Having trained extensively in Europe and across the United States, Angelbare founder Shahla Whitmore combines the latest permanent-makeup techniques with her own knack for artistry. Inside her Wellesley studio, Shahla draws upon more than a decade of experience to trace lips and eyes with dramatic liners so you'll know where they go if they ever fall off. Shahla’s big heart is as impressive as her considerable talent—she offers complimentary scar camouflage treatments and services to children who have lost their eyebrows for medical reasons.
Board-certified plastic surgeons Renee Bennett O'Sullivan, MD, develops a comfortable rapport with her patients throughout years of continued care at their office, which is located in a house on Denton Road. Though she specializes in cosmetic surgery for the face, body, and breasts, she brings the same level of perfectionism to nonsurgical cosmetic procedures and sandwich making. She treats wrinkles and blemishes of age with Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin injections using Restylane and Radiesse fillers.
Dr. Renee dedicates much time to traveling the world, volunteering her medical expertise in Ecuador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Haiti, where she has helped set up a burn unit in the Albert Schweitzer Hospital. Here in the States, she lends her services to the Iraq Star Foundation which provides free plastic surgery to war veterans.
Many an aesthetic problem has yielded to Norma Cataldo, the clinical director of Cosmetic Laser Solutions. She has been fixing dermal flaws with noninvasive beams of light for more than 10 years, remedying conditions such as wrinkles, sun spots, cellulite, and spider veins.
At the clinic, she is supported by Dr. Patrick Marasco, a board-certified plastic surgeon. With their combined skills, they are able to treat patients to more invasive procedures in their in-office surgical suite as well as lively harmonies over the intercom system.
With more than 40 years of combined experience, the clinical staff at Finesse Cosmetic Laser & Lipo Center works to beautify faces and bodies with a wide range of medical aesthetic procedures. Medical director and founder Dr. Peter Kruy performs laser- and ultrasound-assisted liposuction designed for reduced trauma and faster recovery times, while a team of nurses and medical aestheticians handles non-invasive treatments such as VelaShape body contouring or laser hair removal. The staff prioritizes client comfort by listening carefully to questions and concerns, and by outfitting their well-appointed waiting room with cushy chairs, a burbling wall fountain, and a choir of whales crooning lullabies.
The doctors at Cosmetic Laser Clinic remove all types of blemishes from the skin, including tattoos, acne, spider veins, and unwanted hair using laser technology, radio frequency, and injections. With these modern techniques, the professionals also smooth out wrinkles and help snorers stop their nocturnal didgeridoo impersonations.
Trained in cutting-edge fat-reduction procedures such as Smartlipo TriPlex and Vaser Liposelection, Dr. Edwin Ishoo and his staff aim to obliterate cellulite using the latest high-tech cosmetic treatments. The VelaShape II is designed to boost the metabolism of stored energy and shrink fat cells and chambers with a multipronged attack consisting of bipolar radiofrequency, infrared light energies, mechanical massage, and indisputable logic. Patients relax during the quick procedure, which can be as short as 20 minutes, while technicians heat their dermal and hypodermal tissue, then use suction skin rollers in an effort to smooth out crinkly bone covers. Results can appear as soon as the third weekly session and can last up to six months.
