Relaxers

This simple, nonsurgical treatment can temporarily smooth moderate to severe lines.  The entire procedure takes approximately 10 minutes and there is no downtime.  Discomfort is minimal and brief. Results start appearing 2-5 days after the treatment and last 3-4 months.

Expert Injector

The most important aspect of using these different products, is not which one you choose, but making sure that you are being injected by a reputable and respected provider, who does a lot of these injections.

Dr. Scheel is a Board Certified Dermatologist and has been using these relaxers for over 15 years. A knowledgeable injector will soften lines and features with the goal of relaxing lines instead of “freezing” the face. We use numbing cream to minimize discomfort and offer a free follow up visit / touch-up to make sure everything is perfect for you!

Botox (manufactured by Allergan), and Dysport (manufactured by Galderma) are “Relaxers.” Each brand has a slightly different recipe of the same substance, Botulinum toxin A, but they all work the same way. Both products can help reduce or eliminate wrinkles and fine lines caused by repeated muscle contraction. The most important aspect of using these different products, is not which one you choose, but making sure that you are being injected by a reputable and respected provider. Dr. Scheel and her PAs have years of training and experience in relaxer injections.

At Dr. Monica Scheel Dermatology, the most commonly treated areas include the crow’s feet around the eyes, frown lines on the forehead, “11’s” between the eyebrows, vertical lip lines, “bunny lines” on the nose, downturning of the mouth corners, chin wrinkles and the platysmal bands – bands on the neck that stand out when you talk and pull down the lower face. Botulinum toxin A is also highly effective in treating excessive underarm sweating, or hyperhidrosis.

We believe in a natural look and don’t “overdo it” with our patients. With regular upkeep and visits to our injection specialists. you will find you look rejuvenated, more youthful, refreshed, and relaxed.

While many people in their 40’s, 50’s, and 60’s come in to treat the lines that have already developed, there has been a movement of younger people seeking treatment to prevent lines and wrinkles from ever happening in the first place. Men also benefit from relaxer to help look refreshed and relaxed.

Make an appointment for a consultation today and see if Relaxers are right for you.

Sculptra can also help improved thin and crepey skin and shallow smile lines. It works gradually by stimulating collagen, producing a more refined natural looking appearance that can last up to two years.

Voluma

As we age, our face loses volume causing our cheeks to flatten and skin to sag. This volume loss starts in our 20s and becomes more noticeable as we age. Juvederm Voluma XC temporarily adds volume and reverses these signs of aging and our office is the most experienced Voluma injector in Hawaii.

Juvederm Voluma XC is the first FDA-approved injectable gel that instantly adds natural-looking volume to your cheek area.  It can provide contour and a subtle lift for up to two years!

Voluma Platinum1During your visit we will discuss your goals, examine your skin and determine the amount to inject. Voluma is unique in that it contains anesthetic lidocaine to reduce pain at the injection site. Most patients require a touch-up treatment approximately one month after the initial treatment.

After treatment, most clinical study patients rated themselves as looking an average of 5 years younger within six months of their treatment.  They also reported an improvement in overall satisfaction with their facial appearance two years after their last treatment.

Kybella

Kybella is the only FDA-approved nonsurgical treatment that contours and improves the appearance of a double chin (submental fullness) and jawline.  Double chins are common aesthetic conditions which can affect many adults.  It may develop naturally as you age, be a part of your genetics or be a result of weight gain. Some people can not reduce this fatty deposit on their own no matter how much they diet or exercise, resulting in a feature that can make them look older or heavier than they actually are.

Kybella is a non-surgical quick treatment that is customized to fit your goals.  Kybella is a naturally-occurring molecule already present in your body (deoxycholic acid) that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.  When injected into the fat beneath your chin, Kybella causes the destruction of fat cells. Once destroyed, these cells cannot store or accumulate fat

Most patients respond to just two or three treatments with no further injections necessary. They report more confidence and satisfaction with the appearance of their face and chin. Once the chin profile is improved, the patient will not need to be treated with Kybella again.

From Our Patients

From the minute you walk through the doors, the experience starts! I love everything about this office. From the staff, the products, and the many different procedures they offer. I have had everything from Botox , chemical peels and basal cell skin cancer removals. Regardless of the treatment or procedure the staff is extremely qualified and there to help you every step of the way.

I came to Dr. Scheel’s office with a lot of sun damage accumulated over the years having lived in sunny climates most of my life. After just one IPL session, almost all the brown spots on my face disappeared. I was so happy with the results that I dared to try something I didn’t think I’d ever do … botox & fillers. Bye bye wrinkles on the forehead and around the eyes, hello plumper lips! I’m totally sold on these treatments and highly recommend Dr. Scheel and her staff if you have any skin-related concerns, cosmetic or medical. In fact, next time I’m going in for a skin exam because one of the PAs who gave me a peel recently noticed some spots on my arm that might be of concern. I love that they are not only focused on the cosmetic side of things but also on the lookout for medical issues that I may not have noticed. That’s genuine care of their patients!
