The expert aestheticians at Beautiful You Skincare Studio beautify corporeal forms with hydrating facials and spray-tan services. During Tahitian spray tans, faux-sun wielders will darken moon-kissed skin with golden hues in roughly 15 minutes. Each private tanning session imbues hides with summery glows, which, like the best naps, can last anywhere from 7–10 days. Alternatively, one-hour hydro-facials rejuvenate world-weary mugs with exfoliating water technology that gently sloughs away dead skin cells and sends moisturizing marauders deep into epidermal layers. The treatments leave skin smooth, moisturized, and glowing like a smiley-face button under a flashlight before a face and décolleté massage kneads upper-body tension into oblivion.
Every treatment at Serene Serendipity: face to face, LLC begins and ends in a private suite with decorative candles and soft music foreshadowing the pampering to come. Here, a licensed aesthetician revives tired skin with treatments that incorporate various serums, masks, and techniques. For instance, the 90-minute relaxing luxury spa facial relies on steam to open pores, rotary brushes to dislodge toxins, and various massage techniques to keep the therapist’s hands from high-fiving each other. The butter back body J-Lo glow treatment, on the other hand, renders skin soft and radiant through thorough exfoliation and a moisturizing seaweed wrap. On top of these lavish treatments, the center also offers microdermabrasions and waxing with soft and hard waxes from GiGi and Berins, respectively.
Fountain of Youth Skin Care’s skilled aestheticians restore skin to a glowing, youthful state with vitamin-infused serums and organic scrubs. Their popular organic enzyme facial, for example, hydrates and rejuvenates skin cells with natural enzymes and fruit extracts. Though they pride themselves on using all-natural ingredients, the spa’s aestheticians don’t shy away from advanced treatments such as chemical peels and MicroPhototherapy facials. The latter of these combats signs of aging with collagen-stimulating pulses of heat and light energy, and its lack of abrasives means that no downtime is necessary for recovery.
Facials may be front and center on the spa’s menu, but the staff also tends to skin elsewhere with cocoon-like body wraps designed to erase cellulite and help shoulders sprout their nascent wings. Waxing treatments keep freshly groomed faces and bodies free of unwanted hair.
Since opening their first spa—Sassy SunTan & Oxygen Bar—Heather and Adam Larribas have added a second sunning sanctuary called Sassy Tan & Spa. In addition to providing tanning services, the original location features an aromatherapeutic oxygen bar, while its counterpart on Star Ranch Road offers massage therapy. Visitors to the oxygen bar inhale air that's 90–95% oxygen, as opposed to the 21% usually found in everyday air. Meanwhile, aromatherapy scents such as vanilla, piña colada, and orange bolster the energizing effects of the vapor as soothing eucalyptus scents attract curious koalas.
Both locations offer bronzing via UV beds as well as airbrush gear. In accordance with a mission statement prioritizing cleanliness and comfort, staffers stock each private treatment room with tissues, water, deodorant, and candy. Here, tanners bask in the glow of beds equipped with varying levels of intensity, or close their eyes as a cloud of bronzing mist settles on their skin during an airbrush tan.
For the past 31 years, Tan Your Hide's proprietors have witnessed every innovation in UV and sunless tanning, selecting the best and most current technologies to outfit nine locations. European Ergoline UV tanning beds darken skin tones at seven levels of intensity that mimic seven different tropical vacations. Tan Your Hide's representatives replace each bed's bulbs a minimum of four times per year, maintaining their capacity for perfecting pigmentation. Heated Mystic HD tanning booths spritz physiques with an even coat of healthy color. Customers can also purchase commercial-grade tanning beds for use at home. Tan Your Hide's interest in skin perfection doesn't end with coloration—its UV-free Beauty Angel red-light-therapy booth stimulates production of collagen, elastin, and internal spandex, improving the condition of skin all over the body. The device's floor vibrates to tighten connective tissues and thereby reduce the appearance of cellulite.
At Indulge Bistro and Wine Bar, there are many ways to treat yourself—more than 75, to be specific. That’s the approximate count of the international and regional wines that populate the racks at the wine bar, which earned Open Table’s 2012 Top 100 Notable Wine Lists in the USA award. Ranging from New Zealand sauvignon blanc to Italian prosecco and syrah made in Colorado, diners have seemingly limitless pairing options to complement the kitchen’s bistro cuisine. The sommelier can also make pairing suggestions, such as coupling an Oregon King Estate pinot gris with seared scallops drizzled in Valencia orange and ginger beurre blanc. As you sip and dine, the floor-to-ceiling windows provide awe-inspiring views of the Front Range and the patio offers a place to sink into plush couches beside a fire pit.
