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.
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.
Though they call upon a wealth of skill and knowledge to personalize their beautifying skin and body treatments, the medically licensed aestheticians at Landa Cosmetic & Spa pride themselves most on establishing open lines of communication with their patients. Their uncommon empathy goes a long way in making patients feel comfortable, as does the fact that many of the medical spa's services take place under the guidance of a board-certified surgeon.
A repertoire of advanced tools assists the staff through treatments, from the ultrafine crystals that exfoliate skin during microdermabrasion facials to the purified proteins that fill out furrows during Botox injections. When they aren't rejuvenating complexions, they perform sclerotherapy treatments and remove hair with gentle Alma lasers and roll FDA-approved Endermologie devices across skin to erase unsightly cellulite.
The Solar System's fleet of top-notch tanning beds uses varying wattages to tint bodies in a rainbow of bronzes. Horizontal and vertical UV bulbs illuminate beds from KBL and Titan Tower. The KBL Max 10 flaunts extras such as customizable aromatherapy, cooling mist, and an audio system that broadcasts personal MP3 playlists, whether they play relaxing piano concertos or practical pneumonic devices to remember the boss's favorite ice-cream flavors. The Sunless VersaSpa spray booth kisses complexions with faux sun in three minutes, misting on a natural shade that endures for up to 10 days. Professional products are also available to accelerate and extend the lifespan of tans. The salon's sunny confines are accented by orange and red hues, hardwood floors, and leather waiting-room chairs strewn with zebra-print throw pillows.
Dr. Brian Davison is something of a magician. As his practice’s name suggests, the vascular specialist excels in making unwanted veins disappear with advanced sclerotherapy or laser treatments. But the skills of Dr. Davison and his staff also extend into the realm of the cosmetic, from rejuvenating facials to noninvasive body-contouring procedures. Injections—including Botox and Juvéderm—smooth away unwanted lines, while lasers rid limbs or self-conscious peaches of unwanted fuzz. No matter what the service, the clinic focuses on minimally invasive methods and client satisfaction to help guests move toward their aesthetic goals with confidence.
