The Colorado Center for Photomedicine treats skin issues with a variety of light-based aesthetic and medical procedures. The Titan procedure bathes the face, neck, and abdomen with infrared light to tighten collagen bundles, making the skin look as if it went skinny-dipping in the Fountain of Youth. The process requires no surgery, injections, or recovery time—and after 30 minutes to an hour, faces will feel spry enough to go seven rounds with Father Time. Once you're finished, the center will provide expert guidance on how to nurture fertile faces during the three to six months it takes for new collagen to bloom into smooth cheekscapes.
i-Lipo Chic vigorously shakes hands with science to usher in a new age of painless cosmetic treatments. Their signature service, for example, streamlines physiques by sending in non-invasive lasers to deflate fat cells, eliminating downtime, pain, and risk in the process. Featured on The Doctors and Dr. Oz, the FDA-approved treatment opens temporary pores in fat cells, through which they release their contents. While the process occurs at a micro level, the overall results are visible to the naked eye and the clothed eye alike. The treatments smooth away cellulite and slim the circumferences of areas such as stomachs, arms, and thighs.
Cashmere Salon and Day Spa refers to its clients as the Cashmere family, a fitting pseudonym both because of the facility's welcoming atmosphere and because the beauty haven is arguably large enough to actually be a second home. From within a spacious interior, staff members perform almost every traditional beautifying service known to the industry. In addition to a selection of essential hair, nail, and skin services, the seemingly unending menu includes specialized treatments such as extensions, keratin treatments, brow tinting, and individual lash extensions, as well as more long-term fixes such as laser hair removal and nonsurgical face-lifts. The spa even offers injectables such as Dysport, Botox, and Juvéderm for those who want to turn back the hands of time instead of trying to slow them down with a secret handshake.
Under the expert guidance of Dr. Dean Anderson, DC, the staff at Denver Zerona Lipo Laser harnesses the FDA-approved Zerona cold-laser technology, designed to reduce corporeal circumferences by an average of 3.5 inches. During each session, clients relax beneath a beam-slinging apparatus for 40 minutes as it glides low-light lasers over their waistline, back, 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 requires minimal recovery time.
Dr. Nick Slenkovich, chief practitioner at Colorado Plastic Surgery Center, helms a team of cosmetic medical professionals who serve patients with compassionate medical care and cutting-edge procedures. During each 60-minute, intense-pulsed-light photofacial, a skilled technician analyzes the patient's skin to diagnose problem areas and chart a treatment plan before harnessing the laser light to seek and destroy impurities under the skin’s surface. The laser treatments aim to break-up groups of pigment, assuaging the effects of sun damage, broken capillaries, acne, and facial break dancing. After each treatment, discarded skin cells continue to regenerate over the next 7 to 14 days, with residual rosiness fading after a few days. Two to four treatments are recommended for optimal results.
Few aestheticians specialize in high-altitude skin care. Kimberly Hall, owner of Refresh Laser Skin Spa, is among the elite. When she isn't addressing the complexion concerns of Denver natives and beanstalk dwellers, she and her skilled staff treat individuals with noninvasive, customized treatments for the face and body. True to the spa's name, lasers perform many of the services, assisting technicians in tightening skin, erasing spider veins, or smoothing away cellulite. But analog appointments are also available, from signature brightening facials to detoxifying seaweed body wraps.
