The team at Colorado Hair Institute works to help patients reclaim full, lush heads of hair through a variety of procedures, both surgical and nonsurgical. In addition to detailed grafts performed with the aid of dissecting microscopes, the institute also offers laser hair therapy, which helps to spur the growth of hair through use of a laser comb.
Outside of scalp-related activities, the staff deploys a noninvasive Zerona low-level laser technology to assist its patrons in the quest to shed inches from abs, thighs, love handles, and tails.
The staff at Reveal Zerona Laser Body Slimming harnesses FDA-approved Zerona cold-laser technology, designed to reduce corporeal circumferences by an average of 3.5 inches. During sessions, clients relax beneath a beam-slinging apparatus for 40 minutes as it glides low-light lasers over their waistlines, backs, 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 does not require any recovery time. The staff suggests that patients can boost results with healthful eating habits, daily exercise, and regular hydration. Like sumo-wrestling costumes, caffeine and alcohol decrease the procedure’s potency.
A former staff sergeant in the Air Force. An airplane mechanic who repaired oxygen masks. A master massage therapist, registered medical assistant, and certified laser technician. Tina Long is all of these things and more. As the owner of Parker Med Spa, she combines her unique background with innovative technology to offer clients the latest anti-aging and beauty solutions.
Long helps her clients to deal with the frustration of weight loss with body-contouring treatments such as the Zerona and Yolo laser systems, having herself lost pounds, inches, and degrees of insulation with the fat-emulsifying devices. The historical ambiance, array of facial and body treatments, and advanced technology earned her spa recognition on ABC 7 and CityVoter's 2011 A-List; it was named a finalist in the Best Day Spa category and nominated in the Best Medical Spa category.
The practice is located within the charming yellow Hoskins House, a century-old Victorian landmark surrounded by cottonwood trees, complete with a porch swing. Inside, massage therapists and aestheticians perform relaxing massages, hot-stone pedicures, and skin-rejuvenating chemical peels in 15 private rooms. Technicians use seven different lasers to perform procedures ranging from vein and hair removal to nonsurgical face-lifts.
The staffers at Laser Magic devote themselves entirely to the circumference-reducing operation of the Zerona cold laser. Under the discerning eye of the center's medical director, an all-female team of laser technicians carries out each 40-minute treatment gently and efficiently. The FDA-approved procedure is completely noninvasive and requires minimal downtime. Staff also administer IPL treatments, facials, and injections, while waxers remove unwanted hair.
Inside a small brick building adorned with a chimney and green trim, Dave and Carol McEndaffer work amid lilac walls and potted plants. It’s a lovely setting for a couple in the business of beautifying people, which they have extensive experience in. The duo has owned salons throughout the past 37 years and added Laurels Salon of Distinction to their stable more than a decade ago. They've studied with seasoned stylists; while Dave focuses on hair, Carol pours her efforts into skin care, wellness, and restoration treatments for baldness and thinning hair.
In addition to cuts and ammonia-free color, they cosset their clientele with massages, spray tanning, and waxing. The salon is stationed across the street from Colorado State University, so it’s a convenient spot to de-stress after an exam or to cover your eyes with cucumbers before a scary PowerPoint presentation.
