History

New Location, New Name...

Welcome to Dolce Vita Aesthetic Medicine, DVAM. Being of Italian decent, I love the language and love the meaning of Dolce Vita, the Sweet Life. What better name to describe how grateful I am for all of my blessings...for my family, my husband, my children, my team at work, for you and for being able to do what I love. Thank you for being a part of this sweet life with me...thank you for making Dolce Vita a reality.

On March 31, 2010 I left a very busy and successful practice with four wonderful physicians to start solo practice. After much thought and deliberation, I decided to stop practicing with West Coast OB/Gyn. My desire to make a change was to devote more time to my 3 beautiful daughters and husband, a local spine surgeon. Another driving force was the inability to spend adequate time with patients in a busy practice where I saw, at times, more than 40 patients per day, performed surgery before clinic and again during the lunch hour.

I initially concentrated my energy to BellaBOTOX, I.N.K. while my daughters were in school. I am also continuing clinical Gynecology for a select group of patients. I found it hard to stay away from OB/Gyn all together. I am glad to inform you that I am accepting a limited number of patients in order to maintain a personalized and tranquil practice. With BellaBOTOX, I.N.K. and private gynecology practice I am able to find a great balance, therefore becoming a better physician, mother and wife. Though I absolutely love deliveries and the joy it brings me and my patients, I have temporarily stopped delivering. "I am sad about the deliveries I will miss but I am delighted to provide may more options than most Ob/Gyns."

"I have had the privilege of offering my patients multiple cosmetic procedures and skin care regimens for several years, previously, as the Director of the Laser & Cosmetics portion of my prior practice and now through Dolce Vita Aesthetic Medicine, formerly known as BellaBOTOX, I.N.K.. I continue to provide meticulous and professional attention to your aesthetic needs."

Currently, we offer a great variety of medical aesthetic procedures in a clinical setting as well as mobile. I am available for house calls for established patients. Host your own BOTOX party at the venue in the heart of Downtown Rancho Santa Fe Village. Enjoy significant savings for hosting a party!

I provide a medical grade skin care line, all at very reasonable prices. I also provide Latisse which is an amazing prescription treatment used to grow longer, thicker and darker lashes! I personally use these products and see an amazing improvement in my skin and appearance. We would love to help you determine which products are best for you. Feel free to place your order online, via phone, text or email. Have your products delivered to your door-step in no time!

I'm so excited about some of my newest additions to the practice! We've added Cutera ExcelV for laser rejuvenation & Laser Genesis as well as micro-needling with the top of the line Collagen P.I.N. and Magellan PRP. Boy oh boy, talk about CIT, Collagen Induction Therapy....want to see results? Come in and see for yourself. I'm loving the results I've seen on myself!! Can't wait to share this all with you.
Finally, thanks for all of your support in our growth! Thanks for your loyalty. I couldn't do this all without everyone of you believing in me and trusting me to take care of you. I'm blessed to call you my patients. I'm happy to let you know that BellaBOTOX, INK will now be Dolce Vita Aesthetic Medicine in our brand new location. We've built out a new office with you in mind. Hoping you love it!!

Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have. Feel free to schedule an appointment.

I look forward to seeing you and assisting in maintaining your youthful appearance!

What's Behind our Name

My practice was formerly called BellaBOTOX, I.N.K. Though it was such a hard decision about whether to keep the name or to change it, I've decided on the latter because I thought it would be best to be a little more incognito and not have the word BOTOX plastered on my office front. Time to be a little more discreet. I'd love to share with you how I had come up with the name BellaBOTOX, I.N.K. though since it was and will always be so special to me.

The name BellaBotox I.N.K. means beautiful Botox - naturally because of the way it transforms those pesky lines into a smooth, beautiful appearance! Most importantly my eldest daughter's name is Bella!

I.N.K. also has a very significant meaning for me. I for Isabella, N for Natalia & K for Katalina. These are the names of my three beautiful daughters who have inspired me to tailor my practice from Obstetrics & Gynecology to Aesthetics and clinical gynecology.

Thank you for your support in my decision! I can return to medicine as an Obstetrician at any point in the future - but I would never be able to rewind and replace these precious years that I will have with my family.

I look forward to meeting you and your needs!
