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.

Cold Stone's ice cream inhabits a quantum flux between soft-serve and traditional ice cream, with a rich, creamy texture that whispers tales of its super-premium quality as it glides over taste buds. The ice cream generously welcomes dozens of toppings, as traditional as crumbled cookies and chopped nuts or as quirky as granola and black licorice. Choose your favorite ice cream from among dozens of silky flavors, such as Irish cream and butter pecan. Then make certain no one will try and steal a taste by topping it protectively with brownies, gumballs, and peach pie filling. Whatever Frankencream you create, it'll be scooped cold off the frozen granite stone into a freshly made waffle cone or bowl. Cold Stone's ice cream and toppings vary between seasons and location, and they also offer non-dairy sorbet and an array of lighter toppings such as fruit and honey. Ice-cream creations run between $4 and $6, depending on size.

If you're willing to let someone operate on your eyes with a laser, what's the one thing they better have? Steady hands are important, sure, but how about experience? All told, The LASIK Vision Institute's doctors have performed more than one million eye surgeries at 57 locations nationwide. Across its network, the company has independent veteran surgeons who are all LASIK experts.

Technology has played a major role in LVI?s success, as well. Each location relies on FDA-approved laser technology that results in minimal discomfort and short recovery times, in addition to helping many patients see 20/20 or better.

Though SEE Eyewear’s specs are only found in their stores, their designs sprout from imaginations around the world. Winner of reader's choice awards in cities ranging from San Francisco to Nashville, SEE Eyewear stocks its frames directly from fashionable frame crafters and passes on the savings of doing business at the source to customers. The company calls on fashion designers from France, Italy, and other style-conscious countries to create one-of-a-kind designs to be featured on store shelves and client faces. Before that happens, though, each potential frame goes through a rigorous design and review process to ensure its distinctiveness and quality before it can be added to the national eyewear shop’s exclusive coveted selection.

From cat-eye to horn-rimmed and perfectly round to wayfarer-inspired, the cost of each frame includes single-vision lenses, giving customers the simplicity of a flat price that doesn’t require customers to pay an extra prescription fee or mine their own bifocal quarry. SEE Eyewear also trains its staff members to be aesthetically savvy so they can find the perfect fashion-forward, vision-correcting specs for any face shape, mood, or fashion sense.
