Doctor of Chiropractic Adam Maddox knows how to restore a spine's curvature using clinical biophysics, and he has the certification to prove it. He first studied the technique during his fellowship, learning that you needed spinal traction to restore the spine's curvature and then a personalized exercise program to strengthen the muscles and atom-sized Atlases that support everyone's spine. Today, at his clinic, Ideal Health Chiropractic, Dr. Maddox continues to practice the nonsurgical spinal-correction technique alongside other chiropractic services such as nutritional counseling, physical therapy, and Webster-technique-aided spinal adjustments.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Nassif Soueid and his team of medical aestheticians at Advanced Plastic Surgery collaborate with patients when creating custom treatment plans. The staff guides patients in making a decision for rhinoplasty and liposuction procedures, and full mommy makeovers lift skin stretched by childbirth and accidentally swallowing watermelon seeds. A DiamondTome microdermabrasion session flicks away dead skins cells with a miniature tornado of diamond chips. Obagi, Nia24 and Image Skincare further rejuvenate complexions during each custom treatment.
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.
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.
