The staff members at Go Platinum Salon and Medspa haven't stopped learning since they graduated from school. By focusing on continuing-education courses and staying abreast of new treatments, they have cultivated a med-spa service list that includes dermal fillers to reduce age lines, laser treatments to remove unwanted body hair, and Image Skincare chemical peels to revivify sagging skin. They also perform traditional spa services to give full-body glows via personalized facials and Aviva sunless spray tanning. They pamper scalps with haircuts and color treatments to create headscapes more dazzling than a mop dipped in glitter and tied around one’s chin. The salon also carries a full array of Jane Iredale Cosmetics so that their clients can beautify themselves at home.
Owners Alaina Trocano and Diane Mahoney aim to leave clients looking and smelling as good as the inside of Soma Day Spa. Set between the Wakefield MBTA station and serene Lake Quannapowitt, the warmly decorated space fills with the aromas of pumpkin, chocolate, shea butter, and other natural ingredients during indulgent facials and body treatments. But these services aren't just a feast for the senses or an inspiration for what kind of cookies to pick up on the way home. Aestheticians can also customize treatments to address skin concerns such as acne, rosacea, oiliness, or the effects of age.
Pamper Me Skin Care’s epidermis experts combine elements of nature and modern technology to restore skin’s youthful allure. The spa’s menu of more than 25 facial treatments renews nose-and-cheek placeholders with natural ingredients—such as pineapple enzymes, goat's milk, and lavender oil—or fights signs of aging with DermaSound’s ultrasonic waves and LED light therapy. For especially troubled skin, aestheticians turn treatments up a notch with glycolic- and lactic-acid peels, whose deep exfoliation can whittle a rough-skinned alligator into a smooth dolphin. Pamper Me Skin Care’s team also employs products from its own skincare line, as well as Rhonda Allison and GlyMed Plus.
Aside from facial treatments, Sudatonic infrared body wraps slim down silhouettes, and waxing and IPL hair-removal sessions oust unwanted fuzz and improve the body’s aerodynamics for faster street-luge-to-work times. Guests can also indulge in all-day pampering packages or mix-and-match treatments for custom relaxation sessions.
Pino Milano, the owner and master stylist at Belvedere Salon and Spa, draws from 30 years of hairstyling experience to craft designer haircuts and imbue flattering color. A native of Italy, Pino brings a touch of European style to his salon, where an equally impressive roster of master stylists and aestheticians with training in Europe, New York, and Boston practice their respective fields of expertise. The salon experts call on formulas by Matrix, Moroccanoil, and Crew to forge elegant new hairstyles, and nail and skin specialists perform facials, waxing services, and luxurious mani-pedis with reflexology treatments and sea-salt scrubs.
