The inch-loss system offered at Redox Beauty Bar works to tone buns, thighs, and waists by simulating a physical workout using microcurrent technology developed by the coinventor of the pacemaker. It helps people slim down without the strain of vigorous exercise routines, the risk of surgery, or the tongue burns of an all-grapefruit diet. Treatments are administered in a private room and can deliver the same results as a good workout.
When it comes to pain relief, a one-size-fits-all approach is rarely the answer. That’s why Portner Orthopedic Rehabilitation’s team isn’t populated by professionals versed in a single field or specialty. Instead, the roster consists of medical doctors, non-surgical orthopedic doctors, a chiropractor, physical therapists, an acupuncturist, and rehabilitative massage therapists who help treat such conditions as whiplash, carpal-tunnel syndrome, and sports injuries. Their diagnostic services mix old-fashioned physical examinations with electromyography and ultrasound testing. After determining the underlying cause of discomfort, doctors might ease inflammation in the joints, alleviate muscle spasms, and reduce swelling with injection therapy. They also perform chiropractic services that realign the spine to remove discomfort and aid in healing. When conditions call for extra relief, the doctors call in colleagues including physical therapists, licensed massage therapists, and an acupuncturist. They set to work dissipating deep-seated problems with their specialized treatments, whether they’re applying pressure to problem areas and kneading out knotted tissue or unblocking energy pathways and promoting inner healing through the strategic insertion of tiny needles.
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 eponymous Connie Gayle performs every treatment at Connie Gayle Beauty Center, leaning on her 25 years of industry experience to customize each facial, nail, waxing, and hair treatment to the needs of her clientele. A registered nurse and cosmetologist, Connie’s studies in Europe and the United States went into engineering a proprietary line of skincare products, many of which contain natural botanicals sourced from island ingredients. Blends of papaya, seaweed, and cucumber extracts team up with modern resources, such as elastin and pineapples harvested by robots, to buoy skin color, texture, and tone.
Traditional Chinese medicine and Western beauty practices join forces at Advanced Medi-Spa Hawaii. Practitioner Cindy Chang draws on her experience as a licensed acupuncturist and cosmetologist to deliver face-lifts—which rely on fine needles instead of scalpels—and skin-clearing treatments that use intense pulsed light and herbs. A few zaps from a cold laser help erase age spots, freckles, and birthmarks, and the radio-frequency energy emitted by the Lamprobe machine banishes skin tags, clogged pores, and the other blemishes caused by not living in a car wash.
For more than a quarter of a century, the family behind Mimo Beauty Wear has helped men and women to achieve their beauty goals with a blend of technology and industry experience. Owner and artist Janet and stylist and IPL specialist Jeannie tend to the skin of their clients with Valmont skincare products, which help to fight wrinkles, dehydration, and the supervillain hidden in your nose. Although the team specializes in skincare and treating acne and unwelcome pigmentation, their roster of services extends beyond the face to include hair, waxing, eyelash extensions, and permanent makeup.
