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.

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.
