Dr. Sanjiv Saini and the team of physician assistants and registered nurses at MD Dermatology of Maryland tend to the medical and aesthetic needs of skin at their state-of-the-art facilities. They perform scalp-to-toe screenings to check for malicious moles, growths, or "kick me" signs, and they treat conditions such as acne, eczema, and melasma. On the medical spa side of things, they offer beauty injections and chemical peels, as well as laser skin surfacing, laser hair removal, and professional-grade products for purchase.
Dr. Whitten's resume flaunts more than 100,000 LASIK surgeries, more than 30 years of experience, and an illustrious client base that includes sports stars such as Tiger Woods and Brad Johnson. The blade-free LASIK procedure reshapes unfocused corneas in about 8 minutes, after which the doctor recommends that clients embark on a short nap by counting high-definition sheep. Vision improves immediately following the procedure and continues to do so over the next few weeks. Patients should recruit a chauffeur the day of their procedure, as they may experience some irritation and watering, obstructing view and convincing other drivers they took their honks to heart. Included in this deal are postoperation eye drops to help healing and prevent dryness for weeks to come.
"Varicose veins are large veins on the legs that occur because of an underlying condition known as venous reflux disease," explained Dr. Meghal Antani, a board-certified vascular specialist, during a segment on GTV's The Capital Forum. According to Dr. Antani, this condition afflicts 20%–30% of women and 10%–15% of men. Dr. Antani, along with a team of experienced medical specialists at Center for Interventional Medicine, has treated vein conditions—including venous reflux disease—more than 10,000 times. To deliver effective results with little discomfort and downtime, they offer three minimally invasive advanced techniques using state-of-the-art equipment: endovenous ablation, sclerotherapy, and phlebectomy. Whereas endovenous ablation closes a damaged vein by applying light energy, sclerotherapy seals small spider veins with an FDA-approved medicine. During a phlebectomy, the physician extracts the vein through a tiny hole with a grasping tool or a pair of chopsticks. The conveniently located facility is just off major highway exits, and free parking is available out front.
After delivering more than 1,000 bundles of joy in his career as an OB/GYN, Dr. Keith S. Kelly shifted his focus to the aesthetic applications of medicine. Though he still conducts annual exams and gynecological treatments, he now also enhances physiques with liposuction, tummy tucks, and facelifts. The same friendly demeanor and compassionate approach he developed while working with women in labor and negotiating contracts with storks now goes into putting his new patients at ease. Knowing that cosmetic surgery can be a little daunting, Dr. Kelly makes sure to schedule plenty of time to explain procedures to folks. For those looking for a dose of rejuvenation without going under the knife, his clinic also offers Diamond Tome microdermabrasion, beauty injections, and vitamin injections.
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.
At Back to Nature Health and Wellness Center, leading practitioner Argo Duenas's deep belief in the benefits of holistic healing took her off the path of traditional medical nursing two decades ago and redirected her journey toward certification in colonic hygiene, reflexology, and energy adjustment. Inside her clean, homey, brick-fronted clinic, Duenas relies on drug-free methods such as reiki, colon hydrotherapy, and ear candling to purge the body of toxins and attempt to alleviate ailments ranging from digestive disorgers to chronic fatigue. Argo also teaches body awareness, and preventative wellness through lectures and seminars.
