Genesis MedSpa moving to Gold Hill Mesa

Genesis MedSpa is making a move from its Cheyenne Mountain Boulevard location to the community center inside the Gold Hill Mesa mixed use development, southeast of  Highway 24 and 21st Street.

In August, the spa plans to move into a 4,000-square-foot space on the second floor of the community center, a space double the size of its current location.

The building, known as The Exchange, is situated in the heart of Gold Hill Mesa’s single-family and town homes. The building also will include a fitness and wellness center.

Genesis MedSpa specializes in Botox and other injectables like Juvederm and skin and hair laser treatments. Its revenue has increased 27 percent so far this year, and it had a 26 percent increase from 2010 to 2011, Regional Marketing Director Michelle Pribble said.

“Those growth numbers are huge for us,” she said.

The growth also has meant the 11-member staff and growing clientele is cramped in the current shop, in the Country Club Corners shopping center.

“We turned our consult room into a treatment room and we had to move equipment around,” she said.

The new office in The Exchange is being remodeled to fit their needs, Pribble said. The makeup room will allow six clients, instead of one at a time. There will be seven treatment rooms instead of four. And, there is room for the spa’s newest equipment — ultra sound technology and eMatrix, a radiofrequency and deep infrared heat technology for skin care, she said.

Dr. Lisa Jenks, owner and Genesis medical director, opened the spa in August 2007 with one receptionist and four treatment rooms.

Jenks formerly worked as an emergency room doctor. After the birth of her third child she opted to stay home and occasionally volunteer at a medical clinic that treated the poor. Seven years ago she started taking classes and workshops in the field of aesthetic medicine.

Today, the Genesis MedSpa has three doctors on staff.

Its clients are mostly women but men make up about 12 percent of those seeking such services as Botox injections and laser therapy.

“I think when I first opened Genesis I expressed to the staff that I wanted an environment where clients felt like family,” Jenks said.

That philosophy had boded well, she said. Even during the economic downturn, business kept growing.

“There are still times when I am scared about moving to this new space,” Jenks said. “But, then I take a deep breath and say, it’s time to grow – we’re at the right point.”
