Are you feeling exhausted? Does your skin seem dull and puffy? Are dark circles taking over your face? As we age, our skin starts to show signs of stress due to factors like lack of sleep, pollution, sun exposure, and diminished collagen production. Luckily, there are many non-invasive medical spa treatments that can help rejuvenate your skin and give you back the glow you desire.

Our Colorado Springs med spa offers treatments to help you look rested and refreshed fast with little-to-no downtime required. While these treatments come with minimal risks and maximum rewards, it is important to take the time to research any technique before committing to it. In this post, we’ll explore 3 types of treatments that can help you look more awake and refreshed than ever before. Let’s dive in! 

1. Injectables 

With just a few expertly placed injections, our board-certified doctors can help you achieve a perkier appearance—no snooze button required! 


Neuromodulators like Botox®, Jeuveau®, Dysport®, and Xeomin® work by temporarily reducing muscle contractions to help make you look more awake and refreshed. Here’s how:

  • Reduce crow’s feet (lines around the eyes) that make you look tired or worn out.
  • Smooth out forehead wrinkles which can make you look more alert and refreshed.
  • Soften frown lines between the eyebrows to create a more relaxed appearance.
  • Lift the brow by relaxing the muscles that pull the brow down for a more open and awake appearance.

By targeting specific areas of the face, our Colorado Springs injectables can help revive your appearance, with results lasting between 3-4 months! 

Dermal fillers

Dermal fillers can address several signs of aging so you can enjoy a more rejuvenated look. Here’s how our expert injectors use filler:

  • Restore facial volume in the cheeks, temples, and under the eyes to treat a tired or sunken appearance. 
  • Smooth wrinkles and fine lines around the mouth, nose, and chin for younger-looking skin.
  • Enhance facial features such as the lips or cheeks by adding volume for a more defined appearance.

RHA fillers are a type of dermal filler made with Resilient Hyaluronic Acid (RHA), a type of hyaluronic acid that is more elastic and flexible than traditional hyaluronic acid. This innovative type of filler offers the same benefits as traditional fillers for static wrinkles, and it can also be used to treat dynamic wrinkles which are caused by facial expressions. RHA fillers have the unique ability to adapt to facial movements—ideal for achieving a more natural look. This flexibility helps avoid the “overdone” or “frozen” appearance that is sometimes associated with other types of fillers.

2. Skin treatments

Our Colorado Springs medical spa has a variety of skin treatments to choose from to accommodate your skin goals. 

Chemical peels

Chemical peels use a chemical solution to slough off the outer layer of dead skin cells. This deep yet gentle exfoliation benefits your appearance by reducing fine lines and wrinkles, brightening your complexion by removing surface discoloration (sun damage or age spots), and stimulating collagen production for increased firmness and elasticity. Boosting collagen and elastin will also help improve the quality of your skin over time. Our PureLee Redefined skin specialists offer Vi Peels®, Alpha Hydroxy Acid peels, and TCA peels.

Laser treatments

The Aerolase Neo Elite® laser can address 36 different aesthetic and medical skin concerns for more complete skin rejuvenation. Safe for all skin types and tones, this laser technology targets the skin’s deeper layers to erase or improve some of the most appearance-dulling concerns—signs of aging, scars, pigmentation irregularities, moles, spider veins, and more! 

Unlike some laser treatments, Aerolase is relatively painless, with no downtime required. This means that you can resume your normal activities immediately after your treatment! Depending on the details of your treatment, results may be immediate or gradually improve over time.

Addressing superficial skin imperfections can boost your skin’s health, appearance, and your confidence!


Facials offer much-deserved pampering to reset your mind and boost your glow. One of our go-to facials for an immediate appearance pick-me-up is a Hydrafacial! Using a wand-like device, Hydrafacial cleanses, extracts, and hydrates the skin. Your treatment can also be customized to target specific skin concerns that are making you appear older and worn out, such as fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, and uneven skin tone. Additionally, Hydrafacial improves circulation to help reduce puffiness and dark circles under the eyes, so you look more alert and awake. 


Dermaplaning uses a thin surgical blade to remove dead skin cells and fine hairs from the skin’s surface. This creates a smooth surface for skincare products to penetrate and enhances the benefits of your facials and other non-surgical treatments

Physician-only skincare products achieve stronger improvements in a shorter time frame because they are formulated with higher levels of active ingredients. Your at-home skincare regimen will extend the benefits of your med spa treatments and help prevent new skin concerns from developing as quickly.

RF microneedling 

Morpheus8 combines traditional microneedling and radiofrequency (RF) energy. Using tiny, hair-like needles, the device creates microchannels in the skin to deliver radiofrequency energy deep into the tissue to improve skin texture, reduce wrinkles, correct pigmentation irregularities, and promote collagen production. 

Morpheus8 in Colorado Springs can also help to tighten and firm sagging or drooping skin for a more defined and sculpted appearance that energizes your look.

3. Infusions

Topical treatments can do wonders for your outward appearance, but what about your inner glow? Our thoughtfully curated IV vitamin infusions provide a range of benefits that revitalize you both inside and out!

Our infusions deliver a customized blend of vitamins and minerals directly into the bloodstream through an intravenous (IV) drip. Here are some examples of how the ingredients in your customized infusion can help you look and feel refreshed:

  • Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that helps improve immune function and reduce inflammation.
  • B vitamins play a crucial role in energy production and can help reduce fatigue and improve mental clarity.
  • Biotin is essential for keratin production and can help promote healthy skin, prevent dryness and itching, and improve the strength and thickness of hair and nails. 
  • Amino acids help build and repair tissues and support the immune system. They also help produce collagen and elastin for healthier-looking nails, hair, and skin. 
  • Zinc helps immune function, reduces inflammation, and supports healthy skin.
