When she's not attending continuing-education courses and international meetings to keep her skills up to date, medical director Dr. Nasreen Sheikh, uses what she's learned to helm NoVa Medical Skin Care. There, Dr. Sheikh and her team create customized aesthetic plans that combat skin issues ranging from acne and excess hair to wrinkles and sun spots. Aestheticians reach for M.D. Forte, SkinMedica, Revision, and Obagi products to brighten and smooth the skin during chemical peels, and call on advanced lasers to zap spider veins, resurface faces, and permanently destroy unwanted hairs and rogue daisies sprouting from any skin type. For flagging countenances, the office also erases fine lines with Botox, Restylane, and Juvederm injections.

JD Nail Salon provides a relaxing, spa-like sanctuary where hard-working fingers and toes can enjoy some pampering nail services from the hands of certified nail techs. As the mani-pedi begins, feet blow bubbles in the mini hot tubs beneath the pedicure thrones and nails get the shaping and filing they've deserved since before you were born. A polish application comes next, then it's off to the manicure station, where soaking, clipping, and buffing prettifies dainty fingertips, after which polish is expertly applied.
The stylists and relaxation experts at Nouvelle Salon keep themselves at the forefront of the beauty industry, offering the latest hair-, nail-, and skincare trends, including Shellac gel manicures and jelly pedicures. Classic accents, such as a crystal chandelier, elegant wall sconces, and tall white columns, evoke the feeling of a European retreat or Cecil B. DeMille storage space, swathing guests in timeless luxury made all the more impactful by modern touches, such as white leather salon chairs.
