Legend has it Spanish explorer Ponce de León was searching for the Fountain of Youth when he traveled to what is now St. Augustine, Florida in 1513. While historians squabble about the explorer’s true intent and where he actually came ashore, few could argue that Park City is home to the present day Fountain of Youth. These local spas take “aging gracefully” to a new level.

Saltz Spa Vitoria
Plastic surgeon and spa owner Dr. Renato Saltz specializes in bringing the latest FDA-approved procedures to the area. “As President-elect of the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery and past President of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, I am always learning about new technologies being beauty. From intuitive readings and energy offered around the globe and in the United States. I keep a close eye on what has been thoroughly tested and proven to work in the U.S. and other countries, and enjoy bringing that to my patients in Utah,” he said.

One such example is CellfinaTM, a minimally invasive one-time procedure clinically proven to smooth cellulite. Saltz Spa Vitoria is among the first practices in the world to offer this procedure. “Patients tend to associate looking younger with wrinkles or pigmentation on their face. And while we offer a number of treatment options for those concerns, it’s important people don’t overlook the rest of their body. Your thighs and buttocks can leave you feeling just as old as a few deep lines.” CellfinaTM takes about one hour, and the results have been documented to last for at least three years.   For more information visit:

Park City Laser Spa
Lighten, tighten and brighten are the goals at Park City Laser Spa (formerly VIM). Spa owner and master esthetician Bonnie Brown says laser treatments are an ideal way to stall and even reverse the aging process. “Lasers can help even out skin tone, improve texture, lighten pigmentation, reduce wrinkles and help give you a more youthful and fresh look.”

Bonnie’s laser options include hair removal, body contouring, wrinkle and pigmentation reduction and scar treatment. She also offers package deals and a free microdermabrasion with any laser treatment.

Zante Spa
The word “spa” tends to conjure images of massages, facials, and pedicures. But at Zante Spa, those traditional services give way to a more Eastern approach to healing to chakra cleansing, Zante Spa offers a holistic approach to beauty.

“Our approach is very inside-out and outside- in,” explains spa owner Loren Kornreich. “We seek to get to the root cause of any concern.”

Zante also offers cosmetic acupuncture to help create collagen and plump the skin. And, if all this seems a little too “Sedona” for you, don’t worry. Massages, facials and other traditional spa services are also available.
