About Skinology

The face behind Skinology Clinic is Anne A. Chen.  She suffered from acne throughout her youth, trying over-the-counter topical treatments and antibiotics that didn't work.  She continued to pursue solutions with dermatologists, including Accutane which required regular blood tests, and professional strength acid peels that burned her skin.  Still troubled by problem skin, she tried more over the counter products, such as ProActivTM, and learned that one product doesn't solve everyone's acne problems.  Finally, in the 1996, she found a solution that worked for her!  In addition to using our signature Enzyme Performing Anti-Acne Facial combined with topical products, she also eliminated dairy products.  Her skin never looked better.

As she entered her mid-40's, for the first time, she had to use moisturizers to her routine and combat the increasing wrinkles and aging skin.  After attending the Portland Beauty School and the International Beauty Show and International Esthetics, Cosmetics and Spa Conference in Las Vegas annually, she she stays knowledgeable about the latest and greatest techniques, ingredients and services and her skin never looked more clear, youthful, and dewy.  In addition, she has been personally trained in brow shaping by Damone Roberts, Eyebrow King to the Stars, including Beyonce.  He has shops in Beverly Hills and New York City, is a beauty advisor for Oprah's O Magazine, and was on TLC's "10 Years Younger" all three seasons.  She's excited to bring these wonderful results to you and your best face!

Anne is more than your typical licensed esthetician.  She is a member of the Professional Beauty Association and the Associated Skin Care Professionals.  She earned a B.S. Business Administration from UCBerkeley, an MBA from UCLA and a CPA.  She spent 10 years with Sony Pictures Entertainment and Sony Computer Entertainment, working with the PlayStationTM Computer Entertainment System, and was Senior VP Marketing and New Business for OMSI.  She is a board member for the Angel Island Immigration Station Foundation, currently serves as Secretary for Oswego Friends of Doernbecher and has been involved with non-profit fundraising for Doernbecher Children’s Hospital Foundation's annual auction, golf tournament since 2004.

She attended Beau Monde Academy and her dedication to learning earned her Student of the Month and Perfect Attendance Awards.  Shawna Esparza joined Pharmaca Integrative Pharmacy as an esthetician after passing the Oregon State Board of Cosmetology examination.  She is passionate about being the best in her profession and is dedicated to continuing her education having taken additional courses in massage techniques, make-up application, skin analysis and nutrition.

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us most. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and famous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that people won't feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in all of us. And when we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” ~~Used by Nelson Mandela in his 1994 inaugural speech
