Chevy Chase area physician Dr. Hadi Michael Rassael takes a closer look at the latest cutting-edge non-surgical cosmetic rejuvenation procedures and treatments.
From microdermabrasion to radiofrequency and platelet-rich plasma treatments, non-surgical cosmetic rejuvenation procedures are now used as an entirely viable alternative to more traditional surgical cosmetic procedures. Founder of Millennium Medical, based in Montgomery County, Maryland, and a physician for more than two decades, Dr. Hadi Michael Rassael provides a closer, professional look at the benefits of so-called non-surgical rejuvenation treatments.
“Costly traditional cosmetic surgical procedures now have a huge number of non-surgical alternatives,” explains Dr. Rassael, a well-respected physician and an expert on both surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures catering predominantly to patients in and around Chevy Chase and DC metropolitan area.
Around for decades, more traditional surgical procedures, he says, include facelifts, upper and lower eyelid surgeries, endoscopic brow lifts, and facial implants. “Traditional surgery, whether cosmetic or otherwise, always poses an inherent risk, and a lengthy aftercare period is often called for,” explains Dr. Rassael. Some degree of scarring, he says, is also typical with many of the more traditional cosmetic surgical procedures regularly offered.
More modern alternatives often called non-surgical rejuvenation procedures or non-surgical cosmetic procedures, however, are, according to Dr. Rassael, as a rule, much less risky, and require little or no aftercare or downtime.
“More cost-effective and non-invasive, aftercare and recovery times are minimal, and most such procedures pose zero risk of scarring or serious pain,” he explains. The result, much like with traditional surgery, is a rejuvenated appearance, but with many fewer risks and less inconvenience involved, expert Dr. Rassael suggests.
“Non-surgical rejuvenation procedures include so-called non-surgical facelifts which utilize dermal fillers, ultrasound, laser lifts, and the application of intense pulsed light, for example,” Dr. Rassael explains. Other non-surgical cosmetic procedures highlighted by the expert include platelet-rich plasma treatments, radiofrequency treatments, and what’s known as microdermabrasion.
“Microdermabrasion is a truly non-invasive treatment,” he reveals, “which deeply but gently exfoliates the skin to reveal a smoother, brighter, and more even complexion.”
“Perfect for modern, busy lives,” Dr. Rassael adds, wrapping up, “from intense pulsed light treatments to microdermabrasion, the growing range of cutting-edge non-surgical rejuvenation procedures on offer today represent an ideal solution for those seeking a rejuvenated appearance without the risks and inconvenience of traditional cosmetic surgery.”

Physician Dr. Hadi Michael Rassael shares details of the latest laser skin resurfacing procedures.
Cosmetic laser treatments and laser skin resurfacing, also known as laser vaporization, lasabrasion, or laser peels, are designed and developed to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles, scars, and other blemishes. With the latest cosmetic laser treatment procedures now more effective than ever, well-respected physician Dr. Hadi Michael Rassael looks at the benefits afforded to both patients and practitioners as the technology continues to evolve.
“The latest technologies offer entirely new levels of both efficacy and control in laser skin resurfacing, with this increased control, in particular, allowing previously impossible degrees of precision, essential when working in more delicate areas,” explains Dr. Rassael, who’s based in Montgomery County, Maryland, and caters to patients in and around the Chevy Chase area and entire DC metropolitan region.
Using beams of concentrated, pulsating light, practitioners such as Dr. Rassael use specialized laser devices to precisely remove individual, microscopic layers of damaged skin—called the epidermis—one at a time. “Further to removing visible damage, the process also stimulates the production of collagen fibers by the body,” Dr. Rassael explains, “which results in a smoother, firmer appearance of the skin in the area or areas undergoing treatment.”
Cosmetic laser skin resurfacing, laser vaporization, lasabrasion, or laser peels are intended to improve facial lines and wrinkles, particularly around the eyes and mouth, acne or chickenpox scars, liver spots, birthmarks, and sun-damaged and generally aging skin. “Cosmetic laser skin resurfacing may also be utilized to address so-called ‘non-responsive’ skin following a facelift procedure,” adds Dr. Hadi Michael Rassael.
Between ablative and non-ablative cosmetic laser skin resurfacing procedures, two modern varieties of laser are commonly used, known as pulsing or continuous light beam carbon dioxide lasers, and erbium lasers, which may also be used on the neck, chest, and hands, as well as the face.
While treatment with carbon dioxide lasers may result in a total recovery time of more than one week, those undergoing less invasive erbium laser treatments should be fully healed within one week, according to Dr. Rassael, although, he points out, this may vary from one patient to patient.
“The latest cosmetic laser treatments are typically and most commonly carried out on an outpatient basis,” he adds, wrapping up, “taking between 30 minutes and two hours to complete in most instances.”

