Red Rose Beauty Center's clients can rest easy knowing that they're in the hands of a doctor who has treated patients for more than 30 years, including time spent in the high-stress arenas of internal and emergency medicine. He started off at the prestigious Cleveland Clinic in Ohio, and in 1993, he moved to the Washington DC area, where he eventually started working in the medical aesthetics field. "This field offers [a] more relaxed and different approach to patient care," he says. "These are 100% optional/elective procedures."
At his med spa, he injects Botox and Juv?derm into faces to help smooth wrinkles and plump up fine lines. He also uses Latisse to help patients have fuller, darker eyelashes without coating them in mud.
Massage Angeltips' unassuming strip mall location belies the luxurious treatments and surroundings that await customers within. Treatment rooms brandish deep purple walls and soft rose petals line the pillows where clients relax as a therapist administers a soothing Swedish massage or another style of massage chosen to soothe a particular need or ailment. Acupressure massage, for example, can deliver the energy-balancing benefits of acupuncture without the use of needles or tranquilizer darts. Hot stone massages, meanwhile, utilize warm basalt stones, which are placed at strategic points along the client's back in order to melt tension and encourage the release of toxins. Other available treatments include deep-tissue massage, sports massage, prenatal massage, and cupping, along with body scrubs and masks than help to soften and moisturize the skin.
The saunas at The Hot Spot are no ordinary steam rooms. Instead of using water poured over hot rocks, these saunas use far infrared light, which penetrates the skin's surface without cloying heat. This helps visitors sweat out a higher percentage of toxins than with typical saunas, increasing the therapeutic benefit, with a deeper, more voluminous swear. One hour in the sauna helps the body detoxify at the cellular level, burning calories, improving the appearance of cellulite, and boosting the immune and cardiovascular systems. But despite the many benefits, these saunas are just as relaxing as the traditional kind?clients relax while listening to music, reading a magazine, or assigning names to each of the ceiling tiles.
