Certified laser specialist Pamela Archer is a staunch believer in the manifold power of lasers, employing their beams to rid bodies of hair, spider veins, wrinkles, and fungus at BARELaser clinic. Her arsenal of Quanta lasers covers a wide range of wavelengths to address the needs of patients of all skin types and ham-radio-station preferences. The center's resident aesthetician conquers issues unreachable by lasers through skin-smoothing injections of Botox or dermal fillers.
Chic Bronzing's owner Marisa has custom-crafted countless bronze glows during five years as a spray tan technician. She performs each and every one of the salon's tanning treatments. Using a custom-blended formula that's jam-packed with DHA and moisturizers, she uses her expertise as well as client input to create a natural-looking, long-lasting tan. Clients looking for a summer glow can stop in one of two locations.
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.
Vida Salon, an Aveda concept salon, decks out clients with a multitude of flower- and plant-based professional products crafted to high environmental standards. Experienced stylists can advise style seekers on the coiffure cleansers and body buffers that best fit their hair types and shower-curtain color. Shampure shampoo and conditioner ($10.50 each)—suited to all hair types—each harness coriander, eucalyptus oil, and lavender oil to miniature chariots to chase grime off every strand. The styling formula Be Curly Curl Enhancer shapes frizz-free curls out of damp hair using aloe and marshmallow root ($19). Or soothe skin with unguents such as the vitamin-rich Hand Relief ($20), which renders the paws as smooth as a freshly waxed pickup artist.
Laser Beauty Works' certified laser specialists and licensed aestheticians boost each client's natural beauty with technologically enhanced skin therapies and cosmetic medical treatments. Patients relax in the comfort of a private treatment room as experienced techs use a Cutera laser system to zap hair follicles all over the body, and a built-in cooling tip keeps skin safe from the heat. The spa's aestheticians revive dull or mature faces with the infrared-light energy of a radiance-restoring Titan laser, which delivers infrared heat deep into skin to even tone and renew skin's natural glow. During dermaplaning sessions, a highly experienced aesthetician deeply exfoliates skin with a sterile surgical blade, sloughing off dry, dull skin to leave complexions sleeker than a naked mole rat zipping down a slip 'n' slide greased with canola oil.
At Darcy’s Beauty Solutions, Darcy, a medical aesthetician, combats wrinkles with an array of antiaging injectables: Botox, Juvederm, Perlane, and Dysport. However, she is more than a medical aesthetician—she is also a certified laser technician who can rejuvenate faces with fractional laser skin resurfacing. During the treatment, the laser’s beams shatter into microbeams, which noninvasively alleviate burn scars and shrink large pores. To round out her selection, Darcy stocks a variety of skincare products, which range from oil-free makeup remover to a pH-balanced glycolic mud cleanser.
Long before they were both paramedical aestheticians, Connie and Desire’e were mother and daughter. These days, they make a natural team at the head of Samaeo Skin Spa, which is named after the Apache word for "beautiful." With the goal of drawing out the natural allure of each client, they perform a repertoire of both traditional and high-tech skin therapies. Pulsed light noninvasively stifles hair follicles during laser hair-removal treatments, and a Hydro Wand delivers nutrients and vitamins to complexions that have not recently been swabbed with a boiled grapefruit peel. For at-home care, clients can purchase an array of skincare products that compensate for Colorado's blustery, elevated atmosphere.
