A note from the owner:
Hello, I'm Leah Lynch, Newburyport local and owner of Beautique! Beautique was created with the dream of bringing together fun, talented professionals with discerning clients in a casual and homey environment. The number one feedback we get, besides our high skill level, is that clients really feel welcome and comfortable in our cute, intimate space.

After only a few years in business, we were honored with FIVE Best of North Shore awards, as well as magazine and television appearances, international recognition, and awards for our lash extension services.

As the creator of Lash Affair Academy, a national training company, I am able to provide a unique and high level of training to my staff that sets us apart from competitors.

I couldn’t be more grateful for my amazing team. Come see what everyone's talking about!

Hanh Doan
Beautique is pleased to welcome Newburyport favorite Hanh Dolan, skin care and waxing expert. Hanh built her career in Newburyport at Paradiso Day Spa and after a hiatus from town she is excited to be back.

As a young adult, Hanh worked with her father at his dermatology practice in California. After working with him for a while, she went off to school and graduated with a degree in Bio-Chemistry, beginning her career path at a pharmaceutical company in 2005. During her time there, Hanh couldn’t help but to remember the years she spent with her father and his patients. She thought about them often and remembered how, after treatments for certain diseases and disorders, the patients’ skin seemed to lose its luster, shine, and in some cases, even its elasticity. Hanh regularly wondered how she could help.

It was with this intention that she decided to leave the pharmaceutical industry and pursue her CA Esthetician’s License with the aim of learning how to bring beauty, health and radiance back to the skin of the people who needed it most. She spent some time researching schools and finally decided on Catherine Hinds Institute because she liked the reputation that they’d built. It was then that she moved to Massachusetts to begin the Master Esthetics program.

These days, Hanh is trained in laser hair removal, skin rejuvenation, microdermabrasion, various types of facials, cellulite treatment, spray tanning, Venus Freeze, make-up artistry and more. And her work hasn’t gone unnoticed either! She is the recipient of Northshore Magazine’s Best Brow Award! And, before coming to Beautique, she was also noticed by Christian Dior and hired as a skincare consultant and make-up artist. But these days, Hanh has moved on to even greater things. She is a significantly valued member of the Spa family and continues to take pride in making her clients look and feel beautiful each and every day.

Dr. Mark Markarian
As an Aesthetic-trained Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Markarian has a unique perspective when it comes to injecting fillers. Not only has he undergone advanced training in performing various types of filler injections including Voluma®, Juvederm®, Restylane®, Perlane®, Belotero®, and Radiesse®, but also commonly operates in the face for browlifts and facelifts. As such, Dr. Markarian has directly observed the areas under the skin, and has learned first-hand the incredible variability between patients, as opposed to only what can be learned through diagrams and lectures. Dr. Markarian believes this helps him guide where to inject fillers and where not to. Dr. Markarian is also one of a handful of plastic surgeons in Massachusetts who took the Allergan Expert Hands-on training course specific for Voluma® injection and this is his most popular filler. Voluma® is a new filler manufactured by Allergan specifically for the cheek, and most injectors’ experiences are limited.

Dr. Markarian has taught other health care providers how to properly inject fillers at courses and conferences, and enjoys performing them in his practice. By utilizing the optimal type of filler in the correct location, Dr. Markarian will help you reach your anti-aging goals for your face.

Dr Mark K Markarian, MD, MSPH is a Harvard-trained board-certified aesthetic plastic surgeon with extensive surgery experience and a rigorous academic background that have allowed him to create a unique path to find his passion in the field.  Dr. Markarian started high school at the age of 11, and college at the age of 15. He studied Biology and Criminology at the University of California, Irvine, completed his Master of Science in Public Health with a concentration in Epidemiology at Emory University, and then performed clinical research at Yale University. He returned to Georgia to attend medical school, and subsequently traveled across the country to complete six years of General Surgery Residency and three years of Plastic Surgery Residency. He then completed an additional year of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Fellowship at Harvard University. The Harvard fellowship accepts only 1 plastic surgeon per year, and is regarded by many as not only the top aesthetic plastic surgery fellowship in the United States, but as one of the top programs in the world. Following the completion of his training, he became a candidate member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. Dr. Markarian’s primary office is in Wellesley MA.

While he was honing his skills as a surgeon, Dr. Markarian was also an active contributor to the field of plastic surgery, authoring numerous articles and chapters in many prominent journals including Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, Clinics in Plastic Surgery and Annals of Plastic Surgery. He had the opportunity to present clinical research at multiple plastic surgery conferences including the annual meetings of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, the Northeastern Society of Plastic Surgery, and the California Society of Plastic Surgery. He was also selected to be a reviewer for Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery and Aesthetic Surgery Journal, and will be editing and authoring chapters in an upcoming Plastic Surgery review textbook.

He was born in London and grew up overseas in Cyprus, Singapore, and Thailand, before relocating to the United States at the age of 10. Dr. Markarian speaks four languages – English, Armenian, Arabic, and Greek – and his unique background has allowed him to instantly connect with his patients through an unparalleled appreciation and understanding of diversity.

Dr. Markarian understands the delicate interplay between appearance and self-confidence. He believes that everyone has a unique vision of their personal aesthetic ideal that should be understood by your plastic surgeon. During your patient consultation, he will focus on your specific concerns and goals, and offer a comprehensive evaluation to discuss the complete range of both surgical and non-surgical treatment options spanning traditional and cutting-edge technology. Most importantly, he is committed to setting the highest standards of care, delivering the best patient education, safety, privacy, comfort, and surgical results.

Dr. Markarian’s areas of particular focus and interest include Facelifts, Necklifts, Rhinoplasty (including Ethnic Rhinoplasty), Blepharoplasty, Breast Augmentation &Mastopexy, and Body Contouring including Brachioplasty, Abdominoplasty, Gluteal Contouring, and Abdominal Etching.

In his spare time, Dr. Markarian is a huge movie buff and a weekend athlete, often enjoying a game of basketball or a bit of tennis with friends. He tries to visit his family in Whittier, California as often as he can, where he volunteers teaching math and science at the junior high school where his mother teaches.
