Prior to the advent of the chemical peel, supple skin-seekers were forced to exfoliate by relentlessly pelting themselves with peanut brittle. Reap the benefits of modern skin care with today's Groupon: for $39, you get a glycolic facial peel (an $85 value) at Aphrodite Advanced Esthetic & Skin Care Clinic in McLean.
Led by Dr. Aoushirvan R. Sarraf, Aphrodite's staff aims to bolster beauty with the most advanced anti-aging and anti-unlovely treatments. Before the glycolic peel commences, each client receives a personal consultation with Dr. Sarraf to outline his or her skin care goals, such as treating fine lines, annihilating acne, evening out uneven pigmentation, and super-jumping across the Atlantic Ocean. Then, depending on skin tone, clients receive a 20% salicylic/glycolic solution or a 50% lactic/kojic mix. Skin is prepped with an initial cleansing Vital C hydrating-enzyme masque and relaxation massage before the acid facial solution is applied. Following the treatment, elastin and collagen production increase, creating a visage as smooth and springy as a steamed baozi bun. An aftercare regimen of sunscreen and night cream completes the process.
Aphrodite offers personal, bedside care with an emphasis on making the client comfortable while maintaining safety and confidentiality. Scheduling is flexible and done to ensure minimal waiting and zero breach of the space-time continuum.
Aphrodite Advanced Esthetic & Skin Care
Dr. Anoush R. Sarraf and the staff at Aphrodite Advanced Esthetic & Skin Care resurface and reshape the body using laser technology. With the many settings of the Candela GentleMax workstation, they tackle cosmetic complaints such as spider veins, hyperpigmentation, and unwanted body hair. Brandishing the CO2 fractional laser, they deploy a fleet of microbeams to stimulate epidermal renewal. A gallery of before-and-after photos recounts the team's cosmetic successes better than the clinic's resident balladeer.
