A spotlight floods the stage. Within its revealing beam, a ballerina may begin a pirouette, or a competitive bodybuilder may set his muscles into a ready pose. These performers are Fyll Callan’s target clientele. She is the licensed aesthetician behind Smooth Performance, a spa that caters to the needs of professional dancers, athletes, and bodybuilders. As its name suggests, her spa aims to keep bodies smooth with a menu that includes a range of hair-removal services—from all-natural sugaring to high-tech lasers—and skincare treatments using paraben-free Sanitas products. Among her services, spray tans add definition to muscles, and smiles brighten with professional teeth whitening.
Flawless skin, rosy cheeks, and red lips are the trademark of the vintage pin-up girl. Inspired by this classic look, the trio of licensed aestheticians at Sweet Cheeks Boutique paint faces with Jane Iredale makeup products, but without clogging pores. As they apply micro-pulverized minerals and pigments to the skin, flat overlapping particles allow pores to breathe while deflecting environmental pollutants such as exhaust fumes and jealousy. The aestheticians also buttress their makeup applications with skin-care treatments that range from gentle facials and waxing to on-site Botox injections.

For more than 30 years, Cade Clinique Salon & Spa has been keeping Denver beautiful with traditional aesthetic services and cutting-edge treatments. Hairstylists use trims, highlights, and texturizing treatments to design flattering hairdos, while aestheticians pamper clients with customized facials and massage therapists soothe tightly knotted musculature. However, the spa's technicians demonstrate their dedication to modern advancements by enlisting various technologies as well. In addition to zapping unwanted stubble or concealing acne scars with the help of a cosmetic laser system, they also use microdermabrasion wands and ultrasound wave treatments to leave skin as smooth as the slide that runs down the side of Mount Everest.
Nouveux Wax's trained aestheticians take painstaking care to maximize comfort and cleanliness, swiftly treating the skin with azulene soft and lavender hard waxes and steadfastly maintaining a no-double-dipping policy during bikini waxes.
