Injectables and Fillers
When you smile, laugh, frown, or look puzzled, you contract the muscles of your face. Over time, these contractions produce permanent furrows and deep wrinkles in the skin, especially around the eyes and mouth, between the eyebrows, and on the forehead. These lines can make you look older, sad, angry or tired. Soft tissue fillers can not only prevent you from deepening these lines during natural facial movements, they can also erase these marks of aging, leaving you looking younger and refreshed.
Soft tissue fillers are FDA-approved and safe for use by most patients. Many of the fillers are made from substances found naturally in the body, or synthetically made to mimic natural substances or stimulate collagen production. These fillers are injected directly into the skin of the targeted area to restore volume and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. At Kapolei Eye Care, we offer patients several different soft tissue filler options in order to provide the best possible results for their individual needs, including:
- BOTOX® Cosmetic
Latisse is the first and only FDA-approved treatment for hypotrichosis, or inadequate eyelash growth. Latisse is a breakthrough treatment that enhances eyelashes by increasing their length, thickness and darkness through a daily treatment applied to the base of the upper lashes. Most patients notice significant results from Latisse after just four weeks of continuous use, with full results visible after 16 weeks.
As we age, the rate at which our skin sheds and replenishes itself slows down. This leaves a layer of dead cells on the surface of the skin, contributing to an aged appearance. Facials help exfoliate the damaged layer to reveal the younger, healthier skin beneath. Some of the ingredients used can be natural fruits and plant extracts, essential oils, vitamins, collagen and elastin. Facials reduce the signs of aging and can also improve skin conditions such as acne, dry or oily skin, and uneven texture or pigmentation. Facials are individually tailored to each patient for optimal results. Kapolei Eye Care now offers the following facial:

Forever Young BBL
The Forever Young BBL by Sciton is an incredible, noninvasive advance in skin rejuvenation treatment. This is the only device that has been shown to actually slow the aging process within the genes. Regular sessions of the Forever Young BBL—customized to achieve your specific needs—can leave patients with smoother, clearer and more youthful looking skin.
Safe and effective for all parts of the body, the Forever Young BBL uses broadband light (BBL) on the highly visible skin of the face, neck, chest, arms and hands. It stimulates collagen and revitalizes the skin’s elasticity in order to reduce lines and wrinkles, fade freckles and age spots, improve rosacea and spider veins and diminish acne. This advanced system involves dual-lamp technology that delivers pulses of light energy to the targeted area of skin, while keeping the skin cool and preventing damage to nearby tissue.
Treatment sessions are fast and easy, typically taking 12 to 15 minutes for a full face procedure. There is no downtime associated with Forever Young, either, so patients can return to all of their normal activities immediately afterward. The results of this procedure will gradually become noticeable over the course of three months. When performed on a regular basis, Forever Young treatment results are highly effective and long lasting.
As technology advances, more and more patients are seeking laser procedures to eliminate the unwanted effects of aging, sun damage and acne scarring on the skin, as well as a permanent solution for hair removal. Laser treatments are safe, effective procedures that require little to no downtime and allow patients to easily achieve their desired results.
Laser treatments use focused beams of light to heat and destroy old, damaged skin cells while stimulating the growth of new cells and collagen. This leaves the skin looking, younger, fuller and more refreshed. While the results of these procedures are not usually permanent and the signs of aging and sun damage will once again affect the skin, laser treatments do keep the skin looking younger than it would have without any treatment at all.
Dr. Chen provides a wide range of laser treatments to improve the overall look and feel of the skin. The type of procedure performed and the laser used for your treatment depends on your individual goals. We have many treatments available that can be customized for your individual skin, including:
- Laser Hair Reduction
- Spider Vein Removal
- Age Spot Treatment
- Acne Treatment
- Cellulite Reduction

Laser Hair Removal with ClearScan
The ClearScan YAG laser from Sciton offers a range of wavelengths and energy pulse durations in order to provide tailor-made treatments for a number of skin conditions. It is safe for use on all skin types, even for those with darker or tanned skin.
The ClearScan YAG is an effective treatment method for permanent hair removal. The laser energy of the ClearScan YAG selectively targets the melanin present in hair follicles beneath the skin’s surface and converts to heat, destroying the follicles and preventing hair growth for long-term results. This convenient procedure can successfully remove unwanted body hair and eliminate the need for shaving, waxing and other temporary solutions.
Vascular lesions such as spider veins and varicose veins can also be treated with the ClearScan YAG laser. It safely, thoroughly reduces visible blood vessels, broken capillaries, spider veins, vascular lesions and related skin discoloration. The laser energy is precisely directed to the problem area, gently eliminating the vascular structure from the skin’s surface. This reduces the visibility of vascular abnormalities and restores a smooth, clear appearance to the legs, face or other affected areas.
After a treatment session, patients can immediately return to work and other activities. The number of sessions needed varies depending on the type and extent of the condition being treated. Patients can benefit from immediate results that will continue to improve over the course of treatment.
