Our practice is focused on preventing aging skin, treating diseased skin, and maintaining youthful results for a lifetime. Instead of addressing the skin's superficial appearance, we correct and repair skin cells using customized and comprehensive treatment plans. We are trained in the latest skin aesthetic procedures and can recommend the best one for your desired results.
As a board-certified Nurse Practitioner, Emily Rockwell (BS Nursing – UVA, MS Nursing - U. Penn), has made a career out of helping others heal. But it was her own physical pain that drove her to create her practice. Since high school, Emily had suffered from TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint Disorders) and headaches. Unable to find relief and frustrated with conventional treatments like physical therapy, dental appliances, massage, and steroid injections, Emily began to research additional options. Working with her father, Dr. G. William Keller, a Periodontist and Implantologist for 30 years, Emily found her solution with Botox. In 2015, her and her father attended a course which provided a unique outlook on TMJ's assessment and management and facial pain with Botox. Once Emily received the Botox injections, she felt a dramatic decline in her physical pain.
Wanting to help others who suffer from chronic pain, she worked in an Oculofacial Plastic Surgery office, where she learned how to administer Botox and Fillers while continuing to train in how to provide TMJ pain management to patients. A year later, with her father's encouragement, she created The Montchanin Center for Facial Aesthetics in 2017, to help people feel better through both therapeutic and aesthetic treatments.
Emily follows the example of Dr. Zein Obagi, the world-renowned Cosmetic Dermatologist who, for more than 35 years, has pioneered advanced skincare solutions. Obagi's research is focused on correcting and repairing skin at the cellular level. Through her trainings with Dr. Obagi, Emily established her business's core philosophy - skin treatments shouldn’t simply provide a quick fix or a cover up. Instead, the goal is to promote long-term, sustainable skin health. With this, she rebranded her business (Emily Rockwell Skin Clinic) where each patient's treatment plan is based on achieving healthy skin, first.
Through her continuous hands-on training with Dr. Obagi, as well as other renowned plastic surgeons, dermatologists, dentists, nurse practitioners, and nurse injectors, she has created a results-driven practice.
Kimberly Mitchell is a certified Medical Aesthetician specializing in lasers, and holds additional certifications as a Phlebotomist, IV specialist and ZO Skin Health Specialist. Kimberly’s professional path into skincare began when she and her daughters created a holistic line of products called Silvanus. She launched this skincare line and similar products at her retail store, Beau Etre, in West Chester, Pennsylvania. It would not be long before she discovered a gap between her holistic line and the need for medical intervention involving health and the skincare approach. She returned to school to obtain her Aesthetician License from Jean Madeline where she graduated with honors.
Kimberly’s philosophy is that the face represents our identity to the outside world, to our friends, to our family, and most importantly to ourselves. Her primary goal is to preserve the elements of the face that gives the patient his or her own unique beauty, and to offer highly effective solutions for a patient's skin concerns. Kimberly takes a personal approach with each patient to deliver customized treatments, advice, and results.
