Why Choose AVIVA WO/MAN?

We believe you don’t need to steal someone else’s signature look or force yourself into someone else’s beauty box in order to become an iconic legend.

You simply need permission to live beautifully on your own terms, and discovering how to do it starts with The AVIVA WAY.

Our everyday essentials

If we’re carrying a beauty bag, it’s always going to include these simple basics

Kindness, first

No matter what you believe or where you’ve been, there’s always a place for you at AVIVA. Your story and your journey matter to us, so we lead with kindness and compassion first – never diminishing how you feel or what you’re experiencing.

Curiosity, always

We’re relentless question-askers and obsessive listeners. Every client who comes through our doors is unique – their biological makeup, their lived experiences, and their long-term goals – so we don’t blindly follow textbook answers or prescribe one-size-fits-all treatments.

Chin, up

Our grandmas taught us that if you’re showing up as your best self, then no matter what happens, you can always be proud of the person you’ve become. It’s why our mission is to help you feel better so you can live better – because it’s hard to keep your chin up when nothing feels normal.

Our team

Sure, we’ve won awards that make us cheek-blushing proud.

We’ve spent hours and days and years teaching and learning about all the women’s health issues no one wants to say out loud (like low libido, vaginal dryness, and all the things that happen to a woman’s body after she gives birth).

Our master estheticians have been trained by the most innovative and most trusted leaders in dermatology and aesthetics, and our fully licensed practitioners have spent decades in the medical field.

But if you really want to know what has made AVIVA WO/MAN one of Utah’s most premier medspas, you’ve got to look beyond our credentials.

In 2017, we opened our doors with a fire in our bellies. We set out to create a space where women could finally feel like they were being seen and heard – and we did just that.

Today, when you join us, you’ll meet the best of science, medicine, and relationships. Even more, you’ll be empowered to show up as the best version of YOU so you can spark your own beauty revolution.
