As we age, our skin ages with us. Our bodies begin to produce less of the things that keep our skin looking plump, smooth, and youthful. With the decreased production of natural anti-aging elements like collagen and elastin comes impairments to our skin tone, texture, and color. But we don’t have to let our age dictate the way we look or feel. At Vitalize MD, we offer a wide variety of effective and non-invasive facial treatments that can help you restore your skin’s color, texture, and tone – restoring your youthful glow and confidence along with them.

One of the most common complaints related to aging is the loss of youthful volume and contours. Over time, these facial features are replaced with shadows, hollows, and an overall appearance of tiredness or weariness. As our collagen levels fade and facial fat depletes itself, the volume in our faces diminishes. The dreaded “smile lines,” or “laugh lines,” begin to appear around the lips, nose, and corners of the mouth. Thankfully, our incredible Dr. Nawab is here to recommend the best option for volume loss and facial contour improvements. We will help soften problem areas and smooth your skin, creating a confidence-boosting look that is uniquely you. Call our office to learn more about our volume loss and facial contours treatment options, or to book your first life-changing appointment.
There are a lot of reasons that we may feel out of shape: genetics, an unhealthy diet, hormones… The list goes on.

This unique treatment method has been a game-changer for many people with stubborn fat deposits. Come see the difference SculpSure can make. Call our office to book an appointment today.
Through the aging process, our skin decreases collagen production and elastin, which keeps the skin looking plump and naturally smooth to the touch. With the loss of these aspects we start to see diminished skin tone, texture, and color. Prolonged exposure to UV in sunlight, cigarette smoke, pollution, climate, and chemicals all can have a harmful effect on the skin and its appearance. Pre-existing skin conditions such as acne, melasma, and rosacea all can affect the skin’s overall evenness and color. At Vitalize MD we have a variety of options to treat these problematic areas.
All facial treatments are customized to your unique challenge and include treatment options listed below:
and the list continues to grow!!

We also perform advanced injection techniques that lift and raise the brows, widen the eyes, soften lip lines, turn up the corners of the mouth and treat neck wrinkles. By starting the injections early, you can prevent lines from becoming permanently ironed into your skin.
Feel free to call our practice for more information or to request an appointment today!
As we age, the face loses youthful volume and develops shadows and hollowing leading to a tired and weary appearance. As facial volume diminishes, the skin will have acquired lines or wrinkles due to collagen and facial fat depletion. The most common areas that experience this change are fine lines around on the lips, nasolabial folds commonly known as "smile lines" or "laugh lines", are skin folds that run from each side of the nose to the corners of the mouth and oral commissures develop just beneath the corner of the mouth. Dr. Nawab will recommend the best option to soften those areas and smooth the skin to give you the look that is right for you.

