The father-and-son doctor duo at Reisin Aesthetic Institute tailors beauty-bolstering procedures to the needs of each client. Steamroll the creases on the forehead or between the brows or pry away crow's-feet perched on the eye sills with a treatment of Dysport, an FDA-approved injectable solution ($5/unit). The quick, minimally invasive session halts muscles as frown lines are temporarily tapped out for up to nine months. On average, 50–70 units of Dysport per area are used to diminish fine lines, with minimal downtime and visible results within a few days.
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.
Since earning her MD at George Washington University in 1976, board-certified dermatologist Dr. Susan T. Elliott has enjoyed contributing to research on skin diseases and practicing at the Center for Laser Surgery before opening Foxhall Dermatology in 2011. There she heads a team of nurses, aestheticians, and medical assistants who provide skincare treatments and evaluations using such high-tech methods as dermoscopy, a mole-evaluation system. Other treatments range from cosmetic?IPL photofacials and Fraxel laser therapy?to medical, including skin-cancer screening and treatment. The team is adept with physician-grade products, relying on formulas from Avene and Glytone to treat acne and other skin problems.
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.
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.
