If you are not aware of this, it is probably because you think Botox is a big deal. There is a negative stigma associated to Botox and it's a shame that it exists. Misinformation leads people to associate Botox with emotionless, waxy faces... this is very untrue. Your friends who get Botox look refreshed and rejuvenated every morning, without even trying.
An individual does not just get a one-size-fits-all dosage of Botox, they receive a customized amount of units based on their treatment needs. The amount of units that an individual receives depends on age and muscle movement. The older you are, the longer you wait, the deeper the wrinkle; thus, more Botox units. For example, a 25 year old may get 15 units of Botox. A 35 year old may get 30 units of Botox. At 45 years old, someone may get 40 units of Botox … or 20, depending on whether they have received it before or not. Botox is not about resisting the aging process, it is about aging gracefully. Every age in life should be cherished, and no one should feel insecure about themselves in the process. Look great for your age because you can, and because you should! You have one life to live- and you should feel beautiful everyday, no matter what age. If you are feeling insecure about your wrinkles, Botox is not a big deal. The longer you wait, the deeper the wrinkle.
Botox is not a taboo, your friends just aren't telling you ;)

Everyone’s favorite time of year is rolling back around. We all want to be in tip top shape to throw on our swimsuits and hit the beach or pool. But there is always the dreaded question…. Am I swimsuit ready? Does my stomach poke out over my two piece or what about this awful cellulite? Enter…. Velashape. Velashape sounds like a little miracle sent down from the beach body gods. What? Get rid of my cellulite by just laying down for an hour? How could this be true? Does it really work?
This is a question that as a practitioner I am asked regularly. What is my answer? YES! Velashape really does work. There are a few BUT’s though (no pun intended). We will get to that in a few. First let’s discuss what Velashape is and how it works. Velashape is an FDA approved device for the reduction of the appearance of cellulite. How the device works is it uses radiofrequency waves, infrared light, and lymphatic suction to smooth the appearance of cellulite, while also tightening the skin and shrinking fat cells. So what that basically means is that in the areas treated, most commonly thighs, buttocks and stomach, your skin will appear smoother and more toned.
Intrigued yet? I sure was. A little skeptical? Yup, same here. With all of the devices out there that claim to shrink, tighten and fix, how can you navigate which ones actually work and which just miss the mark? I can say this; the reason I know that Velashape works is because I do it myself. I used to be the person that could never wear shorts or white pants because my cellulite would show through. I was extremely self conscious. Well I started working out a little and using Velashape weekly last spring and by the beginning of the summer it was amazing. I wasn’t perfect, my legs did not look like Cindy Crawford’s but I felt pretty darn comfortable in a pair of shorts and that was enough to make me a believer.
Now for the real talk… Velashape is not a miracle. It will not take your size 10 legs and make them a 2. It will not make your legs runway ready if you stay home eating bon bon’s, never exercise and just spend one hour a week with Velashape. BUT if you live a relatively healthy lifestyle, spend a little time in the gym and a little time with the Velashape, I can almost guarantee you that you will feel like the money you spent was worth it. That you will feel more comfortable at the family BBQ in your shorts and to me, that is a great feeling.
Are you feeling ready? Is this summer going to be the summer that you’re ready to put those shorts back on? Come on in for a consult, we would be happy to give you our HONEST opinion.
Today we'd like to introduce you to Diana Brouillard.
So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don't you give us some details about you and your story.
We started our first location in Canton, MA in May of 2013 and then went on to open our second location in Brookline in August of 2014. Dr. Joseph Russo and I are partners in this business and we felt that the Canton and Brookline communities were underserved in regards to minimally invasive aesthetic treatment options. There are so many great treatments available today for skincare, anti-aging, acne, body shaping, medical weight loss, etc. And we at Dream Spa Medical believe that everyone should feel good about themselves and be confident in their appearance. That may mean different things to different people which is why we always spend a lot of time with our patients discussing their cosmetic goals, and customize a treatment plan that will fit their budget and lifestyle. We attribute our success thus far to being able to connect with our clients and provide them with cutting edge treatments in a comfortable environment and giving them great results with minimal downtime after the procedures.
Great, so let's dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you've had to overcome?
Nothing is a smooth road, but it has most certainly been a very exciting and rewarding road. I believe growing pains are normal in any business but being able to overcome challenges makes you better, stronger and more appreciative of what you have. Finding the right fit for the type of equipment we wanted to utilize at Dream Spa Medical was one of our bigger challenges. We had to trial several machines until we found exactly what we were looking for and that can be costly. Additionally, it takes time to build a strong clinical team and that is one thing we can really pride ourselves on today. The clinicians at Dream Spa Medical are skilled and passionate about their work. The administrative staff is very intuitive and caring. It took a little while to get there though.
Dream Spa Medical – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
We specialize in minimally invasive and non-invasive treatments that render real results with little to no downtime. We are known for our high quality care paired with great customer service. Our clients always tell us that they love coming to Dream Spa Medical. We like to make it comfortable and homey for them so they know and feel that they're in good hands when they come here. That's what we're most proud of…that we're able to make people feel better about themselves and restore their confidence. That people tell their friends about how great it is to come to Dream Spa Medical because of the full experience. I believe that's what sets us apart. Our skill level, personal touch, professionalism and bedside manner of both the clinical and administrative teams. We really have an amazing team!
What moment in your career do you look back most fondly on?
I love when our clients tell us that they have never felt and looked better. I'm proud to know that we can give people that feeling of confidence. Understanding and being recognized for being able to change people's lives is what I'm most proud of.
