Dr. Gerald R. Phelan is no stranger to cutting-edge medical treatments. He participated in the FDA study for VelaSmooth, an advanced cellulite-reduction device, and routinely performs other noninvasive medical aesthetics procedures as the director of Chestnut Hill Aesthetics Center. When he’s not helping to put new treatments on the market, Dr. Phelan oversees the center’s qualified staff as they take aim at unwanted body hair, wrinkles, and spider veins. When the doctor and his team turn their attention to skin on the face, they use IPL photofacials and microdermabrasion wands to clear away sun damage, rosacea, and embarrassing smudges of mom’s lipstick.
Inside the Rittenhouse Women's Wellness Center, DermaCenter Medical Spa is an oasis for women who want to improve the appearance and health of their skin without going under the knife.

They work toward achieving the best results, whether it be smooth, wrinkle-free skin after an injection of Dysport or flawlessly complected legs after spider-vein removal. And because their treatments aren't invasive, most require little to no downtime and allow clients to get back to their normal lives.
