Marcia Fosnaugh Avis’s interest in skincare was sparked as she worked alongside her father, dermatologist Robert Fosnaugh, to develop topical treatments for various skin conditions in his lab. At first available only to Dr. Fosnaugh’s patients, the serums proved so popular that Marcia started marketing them to other clinics, founding Clinitone Skin Care in 1993. Today, Marcia’s Clinage Skin Rejuvenation Systems line is sold throughout the U.S., and Marcia herself is cited as an expert source for beauty advice in magazines such as Styleline.
At Clinage’s spa-like Southfield headquarters, aestheticians deliver facials with deeply penetrating products that can improve skin tone. Take-home Clinage Groupon Peel Kits exfoliate skin without the need to leave the house, reviving cheeks in time for beauty pageants judged via Skype.