Skin can be damaged over time, and sometimes requires treatment to restore a fresh, younger look. Your dermal specialists at VitalizeMD have a number of treatments that will remove skin damage and rejuvenate your look. Topical treatments like oils and creams may only grant temporary and surface-level relief, but laser skin resurfacing will reduce or eliminate pigmentation discoloration, larger pores, wrinkles, and acne scars. Dr. Zainab Nawab is your dedicated cosmetic laser specialist in Westborough, serving anyone who wants to improve the look of their skin.
We offer laser resurfacing and Fraxel laser treatments with no less than the best technology available. We use FDA-approved lasers and methods that are proven to help individuals with their skin. Each patient receives custom care that seeks to combine the best treatment with what a patient wants. Our skilled personnel is certified to give each patient the best care possible and restore confidence in our patients’ skin.
Laser resurfacing will safely and gently remove damaged layers of your skin. Using the FDA approved Fraxel® laser, which has lasers that pinpoint individual spots on your skin, Dr. Nawab can precisely remove tissue without causing damage to other parts of your skin or body. The Fraxel® laser is so effective it actually encourages your skin to grow new tissue.
This reduces your recovery time immensely. As a fractional laser, it works on both surface skin and the mid-level layer of skin, epidermis and dermal collagen, respectively. Side effects include: redness in the face, swollen or bruised skin, minor acne, and other skin reactions. Most patients do not experience severe reactions, but if you do our specialists at Vitalize are prepared to give you aid.
Skin Tightening works on the dermal collagen level. Using the Fraxel® laser, Dr. Nawab heats the collagen in your skin, helping it to contract and begin the skin tightening process. As a result, new collagen is produced in your skin and this reaction spreads to your skin around the treatment area. If your face or neck receives the treatment, then you will see wrinkles and saggy skin disappear over time.
This treatment can be applied to many parts of your body, areas that are prone to wrinkles may need repeat treatments, and after the initial process individuals may want to receive treatments annually to keep their skin looking youthful. Side effects are minimal, thanks to the gentleness of the procedure. You may experience feelings of warmth in treatment areas, and if more serious side-effects occur, please see your doctor. For more information on how we can improve your skin, click the links below.
People of all ages can have acne and our protocols use a combination of home-based treatments, Acne facials, DermaPeels, light-based treatments, and laser treatments.
Dr. Nawab and his team are passionate about giving individuals the youthful look they deserve. To schedule a consultation please call or you can visit our Westborough office. We look forward to hearing from you!
We are very excited to introduce the next-generation Collagen Induction cosmetic procedure. Innovative and effective, Collagen PIN activates cellular regeneration to help tighten and lift skin, while minimizing common skin problems such as acne scars, fine lines, photo-aging, dull skin, poor texture, stretch marks and body scars.
The Collagen PIN is the most advanced medical-grade automated micro-needling device on the market and we are the ONLY practice in the Metro west area to offer this exciting treatment.
Microneedling is a form of collagen induction therapy. The tip of the Collagen PIN contains sterile micro-pins that are used to create micro-injury sites at precise depths in the skin. This treatment makes use of the skin’s natural healing process to stimulate collagen, growth factors and elastin production. The result is a reduction in the appearance of textural issues and skin rejuvenation.
One of the awesome things about the P.I.N is that it can be used on all skin types, skin colors and on any part of the body. That’s right….NO restrictions!
Typically a series of 3-6 Collagen P.I.N. treatments is recommended, depending upon your area of correction or concern. Your skincare professional will ultimately determine a treatment schedule based on your individual skin conditions, skin issues, goals and desires. Treatments are usually spaced in 4-week intervals. Patients with deep wrinkles, advanced sun damage, stretch marks, or any type of scars, usually require 6 or more treatments to achieve the desired results.
Prior to your treatment with collagen, the treatment area will be numbed with a topical numbing agent. Most people feel almost nothing after having been pretreated with a topical numbing agent.
Immediately after your treatment, your skin will look slightly pink to moderately red. We have you go home with a post-care kit containing skincare products that are 100% paraben free, gluten free and vegan, which will greatly minimize these symptoms and enhance your overall results.
Directly after your treatment, we recommend using only mineral-based foundation, as it cannot build bacteria. You may go back to your regular foundation 4 days post-treatment.
Most patients see results after the first treatment. Individual results vary depending on individual skin conditions. It is common to see positive results as soon as 1-2 weeks after the first treatment. Often, change is noted within just a few days!!!
This produces results through the stimulation of growth factors and collagen, thereby promoting new skin cells to surface. As our skin ages, our collagen production naturally slows down. Your overall result will last longer when using an at-home regimen that includes a daily Retinoid product. We can help you determine the best-suited home care regimen for your skin type. New collagen & elastin formation in the skin are documented as visually and measurably improved as much as one year after just one treatment. However, a series of treatments is typically recommended for best results.
At VitalizeMD in Westborough, the treatment can be purchased as a single treatment or as a series of 3 treatments.
*Single Treatment (Face Only)
Includes full size medical-grade products to enhance your results.
Prices start at $525.00
*Series of 3 (Face Only)
Includes full size medical-grade products to enhance your results.
Prices start at $1395.00
*Prices can change at any time and the website might not reflect the current price.
True or False?
Acne is cause by dirt? FALSE
Acne is NOT caused by dirt so over scrubbing acne not only does not help but it can make it worse by over drying the skin and triggering a “supply and demand” response to “send more oil”. Acne is typically seen in Adolescent Teen -Boys and Girls alike but can also be present in Adults, considered Adult Acne.
Causes range mostly from a rise of male hormone androgen (present in males and females) stimulated in sebaceous glands, to stress, medications, diet (sugar), and using the wrong products. Acne can be debilitating to some and we are here to help you and guide you to clearer more beautiful skin.
Our Acne Facial requires a consultation with Master Aesthetician Kathleen to best determine the specific cause of acne and how best to treat it. Each Acne Facial will be customized to clients specific challenges ranging from cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, mask to professional peels, microdermabrasion, IPL, and Laser.
Our Acne Facial requires home compliance and follow up appts.
Rejuvenate your face and chest by improving the appearance of fine lines, blemishes, uneven skin pigmentation and acne. Chemical peels exfoliate superficial, dead skin layers and allow new healthy cells to surface, permitting light to reflect off smooth, healthy-appearing skin for a beautiful, youthful effect.
For best results, we recommend a series of 3-6 peels at a monthly interval and then one every 2-3 months to maintain these glowing results.
Radiant Derma acial
Our VITALIZE MD SIGNATURE FACIAL:
Our signature facial is the ultimate defense to oxidative damage due to Free Radical Damage. This signature treatment combines the revolutionary DermaSweep, particle free, microdermabrasion system. This system takes microdermabrasion to the next level. Only available to licensed medical practitioners, we are the ONLY practice in central MA to offer this treatment.
The DermaSweep microdermabrasion combines precision brush tip exfoliation and topically infused solutions specific to skins needs for the deepest, efficacious and most comfortable microdermabrasion treatment. No downtime. Every facial includes hand, shoulder, and head massage.

Fire and Ice
The Fire and Ice Facial by IS CLINICAL featured on the TV show The Doctors is widely viewed as the Hollywood Facial. It works like a clinical peel without the peeling. The “Fire” portion is a resurfacing masque formulated with 18% unbuffered glycolic acid, citric acid, malic acid, Vitamin B3, retinol and potent antioxidants, including green tea. Although some find this masque to be a little uncomfortable, most tolerate it extremely well. It only stays on for 2-3 mins. The Ice portion is a rejuvenating cool, soothing and intensively hydrating masque with Hylauronic Acid, Aloe Vera, Japanese green tea extract, grape seed, licorice and rosemary extracts. The Ice portion stays on for approximately 5 mins while cool globes are massaged on your face.
“This is a favorite of mine” ~ Kathleen
Benefits of Fire and Ice:
Derma Peels are a combination of microdermabrasion and a chemical peel. By first exfoliating the upper skin layer, the peel can reach deeper and more uniformly for a better overall result.
For best results, we recommend a series of 3-6 Derma peels at a monthly interval and then one every 2-3 months to maintain the glowing results.
Deep Pore Cleansing Facial
A deep pore cleansing facial is typically considered a “traditional facial” which consists of pre-cleansing oil to soften skin and dissolve impurities followed by a mild exfoliate under steam and gentle cleansing with the Clarasonic Pro cleansing brush. Extraction (if necessary), toning, shoulder massage, mask, moisturize, SPF. Includes hand massage. Your skin will feel clean, refreshed and glowing. Recommended every 8 weeks
DermaSweep uses a vacuum to gently lift the skin surface as the device "sweeps away" the dead layer of skin in a precise and controlled manner. The skin is left smoother as the vacuum action of the wand stimulates blood flow and cleans the pores. The increased blood flow encourages collagen formation thus firming and toning the epidermis.
By selecting the right treatment tip, infusion solution and adjustable vacuum pressure, we can deliver a safe and effective exfoliation.
Our aestheticians carefully follow the DermaSweep treatment protocol, which means your treatment will be one of the safest, lowest-risk, age-defying procedures available.
Your skin will be instantly smoother and you will notice a vibrant glow after the first treatment. Hyper-pigmentation, acne scars and fine lines will lessen gradually over a series of microdermabrasion treatments.
Long lasting and more satisfying results will be seen after 4 to 6 treatments spaced over 10 days to two weeks apart, supported by a daily post-treatment routine.

