The Javan Philosophy

The ancient Greek historian, Herodotus, was among the first to document a sacred Fountain of Youth many centuries ago. Countless civilizations have popularized a medieval fantasy of curing one human characteristic that binds us all – aging. But, none were backed by science, employed a staff of impressive medical experts, or provided the best service in the aesthetic healthcare industry. 

Javan is the Persian word for ‘youth,’ in a gender-neutral language that never alters its form based on social class or demographic. Such a title was fitting in conceptualizing our anti-aging and wellness clinic to serve the diverse Washington D.C. community. As we see it, no matter who you are, you deserve to experience the latest treatments that help you look and feel your best.  

We are not your average aesthetic clinic, we are an Anti-Aging and Wellness Institute. Our approach is to educate our patients on their unique concerns because countering the inevitable signs of aging is complex. Javan Wellness ensures every patient leaves feeling not only invigorated, but also more knowledgeable about their concerns and treatment options. From Botox to CoolSculpting; Hormone Replacement Therapy to Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) treatments; we ensure our patients have a spectacular experience with a thorough understanding of a personalized treatment well worth their time and commitment.  

Skin Rejuvenation for a Youthful Appearance

Javan is here to help you achieve a more youthful appearance. We listen to your specific goals and enhance your unique features. Our injectables are administered by our board certified medical staff and can provide quick results with minimal invasiveness. Here are some injectables we offer:

  • Botox. Botox injections are the top requested aesthetic service nationwide. Botox injections contain Botulinum toxin to temporarily relax the muscles that contribute to wrinkles. Popular areas of use include ‘crow’s feet’ around the eyes, furrows between the eyebrows, and forehead wrinkles. Botox can also be used to enhance the jawline and lips with a tactical approach giving natural-looking results. Botox is often used as a preventative against dynamic wrinkles caused by muscle movements. 
  • Juvederm. As a family of facial fillers, Juvederm uses hyaluronic acid to correct moderate facial wrinkles and folds. It is widely used to improve facial contours and improve signs of aging by bringing volume to sagging areas of the skin. It is often used to provide a more youthful look to lips and cheeks, which typically lose volume as we age. 
  • Restylane Hand Rejuvenation. Javan offers Restylane Lyft which was recently approved by the FDA for Hand Rejuvenation. This treatment corrects loss of volume on the back of hands and like Juvederm, it is also formulated with hyaluronic acid and offers incredible flexibility to maintain mobility. Adding lift and volume to the back of the hands for a more youthful look is a well sought after anti-aging treatment proudly offered at Javan. 

We know our patients’ expectations differ based on their personal anti-aging goals. Javan’s injection-based treatments are offered after a thorough consultation to understand your unique needs. The result is a personalized treatment that embraces your vision of youth and beauty.  

Cutting-Edge Anti-Aging Solutions

Science moves at a refreshingly quick pace in the anti-aging world. At Javan Wellness, we embrace cutting-edge treatments that provide our patients with long-lasting results, including:  

  • Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) Treatments. Platelet-rich plasma is derived of your own blood plasma which contains active growth factors. PRP is used in a multitude of treatments, including hair restoration and joint pain, serving as a natural, non-surgical remedy suitable for both men and women. PRP is injected into target areas of the scalp, leaving you with faster hair growth and rejuvenated skin cells, and it is used to speed up joint pain recovery.  
  • Stem-cell Therapy. As an area of medicine that constantly edges into new discoveries, stem-cell therapy has far-reaching benefits. This anti-aging treatment rejuvenates the skin by replenishing the stem cells supply, leaving patients with youthful skin and improved physical conditions.  
  • Hormone Replacement Therapy. With Age and Illness, comes a loss of normal hormone levels that keep us feeling younger, healthier, with stronger recovery and immune systems.  HRT therapy restores hormone levels to improve livelihood and reverse age-related weight gain, fatigue, memory loss, and other symptoms associated with hormone imbalances.  

Our medical experts can determine which of these solutions are right for you based on a thorough examination of your overall health and wellness goals, and treatable deficiencies that prevent you from looking and feeling your best.

Rejuvenating Body Solutions

Weight gain, sagging skin, stretch marks, and pigmentation are all changes in our bodies that may be associated with aging. Along with helping you put your best face forward, Javan offers aesthetic treatments to combat these stubborn signs of aging with the latest technologies in body treatments. 

  • CoolSculpting. As an FDA-approved therapy that involves freezing stubborn fat cells, CoolSculpting can help you permanently kill fat cells that seem impossible to melt away with diet and exercise. As a minimally invasive alternative to liposuction, this in-office procedure delivers startling results: on average, 20% of fat cells in a treatment area are destroyed and drain over time through the lymphatic system.
  • VelaShape. Velashape is a non-invasive body contouring treatment that can reduce volume and cellulite in certain areas of the body, commonly used in the abdomen, lower buttocks/upper legs, and lower back. The technology combines infrared light, bi-polar radio frequency energy and vacuum to cause deep heating of the fat cells, their surrounding connective tissue, and underlying dermal collagen fibers. 
  • Laser Skin Treatments. Javan Wellness uses eTwo technology to perform sublime and sublative treatments. These comprehensive facial rejuvenating treatments use radio frequency energy to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scarring. Both treatments are either performed individually or as part of a full facial treatment to purify or revive the skin. 

With a thorough consultation, our trained experts can help you determine which treatment or combination of treatments will help you achieve your body goals. We understand that beauty comes in all shapes and sizes, and everyone’s definition of a desirable body shape can be quite different. That’s why our individually assessed treatment ‘recipe’ is uniquely designed based on your goals.
