Aesthetics Hawaii is pleased to introduce Restylane Refyne® and Defyne® in Honolulu

Posted on 04/28/17 in Uncategorized, No Comments

Aesthetics Hawaii and Dr Yew are pleased to add Restylane Refyne and Defyne to the portfolio of artistic fillers for volume rejuvenation. Refyne and Defyne are the only fillers on the market that have been shown in clinical trials to help maintain natural movement and expressions while minimizing wrinkles.

Refyne and Defyne are specifically formulated hyaluronic acid dermal fillers made with XpresHAn Technology™ that helps correct these lines for a more natural look to your face. The unique cross-linking of the gel in Refyne and Defyne are also designed to help support your natural expression—for real-life results that help maintain natural movement when you’re smiling and frowning Results are commonly seen to last 6-12 months. Call now to schedule a free consultation to see if Refyne and Defyne are right for you!

Aesthetics Hawaii is the first practice to use Volbella® in Honolulu

Posted on 11/04/16 in Uncategorized, No Comments

Aesthetics Hawaii and Dr Yew are proud to be the first practice in Honolulu to use Volbella. Volbella is the latest dermal filler treatment for the lips and fine lines around the mouth. Designed not only for gentle restoration of natural looking lip volume, it can also be used for defining lip contours, softening “smoker’s lines” and preventing the downturning of the marionette lines (oral commissures).

Developed using Allergan’s proprietary Vycross technology, JUVÉDERM® VOLBELLA® with lidocaine is formulated with cross-linking which allows for a lower concentration of HA to be used, which results in less swelling and a natural look and feel. This unique technology allows the product to absorb less water, resulting in considerably reduced swelling compared to more traditional fillers. Results are commonly seen to last 6-12 months.

Dr. David Yew and Aesthetics Hawaii are the recognized experts in contouring the jawline with non-surgical injectable treatments. Patients with a wide lower jawline can now look and feel slimmer by having the submental fat (“double chin”) dissolved permanently with Kybella and have the masseter muscles shrink in size with botox. Patients with a “square” or “U” shaped face can now return to the “V” shaped appearance of their youth. In addition to the cosmetic enhancement, patients with bruxism (teeth grinding) and TMJ syndrome have all reported significant improvement thus adding a functional benefit to their health. The treatment is very effective and results last up to 6 months.

Aesthetics Hawaii specializing in Kybella™ (non-surgical fat dissolving under the chin)

Kybella Woman Picture

Aesthetics Hawaii is one of the first practices in Honolulu to use Kybella™. Kybella is an FDA approved injectable treatment for submental fullness (double chin) that can significantly improve chin contouring without the invasiveness and downtime of surgical options. Kybella was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in May 2015 for the reduction of submental fat.

Kybella is a synthetic formulation of deoxycholic acid, which is naturally produced by our body and used to break down and absorb dietary fat. When properly injected in the chin area, it has been shown to dissolve submental fat (which causes double chin) and result in significant cosmetic improvement by creating a more streamlined contour along the jawline.
