AesthyLyfe Products at Advanced ObGyn’s Med Spa

AesthyLyfe Products at Advanced ObGyn’s Med Spa

Blue light sound familiar to you?

Probably not, it is also known as high energy visible (HEV) light.  It comes from your computers, TVs and smart phones.

As published in Shape Magazine’s November issue; HEV is said to penetrate the skin more deeply than UV rays and damage collagen, hyaluronic acid, and elastin. There is some evidence that the light may also worsen pigmentation problems, such as Melasma (brown splotches). There is no true evidence tying it to skin cancers and deep wrinkles. Although it is still too new for long-term study results.  Even if you wear your sunscreen daily, many formulas don’t protect against HEV. ZO Skin Health, by Dr. Zein Obaji,MD introduces the latest skin care science to deliver at-home products with in-office strength.  Ossential Daily Power and Defense was recognized in Shape Magazine as “definitely worth investing in”.

DPD is working double duty to help hydrate and protect against HEV light. It’s great for all skin types to help DNA repair and antioxidant protection.

At Advanced OBGYN- Med Spa we are thrilled to have ZO Skin Health in our office and are able give our patients not only the treatment, but the protection their skin needs!!