Physician Dr. Hadi Rassael explains more about so-called ‘fillers’ employed within the cosmetic medicine field and wider beauty industry.
From Juvéderm to Restylane and Belotero Balance, cosmetic fillers are becoming increasingly popular in the United States, today representing a multi-billion dollar industry. That’s according to established and well-respected physician Dr. Hadi Rassael, based in Friendship Village, Maryland, as he reveals more about cosmetic fillers and other, similar products and procedures.
Most fillers today, says Dr. Hadi Rassael, utilize hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance found in the skin. “Most of the best-known and most effective fillers consist of hyaluronic acid, including Juvéderm and Restylane products—such as Juvéderm XC and Restylane Silk, Lyft, Refyne, and Defyne—as well as Belotero Balance,” explains the highly experienced physician, who routinely caters to patients in and around the Chevy Chase area and further afield.
Other filler brands, meanwhile, he says, employ substances including calcium hydroxylapatite, another naturally occurring substance, as well as poly-l-lactic acid—a biodegradable synthetic substance—and polymethylmethacrylate, another synthetic, biocompatible material which also includes collagen for structure and firmness.
“Fillers, or dermal fillers, as they’re known more formally, are injected under the skin to restore volume, smooth lines, and soften deeper wrinkles, among other benefits,” Dr. Hadi Rassael explains, further sharing a professional insight into the subject. “Fillers are capable of facilitating everything from smoothing out so-called smile lines and restoring volume in sunken cheeks, for example, to plumping and enhancing the lips and improving symmetry in an individual’s facial features,” adds the physician.
Fillers are often employed in combination with so-called neuromodulators, such as Botox, with these and other similar treatments accounting for more than 10 million cosmetic procedures last year in the United States, according to figures published by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
“It’s important that, when looking for fillers, neuromodulators, or other surgical or non-surgical cosmetic procedures,” Dr. Rassael adds, wrapping up, “an individual seeks the advice of a qualified and experienced professional in order to ascertain the safest, best, and most effective approach for their personal requirements.”

Dr. Hadi Michael Rassael Explains Benefits of Cosmetic Neuromodulators
Physician Dr. Hadi Rassael shares an insight into the benefits of Botox and other neuromodulators.
Offering a variety of cosmetic procedures and surgeries, established and well-respected physician Dr. Hadi Michael Rassael is based in Friendship Heights Village, Chevy Chase, Maryland and serves individuals in and around the Chevy Chase area and further afield. Here, Dr. Rassael offers his professional insight into the application and benefits of Botox and other cosmetic neuromodulators.
“Neuromodulators, such as Botox, and other forms of injectable cosmetic treatment, including dermal fillers, continue to grow in popularity in the United States,” explains Dr. Rassael.
Indeed, such treatments accounted for more than 10 million cosmetic procedures last year in the U.S. according to figures published by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. “Botox and other, similar neuromodulators contain a scientifically developed substance formulated to paralyze muscles,” Dr. Rassael continues, “which can help to significantly minimize the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, predominantly caused by facial expressions, often referred to as ‘laughter lines,’ ‘expression lines,’ or, more formally, ‘dynamic wrinkles.'”
By blocking nerve signals in the muscles into which the treatment is injected, lines and wrinkles are softened, reduced, or—quite often, according to Dr. Rassael—completely eliminated. “By temporarily paralyzing the muscle or muscles responsible for causing obvious lines or wrinkles, those same perceived imperfections are effectively banished,” he adds, pointing out that, while highly effective, Botox and other neuromodulators only affect lines caused by muscle movement, and not solely by aging.
“Botox and similar solutions are most widely used to treat the forehead, the area between the brows, and so-called ‘crow’s feet’ around the eyes,” Dr. Rassael reveals, “all of which are most commonly caused by normal, day-to-day facial expressions.”
Static Wrinkles with Dr. Rassael
For ‘static wrinkles,’ however, neuromodulators are largely ineffective, according to the expert, with lines or wrinkles caused by the normal aging process calling for dermal fillers instead. “Unlike with Botox, lines and wrinkles on the cheeks, neck, and around the mouth should be addressed using dermal fillers to restore a look of fullness,” adds Dr. Rassael, “although, again, these are largely ineffective in the areas where neuromodulators are best used.”
It’s important, therefore, he says, that patients seek the advice of a qualified and experienced professional in order to ascertain the best and most effective cosmetic procedure or procedures for their own individual circumstances.
“The effects of Botox and other cosmetic neuromodulators typically last for around four months,” Dr. Rassael adds, wrapping up, “after which time, the process may be repeated as the patient wishes.”

