After more than 30 years of nursing experience, which includes membership in the Dermatology Nurse Association and the American Society for Plastic Surgical Nurses, Lillian Lang, RN, decided to focus her career on aesthetics. Her blend of clinical expertise and artistry has now been seen on four continents. Her services include sclerotherapy, chemical peels, photofacials, and laser hair removal to remove unwanted hairs. With more than 23 years and having achieved Master Status in permanent makeup, Lillian Lang specializes in applying permanent eyebrows, eyeliner, and lip color.
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 Juv?derm 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.
Growing up in Panama as the daughter of a biochemist, naturist, and conservationist, and the sister of a biologist, Ana Pesce was bound to feel a connection with nature. So it's only natural that her facials and body scrubs use all-organic products and ingredients such as botanical extracts, arnica, seaweed, and resveratrol.
At Ana Pesce Skin Care, she combines ancient holistic traditions with contemporary treatments such as microdermabrasions and LED light therapy. She also relies on Swedish and hot-stone massages to mollify muscular aches and waxing to get rid of unwanted hair.
Jardin Medical Spa springs several spa services on Philadelphia's faces, but only two have been set aside for Groupon users. The chemical peel efficiently and effectively treats skin that's been damaged by the harsh winter sun, unevenly pigmented, unfairly wrinkled, or unwisely replaced with a hologram. The spa's sugarcane-based glycolic peel improves texture and tone, adding a healthier look to faces while helping reduce future aging agitators such as age spots or faded pigmentation. At 15 minutes, the chemical peel is also one of the fastest cosmetic procedures available, topped only by a goblet of vitriol tossed in the face by a spiteful Victorian mistress.

Drs. Ryan Heffelfinger, Howard Krein, and Edmund Pribitkin share a distinction in their field: each holds the title of fellow from the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. Together, the distinguished doctors and their team of anesthesiologists, registered nurses, and a medical aesthetician operate Jefferson Facial Plastics on the grounds of Thomas Jefferson University Hospitals. They focus their efforts on plastic and reconstructive surgery for the head, face, and neck, with services ranging from face lifts to hair transplants.
Jefferson Facial Plastics’ therapies also include noninvasive med-spa services such as facials, microdermabrasion, and laser hair removal. The doctors also perform humanitarian work both locally and abroad, including traveling to Guatemala to repair children's cleft lips.
