SKINVIVE in Irvine, CA

Smooth, Glowing Skin From Within

The cheeks make up the largest part of the face, so when they lose their radiance, the skin tends to take on a dull, aged appearance. Creams, exfoliators, and moisturizers are often used to combat bumpiness, dullness, and uneven texture. But these methods are often unsuccessful and can be expensive. SKINVIVE is an exciting new injectable gel treatment from Juvéderm that focuses on the skin and can provide exceptionally smooth, glowing cheeks in one session. We strive to deliver the best SKINVIVE Irvine has to offer.

SKINVIVE by Juvéderm at Total Dermatology

Led by board-certified dermatologist Dr. Nissan Pilest, our aesthetic medical team understands that our patients' comfort and exceptional care are top concerns. We do our best to ensure patients with any background feel at ease and receive the most effective and innovative treatments. With SKINVIVE in Irvine at Total Dermatology, we can transform your skin in our sophisticated and modern facility.


The first ever FDA-approved hyaluronic acid microdroplet injectable gel, SKINVIVE can achieve what no other injectable can.

SKINVIVE uses a unique consistency and formulation to evenly and seamlessly smooth the cheeks and infuse the skin with moisture for a consistent and noticeable glow. SKINVIVE is safe and effective for all skin types and requires virtually no downtime.

SKINVIVE vs. Other Hyaluronic Acid Fillers

While SKINVIVE is made with hyaluronic acid like many other dermal fillers, this formula is a different consistency, has a unique goal, and is injected higher in the layers of the skin. Other HA fillers are used to plump or enhance from beneath and are injected deeper under the skin, sometimes into the subcutaneous tissue or even near the bone. In contrast, SKINVIVE is injected right under the top layer and is used to improve the skin's surface texture.

What can SKINVIVE do for me?

Bumpy, dull, dehydrated skin can be a source of frustration, whereas glowing cheeks provide a youthful, more radiant appearance that affects your whole face. SKINVIVE restores and rejuvenates your cheeks with a natural-looking brilliance.

Our Irvine SKINVIVE patients can enjoy the following benefits:

  • Smooth cheek skin
  • Intense hydration
  • Radiant glow
  • Minimally invasive with little to no downtime
  • Non-surgical procedure

Am I a candidate for SKINVIVE?

Ideal candidates for SKINVIVE include those looking to improve skin texture or very fine lines on the cheeks. Those with deeper wrinkles or creases will benefit more from traditional HA dermal fillers. Patients with any sensitivity or allergy to lidocaine should also avoid this treatment.

Consultation and Preparation

The best way to determine which type of injectable or other treatment is best for your skin needs is to consult Dr. Pilest. As a nationally recognized Expert Injector, Dr. Pilest can determine if you are a good candidate for SKINVIVE and create a tailored treatment plan. This plan will also include detailed information on any necessary preparations for the procedure.

SKINVIVE Procedure

We may use a topical numbing cream at the beginning of your treatment to provide maximum comfort. Then, the injectable gel will be administered strategically into the cheeks by Dr. Pilest using very fine needles. The appointment typically only takes about 15 to 30 minutes, and a single session is usually all needed.

Results, Recovery, and Aftercare

No downtime is needed after SKINVIVE, and regular activities can be resumed immediately. However, some patients experience mild swelling or redness that resolves quickly. Typically, optimal results are seen after about one month, and most of our Orange County SKINVIVE patients enjoy results for up to six months.
