This is how Diane describes her passion for aesthetics:

“I love my profession. Working as an aesthetician in a medical spa is extremely rewarding. To be able to transform someone’s skin and see their confidence soar as a result, that’s an incredible feeling. I have built my reputation on trust. I know it’s not an easy decision to put your skin in someone else’s hands and I don’t take that trust for granted. Patients know I recommend only those treatments and products that will give them optimal results for their specific skin concerns. We discuss what changes they would like to see in their skin and then formulate a treatment plan as well as maintenance. The products you use at home are just as important as your in-office treatments, choosing them carefully is essential to reaching your skincare goals. Many times I ask patients to bring in the products they are currently using and I am often surprised when they’ve shown up with a dozen or more or skincare products. I like to keep their skincare routines simple and effective. I am incredibly grateful to my patients for allowing me to guide them in achieving their best skin and would love the opportunity to do the same for you.”
