Aesthetics by Katzen provides medically supervised cosmetic treatments for a variety of skin conditions. The enzyme treatment and chemical peel duo is an intensive facial treatment for muscle masks long worn down by workaday worries, sun damage, and constant attacks from gibbons. To start, the aesthetician will provide an enzyme treatment (a $45 value) to rejuvenate damaged skin and prep your face for the next treatment. Immediately following this is the chemical peel; choose from a lactic 15% peel ($50), a mild exfoliation that retains moisture and is ideal for dry, dehydrated, or sun-damaged skin, or the glycolic 30% peel ($65), which helps to tighten and tone skin suffering from uneven texture or unbalanced tone. The chemical peels are not as harsh as some, and require no downtime after leaving the practice. The treatments must be spaced out by at least one week.
The staff of medical professionals at Katzen Eye Group, which first opened its doors in 1968, brings blurry vision into focus at four locations in Baltimore, Abingdon, Lutherville, and Rosedale. Attentive physicians peer into peepers of all ages as they administer comprehensive exams, outfit patients with prescription glasses, and help prevent diseases such as glaucoma. Lasik surgery can correct one's distance vision. Cataract surgery, which replaces one's cloudy natural lens with a clear implantable lens is also performed at Katzen Eye Group. Additionally, a staff of aesthetic professionals beautify bodies through services including skincare and cosmetic laser treatments, which can eliminate wrinkles around the eyes more effectively than staring at a jar of cold cream.
Douglas J. Lavenburg, M.D. leads a team of optometrists that oversees the welfare of patients’ eyes and vision with up-to-date optometric techniques. But their services extend beyond eye exams, vision correction, and LASIK surgery. Microdermabrasions, pulsed-light hair removal, and Botox revamp complexions, and facials sprinkled with Obagi professional skin products, keep wrinkles at bay.
The trio of optometrists at Peepers of Severna Park restores optical clarity with a combination of traditional personal care, state-of-the-art digital machinery, and designer frames from brands including Oliver Peoples, National, Giorgio Armani, and Kate Spade. During eye exams, a trained doctor conducts a thorough vision history, performs a series of diagnostic exams, and runs computerized tests to determine eyes' ability to interpret poetry written in binary code. Following exams, calibrated lenses nestle between the grips of premium designer frames such as Oliver Peoples' Lance R frames ($339.95), Prada 22M ($299.95), or Candie’s Coco frames ($169.95).
In 2001, Dr. Robert Samit had a vision, which was a pretty appropriate phenomenon, considering that he's an optometrist. He saw in the future a network of eye doctors, united under the banner of a single company that provides quality vision care—plus a huge selection of value-priced and designer eyewear frames—to patients throughout Washington DC, Maryland, and Virginia.
Together with company president Sue Healey Downes, they now boast a whopping 51 locations throughout the region, each with a licensed Doctor of Optometry on hand. They equip this army of eye examiners with the latest technology. When a doctor determines that a corrective lens is called for, he or she prescribes them before MyEyeDr.'s team of eyecare consultants helps patients choose from a huge array of frames from such brands as Chanel, Oakley, and Ray Ban RX.

Headed by veteran ophthalmologist and CustomVUE LASIK surgeon Dr. Frank Owczarek, Eye Care of Delaware fixes faulty vision in a welcoming and attentive environment. Patients begin their ocular odyssey with an initial one-hour consultation to evaluate whether they’re eligible for CustomVUE LASIK. Unlike a staring contest with a stuffed leopard, the surgery itself takes less than one hour, starting with eye-numbing drops to ease discomfort and a detailed, computerized mapping of the eye for high-precision surgery. During the procedure, a powerful laser reshapes the tissue of the cornea, changing the eye's shape to better focus light on visual receptors. Most patients report an uncomfortable pressure during the process, though the sensation is generally mild.
