I am one of those women of a certain age who was sure I would never get any kind of cosmetic procedure done. I was happy to age gracefully and took it as a point of pride. A number of life changes led me to reconsider so, on a whim, I booked a consultation with Lindsey at Dream Spa Medical. I just wanted information about fillers but wasn't planning to get anything done that day. As soon as I walked into the facility I felt at ease. It was calm, low-key and friendly. All of the women who worked there looked great. Very, very natural without a trace of that fake, overdone Hollywood style that turns me off. Lindsey was terrific. She answered all my questions with calm expertise and was absolutely not hard-sell. I felt like I could just say "thanks" and leave if I wanted to without any pressure. But I did the opposite. I went out of my comfort zone and decided to go for it. Lindsey gave me one vial of Juvederm XC in some problem areas. It was somewhat uncomfortable but not too bad. Certainly tolerable.
The results were miraculous. I can't emphasize enough how great I felt in the days after the treatment. There were a few very, very tiny bruises but they healed up quickly. My family and friends began to tell me how rested and glowing I looked. I hadn't told them about the treatment but their response said it all. More importantly, I felt great looking in the mirror. Yes, I still had appropriate aging areas- because I wanted to - but I looked at least 5 years younger. The creeping feeling of age vanished and I felt rejuvenated. This sounds like I'm going over the top - but for me, this was a life-changing experience. I recently went for a little touch up in some areas that I thought could be enhanced and the experience was even better. Lindsey had me put a numbing cream on my face first before the injections and the procedure was a breeze.
Minimal discomfort, no bruising and even more youthful appearance. All without looking fake in any way. So, Instead of being one of those people who "would never do that kind of thing to my face" I am now one of those people who will never NOT do this to my face." It's simple, effective, revivifying and I'm grateful that there is something that can help me keep my face looking "fit". I make sure to keep my body in shape so why not my face? Thank you, Lindsey and Dream Spa Medical. You are really performing a beautiful service. - Lily Z.
I went here to get my first Botox: I'm 36 years old. It's super scary getting Botox because of the fear you'll be in bad hands or that you'll end up with Spock eyebrows. But I'm thrilled with my results! And I'll definitely be going back.
Lindsay did an awesome job explaining my options to me for my major concerns on my face. I ultimately decided just to do my forehead as this was my first experience. But she wrote me a list of options for other areas I would want to troubleshoot in the future. The process was quick and painless and the whole staff was friendly and welcoming. I also like that they do a Botox bank deal. It's expensive, but it the long run it saves you a few hundred dollars, so it's worth it if you plan on continuing treatment.
After my Botox, my results had me a little worried. One big wrinkle still stuck out, and I had big indents above my eyebrows, and one eyebrow moved and the other didn't. Luckily, they schedule follow up visits. When Lindsay saw me, I didn't even need to say what was wrong: she immediately knew and then said I needed just a few more injections in a couple places to fix it and she did them right away.
A couple days after that, and it looks perfect! No lines, no indents above the brow and my brow is even. So they really do know what they are doing.
(I should say that the first result wasn't a matter of bad Botox injections, but that she purposely went higher with my injections to be sure that I didn't get DROOPY brows, and that my brows were uneven to begin with. So after I came back, she knew she could go a little lower. They also try to be conservative with their estimate of how much you need, because they can always do more if you need it, but they can't reverse if they've done too much--you'd just have to wait it out).
Looking at my before and after photos is pretty amazing. I feel like I look ten years younger but no one can tell I got Botox. I'm planning on going back very soon and trying a facial there!
I also was very pleased with the front desk staff. I had to delay my follow up appointment because my cat recently had major surgery and had to go to a cardiologist and the time conflicted. When I went in for my appointment, the woman at the front desk remembered me (I'd only been there once!) and said, "how's your cat doing?" I thought that her memory was impressive, but it was also very kind to ask that.
So overall, I'm loving this place and I can't wait to go back. - Anne C.
First impression is everything. My biggest take away from the consultation was the simple fact that Jamie was not afraid to dive in and trouble shoot the issue. She washed her hands and got up close and personal. That made all the difference for me. I went in unsure and half way into the session I decided that this was the place for me to start my clean and clear skin journey. Very informative and down to earth and not to mention I did not feel rushed at all. All questions were answer and clarification was provided where needed. 5 thumbs up on the consultation.
Fast forward a few month later. Had my first appointment and it was everything I expected. How do you know you had an amazing experience? When you go home and realize you didn't leave a big enough tip and feel a little bad!! Jamie is awesome, genuine, knowledgeable, and down right the best. No judgement ... I shared my insecurities and was not uncomfortable at all. 5 !! Highly recommended Jamie and Dream Spa Medical!! - Simone W.
Had laser facial for the first time. Even being in the plastic surgery industry, I have my full trust and confidence in Sloan's suggestions and techniques. If I weren't out of state- I'd go to her as regularly as possible. - Elizabeth H.
Dream Spa Medical have helped me to get my skin "wedding ready" for my upcoming wedding. The hydrafacial is so relaxing & leaves your skin clean, glowing & refreshed. I would highly recommend to all brides. - Aine H.