The Geneo Oxypod system is the ultimate 3-in-1 facial for achieving a younger, fresher, and naturally better-looking skin. It offers a unique 3-in-1 treatment that works both on the outside and the inside of the skin, combining clinically proven treatment protocols that encourage the natural processes of the body to renew and replenish the skin.
OxyGeneo is an innovative technology for skin exfoliation (removal of dead skin cells from the skin surface), improving skin oxygen levels and infusion of valuable products to enrich the skin. The simultaneous skin exfoliation along with skin oxygenation optimizes the absorption of the valuable components in the nutrient-rich gels into the skin.
OxyGeneo capitalizes on the Bohr Effect that was discovered by Christian Bohr in 1904. The effect indicates that when the CO2 (Carbon dioxide) concentration increases, the hemoglobin releases oxygen from within. The OxyGeneo interaction between the capsule and the treatment gel creates abundance of CO2 on the skin that triggers the Bohr Effect that oxygenate the skin naturally. Oxygenating the skin is beneficial in all anti-aging and corrective skin procedures. Take a look at the video for even more information!
Each treatment feels just like a warm massage for the face. The exfoliation is described as very refreshing and comfortable and, because there is no vacuum procedure (like with other facial devices) the overall treatment is more soothing and relaxing. Many clients fall asleep and wake feeling rested and rejuvenated. More sensitive skin type clients may have a warm sensation on the skin during the first part of the treatment.
OxyGeneo works with the natural repairing processes of your skin; therefore results are individual and may vary between people. Your lifestyle also affects the ability of your skin to improve itself, so keeping a healthy lifestyle helps to linger the OxyGeneo effect. In any case, the OxyGeneo effect is cumulative, so more treatments will bring longer-lasting results.
You can expect to see visible texture improvement immediately after the 1st treatment. The OxyGeneo effect is cumulative, so more treatments will bring better results.
No, there is zero downtime.
During your first visit, our skin expert will examine your skin and match it with the right OxyGeneo treatment that suits your skin’s needs.
Yes! The OxyGeneo treatment has no downtime and the skin looks and feels great right after the treatment. If you have an upcoming event, schedule your OxyGeneo treatment on the same day or a day before and the effect will be well visible during the event.
Say goodbye to acne and other impurities on your body. Harnessing the power of oxygen on problem skin areas of your body can leave your skin detoxified, refreshed and hydrated from head to toe.

Let’s C! Have you heard how beneficial Vitamin C is for your skin? Unless you’ve been “out of touch” for the past 20 years you probably have seen Vitamin C products everywhere.
Allow me to break it down for you. Vitamin C is water soluable. Our skin is made of lipids so in order for Vitamin C to be absorbed it needs to be a stable form of Vitamin C. Stable and effective forms of Vitamin C are: ascorbic acid, L-ascorbic acid, ascorbyl palmitate, sodium ascorbyl phosphate, retinyl ascorbate, tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate, and magnesium ascorbyl phosphate.
The many benefits of Vitamin C include:
Our Vitamin C Facial is the perfect “GO TO” year round but especially beneficial during summer months when we are exposed to those powerful UVA Rays. We take the good with the bad, right? Pre-cleanse, exfoliate, steam, deep cleanse, extract (if necessary), tone, Vitamin C, Calming cool Alginate mask, moisturize, protect. Shoulder, hand, head massage included.
So, if you “Wanna Drop a Decade” ~ make Vitamin C one of your staples inside, with fruits and vegetables and out with topical Vitamin C.
Have you been considering BOTOX® or Dysport but just aren’t sure if this procedure is for you? Maybe you’re completely unfamiliar with facial fillers, or don’t see how they can benefit you. Perhaps you’ve heard they’re painful and scary, or that you’ll never be able to stop receiving treatment once you start! We’re here to tell you that neither of those things is true. Read on to find out more about what these injections are, what they can do for you, and what you can expect before, during and after the procedure!
We’re so glad you asked! BOTOX® and Dysport are FDA approved injectable muscle relaxants that smooth facial wrinkles and lines. Pesky wrinkles around the corner of the eye, smile lines, frown lines and brow furrows tend to appear as we age. This is because our skin loses elasticity and the repeated expression movements start to leave their mark!
That’s where botox comes in. This purified (and totally safe) protein is actually distilled from a toxin called Botulinum Type A and works by blocking nerve impulses in your muscles that trigger contractions. Basically, that’s a fancy way to say that it temporarily restricts the certain muscle movement in your face that causes deep expressions and their wrinkles. The targeted muscle paralysis only lasts about 3 to 6 months, which is why many patients tend to go in for follow-up treatments.
You may also see the offering of Dysport injection at our medical aesthetic practice in Westborough. This is nearly identical to BOTOX® in that it is derived from the same Botulinum Type A. The only difference is that the Dysport protein is smaller, so it tends to work much quicker. The end results are similar from our patients’ standpoint!
Because it’s primarily used to soften the appearance of wrinkles and lines, some assume that facial injectables are only for older patients. Surprisingly, the best uses are in a younger crowd, ideally from 28-36. This is when wrinkles begin to appear but have not had a chance to deepen. In this case, Botox is highly effective for prevention. Why? There are studies that show that when it is used at the first sign of a deep line, they can train muscles to relax so the repeated expression or movement that created the line ceases to happen. That’s right; this can prevent lines from forming in the first place!
However, older patients shouldn’t worry. If you’ve already got those wrinkles, never fear. Injectables can help soften those lines to give you your youthful skin back!
With some conditions, you probably shouldn’t get this treatment. The following conditions are reasons we recommend you do not have a treatment:
• You’re allergic to any part of its preparation
• You’re allergic to cow’s milk protein
• You suffer from a neuromuscular disease
• You have previously had an allergic reaction to any other botulinum toxin product, such as Myobloc or other varieties of BOTOX.
• You have a skin infection at the intended injection site
• You are pregnant, planning to be pregnant soon or are currently nursing.
It seems like patients’ biggest concern is that this facial treatment will hurt! We’re here to tell you, they really don’t. Many describe injection from the tiny needle as a little pinch, like you’d get from two fingers! Most often there will be 5-7 super-quick injections which will leave little red dots that look like mosquito bites! These fade within minutes. The whole procedure is often done within 15 minutes, so if you snuck off on your lunch break no one will be the wiser. You may have to pull a few funny faces in order to “set” or “fix” the product, and the worst side effect most people have is a bit of a headache for most of the day. Side effects do come on an individual basis though, and besides a headache, some may experience nausea, flu-like symptoms and/or pain and redness at injection sites.
You can expect to see results in about a week, or sometimes a little longer. Most often, you’ll be able to make those wrinkles or lines that you had treated for a couple of days, say if you furrow your eyebrows. Then all of a sudden, you just won’t be able to anymore! You’ll have smooth, serene skin for the next few months before the treatment wears off. For most people, effects last 3 months and wrinkle reduction can be seen as long as 4 months although of course, individual results may vary! One cool thing about repeated use is the effect will begin to last longer!
We hope this eased some fears and questions about BOTOX®/ Dysport.

