Happy Red, White and BLUE Light?!

Blue Light HEV Protection

While most of us will be celebrating the Fourth of July outside, we think of only protecting our skin from the rays of the sun. But what about the selfies you will be taking and the texts you’ll be checking? Did you know there is a dangerous light emitting from our screens (smartphone, tablet, monitor) that can cause long-term damage to our skin?

Science is now seeing an increase in damage to all skin layers caused by HEV (High Energy Visible) light, otherwise known as blue light, that could be worse than the sun! This damage can cause early aging symptoms such as sagging, wrinkling, loss of elasticity, and hyperpigmentation (brown spots).

Now, before you chuck your phone and retreat to a cave, here are some easy, all in one products to add to your anti-aging arsenal.

Blue light causes free radical damage which leads to melanin activation (brown spots, uneven skin tone) and breaks down the fibers that make our skin smooth and supple. The easiest way to protect against blue light damage is to apply a sunscreen with antioxidant protection within the formulation. Antioxidants counter oxidative stress by giving our cells an additional boost of protection. In other words adding one of these sunscreens to your skincare routine will not only protect against the suns harmful rays, but also protect you from the blue light being emitted in our environment and technology devices.

Now go out there and enjoy Independence Day AND your selfies . . . Don’t forget to reapply every two hours!!!

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.
