Framed paintings of sun-soaked landscapes bedeck the walls at Studio 27, where qualified staff strives to keep patrons comfortable during med-spa services or pampering sessions for their hair or nails. Sessions begin with one-on-one consultations during which clients share their goals for the treatment and staff shares "Honk if you love beauty" bumper stickers. Owner and registered nurse Michael Renee Bradburry administers all medical treatments, which include injections of brow-smoothing Botox, Juvaderm, and Radiesse. Obagi’s medical line of skincare products augments microdermabrasions and chemical peels administered by aides, and staffers also beautify heads and hands with hair and nail services.
Ragamuffins Spa works towards a single goal: to care and serve the inner beauty as well as the outer beauty. A service menu of glycolic peels and indulgent facials serves this purpose by helping to boost each client?s sense of well-being and self-esteem.
Inside the meticulously cleaned facility, equipped with training from laser specialist Victor Byers, the technicians at The New Canvas specialize in erasing ink and returning skin to its original blank state. Though they custom tailor each tattoo-removal plan, the centerpiece of their arsenal is always the Quanta DNA Q+C+T laser. The instrument, which can be calibrated to different wavelengths suited to different colors of ink, blasts a square beam over the skin to break apart ink molecules without causing harmful laser overlap. Once broken down, the particles are dissolved naturally by the body's lymphatic system. The team also runs a Zimmer Cryo 6 cooling system during each treatment, which, like riding in a convertible filled with snowmen, cools the skin with gusts of chilled air.
The Colorado Dermatology Institute helps its patients become comfortable in their own skin with a variety of cosmetic-skincare, dermatologic, and surgical services. Microdermabrasion treatments and chemical peels slough off dead skin cells, and Botox injections smooth wrinkles. Aside from aesthetic treatments, a team of dermatologists treats patients with skin conditions such as acne, rosacea, and eczema. For those suffering from skin cancer, the institute's doctors can surgically remove squamous-cell carcinoma and basal-cell carcinoma.
Internationally licensed massage therapist Zhenya Chsheglova knows her calling in life is to help people. She spent years as a nurse practitioner in health clinic and children?s hospitals before opening the day spa with her husband, Christopher. Their staff dishes out face-firming facials and muscle-relaxing massages. Full-body waxing services tackle pesky hairs on the chin and upper legs, and pampering treatments, including mani-pedis and body wraps, can be combined for spa parties with small groups.
Under the watchful eye of dermatologist Dr. Elizabeth Piantanida, the specialists at Skin MD Colorado harness powerful lasers, medical-grade skincare products, and their own know-how to create custom treatment plans. The services help slow or eliminate hair growth, prompt the birth of new skin cells or collagen, or smooth out wrinkles more easily than having a heart-to-heart with a mirror.
