Although Maria Lekkakos still possesses the beauty that helped her earn the Miss Massachusetts USA title in 2004, she's far from intimidating—Stuff Magazine calls her "chatty" and "down-to-earth." The outgoing celebrity aesthetician spends her days running a salon and spa that features an ambitious lineup of services. Voted Best Facial of 2010 by Northshore magazine, each facial treatment comes with a skin consultation from a knowledgeable aesthetician, a blend of marine botanicals from Thalgo, and a chorus of "oohs" from wrinkly Ronald Reagan masks. Maria's ability to return skin to glowing youthfulness has drawn attention from Boston Common Magazine_ and a large celebrity clientele that includes Salma Hayek, Leslie Bibb, Rosario Dawson, Brooke Shields and Maria Bello.
Since 1998, Solar Infusions has been helping the North Shore look fabulous year round, with our luxurious, state-of-the-art tanning beds in a spa like atmosphere. You will find our facilities clean, our staff well trained, and the atmosphere non-pretentious and comfortable.
Tucked inside the DoubleTree by Hilton hotel, The Spa at Atlantis tends to world-weary guests tired after a day of splashing around the CoCo Key Water Resort, as well as local bodies dropping by for a simple day of pampering.

Facials blend cleansing and toning tonics to calm acne or aging skin and leave mugs well-moisturized with custom masks, and OPI polishes enliven digits after nails and cuticles are meticulously groomed and softened with lotion or exfoliating sugar scrubs.

The highly trained staff at HLC Med harnesses futuristic technology and its own line of products for services that heal, rejuvenate, and beautify.

Custom chemical peels stimulate cell renewal and collagen production to fill out fine lines, and radio-frequency devices firm up skin and smooth out cellulite. The center also offers services for men, including laser treatments for razor bumps, back-hair removal, and a gentleman's facial that moisturizes faces more effectively than head-butting Poseidon.
