Happy Knee Year!

Knee Problems: crepey skin, knee fat, body hair

“I come from a tennis playing family, so short skirts are the norm year round for us all. For ages, my mother has been complaining about unwanted and un-work-off-able knee fat and sagging, crepey skin around her knees. And I guess it’s genetic, as I’m starting to notice it too. What can I do now to stop things getting worse, and is it too late for my mom?

I’ve heard this issue called soccer knee mom, but tennis players have it too!”

Thank you, “Soccer Knee Mom”


Dear SKM!

We hear you – in fact, we get several questions a month regarding knees, so you are not alone. And, no, it’s not too late for your mom – new technologies are getting amazing results. By starting your care now, you can slow the appearance of crepey skin and sun damage. Stubborn fat on the inside of the knees is likely genetic – but there’s good news for that too.

Esthetic problems of the knee may mostly be genetic, but also (and we’re talking to you tennis player!) can be caused by the sun which can cause loss of elasticity as well as the age spots we associate with sun damage.

So first, here’s what you can do now. Sunscreen! Every time you put on that tennis skirt, apply physical/mineral sunscreen (not chemical). We suggest Revision® Skincare Intellishade® Clear or Alastin Skincare’s Hydratint Pro Mineral Sunscreen.

And, also topically, consider SkinCeuticals Body Tightening Concentrate or Alastin Skincare’s TransFORM Body Treatment to target skin laxity, texture, and crepiness. If you work on building up your collagen now, your skin will be firmer in the future.

Saggy Knee Skin Before and After


Stubborn knee fat is notoriously difficult to remove with diet and exercise because it’s an area known for having an inflated number of fat cells. As you work out or watch your calories, the size of each individual fat cell may go down, but the high concentration of fat cells in the area means your efforts don’t show.

CoolSculpting permanently removes fat cells – and can target the fat inside the knees of men and women.

Treat Knee Fat Before and After


Ugh, knees are the worst for crepey skin – it’s thin, wrinkly, and no longer bounces back. Several of our medical skin tightening therapies can be used to treat the skin of the knee area: Agnes RF Microneedling, Scarlet RF Microneedling, Ultherapy, and Venus Legacy.

Botox or Radiesse Volumizing Filler may be an option for crepey skin or fine lines.

ZWavePRO, available at our Marin Body Sculpting Suite may also be an ideal option for you.

We hope you’ll join us for a no-obligation, complimentary consultation to determine which treatment may be best for you.


ZWavePro, mentioned above as an option for tightening skin, may also be an option for those who have cellulite around the knee.

Excellent service and an overall pleasant experience. Victoria was professional and knowledgeable. She proposed treatments addressing both my anesthetic and medical concerns.. I could not be happier with the results. Also, the Receptionist, Mattie, was pleasant and efficient. I look forward to future treatments.

Hayes Valley is the best! Kate did an incredible job with Dysport removing the wrinkles from my forehead, Sandra gave me great abs and glutes with Emsculpt, and Linda gave me my youthful facial structure back with Sculptra. These women are truly amazing. So glad that I found them!

I love Hayes Valley Medical and Esthetics! I've been coming for a while now for Botox and filler treatments. Linda is AMAZING! She knows just the right amount of product needed in all the right places to bring out my best facial features. I feel more handsome every time!!

The front desk staff are super sweet and helpful. They always ask exactly what I want and I never feel like I'm being 'upsold' or encouraged to do anything other than what I came in for. I would highly recommend HVME to anybody that is on the unsure about trying some of the services they offer. You won't be disappointed. Thank you!!

Diana at the front desk is so sweet, the medical assistant was amazing & personable and Kate who did my procedure is my favorite! As I walked out and met my husband, I told him how much I enjoy being there & what a good vibe Hayes has.

Sheila and Linda took great care of me and I look younger and vibrant.  I do not trust anyone else for injectables.  Linda is careful, thoughtful, and respectful of one’s budget. I have followed her from Marin into SF and I will continue to follow her where ever she practices.
