
  • Some women and men avoid dermal fillers simply because they believe it will change their facial profile. With SKINVIVE™, this is not the case. The watery formula of the product will settle in your skin without adding extra volume. This means that you can achieve natural results.

  • Stronger Skin Barrier
  • Hyaluronic acid can strengthen your skin barrier, which is attacked from all sides during winter. By using SKINVIVE™, you may be less prone to irritations, which are often caused by the cold. Hyaluronic acid also has anti-inflammatory properties, which can reduce skin redness that is associated with dry skin and cold weather.

  • Helps Hold Moisture
  • The humectant property in hyaluronic acid can make it bind to water molecules, which not only prevents water molecules from slipping out of the skin, but it also improves the efficiency of your skincare routine.

  • Long-Lasting Results
  • SKINVIVE™ has the potential to last for up to six months. So, if you get the injections at the beginning of the cold season, you should feel and see the effects until spring and even beyond. Alongside your usual skincare routine, you can look forward to protecting and strengthening the quality of your skin.

The Bottom Line

SKINVIVE™ is a great alternative to help your skin survive the cold winter air. Thanks to the hyaluronic acid microdroplets, you can achieve that dewy, moisturized look that says, “Healthy skin.” Contact Metropolitan Skin Clinic and set up an appointment for SKINVIVE™!
