SKINVIVE™ by JUVÉDERM® - Overview
Elevate your natural radiance without altering your inherent appearance. Administered as minute intradermal microdroplets of hyaluronic acid within the dermal layer, SKINVIVE™ by JUVÉDERM® ensures no discernible changes in facial shape or volume—just a rejuvenated complexion and healthier-looking, glowing skin.
Backed by FDA approval and clinical evidence, SKINVIVE™ by JUVÉDERM® is a modified hyaluronic acid gel delivered through intradermal microdroplets beneath the skin’s surface, enhancing hydration to refine cheek smoothness. Patients using SKINVIVE™ by JUVÉDERM® expressed satisfaction with the visibly glowing, hydrated, refreshed, and healthy appearance of their skin post-treatment compared to its pre-treatment state.
Anticipated Experience Throughout Your Treatment:
- Numerous microdroplet injections, involving the introduction of a small quantity of the product just beneath the skin’s surface, will be administered on each cheek by a specialized professional.
- Dr. Berman will comprehensively detail the procedure and furnish you with post-treatment care instructions during your appointment.
- All SKINVIVE treatments are performed by Dr. Berman himself.
- To ensure your comfort, SKINVIVE™ by JUVÉDERM® incorporates Lidocaine, a commonly used pain reliever akin to that used in dentistry.
- In the initial 24 hours post-treatment, it is advisable to limit strenuous physical activity, prolonged sun or heat exposure, and the consumption of alcoholic beverages.
Typically, a treatment session spans approximately 15 minutes, offering the added convenience of being a quick and hassle-free experience. With minimal downtime, SKINVIVE™ by JUVÉDERM® is designed for on-the-go ease, making it convenient enough to fit into your lunch break. It's worth noting that some individuals may opt for an optional touch-up if needed.
To mitigate the risk of temporary redness, swelling, and/or itching at the injection site, it is advisable to limit strenuous exercise, prolonged exposure to intense sun or heat, and the consumption of alcoholic beverages within the initial 24 hours following treatment.
It is important to acknowledge the rare but serious risk of unintentional injection into a blood vessel during dermal filler procedures. While the likelihood of this occurrence is minimal, the potential complications can be severe and, in some cases, permanent. Reported complications from facial injections include vision abnormalities, blindness, stroke, temporary scabs, or permanent scarring of the skin. Many of these events are irreversible. If you experience changes in vision, signs of a stroke (such as sudden difficulty speaking, numbness or weakness in your face, arms, or legs, difficulty walking, face drooping, severe headache, dizziness, or confusion), a white appearance of the skin, or unusual pain during or shortly after treatment, it is crucial to inform your specialist immediately.
Postponing the use of this product in areas with existing skin sores, pimples, rashes, hives, cysts, or infections is advisable, as its application may impede healing or exacerbate skin problems.
Additionally, it is important to note that the efficacy of dermal filler removal has not been thoroughly studied.
The commonly reported side effects encompass redness, lumps/bumps, swelling, bruising, pain, tenderness, firmness, discoloration, and itching. Typically, these effects resolve within seven days. If persistence occurs beyond this period, your physician may opt for treatment using medications such as antibiotics, steroids, or hyaluronidase. Additionally, there have been documented instances of inflammation, nodules, unsatisfactory results, loss or lack of improvement, allergic reactions, anxiety, blood vessel blockage, infection, dry skin, alterations in sensation, and abscess.
Notably, delayed-onset inflammation in proximity to the site of dermal filler injections is among the recognized adverse events linked with dermal fillers. As with any skin injection procedure, there exists a risk of infection.

I've been a repeat customer for years. I've had Botox, fillers and microneedling with Berman Cosmetic Surgery. Jackie and Dr. Berman are great! Always very happy with the results and pricing. Highly recommend.
I've read many great reviews on here for Dr. Berman - which is my reason for visiting. The front desk staff and he were ever so friendly, attentive and responsive. Most of the things I mentioned (obsessively) were downplayed to a more subtle solution (sometimes we need folks to check us) and this is refreshing. The prices were fair and I would say comparable to anywhere else where you may have less than a perfect experience. FYI: I received Voluma and Botox and a consult for spider vein treatment that I have already scheduled now 😁.
Dr. Berman is great, really takes the time to listen to his patient and provides an expert opinion, always honest and always wants you to look and feel like the best "you." I have been to Dr. Berman a few times and will keep coming back!
My experience with Dr. Berman has been incredible. He injected some fillers into areas of my face that I felt were aging me. He was very gentle in his approach and extremely responsive when I had questions or concerns after the procedure. I would highly recommend Dr. Berman if you are considering any plastic surgery in the future. He is very knowledgeable and doesn't push you to consider procedures or surgeries he feels you don't need. I trust him wholeheartedly.
