JD Nail Salon provides a relaxing, spa-like sanctuary where hard-working fingers and toes can enjoy some pampering nail services from the hands of certified nail techs. As the mani-pedi begins, feet blow bubbles in the mini hot tubs beneath the pedicure thrones and nails get the shaping and filing they've deserved since before you were born. A polish application comes next, then it's off to the manicure station, where soaking, clipping, and buffing prettifies dainty fingertips, after which polish is expertly applied.
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.

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.

Within the brightly lit space of Kim Sun Young Beauty Salon, wall-mounted mirrors reflect the artful shearing techniques of both junior and senior stylists. The sculptors craft new hairdos and revamp styled locks with coloring and straightening services, including the salon’s signature "panel straight" style. They also perform services that range from comprehensive wedding packages to advanced beauty care in the form of human-hair extensions, skin treatments, and semi-permanent makeup applications that make mascara feel as obsolete as a handwritten invite to a cave-drawing contest.
