What is the LAVIV Process?
In order to create LAVIV, Ava MD dermatologists will take a small skin sample from behind your ear to isolate and generate the skin’s fibroblasts. Fibroblasts are specific skin cells that produce collagen, an essential component that gives the skin volume and elasticity. As we age, our bodies naturally produce less and less collagen, resulting in fine lines, creases, and wrinkles. The skin sample is sent to the makers of LAVIV, Fibrocell Science, who then expand the fibroblasts to create the LAVIV therapy, which is made up of 98% of your pure fibroblasts. This process typically takes about three months.
Once your custom LAVIV therapy is ready, we can begin the treatment process, which requires three separate sessions of injections directly in the trouble areas. Each session will be spaced out by three to six weeks as well.
Since LAVIV is a process that relies on you body’s natural collagen production, the results are not immediate, instead taking a period of months to see gradual improvement. However, the full results are natural and turn back the clock on your appearance!
How Long Do LAVIV Results Last?
Many patients enjoy six months to a year of full, beautiful results following the initial three session LAVIV treatment. Depending on age, some patients begin to see improvement as early as one month in to the treatment process, while others may need a few months. Fortunately, when Fibrocell Science creates your unique LAVIV therapy injections, they create millions of new fibroblast cells that are then safely stored in cryopreservation. Any cells that are not used during the initial treatment can be used for touch up treatments in order to prolong the effects of this state-of-the-art procedure.
