Reveal Healthy Skin Spa's licensed aestheticians believe that natural, toxin-free treatments are the key to beautiful skin. The skilled skincare specialists favor local Colorado products that are free of preservatives, harsh ingredients, and dark magic. They put these products to work when performing an array of beauty services, from rejuvenating custom facials to exfoliating chemical peels. Similarly, when administering airbrush tans, the technicians use an earth-friendly sunless spray free of gluten and paraben. The versatile specialists also extend their expertise to facial and body-waxing services for women, as well as makeup applications.
Donna Lapetina, owner and head aesthetician at Skin Solutions Medical Spa, has spent the last decade caring for aging skin—including her own. Donna and her team work their age-defying magic under the direction of board-certified dermatologist Dr. Sheila Boyle, whose career includes time as a flight surgeon, a lieutenant commander in the military, and a volunteer speaker on skin cancer. The staff’s specialty services include microdermabrasion, peels, and facials, as well as intensive acne treatments. Dr. Boyle performs all Botox and dermal-filler procedures herself to safely keep crow’s-feet, frown lines, and worry lines at bay. Clients receive their treatments in private, earth-toned rooms that mix the serenity of a spa with the professionalism of a medical office.
Rather than buying leftover potions from local sorcerers, Skin Solutions Medical Spa has developed its own line of products, including cleansers, eye creams, and an exfoliating scrub. The gentle solutions are formulated with ingredients such as green-tea extract, oil of calendula, and cranberry extract.
The skincare professionals at Sugar Spot know you love your skin, so they cover it in curative botanical mud. During the Moor mud wrap, they smother the body in 100% organic peet-bog mud to remove toxins, tighten the skin, and treat back acne. The staff uses ingredients such as mineral salt to smooth rough areas and lactic acid to soften fine lines. They correct sun spots with a brightening agent, and at the end of conditioning treatments, they apply masks to restore moisture and protect skin from irritants and wild cream pies. They also slough away dead skin cells with chemical peels, which leave a clean surface for glo minerals makeup.

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.
