Since graduating from Dhaka Medical College Hospital in 1972, board-certified doctor Shaukat Jahan has been honing her skills practicing medicine—with a focus on her specialty, gynecology. Certified and trained in both Britain and the U.S., Dr. Jahan is well-equipped to help her patients. In her well-appointed offices, she can assist with prenatal care and deliver newborns as safely as a stork equipped with a seatbelt and airbag. She also provides family-planning services and helms laser surgeries. For international patients’ convenience, Dr. Jahan can speak in Bengali, Hindi, Persian, Spanish, and Urdu during appointments.
The physicians and certified medical practitioners at Physicians' Laser Center educate their patients on the gospel of lasers with a broad menu of cosmetic laser services. Under the supervision of physicians, the practitioners calibrate FDA-approved lasers to each patient's hair color and skin type. They bend the beams to zap body hair, smooth wrinkles, heal scars, kill nail fungus, fade tattoos, and blind a passing cyclops. Physicians' Laser Center distributes its ace doctors and versatile lasers among five locations in the DC area.
At Berman Cosmetic Surgery, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Berman trims patients' stubborn fat deposits that have proven impervious to exercise and dieting. Wielding the SmartLipo TriPlex laser lipolysis apparatus, Dr. David Berman sculpts lower abdomens, love handles, back bra lines, necks, and marble busts of Alexander Hamilton with a laser fiber, simultaneously bursting fat cells and kick-starting collagen production. Because the treatment is minimally invasive, patients generally experience very little pain, scarring, bruising, or swelling and can often return to work at the penny-polishing factory the next day. The procedure also gently heats the underside of the skin, helping to tighten the skin and reduce the appearance of loose folds. As a result, SmartLipo can improve the look of areas already treated by liposuction or flattened between the pages of War and Peace. Depending on the chosen body area, the procedure can last 30 minutes to two hours.

Aria MediSpa seems to be brimming with medical specialists), be they plastic surgeons, medical aestheticians, or massage therapists. These experts meander about the facility's oasis-like setting??marked by a glossy floor and avant-garde lamps. A curved, wooden reception desk anchors the lobby, where guests check in with manager Anomi and recline on plush, ivory loveseats. Elsewhere, private rooms host aesthetic treatments such as chemical peels, laser therapies, and injectables.

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.

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.
