Dr. Sheri Rowen has staked out a solid position at the forefront of her field. She was among the first in the nation to offer "instant vision" cataract surgery and served on a 10-person team investigating the use of implantable contact lenses. Persistent study and adoption of new technologies has been a hallmark of her ophthalmologic practice, which nowadays employs the 3-D eye mapping in custom LASIK surgery, a wide range of lens implants, and treatments that make it possible to read people’s auras. Beyond her expertise in eye care, Dr. Rowen extends her services to the rest of the face and body with cosmetic skincare, such as laser hair removal, microdermabrasion, and scelrotherapy for spider veins.

Baltimore Tattoo Removal would like to be their clients' "undo" button. No longer do you have to fret about the permanence of tattoos bearing an ex-lover's name or bank account number—the staff has a solution. Designed for virtually any skin tone, their Astanza Duality laser breaks up the subdermal ink particles in a handful of sessions, so that the body can flush it away. Two wavelengths target different shades of ink, and a cooling feature or local anesthesia helps soothe any discomfort (many liken the feeling to a snap from a rubber band). Afterwards, clients will find the only evidence of their procedure in a superficial burning sensation and possibly bruising and blistering.