The team at DreamSpa Medical (Brookline and Canton) is a group of professionals who really care about your skin and it shows in their work ethic!

Dream Spa Medical Brookline is the third tattoo removal I have visited, and the best by far! Their staff is highly trained, welcoming and knowledgeable in everything they do, and they also use the most modern and efficient equipment on their patients. I highly suggest them to anyone who reads this review! -Matthew V.
It was such a pleasure meeting Slone. Super impressed about her knowledge & insight about melasma that has been plaguing me for years. Professional, smart and a wonderful caring person that is passionate about what she does, and is sincere about helping clients feel & look their best! Did the VI peel today so I will have to wait & see results., but feel like Slone put me on a path to tackling this skin obstacle. It's taken me two years of researching to finally find a place and a person that made me feel hope that I could fix something that making me insecure & sad. Will definantly being going back!!!! - Joanna K.

Purchased a groupon and was pleasantly surprised this gem is nestled in Brookline. I was wondering why there were no reviews, but then come to find out they just recently opened at the end of July. My experience prompted me to write their first! The ambiance was instantly relaxing. The staff were friendly and were informative about all things considering my skin care- even how I can tweak my current at home regimen. Very client centered. I purchased the 4-layer facial which features a gentle enzymatic exfoliant that had my skin glowing. I'll definitely be booking another appointment very soon. They also offer Botox, fillers, waxing, slimming body wraps, and laser all competitively priced. Check out their pampering menu of goodies! I can't wait to go back!! - Zosha G.
If you are in need of post Lipo massages, you have found the best place to go to! I had surgery done 2 weeks ago out of town and I was very anxious to find the perfect place and person to take care of my post Lipo massages. I researched online and decided to give dream med spa a try since they have such awesome reviews and I was very impress since the moment I arrived there. Leah is the best of the best. She is super professional, thoughtful, caring and relatable. Off the bat, you can tell that she loves what she does and she puts so much effort and care into each massage. The post Lipo massages can be a bit uncomfortable due to your body being so sore from the Lipo itself but Leah makes you feel so comfortable and she makes sure to ask if you are ok while you get your massage, which I appreciated it so much. Leah works at the canton and Boston site And she is very flexible with her hours. she even saw me on a day that she was scheduled to be off from work so that I wouldn't go to long without a massage! Thank you so much Leah, you've made my post surgery care easier than I expected! :-) - Sarai B.
I had always been nervous about getting botox but went to see Kristin two weeks ago. My colleague had raved about her so I booked an appointment and am so happy that I did! Kristin was extremely professional and listened to all of my concerns before sharing her recommended treatment plan. She perfectly delivered the natural, refreshed look I wanted and I definitely will be back. Thank you Kristin! - Ruta K.
Went to see Julia for a facial on a friend's recommendation. Amazing from start to finish. The front desk is very polite, professional and friendly. My facial experience was truly exceptional. First of all, Julia took a long time talking to me about my skin, needs, things to avoid, types of care. Not a single time during this consultation did she push any product on me. She then suggested a type of facial and asked me my time availability. She really took the time, my fadial lasted 1,5 hrs not including the 30 min consultation. My face felt hugely rejuvenated, not overly 'worked on' and was glowing. Julia then discounted my treatment because they were running a Groupon deal, even though I didn't know about it. Overall, professional, affordable, pleasant and in a great location. Highly recommend! - Maria L.
This is a very friendly place where the customer's concerns are at the forefront. It goes beyond just the treatments, as they work with you to find the root of your skin issues such as acne. I have battled with mild acne for most of my life, but recently it had gotten worse so I turned to Dream Spa. Slone was the one that took care of me. After a couple of treatments, she noticed something about my skin and surrounding areas that no doctor had. She suggested I speak to my physician about the possibility of having Candida (yeast infection) and it turned out that I did. I am sooo very thankful to her, as this issue could have gotten much worse. So thank you Slone for helping with your diligence, passion and determination! I am sure we are on route to clearing up my skin. Turn to Dream Spa for great personal service, products and treatments. - S. G.
My skin is glowing! I have been seeing Sloan for facials for the past 6 months and people are complimenting me often on how refreshed I look. These are real pros when it comes to skin care. Sloan and the rest of the staff is knowledgeable, professional and very friendly. Sloan listened to my concerns then explained the appropriate treatment options for me and she answered all 100 of my questions. I am a big fan of their Oxygen Facial, which leaves my skin instantly healthier and radiant following the treatment. The spa is clean, relaxing and very welcoming. I have referred a few friends to the spa and they are all very happy I did. I would recommend you make an appointment as soon as possible before the secret is out! - BSkye A.
Slone Mathieu from Dream Spa Medical was amazing. Skincare products and makeup terrify me, but at 41 my drugstore products weren't working anymore, and as I started a new career, I wanted a makeup routine that made me look more polished. Enter Slone. She was incredibly knowledgeable about skin types, skin coloring, and aging, and she was able to give me baby steps into makeup and skincare so I never felt intimidated. She knew about all the products, told me what to spend my money on and what not to, and came up with a makeup routine that I could do in under five minutes. I'm THRILLED. Slone is truly about what's best for her clients. - Shelley B.
