The skilled staff of stylists and aestheticians at George Bacchus inject zest into lackluster carnal shells, boosting appearances from faces to follicles. Hopeful hair havers can seek mane taming with a stylist, who will shampoo strands and trim tresses before blow-drying them sleek and arranging locks into comely coifs ($70 value). A keratin treatment ($300 value) sends a smoothing platoon deep into cuticles, reducing frizz and curl and rendering hair as silky and glossy as a doll's pupil for up to five months. This treatment smoothes all types of hair, including color-treated and chemically processed tresses, allocating time previously spent styling to new hobbies, such as competitive DJing and lawn-dart removal.
The destination for those with aesthetic goals big and small, Potomac Skin Care is a welcoming space where med-spa technologies seem to rewind time. Zerona lasers make silhouettes more svelte, smoothing away cellulite as it shines on the skin. Botox and Obagi Blue Peel treatments help erase fine lines and lend more even complexions. These and other treatments are conducted with care after a consultation, during which the technician and client check out future results via time machine.
At Avi Day Spa, fitness experts, facialists, and massage therapists join forces to soothe clients with treatments based on Ayurveda––an ancient healing science that aims to bring body, mind, and spirit back into balance. Fifteen different styles of massage, including shiatsu, ashiatsu, and Swedish, help alleviate aches and clear mental fog. Body treatments can include hydrating essential-oil wraps or scrubs made from 40% honey, which helps make the body more receptive to topical oils and herbs and irresistible to cartoon bears. After rejuvenating facials or microdermabrasion, aestheticians also impart long-lasting allure with permanent-makeup services or grace limbs with continual smoothness courtesy of laser hair removal, waxing, or electrolysis.
