Mass General is known as a leading provider of life-saving care, and our renowned Laser and Cosmetic Center is known for providing life-enhancing treatments to help you look and feel your best.

No other center in Boston offers offers the extensive list of services available at Mass Geneal, with the expertise of renowned Mass General physicians.  In collaboration with the Wellman Center of Photomedicine, we continue to make major contributions to innovative technologies by developing the theory behind techniques such as non-scarring laser surgery, fractional laser skin resurfacing, and fat removal by controlled cooling.   From inception, our physicians are actively involved in the development of new technologies, earning them the reputation as international leaders in the field and the experts that other dermatologists often turn to for clinical questions.

About Us

Welcome to the Dermatology Laser and Cosmetic Center at Massachusetts General Hospital. Our board-certified dermatologists (skin doctors), who have extensive laser and cosmetic training, perform treatments, allowing us to offer personalized treatment plans while ensuring your safety and satisfaction.

For more than two decades, our doctors have developed a reputation as international leaders in the field of cosmetic dermatology. In addition to performing treatments, our Harvard-trained doctors have published hundreds of scientific papers and textbooks, and many hold prestigious positions in the field of cosmetic dermatology.

Today, there are many choices for cosmetic treatments and our doctors are uniquely qualified to help you cut through the clutter to customize a non-surgical, personalized treatment that’s right for you.

We offer a wide variety of services to improve your skin using the latest FDA-approved treatments. Our extensive collection of laser and light source devices, as well as the latest anti-aging therapies, allows our doctors to offer treatments that are specifically tailored to your personal goals.

I am always delighted with the doctor's concern for safe and effective procedures and outcomes.

The Mass General Difference

Our doctors serve people in the Boston area and around the world helping them to achieve a healthy, natural look that is not artificial or overdone.

  • We perform hundreds of treatments each year and our doctors are known for their cosmetic artistry as much as their medical skills to provide you with a natural new look that will make you feel confident and refreshed.
  • At our center, you can count on receiving the same comprehensive, expert care that you have come to trust from Massachusetts General Hospital.
