LAVIV - Filler of the future

Recently approved by the FDA to improve the look of smile lines, LAVIV™, is like nothing we’ve seen before. This injectable uses your body’s own cells to fill smile lines, delivering the most natural results.

What is LAVIV™?
LAVIV™ is made up of collagen-producing cells called fibroblasts, which are isolated and grown from your own skin cells. Fibroblasts are cells that produce collagen, which provides firmness and structure to the skin. LAVIV™ is composed of at least 98% pure fibroblasts, which means that every dose of LAVIV™ is as unique as you are.

How does it work?
A skin sample taken from behind the ear is send to Fibrocell Science's FDA-inspected manufacturing facility where it is expanded into millions of new fibroblast cells. These cells are then cultured and frozen until they are ready to be injected. All of your cells are frozen and those that are not immediately used are stored at the manufacturing facility for future use. Your LAVIV™ fibroblast cell therapy is ready in about 3 months.

How many injections are needed for best results?

For best results you need three separate sessions of injections, spaced three to six weeks apart. Check with your plastic surgeon or dermatologist for more information on LAVIV™ fibroblast cell therapy.

As with any treatment, a good skin care regimen is a must to maintain the results. We recommend iS Clinical Youth Complex to plump up fine lines and wrinkles, HydroPeptide HydroStem+6 to regenerate cells and DDF Amplifying Elixir to boost the depleting moisture barrier by up to 70%.
