Optimal hydration is critical for the skin’s appearance and health.1 Yet, as we age, its inherent ability to stay hydrated decreases,2 causing it to lose its original sheen and smoothness. Hydration, when harnessed properly, can restore not only the moisture but also the skin’s suppleness.3 At JH Med Spa in San Diego, part of John Hilinski Facial Plastic Surgery, we’re excited to introduce Skinvive, a revolutionary skin enhancement treatment crafted to refresh, rejuvenate, and restore your skin’s inherent glow.
