Registered nurse Francine Oca fondly remembers tagging along to work with her aunt, a professional makeup artist. She'd watch in awe as brushes whisked across faces, brightening eyes and highlighting smiles. Though these tune-ups were small, they made a world of difference to women's perceptions of themselves.
Today, Francine helps women cultivate beauty and confidence as an aesthetic nurse at Live Gorgeous OC—a skincare clinic that specializes in noninvasive enhancements such as laser treatments, dermal fillers, and wrinkle-smoothing injections. Along with Dr. Corazon Iniguez Oca, a physician who has taught at UC Irvine, she performs services that shrink forehead lines, minimize unwanted hair, and correct pigmentation problems for all skin types and colors.
To promote safety and peace of mind, the clinic offers FDA-approved treatments whenever possible. Though the treatments often summon a girlish glow, Francine doesn't believe in making all faces look as young as an egg in a baby bonnet. Instead of performing unnecessary treatments, she will guide clients toward products and habits that make skin look naturally fresh and vibrant.
