When she's not attending continuing-education courses and international meetings to keep her skills up to date, medical director Dr. Nasreen Sheikh, uses what she's learned to helm NoVa Medical Skin Care. There, Dr. Sheikh and her team create customized aesthetic plans that combat skin issues ranging from acne and excess hair to wrinkles and sun spots. Aestheticians reach for M.D. Forte, SkinMedica, Revision, and Obagi products to brighten and smooth the skin during chemical peels, and call on advanced lasers to zap spider veins, resurface faces, and permanently destroy unwanted hairs and rogue daisies sprouting from any skin type. For flagging countenances, the office also erases fine lines with Botox, Restylane, and Juvederm injections.
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.
At first glance, Good Day Total Health Clinic seems more like an opulent spa than a wellness center. Past the rich marble and plush furnishings in the lobby, vividly painted treatment rooms are interspersed with a serene fish pond and murals depicting cherry trees ironically holding apples. The varied, welcoming decor reflects the multidisciplinary approach to health provided by the doctors, specialists, and technicians who practice here. The team offers state of the art treatments for both wellness and beauty, from chiropractic care and acupuncture to rejuvenating massages and Botox and filler treatments.
