Knowing that cosmetic procedures can sometimes feel daunting, Dr. Melanie L. Petro makes it her first priority to put her guests at ease. This welcoming environment is established with fresh flowers, a wellspring of empathy, and a friendly team of registered nurses, skincare specialists, and support staff.
After thoroughly explaining the treatments, which range from lifts of all types to a host of non-surgical palliatives, Dr. Petro puts to work the same medical acumen that earned her a position as a fellow of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery. Aging, cellulite, and spider veins run for the hills under the withering gaze of various medical-grade lasers, and long-beleaguered complexions spring back to life like a phoenix on a trampoline after med-spa treatments, such as chemical peels or IPL photofacials.

Blue is everywhere here, from the cerulean-, azure-, and aquamarine-stained windows to the very name of Blue MedSpa. Dr. Landon McLain, medical director of the beauty haven inside the Westin hotel at Bridge Street Town Centre, helms a team of registered nurses, aestheticians, and physicians who focus on restoring youthful appearances. They use advanced equipment such as SmartLipo to reduce the appearance of cellulite, IPL laser machines for photofacials, and six types of dermal fillers to send fine lines scurrying beneath floorboards. Blue also provides traditional salon and spa services with Pureology and Redken products, as well as skincare products from iS Clinical and its own signature line. Regardless of the service, each med-spa staffer takes a holistic approach to treating clients to ensure their beauty goals are accomplished.
