Sunlight, Dark Spots and You - Brookline, MA

Darren Kincaid - Monday, September 21, 2015

By: Jennifer Sullivan, Dream Spa Medical

We hope everyone has had a beautiful summer filled with clambakes, fireworks and pleasure cruises. No matter how you spent your summer, some time in the sun is inevitable; no matter how you protect yourself from the sun, you are affected by it. Any exposure to the sun has permanent effects on the pigment in your skin. Whether you look tan or not, it has already happened. Over time this leads to freckling, sun spots and premature aging. Yikes!

We must continue to live our lives to fullest so the question is not “How do I avoid this?” because you can’t; the question must be “How can this be helped?”. This is where the miracle of medical esthetics comes into play…

At Dream Spa Medical, we have a variety of treatments targeted towards treating the effects of sun damage. We offer medical facials, laser treatments, peels and home-care that are second-to-none in VISIBLY REDUCING the effects of sun damage. Imagine the beautiful face you see in the mirror being brighter, more clear, more even…yes, please.

We are commemorating the end of summer with our Smooth Glowing Skin promotion. Come in for our state-of-the-artlaser photo facial to get rid of that summer pigment and you will receive 15% off your next Botox service. Feeling your best is a sure-fire way to make the change of seasons a piece of cake.

Painless Tattoo Removal - Brookline, MA

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, September 08, 2015

By: Jennifer Sullivan, Dream Spa Medical

Tattoos and tattoo removal have come a long way. Tattoos have a long history in many cultures; they have appeared as cultural rites of passage, bold forms of self-expression and also as a means of punishment. Tattoos used to set one apart from the crowd but nowadays it is quite ordinary to have one or many. Just this morning on channel 7 news, Joe Amorosino did a cooking segment with his mom in their home and I suppose I shouldn’t have been as surprised as I was to see him in a golf shirt, both forearms covered in ink.

I often admire the tattoos of others but I have found out that, just like many popular things, it is not something that is right for me; unfortunately, it took me getting 4 tattoos to know this to be true. Up until recently, I had come to terms with the fact that I am stuck with it, so to speak. I knew that tattoo removal was a thing but I have never seen results which motivated me to endure the time and expense, not to mention it is extremely painful!

Well, it is a new day and now we offer “painless tattoo removal” at Dream Spa Medical. We are the first in the region to offer the Enlighten laser for tattoo removal and the results are incredible! We are combining this with numbing injections so what used to be a torture session is now less-stress than getting your teeth cleaned. The Enlighten laser requires less treatments and results in more complete removal of tattoos than has ever been seen before. I have begun the process of removing 3 out of 4 of my tattoos and I am thrilled to say the very least. One treatment has significantly faded my multi-colored tattoos. They are large and quite dark but the treatment was way less than an hour and it didn’t hurt a bit!

Last Week I got a Hydrafacial - Brookline, MA

Joseph Coupal - Monday, August 24, 2015

By: Diana Brouillard, Dream Spa Medical Owner and Business Manager



Last week I got a Hydrafacial and although I have had them before, in addition to laser treatments, chemical peels, etc. etc…. I really felt a new appreciation for the Hydrafacial. I have never had problems with my skin and lately I have had some minor break outs and blotchiness. My bronzer looked patchy, my skin looked dull and the few pimples I had come out really made me feel unlike my usual self.

I am at Dream Spa Medical everyday (I kind of have to be, I’m one of the owners and I manage the place) and I see dozens of Hydrafacial appointments in the schedule everyday..but for some reason this simple yet amazing treatment just didn’t occur to me. Once of my aestheticians suggested a Hydrafacial and after the treatment I fell in love all over again.

My skin felt refreshed and rejuvenated. My makeup went on like silk the next day. I have been getting compliments on how good I look all week and all weekend. I look in the mirror and see how healthy and glowing my skin looks and I love it. It’s so simple and I give skincare advice all around town and to all of The Dream Spa Medical clients I come in contact with, but when it came to my own skin, I was the one taking the advice from my aesthetician.

I came to the conclusion that a Hydrafacial is a necessary and amazing maintenance treatment that should be done once a month or every 6 weeks. It just gives life and luster to your skin and you feel like yourself again. Especially after the summer heat that makes your face feel rough and patchy, a Hydrafacial is exactly the solution. This is the last week Dream Spa Medical is giving away a FREE sunscreen with the Hydrafacial treatment, so come in for yours before the promotion is over!

Dream Spa Medical Gets Ground Breaking Results with PRP Microneedling!

Diana Brouillard - Monday, August 17, 2015

Dream Spa Medical introduced microneedling into the practice in the beginning of June 2015 and in just a short 3 months has done over 20 treatments.  Microneedling with platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is great for Acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, overall facial rejuvenation, dark circles and hair restoration.  