I just had my upper lip filled and to my surprise, it was quick and painless. I'm 41 years young and i've noticed my upper lip was starting to look uneven and not as full as it use to be. Dr. Berman made my lips come to life again. I'm very pleased with the results. I highly recommend him and his staff.
I actually have great lips (to toot my own horn) but I wanted a little "mmfph"/ definition to my top lip for when I wear makeup, specifically lipstick. I decided to see Dr. Berman for this because he is known to make people look naturally fabulous. We decided on volbella because it would give me the natural look I desired since I already had full lips. I only got my top lip treated. The injections themselves weren't that bad and once Dr. Berman was done I loved the look. He did warn me however that for the next 2-5 days I may experience sensitivity to the injection sites, swelling, and even potential discomfort. I experienced all those post procedure symptoms. I actually freaked out a little bit because my top lip was so swollen I thought something was wrong. But the staff at the office reminded me that this was completely normal and the second day was going to be the worst. They were absolutely right. I got my treatment done on a Tuesday and by Friday evening I felt pretty again and it was back to exactly what I wanted. I love this office because the staff are honest and caring and Dr. Berman is such a skilled doctor and so calm and collected. If I decide to do this again, there is no question I would come back!! Thank you Dr. Berman and staff! You guys are amazing 🙂
I have been thinking about getting lip fillers for a little over a year now. I am 33 years old, and while everyone told me I had nice lips, I wanted more. Hesitant that the outcome would be the infamous “duck lip” look, I did a lot of research before making my decision to go with Dr. Berman. Not only did he take the time to explain the entire procedure to me beforehand, but he continued to talk through everything as he was injecting my lips. He made me feel comfortable every step of the way, and even explained what the healing process would be like over the next 2 weeks. I am so happy with my new look. My lips are the perfect shape & size, and very natural. I will be returning to Dr. Berman not only for lip fillers, but for all procedures going forward. I am one very happy new patient!
I went for lip fillers, only in my top lip, and my results were great, only slight swelling. The entire procedure was pretty much painless, getting the flu shot and tensing ur muscle hurts way more then this. It is like a one sec sting and then you cannot feel anything. I have a low pain tolerance. I loved how honest he was, I thought I needed filler under the eyes but he actually thought otherwise and informed me that the pigment under my eye will not go away with just fillers and made other suggestions for me. His staff was super kind and I will def be back, for many other services his office offers. I would recommend his office to family and friends.
Dr. Berman was very gentle and professional with his work detail. I felt very comfortable with him, he listened to exactly what I was looking for. I would recommend him to anyone who needs a great doctor for Lip fillers.
I am a 30 year old male. I never had any fillers done before other than some Botox. I recently visited Dr Berman to get a filler for my nasolabial folds (smile lines). The overall experience was great. Very friendly staff and the doctor did a very nice job. I am pleased with the result! I would highly recommend them.
I had visited another plastic surgery office that a friend suggested and was immediately told that I needed very expensive surgery... no discussion of any other options. I went to Dr. Berman because I had seen him several years ago for a dog bite and he was very up front and honest telling me that the ER doctor had done a fine job on the stitches and no further treatment would be necessary. After all these years, it was the same with my visit yesterday. He suggested the filler that would work best for my situation and went over all the pros and cons and made me feel very good about the treatment. I will definitely be going back to his office for future treatments. In addition, his staff is very helpful and makes you feel comfortable while you're there. Great doctor and great staff!
I've been going to Dr. Berman for years - he has kept me looking young through Botox, Juvederm, and other procedures. I have so much respect and appreciation for his efforts and my results. Dr. Berman (and his entire team) is professional, attentive, and dedicated to his clients. I am so very happy that I made the decision to make Dr. Berman my cosmetic surgeon.
Dr. Berman was very informative and helped me to decide on the best option for Juvederm. I required minimal fillers and it really took five years of my face. No bruising, and he was very gentle. Highly recommend. I also received my first treatment of Sculpture will add another review once I start to see results.
Dr. Berman does an amazing job of turning back the clock with the use of Botox and Fillers. As a wife and mom in my thirties, I rarely ever have time for myself. When I first started coming to Dr. Berman's office, he did an amazing job of thoroughly explaining to me what he would recommend for me regarding facial fillers. He also makes sure that I am comfortable during the entire visit. I am always happy with my final results and people constantly think that I am still in my twenties! I'll take that!! Thanks Dr. B!!
