Virginia Eye Consultants has been home to ophthalmic specialists since its 1963 founding by Dr. John W. Dickerson. Over time, the practice has grown to a staff of seven MDs, each board certified in their medical or surgical area of expertise. Current president Dr. John Sheppard holds extensive knowledge on the topics of corneal transplants and clinical research.
Across the nation, Sona MedSpa's nurses beautify a range of skin types with the gentle touch of Alma and Cynosure lasers. Sun damage, moon damage, unwanted hair, and spider veins dissolve under the beams of these cosmetic lasers, which can also resurface complexions. They've got Botox and dermal fillers at their disposal, too, and they can even whiten teeth.
All this med-spa magic comes at the hands of service providers whom Sona only certifies after special training, an exam, and a 40-hour window of supervision. It's a regimen that, along with top-shelf technology and a high concern for laser safety, shows why Sona's been successful since its beginnings 15 years ago.
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.
When it comes to anti-aging spa services, Euro-Med Spa Boutique relies on its trained medical professionals. The staff uses laser technology to remove unwanted hair and treat sun spots and rosacea. The staff uses Harmony/Soprano XL Pain Free technology, which is diode-based, to improve skin texture and correct imperfections brought on by age and sun exposure. They offer the Clear Lift or Pixel Skin Rejuvenation to lessen age spots, tighten skin, and repair acne scarring. Additionally, they also provide medical HCG weight loss and teeth whitening.
