Preserving beauty should be
healthy and natural.

Touch of Joy is all about skin health. It’s not sexy, it’s not glamorous. But you’ll be amazed at the results – because healthy skin is beautiful skin.

Joy and her team promote a holistic approach that reflects the best practices internationally. They feature techniques and knowledge gained from a variety of cultures and countries. What you’ll find at Touch of Joy is a uniquely curated collection of treatments that aren’t just the best in Vancouver or Canada, but around the world. This includes LPG Endermologie® from France, the best Brazilian waxing north of the equator, and brightening methods (to treat hyperpigmentation & melasma) from Asia that can offer a viable alternative to laser.

When you walk into Touch of Joy, you’re entering a world of expert knowledge, pre-eminent care, gracious generosity and possibly life-changing counseling. Your skin analysis goes far beyond the superficial – your entire, cumulative lifestyle is taken into consideration when determining your best course of treatment(s). Everything from ethnicity, age, travel patterns, diet, climate/season, allergies, medications, etc. all factor into your skin health.

And these models on our website? Those are all real-life, bare-skin, untouched-up Touch of Joy clients!


The two things you need to know about Joy are that she’s passionate about skin health and she cares deeply for all her clients. Even before she opened Touch of Joy, her goal was always to help people achieve the very best skin possible.

Joy does this not only by providing state-of-the-art services to treat a variety of skincare concerns (from acne to facial firming to hyperpigmentation) but also by generously sharing her knowledge about skin health.

Her best tip for everyone? Drink plenty of water with lemon. It’s how she starts her morning everyday!

And while Joy won’t treat and tell, she’s worked with dozens of TV and film producers and celebrities (and helped said celebrities outwit waiting paparazzi ). She’s the reason why your favourite stars look so good on the big screen and in high def. And she can do the same for you!

Joy brings to her clinic an unsurpassed level of passion, dedication and international level of skincare excellence. Having traveled the world, she’s adopted the best esthetic practices from a variety of countries and cultures. Selective in what she pursues and offers to clients, she’s received professional training in France, Japan, the US and Canada, and continues to look for educational opportunities so she can provide her clients with unparalleled services in Vancouver.

Joy’s certifications include LPG Endermologie® (LPG Canada), Lymphatic Therapy (Institute of Lymphatic Therapy of North America), Cosmotology (Aveda Institute) and is an active member of the Beauty Council of Western Canada.
