【Application
Areas】

Mechanism of stimulating collagen and elastin formation

The threads are placed in the skin. This activates a natural wound-healing effect that stimulates the growth of collagen and elastin surrounding them, forming a “collagen tunnel” within. The threads are biodegradable, dissolving completely in 8-18 months. The collagen continues to increase even after the threads have dissolved, ensuring a long-lasting effect.

Treatment Process

1. Counseling
Our doctor will assess your symptoms and provide consultation regarding the most appropriate procedure. Please feel free to ask questions regarding anything you are unsure of or may be concerned about..
2. Marking and Anesthesia
The areas for treatment are decided and marked. A local anesthesia is applied.
3. Procedure
The actual procedure lasts approximately 30 minutes.

Facelift

For those who are concerned about the treatment of saggy skin...

There are various types of treatment for saggy skin, and sometimes it may be difficult to determine the most appropriate for your condition. Our doctor will suggest the best treatment method and treatment plan for you.

Result-oriented Rejuvenation Procedures

Facelift surgery is the procedure to address hanging general facial skin, neck and around the eyes. It is the most effective, and long-lasting rejuvenation procedure. Results commonly achieve a look of five to ten years younger, halting the aging process and turning back the clock. Since the stitches are within the hairline, the scar is not pronounced.

Latest Overall Lift Method Works deep Within the Skin

The types of facelift vary according to the tissue layers treated, and are divided as follows:
(1) Skin-only lift
(2) Subperiosteal lift
(3) SMAS lift
Our clinic offers the SMAS facelift, which is a minimal invasive procedure and the most effective. To resolve sagging skin on the cheeks and neck, the procedure lifts not only the skin, but also the subcutaneous layer which is necessary. This is why we recommend the SMAS lift.

Enjoy the Synergistic Effects of Cosmetic Surgery and Dermatology Procedures
After lifting the face line via facelift, why not add a Thermacool, Doublo or Titan treatment as a combination follow-up procedure. Gain the synergistic effects that help attain more beautiful skin and stronger lifting, thus giving more effective, long-lasting results.

Eye-area

Non-Invasive Treatment Options for the Nose

Removal of Baggy Look in Lower Eyelids

Entire face looks younger instantly

Natural aging processes result in saggy skin and fat descends under the eyes, creating dark circles and bagginess. This treatment removes excess fat from underneath the eyes, helping to eliminate those puffy bags and restore a youthful appearance.

Cause

【1】Influence of gravity
The eyeball moves downward due to aging and gravitational pull, which adds pressure to the orbital fat.
【2】Weakening of ligament
The muscle tone of ligament deteriorates with aging, losing support for the eyeball and allowing the orbital fat to bulge and cause bags to form under the eyes.

Transconjunctival Blepharoplasty

Orbital fat is removed from inside the lower eyelids with no scarring. No suturing and no stitch removal!

Benefits of Transconjunctival Blepharoplasty

・No external scarring
・Small incision and suturing. Suture removal not required.

Transcutaneous Blepharoplasty – External incision method

An incision is made in the skin of the lower eyelids to remove excess fat and tissue. The incision is then closed using sutures. Azabu Skin Clinic offering the latest techniques to match your various needs and requests.

Harma Incision Method Features and Procedure
An incision is made below the eyelash line to remove the excess fat. The orbital septum and fat are repositioned to fill the hollow the under eye, firming up the septum (at the periosteum). Next, the orbicularis oculi muscle is firmed at the zygomatic periosteum, tightening the lower eyelids. Excess skin is removed and the incision is closed using sutures.

Removal of Baggy Look in Upper Eyelids

For attractive younger-looking eyes!

To achieve a natural look, an incision is made in the optimal area and the optimal amount of tissue is removed. Our experienced surgeon will choose the best procedure for the best outcome.

Upper Eyelid Surgery Menu, Procedure and Differences in Effectiveness

We recommend the best treatment customized for each individual’s particular needs. Please feel free to request a consultation with us.

