The mission: physical transformation. At Solaris Laser & Skin Care, the staff performs a variety of bodily upgrades within calm and welcoming confines, and their repertoire hews to both the technological and the manual. Of course there's laser hair removal, performed via the Cynosure Vectus laser, a specialized piece of equipment that has a melanin reader to accommodate many different types of skin pigments. On the manual side of things are massages, treatments doled out deliberately in order to take on physical complaints, such as tight muscles, and emotional complaints such as stress. Solaris' service menu also features Physiodermie facials, permanent makeup, and body wraps intended to help clients slim down and perhaps fit into a favorite dress or trendy lobster bib.
Armed with Parisian and American beauty training, aesthetician Soraya Nouralian knows how to help suppress the signs of aging. The skin expert calls on both laser technology and Austrian botanicals to fight facial issues from every angle. At MyGentleLase, her beautification haven, clients can attend a no-cost initial consultation to determine which services are best for their skin type, beauty needs, and childhood phobias of being shrunk. Among clients? options are laser hair removal, skin-tightening treatments, and facials and peels that call on products from the Vienna-based Dr. Temt skincare line.
The physicians and certified medical practitioners at Physicians' Laser Center educate their patients on the gospel of lasers with a broad menu of cosmetic laser services. Under the supervision of physicians, the practitioners calibrate FDA-approved lasers to each patient's hair color and skin type. They bend the beams to zap body hair, smooth wrinkles, heal scars, kill nail fungus, fade tattoos, and blind a passing cyclops. Physicians' Laser Center distributes its ace doctors and versatile lasers among five locations in the DC area.
Sugaring Studio Inc. prefers a sweet method of hair removal: sugar. Technicians blend sugar with natural ingredients such as water and lemon juice to create a honey-like paste, which removes unwanted fuzz like traditional wax. But, unlike chemical formulations, the paste may reduce skin irritation, minimize ingrown hairs, and let recipients imagine their knees are cupcakes. When they aren't smoothing bodies with sugaring services, the studio's beauty experts can treat hands and feet to mani-pedis with traditional or gel polish.
