"My priceless, one and only face is completely safe in the hands of Dr. Jamie de Rosa on Newbury Street. I went to her for a revision rhinoplasty of my deviated septum...aka... My nose was crooked and I couldn't breathe. It's been almost a year since my nasal surgery and she is still holding my hand, through every follow up visit, with a smile. The deal: she costs a bit more. That is only because she is the best facial plastic surgeon in Boston!"- L.J. / Yelp / Sep 06, 2015
"Just had THE BEST facial of my life with Steven! My face feels RESILIENT I am a brand new woman! Love Dr. Derosa's work and Elizabeth at the front is so welcoming and friendly!"- M.C. / Yelp / Jan 19, 2018
"Nervous? So was I. Never had plastic surgery before in my life. I was a candidate for surgical otoplasty (cosmetic surgery on ears) and wanted to go to the very best there is. I wanted no screw ups and no surprises... Pictures of some cosmetic-surgery-gone-wrong are all over the news, aren't they... I did my research online and by the word of mouth but it wasn't easy and results were ambiguous at best. Then one day I wrote a confidential note to a friend who happens to be a widely respected Head of one of major surgical departments at Mass Eye and Ear. His little note back to me was very brief: Dr. Jaimie DeRosa, Boston. I went with his recommendation and 2 months later had the surgery done at Dr. DeRosa's office on Newbury St. in Boston. As a patient only, in no way being related to or associated with this doctor, I cannot say enough about the brilliant result of the surgery she performed. I'm a very, very happy man indeed and I highly recommend that anybody looking into facial plastic / reconstructive surgery should check her out first! I was not surprised to find out that Dr. DeRosa also performs surgery at the Eye and Ear and that she teaches at Harvard. She just opened her Newbury St. office a few months ago and that's where I was able to reach her. Dr. DeRosa, you rock! Thank you! Roman P. L."- R.L. / Yelp / Nov 22, 2013
"I just want to say a huge thank you to Dr. DeRosa and her team! Everything from my initial consult to the surgery to my follow ups has been a really easy and positive experience for me. I started off looking for a specialized plastic surgeon with experience in facial procedures and rhinoplasty and saw that Dr. DeRosa was one of the head facial plastic surgeons for MEE. During our initial consult, Dr. DeRosa was able to treatment plan with me and answer all my questions thoroughly. She was professional and has a great personality. I never felt like I was being sold a procedure, which has always been one of my priorities when looking for a surgeon. I can't say enough nice things about her staff in the office as well. Everyone is always friendly, professional and knowledgeable. Dr. DeRosa feels like an old friend at this point. As far as my rhinoplasty, I'm really happy with the result! It looks really natural and aesthetically fits my face. My overall experience was really easy and positive and I would highly recommend this office!!"- A.A. / Yelp / Aug 29, 2019
"**UPDATED REVIEW** First, let me say Lauren did an INCREDIBLE job with my dermaplaning and facial. My skin left feeling hydrated and glowing. But, I had booked dermaplaning and a 30 minute facial ($145) and as I was leaving I was told I was being charged for a 60 minute facial ($190) That’s a huge difference in price!! I expressed my displeasure with the miscommunication in price and the staff at DeRossa Clinic went above and beyond to rectify the situation. I highly recommend visiting here, they go the extra mile to make sure their customers are happy and satisfied with all their treatments."- C.M. / Google / Mar 17, 2019
what kinds of facials are there?
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.
