Revitalizing appearances is only half the job at Faye Beauty Spa. The team ensures that every treatment doubles as a tension-alleviating retreat, sending clients home feeling rejuvenated and reenergized. Therapeutic massages accompany each facial and help visitors relax while the aestheticians use specialized products and technologies to restore the skin's youthful texture and radiance. Deep-cleaning facials gently uproot blackheads and ultrasonic systems help nutrient-rich serums sink deeper beneath the surface of the skin.
In addition to their full-body massages and hand and foot treatments, Faye Beauty Spa specializes in eyebrow tattoo treatments. Dedicated professionals take each client's facial structure into account when planning a design and then creating full, natural-looking brows.
At Nirvana Reflexology Spa, a team of certified reflexologists uses the ancient therapy to relieve ailments and reduce toxins. During reflexology treatments, pressure is applied to specific areas of the feet and hands that are believed to line up with many of the body's internal organs. The treatment, aside from inducing general feelings of relaxation and well-being, has been shown to positively impact everything from migraines and back pain to insomnia and anxiety. For additional soothing, the therapists also administer an herbal tea bath for the feet, since coffee can often leave toes jumpy, and they also work out tension in the neck and scalp, adjusting pressure to each client's comfort level.
Dr. Jennifer Miller believes that slimming down shouldn't require surgery. At Maryland Laser Fat Loss, she specializes in laser lipo, which uses LED light to spur fat cells to release their contents. The fat is then metabolized and eliminated by the body's natural processes. When paired with a healthy diet and exercise, these treatments can become even more effective at lessening circumferences. Shorter sessions also can be scheduled to specifically address the appearance of cellulite. Besides her signature technology, Dr. Miller also offers services such as nutritional counseling and detox programs.
Precision is key at Lumina Skin Care Center. Not only does its aesthetic technology require laser accuracy to zero in on specific treatment areas, but its aestheticians also reference a 14-zone facial map to ensure their services are appropriately customized. Each licensed aesthetician relies on steady hands and a shrewd mind to use cutting-edge technologies such as LED (light-emitting diode) and IPL (intense pulsed light) to clarify and restore youth to complexions. For more traditional facials, aestheticians use Obagi products with ingredients—antioxidants, hydroquinone, Retin-A, and tretinoin—that yield specific benefits.
The team at Bliss Reflexology blends natural and traditional holistic treatments to increase patients' circulation, strengthen their joints and muscles, and help them rehabilitate from injuries. During reflexology sessions, therapists apply pressure to the feet, hands, and ears in order to stimulate corresponding zones within the body, aiming to improve the health of the digestive, circulatory, and respiratory systems. Similarly, acupressure treatments help clients relax and boost their energy by applying physical pressure to trigger points along the body without resorting to flipping the bellybutton's emergency off switch.
Classic Swedish and deep-tissue massages are only the tip of the massage therapists? offerings at Rockville Massage. Therapists work with expectant mothers to ease their discomfort during special prenatal massages, and they focus on aches that come with aging during geriatric massages. Clients can also relax with cupping sessions, during which therapists use cups to create a vacuum on the skin; when moved slightly, the cups lift the muscles for massage-like benefits. When performed on faces, cupping can lower sinus pressure and diminish the appearance of fine lines and scar tissue.
