Alpenglow: Aspen Facials

BY Etta Meyer | October 23, 2017 | Feature Features

Windburn from the Big Burn, Colorado sunshine amplified by fields of reflective snow and that night-cap tequila at the Caribou Club—what mischief do these elements have in common? They each wreak havoc on skin. Find solutions here.
Double down on skin nourishment with a Vida Medi Spa hydrafacial, combining microdermabrasion and serums.

Remède Spa at The St. Regis Aspen
Ask about: Hydra-Repair capsules, aka liquid gold
The customized Kombucha facial uses a 100 percent natural, 70 percent organic product line filled with plant-based superfoods and kombucha, infusing your skin with antioxidants and friendly bacteria, followed by a Hydra-Repair capsule treatment. 60 minutes for $210, 315 E. Dean St., 970.920.3300,

O2 Aspen
Expect: A healing experience
After a cleanse and customized resurfacing via products by Luzern (made with glacial Alps water, cold-pressed in small batches), the face is infused with skin-firming peptides and—what else?—pure O2. 60 minutes for $165, 500 W. Main St., 970.925.4002,

European Skin Treatments
Expect: An intimate space, immediate results
The practitioners at this boutique office were trained in Europe and have brought their prestigious protocols to Aspen. They use a super exfoliator called P50 lotion in every facial, which produces immediate results. Good for acne-prone skin, it disinfects, shrinks pores and lightens skin. Très magnifique. $195, 411 E. Main St., Ste. 206-3, 970.948.1673,

Aspen Vida Medi Spa
Ask about: Microneedling and growth factor serum
The hydrafacial machine, new to this spa’s deep arsenal of beauty tech, functions a bit like a microdermabrasion while infusing serums into the skin. This office offers many nonsurgical skin solutions such as Botox and dermal fillers, and with an expansion in late 2017, now offers 2,500 square feet of wellness one-stop shopping. 30 minutes for $310, 420 W. Main St., Ste. 102, 970.429.8350,
