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.

Led by Dr. Lisa Davis—who earned her doctorate at the University of Birmingham School of Optometry—a team of opticians and friendly staffers help guests correct their vision while flaunting their unique personal style.

After exams, staff members outfit guests with contacts or help them express themselves with Vera Wang and Ted Baker frames made with plastic, wire, or bits of their third-grade art homework. The office itself features a bit of aesthetic splendor, with arched doorways that hang over sleek hardwood floors, and a cobblestone reception desk that greets patients as they enter.
