Naomi Fenlin, LE, CME
Owner + Treatment Provider
First and foremost, Naomi Fenlin is a mom. After watching one of her daughters suffer year after year with terrible cystic Acne, Fenlin desperately wanted to find a solution to clear her daughter’s skin. No product worked, no prescription did what was intended, and in the end Naomi’s daughter was left frustrated, depressed, and still acne-ridden. Never a quitter, Naomi entered the world of aesthetics in an effort to learn how to fix the root of her daughter’s skin problem. After years of experimentation and study, Fenlin developed her own Acne protocol and has since established a unique method of using lasers to erase all signs of current and past acne.
The original founder of Cosmopolitan Skin Care, Naomi Fenlin, Laser Technician and Certified Medical Esthetician, began Philadelphia-based About Face Skin Care in 2011 in order to create a skin care business specifically honed to satisfy the skin care needs and wants of her patients. Naomi brings decades of health care experience to her work. Having completed her undergraduate education at Philadelphia College of Textiles and Science, Naomi went on to graduate school at the Rhode Island School of Design, and Widener Law School. Her vast and varied educational and professional experiences are evident in all aspects of her Aesthetic Practice.
In the field of skincare Naomi Fenlin has established herself as an expert in a variety of areas. As the first owner of the Solta “Isolaz” Acne Laser sold in the country, Fenlin has performed thousands of Isolaz acne treatments, and is a regular speaker for Isolaz at National Medical Spa conferences. Naomi Fenlin is also an instructor for Thermage laser skin tightening and Fraxel skin-resurfacing treatments, demonstrating and teaching doctors, nurses, aestheticians and other healthcare professionals across the country how to best perform this wonderful skin tightening and body contouring procedure.
As founder of an elite National group of skincare providers whose mission it is to establish and maintain the highest Medical Aesthetic performance standards, she is in continuous communication with many of the most recognized and respected Medical Aesthetic skincare practitioners in the Country. Naomi Fenlin’s expertise is often sought on a variety of skin care treatments by providers from States across the Country.
With outstanding patient results as her focus, Fenlin’s never-ending mission is to provide Philadelphia with the highest quality of professional skin care possible.
And her daughter? If you saw her, you’d be hard-pressed to believe she wasn’t born with the perfect, porcelain, blemish-free skin she now has.
