Dr. Shannon Ginnan has spent the past decade honing his understanding of aesthetic and laser medicine, and he was even an educator for Palomar and Cynosure technologies. Now he operates Medalase Aesthetic Centers, which?was named Northern Virginia Magazine's best med spa in 2014.
As the name suggests, Dr. Ginnan's clinic is home to a slew of laser treatments, from fractional skin resurfacing to photo rejuvenation to laser hair removal. He and his team also use lasers to contour bodies during laser-liposuction treatments or rely on a vibrating cannula to do the job during Tickle Lipo procedures. Other popular treatments include dermal fillers and Botox injections, which make clients look young enough to join a high school sports team.
From face to body, the team at Astoria Laser Clinic & Med Spa can help clients reach their aesthetic goals. Microdermabrasion machines and clinical-grade serums restore brightness to tired complexions, and fillers rejuvenate aging skin. Below the neck, CoolSculpting treatments help bodies look their fittest and smoothest, and state-of-the-art lasers clear feet of fungus and blast away unflattering shoes. All the prettifying services are supervised by medical director Dr. Jules A. Feledy Jr., a plastic surgeon whose wealth of experience makes almost any beauty goal achievable.
Northern Virginia Wellness Center helps patients refurbish dull looks with a full host of non-invasive cosmetic treatments. Here, lasers zap unwanted hair, spider veins, and tattoos, and facial injections and non-ablative skin-tightening treatments keep faces smooth and bright. Working in conjunction with the MediSun team, the center's clinicians draw upon decades of experience when administering high-tech treatments such as skin-restoring IPL photofacials.
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.
Doctor of Chiropractic Singh works hard to realign spines and relieve back and neck pain through combinations of chiropractic treatments. He manually adjusts spines or entrusts his power to a DRX9000 spinal-decompression system, which stretches and relaxes back while patients recline on the machine?s padded treatment table. Nine massage modalities, from deep-tissue stroke work to the use of hot stones, also aim to wipe away aches and tension from bodies.
