Jennifer Dalponte, Medical Aesthetician
Jennifer Dalponte is a licensed medical esthetician for over 20 years! Her passion for skin care started as a teenager when she struggled from severe acne and post acne pigmentation. Her skin’s struggles and frustrations motivated her to want to learn as much as she could about the largest organ of our body, our skin.
Jen has worked as an esthetician in luxury spas, dermatology offices, plastic surgeon offices and medical spas. Her experience is in microdermabrasion, microneedling with PRP (vampire facial), IPL facials, laser hair removal, chemical peels, detox and acne treatments as well as eyebrow design.
When Jen is not practicing esthetics, she likes to spend her time with her family. You can find her on the weekends chasing after her three children! Her hobbies are writing esthetics blogs, nature adventures with her family, and cooking and volunteering in American Cancer Society programs like “Look Good, Feel Better“ and at the Burn Center in Saint Barnabas Hospital.
“Our skin is our first impression. It is an investment that nobody will ever regret investing into. To prevent and to maintain is a lot less time and money then to fix and repair so I tell my patients there is always something our skin can use and it will always be worth the attention when we care for our esthetics needs.” – Jen