As we age, the face loses youthful volume and develops shadows and hollowing leading to a tired and weary appearance. Dermal fillers can help to reduce or eliminate wrinkles, raise scar depressions, enhance thinning of the lips, treat lip wrinkles, raise brows, erase the hollowness beneath the eyes and add volume to cheekbones or chin for a more youthful appearance.
Dr. Nawab uses a full complement of fillers to give you the look that is right for you. Each filler has similar applications but are made up of different substances, applied to different areas and last for different lengths of time. Dr. Nawab will work with you to see which treatment will give you the best results.
All fillers can cause bruising, redness and swelling that can last for several days.
Individual fillers have different time spans in our skin. The more active an area you are injecting fillers into is, the lower the life-span of the product.
Injections can be uncomfortable; however the discomfort is very short term. A local anesthetic is either premixed into the filler or it is mixed at the time of injection to minimize the discomfort. A topical anesthetic cream can be applied 1 hour before the procedure if desired.
Medications that can increase bruising and bleeding at the injection site should be avoided for at least 1 week prior to the injections. These include Aspirin, NSAID family (Advil, Motrin, Aleve etc.), St John Wort, high doses of vitamin E, Ginko Biloba, ginseng.
Laser Hair Removal
One of our most popular series of treatments typically results in significant permanent hair reduction. Using the fastest and safest system available today our laser hair removal treatments are safe on all skin types and effective for most hair colors. No system is effective on white or gray hair so get your treatments before it’s too late!
Every laser is different, our laser works by destroying the blood supply to your hair follicles and/or the melanin in the hair follicle. When this blood flow is gone, the hair follicle and its active parts will shrivel and die. Our laser technology has many safety features. Its depth of penetration goes to the very deepest follicle and people of all skin colors can be safely treated. Men and women can now enjoy freedom from hair is areas such as bikini, underarms, back, chest, and face.
How many treatments you need will depend on your number of growth cycles and how hair-free you wish to be. Expect 6-8 removal treatments, spaced 5 to 6 weeks apart. Shaving or clipping hair in between treatments is allowed but no waxing or plucking.
Approximately 10 to 14 days after your first treatment, you will see the initial results. It is very pleasing. However, you need to remember that we recommend a series of six or more treatment, approximately 5-6 weeks apart, for the best results. Remember, your body tends to make hair again.
While side-effects are rare, some patients may have a swollen appearance to the follicles for a few minutes after treatment. This usually resolves before the patient leaves the treatment room, but sometimes can last for 24 hours. Because the Laser generates heat within the follicle, there is a risk of a small water blister. Local pigmentation may develop, which is usually responsive to topical creams, and it resolves without any problems. Please inform us, as soon as possible, of any problems.
Our goal is to make you comfortable. Our technology can deliver adequate power with minimal tissue heating and therefore you may feel minimal or no discomfort. With our Laser Hair Removal technology and with the use of our computerized scanner, treatment areas are scanned in a sequential fashion and not treated twice or more times, which minimizes the likelihood of side-effects.
The cost varies widely, depending on factors that include:
Underarms: $160/treatment (Packages available for savings)
Upper lip: $110/treatment
Standard Bikini: $235

Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive procedure used to renew overall skin tone and texture. It can improve the appearance of sun damage, wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, acne scarring, melasma, and other skin-related concerns and conditions.
The procedure uses a special applicator with an abrasive surface to gently sand away the thick outer layer of the skin to rejuvenate it.
A different microdermabrasion technique sprays fine particles of aluminum oxide or sodium bicarbonate with a vacuum/suction to accomplish the same outcome as the abrasive surface.
While most everyone can benefit from the microdermabrasion rejuvenation, typical conditions that are targeted include:
Our Micro Resurfacing System is a state-of-the art precision non-invasive exfoliation and skin revitalizing system. This powerful exfoliation encourages collagen formation, stimulates circulation, and cleanses the pores. Ideal for treating acne, early age lines, uneven skin texture, hyper-pigmentation, photo-damage, surgical scars, and improving overall skin health.
While microdermabrasion uses tiny bits of crystals or diamonds to scrub away the skin's dead cells, but DermaSweep uses bristles instead. ... These gentle bristles also work great on the thin skin around the eyes.
DermaPeels are a combination of microdermabrasion and a chemical peel. By first exfoliating the upper skin layer, the peel can reach deeper and more uniformly for a better overall result.
For best results, we recommend a series of 3-6 Dermapeels at a monthly interval and then one every 2-3 months to maintain the glowing results.
Our prices for Microdermabrasion are between $199-$225.
The price range can change at any time and the website might not reflect the current price.

