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. Dr. Leslie Saltzman and her team of female physicians and aestheticians specialize in the science side of the spa experience. 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.
Registered nurse Kathleen DeSimone and Inject Beauty’s talented team of medical professionals use nonsurgical procedures to enhance the natural beauty of patients. Armed with certified training in procedures such as Botox and dermal fillers, they work to make faces feel smooth. Eyebrows, eyelashes, and lip lines can be adorned with permanent makeup, spider veins are reduced to mere memory with sclerotherapy treatments, and mesotherapy or Lipodissolve injections target fatty areas. They also eliminate excess hair with beams from a Cutera Xeo CoolGlide laser machine.
The team at Bella Medspa comprises osteopathic physicians, nurses, laser technicians, and medical aestheticians, all of whom focus their skills on restoring youthful facets to faces. They use DiamondTome microdermabrasion technology to buff away dead skin cells and minimize age spots, and beauty injections to tame wrinkles and plump up features that have lost volume. Different injections, along with IPL treatments, help to reduce signs of aging, whereas flashes of laser light zap unwanted body hair on nearly any area of the anatomy.

What is one fun, unusual fact about your business?
We often have a furry, four-legged canine greeter in attendance who personally ensures that every patient feels welcome and well-announced.
What steps do you take to make your clients feel at ease?
We consult with them beforehand to get a feel for what their concerns are, what they hope to achieve for the future, and what has and hasn't worked for them in the past. We thoroughly answer their questions, and our injector has a very warm, friendly personality helps patients feel comfortable in her care.
Jan N. Widerman, MaxAesthetics' medical director and a 28-year board-certified physician, leads a team of licensed aestheticians and laser technicians as they give youth a curtain call with a full spectrum of medical-based skin and beauty treatments. Dr. Widerman utilizes his certification in injectables such as Botox and Juvéderm to tackle evidence of aging, and laser technicians wield Soprano XL and Pixel laser technology to retexturize skin. Nourishing facials, microdermabrasions, and body peels feature Rhonda Allison's plant-based palette of enzymes, toners, and exfoliants. Rounding out the center's complete devotion to beauty cultivation, a board-certified permanent-makeup technician stands by to refurnish clients' most visible traits.
Dr. Harold Farber's technique has been described by some as "artful poetry in motion." It could have something to do with his state-of-the-art equipment—which he uses to assess patients' health and dermal conditions—or the fact that he allays concerns by explaining his every move during treatments.
At Center for Dermatology, Laser and Cosmetic Surgery, he oversees a team of dermatologists who correct issues such as acne, sun damage, and signs of aging. The team follows Dr. Farber's lead by keeping abreast of the latest techniques, be it the sloughing off of dead skin cells through microdermabrasion or the illuminating of complexions with chemical peels or a steady hand with a spotlight.
