Acne is a mysterious and very frustrating disorder of the skin. There is no cure. There is no magic pill. However, it CAN be controlled. At Studio M Skin Care I offer an affordable acne program with a 95% success rate. This program is designed to have your acne under control in approximately 12 - 16 weeks. This is done without the use of prescription drugs, topical or internal. Your home care routine will consist of products catered specifically to the type of acne you have and your skin type.
My program consists of a 4 prong approach:
Controlling acne requires dedication and commitment to the 4 key elements listed above. I am dedicated to each of my clients and expect the same in return. Clear and healthy skin can be achieved but only through following my program. The basics of my program are based on the research and studies of Dr. James Fulton Jr., MD, PHD., one of the most renowned acne experts in the world. Through his research, and others dedicated to the treatment of acne, the myths and truths about acne came to light. Did you know chocolate and greasy food do NOT cause acne? That getting a tan will not clear your skin, in fact, it can make acne worse? That people of ALL ages get acne? Or that acne is hereditary? Through my program, I help you to understand not only the root cause of your acne but also the things that trigger your ongoing acne breakouts. With this knowledge, the use of proper products, bi-weekly treatments, and making a few changes to diet and lifestyle, healthy skin can be achieved. I look forward to guiding you on your journey to clear skin!
The first step in getting clear is to schedule an Acne Consultation or an Acne Consultation with an Acne Treatment. **New clients please fill out Consultation Form prior to appointment. Link at top of page.
During your consultation, you will learn what acne is, what kind of acne you have, what can trigger your acne and the steps you must take to have clear skin. I will analyze your skin and test products for skin sensitivity to determine what products are best suited for you
In this appointment, I will go over all that the Clear Skin Acne Program consists of. I will assess your skin type and recommend your home care products and routine.
Acne Treatment consists of deep pore cleansing, enzyme or light peel exfoliation, extractions, high frequency, LED spot treatment, and SPF
(Returning clients only, a consultation is required before booking this appointment.)
Treatments are performed every two weeks until your skin clears. Typically that takes anywhere from 8-12 weeks. Each acne treatment has a specific focus for what the skin needs at the time of treatment.
**Package of 8 Bi-monthly treatments is available for $600
(savings of $40)
Once your skin is clear I recommend coming in for maintenance treatments once a month. At these appointments, I continue to assess your skin and make changes in your home care if needed.
This treatment is great for inflamed acne on the back or for congested skin in need of extractions.
Treatment includes a deep cleanse, mask, exfoliation, extractions if needed, and moisturizer.

LED Light Therapy has been proven to be an extremely beneficial tool for post-acne treatments or as a stand-alone treatment by killing the P. acnes bacteria and reducing inflammation. It also is effective by reducing acne lesions, reducing redness, and lightening post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.

I grew up in the Northwest but I feel as though I've always belonged in North Idaho. My family and I moved to Coeur d'Alene in May of 2020 and we feel like we have finally arrived home. I am so excited to be opening my skin care studio in downtown Coeur d'Alene!
I worked for a while in the corporate world in Seattle but I soon realized that it wasn't the world for me. I had an opportunity to go to school to be an Esthetician so I jumped at the chance to work in an industry that I was passionate about. I graduated from Greenwood Academy for Esthetics in 2004 and quickly learned what it was like to love my work. I had found a way to combine my love of connecting with people, helping people, beauty products, and skincare!
I have been an Esthetician for 16 years and have had experience in both Spa/MediSpa settings and also in a Dermatology clinic. Through that experience, I was able to broaden my skill set and I am certified in Chemical peels, IPL, YAG Laser Genesis, Cutera Titan, and Microdermabrasion. While it was amazing to be able to do all of those different modalities, I knew it was time to branch out on my own and five years ago I became a proud small business owner. I also decided to focus primarily on the treatment of acne. Since then I have done many hours of continuing education and research to grow my knowledge of this specific skin issue.
It is so rewarding to be able to connect with my clients while guiding them to healthy and clear skin!
