        What is
        SkinVive™ (Volite™)?

        SkinVive™, formulated with Hyaluronic Acid, leverages this naturally occurring compound found in the body. When injected into the skin, it stimulates collagen and elastin production and remarkably retains water—up to 1000 times its weight—for next-level hydration. This results in a revitalized, glowing complexion.


        How Does SkinVive™ Work?

        Precise injections of hyaluronic acid (HA) are strategically administered throughout the facial area, targeting the layers of the skin known as the dermis. By nourishing the skin internally, HA works to enhance skin quality, conditioning it and leading to noticeable improvements lasting up to 6 months.
