When Mona Borden founded Mona's Dermatherapy in 2003, she assembled a staff with diverse areas of expertise in medical-grade skin treatments and spa and beauty services. Borden learned to treat acne, acne scars, rosacea, and aging-related complaints with frozen skin stem cells at the DNA Institute in Ventura, California for cryostem cell therapy, and addresses similar skin conditions with microdermabrasion and chemical peels. As a professional permanent-makeup artist, Borden highlights natural facial features and saves Gene Simmons impersonators the trouble of reapplying grease paint before every trip to the grocery store. Mona's Dermatherapy’s medical doctors oversee Botox and Juvederm injections and Zerona body-contouring treatments, and aestheticians perform beauty services such as facials and waxes.
Stephanie Maner transitioned to the med-spa world after working with kids suffering from critical skin ailments at the Children?s Hospital in Denver. Armed with high-tech equipment, Stephanie designs custom skin treatments that range from facials and chemical peels to scar-removal sessions. Stephanie also performs microdermabrasion treatments to help treat fine lines and leave skin as smooth as the bald head of the figure on a bowling trophy, and the facility hosts acupuncture treatments and yoga classes.

At Nail Club & Spa, a full-service nail salon for men and women, a licensed staff welcomes guests to sit at one of many manicure stations or to lounge in a row of pedicure chairs. Their chairs are no traditional thrones, partly because they aren’t in a castle with 400-year-old priceless artifacts called the king and queen. Instead, their thrones are equipped with massaging capabilities and pedicure baths that have disposable liners and fresh water, keeping bacteria at bay. The staff further tends to appendages by polishing nails from a palette of more than 100 colors, whose chemical odor doesn't linger thanks to the spa’s well-designed ventilation system. Additionally, the Nail Club & Spa team pours complimentary drinks, turns on a flat-screen television, and renders a number of skincare services in private rooms.

Studio 25’s chocolate-pumpkin peel fall facial, packed with hundreds of antioxidant compounds, works to remedy the effects of summer sun exposure by repairing and hydrating skin. A skilled aesthetician wields the GlyMed Plus chocolate-pumpkin peel’s potent enzymes to flush dead and dry cells from the epidermis as compounds derived from pumpkin seeds work to stimulate elastin production and gourd-based barter economies within the skin. Cheeks regain tone and tightness as moisturizing components smooth texture and bolster the face’s protective barrier of skin. Frontispieces unwind further during the mini facial, which complements the peel with a cleanse, a facial massage, a calming treatment mask, and an eye treatment that aims to fade age lines, dark circles, and traumatic memories of middle-school gym class. Finally, aestheticians’ fingers mollify upper-body muscles with a soothing neck and shoulder massage that untangles muscle knots and melts tension into blissful oblivion. Groupon holders can also boost their at-home beauty regimen with a 10% discount on all products.
