The Skoah Story

Skoah began in 2001 in Vancouver's Yaletown district as a full-service spa with a fresh attitude and atmosphere: the decor was minimal and gender-neutral, and the experience approachable and unintimidating.

Skoah's first tag line was ‘no whale music, no bubbling cherubs, no pretentious attitude.’ Skoah quickly built a reputation as the best place to get a facial. It’s original estheticians loved the opportunity to connect and build long term relationships with facial guests. After experiencing single service nail bars in Los Angeles, New York, Hong Kong and London, skoah’s founders realized there was an opportunity to create a single service ‘facials only’ concept.

In 2003, the ‘facials only’ facial shop was born. That same year skoah hired a chemist and skoah launched its skin care product line with 5 proprietary products. The unique combination of personalized facial treatments , expert skin care trainers (facialists) and simply powerful skin care products created a distinctive customer skin care experience dubbed personal training for your skin.

Our customers often describe skoah as creating: “a completely new experience in my life”. Skoah has become a place for you to experience the delicate hands of an expert skin care trainer, to learn about your skin and how to take care of it.
