Complimenting Christa's lengthy experience and skills are an equally talented staff that includes one of Citron's stellar estheticians, Amanda.

Citron is an iconic citrus fruit that's captivated noses since antiquity with its fresh, lively scent. Some of the fruit's aromatic qualities must've imprinted themselves on the technicians and stylists behind Citron, the Wayland Square spa known for its rejuvenating treatments. Here, facials powered by healing botanicals reverse the signs of everything from aging to acne, restoring youthful glow and suppleness along the way. They're joined by a full host of massages, body treatments, and even med-spa services such as laser hair removal. All aesthetic laser treatments are performed using the Cynosure Elite Laser. The Elite laser addresses a combination of cosmetic issues such as hair removal on all skin types, treatment of pigmentation, redness, and wrinkles. Even the smallest details earn technicians' undivided attention; at the nail bar, they grace hands and feet with a blend of lasting color and therapeutic treatments.
The aesthetic is decidedly minimalist—a few padded leather chairs, a tasteful rug, a potted plant here and there. But the services are as complex as the decor is simple. Most services rely on some type of laser work, from sessions with the i-Lipo fat-reduction system to treatments that remove moles, hair, and spider veins. Unlike at some centers, medical director Dr. Luciano Sztulman often becomes directly involved in these treatments, except for the apple-related services that keep doctors away.
Many an aesthetic problem has yielded to Norma Cataldo, the clinical director of Cosmetic Laser Solutions. She has been fixing dermal flaws with noninvasive beams of light for more than 10 years, remedying conditions such as wrinkles, sun spots, cellulite, and spider veins.
At the clinic, she is supported by Dr. Patrick Marasco, a board-certified plastic surgeon. With their combined skills, they are able to treat patients to more invasive procedures in their in-office surgical suite as well as lively harmonies over the intercom system.

Do you agree with the phrase "beauty is on the inside?" Why or why not?
Beauty is how your look and attitude is perceived by those around you. When you feel good about how you look and feel then the thoughts and opinions of others will follow.
How did you get started in the beauty industry? Did you have an "ah-ha" moment in life?
We have helped patients in sickness and in health. While we cannot remove all the things that add stress and worry to peoples lives, we find it so rewarding to help someone look and feel better. It makes us feel great just making our patients feel great.
Lasers can accomplish more than just long-lasting hair removal. At Aesthetic Laser Treatment Center, staffers depend upon them for almost every aesthetic treatment. Yes, one of those treatments is hair removal, but the list also includes diminishing cellulite and wrinkles, eliminating pigmented lesions, and downplaying the appearance of spider veins. The staffers sometimes abandon lasers all together and instead opt for dermal fillers or a chemical peel to restore skin.
Rejuvaderm’s expert staff of licensed aestheticians promotes pulchritude with a range of skin-enhancing services. The glycolic peel utilizes a safe chemical solution that, when applied, causes the face’s dead skin cells to slough away ($125). Eradicating these dead skin cells will smooth out the skin’s texture, reduce wrinkles, and improve its overall appearance, resulting in a radiating glow without the hassle of training lightning bugs to follow you around in a constant swarm. The Visia complexion analysis ($75) is a computer-calculated skin scrutinization that plots results as a visual diagram, enabling each person's pelt to compare itself to thousands of others of the same age and skin type. The data can then be used to help plan and monitor a proper anti-aging treatment, helping patients gird themselves against the ravages of Father Time and his magical face-smooshing ray gun.
