As a family physician, Dr. Zainab Nawab advocates preventive medicine, but she also recognizes that aging is the one condition no amount of treatment can prevent. That's why, in her role at Vitalize MD, she oversees services designed to offset the effects of aging, such as wrinkles and sagging skin. Her methods are decidedly high-tech: when she's not tightening the skin with 3DEEP radio-frequency treatments, she's erasing fine lines with the Fraxel system's microscopic lasers and injectables such as Botox and Dysport. Even the products the center uses during its five facials—and sells to clients—have a medical bent, from the clinically tested SkinMedica line of cleansers to Jane Iredale's dermatologist-endorsed mineral makeup.
Dr. Sandra V. Kristiansen heads the capable staff at the Vein & Aesthetics Clinic of New England, one that specializes in minimally invasive cosmetic procedures and houses a physician onsite daily.

Other treatments include IPL hair removal and laser liposuction, the latter of which liquefies and removes fat via a tiny cannula. Established in 1997 and BBB accredited, the Vein & Aesthetic Clinic of New England now operates in a brand-new facility with optimal highway access.
Named Best Cosmetic Surgeon of 2010 by City Living Magazine, Dr. Deborah Ekstrom combines surgical savvy with an artistic eye to release ravishing visages from drooping or damaged skin. Each treatment begins with an in-depth consultation to determine how procedures can be customized to give faces an authentically youthful look, taking into account patients' medical history and favorite kool-aid-mustache color. Clients will then receive up to 0.08 cc's of Radiesse Volumizing Filler injected into sagging areas, immediately achieving more cherubic cheeks or all-around fuller features. Radiesse is naturally metabolized, which prompts the body to build more collagen, extending newly sculptured looks for up to nine months.
