Rewrite Aging And More With MD Pen

Clearer, more youthful looking skin can be just a treatment away. MD Pen is an innovative treatment that encourages the generation of new skin cells. This can even out your complexion, increase the elasticity of your skin, and reduce scar tissue. Your skin will look smoother, firmer, and younger looking.

Unlike other, more aggressive treatments, with MD Pen there is no downtime, and generally much less discomfort and sun sensitivity. Since treatments typically take only twenty to forty minutes, there is no down time.

Botox®, Dysport®, and Xeomin®

Eliminate fine lines and wrinkles from your face in as little as 2 days with an incredibly safe in office procedure. We will apply a numbing cream to your face to make your injections as painless as possible. We utilize 3 different types of “Botox” which are equally effective. Your doctor will help you choose between Botox®, Dysport®, and Xeomin®. There is no overall cost difference and results are generally equal. You may find that you respond somewhat better to one brand over another but most people have an equal response to each. All 3 work by blocking the signal from the nerve to your facial muscles so that your muscles relax and stop moving as dramatically. It is the repetitive movements that lead to wrinkling of the skin. Once we relax your facial muscles, your skin will naturally repair itself and decrease your wrinkles.

Dysport – $4 per unit

FAQ's

Does it hurt?

The needles that we use are tiny and we can also utilize numbing cream to make it even more painless for you.

What can Botox be used for?

Wrinkles across your forehead

Your “11s” (the vertical lines between your eyes)

Crows feet – the lines at the sides of your eyes form squinting and smiling

Gummy smiles – we can relax the upper lip to cause less exposure of your upper gums when you smile

Lip pop – we can relax the muscle that pull your lips together to give you a little increase in the fullness of your lips

Bunny lines (lines on the side of your nose from smiling or squinting)

Will I get bruising?

Occasionally there is a tiny amount of bruising, usually in patients on blood thinning medications or taking ibuprofen or aspirin; however, for the most part there is only a tiny amount of bleeding if any and no bruising. People often come in at lunch and return to the office afterwards without anybody ever knowing.

How long does the procedure take?

Usually 15-20 minutes, depending on how many areas you would like treated. ‘

When will I see results?

With Botox approximately 7 days, with Dysport and Xeomin approximately 2-3 days.

How long will it last?

This varies from patient to patient but averages 3-4 months.

How old should I be when I start using Botox?

There is no age limit to when you can start. We treat anybody over 18. Starting younger may allow for prevention of deeper wrinkles. Waiting until you’re older may lead to deep wrinkles that might require dermal fillers.

What happens if I stop using Botox?

Your face will simply return to the way it looked prior to starting treatment.

Become the best version of you. We carefully consider your natural facial structure and proportions then enhance them to give you a more youthful look immediately with our painless dermal filler procedures. We will simply be replacing the volume that your face has lost as a part of the aging process. You will be absolutely amazed at the natural, refreshed look you can achieve with combinations of various dermal fillers. The fillers are made from a natural compound (hyaluronic acid) that is a component of your natural collagen. The fillers will add more collagen to your skin as well as more water to the underlying layers of your skin to make your skin fuller, more supple and smoother than it has been in years. Older clients can see an apparent decrease of 5-7 years in the appearance of their age with a 30 minute treatment. Nerve blocks allow us to perform your procedures in the most painless way possible.

We are the first clinic in Honolulu to offer Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne, the newest members of the Restylane family with a new technology that allows the fillers to move with your natural expressions, giving you the most natural appearance possible. We also carry Restylane Silk, Restylane Lyft, Juvederm Ultra, Juvederm Ultra Plus, and Voluma. Based on our assessment of your natural facial structure and any volume loss you might have, we will recommend a customized combination of fillers in different areas of your face to bring back your natural, youthful beauty.

Dermal Fillers $500-$800 per vial. The range depends on which filler products are used.

Painless Lip Enhancement

Having fillers placed in our lips can be very painful but you will be able to relax and feel nothing with our painless procedure. We will use a nerve block similar to what a dentist performs to make your lips completely numb prior to your enhancement. The keywords are subtlety and enhancement. When we finish, your lips will look natural and beautiful but not done. An enhancement of Cupid’s Bow as well as the addition of a little plumpness to the bodies of your lips is usually all that is necessary. People will notice that your lips look terrific but will not think that you’ve had work done.

The Vampire Facelift

The Vampire Facelift is the beauty secret of Hollywood stars such as Kim Kardashian, Demi Moore and Angelina Jolie. These women know all of the best ways to maintain their beauty. The Vampire Facelift combines PRP (platelet rich plasma from your own blood) with the dermal fillers to create a powerful combination that will give you volume and improve the quality of your skin to an extent that will amaze you.

