New advances in laser technology have significantly improved the effectiveness of noninvasive and non-surgical procedures to help improve the texture, tone, tightness and appearance of the skin. Cosmetic physicians continue to search for innovative ways to correct aging and sun damaged skin. With time, our skin deteriorates with enlarged pores, fine lines, wrinkles, and often with acne scarring, all of which contribute to a skin texture that is rough, uneven and not smooth.

In the past, ablative (CO2 Laser Resurfacing) was used to resurface the skin. These lasers had serious drawbacks, complications and very long recovery times. Now, doctors have access to a new laser device called PIXEL. PIXEL provides textural and skin improvement for patients with acne scarring, hyperpigmentation as well as scarring on other parts of the body. The procedure, “Fractional Laser Resurfacing” creates thousands of tiny micro-perforations in the skin similar to the size of pores. The skin around each of the perforations remain intact and rapidly heal from within and from around the edges of these tiny holes to create “new skin”. The treatment is a safe and effective with little or no downtime.


A patient who undergoes a PIXEL treatment will generally be red for one to two days. Anesthetic is not required for the procedure and mineral make-up can be applied immediately following the treatment. There is virtually no downtime or no messy blue creams to apply during the treatment. Patients can return to their daily routines immediately. PIXEL can be done almost anywhere on the body where skin texture needs improvement. Here at MedicalSpa & SkinCare Hawaii in the Ala Moana Building, we use the PIXEL laser for skin fractional resurfacing to achieve a smoother, glowing, and healthier skin with excellent results.

Today’s well informed consumer has various options for non-invasive procedures which help them maintain a beautiful natural look without having to undergo major surgery. Let’s call it “graceful aging”. As our skin ages, it thins with capillaries, veins and brown spots, becoming more visible. These can be readily treated with the Alma AFT - Advanced Florescent Technology, a third generation IPL. If you would like improvement in your skin’s texture, then fractional resurfacing with the PIXEL is an excellent option for you.


For deep dynamic wrinkles and deep grooves in the skin, we offer Botox and dermal fillers such as Restylane, Radiesse, Juvederm, and Perlane which can create the youthful and rejuvenated appearance you’ve always wanted. If you desire to improve skin that is sagging and drooping, we have the remarkable Alma Skin Tightening laser treatment.
