The Zinnia flower that serves as Elite Medspa & Wellness’ logo may symbolize memories, but their powerful SCITON laser actually makes memories—out of wrinkles, spider veins, and unwanted hair, that is. Medical director, and Board certified and Harvard trained plastic surgeon, Dr. Joseph Russo chose the SCITON laser for a slew of reasons. Not only is it completely capable of handling a rogues gallery of cosmetic complaints, but it dispatches them with the quickness. Its high-speed scanner—which allows the laser to pack a wallop without damaging tissue—is paired up with a computer-guidance system that evenly distributes heat and teaches the laser how to play chess when the office closes for the night.
But the medspa is more than just technology. The staff also works with time-honored treatments to beautify faces, such as chemical peels, Botox, and Juvederm. They even embrace downright ancient techniques, such as hot-stone massage and aromatherapy.
At Boston Ideal Weight Loss, wellness coach and certified craniosacral therapist Claire Desroche teams up with Doctor of Chiropractic Mitchell Simon, medical supervisor, to help their clients reach weight-loss and health goals. They provide structured and individualized plans, one-on-one coaching, and health education as they encourage their clients toward long-term weight loss and sustainable lifestyles. The therapy also potentially addresses aches, pains, or diseases. Claire's training has focused on identifying variations of the cerebrospinal fluid, the focus of craniosacral-therapy sessions.

At America's Lipo Center and Spa, clients get a fully rounded ultrasound lipo treatment. Using no needles or incisions, a high-intensity focused ultrasound pinpoints fat cells and attacks their membranes so that they release their contents, much like when you tickle your sister so she drops the last piece of pizza. The fatty contents then make their way into the lymphatic system, where they're escorted from the body along with other toxins.
Next, radio frequency heats the targeted areas, liquefying fat and tightening the skin. Six to nine treatments tend to achieve the best results; a massage during each session gets the lymphatic system going. Clients also get their heart rates up with 30 minutes of supervised cardio to help burn fat, and they're entitled to unlimited use of the onsite exercise facilities.
At Weightloss Boston, Drs. Shalva Nash and Lilia Bespalko adhere to the Sadkhin Complex, a weight-loss technique that focuses on 16 points behind the ears believed to control hunger. The duo stimulates these hunger-control points during acupressure treatments. Then, they augment the treatments with a nutrition plan of fruits, vegetables, and whole milk, or a milk alternative for those who are lactose intolerant or just afraid of cows. If the regimen is followed correctly, Weightloss Boston claims patients can lose up to 25 pounds per month.
At Ideal Weight Innovations, a team that includes a chiropractor, a personal trainer, and a weight-loss coach work together to help clients shed pounds. Their weight-loss program relies on weekly sessions with the coach, monitoring of clients' body composition, and advice on how to reform eating habits and resist cravings.
