Maintaining skin hydration is fundamental for its overall health and appearance.1 As the years go by, our skin’s natural capacity to retain moisture diminishes,2 often leading to several skin concerns, with diminished smoothness being a primary concern. The power of hydration can be tapped not just to moisturize, but also to bring back the skin’s innate suppleness.3 The dedicated professionals at NYC’s New York Plastic Surgical Group, a Division of Long Island Plastic Surgical Group, proudly present Skinvive, a groundbreaking skin enhancement treatment designed to invigorate, replenish, and unveil your skin’s natural luminance.
