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.
Dr. Faith Esterson is joined in her practice by a talented physician's assistant, a licensed aesthetician, and a pair of medical assistants. This crew tends to a wide range of medical and cosmetic skin concerns, from acne and eczema to wrinkles and sun damage. Skin Medica and Obagi peels offer respite from many of these issues, while more intensive laser treatments and beauty injections provide more dramatic results.
It's been more than 30 years since Janna's Salon and Spa first opened its doors, but the skilled staff still keeps on pace with current trends. Their lengthy list of services includes natural-looking extensions, Reiki massage therapy, and raspberry enzyme skin treatments. Of course, clients can also find classic services like mani-pedis, bikini and Brazilian waxes, and formal up-dos for weddings, dances, or trips to the new invite-only dry cleaners.
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.
La Clinica is a full-service salon and spa that has been serving up bevies of beauty to Baltimore for more than 30 years. The salon's experienced stylists will start you off with a luxurious lather, before follicles get doused in a powerful Japanese conditioning potion. The Japanese serum will be massaged into the scalp to tackle tangles at the source, and then covered by a cap to give modest strands some time to saturate in solitude. After being blasted by the gentle, warm breath of a salon dryer, head noodles will emerge silky smooth, moisturized, and strong enough to be used to hang decorative hammers on walls. To complete your cranial overhaul, a skilled scissor shaman will work with you to design a 'do that fits your lifestyle and personality.
Led by the pedigreed Dr. Lawrence Rosenberg and Dr. Michele Shermak, the Plastic Surgery Center's three high-tech facilities focus not just on beautifying clients but also on educating them about the surgical process. Relax under their capable care with a round of frown-line fighting Dysport, which aims to imbue new vitality into the manifold folds of aging countenances. A sequence of five quick injections can reduce the wrinkles and fine lines caused by aging, stress, and artisanal cheese-tasting. While effects are not permanent, the procedure may stop the muscles that cause furrows from contracting, providing temporary forehead toning.
