When Mona Borden founded Mona's Dermatherapy in 2003, she assembled a staff with diverse areas of expertise in medical-grade skin treatments and spa and beauty services. Borden learned to treat acne, acne scars, rosacea, and aging-related complaints with frozen skin stem cells at the DNA Institute in Ventura, California for cryostem cell therapy, and addresses similar skin conditions with microdermabrasion and chemical peels. As a professional permanent-makeup artist, Borden highlights natural facial features and saves Gene Simmons impersonators the trouble of reapplying grease paint before every trip to the grocery store. Mona's Dermatherapy’s medical doctors oversee Botox and Juvederm injections and Zerona body-contouring treatments, and aestheticians perform beauty services such as facials and waxes.
The certified laser technicians at What Were You Inking? remove regrettable tattoos of all sizes, colors, and quality. After performing an initial exam to assess the damage, professional brand lifters de-dedicate biceps to former lovers with the help of the Astanza Trinity laser. Using three wavelengths, the machine can dissolve most colors of the rainbow into an invisible ink mist without scraping the delicate epidermis, minimizing the chance of scarring and encouraging rapid recovery. Each session lasts approximately 15 minutes, and depending on the tattoo, bodies can be free of poorly drawn Muppet Babies in five to 10 treatments.
A neon-lit fortune cookie hung in the window is the first clue that this is not your average, impersonal tattoo parlor. Here, tattoo artist Jon Lew and his staff of ink and piercing specialists cultivate a fun and cozy atmosphere, compounded with a level of professionalism that comes from having more than 20 years of combined experience.
Tattoos begin with a consult from one of three tattoo artists who draw up custom illustrations to match the designs lurking in clients' minds. Fortune Cookie Tattoo's team boasts specialties in styles ranging from traditional to neo-traditional, which come to fruition via a spectrum of inks, including high-color, black and gray, and scratch and sniff.
Denver Skin Aesthetics is a skin-care clinic staffed by a flock of medical doctors that remain on-hand at all times. Situated on the top floor of the Plastic Surgery Clinic, this federation of skin-health aficionados provides a variety of services to the Denver area. With today's Groupon worn as a sun visor, you'll receive a comprehensive face placation over the course of one hour. First, a member of the skilled staff evaluates your skin type to determine how best to tailor the treatment to the individual needs of each exterior. This analysis is followed by a facial cleansing and the Diamond Tome microderm itself. The treatment works to slough away the face's outermost layer of dead skin cells with the aid of a diamond-chip-tipped wand, which exfoliates to uncover an untapped trove of skin gold. Following the procedure, the aesthetician applies a soothing mask appropriate for your skin type, followed by about 10 minutes of hydrating steam and five minutes of showering you in compliments. Extractions are only taken if determined necessary; after a dollop of moisturizer and skin-smoothing product, you'll be sent home, visage agleam.
Laserwave Clinic harnesses advanced laser technology to combat everything from unwanted tattoos and body hair to nail fungus and yellowed teeth. Technicians target follicles during efficient, 10-to-20-minute laser hair removal sessions that can help permanently reduce unwanted growth. Tattoo-removal treatments begin with a blast from the cryofreezing machine, which numbs areas and makes cold hearts even colder before a laser sweeps in to break up epidermal debris. The team’s lasers also beam across teeth to brighten smiles and heat up nails to hinder unsightly fungus.
At its locations in Loveland and Denver, Tattoo Must Go's expert technicians erase unwelcome ink with a Q-switched laser, which sends nanosecond pulses of intense light to the treatment area. Patients go through a complimentary consultation before treatment begins, determining the number of sessions necessary depending on ink colors, skin tones, and how many Alfs are in the tattoo. During half-hour treatments, the laser breaks down particles of any color while minimally affecting the skin. A Zimmer Cryo 6 Chiller provides additional comfort during the process, keeping the treated area cool. Patients can return for their next treatment in as few as three weeks.
