Dr. Martin E. Cutler’s more than 30 year career is defined by his mastery of new technology. In the ‘70s, he was one of the first area doctors to offer no-stitch cataract lens replacement. Today, he helps patients reduce their dependence on glasses with LASIK and makes reading glasses obsolete with conductive keratoplasty, the first FDA-approved procedure that sharpens one’s up-close vision and makes Moby Dick easier to understand.
Alongside Dr. Cutler’s opthalmology center stands a medical spa staffed by licensed aestheticians. With the aid of the Palomar StarLux system, they harness the power of intense pulse light to oust unwanted fuzz from anywhere on the body. They also pair facials with botanical Nelly de Vuyst products and deep-clean pores with PCA chemical peels, and offer free skin analyses to help patients find the best course of treatment or the best way to flaunt a Jay Leno–shaped birthmark.
The Zinnia flower that serves as Elite Medspa & Wellness’ logo may symbolize memories, but their powerful SCITON laser actually makes memories—out of wrinkles, spider veins, and unwanted hair, that is. Medical director, and Board certified and Harvard trained plastic surgeon, Dr. Joseph Russo chose the SCITON laser for a slew of reasons. Not only is it completely capable of handling a rogues gallery of cosmetic complaints, but it dispatches them with the quickness. Its high-speed scanner—which allows the laser to pack a wallop without damaging tissue—is paired up with a computer-guidance system that evenly distributes heat and teaches the laser how to play chess when the office closes for the night.
But the medspa is more than just technology. The staff also works with time-honored treatments to beautify faces, such as chemical peels, Botox, and Juvederm. They even embrace downright ancient techniques, such as hot-stone massage and aromatherapy.
Lasers, chemical peels, and injectables are the primary anti-aging instruments in Arlington Medical Aesthetics’ beautifying arsenal. The staff, consisting of clinicians and a laser technician, is devoted to customizing each treatment to clients’ individual needs, whether they want to address bothersome wrinkles or feed a fascination with lasers born from a past life as a cat. The team offers a full range of aesthetic services, banishing fine lines with products such as Botox and Juvéderm, smoothing and tightening skin with chemical peels and microdermabrasion, and keeping complexions perpetually fuzz-free with laser hair removal.
With more than 12,000 successful LASIK and refractive procedures performed to date, Dr. Nilesh M. Sheth continues to practice his vision-boosting craft with well-honed expertise. Famous public figures have restored their sight under his steady hand, including Law & Order actor John Fiore, U.S. Senator Scott Brown, Boston Celtics superstar and two-time elementary-school class president Jo Jo White. Together with TPA-certified optometrist Dr. Audra Rowse, Dr. Sheth honors the Sheth-Horsley Eye Center’s half century of high-quality eye care with treatments ranging from advanced cataract surgery, cosmetic procedures to repair droopy eyes and wrinkles, and corrective surgeries to sharpen vision without the need for glasses or contacts.
The doctor is aided in his fight against astigmatism, cataracts, nearsightedness, and farsightedness with leading edge high tech tools including: VISX S4 excimer lasers, Custom Wavefront instruments, and IFS intralase femtosecond lasers.
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 aestheticians at Forever Young Day Spa & Laser Center seamlessly integrate medical technology into treatments that balance both skin and body. To ensure that the journey toward hair-free limbs and winkle-free brows is safe and efficient, the team relies on FDA-cleared lasers and cosmetic injections. Meanwhile, nimble hands wield hair-fine acupuncture needles, deliver flowing effleurage strokes, and place hot stones with precision to reap both physical and mental benefits. Traditional facials deploy serums rich in botanically derived antioxidants and vitamins from skincare lines such as Credentials to empty pores and rejuvenate complexions. More advanced counterparts use low-level electrical and sonic frequencies to boost skin elasticity and rid the dermal surface of bacteria and pigmentation.
