The knowledgeable aestheticians at Sky Skin Center fend off unwanted follicles, signs of aging, and skin conditions with an assortment of spa and laser treatments. During laser hair-removal sessions, strand assassins take aim at unsightly bristles with Candela GentleMax or Palomar lasers, allowing patients to become perfectly drag-free for Olympic slip 'n' slide time trials. Med-spa treatments—such as chemical peels, photofacials, vascular treatments, and microdermabrasion—tackle conditions as varied as rosacea, acne scarring, and sun damage. Skin-lift injections, including Botox, Juvéderm, and Radiesse, restore visages' youthful appearance, and soothing facials and massages ease muscle tension caused by trying to dead-lift 50-pound sunglasses.
At Boston Cosmetic and Laser Center, clients can literally change before their own eyes. Here, a staff of professional beauty experts perform services designed to enhance appearances without invasive surgery. Many treatments focus on reversing signs of aging?injections of Botox, for example, relax wrinkle-causing muscles, while Ultherapy tones the face and neck with ultrasound energy and microscopic barbells. Other options, including laser hair removal and VelaShape body-contouring, focus on fine-tuning torsos and limbs.
True to its name, Fresh Start Skincare & Laser Tattoo Removal Specialists provides specialized skincare treatments and safely, permanently remove tattoos. Technicians certified by the National Laser Institute clear away unwanted tattoos with lasers that are gentle enough to leave skin undamaged but strong enough to break down even stubborn ink colors such as green, blue, and black.
On the skincare side, staffers perform treatments that can take years off the face. Microdermabrasion and microneedling treatments restore a youthful glow to skin, and Hydrafacial treatments use water to cleanse the skin and gently improve its texture.

At Flawless MedSpa, the staff creates a nurturing environment where state-of-the-art cosmetic procedures pair with a spa-like emphasis on patient comfort. Her team includes medical director Dr. Nathalie Celestin, Lisa Allison RN, and aestheticians Carol Alessandro and Katie Casey, and together they pair their advanced knowledge of skincare concerns to clear complexions of everything from unwanted hair and unwelcome veins to wrinkles that showed up uninvited and claimed squatters rights. Injections of Botox, Juvederm, and Radiesse temporarily diminish unflattering folds, and facials?fueled by Obagi and Jan Marini skincare products?smooth complexions with formulas specifically tailored to treat rosacea, acne, and premature aging. Laser technology plays a starring role in redness-conquering photofacials, as well as the FDA-cleared i-Lipo system, which works to remove fat from the arms, legs, hips, and anywhere else that isn't responding well to diet, exercise, or the silent treatment.
The staff of board-certified vascular avengers at VeinSolutions tailor their cosmetic procedures to each patient's individual needs, refurbishing frowning frontispieces and minimizing the appearance of unsightly spider veins. Sclerotherapy treatments take place in a private, comfortable office; doctors employ a very fine needle to inject 18 cc's of an FDA-approved solution into the voracious vein and start the divorce proceedings. Following the injection, legs don a pair of compression hose for several days, which help fuse the damaged vein walls and reassure nervous gams with a round-the-clock bear hug. Over time, the appearance of affronting arachno-capillaries diminishes as the body reabsorbs them. With little to no down time, clients can typically resume their normal day-to-day activities right away, although heavy exercise and prolonged sitting, standing, or crawling to avoid unfriendly fire is discouraged for the first three days post-treatment.
Skin Deep wields an arsenal of high-tech exterior enhancers to solve an array of aesthetic conundrums. Laser hair reduction quickly eliminates unwanted down from fur-festooned body parts with the help of a Lumenis LightSheer Duet machine. The procedure starts with a thorough cleaning of the relevant area to remove dirt and stubborn body barnacles, after which the laser takes aim at the offending follicles, vaporizing the carbon particles in hair-growing glands while leaving surrounding cells untouched. Because the laser acts selectively, targeting only active hair follicles, there is very little skin irritation and no need for recovery time, unlike hair removal conducted via lawn mower. The treatment is effective for darker skin types that may be ineligible for other types of laser therapy. Optimal efficacy is usually reached after five to seven treatments, though this may vary depending on the density of the hair, skin tone, and each follicle’s emotional readiness to accept early retirement. Customers should shave the target area prior to their appointment.
