If the staff at All Care Laser Center exudes extreme confidence with a laser, it’s because they have been honing their skills since the FDA greenlighted the technology for aesthetic use in the ‘90s. The staff's laser techs, working alongside a medical aesthetician, harness light for a wide range of anti-aging and beautifying services. Though the end result of each treatment varies––from smoothing cellulite to ousting unwanted hair to discovering the true meaning of friendship––each one draws upon modern, quality equipment. Whereas the Affirm anti-aging workstation neutralizes wrinkles and scars, the VelaShape’s vacuum and rolling fixtures use heat to deflate fat cells. Non-laser treatments such as Botox, microdermabrasion facials, and White Brilliance teeth whitening put the final flourishes on extreme makeovers.
A Center for Aesthetic Surgery's Dr. Stephen Scully helms a team of technicians who refurbish visages with 30-minute microdermabrasion sessions. During the noninvasive treatment, a technician smoothes a wand across the skin to blast away dead skin cells with aluminum-oxide crystals. The gentle resurfacing gives weary faces a new lease on life by eliminating acne, fine lines, and blemishes and sloughing off sequins from last year's masquerade ball. Boasting bolstered collagen and elastin production, skin leaves the treatment looking softer, smoother, and more youthful. With little to no downtime needed, patients can immediately return to their normal day-to-day activities, relishing in passersby exclaiming, "Look at that infant doing its own grocery shopping!"

Desneige Acupuncture and Allergy Center's medical director, registered nurse Desneige Datillo, began her career working in traditional medicine in the intensive care units and emergency rooms in Boston-area hospitals. But after finding that acupuncture had successfully treated a sports-related injury and her sleep difficulties, she knew she wanted to incorporate Eastern medicine practices with her traditional Western background, and so she studied to become a licensed acupuncturist.
Armed with her knowledge of integrated medicine, Datillo opened her Essential Energetics Clinic in 1994 to provide patients with a comprehensive way to stay healthy without the hassle of always wearing a fruit hat. Though she's revamped and renamed her practice since then, she continues to bolster patients' health with acupuncture energy therapy, which uses hair-thin needles to help patients manage pain, enhance fertility, and treat nicotine addictions.
As a certified laser specialist, Datillo can also use cold lasers to activate acupressure points or shrink fat cells. During many treatments, fully clothed patients lie atop a treatment table equipped with soothing amenities, including a soft blanket, heat lamp, eye mask, and notes of encouragement from their mothers.

Aided by the power of lasers, he can also help clients shed unwanted adipose with Zerona laser treatments or Lipo-Light LED sessions.
