Winner of the Boulder County Gold People's Choice award for best skincare facility in 2010, Laser & Cosmetic Associates of Boulder's team of surgeons and licensed aestheticians beautify and revitalize face skin with advanced, clinical-grade facial treatments. The Vitalize peel is a 20-minute procedure designed to improve your flesh-emoticon’s skin texture and tone with a gentle rain of safe acids. The Vitalize peel effectively erases fine lines, acne scarring, sun damage, and rocks that have sprouted out of the skin as a result of cosmic ray exposure. Faces are slightly sensitive after the procedure and should be protected with sunscreen, but there is virtually no recovery time and patients can return to their office or Senate hearing immediately.
The soothing orange walls of Guru Waxing and Nail Spa surround guests as they sip on authentic indian chai tea, lounge in leather armchairs, and bask in the entertaining warmth of a flat-screen television. Meanwhile, owner Kalpana Gurung tends to visitors’ needs while drawing on her 16 years of beauty-industry experience and ability to tell the difference between body hair and stuck-on cotton candy. Kalpana and her staff polish hands and feet, apply purifying masks to faces, wax unwanted fuzz, and tint lashes and brows.
At Rinnova, Dr. Todd Becker and medical aestheticians turn to modern medical aesthetic methods when rejuvenating faces and beautifying bodies. Laser skin treatments work to resurface areas covered in fine lines, while CoolSculpting sessions use a temperature technology dubbed "cryolipolysis" to contour the body without surgery.
Megan McCanna brings her thousands of hours of clinical experience to bear in the offices of Inner Path Acupuncture, soothing patients with traditional Chinese medicine. During first visits to the office, Megan collects an initial intake of each patient’s individual needs, identifying mental and bodily disharmonies such as digestive problems, psycho-emotional issues, and pain. A one-hour treatment session follows, during which 1–16 sterilized, hair-thin needles are inserted into key points on the body, restoring energy pathways headed to the body’s vital nervous, circulatory, and stereo systems. Megan specializes in women’s health and fertility and is an experienced herbalist, customizing blends according to each patient’s needs. Patients can upgrade their sessions to 90 minutes for an additional $25 per treatment.
