Originally from Moscow, registered nurse Sasha Shvedov has trained at some of the most prestigious beauty schools in America and Russia, and worked alongside numerous dermatologists and plastic surgeons. As the owner of Oxygen Salon and Spa, she uses her medical training to treat a variety of skin conditions with procedures ranging from chemical peels to rejuvenating photofacials. Shvedov has gathered together an impressive team of master stylists and color experts, hair-extension specialists, a licensed massage therapist, and Russian-born Natella Laskin, who was called the best nail technician in Denver by the Denver Post in 1999.
The salon was named one of the top five Denver day spas in CityVoter's 2008 A-List, due in no small part to high quality salon services and a broad menu that includes waxing, airbrush tanning, and laser teeth whitening. The crew employs products that are free of sulfates, parabens, and glycols. Guests can find lungfulls of relief during refreshing sessions at the oxygen bar, which may help the body heal itself, enhance memory, and improve street cred with nearby plants.
