More than skin deep

While the Medical Spa at Nova in Ashburn features lots of treatments that may seem more clinical than relaxing—Photorejuvenation, Botox, and laser tightening—this wellness-oriented medispa is as much “spa” as “med.”

And now it’s offering readers a pampering deal. Clients who book a massage of 50 minutes or longer—a Swedish rubdown starts at $85—get one free session of underarm laser hair removal, a $200 value. Or book the Diamond Radiance Facial ($190) and get one free session of bikini laser hair removal, a $250 value.
