Capsules do all the work at Aquarius Tanning Salon & High Tech Spa, where high-tech equipment takes the place of spa technicians. Clients step into tanning beds outfitted with Wolff lamps to turn their skin a bronzer hue, or lay down inside of the slim capsule to boost their metabolism and burn calories. Aquarius's other booths hydrate the skin, soften fine lines and wrinkles, and mist UV-free spray tans.
Owner Cindy Goodman brings more than 20 years of medical cosmetic experience to A New Image Laser and Skin Care Clinic. Since 1995, she has personally performed each laser hair-removal treatment and thousands of cosmetic laser procedures, putting to shame laser centers that rely on hourly robots. With a dedication to helping clients look and feel more confident, Goodman wields her lasers to treat skin conditions, such as spider veins and cellulite. Evening and Saturday hours are available by appointment to accommodate clients who have to spend the workweek foraging for edible berries and potable water.
Helmed by skin expert Dr. David Charles, Ageless Advantages' staff rejuvenates skin with laser treatments, microdermabrasions, peels, and injectables. In addition to higher-tech solutions designed to make shaving or makeup unnecessary for anything besides advanced pet grooming, the team combats a variety of skin woes with BellaDerm products. The tonics and salves draw on natural, medical-grade emollients that aim beyond the surface all the way to cellular health.
Like the receipts, crumbs, pennies, and lint that linger in the depths of a purse, dead skin cells and dirt can clog your pores and form a dingy dead-face mask over a beautiful mug. Let the skilled aestheticians at the Skin Renewal Clinic dump your face purse upside down, shake out the crumbs, and vacuum up the grossness with a microderm-infusion treatment. After a 15-minute skin consultation, you'll choose from a microderm treatment designed for improving age-related facial flaws or a treatment designed for healing and reducing the appearance of acne. The outermost layer of the face is gently polished with a diamond microdermabrasion system, sloughing off dead skin cells like a snake shedding last year's tired fashions. Fine lines are softened, discoloration is lightened, and skin is exfoliated. The appearance of scars from acne may diminish with continued treatment.

The interior of a business can affect how its customers feel. What kind of decor do you use to help make your clients feel pampered and at ease?
This is a doctor's office, not a spa. You have a medical assistant or a registered nurse working with you on your treatments.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a client?
I can see my stretch marks again. (Post pregnancy weight loss of 100 lbs. left a lot of sagging, loose skin in the stomach area. We tightened the skin area to the point of [the client] being able to see the area below the belly button again. She was very satisfied with the results).
What steps do you take to make your clients feel at ease?
We always walk through what is to be expected during a procedure, and you will stay with the same medical assistant/registered nurse during all your treatments.
In the past, people who wanted to lose weight had to either exercise frequently and diet or undergo invasive surgery. But now, the technicians at Colorado Springs Laser Like Lipo offer clients another solution: noninvasive laser liposuction. Unlike exercise, this technology can spot-treat fat on problem areas such as the abdomen, thighs, and back. And unlike traditional liposuction, this treatment requires no anesthesia, stitches, or downtime.
It works by sending cold laser light down to the fat cells in order to create tiny, temporary perforations in the fat cells' membranes. This prompts the cells to release their fatty acids into the body and shrink, resulting in lost inches. The entire process happens while clients recline in a comfortable position and read, listen to music, or nap.
Complementing the laser lipo are services such as whole-body vibration therapy, nutritional counseling, and detox treatments.