Dr. Hadi Rassael Shares the Story of His Route into Cosmetic Medicine
Physician Dr. Hadi Rassael looks back on his decades of medical training and experience, and his route into surgical and non-surgical cosmetic medicine.
CHEVY CHASE, MARYLAND, UNITED STATES, March 7, 2019,/EbizNewswire/ — An established and well-respected physician today focused on both surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures in the community surrounding Chevy Chase, Maryland, Dr. Hadi Rassael reflects on his years of training, passion for meticulous surgery, and subsequent decades-long career in cosmetic medicine, today at the helm of Millennium Medical.
“Prior to first pursuing the goal to be a physician, I’d always harbored a desire to become a surgeon,” reveals Dr. Rassael.
During his graduate work at Georgetown University—a private research university in the Georgetown neighborhood of Washington, D.C.—Dr. Rassael became extensively involved in research projects involving microsurgical techniques. “As my understanding of medicine, anatomy, and surgery grew,” he continues, “I became particularly interested in the specifics of ENT, a medical specialty which deals with conditions and disorders of the ear, nose, and throat, and also covers problems tied to other parts of the head and neck.”
This interest drove Dr. Rassael to pursue research into more ENT-focused medicine, and, ultimately, after his general surgery training, to undertake ahead and neck fellowship at the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology. Located in the grounds of the Walter Reed Army Medical Center, also in Washington, D.C., the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology is a U.S. government institution concerned with diagnostic consultation, education, pathology, and medical research.
“During my two years of fellowship, I completed extensive research in the fields of head and neck surgery and pathology,” reveals Dr. Rassael.
However, as a result of his growing passion for detailed, meticulous surgery, he says, his focus switched to cosmetic medicine where he took it upon himself to become involved in further training both in facial and body cosmetic surgeries. “Here, through independent training, fueled by my own artistic tendencies, and later via my affiliation with the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, I was able to fine-tune both my surgical and non-surgical techniques in the field of cosmetic medicine,” Dr. Rassael explains.
Today in practice for more than 20 years, Dr. Rassael is the founder of Millennium Medical. Based in Friendship Village, Maryland, close to the town of Chevy Chase, cosmetic surgeon Dr. Rassael’s primary focus combines modern technologies and procedures with true expertise to provide cutting-edge breast augmentation, liposuction, facial plastic, hair restoration treatments, and more.

A second recent patient, meanwhile, continues, “Dr. Hadi Rassael and his staff are top notches for all manner of cosmetic procedures, and I highly recommend him and his team; Millennium Medical is the best cosmetic surgery practice in Chevy Chase.”
A particular expert on hair transplantation, liposuction, breast augmentation, abdominoplasty, and facial plastic surgeries, Dr. Rassael also bears an in-depth knowledge of Botox and other neuromodulators, laser treatments, fillers, non-surgical rejuvenation, and anti-aging treatments.

Dr. Hadi Michael Rassael Discusses Hair Loss Recovery Procedures
Deciding what hair loss treatment is right for you can be difficult without the right guidance. With years of experience, Dr. Hadi Michael Rassael offers advice on follicular unit transplantation.

A very popular option that Dr. Hadi Michael Rassael often offers his patients is Follicular Unit Transplantation, or (FUT) which is a great option for treating various hair loss symptoms in their entirety.
Follicular unit transplantation is a hair restoration option that uses tiny follicle grafts that are taken from a donor site on the individual patient’s scalp and carefully transplanted onto the bald area in order to create sustained living hair that grows into the balding spots. Follicular unit transplantation can yield impressive results simply because these grafts are small and only contain one to four hairs, leading to a much more natural looking result for the patient.
Dr. Hadi Michael Rassael recommends this procedure for patients who are in good health and have experienced male pattern baldness, hair loss due to scars, burns, and trauma, or even do to facial surgery procedures. Dr. Hadi Michael Rassael typically recommends surgery for a variety of age ranges after a private consultation. Because of this unique approach to hair loss recovery, the procedure will typically be performed at peak baldness, or when the patient has completely lost their hair to yield the best overall results.
Women can also undergo this procedure, as Dr. Hadi Michael Rassael is always committed to an improvement for each and every patient in his care, wanting to yield the very best results for everyone under his care.
Hair loss is a very personal and private matter, and Dr. Hadi Michael Rassael prides his practice on complete discretion and creating plans for each patient that will help them to live a more fulfilling and healthy life, and with over two decades of practice, Dr. Hadi Michael Rassael always achieves fantastic results with his patients and their recovery.