Decreased Bleeding and Bruising as well as Increased Safety

Feel good knowing that we put your safety first. We are one of the only clinics in Honolulu who regularly utilize blunt tip cannulas for fillers instead of needles. We utilize DermSculpt, patented blunt tip cannulas, to perform your procedures in a manner that causes much less tissue damage, bleeding and bruising. The tips of the cannulas are not sharp like needles so they do not cut blood vessels or nerves making them safer than needles. Nearly all of the complications that have happened in patients with dermal fillers throughout the United States have occurred with the use of needles.

Under Eye Bags

Significantly decrease the appearance of your under eye bags or dark circles. If you are plagued by the appearance of under eye bags or dark circles, they may be due to volume loss or thinning of the skin. Placing fillers in this area with needles can lead to significant complications but is much safer with the use of DermSculpt blunt-tip cannulas that we use in our clinic. If you would like to have these issues addressed, make sure you see a provider who will do it in the safest manner possible. We can use our cannulas to place dermal fillers, PRP (platelet rich plasma) or a combination of the two for amazing results.

Nasolabial Folds (the lines that run from the side of your nose to the corner of your mouth)

These lines often develop from loss of volume in the cheeks. Returning your cheeks to their ideal, natural volume will very often pulls these lines out. If the lines are more established, fillers may need to be placed directly into the area to further decrease the appearance of these lines.

Marionette lines (the lines going from the corners of your mouth down toward your chin)

Replacement of your natural volume at the corners your mouth will not only decrease the appearance of these lines but will also help with downturned lips. You may have noticed that throughout the years, the corners of your mouth have started to sag or turn down in an almost permanent frown. This is usually due to loss of volume at the corners of the mouth as well.

Jowls

The appearance of jowls is often due to volume loss in the bone of your lower jaw. With the proper placement of dermal fillers we can give you a beautiful smooth, youthful jaw line.

Caved in temples

You may have noticed a more hollow look to the upper part of your face if you compare yourself now to younger photographs. We not only lose volume in our cheeks and jaw as we age but in the temples as well which can give us a thinned out, gaunt look. Replacement of the volume in the area of your temples will give you that more rounded look of youth.

FAQ

Where will I need fillers?

The most common place of volume loss in the face is along the cheeks and cheek bones giving patients a hollowed, flattened appearance as they age. Replacing this volume gives you back a more youthful appearance.

How long will it last?

This will vary from person to person as well as from filler to filler. Most will last 6 months to 1 year. Using more filler will increase the amount of time it lasts. Combining the fillers with Botox in the muscles will also increase the life of the filler. Voluma has been shown to last 2 years if a full volume replacement dose is used, generally 1 vial per decade of life (5 vials for a 50 year old patient).

When will I see results?

You will see results immediately but the maximal effect will not be evident until 2 weeks after treatment as the fillers draw more water into the skin.

What are fillers made of?

Most fillers are made of cross-linked hyaluronic acid which a natural component of collagen. Collagen is the substance in your skin that gives skin its elasticity and thickness. Loss of collagen is natural as we age and is the main cause of the difference in appearance between youthful and older skin. Fillers will help stimulate more collagen production and also draw more water into your skin to make it appear fuller as well as more well hydrated. The dermal fillers are derived in a lab and do not come from an animal source.

How long does it take?

This will depend on how much volume loss you have had and how much you would like to replace. Just an enhancement of the lips will only take 10-15 minutes but placing small amounts of fillers throughout the face will take 30-45 minutes.

Will I see bruising or swelling?

Our use of the DermSculpt blunt tip cannulas significantly decreased bruising. You can also decrease your risk of bruising by not taking any ibuprofen type medications, aspirin, fish oil, vitamin E, St. John’s Wort or other blood thinning medications for a week prior to your appointment. There is generally a small out of swelling after fillers that usually resolves after 2 days.

Does it hurt?

Our nerve blocks and blunt tip cannulas will significantly decrease the pain involved and many patients report that they feel no pain at all.

An extremely exciting way of stimulating your skin to increase tightness, smoothness, and elasticity. Rejuvenate your complexion with the natural healing powers of your own body the same way as Hollywood stars such as Kim Kardashian,x, x. The process has been nicknamed the Vampire Facial. Micro needling creates thousands of tiny micropores in your skin that allow hyaluronic acid/vitamins or PRP (platelet rich plasma). Micro needling combined with PRP, also known as the Vampire Facial, has become all the rage in Hollywood for a very good reason. It will give you absolutely amazing results.

