Mona Spa Announces Its October 19th Washington Grand Opening

Celebration Includes Free Workshops, Demonstrations and Giveaways

VANCOUVER, Wash., Oct. 10 /PRNewswire/ — Three sisters, each in different career paths and until recently, living in different corners of the country, have come together to open the Mona Spa and Laser Center in Vancouver Mall in Vancouver, Washington. Mona Spa is a luxury medical and relaxation spa and offers state of the art skin rejuvenation services. Mona Spa will host its grand opening celebration October 19th with free educational workshops, demonstrations, and giveaways for new clients.

First opened in Memphis, Tennessee, by founder Mona Sappenfield 15 years ago, the three sisters are proud to carry on the Mona Spa tradition of innovative and effective laser and light treatments, as well as luxurious spa services in Vancouver. Nuha Sulieman, the youngest of the three sisters who moved from Boca Raton, Florida, is a master esthetician and the center’s spa director. “We knew we wanted to live closer to each other and we all have a natural interest in feeling and looking our best,” says Nuha. Zane Handoush, the “big sister” of the trio and the manager and administrator of the center, moved from the San Francisco Bay Area. The third sister, Zaha Hassan, an attorney who has lived in the Pacific Northwest for the last 10 years, works behind the scenes for the most part negotiating lease agreements, drafting employee contracts, and dealing with other nuts and bolts of the business. Together the sisters express, “watching the doors finally open is wonderful after all the planning and work we did together to have the best equipped laser skin rejuvenation center in the area.”

The October 19th Grand Opening events will include workshops on the treatments offered by Mona Spa and Laser Center, which include:

Medical Spa Treatments

— TriActive LaserDermology: for cellulite reduction and for pre and
post-surgery clients. Also a great treatment for postpartum edema.
— New Titan: reduces appearance of wrinkles and tightens skin, known as
the “non-surgical facelift.” This treatment is also very effective at
tightening sagging skin around the abdomen after giving birth.
— Photo Genesis (also known as Solar Genesis): reduces the appearance of
brown spots and freckles on the face and body
— The CoolGlide Excel reduces the appearance of red and purple spider
— The CoolGlide and pulsed light: for permanent hair reduction
— Visia: skin scans for assessing skin damage
— Botox and Restalyne Treatments: (physician administered)

A make-up artist from Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics will be offering free makeovers during the grand opening and representatives from the luxury skin care lines of June Jacobs and Peter Thomas Roth will also be on hand to discuss their product lines exclusively available at Mona Spa and Laser Center Vancouver.

Dr. Sammy Hassan, medical director of Mona Spa and Laser Center Vancouver, plans to hold a workshop on the Botox and Restalyne treatments offered by the Center. Dr. Hassan received his medical degree from the University of Washington School of Medicine, completed a residency in Anesthesia at Stanford University Hospital in Palo Alto, and a fellowship at Cleveland Clinic Foundation in cardio-thoracic anesthesia. He has published an article on the quality of life of head and neck cancer patients in the Journal of Head and Neck. Dr. Hassan holds an active license in California, Oregon and Washington.
