At Beleza Pura Spa, aestheticians bustle about, beautifying clients with a range of professional services. As one technician adorns a face with custom-blended airbrush makeup, another adds rich color to the skin with a natural Bronze Biologic tanning solution. To keep clients feeling and looking younger, skin specialists administer facials, anti-cellulite body wraps, and advanced metabolism-boosting Sudatonic treatments. The spa also hosts teen parties that allow guests to pick from a range of facial treatments.
Salon Charisma pampers skin, nails, and follicles with an assortment of services offered by an expert staff, all within a comfortable environment infused with woody accents and subdued hues. Those looking for hand and foot attention can avail themselves of the mani-pedi, which includes a 30-minute natural manicure in which nails are shaped, cuticles are maintained, and arms are massaged up to the elbows before a coat of OPI paint is applied to nails in faithful reproductions of modernist monochrome paintings. Jealous toes get the same attention in the 45-minute pedicure, including a massage up to the knees.
Salon Entré Nous pampers clients with beautifying services, delivered amid a serene environment marked by brightly lit walls, contemporary art, wood floors, and simplistically sound salon stations. Each station is outfitted with oversized mirrors that lend a glimpse into each of the subtle steps involved in the hot-stone mani-pedi. Heightened by the warmth of smooth stones, this mani-pedi includes a neat nail trimming of fingernails and toenails. Perfectly symmetrical tips will take the place of formerly unruly edges. Cuticles will be gently groomed into a more sightly disposition, and all handlebars and kick stands will be left feeling buttery and spry.
The SPA at Richard Francis customizes its selection of facials, massages, and hair-removal treatments to suit the diverse dermal desires of each gracious guest. Many facials, such as the hydration restoration facial, hydrate and renew ($80), while the ultrasonic anti-aging facial gently exfoliates and delivers antioxidants deep into the cells ($125). Seasoned escape artists can loosen stressful knots with one of the spa's one-hour massages: the deep tissue targets chronic muscle tension, stiffness, and soreness ($75), while the hot-stone massage's essential oils and hot basalt stones melt away stresses as though they’re wicked witches at a foam party ($115). Complete any TLC triumvirate with one of many hair-removal treatment, which can be administered in the form of eyebrow shaping ($20), lip hair hewing ($10), bikini barbering ($25), and more.
After serving inner-city patients with the National Health Service Corps, Dr. Joseph Lee founded Wellesley Dental Associates. While his friendly staff welcomes patients, doctors with degrees from Harvard and Tufts perform general and cosmetic procedures, such as dental implants, root canals, and routine checkups. Veneers cover uneven smiles with a porcelain façade; invisible braces ensure that teeth align; and whitening services boost shine in-office or at home. In addition to beautifying bites for a living, Dr. Lee has generously donated his services to patients in Honduras and Bolivia.
At A Beautiful You, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Elliot Lach leads a team of specialists in fostering youthful appearances with an arsenal of noninvasive treatments.

When not fending off wrinkles with dermal fillers or stop signs, the staff is readying clients for at-home maintenance with an inventory of skincare products from ZO Skin Health, Dermalogica, Obagi, and Vivité.
