Diane Frances Sanchez, LPN


Diane Frances has over 30 years in nursing, ranging from hospital and critical care to private practice pediatrics, dermatology, and plastic surgery. Her patients benefit from her ongoing and intensive training in aesthetic dermal arts and sciences. She earned her certification in therapeutic massage in 1981, while completing her nursing degree in 1983. Diane Frances’ massage background equipped her with the requisite soothing skills that all best-trained aesthetic injection nurses and physicians must cultivate.

Her experience with medical patients, especially fragile children, fortified her profound empathy and her focus on developing pain control techniques while managing patient treatment options and outcomes.
