All Under One Roof: A Unique Experience in the Valley
Ziba (zee-BAH), the Persian word for beautiful, perfectly encapsulates this medical and day spa nestled in Harrisonburg. Offering a wide array of aesthetic treatments and services, housed in a beautifully renovated building alongside Asfa's Plastic Surgery, this facility offers a unique experience in the Shenandoah Valley. Special thanks to Amy Asfa, vice president, business development and marketing, for showing us around and answering our questions.
What makes Ziba Medical & Day Spa unique in the Shenandoah Valley?
Amy: We are the only medical and day spa in the Valley that is overseen by a Board Certified plastic & reconstructive surgeon (Dr. Saied Asfa). With the convenience of Dr. Asfa's plastic surgery practice being located in the same building as the spa, Dr. Asfa and his aesthetics team can collaboratively tailor treatment plans for our patients and spa clients, providing long-lasting results and the best possible care -- all in one place. Ziba Medical & Day Spa was designed to deliver a comprehensive, high-end medical spa experience from the moment someone enters the spa to the moment they leave. Our guests enjoy calming treatment rooms that also meet medical standards, an expanded aesthetics service menu, an elegant retail boutique. We are also the Valley's only spa with a dedicated “relaxation lounge” where guests can enjoy a serene, Zen-like atmosphere pre- or post-treatment. The lounge also serves as a venue for small events such as bridal showers or milestone celebrations, with event packages that can include aesthetic and medical spa services.
What type of treatments do you provide?
Amy: Under Dr. Asfa's direction, our spa clients have access to the safest, most advanced, clinically proven anti-aging and cosmetic treatments and technologies available, as well as in-office non-invasive body contouring procedures and a wide array of medical grade skincare and beauty products. In addition, Dr. Asfa is our exclusive injector for Botox and fillers. We offer an extensive menu of custom facials, specialty facials (HydraFacial, DiamondGlow, Rezenerate NanoFacial), LED light therapy, advanced chemical peels, body treatments, facial contouring (such as FaceTite), body contouring (such as CoolSculpting and BodyTite), cellulite reduction treatments (such as Cellfina and radiofrequency modalities), skin resurfacing treatments such as Exceed microneedling and Morpheus8, laser vein and lesion treatments, laser hair removal and waxing, lash and brow services and professional make-up and beauty services. We also recently added a dedicated treatment room for Halotherapy (dry salt therapy) and a FAR Infrared sauna.
Can you share more about Ziba Skincare?
Amy: After decades of treating patients with a variety of leading medical grade skin care and anti-aging products, Dr. Asfa decided to take his scientific knowledge to the next level by launching his own private label skincare line. Ziba Skincare by Asfa Medical is a medical grade skincare line that features a wide variety of clinically and scientifically-backed anti-aging products and serums, including chemical peels, retinols, advanced acne treatments, pigment correctors, mineral sunscreens, scar treatments, lip plumping and lash serums, body products, a hair restoration system and more. Many of the products can be customized on site based on a client's individual needs. All Ziba products are manufactured in the USA in FDA-regulated, cruelty free pharmaceutical labs in New York and California, and have a very affordable price point. In addition, we also offer selected products and treatments from Obagi, Revision, Skinbetter Science, Dermalactives and Jane Iredale. If you are unsure of what products or treatments you need, our aestheticians can perform a Visia Skin Analysis of the face, which provides an in-depth visual assessment of what’s happening on the surface as well as the subsurface of your skin. The aesthetician will review the results with you, discuss your skin concerns and goals, and then develop a personalized treatment plan for you, including recommendations for the appropriate products and treatments specific to your skin type and condition.
Anything else you'd like to add?
Amy: We named our spa Ziba (pronounced zee-BAH), which is the Persian word for beautiful, and a nod to Dr. Asfa's Persian heritage. Certain treatments, procedures and distribution of medical grade skincare products are required to be overseen by a medical director, which is what truly sets our spa apart from others in the Shenandoah Valley. The aesthetics industry is booming, and it is becoming increasingly common to see other professions offering "spa" services. We strongly encourage people to do their homework and make sure that their providers are fully trained and licensed to perform medical grade aesthetic services -- and most importantly -- that they have a medical director on site. With Asfa Plastic Surgery and Ziba Medical & Day Spa being under the same roof, Dr. Asfa and our aestheticians are able to work as a team, ensuring the safest, most effective and long-lasting results for our clients.
