Since their founding in 2002, The Red Devils have raised more than $1.8 million to support more than 4,000 families affected by breast cancer throughout Maryland. Seeking to improve these families' quality of life as well as their economic and emotional situation, the team routinely hosts fundraising events such as The Red Devils Bull and Oyster Roast. They also offer a variety of support-related services, such as treatment transportation, family support, and medical services for eligible patients who are referred by their partner hospitals and breast centers.
Sanitize 4 Serenity's mission is to oust dust mites, and allergens from the home using only natural cleaning products that are safe for children and pets. To sanitize mattresses, upholstery, stuffed toys, and carpets, techs shine germicidal UV lamps to kill bacteria, or employ black lights to reveal any stains or jellyfish hiding in couch cushions. From there, they spray natural solutions rich with enzymes that eat and destroy any remaining bacteria, and may finish some jobs with machine extraction. A low-moisture extraction method follows vacuuming, prespray, and carpet raking during each carpet-cleaning treatment, allowing freshened fibers to dry quickly. To keep wood floors at their shiniest, they also buff planks with natural solutions that won't warp the wood and finish with a lamb's wool bonnet to leave it looking lustrous and new.
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.
The Downtown Dog Resort & Spa's diverse 10,000-square-foot facility helps its canine guests sleep, exercise, and stay healthy all in one spot. During daycare sessions, pups are matched with friends of similar sizes and temperaments before they clamber over jungle gyms and dive into pools. Doggie treadmills help pooches jog off extra pounds, and obedience training teaches them to avoid the temptation of biting on a check-raise bluff during a game of poker. At night, boarding pups settle into small and large suites replete with heated floors, elevated beds, and overhead air-conditioning. In addition to creature comforts, the hotel also keeps vets from the adjoining Swan Harbor Animal Hospital close to dole out health screenings and respond to any issues that might arise.
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.
