You wouldn't want to compete against Dr. Sergio Vendetti in an anatomy-themed trivia night. That's because the Italian native has earned both medical and dental degrees, is a diplomate of the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, and a fellow of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgeons. In his spare moments, he also finds time to lecture on surgical topics at academic and medical conferences, and mentor the next generation of healers as an assistant professor at the Medical College of Virginia.
Dr. Vendetti uses his vast knowledge of the human form at Virginia Surgical Arts, a state-of-the-art ambulatory surgical center, where he performs procedures ranging from dental implants to face and eye lifts. His attention to detail and patient-centered philosophy earned him the gold award for Best Oral Surgeon in the Virginian-Pilot?s Best of Hampton Roads competition in 2012, 2013, and 2014.
His office earned the same contest's gold award for Best Skin Care Facility in Virginia Beach in 2014, as well as the silver in 2013 and the bronze in 2012, due in no small part to its highly trained team. A licensed master aesthetician performs numerous medical-grade treatments such as laser hair removal, photofacials, and microdermabrasion treatments.
Modern medical procedures have the ability to drastically alter a person's appearance. However, this isn't the goal at The Choe Center for Facial Plastic Surgery. Rather than swap each visitor's entire head with a mannequin's, Dr. Kyle Choe?a facial plastic surgeon certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery who exclusively specializes in facial procedures?offers a variety of surgical and nonsurgical options intended to help patients achieve natural-looking results.
In addition to procedures that restructure faces from the inside out, The Choe Center also provides noninvasive and minimally invasive alternatives that focus on exteriors. Classic skincare treatments, including cleansing facials and exfoliating chemical peels, purify pores and address blemishes. Advanced technology also lends a laser-filled hand?the Cutera Pearl cosmetic laser aims to rejuvenate complexions, while the LipoSonix ultrasonic body-contouring system helps slim waistlines and shrink shadows.
The saying "If you want something done right, do it yourself" rings true for for the staff at Savarna's Beauty Spa?who, unsatisfied with current serums on the market, decided to create their own line of skincare. Sarvanas Mantra combines botanical ingredients with the latest skincare technology, resulting in products that both nourish and improve complexions. These serums may be used in tandem with any number of high-tech services, from microdermabrasions to collagen-boosting ultrasonic treatments. Trained specialists also turn their hand to enhancing natural beauty with eyebrow threading, makeup applications, henna tattoos, and a vast variety of lashes that are customized for each client. The beauty spa has several convenient locations to choose from, all of which maintain a high level of pampering.
The earth provides plenty of resources for bettering one's life and well-being. At Spa on the Boulevard, the staff members believe that organic is the ideal path to take when crafting tailored treatments, such as facials, skincare, and waxing. They only use green products, such as those from ?minence, which are naturally made and contain no harmful chemicals. With these tools at their disposal, they brighten and tighten skin while diminishing blemishes and combating the effects of aging. As a full-service spa, they also render organic waxing and body-detoxing treatments. To complete the picture of wellness, they offer relaxing massages as well as tanning, nail, and lash-extension services.
The aestheticians at Cheri's Skin & Nail Boutique profess an unwavering commitment to customer happiness?and they back it up with services such as the hot-spring honey pedicure. At the outset of this invigorating treatment, the beauty professionals submerge feet in a citrus-honey soak. Then, they massage lower legs with a grainy sugar paste, hydrate feet with a butter moisturizer, and swipe away any excess product with towels warmed with the tiniest drop of hot lava.
From start to finish, every treatment at Cheri's Skin & Nail Boutique integrates a similar level of care and attention. Moreover, whether the technicians perform a basic brow wax or a multistep facial, they reach for professional-grade products that yield visible results.
Not all spas come complete with childcare. But at both locations of The Spa & Boutique at Inlet Fitness, youngsters gallivant under the watchful eyes of employees as their parental units bask in a bevy of services including anti-aging facials, chemical peels, and hair-removal treatments. During each appointment, clients receive a professional skincare analysis from spa experts who assist them in locating the best products to match their skin type, lifestyle, and skin type's lifestyle. After in-depth sessions, newly relaxed customers can peruse the spa's boutique, which is stocked with handpicked products from SkinCeuticals, Vivant, and Ultra Pure Cosmetics.
