Aurora Aura is in the remodeling business. They don't renovate homes, though; rather, they work on revamping skin from the bottom up. Firm believers in the restorative powers of advanced skincare regimens, the estheticians unearth fresher, younger looking skin with carefully tailored facials, chemical peels, and super smoothing facials designed to resurface and restructure the skin. Using top-of-the-line vegan skincare products, they aim to stimulate collagen and elastin production, deliver vitamins and antioxidants, supercharge the lymphatic system, and reverse cell damage. To put the finishing touches on revitalized looks, they also offer lash and brow tinting and full-body waxing.
At Colorado Waxing, licensed aesthetician Lorelee provides clients with face- and body-waxing services, facials, and microdermabrasion treatments using nontoxic Milagro Skin Health products. She corrals her 14 years of experience to rev up anti-aging and acne-fighting facials or administer peels packed with glycolic, salicylic, and fruit acid to brighten skin. To tighten and tone faces without surgery, her microcurrent facial treatments work to stimulate drooping facial muscles, giving the appearance of lifted features without having to tie helium balloons to eyelids. But the crown jewel of the operation is waxing, which customers have called "quick and pain free."
Diamond-tipped microdermabrasion treatments, anti-aging facials, and Jessner peels work to obliterate the dead skin cells that hold their brighter descendants hostage. Resulting faces look as fresh as a two-day-old kitten and can be further pampered with expert eyebrow threading and waxing services.
A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas—its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries—Planet Beach Contempo Spa is a futuristic relaxation station where state-of-the-art machines administer all the spa and tanning services. These friendly automatons sometimes replace familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate or a rear-end collision with a salt truck. Other machines whiten teeth, spray tan skin, and massage muscles.
Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning that members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. As members spend more time at the spa, they get to know the helpful assistants who are always on hand to demonstrate how to use the equipment without activating its ability to cry.
Tan on the Boulevard's staff cultivates healthy glows with Smart Tan training and certification, using advanced UV-tanning beds and custom airbrush-tanning techniques. Each of the three tanning emporiums are equipped with high-speed UV-tanning equipment that releases a reduced amount of UVB rays to lessen the risk of burning and produce a golden color similar to an organic egg yolk coated in gold leaf. Customers can achieve visibly gilded results in far less time than with traditional sunbathing, and the salon's collection of beds also contains specialized facial bronzers and cooling systems to maintain comfortable conditions. Five days a week, Tan on the Boulevard also has airbrush-tanning specialists on call to coat skin in tailored sprays of sunless solution that highlight clients’ favorite characteristics and leave no visible streaks.
