What is an Elevate Facial?


Detoxifies | Safe for sensitive skin | Maintains healthy pH

The Elevate Facial exfoliates to remove dead cells, opens clogged pores, smoothes your skin surface and renews your skin. The treatment generates an exfoliative process that increases cellular activity for uniform resurfacing, with no trauma, or post-treatment redness. Your skin looks fresh and glowing.

Ultrasound Infusion

Reduces redness |Replenishes nutrients| Encourages new cell production

Ultrasound waves significantly increase the infusion of antioxidants and nutrients through the skin, resulting in optimal skin nourishment and cellular activity. The ultrasound also increases blood circulation that brings more oxygen and nutrients to the skin, improves moisture retention, tightens enlarged pores, and relieves puffiness around the eyes. The treatment is painless, soothing, and safe for all skin types.

Fire and Ice Facial

Fire + Ice Facial:

The Fire + Ice Facial combines the best of both worlds: the detoxifying impact of a heated treatment with the rejuvenating and firming benefits of a cooling treatment. It is a multi-step facial that exfoliates and nourishes your skin for a smooth and refreshed complexion.

This one-hour facial begins with a double cleanse, followed by an exfoliating salicylic acid peel under steam, which acts as the fire element…creating stimulating warmth across your face. Then, you will be indulged with applying a botanical firming masque (containing essential oils and fruit extracts) massaged into your skin with Ice Globes. This cools your skin while hydrating, depuffing, and firming. Your result will be bright and glowing skin!

What will the peel procedure be like?

  • Soothes
  • Hydrates and firms
  • Evens skin tone and texture
  • Minimizes pore size
  • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
  • Rejuvenates skin

How often should I have a Fire + Ice Facial?

This can be done before a special event or weekend to decrease puffiness or add an extra glow to your skin.  And because it increases circulation, soothes, and exfoliates, it improves the health of your skin and can be done as frequently as once a month.

Prep + Post Treatment:

In order to ensure the best possible results, we recommend avoiding waxing or laser treatments for approximately 48 hours prior to receiving your facial treatment. Additionally, we advise clients to avoid using products with Vitamin A, Glycolic acid, Retinol, as well as any additional ingredients that are used for resurfacing purposes, at least three days before your scheduled treatment.

Some may experience a temporary flushed-rosy look immediately after their facial treatment, but that is completely normal and to be expected with most treatments. Your facial treatment will last around 60 minutes, and you will be able to see and feel results instantly! You can expect to walk out with a brighter and more refined complexion than when you walked in.

Anti-Aging Facial:

Our 60 minute Anti Aging Facial is a purely decadent, skin-enriching experience. This is a relaxing and therapeutic facial that will awaken your skin for a youthful and luminous glow! 

What is involved with the Anti Aging Facial?

Your experience will begin with a botanical deep cleanse, followed by an enzyme masque with pumpkin and papaya that work in tandem with glycolic acid to gently slough off dead skin cells stimulating new skin tissue and collagen. While the masque is curing you will have a lymphatic facial massage to increase circulation. Then pore extractions, an antioxidant masque, serums, and an enriching peptide moisturizer. The result is a hydrated, youthful and healthy glow to your skin!

The Benefits of our Anti-Aging Facial:

  • Enriches your Skin with Antioxidants
  • Exfoliates Dead Skin Cells
  • Hydrates and firms
  • Minimizes pore size
  • Rejuvenates skin

How often should I have an Anti-Aging Facial?

Help with Acne and Rosacea in Boulder CO

Acne Facials:

These facials are tailored just for you and your acne treatment needs. We use a combination of different treatment modalities that may include deep cleansing, chemical or mechanical exfoliants, extractions, and mask applications. Although these facials are not necessarily a solo treatment for acne, they can be a great addition to your regular acne medications to help you get faster results and clearer skin!


The continuous exposure of the top layer of your skin to UV rays, environmental toxins, and irritants can make your skin appear dull. Dermaplaning is a gentle exfoliation technique using a special sterile blade to remove the top layer of dead skin cells, debris and vellus hair. This will reveal new skin cells, leaving your skin smooth and glowing!

A dermaplane exfoliation can be added to any facial! 

It can also be followed by a light depth chemical peel to enhance the resurfacing and pigment lightening benefits of dermaplane alone.

Facial peels are a way to treat all kinds of skin issues like acne, fine lines and wrinkles, brown spots, larger pores and uneven skin pigmentation (like melasma or sun damage). Peels can also make skin care products and your skin work better by helping them penetrate into the skin. The best part is that they are safe and can be customized for you!

What will the peel procedure be like?

For light peels, the treatments will take about 20 minutes. You skin will be cleansed with a cleanser, alcohol and maybe even acetone. This is to remove any oils that are on your skin so that the acid applied will be able to penetrate. Vaseline or a similar barrier ointment is applied to sensitive areas like around your eyes, nose and lips. Then the peel solution is applied in even strokes, usually starting with your forehead. There is a little stinging and sometimes mild itching. You will likely be given a small fan to hold for comfort. After the determined amount of time (depending on the solution and depth of peel desired), the acid is neutralized (if an alpha-hydroxy or combination solution) or simply washed off with water. Lastly, a soothing, hydrating moisturizer will be applied and a zinc based sunscreen.

How often should I have a peel?

This really depends on your skin and what you are looking to get out of the peel. The light and medium peels are typically done in a series (3-5 treatments) anywhere from 1 to 4 weeks apart. Then maintenance treatments could be done every couple of months or so.

What to Expect after your peel:

For light peels, in the first few days, your skin may feel and look tight. You will likely feel like you have a mild sunburn or windburn immediately after the peel. You will be glowing and your skin will likely be slightly pink and this may last for one to two days. If you do have any peeling or flaking it typically begins on day 2-3 and will last about 2-5 days.

Aftercare Post-Peel: Wash your face with a gentle non-soap cleanser and liberally apply a bland moisturizer after cleansing and throughout the day as needed to prevent dryness and formation of crust (Aquaphor, Vanicream or CeraVe). Do not vigorously rub the skin and or pick at the flaking skin (I know this is hard!) – it can cause scarring. You should avoid swimming in chlorinated pools for a couple of days (because chlorine is so drying), continue to stay off of topical retinoids and most anti-aging products for about a week (check with your provider on specific products), and no waxing during this first week either. Most importantly…Avoid all direct sun exposure for the week following the peel because you have these new fragile cells now exposed on the surface of your skin. You will be more sensitive to sunlight for a month or two after your peel – so daily SPF should be your new routine. Zinc based sunscreens are the best – I love the tinted ones!

Lashes and Brows:

Are you ready to trade in your brow shadow and mascara for a one of our eyelash or brow treatments?

Our professional eyebrow + eyelash services help define and contour your look to add a pop of color that lasts up to four weeks. Let your natural beauty shine and experience the ease of a month of completely makeup-free color!

The bonus of a eyelash lift is that it will make your lashes look longer, thicker and fuller with a nice lifting effect, so that your eyes look amazing. The results will last the natural life cycle of your lashes and doesn’t damage your lashes.
