There?s something about Dr. Angel Purdy that inspires confidence in her clients. Perhaps it?s the fact that she?s a native of Baltimore, but it more likely has to do with the professional Obagi, Arbonne, and Kinerase products she uses to treat skin during her chemical peels and microdermabrasion treatments. Dr. Purdy also wants her clients to have confidence in themselves, so she helps them feel comfortable in their own skin with laser hair-removal treatments and injectables that smooth away wrinkles. She also performs cosmetic and reconstructive surgery to reduce the appearance of scars, tighten and lift skin, and remove phantom tails that make it painful to sit down.
Though they seem made for a professional partnership, it wasn't fate that brought the team of Dr. Theda C. Kontis and Dr. Ira D. Papel together. It was years of hard work and dedication. After earning an M.D. from Wake Forest University, Dr. Kontis completed a residency and fellowship at Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions, then went on to become an expert in performing eyelid rejuvenation, brow lifts, and facelifts. Dr. Papel knows the name Johns Hopkins as well. It was where he completed his residency and now serves as an associate professor?that is, when he's not working alongside Dr. Kontis at Facial Plastic Surgicenter.
Here, the doctors lead a team of board-certified plastic surgeons, along with other medical professionals who work to help clients boost their self-esteem and turn back the signs of aging. Visits typically begin with a consultation, in which patients work closely with a doctor or other professional?such as expert medical aesthetician Jeannine Stevens. From there treatment plans can take myriad routes that might include dozens of services, from laser hair and tattoo removal to Botox. In other cases, the surgeons might be called on to perform rhinoplasty or eyelid surgery, but the end goal is always the same: making people look as good as they feel.
Health Quest Chiropractic & Physical Therapy combines effective, time-tested adjustments with physical therapy techniques to ease pain caused by chronic conditions and tackle injuries at their source. Rather than treating symptoms as they pop up or replacing body parts with robotic versions, Doctors Paul Ettlinger and Sean Grady aim to keep patients in a state of long-term wellness.
Since a goodly portion of overall health comes from weight management, the medicos expand their services well beyond traditional chiropractic services to help clients take charge of their diet and exercise routines. Deploying the Metabolize system, they run clients through scientifically calibrated metabolic assessments that reveal how many calories folks burn whether they're exercising, resting, or sleep-walking. With the help of health and wellness coaching, clients can strut confidently into the gym knowing exactly what kinds of exercises will spring-board them to their ideal weight.
The team even eradicates a few of the stressors that surround a trip to the doctor's office. Instead of having to FedEx them to a friend's house for the afternoon, parents can drop kids off at the toy- and book-stocked play area, allowing on-the-go patients to squeeze treatments into busy schedules.
The licensed spa technicians at We Treat Feet Spa offer a variety of treatments for the feet and hands. The classic pedicure with Dr.'s Remedy polish uses a natural alternative to regular polishes, making it idea for clients with nail fungus, brittle or discolored nails, chemical allergies, or those who are pregnant. Nail extensions are available in silk tips or shellac, and customers can adorn their new nails with nail designs. Sore feet can take advantage of a foot bath and massage to relax.
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.
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.
