RN, CLO-A, Aesthetics Nurse
Donlyn Holland has been a registered nurse for more than 30 years. Her passion has always been commitment to excellence and delivering exceptional results. Her interest in the aesthetics field began a few years ago, when she noticed her skin starting to change. As she started researching treatment options, the technology shaped her vision for the SPA—a medically-focused skin care center offering patients non-surgical options with results-oriented treatments. In addition to managing the spa's day to day operations, Donlyn treats all clients who are interested in injectables, skin resurfacing, and light therapies.

Christine Montoya, Permanent Makeup
Christine Montoya is a licensed esthetician with one goal—to make the client experience exceptional resulting in beauty through simplicity. After a twenty year corporate career, Christine left the office to pursue her passions. She fell in love with the esthetics industry when she saw how minimal, yet effective, treatments can change how someone looks. More so, how it makes them feel. Narrowing in on what the industry had to offer and keeping her goal in mind, she found permanent cosmetics. Seeing how a brow can be shaped and customized to bring out a youthful appearance, or how an eyelash enhancement can open an eye giving the look of fuller lashes, this was the true definition of beauty through simplicity. She holds multiple certifications in permanent makeup and microblading from the top permanent makeup professionals. Christine is a highly sought after Colorado permanent makeup artist with over 500+ brows completed.