Remove Puffy Upper Eyelids
The incision line is made in the natural crease of the eyelids to minimize scarring.
Double-eyelid Full Incision Method
An incision is made along the crease in the upper eyelid and excess skin and fat deposits are removed. Good for patients who have droopy, heavy upper eyelids.
Incision Below Eyebrow Method
An incision is made just under the eyebrow. The excessive skin and fat causing the saggy upper eyelid are removed. A double-eyelid is not created with this procedure, which is specially recommended for maintaining the single eyelid shape.
Double-eyelid Cover-up Method
The purpose of this treatment is to create a natural-looking double-eyelid. The sutures are simply made to obtain a clear line. Large effects such as when removing skin and fat cannot be expected, but downtime is minimal.

Rhinoplasty: Alar reduction

Get a slimmer looking nose with alar reduction!

Alar reduction is a type of rhinoplasty which surgically reduces the width/ size of nasal alar and nostrils. There are two different methods; One is called the "external incision method", which is aimed to make the nose appear slimmer by making incisions on the external base of the alar. This method is most suited for patients with wide nose and large nasal overhang. Another method is called " internal incision method". This method makes incisions from the nasal base to the inside of the nasal cavity to create a smaller / slimmer looking nose. With this method, the scars are not noticeable since the incisions are made inside of your nose.

◆You would be a perfect candidate for this treatment if:

1. you wish to get smaller nostrils / alar.

2. your nose appears wider when you smile

3. your alar is wide.

4. your nostrils are wide

At Azabu Skin clinic, our doctor will have a careful consultation with each patients to decide the design adjusted to your needs, so you can achieve balance and beauty in your face!

You can combine this treatment with other rhinoplasty treatments such as hyaluronic acid injection and thread-lift for more defined, sharper looking nose!

Cosmetic Gynecology

If you would like to change the appearance of your labia, why not consult with our doctor how to improve such issues and discuss your options.

Labia minora (inner lip) reduction

The problems related to the labia minora are mostly "lip protrusion or elongation, or asymmetry.” Normally the inner lips of the vagina are faintly visible when both legs are slightly closed. The excess skin or tissue would be trimmed and the gap closed with the help of stitches.

Labia majora (outer lips) reduction

The labia majora is two marked folds of skin that extend from the groin area near the thigh to the labia minora. The labia majora often has the appearance of being plump mound of skin. But if the folds are thick, lumpy or protruding, incisions can be made to remove excess tissue or skin to reshape the folds.

A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT

Dear Reader,

On behalf of Azabu Skin Clinic, thank you for your time and interest in visiting our website.

The first step in solving skin problems is to find out the cause. Conducting the therapy and treatment which are most suitable for the cause and symptoms of a problem is the “shortcut for beautiful skin.” Like most women, I used to have skin problems. Hence, I would like to recover your skin’s own beauty as effectively as possible based on my own experience.

I became a Dermatologist after graduating from Tokyo Medical University. When I was still starting, I had the opportunity to work with and learn from the best mentors in the field of Dermatology. Their clinics were mostly located in the Tokyo Metropolitan and Kansai areas where a lot of patients with dermatological problems came in daily. The feeling of being able to help them solve their dermatological problems and be able to bring back their self-confidence was so rewarding and fulfilling. Hence, I decided to go a step further by establishing a clinic that would not only help the Japanese people but also the foreigners staying in Japan ― most of whom are having a hard time seeking professional help in the English vernacular.

Aside from participating in domestic conferences, I also actively participate in overseas conferences such as those held by the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery (ASLMS), and the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M). Attending and participating in these conferences enables me to continuously integrate the latest techniques and modern treatments into my practice.

Having a clinic located in the metropolis of Tokyo allows me to see and interact with patients from all over the world. The time that I spend with my patients, most of whom are foreigners, enables me to examine and be immersed in the different kinds of skin types and the problems that they are facing.

If you are currently experiencing any dermatological problem, it is my sincere wish to help you. Let me help you bring back your self-confidence by restoring your inner wellness and outer beauty. The process might be short or it might be long but I assure you that I will be with you every step of the way.

Together, let us make you better at Azabu Skin Clinic.

Sincerely yours,


Dr. Chiaki Kawashima
