Five Facials to Recover From the Holidays

Decadent facials are the bread and butter of Miami’s top spas.

Biologique Recherche Remodeling Triple Facial at the Spa at the Mandarin Oriental Talk about state of the art. This treatment uses a remodeling machine, the power of four lifts and active Biologique Recherche serums to redefine facial contours and firm up the face. The intense process leaves skin firm and toned with lasting results. $425, 500 Brickell Key Drive, Miami, 305.913.8332

Double Lift Facial 90 at The Standard Spa The list of facials at this venue is vast, but we love this one because it’s all about expert hands, sculpting crystal powders and customized serums to lift the complexion at the cellular level and create currents that duplicate your own body’s energy to repair cellular imbalances. Translation: a glowing, happier you. $245, 40 Island Ave., Miami Beach, 305.673.1717

Hyper-Customized Facial by Naturopathica at Tierra Santa Healing House Ideal for men, expectant mothers and those who can’t stand lengthy treatments, this facial begins with a steam deep cleanse, essential oils application and extractions if needed. Warm aromatic towels and lymphatic drainage prepare the skin for a calendula mask that stimulates collagen. If so desired, the treatment can end with a glycolic peel. Eighty minutes later, you are out of that chair. $230, 3201 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, 786.655.5570

Infinite Beauty Hydrafacial at Acqualina Spa by ESPA The experts at this soul asylum have seen it all, and the beauty of this facial is its ability to be customized to the customer’s needs. The treatment uses detoxifying lymphatic drainage techniques and deep cleaning technology, as well as intense hydration to address various skin concerns. The experience concludes with LED light therapy to reduce signs of aging, a face mask for moisture and a scalp massage. $375, 17875 Collins Ave., Sunny Isles Beach, 305.918.8000

Longevity Detox Facial at Carillon Miami Wellness Resort We think this treatment was tailor-made for January. Designed to correct dullness and dehydration (i.e., the December holidays), the facial uses a combo of Macro Waves Sound, and qi gong and rolling roulage massage techniques to leave the skin recharged and ready to face 2020 resolutions. $195, 6801 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, 866.276.2226
