Born and raised in Hawai’i, Krystal is extremely passionate about consistent sun protection and its role in preventing the signs of aging and the development of skin cancers. As an Asian American, Krystal specializes in ethnic skin care and recognizes how certain skin conditions, such as acne, scarring, hyperpigmentation, and skin cancer, affect ethnic skin more than other types of skin. Krystal is also an expert aesthetic injector who specializes in noninvasive facial rejuvenation and prides herself in taking the most natural approach to enhance a patient’s facial features. She utilizes a combination of neurotoxins, facial fillers, laser resurfacing, and chemical peels to ensure the patient’s expectations are exceeded and that they leave satisfied with their results.
