After seven years honing his skills in the general- and plastic-surgery divisions of Charity Hospital in New Orleans, Dr. Timothy Mountcastle returned to his native Virginia to devote himself full-time to body beautification as head of Mountcastle Plastic Surgery & Vein Institute, now a leading vein center of nearly 10 years. Dr. Mountcastle couples a keen eye for aesthetic detail with years of experience in varicose and spider vein treatment, including the use of lasers, radio-frequency ablation, minimally invasive microphlebectomy techniques, and ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy. Dr. Mountcastle also has extensive knowledge and practice in cosmetic and skin cancer surgery, as well as mole, lipoma, and cyst removals. A staff of top aesthetic nurses, physician assistants, and aestheticians help send facial wrinkles running with Botox and other facial treatments.
Certified surgeon Dr. Anouche M. Roberts of Liquid Facelift Centers combines surgical expertise with a passion for aesthetic medicine. Her expert knowledge of the face aids her as she wards off signs of aging with liquid facelifts and laser treatments using a laser new to the industry. A restrained aesthetic style, attention to detail, and knack for all things artistic round out Dr. Roberts’ qualifications and explain her affinity for cross-stitching all of her patients’ post-op prescriptions rather than writing them. Having performed more than 5,000 injectable procedures using the micro-cannula injection technique, Dr. Roberts has mastered performing pain-free, precise injections with little to no bruising.
Tthe licensed massage therapists knead achy muscles with a range of diverse massage modalities that ease aches associated with sports, everyday stress, or pregnancy. Clients can soothe the senses and nurture holistic wellness by adding aromatherapy to certain treatments, and eastern-inspired refloxology and acupressure are also available for enhanced well-being.
Meanwhile, A Refined Touch's nutrition response testing uses responses from acupressure points to help identify problem areas related to dietary insufficiencies. Then, with the help of nutrient-rich supplements derived from plants, clients can tweak their own diet to make it more healthy.
Madame et Monsieur's non-invasive, FDA-approved ElectroSlim technology helps clients get buff. Electrodes attached to the target area deliver electronic pulses that stimulate more than 1,000 muscle contractions in a single one-hour session. The soothing procedure feels like a deep-tissue massage, but delivers the muscle-building results of a serious sweat session. ElectroSlim can tone specific areas that normal exercise doesn't reach as well as burning away excess amounts of fat, redefining the client's overall body shape.
Rows upon rows of carefully cultivated vineyards cover Loudoun County, the area of northern Virginia where Leesburg is located. The resort calls itself "the front porch of DC's wine country” for a reason: more than 25 wineries are scattered throughout the area, and nearly all of them lie within a half-hour drive. Leesburg itself looks like something out of a Norman Rockwell print. Its charming streets are lined with quaint 19th-century buildings, antique stores, and brick-front homes. It's less than an hour's drive from the fine dining, historical monuments, and marathon filibusters of the nation's capital.
