Inside Finishing Touch's Caribbean-themed spa and salon, sea murals moisturize the walls and relaxing treatments energize debilitated bodies. Strip away unwanted hair with three laser hair-removal treatments using the Lumenis Light Sheer Laser, a high-powered diode laser equipped with a cooling sapphire tip, pinpoint accuracy, and an honorary doctorate in mad science. A complimentary consultation evaluates skin type, degree of sun exposure, and probable results before the process begins. During the relatively discomfort-free appointment, which lasts approximately 15–30 minutes, the diode laser disintegrates the follicle, causing it to reconsider its life’s work and abandon hair production forever. Patients should avoid tanning, exfoliating, and fiddling with the area to be treated, but the spa urges them to shave prior to getting laser blasted. Eight to 10 treatments may be required for optimal results.
The loyal staffers at FT Boulder—many of whom have been at the salon-spa since its inception 30 years ago—beautify bodies in a soothing, tropical-theme atmosphere. On the salon floor, a consultation kicks off hair appointments before nationally certified Redken stylists shampoo strands, lop off locks, and then style them with a blow dryer or a ride in a convertible. In the spa's private treatment rooms, FT helps guests to leave the concrete world outside and escape to relaxing oasis as they prep for anti-aging facial treatments, mud wraps, body waxing, or massage-therapy services. Before treatments, guests are encouraged to sip complimentary beverages while guessing which of the spa’s ubiquitous plants have recently been shampooed.
