The doctors at Oral Surgery South have all the training to back up their straightforward business name—and it's a lot of training. To perform oral and maxillofacial surgery, these medical professionals took on up to six additional years of training as they mastered surgical techniques, anesthesia, and the hanging of many degrees on a single wall. In addition to helping patients with a variety of problems of the mouth, teeth, and face, they also perform aesthetic services, giving their patients youthful looks that complement their healthy smiles.
As if to complement its view of the harbor, Aria Salon & Spa immerses guests in oceanic serenity. One of its body treatments begins with exfoliating salts from the Dead Sea, then cocoons clients in a Hawaiian seaweed mask. Nails can benefit from the same mask during a Caribbean therapy treatment, whose tropical ingredients—mango and cocoa butter among them—soften the skin alongside scented paraffin wax. The ocean even appears on the massage table: a detoxifying back massage employs marine products that refresh the back, scalp, feet, and fin.
Of course, not every treatment calls upon briny remedies. The salon segment of the venue administers blow-dries, haircuts, and color treatments. Makeup artists highlight features with Aveda products, whereas estheticians combat acne and signs of aging with a menu of facials. The Radiant facial, for example, evens out the skin's surface with botanical extracts and the mineral tourmaline, providing a gentler alternative to microdermabrasion or practicing your eskimo-kisses on a tree.
The staff at Sonoma Spa & Salon works to bring aesthetic goals to life beneath hanging lights and powder-blue candles. Hair services frame faces with everything from basic cuts to coloring, highlights, and keratin treatments. In the spa, the team deep cleans with facial treatments including Hydradermie facials, non-surgical chemical peels, and diamond microdermabrasion, which smoothens skin and gives nearby pieces of coal a positive role model. Warm, freshly harvested seaweed envelops bodies during the slimming seaweed-wrap treatment, and the staff also smoothes bodies with waxing.
The Republic of Wellness?s massage therapists come from Brazil, Belarus, and across New England, but they're all united by a single philosophy: the human body can heal itself. In helping it regain its natural balance, they take inspiration from ancient traditions from around the globe, including acupuncture, yoga, Swedish massage, and reflexology, a style that, much like four-limbed applause, places pressure on the extremities. The Quincy studio immediately muffles the worries of the outside world with a waiting room lined with well-loved Oriental rugs, overstuffed chairs, and amber-shaded lamps.
