"Facial surgery is much like making up a bed nicely," says Dr. Daria Hamrah on his website. "If the mattress is lumpy, there isn?t much point in spreading a nice bedcover over it (that is, if the bones and muscles are problematic, fixing the skin doesn?t help much)."
Dr. Hamrah, who is certified by the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery, and a licensed facial cosmetic surgeon, lets this philosophy guide him, focusing on both the face's surface and, more importantly, on the underlying structure that supports it as he reshapes noses, lifts brows, adds lip implants, or attaches third eyes. He further beautifies faces with oral surgical procedures and med-spa treatments, all performed within an office that evokes the tranquility of a spa with its warm brown walls and flower-lined hallways while still maintaining a hospital-quality operating room.
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.

Additionally, Dr. Cohen's personal line of skincare products and tips from his personally penned books help maintain newly spruced mugs.
At Hot Yoga Bikram Tysons, instructors foster a noncompetitive environment where students can pursue their own yogic goals in either a 2,000- or a 600-square-foot practice space heated up to 105 degrees with 40% humidity. A sanitizing system continuously refreshes the air while students follow their instructors through two breathing exercises and 26 standing, seated, and reclining poses, which methodically stretch and strengthen muscle groups across the entire body. As the students sink into each pose, the instructors walk about the room, gently correcting postures by offering hands-on adjustments, verbal guidance, or Pictionary interpretations of each pose. Although the studio's Flotex antibacterial flooring helps to keep attendees microbe-free during class, onsite shower facilities allow guests to rinse off any sweaty chakras afterward.
