What We’re About
Add the best laser technology, aesthetic procedures, prescription strength skincare, years of experience and a twist of fun…….that’s what we’re about!
There’s not always an easy answer or a “quick fix” for aging or problematic skin. We believe that success comes from educating our clients on how the skin works as well as teaching them how our treatments and products can correct the bad habits or problems our skin has developed over time. Our skin is the largest organ of the human body, and we have to take care of it by exercising it, nourishing it, and protecting it. That is the key to achieving healthy youthful beautiful skin!
Meet Our Team
Amy Hannahs is a Licensed Master Esthetician in the state of Washington. She has had over 11 years of experience in the medical esthetics field, using Cutera lasers since day one. Graduating from the University of Washington in 2004 with a specialty degree in Metal Sculpture, Amy loves to use her very detailed artistic eye to help her clients look and feel their best. Laser has become her passion over the last decade as she’s seen truly amazing transformations with this brilliant technology. She feels that it is very important to educate her clients beyond the fundamentals of skincare, to help them understand how the skin works and what we need to do to keep it healthy and young. Amy has performed thousands of treatments and served many clients in the southwest Washington area at her former business, where she owned and operated a successful laser medspa for nearly 10 years. After having her 2nd child a year ago, Amy decided it was time to be closer to home and her family here in the Salmon Creek and Felida areas of Vancouver.
Dr. Marty Coale:
Marty Coale, MD, our medical director/co-owner became passionate about skin health after meeting Amy for hair removal about 10 years ago. Amy took one look at the sun damage all over Marty’s face (especially pigmented spots) and started her on a medical grade skin care program by Dr. Obagi. Amy had to do some encouragement along the way, sometimes helping Marty with some “tricks” to help her get through some mild discomfort…. but Amy is really good at that! Amy soon talked to Marty about all the benefits of laser skin rejuvenation (in that very subtle encouraging way) and Marty started having regular laser treatments (laser Genesis and 3D rejuvenation soon followed). Marty has kept up with her maintenance skin care (and got a little better about keeping covered by sunscreen!) and the feedback she has gotten over the years made all the effort well worth it! The seed was planted over the years to start a business in Vancouver with Amy and to do her own part in the rejuvenation process. Treating the small flaws that bother individuals and affect one’s self esteem is the most rewarding to Marty.
Dr. Coale, an MD licensed in WA and OR, took the opportunity 4 years ago to retire from Diagnostic Imaging where her special interests were women’s imaging (ultrasound imaging and procedures, mammography) and emergency imaging (US, CT, MRI, X-Rays). She practiced after medical school and residency for 15 years and then spent her two daughters’ high school years at home orchestrating a very busy household. Dr. Coale’s two daughters, Ellie and Olivia, are now in college and she is free to pursue a new fun and energizing business venture. Skin and Tonics Laser Center was born and the fun adventure has begun! You can imagine that Dr. Coale has been doing hours and hours of training and research to bring the current ideas and old standard uses of Botox Cosmetic muscle relaxation and facial fillers to the practice here in Vancouver.
