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.
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.
Trinity Med Spa's team of professionals specializes in all types of treatments that improve the appearance of skin. Their focus, like that of the laser they work with, is hair-removal. The laser can be trained most anywhere on the body, including the back, legs, underarms, and other areas exposed during swimsuit season and moments of panic when you forget where your bellybutton is. In addition to laser hair-removal, the spa also promotes beauty with an arsenal of chemical peels, facial elixirs, and skin-tightening agents.

Tony and Mustafa, the owners of Salon Ö Tony, have 15 years of hairstyling experience. When assembling their team, they sought out those with similar dedication and talent. The result: a staff of master stylists who stay apace of the latest trends through continuous training, and whose versatility allows them to work with all hair types and most sailors’ knots. Every hair treatment, regardless of whether it’s a haircut, a coloring treatment, or deep conditioning, begins with a free consultation so the stylists can assess the client’s personal needs and wants. From there, the stylists work their magic, designing hairstyles with elegant shapes, lustrous shines, and vibrant colors. With equal care and commitment, the salon’s skincare and nailcare specialists beautify the body.
The staff at Laser Plus Lasertrolysis & Skin Care—two registered nurses, seven electrologists, and a team of licensed aestheticians—stays abreast of industry trends through extensive training and continuing education. As the center’s name implies, many of its treatments involve laser-based removal of unwanted hair, veins, and skin imperfections. In addition to those advanced therapies, reflexology applies healing pressure to specific energy zones and mineral make up applications with Jane Iredale and organic Eminence products free up time for other important morning tasks, such as peeling off the sticky residue of one’s nightly cocoon.
