Joanne Shiffman, RN, BSN is a licensed registered nurse of 28 years with advanced training in medical aesthetics, including the use of neuromodulators and dermal fillers to artfully erase lines and enhance facial contours. She is also highly experienced in the use of non-ablative lasers and light-based therapies used in the correction of sun damaged skin and in the treatment of acne.

Her clinical nursing experience includes a background in oncology, emergency room, post anesthesia recovery and plastic surgery.
Opening a medical skincare office with a boutique-like setting and an unhurried approach to treatments was Joanne's vision. "Too often skin clinics become assembly lines for injectibles and laser-based procedures." At Face First Laser Clinic we begin with a complimentary one hour consultation to discuss the needs and concerns of the patient and an individualized plan is created. From experience, Joanne knows there is always more than one way to receive fabulous results; some approaches may take longer but can be just as effective over time!
Joanne is dedicated to quality skin care and outstanding results. She believes that good skincare doesn't have to be difficult or expensive. "We can design a simple daily regime for everyone’s lifestyle."
