Kara Crane, NP-C

“As a teenager, I had severe acne and I know the insecurity that can come along with that. So, I love being able to help people address skin issues. I like that I can make a difference in people’s lives.”

“As a teenager, I had severe acne and I know the insecurity that can come along with that. So, I love being able to help people address skin issues. I like that I can make a difference in people’s lives.”

During high school Kara often had a chance to accompany her mother who is also a nurse and watch some interesting surgeries at St. Bernadine’s Hospital in San Bernardino. “It was fascinating and that is what sparked my interest in nursing,” comments Kara who states nursing was definitely her calling in life. Kara joined the staff of The Laser Center at Contour Dermatology as a Nurse Practitioner in September 2008.

“Medical dermatology is my focus at Contour, but I also am certified to work with lasers, perform Botox® injections and facial fillers and I assist Dr. Jochen with hair transplant surgeries. Since joining Contour, she’s tried all the products, had some of the fillers, Botox®, peels and undergone a few laser treatments, so she knows the benefits first hand and what to tell patients they can expect with various procedures and products. “I want to provide a good service to patients and see them leave with a great experience and great results,” comments Kara.

“I am thrilled to be part of the team at Contour. I love the energy at the office and the people. Dr. Jochen has been an amazing mentor and teacher to me and I look forward to utilizing that knowledge to make a great contribution here.” A native of Redlands, Kara still lives in that community with her husband, Stephen, and their two boys. Kara spends most of her leisure time with her kids, but when she has the opportunity, this self-described “outdoorsy girl” loves mountain biking and running.
