Medical Laser Solutions entrusts its clients to the care of medical professionals who each possess at least 15 years of experience in the field. For nearly a decade before transitioning to aesthetic medicine, co-owners Nancy Hamel, MD and Lisa Mitchell, a board-certified physician assistant, worked at Sturdy Memorial Hospital, where they treated patients and maintained a symbiotic relationship with a stethoscope. They are joined by Patti Pierce, a medical assistant and certified laser tech who manages the practice, as well Jeannie Capone, a nurse practitioner who excels in injectables. The group specializes in laser treatments for cosmetic and curative purposes, and takes pride in the clinic's Apogee Elite laser because it effectively removes hair on skin of all pigments. The medical specialists also diminish blemishes and signs of aging with cosmetic treatments including dermal injections and chemical peels.

More than a decade ago, Manijeh Roshan was receiving electrology treatments and grew curious about how and why it worked to banish hair. Curiosity led to formal study and training and then to 14 years of experience at Manijeh’s Skin Care and Electrology. Using natural products from Decléor and Pevonia Botanica, Manijeh tailors treatments to the skin of each client while using sterile, disposable implements to ensure safety and cleanliness. In addition to facial and body treatments, waxing and electrolysis take two different routes to make skin as smooth as a buttered dolphin.
At Heritage Threading Salon, a versatile staff brings beauty and flair to the foreground of both genders.

Violet Skin Boutique has been the go-to spot for Boston complexions since 2004, but its story actually starts about 30 years prior. In 1975, Violet Mkhitaryan first began concocting skin products in her native Armenia. She cracked open old books to mine eastern European recipes for inspiration, and when she wasn't whisking oils and herbs into face-rejuvenating salves, she was running spas. Over the following decades, Violet helmed spas in Armenia and Moscow, all while earning degrees in aesthetics and biochemistry, and finally staked her claim in Boston.
Violet's products have appeared not only on customers' faces but in numerous press outlets, including the pages of Martha Stewart's Whole Living and the Improper Bostonian, which called her line the city's best local beauty products. She makes her lauded serums surrounded by glass jugs, dried flower petals, and everything nice in a lab that the Boston Globe described as resembling a pastry chef's kitchen. At her spa's two locations, she beautifies her clients with facials and body treatments celebrated by Every Day with Rachel Ray.
