After seven years honing his skills in the general- and plastic-surgery divisions of Charity Hospital in New Orleans, Dr. Timothy Mountcastle returned to his native Virginia to devote himself full-time to body beautification as head of Mountcastle Plastic Surgery & Vein Institute, now a leading vein center of nearly 10 years. Dr. Mountcastle couples a keen eye for aesthetic detail with years of experience in varicose and spider vein treatment, including the use of lasers, radio-frequency ablation, minimally invasive microphlebectomy techniques, and ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy. Dr. Mountcastle also has extensive knowledge and practice in cosmetic and skin cancer surgery, as well as mole, lipoma, and cyst removals. A staff of top aesthetic nurses, physician assistants, and aestheticians help send facial wrinkles running with Botox and other facial treatments.
With a skin-savvy staff of medical professionals, glowMD pares down pileous patches with help from FDA–approved laser technology. Candela lasers are ideal for tenderly blasting away tough tufts from skin shields of all tones, types, and tints, freeing men and women from irritating razor burn and the amateur sonnets of poetic waxers. After five lightsabering sessions, most patients see significant deductions in the amount of bothersome body bristle, though results vary from patient to patient. An individual consultation helps evaluate each client's specific needs.
The saying "If you want something done right, do it yourself" rings true for for the staff at Sarvanas Beauty—who, unsatisfied with current serums on the market, decided to create their own line of skincare.

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.

Weight-loss programs combine hormone optimization, prescription appetite suppressants, and a personalized protocol, helping their patients achieve slimmer selves with consultations, personalized nutrition and exercise plans, and supplements. The clinic also specializes in platelet-rich plasma therapy, a non-surgical treatment that helps boost the natural healing process by enriching the bloodstream with concentrated platelets.
The stylists at Salon Turquoise listen carefully to the wishes of their clients before delivering sessions designed to make those dreams come true.
