At Avi Day Spa, fitness experts, facialists, and massage therapists join forces to soothe clients with treatments based on Ayurveda––an ancient healing science that aims to bring body, mind, and spirit back into balance. Fifteen different styles of massage, including shiatsu, ashiatsu, and Swedish, help alleviate aches and clear mental fog. Body treatments can include hydrating essential-oil wraps or scrubs made from 40% honey, which helps make the body more receptive to topical oils and herbs and irresistible to cartoon bears. After rejuvenating facials or microdermabrasion, aestheticians also impart long-lasting allure with permanent-makeup services or grace limbs with continual smoothness courtesy of laser hair removal, waxing, or electrolysis.

At Rostami Oculo-Facial Plastic Consultants, Dr. Soheila Rostami oversees a small, dedicated team of doctors and aestheticians as they enhance clients’ natural beauty with skincare and medical cosmetic treatments. The team can sculpt drooping eyelids or revitalize complexions with products that include Obagi skincare products and the distilled tears of Helen of Troy. A fleet of versatile lasers does everything from erasing unwanted veins and fine lines to zapping hair at the root. Each treatment takes place in a private room with golden-sponged walls and flowers.
Dermal Science International (DSI) MedSpa's professional technicians pamper clients with services customized to meet their needs. More than five facials help combat dry skin and signs of aging, and chemical peels—including a TCA orange peel—reduce the appearance of sun damage, hyperpigmentation, and the words someone wrote in permanent marker on your forehead at a party eight years ago. DSI MedSpa’s staff is also equipped to perform microderm and ultrasonic facials.
The board-certified dermatologist Dr. Theodore Sebastien and his team of certified dermatology assistants and technicians rejuvenate weary neck toppers with chemical peels and microdermabrasion treatments. Like the restoration of ancient art or an upgrade of Mr. Potato Head features, the chemical peel's solution reveals a newer façade by removing the epidermis’s top layer. Treat sunspots, uneven skin tone, and upside-down frowns with the restorative session that promotes cell growth and can produce healthier-looking skin. The microdermabrasion treatment exfoliates the epidermis sans chemicals or lasers. Minimize the appearance of scarring, fine lines, and sun-damaged skin with the therapy's gentle resurfacing, done with microdermabrasion crystals and past-revealing tarot cards.
The destination for those with aesthetic goals big and small, Potomac Skin Care is a welcoming space where med-spa technologies seem to rewind time. Zerona lasers make silhouettes more svelte, smoothing away cellulite as it shines on the skin. Botox and Obagi Blue Peel treatments help erase fine lines and lend more even complexions. These and other treatments are conducted with care after a consultation, during which the technician and client check out future results via time machine.
