All in One Laser's specialists earned the top spot for laser hair removal in Boston from CityVoter three years in a row. Armed with the GentleMax laser system—which contains both an Alexandrite and a YAG laser for lighter or darker skin, respectively—they scan a range of body areas to eradicate hair, making shaving, waxing, or giving stubble the evil eye a thing of the past. They also use lasers for other services including spider-vein reduction, age- and sunspot removal, and skin rejuvenation and wrinkle reduction.
The recipe for beautiful skin is simple: combine attentive care with innovative technology. At least that's the view of L'Essentiel's Dr. Vatche Seraderian and Susanna Barmakian. They draw from a well-curated collection of epidermal therapies to create custom regimens for their clients, saving skin from the embarrassment of arriving at parties with identical glows. Six different chemical peels, four injected dermal fillers, and two means to permanent hairlessness form the crux of the spa's smoothing repertoire.
With more than 40 years of combined experience, the clinical staff at Finesse Cosmetic Laser & Lipo Center works to beautify faces and bodies with a wide range of medical aesthetic procedures. Medical director and founder Dr. Peter Kruy performs laser- and ultrasound-assisted liposuction designed for reduced trauma and faster recovery times, while a team of nurses and medical aestheticians handles non-invasive treatments such as VelaShape body contouring or laser hair removal. The staff prioritizes client comfort by listening carefully to questions and concerns, and by outfitting their well-appointed waiting room with cushy chairs, a burbling wall fountain, and a choir of whales crooning lullabies.
Licensed nurse and aesthetician Jean Donoghue boasts more than 20 years of laser and skincare experience. Her medical-grade skincare repertoire includes microdermabrasion and laser services such as hair removal, skin tightening, tattoo removal, and spider-vein removal. Jean is also an injection specialist, able to treat patients with facial injectables such as Botox, Juvéderm, and Radiesse to help keep faces looking as young as a baby's employee ID.
While many laser-hair-removal spas carry only one laser system, Albany Laser Spa keeps an arsenal. When consulting with a new client, the spa's technicians will evaluate skin and hair type to determine which of the FDA-approved systems will best suit him or her. Also, the staff is LaserFast certified to use the proprietary system that ameliorates the laser's sting with a pulse of cool air, so the technician doesn't have to blow on it.
Before joining forces to fight spider and varicose veins, the board-certified radiologists at North Bridge Vein Care all honed their skills at Harvard teaching hospitals. This training, along with other professional endeavors, familiarized them with medical intricacies such as interpreting ultrasound images, determining if blood is flowing through the body in a healthy manner, and assessing whether vessels are robust. Now, they use this know-how to treat compromised veins—which are often unsightly and painful—with methods such as sclerotherapy, endovenous laser treatments, and ambulatory phlebectomy.
