Following the lead of medical director Choon Kia Yeo, who boasts 30 years of medical experience, the team at Honolulu MedSpa strives to make clients feel happier, healthier, and more youthful without spending too much time or money. They customize treatment programs to meet each individual's needs and budget, and they offer free consultations to any patients who are still trying to determine their beauty paths.
Despite being a board-certified surgeon, Choon Kia Yeo promotes many noninvasive skin therapies at his practice, including virtually painless laser hair removal and skin-rejuvenation facials that employ laser light, oxygen infusions, and chemical peels. To contour bodies, he and his team use a Venus Freeze skin-tightening system that reduces the appearance of cellulite without breaking the skin. The medspa is also the only certified CoolSculpting practice in the state; there, highly trained technicians target especially stubborn bulges from the outside with the help of noninvasive fat-reduction panels. They also administer injections of Botox and Juvéderm, which help to fill in lines and creases on the face.
In order to make beauty maintenance as accessible to all as possible, Honolulu MedSpa offers evening and Saturday appointments, patient rewards, financing options, a military discount, and monthly promotions.
Each Body By Laser clinic pairs cold-laser technology with holistic health practices to help patients lose inches and keep them off. The treatment gets its magic from cold lipolasers, which are designed to gently shrink fat cells by dislodging their contents so that they can be fully discarded through the body's natural metabolic process and series of tiny secondhand stores. Each one-hour treatment series wraps up with a consultation on diet and exercise, along with a quick session atop a whole-body-vibration platform engineered to burn even more calories.
Like art-house films and fish-flavored popsicles, these procedures are not intended for everyone; females who are pregnant or nursing should not undertake the treatment, nor should patients with active forms of cancer. Should any complications be discovered during Body By Laser's initial screening, the company will issue a refund.
The technicians at Hawaii Fat Loss endorse exercising as much as anyone, but they've noticed it has one major drawback: it takes a long time. That's why they help expedite the fat-burning process with noninvasive laser-like lipo treatments that use infrared energy. The infrared energy simulates the effects of exercising by opening up fat cells at the hips, thighs, buttocks, and mid sections. This causes them to release their fatty acids, water, and glycerol into the body and shrink, resulting in lost inches.
In medical school, Dr. Carolyn Mai's mentors wanted her to become a surgeon. They noticed her uncanny attention to detail and that she possessed the steady, certain hands and a keen eye—skills which she now uses to administer noninvasive treatments that correct blemishes and signs of aging.
In Dr. Mai's office, patients don’t bounce from specialist to specialist, nor does the doc bounce from patient to patient. She keeps every appointment one-on-one, delivering close, personal attention that not only maintains the continuity of treatments, but also helps put patients at ease. Dr. Mai sees herself as being an approachable doctor who seeks to see her patients feeling more confident on their way out of the office than they did upon entering.
In keeping with this down-to-earth caregiving philosophy, Dr. Mai designed her office to feel light and airy with light blue walls that wrap around white, contemporary furniture. Large leafy plants overlook patients sipping tea and coffee, creating a relaxing atmosphere.