Fraxel Laser Treatment is a safe, non-invasive procedure that allows you to rediscover the fresh, healthy skin of your youth.
Benefits of Fraxel Laser Treatment:
"Went in for a series of three Fraxel laser treatments. I was happy to find a super helpful and informative staff that guided me through the process, and three months after the final treatment I’m delighted with the results, and absolutely recommend Vitalize MD."
It is a safe and FDA approved treatment for many skin conditions such as:
Fraxel can be used for face, chest, eyes, neck, hands, stretch marks and acne scarring. This laser treatment can be used for mild, moderate, and severe skin damage, or even for simple prevention and maintenance of your skin. With the Fraxel Laser technique, your skin will become smoother, fresher, and healthier. Your skin texture and pores will size with the softening of wrinkle lines, and you will get the results you ever wanted.
Think of your skin as a digital photo in need of high-quality restoration or touch up. Just as a damaged painting is delicately restored one small area at a time, the laser treatment improves your appearance by affecting only a fraction of your skin at a time with thousands of tiny microscopic laser beams.
At your initial consultation, Dr Nawab will determine the best treatment plan for your desired results. Each Fraxel Treatment targets between 20 and 25 percent of the skin’s surface. On average, an effective treatment regimen is 3 to 5 sessions, spaced about 2 to 4 weeks apart. Results are immediate and progressive. Optimal improvement is usually visible in about 2 to 3 months. Because Fraxel Treatment spares healthy tissue; it is effective even on delicate skin areas, such as the neck, chest and hands.
Fraxel Laser Treatment can be performed right in your doctor’s office using only topical anesthesia.
Most of the people can be treated with Fraxel Laser therapy because it’s a safe treatment on almost any skin type and color. Every person’s skin condition is unique, and everyone has a different genetic make-up, lifestyle, and personal history. This laser therapy targets your skin’s specific needs.
However, some people can’t get Fraxel Laser Treatment. Your professional skin therapist may warn you against the laser therapy if you have:
Before you get the therapy, your professional skin therapist will likely
You will experience a mild sunburn sensation for about an hour and then minimal discomfort. The skin will have a pinkish tone for 5 to 7 days. Swelling is minimal and generally resolves in 2 to 3 days.
Some patients are able to return to routine activities, including work and social obligations, the same day of treatment. Others require a little more time, depending upon their skin condition and treatment. Please consult your physician to understand how Fraxel Laser Treatment will fit into your schedule.
New epidermal skin develops within 24 hours. This process of skin repair involves:
Over the following weeks and months, the body repairs the deeper dermal tissues that have been affected by the Fraxel treatment, producing longer beneficial changes associated with a healthy, youthful appearance.
After the laser treatment, you may experience swelling and redness on the area that had been treated. The intensity of the side effects may depend on how aggressive your laser therapy was and what healing characteristics your skin has. Every skin is different. Some people who had more aggressive treatment may experience greater side effects than expected, while others who had less aggressive therapy may experience fewer side effects.
The number of necessary laser therapies depends on the results on your skin. For example, the condition had been treated or how your skin responds to the therapy are common factors when the number of treatments is decided. Most of the people start to see the changes on their skins after 3 to 5 sessions that are usually spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart.
Every skin therapist tries to make the session as comfortable as possible. Your professional therapist will apply a topical numbing cream on the area that will be treated before the procedure. Usually, cold air is also used in the treated area during the session to minimize the discomfort. Most people may feel a sunburn-sensation after the therapy, which usually disappears in a few hours.
Single Treatment $1095- includes full-size medical-grade products that will enhance your results.
Fraxel Face Series of 3 - $2500-3000. Price includes full-size medical-grade products that will enhance your results significantly. (savings of up to $800)

