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.
Helmed by skin expert Dr. David Charles, Ageless Advantages' staff rejuvenates skin with laser treatments, microdermabrasions, peels, and injectables. In addition to higher-tech solutions designed to make shaving or makeup unnecessary for anything besides advanced pet grooming, the team combats a variety of skin woes with BellaDerm products. The tonics and salves draw on natural, medical-grade emollients that aim beyond the surface all the way to cellular health.
Clients can visit BlueInGreen for an EKG or vaccination, or even to treat a common cold. Dr. Poochikian, an internal-medicine specialist, oversees the health clinic, but he also puts his scientific knowledge to work with a slew of aesthetic services.

The crew also performs conventional facials and anti-aging treatments and crafts custom weight-management programs. BlueInGreen also combines its pursuits of heath and beauty via Yin yoga classes, which use slow poses to build body awareness and empathy for statues.
People might not think of surgery as a creative field, but Dr. Ravi Dahiya disagrees. In fact, it?s the creative challenges of cosmetic and reconstructive surgery that the board-certified doctor loves so much about his job. Inside his practice at Potomac Facial Plastic Surgery, he applies this problem-solving spirit to the task of making clients look years younger, sometimes recommending face-lifts or eyebrow lifts, and sometimes injections of Radiesse or Juv?derm. He also restores youth by removing dead skin cells via microdermabrasion or chemical peels by Glytone. Dr. Dahiya fills bald spots with hair transplants or makes the whole body essentially one giant bald spot with laser hair-removal treatments.
