Meet Dr. Holly Happe
A More Beautiful You
Ever since I was a young girl, I have always appreciated beauty. From my years in the Joffrey Ballet Company, to my current Ashtanga yoga practice, this has manifested itself in my life in many ways.
So it’s only natural that when I trained as a doctor and joined the faculty of the Harvard Medical School, I would be drawn to the skin-care and aesthetics side of the medical world. After I was rigorously trained in the most modern and advanced medical aesthetic treatment methods, I was awarded a diploma in aesthetic medicine by the American Academy of Aesthetic Medicine, and I started my medical aesthetics practice in 2006.
Today, I work hard to offer the best medical aesthetics treatments at Dr. Happe Medical Aesthetics, in the best possible environment: a private and discreet location with no signage on the street. My patients come from in and around Boston, Newton, Wellesley, Weston, Waltham, Watertown, Lexington, and Concord, as well as all across Massachusetts, for BOTOX®, dermal fillers, chemical peels, Kybella®, platelet-rich plasma treatments, and other aesthetic services. Many patients travel to be treated at my medical spa, from the North and South Shores, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Connecticut—even flying in from Cape Cod for cosmetic treatments.
I believe in a subtle, “less-is-more” approach to aesthetic treatments. This means people won’t notice that you had work done. They’ll just notice how great you look!
Over the years I have had hundreds of satisfied patients. I would welcome you to become one of them.

Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine Details
Want to know more about us? Dr. Happe is a doctor of osteopathic medicine (D.O.). If you are confused about what a D.O. is, this description from the American Osteopathic Association will help you understand.
Doctors of osteopathic medicine (DOs) are fully licensed physicians who practice in every medical specialty. They provide a full range of services, from prescribing drugs to performing surgery, and they use the latest medical tools. But DOs offer something special: their unique approach to patient care.
Here is another article from Consumer Reports.
The four years of medical education for D.O.s largely matches M.D. programs, but also includes 200 hours in osteopathic manipulative medicine, hands-on techniques designed mainly to treat pain. These doctors participate in many of the same residency programs as M.D.s and can specialize in anything from pediatrics to psychiatry to surgery. One of four U.S. medical students now attends an osteopathic medical school.

“D.O.s are virtually interchangeable from M.D.s,” says Susan Hingle, M.D., chair of the Board of Regents of the American College of Physicians. They provide a full range of medical care for all types of diseases and health problems, but they may be especially good at treating musculoskeletal conditions such as lower back pain and less likely to prescribe drugs for that problem, according to a 2015 study in the Journal of the American Osteopathic Association. …
A D.O. can serve as your doctor in any case where you might seek an M.D. … And by seeing a D.O., you get the benefit of his or her extra training in the musculoskeletal system.
