Unpeel P.C.'s medical director and founder, Dr. Laura Darby, and her staff bolster beauty and maintain health with a combination of Eastern and Western practices, such as herbal medicine, energy work, aromatherapy, age management medicine, functional medicine, food sensitivity testing, weight management, holistic internal medicine, and aesthetic services, such as skin care and non-surgical cosmetic procedures. She really focuses on getting to know a patient, as evidenced by her detailed consultations before any aesthetic procedure as well as her integrative-medicine, anti-aging, and weight-management consultations that supplement educational classes and seminars. Dr. Darby customizes any experience by asking questions and individualizing treatment plans for each patient. Dr. Darby personally performs or directly supervises all of Unpeel P.C.'s services.
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.
At BioAesthetics Skin Enhancement & Rejuvenation LLC, Dr. Andre Reed watches over a staff of licensed medical aestheticians as they perform rejuvenating MicroPeel treatments utilizing medical-grade skincare products. Staff members peer inside pores during a 15-minute skin analysis, gaining epidermal insight to tailor treatments to the alternating rhyme schemes of face-painted sonnets.
After beginning to adopt more environmentally conscious practices in their personal lives, hairstylists Joy and Jeremy realized how hard the salon atmosphere could be on Mother Nature and set out to open their own eco-friendly salon. Their salon's open floor plan, organized into chic styling stations and suffused in natural light from numerous surrounding windows, highlights bright modern salon furniture, all of which is reused. In addition to the décor, their green reach expands to the salon's all-natural styling products and energy-efficient, retractable blow dryers, which dangle from the ceiling like a paratrooper after a poorly executed landing. Their resident aestheticians, nail techs, and massage therapists dole out the salon's expansive menu of services, pampering clients with custom facials, head-to-toe waxing treatments, and relaxing mani-pedis.
At Slim Ambition, technicians sculpt clients’ figures using cold-laser technology. The instrument works to break down and convert fat stores in trouble spots into circulating fatty acids, which are burned off in exercise afterward. The laser requires no downtown and achieves its goal without subjecting clients to needles or pain.
Named Best Haircut/Salon in Colorado Community Newspapers' 2009 Best of the Best Lone Tree, Blue Mist relies on an experienced squad of aesthetic experts to provide a broad range of beauty-related services. Like the chainsaw pointillists of the early '20s, the salon's savvy stylists—who average 12 years of experience—specialize in artful cuts (starting at $45 for women, $30 for men) and coloring ($70 and up) to help clients achieve museum-quality hairstyles. Facial and body hair is kept at bay with a variety of waxing services, including eyebrow waxing ($18), leg waxing ($35+), and bikini waxing in traditional ($35), French ($42), and Brazilian ($55) varieties. Manicures ($20) and pedicures ($35) are available to help fingerless-glove models and barefoot sous chefs keep cuticles and calluses under control, and both can be upgraded to include hot-oil treatments and soothing masks.
