"Facial surgery is much like making up a bed nicely," says Dr. Daria Hamrah on his website. "If the mattress is lumpy, there isn?t much point in spreading a nice bedcover over it (that is, if the bones and muscles are problematic, fixing the skin doesn?t help much)."
Dr. Hamrah, who is certified by the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, and a licensed facial cosmetic surgeon, lets this philosophy guide him, focusing on both the face's surface and, more importantly, on the underlying structure that supports it as he reshapes noses, lifts brows, adds lip implants, or attaches third eyes. He further beautifies faces with oral surgical procedures and med-spa treatments, all performed within an office that evokes the tranquility of a spa with its warm brown walls and flower-lined hallways while still maintaining a hospital-quality operating room.
For more than 20 years, Dr. Richard P. Giannotto?a Georgetown University School of Medicine graduate?has employed the latest in hair and skincare technology to keep men aging gracefully. To help thicken manes affected by hair loss, Dr. Giannotto performs a thorough evaluation to determine his client's needs before crafting a custom treatment plan from a slate of innovative regimens. Low-level lasers take a noninvasive approach to staving off future thinning by stimulating follicles at the root. For extensive hair loss, more intense methods such as follicular unit extraction surgically extract one strand at a time from the scalp?s lusher patches and place them in areas that need more growth, much like Robin Hood?s approach to gardening.
Meanwhile, skincare and preventative aging treatments keep the rest of men?s features fresh. Fine lines and drooping skin benefit from liquid face-lifts, which rely on dermal injections to plump and smooth visage tissues, and microdermabrasion and chemical peels call on DermaMed and Obagi skincare products to refine the entire complexion. The clinic's holistic Quality of Life Medical Program also helps clients ward off signs of age through hormone therapy, proper nutrition, stress management, and turning clients? baseball caps backwards.
Smooth Exposure's medical microdermabrasion services help clients smooth fine lines and wrinkles while treating blackheads and signs of aging. An applicator sweeps across the skin to clear away the top layer of cells and fade surface imperfections to reveal younger skin. The procedure brightens skin's tone and evens its texture.
The same advanced technology contributes to much of Smooth Exposure's menu. From laser hair-removal sessions to treatments for sun damage, age spots, and acne, their offerings take advantage of IPL tools to leave the skin silky and refreshed. The staff also administers facials, chemical peels, spray tans, and specialized injections, which include energy-lifting B12 shots and dermal fillers such as Botox and Restylane.
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.
Even though he's a trained cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Rassael knows that not every beauty concern requires going under the knife. That's why he and his team at Millennium Medical offer laser treatments, beauty injections, and noninvasive body contouring in addition to surgical procedures such as lifts, tucks, and traditional liposuction. From lasers that diminish leg veins and unwanted hair to Lipo-Light devices designed to slim down trouble spots, the clinic's state-of-the-art facilities feature a range of noninvasive equipment to rejuvenate complexions.
Madame et Monsieur's non-invasive, FDA-approved ElectroSlim technology helps clients get buff. Electrodes attached to the target area deliver electronic pulses that stimulate more than 1,000 muscle contractions in a single one-hour session. The soothing procedure feels like a deep-tissue massage, but delivers the muscle-building results of a serious sweat session. ElectroSlim can tone specific areas that normal exercise doesn't reach as well as burning away excess amounts of fat, redefining the client's overall body shape.
