Laviv is a personalized cell therapy that uses your own fibroblasts (skin cells that produce collagen) to improve the appearance of wrinkles that go from the sides of your nose to the corners of your mouth. Laviv is injected into your face.
How does this medication work?
Laviv is thought to work by replenishing collagen to your skin. Collagen provides firmness and structure to your skin and is essential in supporting the middle layer of your skin.
What are the beneficial effects of this medication and when should I begin to have results?
What: In clinical trials, people treated with Laviv had significantly improved appearances of smile lines than people who were not treated with Laviv.
When: Everyone responds differently to treatment, so try to be patient and follow your healthcare provider’s directions. The effects of Laviv may be seen over the course of the three-treatment regimen.
How do I know it is working?
You may notice an improvement in your smile lines after you start receiving Laviv.
