Pam and John
About Us

Our Story

The story starts with one woman, and one man, and the birth of a business that was going to change the aesthetic landscape in Colorado forever. For both, their first love was the OR, but then they found each other. They got married and devised a business plan to start the first medical spa in Colorado.

For over 25 years, they’ve always surrounded themselves with good people who get it, which are the people who make up our staff today. We’re proud of our team and our three locations: Denver, Superior, Golden and Greenwood Village. We love what we do and it makes us happy to create happiness for our patients.

Come meet our team. Our consultations are complimentary. Our Patient Care Coordinators would be happy to assist you in scheduling your first appointment with us. Pairing you with your new friend in skin care or body sculpting is what they do best.

Meet Pamela


  • She’s a key thought leader in aesthetics nationally and internationally.
  • She’s a learner, an adapter and an inventor.
  • She’s an accomplished educator to those who choose to make skin care their profession.
  • She’s a professional who cheerleads her staff and shares her talents.
  • She’s a three-time melanoma survivor.
  • She’s a loving mother, grandmother, and a cherished friend.

The Background Check

Let’s take you back. These premier med spas weren’t built in a day. Pamela started her career as an OR nurse in the open-heart cardiac unit. She then transitioned into a well-established and practiced nurse in plastic and reconstructive surgery, which led her to meet Dr. Grossman and open Facial Aesthetics in 1992. A cutting edge preventative med spa and skin care clinic, Facial Aesthetics was, and remains to this day, at the forefront in providing, promoting, and educating its patients of the avant-garde products and services. Due to her results-oriented leadership style and proven track record for building and growing companies in the medical skin care sector, Facial Aesthetics has grown into a multiple location operation with a highly regarded reputation among patients and industry leaders alike.

Pamela is an accomplished author, and an in demand educator that provides guidance to the future of the aesthetic profession. Recognizing the opportunity to fulfill an educational demand among spa owners, students, educators and product manufacturers, Pamela’s passion for better skin care inspired her to partner with Thomson Corporation (formerly Milady) to create the Milady’s Aesthetician Series, a 13-book compendium dedicated to the education and professional growth of medical estheticians. It is widely considered to be a “must have” resource for on-the-job success, and covers subjects ranging from laser, dermal filler and permanent makeup techniques to skin diseases and treatments, drug side effects and medical spa practice management. The PH Institute conducts trainings, seminars and other learning opportunities for professionals wanting to optimize their aesthetic offerings.

There’s nothing selfish about Pamela Hill-Grossman. She not only shares her passion for skin care through her medical spa model, but she also does it through the Pamela Hill Institute (PH institute) that she founded in 2003.

For the Love of Your Skin

For two decades Pamela listened to patients sit in her chair and explain what they wanted in skin care products. She couldn’t sit there and do nothing. So she didn’t. Pamela spent years searching for a way to repair and protect skin more effectively than other products on the market. In 2000, she launched her first skin care line called Pamela Hill Skin Care. Creating that product line from the ground up further developed Pamela’s product knowledge on a molecular level and inspired her to improve her own product line. This inspired the transformation of the Pamela Hill Skin Care line into the reformulated and rebranded Pamela Metamorphosis skin care line. All products are clinically guided with meticulous oversight by Pamela, so you can choose Pamela Metamorphosis with confidence. They are available both in clinic and online.

Living in the Mile High City feeds her inspiration and drive to help her patients protect themselves and repair damage caused by exposure to the relentless Colorado sun.

The Background Check

Have one conversation with this pioneer of plastic surgery, Dr. John A. Grossman, and we promise you won’t leave the conversation without having learned something. And that’s speaking generally. Talk to him about anything remotely related to aesthetics and you’ll feel as though you’d like to become a plastic surgeon yourself. His passion is contagious. His knowledge is overwhelming. His patient care is admirable, and his results, well…they speak for themselves. We’re elated that we’ve had his medical direction for the past 25+ years. Dr. Grossman’s precision training in combination with our founder, Pamela Hill-Grossman, RN, CANS ensures that each patient at Facial Aesthetics receives the highest quality treatment using the latest advancements in aesthetic technology. Our clinicians feel privileged to have the support and oversight of Dr. Grossman in the life changing results they provide to their patients. Our clinics greatly benefit from his guidance, skill and leadership.

Ask our founder, Pamela. Working alongside Dr. Grossman for many years in the OR enabled her to observe his good work and learn about all things aesthetic. Dr. Grossman largely got involved in the med spa model not only because of his knowledge in the space, but more due to Pamela’s interest to join the therapeutic skin care revolution that was about to begin at the time. He supported her vision, and lent her space in the lower level of 310 Steele Street in Denver, CO. Together they built a business, and today it’s known as Facial Aesthetics.

With a true appreciation for art, Dr. Grossman combines his creative mind with his talented hands to produce the perfect harmony between art and science. His impressive patient database includes A-list celebrities, royal families, political officials, and many other public figures all over the globe.

Meet Alysa Paul, the president of Facial Aesthetics, a premier Colorado medical spa with four offices in: Cherry Creek, Golden, Greenwood Village and Superior. With over 20 years of experience in medical aesthetics, Alysa is no stranger to the industry, in fact, she grew up in it. Alysa was introduced to aesthetics by her mother, Pamela Grossman, RN, CANS – a nationally recognized aesthetics educator, med spa mogul, and Facial Aesthetics founder.

The Background Check

After a few years at Facial Aesthetics, Alysa experienced a short departure when she attended the Institute of Advanced Medical Aesthetics in Virginia to earn her aesthetician license. Among Alysa’s greatest strengths as a leader is her experience in many roles over the years – from Front Desk, Aesthetician, Controller, Aesthetics Trainer, COO, and others in between, Alysa assumed every role in the business at some point in her career. She studied each one and how they impacted the business. This created understanding, compassion, and knowledge for every role – a unique vantage point that she attributes much of her success to today.


Driven by her vision to partner with patients to create the best version of themselves, Alysa is deeply committed to staying at the forefront of the latest developments in the industry, and she continually invests in the best technologies and training for her staff, leveraging the brilliance and experience of Pamela Grossman and world-renowned plastic surgeon and Facial Aesthetics Medical Spa Director, Dr. John A. Grossman.

Alysa prides herself on communication, connectivity, and culture. Under her leadership, Facial Aesthetics med spas have become best known for their knowledgeable staff, clean and luxurious offices, personalized treatments, and exceptional patient care. She has further strengthened the sterling reputation that many have come to know and expect from Facial Aesthetics.

Away from Facial Aesthetics, Alysa enjoys spending time with her family, chauffeuring her boys to their many activities, being the cheerleader at their sporting events, traveling, reading books and snuggling with her fur babies.
