Why Choose Face Forward Medical Aesthetics?

What’s Your Actual Skin Age?

In minutes, you’ll find out! Did you know that fewer than 5% of medical spas around the country offer a thorough computerized facial skin analysis? How can you be confident in a corrective treatment plan and then a maintenance treatment plan without objective evaluation? How will you determine success? We are the first medical spa in Lexington, MA, to offer state-of-the-art skin imaging and analysis.

Your skin will be compared to a database of 250,000 people and then specifically compared to others with a birthday within one year of yours.

You’ll find out how your true “skin age” compares to your chronologic “calendar age.” Is your skin younger or older than it should be?

Not Just a Photograph See Through Your Skin to the Deep Layers

Were you a sun worshiper? The answer lies beneath. Using multi-spectral imaging, in minutes, you’ll have an analysis of UV spots, wrinkles, texture, pore size, red/brown spots, and porphyrins. Then you will find out how each category compares to people your age.

We Don’t Just Tell You; We Show You

When we prepare a personalized skincare regimen, we don’t just tell you it will work; we will show you over time. We will track changes in the VISIA Complexion Analysis System. If you’re a candidate for any of our treatments, you’ll know that it works because you’ll see the results firsthand, in an objective fashion. How refreshing!

We don’t just say we’ll provide individualized service, but we actually have the tools to give you the recommendations that fit your specific skin conditions after a comprehensive and detailed computerized analysis (and we have fun doing it!) We can’t wait to meet you!

Popular Med Spa Services

BOTOX

We offer BOTOX injections to improve the appearance of forehead wrinkles and crow’s feet. BOTOX is injected into specific facial muscles, preventing contraction. This relaxes and softens the appearance of wrinkles and prevents new ones from forming. Achieve a natural look lasting 3-4 months.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers or face fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane, Sculptra, and Radiesse address age-related volume loss and make wrinkles less apparent by filling them in. Common target areas include nasolabial folds (laugh lines), cheeks, tear troughs, jawline, and temple hollows. Lip fillers are one of our most popular services.

Chemical Peels

Chemical face peels improve the appearance of your skin by exfoliation. A chemical solution causes the outer skin layer to exfoliate, or peel off, revealing new skin which is typically smoother, less wrinkled, and less blemished. We offer some of the best chemical peels, including the medical-grade Vi Peel.

Laser Skin Resurfacing

Advanced skin resurfacing and rejuvenation addresses fine lines and wrinkles, age spots, sun spots, and dull skin. IPL Photofacial (Intense Pulsed Light) is a cornerstone solution. We offer BroadBand Light BBL photofacial from Sciton, and Forever Young BBL, considered to be the best-in-class, most effective IPL treatments available in the industry. The Halo hybrid fractional laser gives you exceptional ablative results with short, non-ablative downtime.

Microneedling

Special devices such as the Dermapen or Skinpen (far superior to microneedling at home) create tiny punctures in the top layer of skin, harnessing the skin’s natural repair capability to form new collagen. Your own platelet-rich plasma (PRP), naturally full of antioxidants and growth factors, can be added topically to enhance the results. Decrease the appearance of wrinkles, improve texture, decrease pore size, and more.

HydraFacial MD

3 steps. 30 minutes. The best skin of your life. HydraFacial MD is a facial that combines deep extraction with exfoliation. Each of its multiple steps achieves both chemical and mechanical exfoliation. A vortex fusion suction handpiece infuses serums into the skin, removes and extracts dead skin, debris, oil, and dirt.  Absolutely no downtime. Look glowing and radiant the next day!

Subnovii Plasma Pen

This pen erases sagging wrinkled skin. Popular for hooded or droopy eyes, mouth and lip wrinkles, and many other trouble areas where lasers can be hard to reach. Delivers plasma energy (in the form of a micropulse of ionized gas) to the epidermis and dermis. Your fibroblasts are jolted into increasing collagen formation.

Jill Canes

Nurse Practitioner

I received my Bachelor's degree in Nursing from the University of Massachusetts Lowell campus in 2003 and my advanced degree as a Family Nurse Practitioner from Regis College in 2006. Early in my career, I worked for several years at a prominent Medical Spa on Newbury Street, focusing on facial aesthetics.

Since then, my practice settings have brought me to some of the top hospitals and communities in New England: family practice, specialty care, surgical subspecialties, and intensive care. This diverse exposure gave me a deep understanding of how to deliver high-quality, compassionate care at all levels.

Life always comes full circle, though, and founding Face Forward reflects a return to my true passion. I love helping you look and feel your best and watching the confidence boost! I have strict attention to detail and a strong design aesthetic, and my goal is to make sure you are treated like family.
