Donna Lapetina, owner and head aesthetician at Skin Solutions Medical Spa, has spent the last decade caring for aging skin—including her own. Donna and her team work their age-defying magic under the direction of board-certified dermatologist Dr. Sheila Boyle, whose career includes time as a flight surgeon, a lieutenant commander in the military, and a volunteer speaker on skin cancer. The staff’s specialty services include microdermabrasion, peels, and facials, as well as intensive acne treatments. Dr. Boyle performs all Botox and dermal-filler procedures herself to safely keep crow’s-feet, frown lines, and worry lines at bay. Clients receive their treatments in private, earth-toned rooms that mix the serenity of a spa with the professionalism of a medical office.
Rather than buying leftover potions from local sorcerers, Skin Solutions Medical Spa has developed its own line of products, including cleansers, eye creams, and an exfoliating scrub. The gentle solutions are formulated with ingredients such as green-tea extract, oil of calendula, and cranberry extract.
For 27 years, Colorado Tan's certified indoor-tanning crew has guided pale physiques through the bronzing process with five levels of UV beds and Mystic spray tans. Slip skin suits into a UV-less caramelization chamber with two treatments of spray tans, designed to leave the epidermis glowing with a streak-free tan that doesn't bear the dark outline of the sun's constantly scowling face. Spacious booths mist clients with one of four paraben-free solutions, each blended with aloe-vera, green-tea, and acai ingredients to help hydrate and compliment self-conscious complexions.
Over the course of her career, Venus Eyelash Extensions owner Amanda Salas has revamped lashes of every length, thickness, and texture. She uses her ample know-how to give her clients a look that's bold, yet natural in appearance. Using a semipermanent glue that won't irritate the skin or impede flirtatious winking, she attaches extensions one by one, beautifying clients with either synthetic, mink, or color-enhanced varieties.
The staff at Metta Wellness Center believes that, in order to fully heal their patients, they must heal them as a whole: mind, body, and spirit. The center’s tranquil confines help accomplish this goal while staff perform treatments influenced by a blend of Eastern and Western therapies. During a traditional Thai massage, the therapist combines muscle compression, acupressure, and yoga-like body manipulations to energize patients without switching their vitamins with espresso beans. They also offer tropical hot-stone massages, signature body scrubs and wraps, herbal body wraps, and Thai reflexology, which targets pressure points in the feet to balance the body’s energy.
Colorado Tan’s technicians make sure their clients leave with sun-kissed skin and sparkling smiles. Five levels of tanning beds are equipped with such extras as face and shoulder tanning lamps, and a fan to keep clients cool during darkening sessions. Alternatively, a Mystic Tan booth covers bodies in a UV-free spray tan solution that doesn't leave any streaks or crop circles on the skin. Technicians enhance smiles with the Da Vinci teeth-whitening system, which has a blue light-activated formula that erases stains from wine, tobacco, and coffee.
Sol Day Spa puts a premium on hassle-free relaxation, allowing clients to book appointments online for massage, waxing, aromatherapy, and a whole host of facial services. In private treatment rooms, the spa’s aestheticians can take the time to analyze skin and perform meticulous skincare services to address problems including acne, fine lines, and sensitivity. Deep cleansing with extractions purifies the skin, and add-ons can address clients’ skincare issues. The vitamin C serum heals sensitive or sun-damaged skin, and a lightening treatment fades hyperpigmentation and scars from old blemishes or freckle duels.
Specialty massage types relax bodies with hot stones, deep pressure, or gentle kneading designed to relieve the pain and discomfort of expectant mothers.
