Skinvive is a new category of injectable skin health.

Maybe 1-2 days with potential for minimal bruising. Results are an immediate glow. Results last 6+ months.
*Expectation for the duration of a product depends on many factors such as how quickly your body breaks it down, where it is placed (lips move a lot and tend to break filler down more quickly), and how much you work out.
**Please note that the descriptions above are based on our personal experience. Each injector may have a different opinion and description of the products. However, in an attempt to educate you and help you understand the different properties of the various products, We have described them as such.
Although many people fear they’ll end up with crazy big lips, frozen foreheads, and smiles- this is not the case with a highly trained hand and a listening ear! Cosmetic injections can be subtle and natural to maintain a youthful look.
A cannula is different from a regular needle. It is skinny and long like a needle, but instead of having a sharp point on the end, it is round and closed. The hole where the filler comes out is on the side. A needle is used to make a small opening or channel in the skin and then the cannula is inserted which allows the injector access under the skin to “push” through the tissues instead of “pierce” the tissues like a needle. This technique is used to reduce bruising and to use in places to avoid complications with blood vessels making this a safer alternative to utilizing a needle.
While this procedure is lowkey and many first-time clients leave saying “Oh, that’s all it was?!” there are some important steps to take for post-treatment care! It is best to avoid anything that can thin the blood or make you bruise such as aspirin, ibuprofen, or alcohol for 7 days before the injection. Filler can cause some mild swelling for 3-5 days after but resolves within the first week or two. It is best to get Filler done at least 2 weeks before any big event to make sure you have enough time to heal from the procedure.
Of course, this is by far one of the most common concerns people have when getting injected, and rightfully so! Like anything, lip injections can be done poorly, overdone, and appear “off” due to poor product choice. Our clinicians takes their time to discuss things with you to make sure you’re both on the same page with your desired results to eliminate this risk. Additionally, we can show you how your lips are looking in between pokes to make sure you are comfortable with the outcome. Our goal is to make you LOVE your injections. Plus, we don’t believe in duck lips-so no worries, pinky promise, no duck lips!
First, read the above. The same concept applies. But there is more variation in filler in that maybe one month you’ll come in and get your cheeks done. Then two months later you’ll want to get your lips done in time for Valentine’s day or a fun trip. So, you should get filler done when you’d like. Plus, everyone’s filler will last different lengths so please don’t just get your lips filled every 6 months cause some injector once told you to-cause there may still be plenty of product in there! The good news is that if you don’t need any, our practitioners will always say no. We understands that injections can become addictive in one’s quest for the holy grail of youth. But we’ll keep you in check!
Fillers are broken down naturally by your body over numerous months, depending on how much is injected, what type of product is used and where it is injected. This occurs very gradually and naturally. However, if you are dissatisfied or need any adjustment to dermal filler placements, there is the option to have it “dissolved” if seeing an undesirable effect. Hyaluronidase is a medication that immediately breaks down the dermal filler. Although this is extremely uncommon at Modern SLC. We may need to make slight adjustments, but rarely do we completely dissolve all the filler placed.
Of course, living in Utah is a common question. Technically, no fillers really move much from when you place them. So it probably wouldn’t be an issue. But then there are these people called lawyers and they LOVE opportunities to sue people. Plus, if something happened to your baby while pregnant you might try to blame it on yourself for getting injections, and let’s be honest none of that is worth it! So let’s just avoid getting things done while pregnant. However, most nursing hotlines and OB/GYNs will tell you it’s fine to do while breastfeeding. Just make sure you bring the baby with you so we can see how cute it is!
