Conveniently located to serve Honolulu and Hawaii
Excellent! Great natural option to fillers. I highly recommend this procedure for face, body shaping and contouring. I am happy with the results.

Juvéderm Voluma XC—Voluma for short—is the best selling filler in the United States and is always available in Dr. Tantisira’s Honolulu office!
Cosmetic doctors in the U.S. love Voluma, a hyaluronic acid filler which works especially well restoring volume to cheeks. One of the hallmarks of aging is volume loss in the central area of the face due to a combination of fat, muscle and bone atrophy, which results in flattening, or even hollowing of the cheeks, and therefore sagging skin lower down. This sagging creates wrinkles lower down, such as nasolabial folds (smile lines), marionette folds, and jowls. Careful placement of Voluma in that central area replaces youthful volume and decreases the wrinkles below the cheeks, in a procedure known as the “Liquid Facelift”.
Dr. Tantisira has a love of art, with sculpture being one of her specialties. This liquid facelift allows her to sculpt faces into a more youthful, but natural contour. Her gentle, microsurgeon’s touch also make the treatment more comfortable than expected. Because volume loss, not excess skin, is often the root cause of an aging face, her Liquid Facelifts often win her patient more compliments than their surgical facelifts!
Another unique quality to Voluma is that it can last for two years—exceptional longevity for a hyaluronic acid—and something that makes it particularly appealing to patients who dislike returning for frequent refills. According to Derek H. Jones, a Beverly Hills dermatologist and the lead investigator in the study, “Voluma lasted in cheeks for up to two years”, as much as twice the endurance of other HA’s. Dr. Tantisira has been offering “Liquid Face-lifts” in her practice for many years, and also offers other fillers as alternatives. The appropriate filler for each patient is determined in free individual consultation in her central Honolulu office.
