Deseret Aesthetic & Lifestyle Institute medical director Dr. Gregory Allen is a skin specialist who has contributed to FDA research and the FDA approval process. He now shares his epidermal expertise with licensed aestheticians and laser technicians as they apply permanent makeup and perform peels and facials. High-tech equipment abounds at the center, from a VeinGogh Ohmic Thermolysis System for eliminating spider veins to a CO2 laser for reducing wrinkles. Aestheticians rely on skincare products from Derma MD and Obagi, which soothe skin so that clients don't have to cut eyeholes in a receiving blanket and wear it as a mask. An elegant vibe radiates from the spa’s cream-and-black motif, which clients first encounter in a waiting room lined with cushy suede chairs.

Lisa Morrow—a certified permanent-makeup clinician and certified nurse—gives clients the gift of 24-hour glamour by skillfully applying permanent makeup and lash extensions. During permanent-makeup sessions, Lisa uses a sterilized needle to apply micropigments that fill in sparse brows or outline smiles for a nonstop put-together look that benefits busy parents and professionals, people with makeup allergies, and chemotherapy patients. All sessions include a 30-minute consultation and the application of a topical anesthetic designed to increase client comfort, as well as a touchup within eight weeks of the initial treatment to ensure proper maintenance. Lisa's lash-enhancing services include 10–45 false strands per eye, which she applies painstakingly one by one to create a natural mascara look or a lush fringe that adds a dose of glamour to eyes with or without makeup. Lisa can also add colored crystal to lashes, adding multifaceted sparkle to eyes without donning kaleidoscope-lens glasses.
