Protecting oneself from the sun is the same as protecting oneself from a grizzly bear: avoid direct eye contact, maintain a safe distance, and gently reassure the entity that the universe revolves around it. Evaluate the effects of the sun's subtle mauling with today's Groupon: for $60, you get a sun-damage-assessment before-and-after photo and sunscreen from Dr. Bruce Freedman's team at Plastic Surgery Associates of Northern Virginia in McLean (a $150 value). In keeping with the practice's pursuit of beauty, some pages on the site feature the human body in its least clothing-burdened state and as such should be entered with discretion.
During a 20-minute visit, Medical Director Dr. Bruce Freedman and his team of body beautifiers photograph the patient's face, then apply a UV filter to the image to reveal any accumulated sun damage. Patients can take home the before-and-after photo to use as dartboard fodder or a reminder to wear sunscreen before the summer season. All clients receive a free bottle of MDSolarScience's Mineral Screen sunscreen lotion, equipped with an SPF of 40 that protects countenances from both UVA and UVB rays during armor-less jousting tournaments.
Plastic Surgery Associates of Northern Virginia
At Plastic Surgery Associates of Northern Virginia, Dr. Bruce Freedman calls on his Duke University School of Medicine degree and his NYU aesthetic-surgery fellowship to perform surgical and nonsurgical cosmetic procedures with a steady hand. Dr. Freedman—who is also an assistant professor at Georgetown and has been published in more than 40 medical journals and textbooks—relies on a talented staff that includes licensed, registered nurses. Together, they perform such procedures as breast augmentation, tummy tucks, and face-lifts, as well as less invasive laser therapies and chemical peels to treat skin and remove hair. When not beautifying bodies, Dr. Freedman continues to advance his medical research, developing novel cosmetic and aesthetic techniques such as combining lasers with surgery or performing facials on amoebas.
