Jeaneen Dwyer, RN, MSN
At the age of 16, I decided to become a nurse and never looked back. I received my BSN from Villanova University, and my MSN from Seton Hall University. I worked in many areas of nursing, including the intense bedside in New York City to teaching clinical at the bedside for Felician College. I enjoyed them all, and still love what I do. After ten years of nursing at The New York Hospital, I moved to New Jersey and started a family. It was then, that I met Dr. Loverme and joined the staff in 2002. Here, along with an amazing staff, I enjoy the rare combination of science and art – something nursing and plastic surgery epitomize.

Brenda is a highly committed professional who has worked in the skin care industry since 2007. Brenda has worked in Dermatology offices offering results oriented facial treatments. “The advantage of working within a medical practice is the ability to supply patients with pharmaceutical-grade products, which are more potent than those available over the counter. These products actually change your skin at a cellular level, resulting in a therapeutic cascade that makes you skin healthier. It also means that Chemical Peels I use work deeper and have a greater effectiveness than ones used in salons.”
Due to her immense passion for skin care, Brenda keeps current with all the latest skin care and services in the industry. Brenda brings the knowledge and education of being an independent trainer for Micro-Needling for skin rejuvenation. Brenda also specializes in Teen Acne Treatments and education.
