Linda Behla, RN
Co-Founder and Director of Esthetic Nursing
Linda Behla has been a healthcare professional and skincare expert with extensive training since 2003. She is skilled in creating custom facial rejuvenation using combination therapy to produce natural and conservative results.
Linda’s practice includes medically supervised skincare regimes in addition to facial shaping with neuromodulators (BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport®), as well as, volumizing and stimulatory fillers.
Prior to founding HVME, she worked at a medical spa and clinic which ranks in the top 1% of facial injectors in the US.
In 2016, Linda completed Dr. Mauricio de Maio’s Voluma Masters Technique Course, becoming one of only thirty facial injectors to be trained by Dr. de Maio.
Linda is certified in Laser Hair Removal, IPL/Photofacial, Nd yag laser treatments, as well as, Fraxel, CO2 and Erbium lasers for skin resurfacing. She is also an expert in Ulthera, the state of the art treatment for skin tightening. Most recently, Linda completed training with one of Bellafill® Cosmetic’s leading US trainers.
I’m cautious with injectables and fillers, because we’ve all seen bad results in the wrong hands. Linda Behla carefully examined my skin and facial expressions, complimented my natural features, and suggested that we do a small amount of filler to soften “smile lines” and Botox/Dysport between my eyebrows. I came back a few months later, because I wanted to try a subtle filler for my lips, and she’s the best in town for that.
-Eyes and Smile-Lines: The results were PERFECT. She removed the lines that had been bothering me (I’m a furrower), without looking frozen or filled. My skin just looks healthy and refreshed. She was very careful while injecting, and kept checking to make sure the results were symmetrical.
-Lips: Linda did tiny injections of filler in strategic places along my lips. The results are EXACTLY what I wanted! She gave my lips more definition and volume, but completely natural and balanced.
-Products: I got to take home a bundle of VMV Hypoallergenic samples, which is a line that’s impossible to find around here. I’m going back for a VMV facial with their esthetician, Holly!
Clearly, Linda Behla and Dr. P are in the business to make clients feel safe, comfortable, and satisfied. Their office is bright, artful, and immaculate. Parking is pretty easy (for SF), via meters on the street or the nearby lot. And don’t forget to check out all the shops on Hayes (one block away)!
Linda is a true artist at this kind of thing. She takes her time, and really considers your face, your goals and your finances before recommending a procedure. She even considers your level of pain tolerance. During the procedures she is patient, very warm and competent. She never does a sales job on you and it’s clear that Hayes Valley is more interested in developing strong and lasting patient relationships than in turning a quick buck. I love the results from the Utherapy treatment I had done with her, and with the products she choose for me. I trust Linda implicitly and have never regretted it.
