A solution for Cellulite at our medical spa
If you are plagued with unsightly cellulite, Thermage can often help to smooth skin dimpling and improve your appearance.
While there is no procedure that completely gets rid of cellulite, Thermage has brought excellent results for many patients, smoothing the dimpling effects of cellulite on the body and tightening loose skin.
Thermage is a procedure that uses radiofrequency to subtly but effectively tighten the skin. It takes 2-6 months to see results, and the treatment can be repeated after 6 months to maintain the skin tightening already achieved or to achieve more tightening. For big savings, read about our Thermage Days.
3 popular medical spa treatments
Our medical spa offers a number of treatments that help increase your self-confidence and enhance your appearance. These are three of our most popular non-surgical procedures.
Laser hair removal - Typically we prefer patients to come for a complementary consultation prior to scheduling their first laser hair removal treatment, but more and more patients are asking for an online consultation and making their first appointment treatment number one. Our state-of-the-art lasers and extensive experience can safely remove hair from all skin types and colors. Our medical spa offers many laser hair removal packages.
Tattoo removal – Since tattoos were designed to be permanent, a skilled practitioner and the latest laser technology ensures the best results. The tattoo removal procedure has come a long way, making it much easier to have good results. Our Alex TriVantage laser has the ability to fade your tattoo so that it will be barely noticeable. There’s no need to live with tattoos that you no longer want. Schedule a free tattoo removal consultation at any one of our three locations.
Fillers and wrinkle relaxers – Both non-surgical rejuvenation procedures can improve your appearance and help maintain a more youthful appearance. They reduce lines, wrinkles and folds. They include Botox Cosmetic, Dysport, Restylane, Radiesse, Perlane, Artefil, and Juvéderm and may be combined with other treatments at our medical spa for longer-lasting and more effective results. Choose from several of our popular cosmetic rejuvenation packages.
3 facial treatment options for long-term results
Receive the relaxing experience of a day spa facial, with true medical supervision of Dr. John Stover and Cosmetic Centers of Hawaii. We have several treatments that are customized specifically for you using the most advanced products and protocols available. Our friendly and knowledgeable clinical staff can help you develop a customized program that works for you to obtain the results you are looking for!
Dermasound Facial - Perfect for all skin types including patients with sensitive skin. This treatment includes all the components of a regular facial combining the use of low frequency sound waves and water to exfoliate, nourish and heal the skin. After exfoliating through a process called 'cavitation', nourishing antioxidants are applied to the skin and allowed to penetrate deeper, a process called 'sonophoresis'. The Dermasound facial treatment is completed with 'microamp' therapy to heal the skin.
Microdermabrasion – Microdermabrasion is a gentle, non-invasive, non-surgical procedure that can help you achieve remarkable improvements. This treatment includes all the components of a regular facial plus the added benefits of deeper exfoliation provided by microdermabrasion. Microdermabrasion can address skin problems such as early signs of aging, uneven skin tone, fine lines, mild acne, enlarged pores and even light scarring with no discomfort or downtime.
Chemical Peels - As skin ages, the natural exfoliation process tends to slow down. This leads to "dull-looking" skin. Assisting this exfoliation process is beneficial to achieving and/or maintaining clear, youthful looking skin. This can be done either through mechanical exfoliation, such as microdermabrasion, or chemical exfoliation, through chemical peels. Our medical spa offers a variety of light, medium, and deep peels, to meet your specific needs. During a chemical peel, a chemical solution is used to improve the texture of the skin by removing its outer damaged layers. Chemical peels are ideal for those wanting to improve wrinkles, uneven pigmentation, facial blemishes, acne, actinic keratosis and large pores. Find out more about chemical peel treatments.

Dr. Stover: How to restore a natural look to thinning lips
How do you plump thinning lips without having it look unnatural or overdone? This is one of the most common questions asked of Dr. Stover, and he recently provided expert advice on the best way to plump thinning lips.
The trick, Dr. Stover says, is to use soft tissue fillers that contain hyaluronic acid. “Fillers like Restylane, Perlane and Juvederm are totally natural, reasonably priced, easy to inject and extremely effective,” says Dr. Stover. "Most people lose the detailed contour and shape of the upper lip as they age. When I fill the lips, I like to focus on recreating the cupids bow first, defining the small vertical lines between the nose and the mouth, and add a central pout to the middle of the red part of the lip. Then I slightly bulk the lateral part of the upper lip. I fill the central portion of the lower lip next in balance with the upper lip. Last I add filler to the lateral part of the lower lip to gently lift the corners of the mouth up.”
Read the entire article about improving the look of your lips.
Why is everyone talking about Dysport?
