Samantha Pang, FNP-C, found a passion for skincare at an early age. After struggling with acne in high school, Sam found a medical spa that helped her transform her skin – and she knew she wanted to help others do the same.
“Once I became a nurse, I knew that I wanted to work in the field of aesthetic dermatology to help others feel confident in their skin,” says Sam. “I also grew up playing the piano, violin and painting. So naturally I love the arts, and that’s why I gravitated towards the artistic side of medicine.”
After graduating from the Seattle University’s School of Nursing, Sam received her Family Nurse Practitioner degree at Cal State Long Beach. She went on to work in a dermatologist’s office, where she assisted with MOHs surgery and treating chronic dermatologic diseases. One year later, Sam moved back to LA to pursue a full time career as an Aesthetic Nurse Practitioner.
Today, she continues her goal of helping patients feel their most confident through medical aesthetics, her favorite treatment being Botox (if she had to choose). “If there is one treatment that I can’t live without, it’s BOTOX!” says Sam. “I’ve been a BOTOX consumer since I was 23, and it has kept my forehead looking smooth. I’m living proof that preventative Botox works!”
She also reminds patients that while it’s easy to improve your skin with treatments like lights and lasers, maintaining your results requires a commitment to quality skincare products. The right medical-grade skincare products will protect your skin from environmental stressors, provide hydration, and promote collagen stimulation.