Eliminating fat and building muscle non-invasively.
Two therapies in a single treatment.
Looking to achieve a 30% reduction in fat and 25% increase in muscle, with zero effort and in less time than your lunch break?
What if you could eliminate fat and build muscle at the same time? In fact, it is possible to do both in just 30 minutes. EMSCULPT NEO is the first non-invasive body contouring procedure that simultaneously removes fat and builds muscle. It’s the only non-surgical body sculpting procedure available. EMSCULPT NEO stems from the EMSCULPT which simultaneously emits high-intensity electromagnetic energy and radio frequencies. The result is a technologically advanced procedure with the capability to reduce more fat and enhance muscle growth in a lot less time.
The EMSCULPT NEO uses an applicator that emits both radio frequencies (RF) and high-intensity electromagnetic (HIFRM+) energies. The radio frequencies heat muscles and tissue by several degrees. This heat prepares your muscles for stress. Think of it as a pre-workout warmup activity. In just under three minutes, the temperature in subcutaneous fat causes “apoptosis.” This is when fat cells become damaged, and the body begins to remove them. Clinical studies have indicated that that on average, the process reduces subcutaneous fat by about 30%.
HIFEM energy causes muscle fibers to contract. This intensity is not achievable during voluntary workouts. The stress on the muscle causes it to adapt which causes an increase in muscle fibers and cells. Some studies indicate muscles increase in volume by about 25% on average.
The non-invasive medical procedure can be applied to the buttocks, abdomen, calves, thighs, and arms. When applied, it helps to burn fat and sculpt the region by causing muscles to contract and tighten. The supramaximal muscle contractions of the buttocks are often as effective as a Brazilian butt lift which is an invasive body contouring procedure. The EMSCULPT NEO offers similar results without invasive techniques.
Emsculpt NEO procedure is simple and easy. There is no pre-preparation required for this safe procedure. You will lay down while the applicators are applied over the treatment area for 30 minutes. During the fat reduction treatment, you may feel intense yet tolerable heating sensation along with muscle contractions. Once the procedure is completed, you can immediately get back to your daily routine. The Protocol for EMSCULPT NEO is four 30-minute treatments, scheduled 5-10 days apart.
After the treatment, the dead fat cells are flushed out from the body through metabolic processes.
Each patient's results may vary but the best time to see the final results is in 3 months after the last treatment.
Everyday activities can be resumed almost immediately following treatment. Some people feel a little bit sore in the treated areas due to the intensity of the muscle contractions. You may want to avoid working out until the soreness goes away.
Most people see results after about two weeks of their treatment. Follow-up sessions can also continue to improve targeted areas. A session every four to six months can also help maintain a toned, lifted appearance.
The results are long-lasting. Once the body has gotten rid of fat cells, they will not return. It is important to note that you will want to continue to take good care of yourself by observing a healthy, well-balanced diet and regular exercise plan. Working out will help preserve the muscle mass gained from EMSCULPT NEO. A healthy diet can help prevent growth from the fat cells left behind. You can also schedule more sessions to ensure prolonged favorable outcomes. For those who continue with muscle-building exercises, results may last six months or longer. It’s possible for you to enjoy a slimmer, more fit profile for life if an ideal weight is maintained.
EMSCULPT NEO is approved for women and men who are of various fitness levels and body shapes. Individuals who have a BMI of up to 35 are good candidates for the procedure. The FDA has cleared ENSCULPT NEO for fat reduction and muscle toning in these areas:
There are quite a few benefits from the non-invasive procedure, including:
There is no way to compare EMSCULPT NEO with liposuction. Liposuction is an invasive surgical procedure. EMSCULPT NEO is non-invasive. It doesn’t require needles, surgery, anesthesia, special preparations, or planned downtime. It cannot be compared with any other device in the field as no other treatment options reduce fat and promote muscle toning in a single treatment.
No. The treatment is not designed to promote weight loss. However, it does reduce fat and help build muscles. Even slim individuals can enjoy its benefits as it helps build muscle mass.
The procedure is easy and simple. You do not need any preparation. The treatment will last for 30 minutes. During that time, applicators will be applied over the areas you desire to be treated. You may feel tolerable levels of heat and the muscles as they contract. However, you should not feel any pain. After the procedure, you can go back to your daily routine. The protocol is four of these 30-minute treatments spaced five to 10 days apart.

Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF) Hair Treatment is a non-surgical, 100% natural, free of additives and chemicals, packed with powerful cells for skin and FDA cleared hair restoration treatment. It is perfect for both men and women who experience mild to moderate hair loss. PRF Hair Restoration works by stimulating and regenerating dormant hair follicles using your own growth factors and stem cells, while the ACell repairs at the follicle level. The Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) has proteins that regenerate the tissue and prime follicles for new hair growth. It’s ideal for male and female pattern hair loss, hypotrichosis (fine/reduced hairs) of the eyebrows or beard, and metabolic causes (due to iron deficiency and medication). There is no downtime, and the number of treatments may vary.
· Thicker, Fuller Hair
· Reduce Hair Loss Long-term
· Improved Hair Quality
· RESULTS IN AS LITTLE AS 6 WEEKS
Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) therapy works using the body’s own natural healing powers to slow and help to reverse the aging process. It’s a revolutionary repair system that places growth factors in the exact location where we want the skin to repair and rejuvenate itself by working to increase your own collagen. The treatment involves harvesting platelets from the patient’s own blood and injecting them into problem areas. This is then placed in a centrifuge to spin down the blood, which separates the red blood cells from the platelet rich fibrin-The Ultimate Blood concentrate. Platelets contain a high content of “growth factors” – proteins that help to heal injured tissue or damaged skin. Upon re-injection the platelets release their growth factors which trigger surrounding cells to proliferate, in turn stimulating repair, increasing volume and rejuvenating the skin.
Although there are some basic similarities between platelet-rich plasma and platelet-rich fibrin, Platelet -Rich Fibrin stands out as a superior treatment option. They both require the same blood concentrate therapy concept, but PRF is 100% natural and unmodified, while PRP uses additives and chemicals in their vials. PRP requires more blood to be taken than PRF, and PRF is spun at a lower speed creating more tissue healing factors within PRF than is typically seen in PRP. In addition, the lower spin speed causes less trauma to the individual cells of the blood, allowing more stem cells to remain in the final PRF product.
First, we will consult with you to determine if you are a suitable candidate for this treatment. During the treatment we will use a topical analgesic to minimize the discomfort and draw a small amount of blood. Then we will spin it in our centrifuge to activate the fibrin and concentrate more growth factors, white blood cells, and stem cells while separating it from the other blood components. The PRF is then collected which contains your very own platelets and white blood cells and injected into the area of hair loss requiring rejuvenation. The entire procedure takes approximately 45 minutes to an hour and there is no downtime!
The visibility of expected benefits and results of the PRF treatment is typically seen after six weeks from initial treatment. The Long-term effects may take up to three to four months to be noticed and can last from six to 12 months. Results can vary from person to person. For hair loss treatments, we typically recommend 4 consecutive treatments every month followed by quarterly treatments to maintain the results. After a year, the treatment frequency can be reduced, based on the specific requirements of the patient.

