Like signatures and golf swings, skin types are unique to each individual, which is why the specialists at Colorado Massage Therapy and Skin Care begin each facial treatment with a skin analysis to determine individual needs. After examining pores and gently removing week-old milk moustaches, the aestheticians select masks and treatments designed by Sanitas—a company committed to cleansing and nourishing skin without the use of parabens or unnatural preservatives. In addition to brightening skin and unburdening pores, the specialists perform specialty massages to address even deeper issues. Their knowledge of Swedish, deep-tissue, shiatsu, and trigger-point modalities allows them to help relieve tension and heal injuries.
Spavia Day Spa's staff pampers its guests by doling out muscle-melting massages and rejuvenating treatments using natural products. Guests receive a bathrobe and sandals before each treatment as they wait in the spa's retreat room. Because "relaxation" can mean different things to different people, Spavia specially customizes their treatments for each guest, from focusing massages on problem areas to avoiding the glowing whisker during exfoliating facials. Spavia also offers membership packages that allow for affordable treatments, and provides a free signature treatment for a nominated local hero or community member in need through their Spavia Cares program.
Adhering to the spa-wide belief that natural ingredients and noninvasive treatments yield the best results in skincare, Velvet Day Spa pampers clients with a variety of services—ranging from facials to spray tanning—done with organic products. The skilled aestheticians also use their advanced industry experience to pamper clients with modern techniques and procedures including permanent-makeup applications, nonsurgical face-lifts, and microdermabrasions. Soon after opening the spa in 2007, owner Jeanette Ryan created an organic line of products called Velvet Skincare, which is counterintuitively not designed for people with textile skin.
Supervised by an on-staff medical director, Cara Bella Studio's staff brings its A game to rejuvenate entire bodies with massages and med-spa treatments. Trained massage therapists wring tension from muscles to reduce stress and widen range of movement and also prop up postures by whispering pep talks to vertebrae. Nonsurgical med-spa services such as chemical peels and microdermabrasion treatments aim to liberate facescapes from fine lines, and teeth whitening and eyelash extensions amp up smiles and winks, respectively.
Aestheticians at Center For Advanced Skin Care go beyond temporarily alleviating superficial skin concerns, analyzing each client's skin type and lifestyle to actually help heal and reverse damage caused to complexions by stress, environmental damage, and aging. Before each facial, staff members study the skin to determine the most effective blend of medical-grade skincare products. Products and skilled aestheticians work together to remove barriers to even, untroubled complexions in partnership with the body?s natural hormone cycles, rhythms, and funkadelic bass lines. The Center also treats underlying conditions including stress, diet, and lifestyle that exacerbate skin issues, allowing complexions to come into their own.
Former martial-arts coach Aleksandr Serdyuk employs his corporeal awareness in tandem with a therapeutic team to carry out massages and weight-loss programs. Body wraps and the heat of a traditional Russian banya?complete with aromatherapy and oak-branch treatments?detoxify the body as they supplement weight-loss initiatives. The licensed massage therapists also undergo continuing education as they build their repertoire of more than 10 massage modalities, like deep-tissue massage for action figures.
