Soft as Silk Laser's walls are bathed in rich reds and glimmering golds that evoke the robes and crowns of royalty—but it’s the med spa’s roster of aesthetic services that fully convinces clientele that they’re kings and queens. The staff of aestheticians relies on steady hands, keen eyes, and safe, advanced technologies to elevate their customers’ appearances during hair, skin, and lash beautification services. They aim the Palomar laser at skin of any type or tone to remove blonde, red, brown, or black hairs. Their steady hands erase fine lines and sun spots using a crystallized microdermabrasion machine or the PowerDerm Kinetic dermabrasion, which exfoliates with kinetic energy that further helps stimulate lymphatic drainage and tighten face and body skin. Soft as Silk Laser's certified eyelash technicians can also bolster blinks with permanent lash extensions, whose variety of styles can grant eyelids with anything from a subtle, natural look to a red-carpet worthy dose of drama.
Owned by an aesthetics educator, Luminous cultivates skin's natural beauty with an extensive selection of indulgent facials that have garnered the skincare studio multiple nods from the WickedLocal.com Readers Choice Awards over the last three years. The 75-minute Radiance for Thirsty Skin facial ($90) hydrates faces with Dermalogica skincare products and other ingredients, massaging honey into thirsty pores to keep them shiny and fresh. Countenance curators then blanket faces with a warm paraffin mask for an extra layer of hydration, making the Radiance for Thirsty Skin facial an ideal treatment for those with dry skin or those who have dorsal fins. After inundating your visage with a fresh coat of salutary moisture, pick off bristly stragglers with an eyebrow wax ($20) to show clingy hairs the door with a hard-wax agent agreeable to even the most sensitive skin.
After graduating from the Elizabeth Grady School of Esthetics, Jenelle Paris went on to become a certified eyelash extensionist as well as a MAC-trained makeup artist. With this experience, Jenelle has been able to establish Beauty Couture by Jenelle, her intimate boutique spa. At her beauty haven, clients lounge amongst vintage European-inspired décor. Jenelle and her team evoke each client's inner beauty through the aid of aesthetic treatments and massage services. Aestheticians reach for the advanced biotechnology of Neocutis skincare products as they perform peels blended from glycolic acid and enzymes. The Neocutis "Processed Skin Cell Proteins (PSP)" mixture of skin nutrients includes cytokines, growth factors, and antioxidants to achieve optimal results. Beauty Couture also specializes in eyelash extensions. A synthetic silk blend is used to create each mink eyelash extension adhered to the eyelid's original lashes while the spa's resident aesthetic nurse specialist reverses signs of aging with Botox, Belotero, Radiesse, and Juvederm injections.
Founded by Helena and Elie Cohen—a master colorist and stylist, respectively—Ardan Medspa + Salon has earned recurring coverage in publications such as Allure and Boston Common and a variety of Best of Boston awards from Boston Magazine for five straight years. Within the salon, the duo and fellow stylists treat manes to designer cuts, color treatments, and other hair services.
Under a physician's guidance, Clinical Director Susan Fallon and her team also use advanced products in their med-spa services, such as the DermaSweep clinical facial that deeply exfoliates without the crystals of microdermabrasion or the chemical solutions of a peel. Further med-spa services include Vaser, and SmartLipo, the latest medical innovations for body sculpting and fat removal.
The studio surrounds guests with relaxing, warm tones and curved lines that create a sweeping, upward energy, encouraging visitors to release their stress and any helium-filled balloons they carried in.

Laura Kimberley, owner of Suite 10 Medical Aesthetics, says, "It can really change someone's life to look better," and helping people make that transition is her favorite part of the job. She accomplishes this feat by applying her medical knowledge?she's a registered nurse?to skin care and beauty injections. She customizes the skincare compounds she uses to her clients' needs, targeting specific issues like dry skin, pigmentation, rosacea, or acne. She also performs every kind beauty injection, including Botox to smooth features, Juvederm to fight wrinkles, and Radiesse to increase facial volume so you can shout louder.
At age 13, Jacqueline designed a science-fair project focused on age management, having developed a fascination for skincare by watching her mother and grandmother go through their daily beauty regimens. As Jacqueline grew up, she took that passion and became a licensed master aesthetician, opening Jacqueline Jase Face & Body Center in 2009. The center is named in part for her mother and grandmother—Jane and Rose—who Jacqueline names as the two most influential women in her life. Today, Jacqueline fights aging and nourishes skin with facials and herbal wraps, swaddling clients in natural and organic products from brands such as Bioelements. She also applies Nufree Hair Removal to legs and arms to remove unwanted hair, and fastens NovaLash extensions to eyelids to create longer, denser lashes. Realizing a connection between stress and skin deterioration, Jacqueline became a licensed massage therapist in 2010 and now relieves stress and chronic aches with Swedish and deep-tissue modalities.
