Janice Pagtakhan, RN
When Janice joined the Essential Aesthetics team eight years ago, she had been practicing as a registered nurse for 16 years. Aesthetic nursing is her genuine passion, and she has worked in a variety of settings, including internal medicine, telemetry, and psychiatry.
Janice has learned a great deal about aesthetics during the last eight years. When it comes to the CoolSculpting procedures, she has substantial training and experience. The unique “ice and fire” body contouring technique she uses has proven to be so successful with patients that she now draws patients from all around Sonoma, Napa, and Contra Costa Counties. It’s worth noting that Janice has an excellent love of aesthetics when it comes to body contouring and sculpting. Furthermore, she is licensed to perform a wide range of laser procedures, including hair removal with the Alexandrite and skin resurfacing with fractional, 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.
