start the new year with “new skin”

This time of year has many of us thinking about how we can improve our efficiency, our weight, our priorities, and our overall appearance. So as you consider what you’d like to improve in 2017 consider skin renewal peels if enhancing the appearance of your face is something you’d like to explore. And, just between you and me, of all the ways to improve your appearance, this is probably one of the fastest to show results and one of least expensive options.

What is a Skin Renewal Peel?
Peels remove damaged skin to smooth fine lines, scaring, lighten sunspots, refine pores, reduce acne and smooth and even skin tone. Removing the upper skin layer exposes newer layer of skin that is less wrinkled, has lighter spots, and is clearer than the old skin that was removed.

Peels also stimulate collagen production which is responsible for smoothing fine lines and wrinkles and makes it resilient, strong and elastic. By the way, staying hydrated is a great way to boost collagen also so drink, drink, drink that water.

Peels can be used in areas that are not improved by a facelift. For example around the eye and mouth.

The kind of peel treatment is based on your skin type and degree of skin damage.

Peel Promotion—Spavia Skin Renewal Peels
Not all Peels are alike so while we’re on the subject, I want to share the details of our peel treatments:

essential glow and go refresher
This very light-Vitamin C Enzyme peel is used to brighten, smooth, soften and refresh dull skin. Removes dry dead skin cells on the surface. Vitamin C is a natural anti-oxidant used to firm and improve appearance of skin.

Wrinkle Lift
Indicated for photo damage, fine lines and wrinkles, brightening, smoothing rough textures, and acne.

Acne Peel
Helps control acne, by keeping pores clean, prevents acne and reduces scarring. Can also help smooth texture and can improve fine lines.

Lightening Lift
Reduces fine lines and wrinkles, improves acne and oily prone skin, smoothes texture, helps reduce hyperpigmentation, and can also help restore skins PH to help improve absorption of moisturizers.

What to Expect
Skin will be tender to the touch, red or pink, and could possible swell slightly after treatment. For best results several treatments spread a couple of weeks apart is recommended.

At spavia, a 5-minute patch test is required at least 24 hours prior to a first time peel.

If you think you might want to try skin renewal peels, now is a great time. When you purchase five peels in January 2017, you’ll get your 6th peel free. Call the spa with any questions or concerns you might have and our guest advisors will be happy to help you decide what’s right for you.

Happy New Year from all of us a Spavia Boulder.

until next time … relax. escape. thrive.


I spent my entire career filling my bank account. Now it’s time to fill my heart.

Enough! It’s a powerful word that can take on many meanings, all of which lead to CHANGE. After a lifetime of “Enoughs” I’ve learned to embrace, and even seek out, change because that’s how we GROW.

Before I opened Spavia in Boulder I had a very successful career dominated primarily by men. Because I was driven to provide enough for my family and because what was enough career satisfaction for others wasn’t usually enough for me, I spent my former career filling my bank account. Making sure I’d have enough for my retirement to be comfortable.

When I’d finally had enough of the corporate ladder I was mysteriously moved to contact the Spavia franchise and open a spa in Boulder, CO, although I had absolutely NO experience in the spa industry. I was very clear about a few things, however, and that’s why I decided to take the leap of faith that has turned into a fulfilling new career in wellness for me:

  1. I wanted to help women. Whether it be team members learning how to be leaders and community contributors or spa guests learning how to de-stress and be well in their minds and bodies. (What better way than getting into the spa business and treating women to massage in Boulder to help get me on my way to fulfilling that goal, huh?)
  1. I wanted to give back. Feeling that I have enough opens me up to opportunities to contribute in ways that fill me with joy and gratitude. I’m finding ways to use my Boulder day spa to help in many fulfilling ways and will continue to make this a focus for the spa moving forward.
  1. I wanted to appreciate what I have and where I live. The struggle for enough can often muddy our perceptions and we forget just how fortunate we really are to have what we have and be living and working in such a beautiful place like Boulder.
  1. I wanted to focus on something other than money. I can focus on filling my heart by helping other women and giving back to the community I love.

Today I am filling my heart…on purpose.

As you go out into the world today, ask yourself just one quick question: “Am I fulfilled enough?”

Sure you can ask, “Do I have enough money?” but remember, we only have a finite amount of time and when it’s done you’ll want to know that you enjoyed enough, you gave enough, you did enough, you loved enough, you were enough … just as much as you made enough money.

I’m here to help women…help them be well and balanced, help to be leaders in Boulder and beyond and, hopefully, to help them on their own journey to fill their heart.

How’s that for a retirement plan?

You go girls! Until next time…relax. escape. thrive.
