 In the skincare industry for over 35 years,
Specializing in the Treatment of Melasma for over 20 Years


By appointment only 


   Over the 35 years Joy-Marie has been in the cosmetics industry, studying in the United States, France and Italy, she has been focusing on using plant extracts for health and beauty.  Over time she has observed that people become symptomatic on the skin when exposed to pollution, poor diet, long term use of prescription drugs and hormone therapy.  After nearly 2 years back at college, majoring in Environmental Health and Occupational Safety, she had studied the local watershed and how we humans unwittingly impact it.  Now she is putting her documentation to great use as she performs an in-depth Safe Drinking Water Study.  In her spa practice, her clients learn about how our foods have been compromised by chemicals that industry adds to agriculture for bigger or more uniform size produce,  just for packaging and shipping concerns - not flavor or nutrition, color and preservation - to withstand weeks of shipping) and the effects this has on our health and skin.   Recently, she gave  presentations on the controversy of Nano-Technology In Cosmetics; how common household cleaning agents harm our skin and lungs and how local SuperFund sites continue to sicken local residents without any health alerts from the government.   For years, she has be talking to clients, government officials and scientists about how Pharmaceutical and Personal Care Products ingredients are harming our health and the ecosystems and her suspicions were confirmed by EPA reports publicized in 2009 and 2010.  You can help the environment around your home by reading up on PPCP's, Chemicals of Concern, Phthalates and how your local waste water treatment facility instructs residents to handle waste!  Do not flush any medicines, cosmetics or supplements down the toilet or drain!  Read more at Oregon Environmental Council online.  Also, get a copy of Slow Death By Rubber Duck.  It'll change the way you shop for common goods and what you put on your body.

Melasma Reduction Program

 Melasma (mask of pregnancy)

 Holistic, Natural Treatment of Hormonal Hyper-Pigmentation Triggered by Sun, Chemicals, Heat and Stress

     You will see the benefits you seek from a series of professional visits with esthetician Joy-Marie.  The program includes melanin - suppressing, exfoliating, blocking and deflecting agents applied to the affected areas of your complexion.  She will include  certified organic home care products suited to your condition, skin type and any health issues.  With a wide range of professional solutions to work with, she can find the right program and offer you sound advice  to achieve lasting results.   

Initial visit is about 2 hours and costs $195.This begins with an in-depth evaluation, imaging device to show you what is going on below the surface and discussion about Melasma.  The facial portion of your first visit includes certified organic products that chemically signal your epidermis with new messages about how it responds to heat, sun and fluorescent lighting.  Then Joy-Marie will use an exfoliate, which  may involve either organic skin peeling agents, Microdermabrsion or Ultra Sound.  One or more  specialty masks are used, depending on the  degree of pigmentation, other skin problems and any health issues.  Each visit is finished with a melanin suppressing serum and sunscreen.  These products she uses have been tested over the years for non-reactive results because Melasma creates a very sensitive complexion, making it so difficult to treat successfully with common skin care products. Every facial will include hydration, calming ingredients, healing antioxidants and protective treatments to send you back out into the environment.  Depending on her evaluation, your first session also includes 3 home care products to take and use daily to continue the benefits.  A retail value of over $75 as a gift to start you on your way to clear skin.

   Follow up sessions will cost between $90 and $200, depending on areas she will work on for you and  the technology or products she will use.

   Each client's program is designed for best results in a timely manner.  Know that we have not found a quick fix for this mysterious and complicated skin condition, so come with your patience!  Home-care products will be selected depending on the aesthetician's evaluation and results of patch-testing ingredients for response and absorbency.

The Ultra Sonic Skin Rejuvenation

    The ultimate way to get your skin really clean without chemicals or abrasive exfoliations!  In addition our Ultra Sonic Facial machine procedure will lighten age spots and acne scars when its used in a program of skin care.  One treatment is very beneficial but we make no careless claims so to immediate removal of skin problems!  Always avoid any business or product that does.  If we ever find a miracle product like that you can bet we'll feature it here!   Joy-Marie's ultrasound procedure is painless and relaxing.   Some complexions are just too sensitive or reactive to use chemical peels, Microdermabrasion or extractions so Ultra Sonic is for you if this describes your skin!   No crystals, no scrubbing, no steaming...  she uses organic solutions and sound waves.  With a micro low vibration of 20,000 times per seconds(1 MHz) , the ultrasonic scrubbing stage stimulate the tissues and improves the permeability of cell membranes. Then, after deep cleaning the skin, we change the modulation to 1 million times per second to improve the efficiency of product absorption and activity for the anti-aging, toning or healing aspect of your treatment.  During the treatment, the generation of frictional heat is helpful to accelerate blood circulation, muscle relaxation and decompose the sebum and any toxins stored away in the layers of skin. Equipped with three treatment heads for easy access of targeted area, this exquisite facial treatment results in...
• Firmer skin, reduction in facial lines, wrinkles and crows feet
• Reduces puffiness and discoloration around the eyes
• Stimulates blood and lymph circulation
• Regeneration of skin cells which improves healing, tone and color
• Reduction of  age spots, freckles and acne marks

• Diminishes  expression and stress lines with each visit
