As a published author and board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Barry Cohen spreads aesthetic knowledge and prowess among patients at his state-of-the-art offices. Dr. Cohen and his staff aim to treat each client like family during surgical and nonsurgical treatments, all of which include complimentary consultations. These sessions may also make use of the office's preoperative computer imaging—software designed to show patients what can and cannot be achieved with surgery or masking tape. The office's adjoining med spa provides a tranquil retreat for rejuvenating waning complexions with dermal fillers, chemical peels, and laser treatments. Additionally, Dr. Cohen's personal line of skincare products and tips from his personally penned books help maintain newly spruced mugs.
Shady Grove Laser Aesthetic Center's experienced doctor Steve Behram leads a team that helps skin of all tones look its smoothest and tightest. Laser hair-removal treatments aim to banish unwanted fuzz and natural SPF protection using the handheld CoolGlide laser system. Free up space on lower arms for distraction-free slap-bracelet modeling, or neatly define eyebrow territories. A post-procedure topical treatment relieves most irritation caused by the lasers. Shady Grove recommends five to eight laser treatments on most areas for the best results.
"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.
Even though he's a trained cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Rassael knows that not every beauty concern requires going under the knife. That's why he and his team at Millennium Medical offer laser treatments, beauty injections, and noninvasive body contouring in addition to surgical procedures such as lifts, tucks, and traditional liposuction. From lasers that diminish leg veins and unwanted hair to Lipo-Light devices designed to slim down trouble spots, the clinic's state-of-the-art facilities feature a range of noninvasive equipment to rejuvenate complexions.
