Within Aesthetic Plastic Surgery's Norfolk location, The Downtown Spa & Laser Center pairs the results-oriented approach of a medical facility with the relaxing amenities of a spa. Flickering candles gently illuminate the treatment rooms, where a soundtrack of natural harmonies surrounds patients with the soothing noise of rain falling or a park ranger learning to read. In the chambers, specialists wield laser-emitting devices designed to combat the appearance of unwanted hairs, spider veins, and wrinkles. With at least one aesthetician always on site, the center's staff also uses medical-grade skincare treatments to do everything from calming acne outbreaks to exfoliating dead skin cells.
The experienced aestheticians at Hague Medi-Spa wield quality products such as Obagi, Vivité, and SkinCeuticals to perform rejuvenating facial treatments overseen by in-house cosmetic surgeons. The skin savants precede facials with a skin analysis to customize the pampering to each client's skin type and specific concerns. In the 30-minute express facial, face custodians remove dirt and debris from pores and slough away extraneous skin cells. A steam treatment and gentle massage soothe weary visages, and a mask and moisturizer hydrate flesh dried out by unusually droll coworkers. The 60-minute Hague Signature facial also encompasses Dermaplane exfoliation. In this virtually painless, noninvasive treatment, skin-savvy technicians scrape the face with a surgical-grade blade while avoiding sensitive areas. The procedure produces smoother, clearer skin while depriving facial follicles of their fuzzy tenants.
Virginia Eye Consultants has been championing clear vision since 1963 and today tweaks imperfect peepers with the help of high-tech tools and a skilled staff. To determine candidacy for the Lasik procedure, each prospective patient undergoes a consultation, which includes initial measurements, a video about the procedure, and a meeting with one of the practice's seven doctors. In the Lasik procedure, a doctor painlessly creates a small flap in the cornea with the WaveLight FS200 laser, then reshapes the cornea using cool ultraviolet light. When all vision problems have been corrected, the flap is put back into place and quickly heals on its own, much like a lizard's tail or a movie star's ego. The entire procedure takes about 15 minutes, and vision should notably improve within two hours. Some patients experience discomfort for the first day but it typically is mild.

Board-certified in interventional radiology and vascular interpretation, (RPVI), Christopher Dobzyniak, MD and Phillip Luebbert, MD specialize in image-guided procedures to help diagnose and treat venous disease. At Total Vein Concepts, an endovascular specialist consults with each new client and uses a diagnostic ultrasound to determine whether veins present a cosmetic or medical concern. After the consultation, a comprehensive treatment plan is created using minimally invasive techniques to achieve the patient’s goals. The clinic specializes in traditional and ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy, as well as phlebectomies, during which they remove a small cluster of varicose veins through tiny incisions. Most procedures incur little downtime, though some require the use of local anesthesia.