People of all ages can have acne and our protocols use a combination of home-based treatments, Acne facials, DermaPeels, light-based treatments and laser treatments.
We encourage you to call our practice, and our friendly staff will be glad to schedule a consultation for you with Dr. Nawab and Kathleen, our master aesthetician to answer any of your questions and assist you with choosing treatments that meet your individual needs.
Acne is the result of your pores blocking and allowing bacteria to grow within. Normally our pores produce oil (sebum) for healthy skin. This sebum becomes a growth medium for bacteria within the pore and the resultant block can lead to whiteheads (trapped sebum and bacteria stay below the skin surface), blackheads (trapped sebum and bacteria become partially exposed and turn black due to melanin (skin pigment)), papule (your pore wall breaks and white blood cells rush in to fight), pustules (several days after the pore breaks, pus goes to the surface), nodule (pore break along the bottom and a large inflamed bump results) or cyst (severe inflammatory reaction with very large pus-filled lesions).
While there is still much controversy about diet and its effect on acne, there are clear links between worsening acne associated with fatty, oily and high-sugar foods and drinks.
Approximately 80% of the population suffers with acne at some point in their lives (as teenagers and adults). Your particular source for acne can be influenced by your age, diet, sun exposure, hormonal influences and genetics. Additionally, the cost and duration of treatment with topical medications and oral antibiotics make standard therapy far from ideal, especially if it’s ineffective. Individual treatment plans will vary from person to person but certain portions of our recommended treatments are clearly effective if done appropriately. We offer multiple types of topical regimens (depending on your skin type and ongoing problem) through our line of medical grade products and do occasionally add oral antibiotics in difficult cases, but we clearly have seen additional benefits with our Fotona Nd:YAG laser.
Acne has increased blood supply, the energy from our Fotona Laser heats up the infected area thus destroying the bacteria.
Accutane causes an effect that makes your skin much more susceptible to the effects of the Lasers and generally, it is recommended that you be off Accutane for 6 months prior to your treatment.
The best treatment pattern is to start off with every 2 week cycles and increase time between treatments as the acne improves.
Spider Vein Treatment
What are Spider Veins?
Spider veins (are also known as telangiectasias) are small superficial thread like veins close to the skin surface. They are more prominent on the face, back and sides of the thigh and just below the knees. These veins are more distinct in fair skinned people, and more common in females. The spider veins may appear spontaneously and they have no symptoms.
How are spider veins treated?
The most important thing to know is that these veins are entirely of a cosmetic concern. There are several options in treating spider veins. We use state-of-art laser equipment providing a series of individualized laser treatments. The laser coagulates the blood inside the vessel, causing your body to harmlessly reabsorb and eliminate it. You are likely to need additional treatments, since our body tends to re-canalize the veins. Laser vein removal is 90 to 95% effective, but results may vary.
Is there any harm in removing spider veins?
Spider veins have no function and removing does no harm. The only reason they are removed is because of their unsightly cosmetic.
Rosacea is an adult skin disease that causes redness, swelling and occasionally, acne like pimples and small blood vessels on the face. Individuals will notice persistent redness in the center of the face, gradually moving out to the cheeks, forehead and chin. Early on, symptoms may come and go, but eventually the redness will persist with pimples and enlarged blood vessels becoming more noticeable. If not recognized and treated, the disease will worsen. Early recognition and treatment are keys to maintaining the health of your skin.
How do I recognize rosacea?
Look for the small, red bumps on the center portion of your face early on. Redness and tiny blood vessels will also become prevalent and more noticeable with blushing and flushing.
What things help and/or worsen rosacea?
Prevention of flares is the most important factor for treating rosacea. The exact cause is unknown. Avoiding hot drinks, alcohol and spicy foods will limit the flushing. Sunblocks are essential for lifetime. Daily use of SPF 15 or higher should be part of a daily routine. Avoiding excessive massaging, scrubbing or rubbing the face and avoiding irritating cosmetics, hair sprays and harsh soaps is also very important. Always exercise in cool environments.
What treatment options help? Our offices offer lines of medical grade skin care products through PCA and SkinMedica (including various sunblocks), as well as, mineral based cosmetics, for daily use. Individualized treatments are necessary, as the degree of rosacea will vary from one person to the next.
What our patients say...
I did A LOT of research before I purchased a package of Fraxel Re:store Dual laser treatments at VitalizeMD, and it was 30% cheaper than Lahey Clinic’s Lexington Dermatology Fraxel Re:store laser package and 1,000% better! I purchased a series of Fraxel Re:store at Lahey two years ago, but I was only half satisfied with the results. Then I recently received Fraxel Re:store services from Dr. Nawab and her esthetician, Christine, at VitalizeMD and I am thrilled with the results!
Dr. Nawab and Christine offer the best of both worlds: you get the advanced technology, safety, and clinical effectiveness of a licensed medical doctor combined with the soothing comfort and know-how of a licensed spa esthetician. Christine’s pre-treatment and prep is what made the laser treatment virtually pain-free. On a scale of 1 – 10 (10 being unbearable pain), I’d say that the application of the laser on my face (multiple passes) was only a 3 or 4. Plus, both Dr. Nawab and Christine are very well educated and experienced about best practices to attain optimal results for your specific skin type. They take the time to listen to your concerns, and then offer great advice without any high-pressure sales tactics. Both Dr. Nawab and Christine sincerely care about your safety, comfort, and achieving the most effective results for your skin. I wish I could give VitalizeMD 10 stars.
Chris K T.
Went in for a series of three Fraxel laser treatments. I was happy to find a super helpful and informative staff that guided me through the process, and three months after the final treatment I’m delighted with the results, and absolutely recommend Vitalize MD.
Dear Dr. Nawab,
I want to personally thank you for my NEW & IMPROVED lips! It is amazing how a little change such as improving your lips can improve your life. I feel 20 years younger. I look in the mirror and I just smile. Sometimes I just smile because; well it has improved all aspects of my life. I researched many different doctors and options from Fillers to Thermage. Your office impressed me; cleanliness, educated staff, and great follow up. Furthermore you did not rush me and you took the time to make sure I was satisfied. I am very happy with the Restylane® and Prevelle Silk®. This is the best present I have ever given myself. I highly recommend Vitalize MD. I look forward to seeing what else Vitalize MD is going to do for me.
It was quite a big step for me to schedule an appointment with Dr. Nawab but she came recommended to me by a close friend who’d had Botox and Restylane treatments. Her results are amazing, she looks 10 years younger. I wanted to do something for myself as I had just turned a big birthday and started to feel conscious about my looks. I asked a lot of questions which Dr. Nawab explained in great details, from safety of the products used, to pain sensations to recovery time. What I especially liked about the procedures is that it’s not an immediate total transformation that everybody would notice, but it’s gradual over a short period of time, so I don’t have to divulge my secret. But I’m happy to recommend Dr. Nawab and her practice for any cosmetics procedures, she’s excellent.
Dr Nawab is the best. She is gentle, caring and listens in order to meet specific needs. I was anxious entering Vitalize MD. My anxiety disappeared as soon as I met with Dr Nawab. Initially, I was there for laser hair removal, but I found myself asking questions about fillers. With Dr Nawab's help, we set up treatment plan. After several fillers and hair removal, I feel and look refreshed and relaxed. There was very minor discomfort but my new look is worth it. Thank you Dr Nawab.
I had been troubled by the first appearances of age spots on my face to the point where I wanted to do something about it. I visited Vitalize MD and was immediately put into total confidence by the staff and Dr. Nawab. The office is very welcoming and calming, I relaxed while I filled out my patient forms, after all I was a little apprehensive. Dr. Zainab examined my face while explaining the different procedures that are available today and took the time to go over my patient information. She recommended a Fraxel treatment and gave me an in-depth explanation of what I should expect, the recovery time and what to look out for after the treatment to protect my face. Dr. Nawab has a light touch and made sure that I knew each step of the procedure, which never felt really uncomfortable. I’ve had a total of three treatments and I am happy to say that I’m 100% satisfied with the results. I feel very good about recommending Dr. Nawab to anyone entertaining the ideas of skin repair.
I made an appointment with Vitalize MD to see if I could do something about the handful acne scars I have on my face. I had just ended my Accutane treatment and I had hoped that my skin would heal naturally. Unfortunately, I had a number of scars on my cheeks that I felt self-conscious about, and I was hoping to be able to erase them, if erase is the right term. When I first met Dr. Nawab, she explained that I would have to wait a good six month after the end of the Accutane treatment before starting any skin procedures and I was quite disappointed. On the other hand, it’s my face, and I would rather wait some more and make sure that the treatment is the safest possible. It’s now been 3 months since my laser treatment and I could not be more pleased. The whole experience was positive in every aspect, from the first meeting when I received a lot of information, to the series of procedures and the outcome. Dr. Nawab is patient, calm and reassuring; I can’t thank you enough for restoring my confidence.
Before I got acne, I never thought I would ever be in such a situation until I turned the age of fourteen. At first I didn't care so much because I thought it was going to go right away. I was wrong! I started using all these kinds of products that my family and friends told me about. Nothing worked. I would switch to a different product once I noticed that I have been using a certain product for too long and didn't make a difference. My skin would just get worse. This went on for about four years. But as Dr. Nawab was my physician, I asked her if she knew about anything that can help my skin get better. That’s when she told me about Revive MD. I scheduled for a visit right away. In less than a month of using the products I got from Vitalize MD, I could see the difference. I couldn't believe it! At some point I thought it was a dream, but it was real! Ever since then, my skin is very smooth. I am so grateful that I met Dr. Nawab because if I hadn't met her I would probably still try to use some other products that wouldn't help. Dr. Nawab you are the reason why I now look at my face in the mirror and get an endless smile. I am so thankful for the change you made in my life.
My experience with Dr. Nawab has been surprising, in a very good way. I went to her on a whim and now am thankful I did. She was welcoming, kind, gentle and mostly honest and fair. She did not pressure me, nor did she try to sell me products or services, she even gave me time and privacy to make the right decision . The treatment I had was not what I expected, it was much better. A problem I have been dealing with for many years, she understands what women want and she has an artistic eye, in a natural way that doesn't make one look fake. I highly recommend her.

