A board-certified nurse, a laser technician, an aesthetician, and a cosmetic-injectable expert comprise the med spa team at Rejuvenation Group that helps clients reach their beauty goals. Blue-light therapy, peels, and microdermabrasion resurface complexions, while skin-clarifying experts strive to permanently banish hair and tattoos with laser treatments.
In addition to aesthetic treatments, Rejuvenation Group also offers purely medical therapies. Melan Smith-Francis, a certified nurse-midwife and family nurse practitioner who is currently earning her doctorate, provides services including hormone therapy, family planning, and basic exams.
Clad in clean, white lab coats, the certified laser technicians and registered nurses at Skin Renew Laser & Vein Clinic use lasers to target tufts of body hair, spider veins, and wrinkles. Dermal fillers firm the face, and blue-light photodynamic therapy destroys the bacteria that exacerbate acne. The technicians also proffer pharmaceutical-grade skincare products from Obagi to maintain healthy skin at home or on planets where the atmosphere is too thin to dampen the sun's rays.
While most of his peers were concentrating on their senior year of high school, 17-year-old Steven Bengelsdorf kept an eye toward the future and accepted a spot in Boston University’s prestigious six-year medical program. Fifteen years later, the gifted youth has transformed into an experienced physician who oversees a staff of nurses and medical aestheticians at The Franklin Center for Skin & Laser Surgery.
Dr. Bengelsdorf and his staff believe that minimally invasive treatments—chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and light-based therapy, to name a few—can rejuvenate the face just as effectively as surgical procedures and bobbing for live electrical wires. Personal consultations and examinations typify the individual approach they take to each treatment, and Dr. Bengelsdorf’s dedication to innovation has resulted in the facility’s penchant for technologically advanced solutions.
The technicians at LaserDerm MedSpa & Wellness Center wield lasers to smooth and contour bodies. They specialize in laser hair removal to permanently reduce fuzz on bikini lines, underarms, and toes. To whittle down excess curves, they activate a Zerona device that uses low-level lasers to cause fat cells to release their contents as clients lie down and relax, read, or listen to the Tuvan throat singing playing on their iPod. Additionally, the center offers treatments for skin issues such as lines, scars, or sun damage.
Dr. Sharon Browning takes aim at unwanted veins on the legs and face as she wields noninvasive Cynosure laser technology. After a brief consultation, she numbs the treatment area with an anesthetic cream, then routs the broken capillaries and spidery vessels often responsible for aching, burning, and cramps of the appendages. Laser light converts into comfortable levels of focused heat, which then converts into tiny ghosts that cause veins to blanch or retreat into the body entirely. The two sessions of the second option may be performed during two different visits or back-to-back.
Growing Younger's squad of physicians and staffers blends hormonal balance with natural and prescription remedies personalized to each patient to help to slim physiques, boost vigor, and make skin appear more youthful. Botox injections, dermal fillers, facials, and SkinMedica products all work to smooth wrinkles and produce glowing visages. Bodies follow suit as the doctors and staff aim to hone in on hormonal imbalances that advance weight gain and aid in shedding pounds with hCG diets, appetite suppressants, lipotropic injections, and installations of anticheeseburger electric fences. To polish off slimmer physiques, a pair of laser treatments exiles unwanted hair from bodies, and different lasers enhance skin tones, iron out wrinkles, and reduce redness.