We are the only clinic in Hawaii utilizing the MD Pen. The MD Pen is the most powerful micro-needling device on the market operating at 13,500 RPMs allowing it to create many more micropores in a shorter amount of time than other devices used for micro-needling. The MD Pen can be adjusted from 0.1mm to 2.75 mm.

Micro-needling stimulates the dermis in the same way that lasers do. The procedure is extremely safe and has much less downtime than laser facials. It also does not kill the pigment cells in our skin the way that lasers can.

While the numbing gel is setting in, we will draw a small amount of your blood then place it in our centrifuge with a special chemical which will activate the platelets causing them to release their growth factors. We will then draw off all of these concentrated growth factors.

Second, we will perform micro-needling across whatever part of your body that you would like treated. We can treat the skin on the face, neck, decollate or any other part of your body including the backs of hands, stretch marks or scars and even the scalp for hair regrowth. After all of the micropores have been created in your skin, we will apply the growth factors and let them soak through the pores into your dermis to help it heal and grow new collagen.

The combination of the stimulation from the micro needling with the power of your own concentrated cellular growth factors will give you amazing results wherever it is applied.

The Face

With the Vampire Facial we harness your body’s own healing powers and growth factors in a concentrated form to give you incredible anti-aging results.

Age Spots

The Vampire Facial is incredible for bringing life back to sun-damaged skin and decreasing age spots.

The Decollate

Many women suffer from a great deal of sun damage in this area of their upper chest and cleavage, especially in Hawaii. Using the same process we use for the Vampire Facial, we will give your skin in this area a much more youthful appearance so that all of your skin will appear supple and youthful, not just your face.

Stretch Marks

You do not have to be self conscious when wearing a swimming suit or bikini anymore. With micro-needling and PRP we are able to virtually erase stretch marks to give you back your beautiful natural skin. The process stimulates remodeling of the skin in the area to drastically improve the appearance so that you can wear whatever you’d like to the beach. 

Acne Scars

Many people, youth and adults, suffer needlessly from acne scars. If you have acne scars, we have an amazingly effective treatment for you. Micro-needling and PRP will stimulate your skin from the inside out to heal itself and return to its beautiful pre-acne smooth appearance. 

Hair Re-growth

Both men and women may suffer from hair loss that can be incredibly troubling. With micro-needling and PRP, we can stimulate your hair follicles to become active again and help your skin to add new blood vessels to the area to nourish the hair follicles.

FAQ

Do I have to use PRP?

No. Micro-needling alone will stimulate your skin to become tighter, more supple and smoother but PRP will increase the results. We also can apply hyaluronic acid to help stimulate your collagen production if you do not want to use PRP.

How many treatments are necessary to treat stretch marks and acne scars?

This will vary depending on the severity and extent of the stretch marks or scarring but most people will require 5-6 treatments to achieve full effect.

How long will it last?

The rejuvenating effects of a single treatment on skin thickness and smoothness will continue for 3 months with the overall improvement lasting up to 2 years. A series of treatments will give even better results. Some women like to come in every 6 months to a year after their initial treatments for a booster to keep their skin looking its absolute best at all times.

We are very particular about the skin care products we carry and we have the finest, most effective skin care products available. These products are not available in stores and some require a prescription. Your doctor can discuss with you which products would be best for the results your are trying to achieve.

SkinMedica is a complete line of medical grade skin care products with a proven record of achieving amazing results.

Thermavein

We are the very first clinic in Hawaii to offer the quickest, safest, most effective and least painful way to eradicate spider veins from your face. Many people do not know just how easy it is to get rid of facial spider veins so they just live with them or try to cover them up with makeup. Thermavein is a technology developed in Europe that has been used there for years and was only recently FDA approved for use in the United States. Thermavein utilizes radio frequency to eliminate spider veins from your face more effectively and less painfully than both laser and IPL. Thermavein can even be used to treat the spider veins at the base of the nostril. In most patients, only a single treatment is required.

Thermavein works by compressing the tiny veins so the walls of each side are touching then we apply radio frequency for 0.2 seconds to make the walls stick together and eliminate the vein.

Asclera

We can smooth the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between your eyebrows in just ten to twenty minutes. A single Dysport treatment is all it takes to improve the appearance of even severe frown lines, without the overdone “Hollywood look.”

More than half of all patients see improvement in two to three days. Results last for four months, and 97 percent of patients say they would do it again.

For veins on the legs we may use a combination of Thermavein and a chemical solution or sclerosant. The sclerosant is injected into veins up to 3 mm and causes damage to the vessel walls causing them to collapse. Depending on the extent of the vessels, multiple treatments may be required to completely treat leg veins.
