Joie Tavernise founded JTAV Clinical Skincare with a simple belief: No two faces are exactly alike; therefore no two treatments are exactly alike.  Although she is trained in the most advanced aesthetic treatments and procedures, this basic principle has guided her to create a signature experience for every client—one that unites modern technologies with traditional approaches, and incorporates a whole body/whole life perspective. Joie has an eye for what makes every client agelessly beautiful, and her bespoke treatments cater to each client’s unique needs.

Joie is a firm believer that whether you’re a man or woman, caring for skin is not one size fits all. A technique or routine that works for one person may not work well for another’s skin.  Joie’s customized, sometimes “less-is-more” approach begins with an intimate analysis of skin composition, lifestyle and treatment goals. Joie and her team then develop a treatment plan centered on both leading edge non-invasive procedures and time-honored techniques that often get overlooked in today’s future-obsessed climate. Balance and a respect for the traditions of skin care are essential to Joie’s approach.

Joie’s philosophy is that no matter your age or gender, clean skin is the foundation of beautiful skin. That’s why all her services begin with an extraction. While it may be time consuming, an extraction is a best practice that makes everything else that comes after more effective—from in-clinic treatments to at-home skincare products.

With a service menu that offers everything from Pore Cleansing to Ultherapy and more, it’s clear that the JTAV experience is about lasting results that go further than what you see in the mirror. Joie truly believes that beauty is beyond skin deep.

“When I was starting out, I apprenticed with one of the very first practitioners in the field of aesthetics, and I learned something that’s still true in my work today: it’s not just about making you look great when you leave, it’s about building a relationship that will give you young skin forever.”

Joie is a member of the Society of Plastic Surgery Skincare Specialists; National Coalition of Estheticians, Manufacturers/Distributors & Associations; and Society for Medical & Clinical Hair Removal and has been a practicing esthetician for fifteen years.

“It’s not just about making you look great, it’s about building a relationship that will give you young skin forever.”

Rachele is very happy to be a part of the JTAV family.  Joining the team in the summer of 2016, she has quickly adapted her skills and passions to match the practice’s balance of excellent thoughtful care combined with the latest and greatest advanced technologies in the skin care industry. Rachele has been practicing medical esthetics for a decade, specializing in facial rejuvenation. Creating and streamlining home care protocols and customized treatments. Rachele believes this is the foundation and pathway to realistically and optimally exceed client goals. Her belief system, which sets her apart, is that ‘anti-aging’ is both outdated as a concept and not possible – instead she promotes the realistic concept of ‘maturing gracefully.’ Throughout her journey as a compassionate skin care practitioner she has discovered that balance is the key to amazing happy skin and a healthy happy life.

“Essential components of beauty are grace, maturity, self care, professional care, soul, health, love and community – bringing all these together creates beauty that inspires. ”
