SkinVive – Value It or Hype?

What’s SkinVive and is it value it?

I really want I had a definitive reply for this, however… I feel there will likely be one within the subsequent 6-9 months as this will get put into extra common use.

In the event you haven’t seen or paid consideration to the advertising and marketing hype (Allergan) on this product, you’re in all probability questioning what that is. It’s a hyaluronic acid injectable product in a syringe, but it surely’s not likely a filler.  It as an alternative acts as a long-lasting moisturizer; long-lasting as in about 6 months.

As a result of the hyaluronic acid attracts water, its declare is it offers a dewy, youthful glow to pores and skin that’s extra lasting than a facial or a cream moisturizer — it doesn’t elevate or fill something.

It was FDA accredited within the fall within the U.S., however has been in Canada and Europe for a number of years till completely different names.

Why you would possibly wish to contemplate this product:

  • It’s not loopy costly.
  • It does appear to final about 6 months on most individuals.
  • There could also be a cumulative profit in that it could possibly be higher after 2-3 remedies each six months.
  • The hydration is good, even when fairly refined.
  • Might be a terrific decide me as much as do one month earlier than a marriage or different occasion. It takes a full month to essentially see the outcomes and for any bumps to resolve.

Why you would possibly wish to save your cash and wait and see:

  • Expense. It’s about $600-700 for 2 syringes and it takes two syringes to each cheeks.
  • It’s pretty method and ability dependent. If the method isn’t good, it leaves little bumps throughout, which may take weeks to go away.
  • It clearly works higher on some pores and skin sorts than others. Youthful pores and skin tends to do higher, in my view, however the younger don’t want it a lot. It’s older pores and skin that requires it extra.
  • To date, there’s no long-lasting profit.
  • May you get the identical impact by simply investing in a quarterly fabulous facial, and a light-weight RF therapy or BBL?
