At the Institute of Facial and Cosmetic Surgery, cosmetic surgeons Brent D. Kennedy and Steven Constantine use their expertise to bolster patients' appearances. Dr. Kennedy, who holds both a medical and a dental degree, established the institute in 1988 to he train doctors from across the country in a continuing-education fellowship program. He also shares his extensive knowledge as a clinical associate professor of aesthetic maxillofacial surgery at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School, and has seen his surgical techniques published in several medical journals and textbooks. His colleague, Dr. Constantine, combines his experience in surgical procedures with a deep-seated desire to get to know his patients and witness the positive mental transformation that follows the physical one.
In the 7,000-square-foot state-licensed surgical facility—which offers overnight stays and 24-hour nursing care—the duo performs a variety of procedures, ranging from face-lifts and tummy tucks to laser skin resurfacing.

After studying at the University of Utah, Emory University, and Vanderbilt, Dr. Justin Johnsen returned to his native Utah to raise his family and begin to realize his dream of helping those suffering from ocular and facial trauma. At Utah Eye & Facial Plastic Surgery, he and his trained aesthetician administer multiple types of surgical and nonsurgical treatments for the face, ranging from four types of cosmetic injectables—including Botox, Juvéderm, Radiesse, and Restylane—to the removal of painful eyelid tumors.
The doctor is happy to consult with any prospective client beforehand—and for free—in order to review all options and develop a rapport that can later be applied to a comedy bit.
Andrea, the holistic therapist behind Blissful Being Massage & Bodywork, brings bodies back into balance.

Now under new ownership, Beau Cheveux boasts a staff of experienced cosmetologists who transform lackluster lid covers into bountiful blinkers with professional eyelash extensions. The service makes lashes appear fuller and longer without makeup, and their waterproof quality makes them conducive to fluttering at fish or singing in the rain without the threat of mascara cheek stains. Adhered to the natural lash, extensions last six to eight weeks, at which point clients can opt to have them filled ($50+ extra) or let them shed with the natural lash cycle. Beau Cheveux's chic and elegant salon befits peeper pampering with floral arrangements and warm lighting to foster relaxation.
It says something that pageant queens of the likes of Ms. Utah and Miss Park City Continental trust their skin to the beauty experts at The Spa Dr. The staff’s treatments help make faces stage-ready by zapping unwanted body hair and coaxing away wrinkles. One of its tools is a super-diode laser, which thins out unwanted hair and produces minimal heat while mitigating redness on irritated skin. Services also include chemical peels and injectables, which serve to fight off the signs of aging without making the client go under the knife or halt the earth’s orbit around the sun.
