Soothing aromas calm clients' senses as they enter the tranquil waiting room of Serenity Wellness Studio, which houses Msprity Spa Luxuries. Founded in 2006, Msprity Spa Luxuries is the brainchild of owner Msprity, whose background in health care and special knowledge of sensitive skin informs each of the spa's customized treatments. In addition to skincare and facial services, the spa further relaxes clients with beauty treatments, body wraps, and massages. A range of products is also available so customers can maintain glowing skin at home, saving them the trouble of always holding flashlights under their chins.
Dr. Steven J. Rottman's extensive training and caring bedside manner have earned him high praise from his patients. Multiple awards for his skill and attentiveness dot his trophy shelf, including a Compassionate Doctor Recognition in 2011 and a 2012 Patients' Choice Award from PatientsChoice.org.
The good doctor's passion for research allows him to offer the latest techniques as well as conventional cosmetic and reconstructive procedures for the face and body, including breast augmentations and lifts, tummy tucks, and liposuction. Dr. Rottman completed a prestigious fellowship at Georgetown University Hospital in Washington, DC, where he studied breast surgery with internationally renowned industry leaders. Today, he and his staff also buff complexions with facials, chemical peels, and liquid face-lifts.
Unless you stole a wig from a store mannequin, your hair is yours and only yours. That's why the skilled stylists at Ultimate You Hair Designs customize cut and color treatments to the individual's unique face shape, lifestyle, and personality. Aestheticians also apply lash extensions, which offer a voluminous look without the mess of mascara.
At Gem-N-I Creations, cosmetologist Keonne Sullivan-Johnson has one goal: send her clients out the door looking even better than they did when they arrived. Keeping up on the latest trends in cuts and color, she brings up-to-date knowledge to her consultations with her clients. Then, she sets out with her shears to tame and style the landscape of each coiffure. Sullivan-Johnson is also well-versed in the art of hair extensions and sewn weaves. She's even adept at makeup application for special events or nights on the town spent library hopping.
At Neha Threading Salon & Spa, Neha Gupta, a threading specialist and licensed cosmetologist who's worked in India and the United States for 18 years, leads a team of experienced aestheticians, technicians, and stylists. She invites customers to unwind and relax with a wide range of beautifying and soothing spa and salon services. Threading and waxing remove unwanted hair, sculpting brows along the way. Custom facial treatments cleanse pores and exfoliate complexions, rejuvenating them for another day in public or one final staring contest with the mirror. Full-body massages use modalities such as deep tissue or hot stones to alleviate aches or pains, whereas hair and nail services tend to heads, fingers, and toes.
As a therapist, Kelly was never content to settle on one craft. After graduating from the Baltimore School of Massage in 2000, she began practicing as a certified massage therapist. Soon, she also delved into detoxification and weight loss, became a licensed aesthetician and makeup artist, and trained in holistic techniques such as reflexology, chakra balancing, and energy work.
Today, Kelly follows her passion for making others feel beautiful inside the private rooms of her quiet Pikesville spa. To cultivate a serene atmosphere, she surrounds her clients with candlelight, aromatherapy, and soft music. Her range of skin treatments can cleanse pores, repair sun damage and acne scars, and infuse faces with nourishing herbs or vitamin C. She also coaxes out skin's natural glow and strangers' spontaneous compliments with back facials, body polishes, and spray tans.
