Beauty and wellness are one and the same at Merle Norman Cosmetics & Day Spa. Though they specialize in makeup application with their titular cosmetics line, the licensed aestheticians also perform waxing, microdermabrasions, and body treatments.
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.
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.

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.
The stylists and spa professionals at Salon Eden can pamper clients from head to toe. Hairstyling services for men and women include everything from cuts and perms to highlights and deep-conditioning treatments. Meanwhile, skin gets special attention during facial treatments that can incorporate hydrating algae masks or therapeutic deep-tissue massages, while specialty skincare treatments such as derma-rolling aim to jump start collagen production and smooth acne scars. And, for extra flourish, the specialists here can administer eyelash perms, extensions, and tints so guests can stop using mascara or clipping hair extensions to their eyelids.

Inside the spa?s sauna, infrared light penetrates every exposed pore, with the aim of purging toxins and dropping pounds.
