Body Minute's focus on catering to women with busy lifestyles propelled its skin-care methods into more than 350 beauty centers across Europe—and then, across the pond. Whether requesting individual services or a monthly subscription, each of Body Minute's clients receives the convenience of quick treatments without the need for an appointment.
Basic facials with steam and extractions cleanse specific skin types, while facial patches reinvigorate the skin with algae or olive-tree extracts. Alternatively, aestheticians pamper the whole body with services such as a relaxing Japanese massage and a Hormeta scrub exfoliation, which lets clients feel the smoothing effects of volcanic rock without having to roll down the slope of Krakatoa. To help clients achieve the results of their treatments at home, Body Minute carries its own line of paraben-free, Swiss-made beauty products.
Spa owner and director Silva Haroutunian is all about skincare. Her establishment Silvianas Salon & Spa is known for its facials – all of which are done by Silva herself. She is meticulous about her technique and the customer experience she offers, and her facials, peels, collagen treatments and microdermabrasion services have been cited as some of Miami’s best spa services for years. The spa has two small, all-white, contemporary service rooms, making for very intimate surroundings. In addition to face treatments, Silviana’s offers waxing, massage therapy, hand and foot treatments and manicures and pedicures, while providing a line of at-home products that have been thoroughly tested and recommended by – who else – Silva Haroutunian herself.
Located in the heart of Coconut Grove right near the Cocowalk shops, Salon and Spa Renova is a full-service spa and salon space that offers a free consultation for all color and color-correction treatments. It only uses the latest technology and the highest quality Remi hair for its hair extensions, and offers wig and hairpiece services and styling. The on-site full-service spa includes an array of services, from waxing, massage, spray tanning and ear candling to body scrubs and polishes. The soothing, light-filled space makes for a perfect pre-wedding destination as well, with groups of six to twelve women frequently renting out Renova to coordinate their looks, get manicures and pedicures and enjoy the feeling of being pampered – all before the big day.
Led by a team of board-certified plastic surgeons, PREMIERE Center for Cosmetic Surgery helps clients to combat encroaching signs of aging and restore self-confidence with surgical and nonsurgical aesthetic treatments. Precise injections ease wrinkles or restore volume in the skin, making faces less crinkly and easier to lay flat on the Xerox machine. Complexions are further enhanced by services including peels, microdermabrasion, and medical-grade facials. Patients looking for more intensive transformations can consult with the surgeons, whose skilled hands perform lifts, tucks, and reconstructive procedures.
Established in 1984, South Florida Dermatology keeps skin looking healthy and youthful by treating a wide range of conditions, including acne, rosacea, and psoriasis. Its board certified dermatologists also provide cosmetic services, from Botox and chemical peels to laser hair removal and Fraxel skin resurfacing. And much like parrots that work as government spies, the physicians can speak four different languages: English, Spanish, French, and Portuguese.
