Services customized specifically to customers’ needs
You can’t miss the giant, pine tree woman (carved by a local artist) adorning the front lawn of Mac Med Spa at 127 E. Main St. in Milford, and after meeting owner Debbie MacDonald, you may think it bears a certain resemblance to her, with flowing hair and a heart cradled in hand.
MacDonald loves making customers feel special, relaxed and comfortable as they take advantage of the many innovative services her business offers — everything from the traditional manicures, pedicures, facials, hairstyling and massages to the progressive modalities of laser pain management, colonics, liposuction, body contouring, weight loss diets and vitamin drips.
After attending the Eleanor F. Roberts Electrology School in Boston, MacDonald started her career as an electrologist in the late ’70s, opening her first business at age 19 in Framingham, which stands today as one of Mac Med’s three locations. In 1982, she opened a second business in Hopedale, performing the Miracle Spectra Laser on acne treatments, ear piercing, tattoo removal and permanent makeup.
When laser hair removal techniques started in the ’90s, MacDonald was quick to expand her Framingham office to include that new offering, remortgaging her home to afford the appropriate equipment to service her clients well.
The bulk of services are offered at the Milford location, with three separate buildings for varying services. The Victorian is known as the quiet building, as it houses spa offerings, including facials, massages, spray or mist tanning, laser hair removal and skin tightening. The salon offers nail and hair services. The medical building houses two physicians who conduct the more discreet services, such as colonics, vaser liposuction and hair transplants.
“I love to make a person feel as if he or she is our only client,” MacDonald stated brightly. “We customize our facials and mix and match services to meet your needs, catering to your skin type and sensitivities.”
MacDonald’s sister, Doreen Nasuti, after graduating from the Boston School of Electrology, joined the team at Mac Med 35 years ago. Together, the sisters try out every treatment modality themselves in order to understand the process, experience and benefits, so they might accurately describe any given treatment to customers.
“We make every service as private, quiet and comfortable as possible,” MacDonald said. “When you come to Mac Med, we like to say that you’ve entered a stress-free zone. Our passion is to pamper you.”
Colleagues in the industry consider Debbie MacDonald a progressive and innovative businessperson. She is constantly updating services by auditioning new products and equipment to create superior opportunities to meet clienteles’ needs.
Most recently, MacDonald added a non-toxic organic line of products (deodorant, sunblock, shampoo, etc.) to accompany the non-toxic facial and massage treatments offered.
Currently, she is vetting a new laser technique that mixes two different beam depths together and can address issues in all layers of a person’s skin, as well as a skin care machine that uses ultrasound waves, resulting in an amazing facial.
