"DeRosa is by far the best place in Boston to get a facial in my experience. The space on Newbury is clean and relaxing, and everyone is incredibly welcoming. Steven's attention to detail and knowledge of skincare is unmatched - the 60 minute facial is worth every penny. I have and will continue to recommend him to all of my friends!"- M.C. / Google / Mar 03, 2020
"I was fortunate to get referred to Dr. DeRosa(from another renowned Doctor). Finding a good doctor is hard to do! I was looking for a natural look for my eyes and some! Dr. DeRosa did an upper eye lift at her office that was convenient and painless. The results were exactly what I expected. After, I’ve had injectables and facials that has improved my appearance and confidence. I highly recommend Dr DeRosa and her staff!! Ive been a patient for many years. You won't be sorry."- K.H. / Google / Mar 03, 2020
"I am here to preach the gospel of the DeRosa Clinic.My story: I moved to Boston for graduate school, and I asked my esteemed SF-based doctor for a recommendation in the Boston area, and he directed me to Dr. DeRosa. I now live in Washington, DC, and I trust Dr. DeRosa so much that I called her office for dermatologist contacts in DC. How I wish I still lived in Boston so I could continue seeing Dr. DeRosa!My experience: Walking into the DeRosa clinic was like getting a much welcome dose of sunshine. The women staffing the front desk were always extremely warm and welcoming. Being so far from home, I felt well attended to and well taken care of. As I write this, I miss them so much!Dr. DeRosa was beyond fantastic. She not only addressed every concern of mine, no matter how trivial (eg, the tiniest skin irritation), but she did so with aplomb, grace, and vivacity. And I mean what I say. Dr. DeRosa was not only an extremely skilled doctor, but she was also unbelievably charismatic and caring. I left her offices, not only with my health concerns addressed, but with Soul Cycle class recommendations and networking tips!On-site, Dr. DeRosa also has the most skilled aesthetician. I literally would go from Dr. DeRosa’s office, where she would pinpoint a skin issue, to the room next door, where an aesthetician would perform a rejuvenating facial. I would look at my skin the next day, and it would look brand-spanking new. I don’t think anyone can compete with that.I now live in Washington, DC for work, and I must confess, I miss Dr. DeRosa, her staff, and the office IMMENSELY. For those of you who are close enough to be able to have De. DeRosa as your doctor, you couldn’t be more lucky!"- A.P. / Yelp / Jan 08, 2021
"Beyond pleased with Dr. DeRosa and her team! From the initial consultation to the surgery and beyond. My daughter had otoplasty and the whole it was a very easy experience and she is very pleased with the outcome. Dr. DeRosa was able to answer all my and my daughter’s questions thoroughly and kept her at ease the whole time. It is so convenient that they are able to do the surgery right in the office without needing to go to a hospital, especially now with the hospitals so crowded.The whole staff is terrific, there were no wait times for appointments, everything was done efficiently, but we never felt rushed.If you are looking to have your skin feel rejuvenated I have also been to the clinic for a facial and highly recommend the experience. Both my daughter and I highly recommend Dr. DeRosa and the whole staff at the DeRosa Clinic."- M.O. / Yelp / Jan 18, 2021
"When I was 18 years old I broke my nose. I never did anything about it at the time Because it never really look that bad. As I got older it started looking worse to me my bridge looked really flat and it seem like the bones were wider possibly just the aging process. When I really noticed was in pictures and it really bothered me and I was constantly trying to contour my nose to make it look narrow. Most people didn't even notice but it really bothered me. I finally decided to get an opinion on what it would entail to fix it. I went to three different plastic surgeons. I finally decided on Jaime DeRosa at the Derosa clinic in Boston. Right away after consulting with her I knew she was the right surgeon. She has such an amazing personality and she is a double certified facial plastic surgeon. I just knew I was in good hands. I had the procedure done yesterday and I am feeling great today I was even able to walk the dogs early this morning at 6:30 AM. Her husband is the anesthesiologist and they both made me feel so relaxed and comfortable before and after the procedure. I couldn't have asked for a better pair!"- NC / Other / Apr 02, 2021

30 Minute Facial
Our 30 Minute Facial is perfect for anyone who needs a quick touch up. Based upon what your skin requires, 2-3 facial treatments can be performed to restore a radiant glow.
60 Minute Facial
Our 60 minute custom facial starts with a gentle but thorough cleansing of the skin to remove all makeup and prep the skin for treatment. The skin is analyzed to determine the correct treatment. Manual extractions are performed to remove pore-clogging debris and oils. Next the skin is disinfected to kill bacteria and improve blood circulation. At this time the skin is ready for derma planing, which is a gentle form of exfoliation using a small tool to removes dead skin cells and vellus hair, also known as "peach fuzz". Based upon the skin type and the needs of the skin, additional treatment options are performed, which may include a superficial chemical peel, ultrasonic microdermabrasion, collagen mask, LED light therapy, and lymphatic drainage. The facial is completed with a toner, serum, moisturizer, and of course sunscreen.
60 Minute Concentrated Cell and Peptide Facial
Our Concentrated Cell & Peptide facial incorporates the use of viable cells, peptides, and amino acids to help increase one's own collagen and elastin. Microencapsulated, these ingredients remain active and provide better absorption to smooth, repair and restore the skin. The Concentrated Cell and Peptide facial treatment starts with a gentle polishing gelee to dislodge makeup and oils. A dual action exfoliator stimulates and preps the skin for the treatment. Manual extractions may be performed and then skin is disinfected. Dermaplaning or microdermabrasion is then performed, and then a chemical exfoliant is used to brighten the skin, followed by lymphatic drainage to reduce puffiness and eliminate toxins. Several layers of harvested cells and peptides are penetrated into the skin with a ultrasonic device. A light massage helps boost hydration, followed by a hydrating and brightening mask combined with LED light therapy to calm, soothe, and rebalance the skin. Once the mask is removed, the serum from the mask is massaged into the skin to further nourish the skin. To seal all this goodness into the skin, a moisturizer and sunscreen are applied.
