From her 20s through her 40s, Dotty Holoubek struggled with cystic acne. Ultimately, Holoubek conquered it—not only on her own face but on others’ as well—after training at Chesapeake School of Esthetics. At her eponymous skincare clinic, she tends acne-prone complexions with Environ products, whose Vitamin A promotes collagen production. The products also combat two of Dotty’s other pet issues, rosacea and sun-damage. Another one of her specialties, microcurrent facial sculpting, beams eight different waveforms into epidermis, activating facial muscles to minimize wrinkles. Certified in oncology aesthetics, Dotty can also craft custom skincare treatments for people living with cancer.
Dr. Green is a board-certified dermatologist with more than 25 years of experience, taking care to personally provide all of the laser and injectable services at Cosmetic & Laser Center of Annapolis and Dr. Green, M.D. Today he fills his center with cutting-edge technology and skin care—perhaps most evident in his chemical peels. Combining aesthetic go-tos such as glycolic and alpha-hydroxyl acids with patented Melaplex and GLX technology, he creates custom elixirs that fight fine lines, brighten complexions, and rejuvenate smiles.
Dr. Green's treatments don't end with chemicals though. With his Starlux 1540 Fractional Laser Resurfacing Treatment, Lightsheer Laser Hair Removal and Nd:YAG laser systems he harnesses light to reduce the appearance of acne scars, remove unsightly stubble, and erase unwanted tattoos. IPL photorejuvenation and Thermage CPT Skin Firming & Tightening Treatment treatments take a slightly different approach, yet still manage to improve skin tone by stimulating collagen production in the dermal layers.
Inside an unassuming brick building, Ridgely Retreat takes its name seriously. The multifaceted spa, wellness center, and yoga studio offers mental escapes in the form of hot-stone massages and meditation classes as well as physical relief in the form of acupuncture and chiropractic services. The eclectic yoga offerings range from gentle and Vinyasa classes to yoga dance, wine-and-cheese yoga, children’s yoga, and the newly added aerial yoga. On the spa side, services such as glycolic peels and Fraxel laser resurfacing flaunt a modern edge, though the cherry-blossom facial, detox body wrap, and warm bamboo treatment let clients experience the kind of classic relaxation enjoyed by hedonistic pandas the world over.
The Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery, The Professional Aesthetic Image Center, P.C. and its highly trained staff are committed to providing the finest health care to its patients. To this end, our office uses only the most up-to-date equipment and techniques.
Private Practice of Annapolis is the domain of Tammy Kennedy Wolfe, the clinic owner and head aesthetician who's been reforming troubled complexions since 1976. The skincare expert has experience in camouflage therapy from a Washington D.C. hospital burn unit, as well as has worked with the prestigious Johns Hopkins dermatology center. She's joined by plastic surgeon Dr. James Chappell, and aesthetician/makeup artist Christina Noelle Somensky, who has created looks for national advertising campaigns and TV shows.
The team refreshes faces with everything from Botox injections to microdermabrasion treatments to medical-grade facial peels. Once complexions are restored, Christina swoops in with airbrush tools and lipstick brushes to create flawless faces.
No matter what look a client asks for, no matter how trendy it is, Luxe Studio's stylists are prepared to execute it. Once a month, every staffer learns about the latest trends, methods, and political coups taking place in the world of style. This means they're totally ready to handle anything their clients throw at them during their in-depth consultations, though they specialize specifically in hair color and extensions.
Away from the salon chairs, aestheticians wax away unwanted hair, and a Reiki practitioner works to balance energy and relieve stress. The salon's makeup artists help clients select makeup shades that flatter their skin tone and hair and eye color.
