what is a facial?
A home skin care routine with good products is important to keep a healthy complexion, but occasionally, you may want better results with a professional facial. Customized for the needs and concerns of your skin, our doctors suggest regular, professional Oxygeneo™ facials for Boston, MA patients to keep their skin clear and healthy. After a thorough consultation to determine both visible and hidden damage, we use the best medical-grade products and facial techniques to help rejuvenate your complexion. If you really want to pamper your skin, customize your results by adding another treatment, such as a chemical peel, microdermabrasion, or an injectable filler. Make an appointment to get a custom, professional facial at DeRosa Center Facial Plastic Surgery & Med Spa to elevate the beauty and health of your skin.
"Dr Derosa is always the best in class. Never too much product, but always enough product to be affective. I’ve also seen other technicians and the thoughtful application is consistent. The facials are also a great value. Each time I see a noticeable difference in skin tone and youthfulness. The advice I get for improvements is also valuable and intentional and not an up-sell. I’ve appreciated the clinic for over ten years and will continue to do so until I am old and NOT WRINKLY!"- T.C. / Google / Nov 16, 2022
"I love this place. The nurses are fabulous-they are skilled and detail oriented. The receptionists are amazing! So incredibly smart and helpful. I’m writing an addendum to my first review because I am SO HAPPY! Over the course of the past 6 months I have seen both Julia and Nicole for almost monthly appointments for a variety of things (filler, Botox, and recently a Geneo facial). Both women are incredibly knowledgeable, skilled and have brought me results that are above and beyond my expectations. The level of skill, expertise, and the extraordinary “bedside manner” of the people at DeRosa is remarkable and the best I’ve experienced anywhere."- J.O. / Google / Jan 21, 2023
"I needed to have my entire nose restructured. I was very apprehensive about going to a location that was not “in” one of the major Boston hospitals. In the end, after many consults elsewhere and recommendations from top Boston MD’s, I decided to move ahead w Dr. DeRosa and have her do the procedure in her Newbury Street surgical center. The procedure went perfectly, I felt so at ease and the results are just perfection. She is beyond talented. I feel so lucky to have been her patient. I go to her office now too for all my facials- the best!"- E.S. / Google / Jan 27, 2023
"I have been going to the Med Spa for the past couple of years, and I couldn't be happier with the results. The minute I walk through the door I am always greeted by their professional and friendly staff. A big shout out to Colleen and Meg for making the first impression at DeRosa warm and friendly. They are always personable and very helpful. Steven, the lead asthetician, is amazing! He is extremely knowledgeable and always provides the best facial treatments. My skin is brighter, smoother and softer. Nurse Nicole is highly skilled and very professional. I would highly recommend DeRosa for any and all skincare needs."- M.C. / Google / Feb 23, 2023
"Excellent experience here! The staff is wonderful very knowledgeable and helpful. The office is very clean. Dr.DeRosa is absolutely wonderful to work with. You get treated like royalty here. I had a procedure done under anesthesia and it was a great experience from start to finish. There are two offices one in Boston and one in Palm Beach Florida. I would definitely go back and get a facial next."- M. / Google / Mar 17, 2023
