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.
Luxz Esthetics owner Roxanne is one of only seven authorized Intraceuticals skincare professionals in Oahu. In this role, Roxanne administers Intraceuticals's signature treatment, which involves infusing the face with oxygen and painting it with a serum composed of vitamins, aloe vera, green tea, and hyaluronic acid. As implied by its prefix, the Intraceuticals formula seeps deep into pores. As a result, the products stimulate the skin rather than traumatize it with chemicals or gruesome Halloween masks. In addition to the nonchemical peel infusion, Roxanne performs diamond microdermabrasion to remove dead skin cells from the superficial layer. She also administers microcurrent treatments to naturally stimulate cell growth and provide a nonsurgical, nonpuppet-string face lift. Roxanne's private salon-studio specializes in other non-surgical skin care procedures including Microdermabrasion, Intraceuticals Oxygen Infusion Treatment and Atoxelene wrinkle reduction treatment.
The staff at Q Laser Center leads clients on a laser-driven journey toward smoother, less visibly vascular, or tattoo-free skin. The Center prides itself on using safe, FDA-approved, and effective laser treatments, carried out in a clean and comfortable environment, free of stressors such as onrushing asteroids. In addition to laser treatments, the Center's team also helps to rejuvenate the skin with chemical peels, cosmetic injections, and other aesthetic services.
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 Juv?derm, 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.
While she worked as a massage therapist in physical-therapy clinics and hotel spas, Nikki Sanchez still found time to beautify clients on the side. She earned her aesthetician's license, planned weekly "Beauty Bars," and eventually built a loyal customer base at a rising salon before opening her own lash and wax boutique. At Lash Love, she personalizes each set of silk and mink lash extensions to the eye shape and winking style of each client. By fashioning fibers of different lengths, curls, and thicknesses, she amps up gazes with natural or glam-style looks that require minimal upkeep and no mascara. Her waterproof extensions also permit patrons to swim and give congratulatory butterfly kisses to their reflections after each lap. In addition to augmenting lids, Nikki eliminates unwanted hair with soft or hard wax and refreshes mugs with the vitamin-rich fruit and vegetable ingredients of Skinfood express facials.
