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.
Before her passion for aesthetics brought her to the United States, England native Nicola Cattle, who trained in the United Kingdom, France, and Switzerland, worked with a dermatologist and plastic surgeon in London. There she learned how to treat patients suffering from severe acne and how to combine aesthetic treatments with dermatological treatments.
Now, at Nicola of London Body & Skin Care, she continues this work alongside her international team of licensed aestheticians. They transform clients using a blend of European and American beauty techniques potent enough to erase fine age lines from even the most grizzled sea captain.
They customize treatments to each client?s skin type, sometimes veering from their extensive menu of spa services. The beauty experts perform European and green-tea facials, microdermabrasions, five PCA peels, ultrasound and red-light skin therapy, and a range of relaxation massages. They also perform Lymphobiology treatments?a process that relies on an enzyme peel, glycolic peel, or exfoliating grains used in tandem with steam and lymphatic drainage.
At McLean Laser Center, Vahideh Tajallaie stops the growth of hair follicles with multiple-wavelength GentleMax lasers that are effective on all skin types. She has performed more than 11,500 laser hair-removal treatments last nine years, smoothing bodies from head to toe. Beyond lasers, the staffers specialize in classic spa treatments such as diamond microdermabrasion and facials using G.M. Collin skincare formulas, each of which help to forge a tighter, smoother, and more toned appearance. Visitors to the practice can also opt for skin-tightening and skin-rejuvenation treatments, spider vein removal, or massage therapy.
The beautification experts at Prima Hair & Day Spa keep their clients' appearances in tiptop shape via salon, spa, and clinical skincare services. In addition to designing haircuts and painting in highlights, stylists can apply relaxers to type-A strands and craft up-dos for special occasions. During a microdermabrasion treatment, a specialist exfoliates skin with a diamond-tipped wand, sloughing away the top layer of cells most susceptible to sunlight, aging, and holiday cheek pinches. Below-the-neck pampering treatments include waxing, massage, and laser hair removal for lasting smoothness.
Supervised by a trio of doctors, Elysee 360 Concierge Med-Spa specializes in beautifying clients with FDA-approved techniques and treatments. The licensed staff includes medical aestheticians, laser specialists, makeup artists, and massage therapists well-versed in their respective service offerings. Although the team performs complimentary consultations for most skin services, patients can speak to a doctor for an additional fee.
For the past 25 years, Dr. Seddigheh Feisee has cleared up skin and minimized the signs of aging with an array of noninvasive treatments. Employing safe laser light, Dr. Feisee beams away hair, acne scars, and spider veins with minimal discomfort. Quick injections of Botox or Dysport can smooth out crow's-feet, smile lines, and forehead creases more effectively than spackling with silly putty.
