What is Skinvive?

Skinvive represents a category of cosmetic treatments that involve the strategic injection of various substances into the skin to address specific concerns and achieve desired outcomes. These injectables can range from dermal fillers that add volume to areas of the face to neuromodulators that relax muscles and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Skinvive is designed to be minimally invasive, providing visible results without the need for surgical procedures.
