A licensed master aesthetician with 10 years of skin-spiffing experience, Mary Farmer helps fatigued dermises flout aging’s emblems with spa treatments. Rebuff clingy skin cells with the microdermabrasion facial, which gently strips visages of their outermost dermal layer with a non-invasive spray of fine crystals that infuses skin with the peachy glow of health, as opposed to the mauve glow of space radiation.

Dominion Dentistry’s Dr. Richard Sweeney involves patients in every step of the treatment-planning process and thoroughly explains all available options. Checkups begin with a set of four bite-wing x-rays that illuminate any existing or potential issues such as periodontal defects or cavities brought on from gargling maple syrup. Patients then alight in their personal exam room for a thorough cleaning while relaxing by watching TV, viewing videos stored on a personal iPod, or listening to the surround-sound music system. Once a dental hygienist has swept oral cobblestones clear of plaque films and tartar deposits, Dr. Sweeney examines freshened mouths for evidence of decay or disease and checks under tongues for misplaced wads of gums.
The medical technicians at Eastern Virginia Medical Spa know that losing weight is tricky, and keeping it off is even trickier. That's why they base their medically certified weight loss programs and treatments around equal parts science and support.

In addition to helping patients lose weight, they also maintain appearances with laser hair removal sessions and brighten smiles with teeth whitening treatments powered by UV light.
Today’s side deal feeds protein-deficient hair a healthy dose of sheen: for $99, you get a Brazilian keratin smoothing consultation and treatment at Pacific Sun Salon in Chesapeake (up to a $300 value, based on length and hair texture). You must call ahead to schedule a consultation; after that, you will schedule your actual treatment time.
A Brazilian keratin smoothing treatment promises to leave your locks smooth, straight, and free of frizz for up to four months. During the course of your appointment, your hair will be doused with a protein- and nutrient-rich solution and dried before the strands are straightened and the serum is locked in through a professional flat-ironing. Unlike chemical relaxers that can damage delicate tresses, the keratin treatment strengthens your hair strands by pumping them up with a powerful protein, which leaves head threads straight and soft with unparalleled manageability and a light-reflecting luster. The treatment is safe for previously processed or chemically treated hair, and results typically last up to four months, making it ideal for those looking to make a splash this upcoming beach-movie season.
