"I just had my initial consultation with Dr DeRosa and was very satisfied, after having seen two or three other facial, plastic surgeons prior. I was highly impressed with her passion, obvious skill and competency. In today's high volume, fast paced, often automaton medical world, her reassuring and gentle manner, after my recent facial trauma, was certainly refreshing, as well as her thoroughness in explaining her proposed treatment plan and followup visits . I will definitely be returning for my continued recovery from my facial injury. I highly recommend her services to the Palm Beach community as I am sure her new office in Palm Beach will be booming and successful for years to come."- M.D. / Google / Mar 15, 2020
"I went today for a consultation with Doc Derosa and was pleasantly surprised. Doctor Derosa talked me through what I wanted and suggested that I go a less invasive route on account of my skin and how it would take the treatment I originally wanted. She could not have been any more honest or friendly!! I am going back in two weeks to see the esthetician :o) I didn't catch the lady at the front desk's name, but she was also super friendly and professional!!"- A.B. / Yelp / Mar 05, 2020
"The DeRosa clinic is one of my favorite spots in Boston. I schedule visits around Dr. DeRosa and lead aesthetician, Steven Giannetta’s availability. The practice is located centrally on Newbury Street in the heart of Back Bay. The experience is pleasant and effortless from ease of communication with appointment schedulers to greeting when you walk through the doors. The office is gorgeous with natural light shining through the lobby front windows and meticulously kept modern and spacious treatment rooms. Dr. Derosa’s hallmark is enhancement with emphasis on a natural aesthetic. I never feel rushed when speaking with her and that holds true with the rest of her team. Each member of the team shares an attitude of professionalism, excellence and compassion. Although there is not a treatment I have not liked, I am personally obsessed with dermaplanning and the Vi peel. My only complaint is not having a DeRosa clinic in New York...yet."- E.M. / Google / Feb 28, 2020
"Dr Derosa did an incredible job on my daughter... we specifically chose her because my daughter had breathing difficulties and we wanted someone double board certified. We met her after interviewing 3 other surgeons... and we adored her immediately. The night before surgery I saw the negative reviews she has gotten and it made me very nervous... but then I remembered that the percentage was tiny in comparison to all the surgeries she has performed. She knew exactly how to calm my daughter. We are now a week out of our surgery and all I can say is she was amazing. The nursing staff raved about her at Mass Eye and Ear...she listened to us and changed as little as possible. My daughter is thrilled and we are too...she is a true artist. We are thankful to all the lovely staff too."- A.H. / Yelp / Feb 18, 2020
Laser Hair Removal Ideal Candidates
Laser hair reduction with GentleMax Pro is a safe, noninvasive process for men and women of most skin types. Ideal candidates for laser hair removal treatments:
- Want to reduce hair on their face or body
- Frequently experience ingrown hairs
- Are in good overall physical health
- Do not have cuts, sores, or skin irritation in treatment areas
- Wish to stop using other hair removal methods (waxing, shaving, plucking, bleaching, depilatory creams)
Laser Hair Removal Procedure Technique
On the day of your laser hair removal procedure, we will have you relax in a private treatment room and clean the designated areas to remove dirt, oil, and lotion. One of our trained physician assistant will then slightly stretch the skin in the treatment area to provide a clear pathway between the GentleMax Pro laser handpiece and the hair follicle root. The laser energy will emit a gentle heat to target and destroy the hair follicle, preventing it from growing again. Many individuals require between 4 – 6 sessions to achieve ideal results. These visits are typically spaced out over the course of several weeks to give the treated areas time to recover. Performing laser hair removal at such intervals also allows time for the hair follicles in the dormant phase to progress to the active growth phase, which enhances the effectivity of laser treatment.
What to Expect with Laser Hair Removal
Although this hair removal procedure is gentle, the treated area of your skin may look as if it has a mild sunburn following the use of laser. Any redness or skin tenderness you experience should subside within a day. After your treatment, you will be free to go about your daily activities, but you should refrain from strenuous activity or sun exposure for 24 hours so the skin may heal. Anti-inflammatory creams or ice packs can be applied to the treatment areas to help manage any mild discomfort.
