Dr. Nick Slenkovich, chief practitioner at Colorado Plastic Surgery Center, helms a team of cosmetic medical professionals who serve patients with compassionate medical care and cutting-edge procedures. During each 60-minute, intense-pulsed-light photofacial, a skilled technician analyzes the patient's skin to diagnose problem areas and chart a treatment plan before harnessing the laser light to seek and destroy impurities under the skin’s surface. The laser treatments aim to break-up groups of pigment, assuaging the effects of sun damage, broken capillaries, acne, and facial break dancing. After each treatment, discarded skin cells continue to regenerate over the next 7 to 14 days, with residual rosiness fading after a few days. Two to four treatments are recommended for optimal results.
Inside Exquisite Salon and Spa, pops of dark lilac and an occasional splash of red interrupt a sea of pristine white floors and furniture. The space also features spotless, private rooms dedicated to services such as steam baths, body treatments, and colon hydrotherapy.
Aesthetic specialists harness the power of light during photo-rejuvenation skin treatments and keep harmful rays at bay with spray tanning. In addition to enhancing facial features, permanent makeup artists hide flaws ranging from uneven pigmentation to scars. Stylists also beautify faces with traditional means such as makeup applications, haircuts, and highlights.
Under the expert guidance of Dr. Dean Anderson, DC, the staff at Denver Zerona Lipo Laser harnesses the FDA-approved Zerona cold-laser technology, designed to reduce corporeal circumferences by an average of 3.5 inches. During each session, clients relax beneath a beam-slinging apparatus for 40 minutes as it glides low-light lasers over their waistline, back, hips, and thighs, emulsifying adipose tissue so that fat can sneak its way out of the body. The disintegrated lipid depots can then be absorbed by the body’s obsessively tidy lymphatic system and expelled through the body’s natural detoxification process and complex system of water-slides. The noninvasive treatment requires minimal recovery time.
i-Lipo Chic vigorously shakes hands with science to usher in a new age of painless cosmetic treatments. Their signature service, for example, streamlines physiques by sending in non-invasive lasers to deflate fat cells, eliminating downtime, pain, and risk in the process. Featured on The Doctors and Dr. Oz, the FDA-approved treatment opens temporary pores in fat cells, through which they release their contents. While the process occurs at a micro level, the overall results are visible to the naked eye and the clothed eye alike. The treatments smooth away cellulite and slim the circumferences of areas such as stomachs, arms, and thighs.
The Colorado Center for Photomedicine treats skin issues with a variety of light-based aesthetic and medical procedures. The Titan procedure bathes the face, neck, and abdomen with infrared light to tighten collagen bundles, making the skin look as if it went skinny-dipping in the Fountain of Youth. The process requires no surgery, injections, or recovery time—and after 30 minutes to an hour, faces will feel spry enough to go seven rounds with Father Time. Once you're finished, the center will provide expert guidance on how to nurture fertile faces during the three to six months it takes for new collagen to bloom into smooth cheekscapes.
Featured on programs such as The Dr. Oz Show and Good Morning America, Aqualipo’s water-assisted fat-removal system sneaks under skin to steal away lipid collections from designated body geography. Licensed physicians Dr. Jeffrey Caruth and Dr. Mauricio Giraldo photograph, mark, and sketch abstract self-portraits on the client's problem area before applying local anesthetic and cutting a small incision to reach the fat layer. Pulsing water jets then flush out fatty tissue with a sterile fluid, evicting lipids without stressing surrounding muscles, nerves, or other tissues. Unlike traditional liposuction, Aqualipo treatments require no general anesthesia and typically last 30–45 minutes, leaving most patients ready for discharge 15 minutes after completion. Clients can expect faster results and less intense side effects—such as swelling, bruising, and uncontrollably transmitting ham-radio signals—than those caused by conventional liposuction procedures.
