SKINVIVE™ by Juvéderm at Total Aesthetics

At Total Aesthetics, we're proud to offer SKINVIVE™ by Juvéderm in Westport, CT, at our private and luxurious aesthetic facility. This exceptional treatment combines innovation and artistry, which brings a new dimension of non-surgical rejuvenation to our patients, helping them achieve natural and youthful results.


This treatment is a totally unique kind of hyaluronic acid filler that is used to smooth the skin, improve texture, add hydration, and eliminate very fine wrinkles. It’s the first and only FDA-approved microdroplet HA filler. In the United States SKINVIVE has approval to smooth the cheeks but it’s truly a game changer for other hard to treat areas with fine wrinkling such as the perioral area as well as the forehead and neck. As SKINVIVE is injected into the upper layer of the skin it gently diffuses throughout a large treatment area to produce a natural “lake-like” effect.

SKINVIVE vs. Hyaluronic Acid Fillers

While many hyaluronic acid fillers focus solely on adding volume, for our patients in Westport SKINVIVE goes a step further. By infusing the skin with essential moisture, SKINVIVE smoothes the skin in a way that provides a vibrant glow from the inside out and helps correct imperfections like fine lines and wrinkles. It’s the only microdroplet treatment that hydrates the skin from within!

This dual-action approach results in a lasting smoothness and glow-like radiance that enhances your overall complexion. The advanced microdroplet technology provides even and seamless smoothing in only one treatment. Because SKINVIVE is non-volumizing, there’s no risk of the "overfilled," unnatural appearance sometimes associated with traditional fillers.

Is SKINVIVE painful?

With SKINVIVE Westport patients will experience minimized discomfort through the addition of lidocaine. It is generally considered very tolerable by the majority of patients. For some patients we apply a topical anesthesia product prior to injection but most patients find this unnecessary.


Because SKINVIVE is hyaluronic acid based it has the benefit of the long track-record of safety and predictability that HA products enjoy. As an HA-based product it is also moldable and dissolvable should the need arise.

How long does SKINVIVE last?

The results typically last six months or longer, and maintenance treatments may be recommended to prolong the benefits.

Can I combine SKINVIVE with other cosmetic treatments?

SKINVIVE can be combined with other treatments including Botox, and Dr. O’Connelll will advise you on the most suitable combination of procedures to achieve your desired skincare goals.

How much does SKINVIVE cost?

The cost of SKINVIVE may vary based on the treatment plan that is customized for your specific needs but it is significantly less expensive than other HA products on a syringe-by-syringe basis.

What areas can be treated with SKINVIVE?

While SKINVIVE currently has US FDA approval for improving skin smoothness and fine lines of the cheeks, this product has great potential for use elsewhere in the face and even in the body as “off-label” use. Westport plastic surgeon, Dr. O’Connell, uses SKINVIVE for perioral wrinkles. Other potential uses include the forehead and in the neck for those troubling and difficult to treat transverse lines.

What can SKINVIVE do for me?

SKINVIVE can achieve uniform and natural cheek smoothing, enhancing your facial contours overall as well as infusing your skin with moisture. This innovative injectable treatment can address various skincare concerns such as fine lines, wrinkles and other imperfections and provide a wide range of benefits. Our Westport, CT, SKINVIVE patients enjoy:

  • Youthful radiance with lasting cheek smoothness
  • Natural-looking results
  • No need for a series of treatments
  • Minimal to no downtime
  • Skin hydration - the only microdroplet treatment that hydrates from within
  • Suitable for all skin types
  • Improvement in skin imperfections such as fine lines, wrinkles and some scars
  • Potential for use in other areas of the face, neck and body.

Am I a candidate for SKINVIVE?

Ideal candidates are over 22 years old and are typically looking to improve rough, bumpy, uneven skin on their cheeks or have areas with fine wrinkles such as the forehead, neck and perioral region. SKINVIVE is designed to be compatible with all skin types, so it is an optimal choice for a wide range of individuals. If you have an allergy or sensitivity to lidocaine, you should avoid this treatment. Safety of SKINVIVE during pregnancy and in breastfeeding females, and in patients under 22 years has not been established.