Dr. Nawab is so knowledgeable, caring, and professional. I couldn't have asked for a better experience at Vitalize MD - The office is chic, welcoming, and relaxing. I had bad acne scars and purchased a series of three Fraxel restore treatments. My skin has never looked better and I'm so happy! Thank you, Vitalize MD, for your expertise. I would continue all of my Fraxel, as well as the other treatments here. Although I live in Boston, it's worth the drive. Highly recommended, with five-star service!

Office is beautiful and calm. Kathy was wonderful as my aesthetician. I enjoyed my facial very much. Best facial I have ever had. Kathy was very informative but not pushy with trying to sell their products. I would highly recommend this office.

After doing a long search in treatments for sun spots and melasma fading I opted for Fraxel treatments. I feel so happy and lucky to find the place that offers exactly what I wanted. Great products and excellent service. Thank You Dr. Nawab for your professionalism and charisma!

From the receptionist to the treatments, everything in this shop is kind, honest and reasonable. I have been to many being now 60 so trust me on this. They all know what they are doing and they will tell you honestly what they suggest to help you help yourself.

This is my first time doing any laser treatment, so I wasn't sure what to expect. I finished my 2nd of 3 spider vein removal sessions and the results for me are very satisfying. It has made the larger clusters fade significantly and be less noticeable. The smaller veins have all but disappeared. I am very happy with the outcome so far and can not wait for my final treatment. Maybe I'll even wear shorts this coming Summer (something that I've never done). Dr. Nawab is fantastic. She takes the time to understand her clients goals and answers ALL questions. Her professionalism and ease are comforting when discussing options and during the treatments. Pam, the Receptionist, is friendly, professional and welcoming. She is very much a people person and it shows. She has a great personality and I like talking with her. If you are thinking about having any treatments done, THIS IS DEFINITELY THE CENTER you want to go to. I am a very cautious person and feel that I have made the correct choice.
Dr. Zainab Nawab and her staff are extremely professional. I have been to other centers in the past, but Vitalize MD really tops all. I highly recommend Dr. Zainab.
