Dr. Christopher J. Knuth merges his 23 years in the medical community with a dedication to mending skin and soft-tissue injuries and the expertise of his skilled, friendly staff to grant clients effective cosmetic treatments in relaxing, spa-like confines. Wielding pharmaceutical-grade products such as Latisse, SkinCeuticals, and Obagi, the physician and his staff sculpt ravishing exteriors through a range of services.
Microdermabrasion and chemical peels rediscover the face's hidden youth by wiping away dull outer cells, and vein therapy fades unsightly blood vessels that are visible through skin. The Lumenis AcuPulse CO2 laser helps treat superficial and deep fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, and acne scars. Clients revel in the care, heaping accolades upon the staff and declaring their experiences at Aspen Medical Aesthetics and Laser Clinic as "nothing but a pleasure" and "definitely worth it."
Exquisite Threading's eyebrow-fashioning operation is led by a team of experienced threaders plying the ancient depilatory art in a soothing environment. Brow bearers seeking a refined look recline in the studio's comfy chairs as expert weavers adroitly lasso loitering hairs, expelling them at the root. A natural and chemical-free treatment, threading spares patrons much of the discomfort, swelling, and redness of waxing.
Under the direction of board-certified physician Kathleen Blocher, Crossings provides a wide range of skin-rejuvenating and aesthetic-enhancing services. Opt for laser hair reduction to zap stubborn fuzz on the lip ($240 value), chin ($240 value), cheek ($300 value), underarms ($300 value), or bikini line ($375 value). The trio of sessions takes place over three visits, and all sessions must target the same area. An intense pulsed light is used to heat follicles, a method designed to disable hair-growing cells, significantly reduce hair growth over time, and curb the unwanted attention of amorous gorillas. Crossings recommends between four and six treatments for optimal results.
Licensed aesthetician Kelly Gish slathers faces with skin-smoothing botanical extracts and gently shapes brows using client-preferred methods. During each 50-minute facial, Kelly cleanses pores before applying a papaya enzyme polish, which digests dead skin cells and washes them down with a glass of milk. Next, the pumpkin-papaya mask retextures and hydrates visages. Post-facial, Kelly employs soft-touch and artistic techniques to shape linear lid frames with old-fashioned Photoshop tools such as waxing and tweezing. Earth tones and zebra prints adorn Kelly's private studio space, and textured walls bear gilded letters and small, wood framed mirrors.
Waking up to a new outbreak of acne can put a real damper on a day. That’s why the aestheticians at Rachel’s Skin Suite specialize in both treating and preventing breakouts. Their anti-inflammatory salicylic-acid mask minimizes breakouts immediately, and their six-session treatment series gradually works on complexions using a blend of acne facials, chemical exfoliations, and stress relief, for long-lasting results. Once skin is in balance, the staff offers supplementary facials that maintain skin’s overall health using advanced ingredients such as collagen, vitamin C, and resurfacing agents. All treatments are customized with a combination of high-powered ingredients, antioxidants, and relaxation techniques, allowing the staff to help clients keep their skin healthy without resorting to face pushups.
If there’s one thing the veteran waxing technicians at High Brow Waxing Boutique know for sure, it’s that clients hate pain. That's why they use premium Cirepil wax, whose soy and beeswax ingredients are designed to ease hair shafts from follicles with as little irritation as possible.
