In-set blue floor lights greet guests as they stroll into mySpa, an upscale respite tucked within the InterContinental Miami Hotel. Though the spa’s modern décor is striking, the warm, friendly demeanor of the staff quickly makes clients feel at home as they walk back to one of the spa’s 10 treatment rooms. Within the calming spaces, aestheticians customize facials with Intraceuticals Oxygen Infusion treatments designed to stimulate cell renewal by releasing a cool mist of oxygen over the skin, and rejuvenate bodies with scrubs and wraps that incorporate European bathing techniques. Candle lit hallways also lead clients to various nooks around the spa where they can find a SpaJet2 hydro capsule, nail salon with two pedicure thrones, and fully-stocked locker rooms with drench showers and eucalyptus steam rooms.
The spacious retreat also provides guests with free weights and a Technogym cardio theater in the fitness center, as well as a spa boutique filled with beauty accessories and clothing. And if clients just want a moment to relax, separate men and women’s lounges cater to them by providing a quiet space with healthy drinks and snacks.
Led by Gabriel Salloum, MD, Miami Center for Plastic Surgery offers surgical and nonsurgical procedures designed to help patients meet their aesthetic goals. The Aesthetic Gallery serves as the center's surgery-free wing, where aestheticians beautify figures and faces in a swanky spa setting. Minimally and noninvasive services, such as Botox, laser hair removal, and chemical peels form the core of the aesthetic team's repertoire. The plastic-surgery wing, which includes six private treatment rooms, caters to those in search of more significant solutions, such as to lift eyes, shape noses, or banish unwanted bulk.
The center's 3,300-square-foot complex, envisioned by notable architect and designer Agustin Fernandez, steeps patrons in a sensory bath of postmodernism. Inside pristine white treatment rooms, leather lounge chairs present sleek vantage points to take in the surrealist artworks and plants that offset the building's stark architectural lines and corner-shaped corners.
Equipped with creativity and beauty skills honed at institutes in Barcelona, Spain, seasoned cosmetologist and stylist Monica Rosental brought her hair and eyelash talents stateside when she opened her salon in 2003. Her background studying painting, music, and architecture lends the eyes of an artist to her services, such as sculpting hairstyles with fresh cuts, adding texture to strands, or splashing hair with new hues. Monica's specialty is hair extensions, and she advises clients on the best type to fit their needs before tucking in clips, attaching keratin tips, or affixing tape or curtain extensions. In addition to tending hair, Monica ups eyelash potential with extensions, dyes, and perm services. Soothing music imbues the salon's private suites with a relaxing atmosphere, and a free parking area boasts enough room to fit several cars or a single brontosaurus.
Dr. Jorge Gaviria brings more than 15 years of hair-restoration-surgery experience to every procedure he performs. Moreover, as Dr. Gaviria's website proclaims, he is not just a surgeon but "an artist whose medium is the hair and scalp." He and the med-spa team at Pure Restorations help men and women regain their coif confidence with follicle transplants that cause minimal discomfort. Transplants reverse the once-irreversible thinning associated with genetics, medication, and kleptomaniacal hats. The clinic's menu of rejuvenating services also includes facials, injectable wrinkle fillers, sclerotherapy, and laser hair removal.
Whether guests are looking for a new hairstyle, perfectly painted nails, or a glowing complexion, Envogue Salon & Spa can help. Its stylists craft coifs with precision cuts and transform hair with beautiful L'Or?al Professionel and Inoa color, and nail techs pamper hands and feet with luxurious mani-pedis. Beauty transformations don't end with haircare and nailcare. The spa also offers facials, waxes, and threadings, plus airbrush tans and Couleur Caramel makeup applications. In addition, permanent makeup keeps morning routines simple and stops pillowcases from badmouthing errant mascara.
The professional beauty-bolstering team, with more than 10 years of experience, at Image Maker Medical Aesthetics transform clients with a slate of noninvasive and surgical procedures. Laser treatments aim to reduce unwanted patches of hair and spider veins, and faces perk up after permanent-makeup applications, Botox injections, and Zoom teeth-whitening services.
