Treatment for Neck Wrinkles

It's true, your neck reveals your real age. While most women spend on skincare products or treatments to reclaim youth, the neck or decolletage area are often neglected, predisposing one to the dreaded turkey neck. With the advancement in technology, there are treatment options to revitalize the neck area, in particular radiofrequency, a clinically-proven procedure which triggers collagen and elastin formation. With repeated series, patient will  see tightening and a more rejuvenated look. See Dr. Reed and Aesthetic Nurse Specialist Marie as they demonstrate Pelleve in one of the episodes of Livin Hawaii TV.

Intense Pulse Light Hair Removal for Underarm

Have you been shaving or waxing your underarm? Have you thought of getting your hairs reduced and eventually removed permanently? Dr. Reed and Aesthetic Nurse Specialist showed IPL (intense pulse light) procedure last Tuesday night on Livin'Hawaii at KFVE (channel 5). IPL works by destroying hair follicles. It targets the pigment of hair follicles so the darker your hair, the better outcome. If you haven't done a procedure like this before, you will start with 3-4 treatments, spaced out 30 days apart with very few maintenance thereafter depending on the thickness of your hair. You will notice that in time, the hair growth is slower and much thinner. To schedule your appointment, please book online or call (808) 674-4300

Botox On The Bunny Lines

Did you catch Dr. Graeme Reed and Aesthetic Nurse Specialist Marie at the premiere episode of Livin' Hawaii last Tuesday May 2nd? Hosted by Ms. Hawaii 2013 Crystal Montrone, the segment showed Dr. Reed injecting few units of Botox on the bunny lines. Bunny lines are expression lines so if you crinkle up your nose by habit, wrinkles can eventually develop. Botox is a neuromodulator that can help with bunny lines, along with other areas such as forehead, in between the brows or around the eyes. Here are some behind the scene photos from the first episode. We will be on Livin' Hawaii in the entire season 2, every Tuesday nights, 7 pm at KFVE.

Ablative versus Non-ablative Laser Skin Resurfacing

laser skin resurfacing, ablative versus non-ablative laser

Laser technology for skin resurfacing has come a long way. Performed correctly under experienced hands, it is the best beauty investment you can ever have. There are two types of laser: ablative and non-ablative. It is not a question whether which one is better because it all depends on the patient's expected or realistic outcome alongside the nature of the problem: acne scars, surgical scars, wrinkles, stretch marks, sun damage, among others. Oftentimes laser is combined with other procedures depending on the severity of skin issues. 

Ablative (CO2, Erbium) vaporize the top layer of the skin which triggers the skin to restructure and produce collagen. It is the gold standard in skin resurfacing and does a fantastic job even with one treatment but because it is more invasive, there is significant social downtime involved (several weeks to months), it's the storm before the calm.

Non-ablative (fractional) delivers heat to the dermis without affecting the top layer. This action also stimulates collagen and elastin restructuring. Because it is less aggressive, more treatments are needed to achieve desired goal. 

The cost of laser skin resurfacing depends on the area being treated and the number of treatments required. The energy setting is programmed to your skin type (lightest to darkest using Fitzpatrick skin typing). In general, only a doctor, registered nurse, physian assistant ot nurse practitioner can operate laser. 

Get Gorgeous Skin With Vitalize Peel

Chemical peels performed at a doctor's clinic is one of the several ways that can help address dull complexion, flaky skin, acne, acne scars, sun spots, dark spots and mild to moderate wrinkles. Done correctly, it can make your skin look better and your skincare products work better. Reason being, the combination of acids slough off dead skin cells and trigger your body to move the new cells up and multiply revealing smoother skin in time. Your skincare products will work better because there are no dead skin cells that affect their potency and efficacy. As there is no overnight solution to everything, getting chemical peel in series (minimum of 3 to start with) and annual maintenance is a good way to keep your skin looking gorgeous. Here are some pre and post-treatment instructions to help you with:

  1. Schedule your chemical peel appointment at least 2 weeks prior to a special event you are planning to attend. Depending on how your skin will react, peeling starts 48-72 hours after the treatment and can last anywhere between 2 to 5 days.

