Dr. Christian Ford is running out of wall space. His CV boasts academic credentials aplenty?after graduating from Boston University Magnum Cum Laude, he became a member of the Alpha Omega Alpha Medical Honor Society at Boston University School of Medicine. During that time, he investigated a method for speeding recovering from wounds using vacuum-assisted devices, and his research was published in Annals of Plastic Surgery. And that was just the beginning?after graduating he completed a six-year residency in plastic and reconstructive surgery at the prestigious Stanford University Medical Center. But his education extends beyond the diplomas, mortarboards, and ceremonial Pink Floyd posters he earned in college. In 2008, Dr. Ford took up a position at Hospital de la Familia in Guatemala, where he performed pediatric cleft lip and palate repairs, burn surgery, and hand surgery. Since returning to the States, he's made his business in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery, and operates out of a combination clinic and med spa where face, breast, and body procedures can be supplemented with Botox and dermal filler treatments.
ABEO MEDSPA lives up to its name by transforming bodies with advanced laser and skincare services. Seven days a week, techs erase unwanted hair with an Alma Harmony Elite laser, clear complexions with a combination of infrared, IPL, and radio-frequency technologies, and smooth away fine lines with four types of injectable solutions, including Botox. Aestheticians also handle more traditional spa treatments, from diamond-tip microdermabrasion sessions to customized chemical peels.
New England Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Center's Harvard-affiliated and board-certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. John Lazor, applies 19 years of medical mastery to bestowing patients with impeccable images and alluring expressions using the latest in cosmetic technology. Botox injections aim to allay furrows and crow's feet around the forehead, eyes, and brow area that form over years of smiles, frowns, and eyebrow-raising to indicate extreme suspicion. In an approximately 10-minute treatment session, Lazor will administer several small injections around the crease-bearing areas, often resulting in lessened lines within three to five days of treatment and lasting up to six months.
Friendliness is one of the primary values at Laser MD MedSpa, which also incorporates beauty and science into the services it offers. There, a welcoming, board-certified doctor accompanied by medical staff supervises treatments that revivify appearances from scalp to heel. Wielding advanced cosmetic lasers, certified laser technicians sculpt bodies, zap unwanted hair, and resurface complexions. Despite the name, the centers go far beyond light-aided treatments; technicians also administer peels and injectables to combat lines and age spots. While praising the team's beautification abilities, clients also took time to laud staff members' personable, informative style, and the warm atmosphere they cultivate. Other services offered include Botox, Velashape II, cellulite reduction, iLipo ULTRA, skin therapies, Vaser Shape, and IPL photofacial. All machines are FDA-approved.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Joseph Russo completed a plastic surgery residency at Harvard Medical School. So, when he personally selects nurses and aestheticians for his team at Dream Spa Medical, each staff member must meet his expert standards to perform advanced cosmetic treatments ranging from injections to surgery to noninvasive vein removal. With SkinCeuticals and Image products, aestheticians revitalize clients' skin during facials, peels, microdermabrasions, and other services. Laser hair treatments rid clients' bodies of unwanted fuzz, and tattoo removal helps keep the grocery lists on their arms up to date.
The Vein & Aesthetic Center of Boston's experienced physicians implement noninvasive aesthetic treatments in order to enhance the body's natural beauty. The FDA-approved Zerona treatment breaks down body fat with low-level lasers. Before treatment, clients meet with an amicable aesthetician for a 30-minute consultation to review the extensive treatment plan that encompasses six 40-minute sessions over a two-week period. Then, clients relax underneath a cold laser light that gently renders superficial fat cells porous, enabling the body's lymphatic system to expunge subterranean chub via widened protoplasmic portals. This fat-cutting procedure is nearly pain-free and requires little to no downtime, allowing clients to resume their daily routines quickly afterward. Patients typically experience results (up to 3–4 inches off the waist, hips, and thighs on average) about a week after completing the six-session regimen.
