Toscana Medispa fits right in at its location in Baltimore's Little Italy. The spa not only embraces an Italian vibe in its decor, which consists of cream-colored walls, faux columns, and painted Tuscan landscapes; it also hints at its heritage by peppering its service menu with treatments such as espresso massages and facials. Since the spa, like the trademark of the phrase "stomach pain," is owned by a medical doctor, it's also able to offer such clinical services as Contura System cellulite reduction and Botox injections.
Laser hair removal gets rid of pesky strands by targeting them at the follicle with two rhythmic handclaps and an intense burst of light. The beam heats the follicle to a controlled, sauna-like temperature, soothing the hair before it experiences a life review and a serene, fade-to-white farewell. Immediately following treatments, some clients may experience redness, but they will be professionally advised with a post-treatment skin-care plan to relieve whatever minor irritation may occur. Women can use today's Groupon to treat their underarms ($540/three sessions), bikini line ($607.50/three sessions), upper lip ($337.50/three sessions), or chin ($472.50/three sessions), and men can use it for their shoulders ($275 per session) or the nape or the front of their neck ($175 per session).

Board-certified plastic surgeon James E. Chappell, MD, rejuvenates frontispieces with personalized treatments for a variety of facial dispositions, all in a calm and comfortable setting. The skinsperience begins with a private consultation, where clients discuss their individual needs, concerns, and favorite Monopoly railways, followed by the first microdermabrasion facial. The mostly painless procedure sheds dermis-dulling dead skin with a spritz of tiny, exfoliating crystals, diminishing the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and days spent lounging on imploding stars. Customers can then schedule their second treatment at a later date, and up to two Groupons can be purchased for a total of four face-pampering treatments.
Natasha Sandy always knew she wanted to be a doctor, but it was her life experiences that narrowed her focus to dermatology. As a child, she suffered from skin conditions that landed her in numerous hospitals and doctors' offices, and led her to wish for a specialist that would take a whole-body approach to skincare, rather than just treating symptoms. Today, that's exactly what she does at her own practice, where she used advanced diagnostic tools to––in her own words––"treat skin from the inside out."
When she isn't administering injectables, peels, and other therapies to address cosmetic and health-related skincare issues, Dr. Sandy also teaches and writes about dermatology and total health.