  6. If you are a new patient, come to your appointment 15 minutes prior to allow time for filling out intake and consent forms.

  1. Depending on how your skin will react, peeling starts 48-72 hours after the treatment. During this time, your face may feel tight and look red and in certain occasions, yellow to orange due to the peel applied. This tinge will resolve in a few hours, it is strongly advised not to wash your face for about six hours so as not to affect the efficacy of the peel.
  2. Depending on how your skin will react, peeling may last may last anywhere between 2 to 5 days. Do not attempt to remove, peel, pick or scratch the treated skin to prevent scarring.

  5. Wait for 3 days before restarting retinol or any other topical medications.
  6. Always use sunscreen with at least SPF 30. Reapply every 2 or 3 hours especially if you are staying out longer.
  7. Refrain from getting any kind of facial treatment or procedure at least one week after your chemical peel.
  8. Although isolated but in case you develop cold sore, return to our clinic so Dr. Reed can prescribe you with medication.

New Aesthetic Treatments at Ali'i Nani: Pollogen Tripollar Skin Tightening, Voluderm RF Microneedling, Oxygeneo Advanced Microdermabrasion Oxygen Facial

Ali'i Nani is excited to be the first in Oahu to bring the following aesthetic treatments to Kapolei and surrounding areas!

OXYGENEO Advanced Microdermabrasion Oxygen Facial utilizes a 3-in-1 technology that exfoliates, infuses and oxygenates the skin, revealing soft and visibly radiant skin right away.

Oxygeneo Technology is an innovative, medical-grade skin renewing facial that delivers three essential treatments to the skin simultaneously: exfoliation of the outer layer of the skin, infusion of revitalizing nutrients, and oxygenation of the skin generated from within. It is specifically designed to work with nutrient-rich formulas for radiant and glowing skin.

Unlike traditional microdermabrasion which can be harsh to the skin because it's done dry and utilizes a vaccum suction which makes skin appear red after the treatment, Oxygeneo gently exfoliate and massage the face using a combination of nutrient-rich gel which makes the experience truly relaxing. This technology allows the skin to look radiant, fresher and brighter right away. For troubled skin such as acne, sun spots or pigmentation, consider getting series of treatment to achieve optimal results. The good thing about this facial is that there is no downtime so if you have an upcoming event and you want to look radiant, you can do it on the day or at least two days before the event.

Ali'i Nani is also the first in Oahu to bring Pollogen Tripollar treatment, the world's most advanced RF (radiofrequency) technology which is clinically proven to help with wrinkle reduction, firmed and rejuvenated skin, facial contouring and skin tightening. It works by heating the fibroblasts of the skin which then pulls the collagen strands closer for immediate skin tightening. This action stimulates the body's natural collagen renewal resulting to firmer and more supple skin no matter what age you are. It can be used on the face, neck, upper and lower body. The procedure feels like a warm massage. It is pleasant and pain-free and depending on the area of treatment, you spend an average of 30 minutes in the clinic. A minimum of six sessions to achieve optimal results.

For acne scars, wrinkles and skin resurfacing, Ali'i Nani also offers Pollogen Voluderm, a cutting-edge technology that uses fine micro-pins and radiofrequency that trigger your body's own natural healing mechanism. This procesure stimulates the body to produce hyaluronic acid, collagen and elastin. Voluderm treatments result in long-term wrinkle reduction, skin resurfacing and facial lifting leaving your skin tighter, firmer and refreshed. The treatment itself is painless but some patients may experience very mild pricks. Depending on your skin type, your skin may look red for few hours to a day but in general, there is no dowtime involved.A minimum of five sessions to achieve optimal results.
