Vitamin C For Skin Care

Vitamin C for Skin

April 4th is National Vitamin C Day, but we celebrate this cult classic ingredient year-round.

There’s a reason Vitamin C is featured in so many medical-grade products, and why it’s often called the Holy Grail of beauty products, oral or topical:

• Accelerates the production of both collagen and elastin, which help keep the skin plump and firm

• Helps prevent premature aging of the skin, restoring a youthful, smooth appearance

• Antioxidant properties combat unwanted dark spots and aging caused by sun damage

• Helps inhibit the production of the enzyme that aids in the production of melanin, preventing hyperpigmentation (It won’t fade away normal dark skin pigmentation, only the abnormal melanin deposits caused by sun damage.)

• Helps skin retain water, keeping it plump and smooth and preventing it from becoming too oily or dry

• Minimizes redness thanks to its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties

• Help mend damaged capillaries that cause skin redness, creating a smoother, more even complexion

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.

All the front desk staff are warm, friendly and professional and Denise is the best for laser, she goes above to make you feel comfortable and at ease.
