For more than 15 years, Color Me Today’s technicians have provided permanent-makeup applications, hair tattoos that cover bald areas, and scar camouflage procedures that mask everything from stretch marks to areola scars. Their permanent-makeup skills also extend to transgender feminization and areola repigmentation, and tattoo removal and collagen-induction therapy round out their list of services.
Women can chose bikini ($250 a treatment), underarms ($200 a treatment), upper lip ($125 a treatment), or chin ($125 a treatment), while men can de-fuzz neck napes or hairlines (not redeemable toward cool stencil shapes or mazes for ladybugs). Using the mighty and buzzed-about Alma Lasers' Soprano system, you'll get pain-free hair removal with permanent results. The Soprano laser features IN-Motion technology to reduce procedure time and pain. This Groupon must be applied toward the same treatment area on all three treatments.
Dr. M.R. Khalifeh is a pretty busy guy. When the double board-certified plastic surgeon and former Johns Hopkins assistant professor isn't discussing plastic surgery on Fox 5 or publishing research papers and book chapters, he's performing tummy tucks, breast enhancements, and laser liposuction procedures that employ minimal scarring techniques. Dr. Khalifeh and his team have also mastered a number of nonsurgical aesthetic treatments. Five types of dermal fillers including Botox and Restylane plump fine lines and give lips a sultry pout, and laser resurfacing and chemical peels exfoliate the skin to make complexions shine like the North Star does when the galaxy has a voicemail.
WIDLS, Washington Institute for Dentistry & Laser Surgery, offers cutting edge technology integration in today's dental cosmetics and oral health therapies. While Dr. Claudia Cotca believes that beauty starts with health, she focuses on lasers and porcelain as her long standing technology optimized treatment interests.
Samir Neimat, MD, is a veteran voyager of the circulatory system. Since gaining his board certification in thoracic and cardiovascular surgery in 1976, he has mended more than 7,000 open hearts and earned recognition as one of Washingtonian magazine's top doctors and darts players for 16 consecutive years. Through The Vein Clinic of Washington, Dr. Neimat circulates his talent through the treatment of varicose veins, spider veins, and venous diseases. He observes methods as diverse as foam therapy, sclerosant injections, and laser treatments.
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 Juvéderm. 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.
Growing up in Fargo, North Dakota, Dr. Neal Barnard’s extended family included both doctors and cattle ranchers. Perhaps it was this environment that led him to begin researching the role of nutrition in conditions such as diabetes and obesity, as well as the link between animal-based diets and health care. In 1985, Dr. Barnard founded the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine as a means to explore these issues.
The nonprofit organization promotes preventive medicine, conducts clinical research, and encourages alternatives to animal testing, garnering support from celebrities including James Franco and Kevin Nealon. The group educates people on vegan-based health and nutrition topics, working to curb conditions such as chronic illness, childhood obesity, and an inability to distinguish a broccoli floret from model-railroad shrubbery.
