The physicians and certified medical practitioners at Physicians' Laser Center educate their patients on the gospel of lasers with a broad menu of cosmetic laser services. Under the supervision of physicians, the practitioners calibrate FDA-approved lasers to each patient's hair color and skin type. They bend the beams to zap body hair, smooth wrinkles, heal scars, kill nail fungus, fade tattoos, and blind a passing cyclops. Physicians' Laser Center distributes its ace doctors and versatile lasers among five locations in the DC area.
Sugaring Studio Inc. prefers a sweet method of hair removal: sugar. Technicians blend sugar with natural ingredients such as water and lemon juice to create a honey-like paste, which removes unwanted fuzz like traditional wax. But, unlike chemical formulations, the paste may reduce skin irritation, minimize ingrown hairs, and let recipients imagine their knees are cupcakes. When they aren't smoothing bodies with sugaring services, the studio's beauty experts can treat hands and feet to mani-pedis with traditional or gel polish.
The licensed, Thai classically trained massage therapists at Sawatdee Thai Yoga and Bodywork practice a form of Thai massage that was originally designed exclusively for the King of Siam. At this massage and spa studio in Vienna, clients come in for Lanna Tradition Thai bodywork, which involves less participation than traditional Thai massage, as well as hot oil and hot stone massages. Also offering spa mani-pedis, facials, and waxing treatments, Sawatdee Thai Yoga and Bodywork is a calming place to come and de-stress.
