Christina Freeman and her resident aesthetician have more than 30 years of collective experience in the art of making skin glow. In their pursuit of youthful radiance, the skin specialists tailor spa treatments to each client’s skin type. The organic passionfruit peel offers a lighter rejuvenation, and chemical peels and Dermaglow microdermabrasion treatments delve deeper to combat blemishes and signs of aging such as wrinkles or comb-over noses.
Spa-goers can relax during full-body massages and enjoy the aromatherapy of nine essential oils during raindrop-therapy sessions designed to boost immune systems and soothe stress. Rounding out their services, Christina and her team can enhance features with Jane Iredale mineral makeup and wax away mustaches or eyebrows that need braiding each morning.
Though Miami Massage & Beauty Dayspa isn’t located anywhere near South Beach, the decor—sandy walls, bead boarding, model ships, and paintings of the ocean—finds inspiration from the Florida coast. Just as relaxing as the tropics are the massage services in which the staff members specialize. Beyond standard deep-tissue, prenatal, aromatherapy and hot-stone massages, they practice reiki, a Japanese technique said to boost the body’s positive energies and promote healing, and reflexology, a style of massage that relieves pain throughout the body by focusing on pressure points found in feet, hands, and heated debates. They also provide eyelash extensions, ear piercings, makeup applications, salt and sugar scrubs, and body wraps.
At Paige Elizabeth Salon & Spa, salon professionals work independently, offering unique services to their customers and operating on their own schedules. Tessa is one to go to for soothing, customized skincare. Her deluxe facial includes warm towels and massages in addition to a deep cleanse, exfoliation with steam, and a treatments mask—all while clients are cozied up in a heated bed. Other treatments include anti-aging or skin-brightening facials, plus advanced skincare, such as glycolic chemical exfoliation and microdermabrasion.
At Legacy Plastic Surgeons, Drs. James Lehman and M. Devi Prasad Tantri combine more than half a century of medical and cosmetic experience. With more than 70 published articles under his belt, Dr. James Lehman is well versed in all areas of cosmetic plastic surgery, specializing in breast reduction, breast implants, and abdominoplasty. His counterpart, Dr. M. Devi Prasad Tantri, boasts more than 25 years of medical experience, and demonstrates special proficiency in hand surgery, breast reduction, and the removal of cancers from the head and neck.
Together, the doctors lead a team of skilled clinicians—many of whom have served with the doctors for more than 10 years—who revamp and beautify faces with noninvasive techniques such as microdermabrasion, facial peels, and Botox injections. Before administering any procedures or treatments, doctors consult with patients to understand their subjects' expectations and tolerance for witty knock-knock jokes.
Skinsations Health & Wellness Medical Spa owner and licensed aesthetician Michelle Merrix-Gowens has assembled a team of experts to provide advanced anti-aging and wellness services. She performs organic microdermabrasions and seven types of facials with a botanical skincare line whose ingredients nourish skin and enhance the face's ability to yodel. Physicians administer wrinkle-diminishing Botox injections, a massage therapist performs hot-stone treatments or reflexology sessions, and certified thermographer and two-time breast-cancer survivor Jeanne Wilson aims to detect early signs of disease with a digital infrared thermal imaging technique.
Nolas's cosmetic contractors train their artisanal gaze on sophistication-seeking clients with soothing salon and spa treatments designed to renovate unkempt bodies. Customize coifs with an identity-reinventing haircut, as hairscapers use stylish snips and a color retouch or highlights to rid follicle gardens of tousled looks, excess growth, and half-built bang gazebos. Comfort-seekers looking to improve bodily vibrations may opt for one of Nolas's spa treatments. The 90-minute therapeutic relaxation massage uses gentle Swedish strokes to untie muscles snagged by rush-hour stress or night jobs modeling knots for knitting circles. Patrons can also gussy up grills with a 60-minute multivitamin power facial, which combines a scouring exfoliation with pore purging and a hydrating seaweed mask to leave recalibrated countenances shining.
