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.
As a licensed threading boutique, The Brow Spa knows all about the ancient Indian hair-removal technique. During this signature service, staff use twisted strands of cotton to remove hair from the brow, leaving behind an extremely precise line. The service can be used to remove hair from other parts of the face and body and is especially popular with people whose skin can become irritated by wax. Aside from threading, technicians perform services ranging from herbal facials to henna tattoo applications.
