In 1990, after a career as a New York runway model, Helena Cohen founded Ardan Medspa + Salon. Named after her two sons, Aria and Daniyel, Ardan became the spot in Boston for all things hair, skin care, and beauty. Located in beautiful Wellesley, Massachusetts in a prime down-town spot, Ardan quickly took off as the spa for locals and celebrities alike.
Helena describes Ardan as a “results-driven” Medspa and Salon. Helena tests each product herself before selling them, creating an atmosphere of trust with her many clients. She practices an extremely healthy lifestyle (she does not smoke, drink, or eat meat), and this helps her maintain her young appearance and glow at 67 years old. This lifestyle, along with her extensive skin care routine, allows her to go makeup-free nearly every day.
Ardan, through Helena’s inspiration, views “the face as a picture, and the hair as a frame.” So, she promotes healthy skin care routines and Medspa treatments for the picture, and tries to fit the haircut, or frame, to accentuate each person’s beautiful features.
If you’re looking for a “normal” feel-good facial, Ardan is not your spa. Ardan is a Medspa, so we do facials that work- such as Clinical Facials and Hydrafacials. And, we believe you should get a massage while you do it, too, because why not? Ardan is about spoiling yourself, as well. We don’t stop at facials and haircuts, either. Ardan does new and improved Yumi lashes, body treatments, injectables, laser hair removal, brows, waxing, and more.