The concept of using PRP for wound and soft tissue healing has been around since World War 2 and it makes sense that it is now being widely incorporated in aesthetics.  PRP carries the most nutrient rich part of the blood that is responsible for releasing growth factors that recruit and increase the production of reparative cells.  While it’s been used in orthopedic medicine to increase production of reparative cells in the areas of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles, and joints; it is now being used in aesthetics to increase reparative cells in the areas of collagen, elastin and hair follicles. 

That’s how we are able to so successfully treat acne scars, reduce wrinkles and grow new hair.  We are just taking the medical concept of drawing the patient’s own blood, spinning it down to get the best, nutrient-rich part of this blood and infusing it into areas that have slowed reproduction or have been damaged.  With age, that means collagen production and thinning hair follicles.  In the case of acne scarring, we are repairing damaged tissue in the skin that was affected by acne deep within the layers of the skin.

If you feel that microneedling might be a good solution to your anti-aging or cosmetic concerns, contact us and schedule a free consultation.  We are currently running a special until the end of August on Microneedling with PRP for an introductory special price of $350 (regular $600).  Take advantage now before the price goes up at the end of the summer!

Non-surgical Hair Restoration: A New Results-Based Innovation - Brookline, MA

Diana Brouillard - Wednesday, July 29, 2015

Dream Spa Medical uses an innovative technology called Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Microneedling in order to non-surgically implant your body's own growth factors to areas of hair loss and stimulate hair growth in these regions. Microneedling with PRP is able to restore hair growth for clients who have the following conditions:

  1. Male Pattern Hair Loss – especially in the early stages of balding, or anytime there is a lot of thinning hair on the scalp
  2. Female Pattern Hair Loss – at all stages of hair loss
  3. Hypotrichosis (fine/reduced hairs) of the eyebrows or beard
  4. Alopecia Areata (bald patches on the head or beard)
  5. Metabolic causes of hair loss – iron deficiency and medication induced hair loss
  6. Chemotherapy induced hair loss

How PRP Works For Non-Surgical Hair Restoration

PRP is a nutrient rich substance produce by the body and can be extracted by drawing a small amount of blood (a blood sample equivalent to approximately the amount required to a basic lab test) and putting it into a special centrifuge that spins the blood at the necessary speed to separate out the PRP.

The PRP is then used in combination with an FDA approved medical grade device  which is used to create superficial micro-channels in the areas of hair loss through which PRP enters the deeper layers of the skin and infuses nutrients and growth factors into hair follicles.  The application of PRP causes miniaturized hair follicles to become healthier and larger, producing more robust hair growth.  If used in combination with specialized RevivogenMD homecare products (Shampoo, Conditioner and Serum), incredible results can be achieved.  Take a look at some before and after photos below.

The recovery from PRP requires very minimal downtime. Some mild redness of the treated area(s) is occasionally seen 4-6 hours after the treatment. This is normal and will resolve in 48 hours.

Two treatments are recommended 4- 6 months apart and annual maintenance once per year will help re-stimulate growth and maintain results.

New hair growth can be seen as early as 2 weeks (if using homecare products in conjunction with treatment), but is typically evident between 5-8 months and will continue to improve up to a year after treatment.

Summer Skin: Maintain a Healthy Glow - Brookline, MA

Joseph Coupal - Friday, July 10, 2015

By: Leah Mofford, Medical Aesthetician







Summer…. Time for fun, sun, relaxing and recharging. Time for sunkissed hair, glowing skin, and those perfectly manicured fun colored toes. Well here at Dream Spa Medical we want to ensure that your glowing skin lasts all year long.

Here in New England we definitely treasure these short few months. So it is understandable that during the fun summer season, our skin sometimes gets put on the back burner (no pun intended). Who feels like sitting inside on a beautiful day? Or having one more appointment after you have worked all day, picked the kids up from camp, and are counting down the seconds when you can sit on the deck and soak up the sunset. But let me tell you the summer months are exactly when we do not want to be neglecting our skin. Believe it or not, we do a lot of damage to our skin during the sunny days running errands, or sitting at the beach (even with our sunscreen on!). Did you know that the sand and all the build up from heavy sunscreens can also do quite a number on your skin? Ever notice that in the summer your skin just feels so dry, rough, and clogged? Even the driest of skin types can get clogged in the summer. Letting these issues build up will just set you up for the “lovely” dryness and irritation that comes along with the winter months. So how do you avoid this?

Well at Dream Spa Medical we believe we have the perfect answer for you. Hydrafacial! Hydrafacial is a quick and easy treatment that cleanses, exfoliates, and hydrates your skin with vitamins and powerful anti aging antioxidants. The best part is you can be in and out of the office in as little as 20 minutes if you need to be or get the full Dream Spa experience for an hour and get pampered.

So I say this summer commit to you. Commit to that beautiful effortless glow and most of all enjoy!
