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.
Certified personal trainer Mechelle Haflich is familiar with both the highs and lows of physical health. As a bodybuilder, she has won competitions focused on superior strength, and as a registered massage therapist, she has eased injured muscles back into action. Both titles have proven essential in planning FitBody Studio, where she takes a holistic view on wellness through fitness, massage, and spa services. Alongside a team of highly credentialed instructors, therapists, and aestheticians, Mechelle's team adjusts her programs to suit each client's ambitions, which range from losing inches to being able to deadlift a locomotive.
On the exercise side of the curriculum, private training sessions and group classes build endurance—Vinyasa yoga and kickboxing sessions round out the stair climbs and cardio drills of the Bleachers class, which takes place inside the Colorado College football stadium. To repair overworked deltoids, the studio's massage programs relax tendons and target injuries with a mix of modalities. After workouts sculpt bodies, FitBody Studio’s spa polishes them smooth with waxing services and custom facials.
Since opening their first spa—Sassy SunTan & Oxygen Bar—Heather and Adam Larribas have added a second sunning sanctuary called Sassy Tan & Spa. In addition to providing tanning services, the original location features an aromatherapeutic oxygen bar, while its counterpart on Star Ranch Road offers massage therapy. Visitors to the oxygen bar inhale air that's 90–95% oxygen, as opposed to the 21% usually found in everyday air. Meanwhile, aromatherapy scents such as vanilla, piña colada, and orange bolster the energizing effects of the vapor as soothing eucalyptus scents attract curious koalas.
Both locations offer bronzing via UV beds as well as airbrush gear. In accordance with a mission statement prioritizing cleanliness and comfort, staffers stock each private treatment room with tissues, water, deodorant, and candy. Here, tanners bask in the glow of beds equipped with varying levels of intensity, or close their eyes as a cloud of bronzing mist settles on their skin during an airbrush tan.
Fountain of Youth Skin Care?s skilled aestheticians restore skin to a glowing, youthful state with vitamin-infused serums and organic scrubs. Their popular organic enzyme facial, for example, hydrates and rejuvenates skin cells with natural enzymes and fruit extracts. Though they pride themselves on using all-natural ingredients, the spa?s aestheticians don?t shy away from advanced treatments such as chemical peels and MicroPhototherapy facials. The latter of these combats signs of aging with collagen-stimulating pulses of heat and light energy, and its lack of abrasives means that no downtime is necessary for recovery. Waxing treatments keep freshly groomed faces and bodies free of unwanted hair, while micro-needling is designed to help the body form new layers of smoother, younger-looking skin.
For the past 32 years, Tan Your Hide's proprietors have witnessed every innovation in UV and sunless tanning, selecting the best and most current technologies to outfit nine locations. European Ergoline UV tanning beds darken skin tones at seven levels of intensity. Tan Your Hide's representatives replace each bed's bulbs a minimum of four times per year, maintaining their capacity for perfecting pigmentation. Heated Mystic HD tanning booths spritz physiques with an even coat of healthy color. Tan Your Hide's interest in skin perfection doesn't end with coloration?its UV-free Beauty Angel red-light-therapy booth stimulates production of collagen and elastin, improving the condition of skin all over the body. The device's floor vibrates to tighten connective tissues and thereby reduce the appearance of cellulite.
