Akai Medical Clinic
Omotesando and Yokohama
Receiving high-quality treatment is essential when changing your appearance. Akai Medical Clinic strives to help patients achieve the ideal beauty they desire. Both locations in the Kanto area, one in central Tokyo in trendy Omotesando and the other in Yokohama, boast top-class doctors, cutting-edge machinery, and processes not found elsewhere in Japan.
The popular clinic is run by Dr. Hidemi Akai and Dr. Keiko Akai. Dr. Hidemi Akai is a board-certified plastic surgeon who trained at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital, and currently is an associate professor in the department of Plastic, Aesthetic and Reconstructive Surgery at Showa University in Tokyo. Dr. Keiko Akai is also a board-certified plastic surgeon who is a skin care specialist and certified dermatologist. Akai Medical Clinic is fully equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and committed to offering the highest quality treatment to its customers, while the doctors’ wealth of experience dealing with foreign clientele helps each individual patient reach their desired look.
Akai Medical Clinic performs routine procedures such as liposuction, breast augmentation, reduction or lift, and cosmetic eye and nose surgery. In addition, Dr. Hidemi Akai is constantly introducing new technology and treatments to the clinic. A “Vampire Lift” may sound like something from a movie, but it’s the newest trend in rejuvenation treatment that utilizes your own blood as a source of nutrients to sustain and prolong youth—and you can now experience it at Akai Medical Clinic. The “Vampire Lift” regenerates tissue by circulating the body’s natural “growth factors” and creating a natural rejuvenation effect. In the areas where the injection is made, wrinkles and sagging will be lifted naturally. The overall quality of your skin will improve and regain its natural elasticity. While other treatments may cause damage through heat, the “Vampire Lift” is a heatless process that actively injects growth factors into particular parts, improving blood circulation, increasing collagen, and repairing tissues.
Other new options include Endy Med Pro and Infini, laser treatments that lift the skin. Recently upgraded, Endy Med Pro has four slimming heads and is able to tighten your skin and contour your face and body by reducing fat. This new radio frequency-based professional level treatment is an effective way to improve the quality of your skin. Infini is a new fractional RF device that is able to treat aging, sagging skin with pigmentation, wrinkles, and laxity.
Other specialized procedures can help alleviate acne, reduce acne scars, and repair sun-damaged skin. As the skin is the body’s largest organ, it can be easily damaged by ultraviolet rays, aging, and other stresses of modern life. Continued skin trouble can even lead to anxiety and tension. Let Akai Medical Clinic rejuvenate your skin with their cosmetic dermatology treatments. Akai Medical Clinic also treats skin tumors and skin cancer.
Both locations offer a wide array of treatment options. Contact the clinic today for a consultation and their skilled, bilingual staff will get you on your way to a great-looking you.

Pulice Beauty & Health
“Beauty starts with a great smile.” That’s the motto of Pulice, whose all-female staff help you look your best through a total beauty treatment plan that combines many esthetic services, including skin and nail care, in a relaxing atmosphere. Pulice’s staff can put together a treatment plan tailored to your individual needs. Available programs include the “Oral Dock Course,” the “Pulice Course,” and the “Periodontal Disease Treatment Course.”
The “Oral Dock Course” uses a new technology called VistaCam to quantify and differentiate the types of cavities that a normal x-ray would miss. Eight different examinations measure things like mouth odor and moisture level to identify all possible risks within the oral cavity, and a ten-second concentrated burst of ozone gas kills 99% of bacteria.
For those left feeling unsatisfied by a routine tooth cleaning, the “Pulice Course” provides an esthetic regimen that completely revitalizes you. After a full dental checkup, a gum and head massage is provided in an aromatic room, making this a luxurious cleaning course.
The “Periodontal Disease Treatment Course” offers a quick way to decrease the bacteria in your mouth that cause periodontal disease. Using a variety of methods, such as ozone gas that kills bacteria, oral medicine, and mouthwash, a highly-skilled dentist and a nutritionist work together to treat and prevent further decay and gum disease.
At Pulice, your privacy is a top priority and all treatment rooms are individual and private. All staff are female, including dentist Dr. Keiko. Having spent 12 years living overseas, she can easily attend to your needs in English. Having passed the strictest European regulations for safety and hygiene, Pulice is able to provide treatment with peace of mind.
Beauty doesn’t end with dental care, so Pulice offers additional treatments such as hyaluronan injections, face massages, and nail treatments. The hyaluronan injections, a needleless method for beautifying skin, delivers components directly to the dermic layer to reduce wrinkles around your mouth. The face massage helps the bones, lymph nodes, and muscles around your face work together to create a harmonious system. Together with anti-aging and nail treatments, these present women with a variety of choices. Let Pulice help you enjoy a beautiful and healthy life, step by step, in true Japanese omotenashi fashion.
