After seven years honing his skills in the general- and plastic-surgery divisions of Charity Hospital in New Orleans, Dr. Timothy Mountcastle returned to his native Virginia to devote himself full-time to body beautification as head of Mountcastle Plastic Surgery & Vein Institute, now a leading vein center of nearly 10 years. Dr. Mountcastle couples a keen eye for aesthetic detail with years of experience in varicose and spider vein treatment, including the use of lasers, radio-frequency ablation, minimally invasive microphlebectomy techniques, and ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy. Dr. Mountcastle also has extensive knowledge and practice in cosmetic and skin cancer surgery, as well as mole, lipoma, and cyst removals. A staff of top aesthetic nurses, physician assistants, and aestheticians help send facial wrinkles running with Botox and other facial treatments.
At DSI Aesthetics & Nail Academy, instructor-supervised students pamper clients with services customized to meet their needs. More than five facials help combat dry skin and signs of aging, and chemical peels reduce the appearance of sun damage, hyperpigmentation, and the words someone wrote in permanent marker on your forehead at a party eight years ago. The students are also equipped to perform microderm and ultrasonic facials.
The board-certified dermatologist Dr. Theodore Sebastien and his team of certified dermatology assistants and technicians rejuvenate weary neck toppers with chemical peels and microdermabrasion treatments. Like the restoration of ancient art or an upgrade of Mr. Potato Head features, the chemical peel's solution reveals a newer façade by removing the epidermis’s top layer. Treat sunspots, uneven skin tone, and upside-down frowns with the restorative session that promotes cell growth and can produce healthier-looking skin. The microdermabrasion treatment exfoliates the epidermis sans chemicals or lasers. Minimize the appearance of scarring, fine lines, and sun-damaged skin with the therapy's gentle resurfacing, done with microdermabrasion crystals and past-revealing tarot cards.

Although the owners of New Look Day Spa & Laser believe that natural skincare can do much to improve skin tone and texture?the center's nine facials include an herbal edition that comes in fruit, flower, and oxygen varieties?they also understand that high-tech solutions often trump the effectiveness of creams and serums. The cache of skincare equipment at New Look carries not only both crystal and diamond microdermabrasion systems, but also laser hair-removal and skin-rejuvenation systems from both elos and UltraPlus. The center's team also possesses an Image Pro II digital skin-analysis machine, which allows aestheticians to calibrate custom facials from Dermalogica products based on pore depth, pigment variation, and intensity of recent Medusa exposure.
