Melissa has over 20 years of clinical skincare and spa treatment experience. During this time, her hands-on client work included dedicated training for the treatment of specific skin conditions, such as hyperpigmentation, rosacea, premature aging and post-surgical care. In 2007, Melissa opened her namesake skincare studio. Melissa’s mission is to help clients maintain their best healthy skin over time, catering to unique needs, goals, and skin types.


Melissa will analyze your skin, ask probing questions about your at-home regimen, and customize a treatment plan that addresses your unique profile. Many of Melissa's clients view her as much more than an esthetician and more commonly refer to her as a skincare therapist, coach or primary care doctor. In 2009, DailyCandy San Francisco coined Melissa Cope as the “skin fairy godmother.” Melissa’s constant devotion to skincare research and the latest treatment innovations ensures that her clients receive the benefits of the most advanced techniques. Her oxygen infusions, detoxifying lymphatic drainage technique, and no-mark-left-behind extraction method are just a few examples of her commitment to staying at the forefront of skincare innovation and treatment excellence.


Melissa curated CopeAesthetic, a product line prioritizing the highest quality ingredients and eliminating the unhealthy ones—such as preservatives and parabens. The foundation of Melissa’s line revolves around the MC mantra: CLEANSE, TONE, TREAT, REPEAT. CopeAesthetic products bolster your skin's natural ability to strike a balanced PH which protects skin from harmful bacteria and promotes healthy, glowing skin.
