Dr. Shannon Ginnan has spent the past decade honing his understanding of aesthetic and laser medicine, and he was even an educator for Palomar and Cynosure technologies. Now he operates Medalase Aesthetic Centers, which?was named Northern Virginia Magazine's best med spa in 2014.
As the name suggests, Dr. Ginnan's clinic is home to a slew of laser treatments, from fractional skin resurfacing to photo rejuvenation to laser hair removal. He and his team also use lasers to contour bodies during laser-liposuction treatments or rely on a vibrating cannula to do the job during Tickle Lipo procedures. Other popular treatments include dermal fillers and Botox injections, which make clients look young enough to join a high school sports team.
Utilizing the latest advances in aesthetic technology, Belleza Lase's technicians help clients combat common skincare concerns, all without resorting to invasive medical procedures. The center's Alma Harmony cosmetic laser system can treat a wide range of skin and hair types, such as zapping away unwanted hair or reducing the appearance of unsightly spider veins. IPL photofacials rejuvenate faces by using pulsed light energy to treat hyperpigmented blemishes?such as age spots and rosacea?and stimulate collagen production. Additionally, Belleza Lase's technicians perform skin-resurfacing facials to reduce signs of wrinkles, acne scars, and unnoticed pizza stains. These procedures tend to require significantly less healing time than traditional ablative laser facials.

The aestheticians at Elume Medical Spa work to address skin's problems, including fine lines and blemishes, using advanced med-spa technology and meticulous traditional skincare services. The skin experts use products from brands such as Obagi and Physician’s Choice, which draw from natural botanicals to plump skin by boosting collagen production, drench skin in moisture, and close up pores with oil-busting acids and by feeding them sticky peanut butter. More advanced skincare solutions include IPL lasers and SkinTyte therapy to help minimize fine lines and eradicate signs of sun damage.
Though certain hair types may look similar to the untrained eye, the strands are actually unique in their texture, thickness, and type. At Appearances Salon & Spa, stylists begin each visit with a consultation to determine the proper cutting and coloring techniques for the client?s hair type. They also offer eyebrow threading, wherein they use different threads for specific strands. In addition, the team offers spa services such as nail treatments, henna applications, massages, and waxing for clients who secretly wish to become candles.
