WHO WE ARE

Turning back the hands of time.

Pelage Medical Spa was formed around the idea that corrective treatments need to be performed in a warm and inviting space in order to be truly effective. Why? Because when you feel comfortable sharing your concerns, we can collaborate to find the right solution.

We take the time to get to know you — and help you get to know your skin — so that you can be in the driver’s seat of your skin health and aging process.

Skin Science for Every Body

Founded by JoAnne Gerri after a 20-year career in nursing, Pelage Medi Spa has been a cornerstone of the Issaquah business community since 1999.

Pelage Medi-Spa offers clients of any age or gender an array of innovative and customized skin care programs designed specifically for each client’s skin and hair. Our highly trained professionals and Master Estheticians are lifelong learners dedicated to remaining at the cutting edge of medical spa treatments.

In recent years, as health-conscious individuals have increasingly turned to medical spas to turn back the hands of time, the core clientele at Pelage has expanded to include men and women of all ages, skin tones, and hair types. We take our role as educators on skin science seriously and provide every client an opportunity to learn about treatments designed to address different needs. Once our clients are educated about their skin and how it works, they are better equipped to make the best decisions about their future skin treatments.

It’s about science, not buzz words.

Meet JoAnne

JoAnne Gerri, Pelage Medical Spa’s founder and clinical director, has an extensive medical background in internal medicine, infectious disease, oncology, and dermatology.

She became a laser specialist in 1996 and was instrumental in developing the first laser hair removal clinic in the Northwest. She is also an artist. Passionate about symmetry in the human body, she is certified in micropigmentation (permanent makeup) and has extensive training in laser.

“I started this business because I believe in the power of science to help people look and feel their best at a cellular level. There is a science behind skin that I love helping people understand. Getting to know your skin is the best thing you can do for it—and that’s what I help my clients with every day.”

JoAnne started Pelage Medi-Spa as a response to the multi-billion-dollar beauty industry targeting women with myths and misinformation. As Clinical Director of Pelage Medi-Spa, she uses her experiences and observations — in conjunction with her medical background and her passion for informed skin care — to educate people about appropriate skin care and treatments. Still a nurse at her core, she wants every consumer to have access to accurate information in order to make the best choices available to them. JoAnne and Pelage Medi-Spa look forward to earning your trust and becoming your go-to skin science resource.
