Viviana Franco Cardozo
With more than 25 years of experience as a bacteriologist, graduated from Javeriana University of Colombia, Viviana Franco managed to fulfill one of her big dreams when she arrived in the United States 16 years ago: continuing to exercise her professional career which she is deeply passionate about.
After studying all the options, Viviana was able to open her first microbiology center with great enthusiasm, providing the Latino community with an excellent platform with top quality services. For 2 years, Viviana was able to perfect her use of Platelet Rich Plasma.
As an independent business woman, led her to rethink many things, including what to do with all the passion she felt for her career, thus adding her great professional experience, and as in any case of success, this challenge became the great opportunity she was waiting to discover and develop the maximum other talents that she didn't even know existed, this time in the part of aesthetic medicine. "Get the juice of the blood," a great friend had told her in the middle of a jocular tone and it was. Viviana started with aesthetic medicine.
"The first thing I started doing was the Platelet-rich plasma, I obviously knew all about blood management and being able to apply it for facial rejuvenation was simply fascinating,"
It was in this way that VV Med Esthetics was born, a medical spa specialized in skin care and body shaping.
