Finder’s Keepers Body Piercing focuses on performing high-quality body modification. Its piercers are licensed through the Virginia Department of Professional and Occupational Regulation, and they use exclusively high-grade, biocompatible, implant-grade jewelry. They focus on proper sterilization and technique so intensively that they even offer an apprenticeship program, licensed by the Commonwealth of Virginia. Piercers Jessi, Jessica, Jordan, Kimberly, and Sheena keep portfolios online so that potential piercees can preview their work. In addition to using dermal anchors and piercing popular spots like the ear cartilage, navel, and tongue, the experts at Finder’s Keepers can also pierce below the belt.

The owners take pride in their spacious and clean studio space, as it gives their artists and clients freedom to safely explore exactly what they want.

The office also offers massage from a licensed therapist, exercise instruction, Lipo-Light treatments, and better lifestyle guidance than a Magic 8-Ball inside a fortune cookie.
Virginia Eye Consultants has been championing clear vision since 1963 and today tweaks imperfect peepers with the help of high-tech tools and a skilled staff. To determine candidacy for the Lasik procedure, each prospective patient undergoes a consultation, which includes initial measurements, a video about the procedure, and a meeting with one of the practice's seven doctors. In the Lasik procedure, a doctor painlessly creates a small flap in the cornea with the WaveLight FS200 laser, then reshapes the cornea using cool ultraviolet light. When all vision problems have been corrected, the flap is put back into place and quickly heals on its own, much like a lizard's tail or a movie star's ego. The entire procedure takes about 15 minutes, and vision should notably improve within two hours. Some patients experience discomfort for the first day but it typically is mild.
