At Sistine Facial Plastic Surgery in Pittsburgh, we are committed to helping you achieve the natural, stunning results you desire. We’re proud to offer SKINVIVE™ by Juvederm, the innovative hyaluronic acid microdroplet injectable that provides an advanced solution for flawless, radiant skin.


SKINVIVE™ is a revolutionary product designed to improve facial skin smoothness for adults over 21 years old, particularly in the cheek area. Unlike other fillers, the unique formulation of SKINVIVE™ targets skin texture and hydration without altering your face's shape or volume. This modified hyaluronic acid achieves a smooth skin texture and radiant glow from within the skin layers.

When paired with other injectables like BOTOX®, SKINVIVE™ provides comprehensive facial rejuvenation without surgery or downtime. You’ll experience increased hydration at the dermal layer for a naturally beautiful complexion that lasts up to six months.

  • Natural-looking outcomes: SKINVIVE™ is designed to deliver subtle and natural results so you can feel confident and look your best without appearing over-treated.
  • Quick and easy treatment: The procedure can be conveniently performed during a lunch break or after work, making it an ideal option for those with busy schedules. Most treatments take around 30 minutes and require little to no downtime.
  • Long-lasting results: SKINVIVE™ provides lasting improvement in skin texture, tone, and hydration, with results that can last up to 6 months or longer. This allows you to enjoy the benefits of the treatment for an extended period.
  • Minimally invasive and low risk: The microinjection technique used in SKINVIVE™ is minimally invasive and has a lower risk of side effects compared to more aggressive treatments, such as surgical procedures or laser resurfacing.
  • Suitable for various skin types: Patients with different skin types and concerns can benefit from SKINVIVE™, as it effectively addresses multiple signs of aging, sun damage, and other common skin issues.


To determine if this treatment is right for you, consider the following factors:

  • Age: Individuals above 18 seeking to rejuvenate their skin are usually good candidates for this treatment.
  • Skin concerns: People experiencing fine lines, wrinkles, loss of elasticity, uneven skin tone, or acne scars may benefit from SKINVIVE™.
  • General health: Good overall health with no contraindications to dermal filler injections, such as allergies to hyaluronic acid or a history of severe allergic reactions, is essential.

Importantly, some individuals may not be suitable candidates for this treatment. Factors that may contraindicate SKINVIVE™ by JUVÉDERM® include:

  • Pregnancy or breastfeeding: It is not recommended for pregnant or nursing women.
  • Allergies: If you have a known allergy to hyaluronic acid or other components of the SKINVIVE™ formula, this treatment may not be right for you.
  • Skin infections: Ensuring that any active skin infections or inflammation in the treatment area have healed before undergoing a SKINVIVE™ session is crucial.

During your consultation with Sistine’s specialists, we will evaluate your skin concerns, medical history, and aesthetic goals to ensure SKINVIVE™ is the right choice.


Your session begins with your specialist cleaning and preparing your skin, then applying a topical anesthetic to ensure your comfort during the procedure. We’ll use a fine needle or a micro-cannula to inject the SKINVIVE™ formula into the targeted areas carefully.

The treatment can be completed in as little as fifteen minutes, depending on the extent of the areas being treated. Minimal downtime is expected, allowing you to return to your daily activities shortly after the session.

After receiving the SKINVIVE™ treatment, you can expect to see the following improvements in your skin:

  • Increased hydration and suppleness
  • Restored natural elasticity, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • A more even skin tone, giving you a brighter and more youthful complexion

While individual results may vary, most clients notice visible rejuvenation within a week of the treatment. Optimal results can be seen after a series of treatments, which we’ll discuss during your consultation.


To maintain the benefits of your SKINVIVE™ treatment, follow our aftercare advice:

  1. Avoid direct sunlight and tanning beds for at least 48 hours after the treatment
  2. Refrain from using makeup or skincare products containing harsh chemicals for 24 hours
  3. Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher daily
  4. Keep your skin well-hydrated by drinking plenty of water and using an appropriate moisturizer
