At LaBella MediSpa, owner and registered nurse Helene Taylor and board-certified plastic surgeon Guy Cappuccino gently fell follicles with help from the Lumenis LightSheer and Palomar YAG lasers. First, a routine questionnaire and horoscope reading are administered to determine overall health and rate of hair growth in new patients. Dr. Cappuccino or Nurse Taylor then select the laser most suited to each patient’s unique skin type, tone, and dermal demands, adjusting the beam's intensity for maximum complexion protection. Aiming photon pulses at burrowing bristle, she permanently pulverizes up to 90 percent of follicle fortifications and tricks stubble into surrender with targeted heat and the promise that they’ll be granted asylum in Belgium.

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.

Reflexology: Tracking Energy from Head to Toe Though reflexology shares much in common with acupuncture, it has its own unique properties and origins. Read on to learn more about the practice. In the early 20th century, you might have been able to identify patients coming from a reflexology appointment by the clothespins on their fingertips. Today?s reflexologists generally carry out their treatments by hand in a wellness clinic or a massage studio, but the principle remains the same: apply pressure to specific points on the hands, feet, or ears, prompting responses in organs throughout the body. Similar to acupuncture and acupressure, the practice posits that energy pathways run throughout the body. Reflexology?s system, however, is a bit simpler than Chinese medicine?s complex map of meridians. Envision vertical lines running from each toe up through the leg, joining lines running from each finger up the arm toward the neck and coming together in the head, and you have the body divided into 10 attractively slimming reflexology zones. Within each zone on the palm or?most common in reflexology sessions today?the sole, certain pressure points are thought to correspond to organs, joints, or other tissues elsewhere in the same zone. Dr. William Fitzgerald?originator of the clothespin technique?began practicing what he called ?zone therapy? in 1915. While research has yet to find a concrete link between modern medical thought and the millennia-old idea of imperceptible bodily energy, that doesn't mean reflexology can't be relaxing. Patients can expect the benefits of a treatment to include at least those of a good foot massage: increased circulation, relieved muscle tension, and decreased stress and susceptibility to tickle attacks. Even early proponents of the technique accepted that results might vary from person to person. Writing in 1928, physician Bernard Lust was content with claiming that ?the adoption of the method is attended with absolutely no danger or disagreeable results, and may be the means of lengthening short lives and making good health catching.?

Center for Vein Restoration has recruited a staff of highly accredited surgeons and licensed medical staffers across 20 locations in Maryland, Washington, DC, and Northern Virginia, all focused on offering minimally invasive, same-day outpatient clinical solutions that target varicose veins and spider veins. Board-certified doctors on staff are trained to treat patients who suffer from leg pain and other symptoms of varicose veins. While spider veins?which are typically a cosmetic blight?may be treated with sclerotherapy, varicose veins often require a more involved treatment, such as laser ablation?an outpatient surgical procedure. Aiming to make treatments as minimally invasive as possible, the doctors on staff can also prescribe lifestyle changes for less serious cases, which may include following exercise and nutrition plans or wearing compression stockings.
