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.
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.
At A Beautiful You, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Elliot Lach leads a team of specialists in fostering youthful appearances with an arsenal of noninvasive treatments. Dr. Lach is the inventor of numerous types of lasers, including SmoothShapes, which helps to rid bodies of cellulite. The staff also wields lasers to vaporize any unwanted hair, tattoos, or sun spots marring the skin, and they also offer Vaser, as well as Laser lipo-sculpting and Botox. When not fending off wrinkles with dermal fillers or stop signs, the staff is readying clients for at-home maintenance with an inventory of skincare products from ZO Skin Health, Dermalogica, Obagi, and Vivité.
The licensed professionals at Laser Skin Care Solutions buttress crumbling facades with a combination of contemporary rejuvenation techniques. Buff expression makers to a smooth, reflective finish with the DermaSound facial, in which dermal detailers wield low-frequency sound waves to exfoliate and intensify the peeling action of applied chemical solutions. After coating the face in water, vibrations set the liquid molecules spinning rapidly, like an army of microscopic Tasmanian devils lifting away oil, dirt, and cellular debris. All skin types and conditions can benefit from the stimulation of collagen and new cells. Those who are already exfoliated or are allergic to water can eliminate frown lines and eyebrow dimpling with 50 units of Dysport. This prescription injection is administered by a registered nurse and shows apparent improvement of saggy skin and wrinkles within three days. Call to schedule an appointment.
Walking through the minimal, dimly lit interiors of Invidia Salon and Spa may feel like walking through a dream. Ultramodern floral wall sconces and chandeliers fashioned from branches illuminate hardwood-floored hallways that split off into dark rooms filled with plush couches. In the central hall, studio lights cast dramatic beams onto swiveling salon chairs positioned in front of floor-to-ceiling mirrors, each aligned in two rows flanking a central stone fireplace.
Here in the multimillion dollar 10,000-square-foot facility, stylists sculpt new ’dos and colorists add hues to locks. Aestheticians smooth skin with customizable facials rich in vitamins and natural extracts, and laser technicians boost collagen with LED light therapy and laser facials.
In private spa rooms, equipped with fireplaces and temperature-controlled beds, therapists imbue a sense of calm with massages and Reiki. In the Vichy shower, clients treated with mud or fruit body wraps recline on a cushioned bed while multiple showerheads work to clean their skin.
