Dr. Lawrence J. Markovitz, a board-certified thoracic and cardiovascular surgeon who has earned The Washingtonian magazine's Top Doctor of 2010 award, works at Virginia Vein Care with a crew of other talented medical professionals.
He works alongside a registered nurse and trained ultrasound technicians as they diagnosis varicose, spider, and other venous conditions. An advanced ultrasound examination reveals these issues before the doctors customize a treatment plan. Twisted and bulging varicose veins quickly unknot during the VNUS Closure procedure, which collapses vessels with radio frequency, and spider veins break down before the powers of traditional sclerotherapy or ultrasound-guided foam sclerotherapy. VeinGogh Thermolysis uses microbursts of energy to remove hair-thin veins on the face and body that have begun to distract from your beautiful eyes or ability to hold an entire bagel in your mouth.
Bella Luna Day Spa attends to multiple layers of relaxation with an extensive menu offering options ranging from facials, massages, and nailcare services to all-inclusive spa packages.

The staff includes two licensed aestheticians with more than 25 years of combined experience as well as a licensed massage therapist who specializes in deep-tissue and neuromuscular techniques.
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.

Dr. Anoush R. Sarraf and the staff at Aphrodite Advanced Esthetic & Skin Care resurface and reshape the body using laser technology. With the many settings of the Candela GentleMax workstation, they tackle cosmetic complaints such as spider veins, hyperpigmentation, and unwanted body hair. Brandishing the CO2 fractional laser, they deploy a fleet of microbeams to stimulate epidermal renewal. A gallery of before-and-after photos recounts the team's cosmetic successes better than the clinic's resident balladeer.
