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.
