Owner & Medical Esthetician

Joy Stewart

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! (Be sure to always drink plain water after to protect your enamel.)

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.

Medical Esthetician

Andrea Carcueva

With a BSc in Nursing, Andrea first worked as a nurse in the Philippines and as a healthcare worker in Japan before coming to Canada, looking for adventure and a change in career. Always curious, she immersed herself in the world of skin health and esthetics, building upon her medical background. Within three years of arriving, she was invited to join Touch of Joy, where she’s since been a steady and invaluable presence to the team.

Esthetician & PMU Artist

Raquel Konrad

As Joy Stewart's daughter, Raquel grew up in the world of beauty and wellness. With experience in art and design, she has an intuitive eye for precision and details. Combined with her passion for skincare, permanent makeup is a natural fit for her talents. Her warm, affable personality instantly puts clients at ease, but it’s her expertise that keeps her in constant demand.

She is also the owner of Bukobaba Essentials, a family business with the mission to provide healthy premium coconut food and wellness products to markets in Canada by supporting and working directly with local organic coconut farmers in the Philippines.
