Haute Secrets Boston: Alexa Nicholls Costa & Alexandra Rogers of Boston’s LexRx

The nurse practitioners and co-founders of LexRx know the secret to putting your best face forward takes just a little help. At their newest location on Newbury Street in Boston (there is a second location in Lynnfield), Alexa Nicholls Costa and Alexandra Rogers offer a boutique aesthetic practice focusing solely on BOTOX and dermal filler treatments. Think of it as the Drybar of aesthetic treatments.

The LexRx’s co-founders offer a curated service menu, creatively trademarked as ‘The LexRx LineUp,’ that includes easy-to-understand illustrations and treatment education for clients. For example, the Pretty Peepers treatment smooths out crow’s feet with BOTOX while Pucker Up plumps lips with dermal filler.
