Best of Boston

2009 Best Day Spa, West

Ardan MedSpa + Salon

The cutting edge comes well padded at this lovely little med-spa, which despite its high-tech laser hair removal and ultrasonic facials keeps the emphasis on ‘spa’—and all the sensuous pampering that implies. Pedicures are made heavenly by cushy chairs with lumbar massage; body treatments baby the skin with organic products imported from Italy. Overseeing it all is a cadre of solicitous (not fawning) staffers, who keep the human touch at the fore.
