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.
Dermea Laser and Medical Skin Care is not a spa. It?s not a salon. And it?s definitely not one of those places where they make mediocre burgers but people still go because the servers pretend to be rude to you. But it is the aesthetics branch of Get Well Clinics, which means it relies on medical-grade equipment and procedures to remove body hair and refresh the skin. One such piece of equipment is the LightSheer diode laser system, a popular machine that can remove hair from all six types of skin on the Fitzpatrick scale. Another is the microdermabrasion machine, which reduces the appearance of wrinkles, acne, and scars, especially when it?s coupled with the alpha-hydroxy acids of the clinic?s glycolic peels.
Bellevue Medispa exalts the power of Iridex lasers to gently reveal smooth, healthy skin. Both FDA-cleared, their two lasers nimbly zap body hair and varicose veins without ablating the skin's surface or accidentally taking out nearby Darth Vader impersonators. The warm beams also stimulate cellular renewal to rejuvenate weathered complexions and gently assuage rosacea and acne inflammation. Staffers have more than six years of experience with cosmetic injections, which they are certified to administer safely in their office or your home, halting wrinkles and plumping skin on-location.
The Ritz Salon's stylists cut and trim the locks of men and women, often using balayage, a French hair-painting technique, to tint strands. Aestheticians completely remove hair during facial waxes and slough off dead skin with microdermabrasion crystals. They further rid your body of unwanted entities with ionic footbaths that detoxify and reduce the need for family members to wear hazmat suits around you.
The stylists at Salon Atash Hair & Brow Bar combine Middle Eastern practices with sophisticated style to transform above-the-shoulder beauty with haircare and eyebrow services. Inside the salon, stylists cut and style hair, adding drama with vibrant color and dimension with partial and full highlights. At the brow bar, stylists perfect arches with waxing, threading, and makeup.
