What to know before your first appointment.


In 2007, after successfully opening two aesthetic practices for other practitioners, Joanne, along with her supportive physician husband, decided to open Aesthetics & Genetics by the Bay in beautiful Cannery Row.  They chose to provide quality aesthetics’ services as well as genetic counseling for individuals with a strong family history of an inherited cancer syndrome.  The company has continued to evolve over 14 years to “Face First Laser Clinic” and most recently as “Cannery Row Medical Aesthetics”.
