Precision is key at Lumina Skin Care Center. Not only does its aesthetic technology require laser accuracy to zero in on specific treatment areas, but its aestheticians also reference a 14-zone facial map to ensure their services are appropriately customized. Each licensed aesthetician relies on steady hands and a shrewd mind to use cutting-edge technologies such as LED (light-emitting diode) and IPL (intense pulsed light) to clarify and restore youth to complexions. For more traditional facials, aestheticians use Obagi products with ingredients—antioxidants, hydroquinone, Retin-A, and tretinoin—that yield specific benefits.
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.
People might not think of surgery as a creative field, but Dr. Ravi Dahiya disagrees. In fact, it?s the creative challenges of cosmetic and reconstructive surgery that the board-certified doctor loves so much about his job. Inside his practice at Potomac Facial Plastic Surgery, he applies this problem-solving spirit to the task of making clients look years younger, sometimes recommending face-lifts or eyebrow lifts, and sometimes injections of Radiesse or Juv?derm. He also restores youth by removing dead skin cells via microdermabrasion or chemical peels by Glytone. Dr. Dahiya fills bald spots with hair transplants or makes the whole body essentially one giant bald spot with laser hair-removal treatments.
The certified professionals at Alight Spa believe that spa treatments should rejuvenate guests by nourishing their mind and spirit, in addition to their body. The staff soothes all three by relieving stress, diminishing headaches, and boosting circulation with massage styles, such as Swedish, deep tissue, and scalp. The spa's steam-sauna sessions detoxify bodies and hydrate skin, and body wraps slim and soften clients with mixtures of herbs and minerals. Skin undergoes more reinvigoration with facials and chemical peels, during which cleansings, massages, and moisturizers clear up acne, even out pigmentation, and reduce wrinkles. The staff administers each procedure with a stock of professional products from brand-name manufacturers, such as Dermalogica, whose wares are also available for purchase.
