Over the past 7 years, Janice has expanded her knowledge in aesthetics vastly. She has been trained extensively in the CoolSculpting applications, consultations, and treatments. Her unique “ice and fire” body contouring technique has had much success in patient outcomes that people from all over Sonoma, Contra Costa, and Alameda County come to see her. Janice believes that when it comes to body contouring and sculpting, there is a true art, and she surely has the eye for it. She also holds certifications in numerous laser applications including laser hair removal, skin resurfacing, IPL, microneedling, and skin tightening.
Janice treats every patient as an individual and creates customized treatment plans, taking pride in giving them noticeable results. She does so by staying up to date on the latest procedure techniques and attending various body contouring and laser seminars.
When Janice isn’t working, she enjoys spending time with her husband and three children, traveling, reading, biking, skating, and playing volleyball.
