Is Blue Light Bad for Skin?

Blue Light

Whether we want to admit it or not we are all addicted to our technological devices. The average American now spends over five hours per day looking at their cell phones and nearly 10% of Americans report being on their phones for 12 hours plus!

Nearly four out of five people report using their cell phones less than the national average, meaning most of us are using our phones far more than we think. While Millennials spend their cell phone time differently than Baby Boomers, both groups spend five-plus hours looking at their phones and the damaging blue light shining from those phones.

Blue Light

While blue light had previously been viewed as a potential treatment for skin maladies, recent evidence has demonstrated blue light exposure from our cell phone obsessions are wreaking havoc on our skin and causing long term damage. The evidence is mounting of worsening skin laxity, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and photo aging. With the many hours we spend shining blue light into our faces, those issues are growing by the day.

Forever Slender MedSpa offers a solution to prevent blue light skin damage prevention and improve your skin’s natural defenses. We offer the LumiviveTM Day/Night System from SkinMedica for this very purpose. The Lumivive Day system protects from blue light damage and the Night system builds up skin restoration from damage which has already occurred.

This Lumivive system can be found both in our spa at 109 Andrew Ave. in Wayland, MA and at our online store, where you can find lots of other medical grade skin treatment products deliverable directly to your door.
