In the past, people who wanted to lose weight had to either exercise frequently and diet or undergo invasive surgery. But now, the technicians at The Ultimate Health Center offer clients another solution: noninvasive laser liposuction. Unlike exercise, this technology can spot-treat fat on problem areas such as the abdomen, thighs, and back. And unlike traditional liposuction, this treatment requires no anesthesia, stitches, or downtime.
It works by sending cold laser light down to the fat cells in order to create tiny, temporary perforations in the fat cells' membranes. This prompts the cells to release their fatty acids into the body and shrink, resulting in lost inches. The entire process happens while clients recline in a comfortable position and read, listen to music, or nap.
Complementing the laser lipo are services such as whole-body vibration therapy, nutritional counseling, and detox treatments.
Joyce Garcia has dedicated her entire life to learning how human touch and mindful bodywork treatments can contribute to a person’s holistic wellbeing. In addition to formally studying massage therapy and mastering the techniques of Swedish, deep tissue, and prenatal modalities, she's also trained in the practice of Brennan Healing Science—a hands-on therapy intended to restore a sense of physical and emotional stability by addressing energy imbalances. When human touch alone can’t fully address one's underlying health concerns, Joyce turns to modern technological advancements that support her mission of restoring holistic balance. The handheld XP2 device is one such piece of technology, using high-frequency, electro-sound energy to help cleanse the body, regenerate damaged tissues, and promote healthy, unrestricted flow of the lymphatic system.
Although Judy Aker has more than 25 years of nursing experience, it was her time as a Botox client that spurred her career in facial aesthetics. Judy, who received Botox injections for years before she administered them, admits: "I've had the 'mistakes' made on me, including major bruising (multiple times!) and dropped eyebrows (a couple times!). Personally," she adds, "I know how this feels."
Once she obtained certification, Judy combined her attention to detail, medical know-how, and firsthand knowledge to open Refine Aesthetics. Here, she helps reveal clients’ natural beauty with Botox and Juvéderm injections, as well as Latisse treatments.
The Colorado Dermatology Institute helps its patients become comfortable in their own skin with a variety of cosmetic-skincare, dermatologic, and surgical services. Microdermabrasion treatments and chemical peels slough off dead skin cells, and Botox injections smooth wrinkles. Aside from aesthetic treatments, a team of dermatologists treats patients with skin conditions such as acne, rosacea, and eczema. For those suffering from skin cancer, the institute's doctors can surgically remove squamous-cell carcinoma and basal-cell carcinoma.
At Panda Paw Day Spa, a team of aestheticians and massage therapists pampers bodies and minds to promote beauty, relaxation, and wellness. During facials, aestheticians assess the skin’s condition and craft personalized regimens to treat concerns such as acne and fine lines with Dermalogica and Clinical Care products. Knots are undone and pain flows away during custom massages, which may incorporate reflexology, aromatherapy, or soothing hot stones. And to round out the service menu, an experienced nail technician performs luxurious mani-pedis and paraffin treatments that soften hands, feet, and vestigial platypus bills.
