There’s a new (med) spa in town. Located in Hamilton, Feather’s Med Spa is the manifestation of nurse practitioner Stephanie Barbeau, whose personal interest in skin preservation led her to open a spa with a multi-faceted approach to skincare.

Feather’s offers medical grade services, but the atmosphere is quite different from what you’d find in a standard medical office. From the moment you walk through the door you can’t help but feel at ease. The entire facility is bathed in gray and white, accented by cozy area rugs and treatment rooms outfitted with plush bedding.



Barbeau works alongside a handpicked staff of esthetic and laser certified specialists who are as passionate about skincare as she is, including medical director Dr. Michele Sasmor from Riversong Plastic Surgery in Newburyport and medical esthetician Melissa Christie. They perform a wide range of services, including Hyaluronic fillers, Neurotoxin injections and Vi chemical peels. Medical grade laser treatments, which can aid hair reduction, skin tightening, spot correction, skin rejuvenation and vein reduction, are in high demand with clients. Laser sessions are minimally invasive and the benefits are noticeable immediately after treatment, making these services popular because people “love to see results right away” says Barbeau – and who can blame them!

Clients can also book hydrafacials, waxing, eye lash tinting, microneedling, collagen facials, dermaplaning and Lightfusion treatments.

Feather’s participates with DocPay, a great option for anyone preferring to make scheduled payments over time. Using this service, a client is also able to set a desired amount to spend for the year and schedule appointments accordingly.



Employees maintain strict HIPAA compliance, and clients can count on total discretion if they prefer to receive treatments without interacting with other spa patrons. As much as they value privacy, the team is extremely friendly and open to visitors. Everyone is happy to walk existing and potential clients through treatments, answer questions or make recommendations about individual treatment regimens.

Barbeau emphasizes that Feather’s is a “spa for everyone – women, men and teenagers.” Whether it’s a man coming in for a waxing service or a female client who combines a HydraFacial and Botox in a single visit there is something to enhance and improve every skin type. The spa carries a natural mineral line using all organic ingredients from Massachusetts based Jane Iredale. Feather’s is named after Barbeau’s only child, a son, who passed away unexpectedly five years ago. Shortly thereafter, she began seeing feathers regularly and felt a connection to them and her son. Many of these feathers have been framed and can be seen around the spa, giving special meaning to the whole experience.

Feather’s is currently running a promotion of 20 percent off services for you and a family member or friend, an incredible deal perfectly suited for a little summertime rest and relaxation.
