Dr. Timothy S. Mountcastle, medical director of Radiance Medspa Fairfax and chief of plastic surgery at Inova Loudoun Hospital, urges the Radiance Medspa staff to examine their clients? diet and lifestyle when evaluating their skincare needs. His team takes a big-picture approach to wellness and helps clients with long-lasting, youth-boosting treatments, including microdermabrasion, teeth whitening, massage, and Botox. Before appointments, patrons can unwind in a tranquility room where troubles melt away like a pat of butter on a piping-hot dragon tongue.
Althea Medspa is named for the althea flower, or hibiscus, which is well known for its beauty and healing properties. Inside cozy, private rooms, Althea's team upholds the transformative spirit of this flower when boosting clients’ beauty with professional laser services, cosmetic injections, and infrared therapy. A professional designer was hired to outfit Althea Medspa with a tranquil atmosphere, harnessing the calming practices of feng shui and a fountain to soothe visitors and vacationing flying fish.
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.
It's rare to find a salon devoted to something besides haircuts, but Anti Aging Facial Center is just that?a facial salon. Best known for its signature rejuvenating facial dubbed the Ultra anti-aging treatment, the facial encourages collagen production and wrinkle-smoothing over the course of seven phases. One phase incorporates "micro-mode," a tiny microcurrent that energizes facial tissue even better than bobbing for apples in a vat of coffee.?
The signature facial is only the beginning of the aestheticians' offerings, though. Other treatments cleanse and purify, revitalize skin with oxygen therapy, or turn back the clock with an infusion of vitamin C. Along the way, the team draws on products from top-of-the-line skincare brands such as MD Dermatics and Refinee.
Eschewing the idea of invasive procedures altogether, Fairfax Laser Like Lipo uses advanced aesthetic technology to target stubborn fat deposits that slowly respond to exercise and lifestyle changes. Dr. Thang Do oversees the center's dedicated technicians when he isn't providing chiropractic care. Their laser-like treatments can spot-reduce adipose tissue, help contour regions across the body, and improve skin tone by minimizing the appearance of cellulite plus they carry the added bonus of being able to evaporate sidewalk puddles. Fairfax Laser Like Lipo also offers detoxification programs and whole-body vibration sessions.
The technicians at Gkocosmetics & MedSpa don't need magic for their disappearing acts; they have an array of med spa services instead. What they make disappear depends on the treatment. Their microdermabrasions, peels, and oxygen facials help remove wrinkles and their body-sculpting treatments help remove stubborn pounds and cellulite. More traditional spa treatments such as waxing and massage are also available.
