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.
Blue diamonds are among the most desirable in the world, so it's fitting that Tangela B. Gaynor has named her spa after the precious gemstone. The licensed cosmetologist and massage therapist ensures that each of her clients feels flawless inside and out, whether she's soothing away tension with aromatherapy massages, applying natural-looking eyelash extensions, or imbuing skin with a richly bronze hue courtesy of a spray tan.
A blowout is more than a simple blow-dry to the experts at Plush! Blowout Bar & Salon. They offer six hair-smoothing blowouts with names such as Cosmopolitan and Kamikaze, as well as Shirley Temple blowouts for kids. The staff also cuts and colors hair into classic and modern styles and waxes unwanted facial hair.
Sometimes hair sprouts forth from less than desirable places, while other areas of the body lack the lengthy strands we long for. Miya’s Wax and Skin Care’s aim is simple: remedy these problems while simultaneously pampering clients. The staff adds length to hair with eyelash extensions and subtracts strands with full-body waxing. Much like the ghosts of ponytails past, Miya’s Wax and Skin Care can be found inside of Dolce Vita Salon.
At Belleza Spa and Salon, Melanie Menendez's dedication to skincare comes from the heart. For years, she suffered from adult acne due to an undiagnosed dairy allergy. When she learns about her clients' skincare needs, her reaction is "I know how you feel. I will fix you and help you achieve your goals." Her psychology degree is then put to use as she reads each client's personality to determine what they want out of the treatment: whether a social, interactive experience or a peaceful retreat.
To gain an understanding of their holistic skin health, Melanie checks in with clients about what they're eating, the products they use at home, and whether they use shortening as sunscreen. From there, she customizes blends of organic Sanitas skincare products, a line created in Boulder, Colorado, that uses ingredients such as healing vitamin C to create lustrous complexions. While she performs the facials, clients can enjoy soothing spa or pop music and the quirky, inviting decor?some rooms include photos of Audrey Hepburn and polka-dot details, and others are covered with zebra print or bright colors.
Karico Aesthetics' owner, Kathy, boasts a broad range of beauty skills that she's acquired over 14 years in the spa industry. She cares for skin with custom facials, peels, and even high-tech nonsurgical face-lifts that firm the skin using electrical stimulation. She also tends to body hair, whether that means boosting eyelashes with extensions or using her waxing skills to clean up bikini lines and sculpt eyebrows.
