Nestled in the heart of Miami Beach, just off the corner of 16th street on Lenox Avenue, lies a true hidden gem: Skincare by Amy Peterson. Two years ago, renowned aesthetician Amy Peterson founded the full-service medical spa with one goal in mind: to provide personalized skincare solutions that leave her clients looking and feeling their absolute best. From the moment you step inside, you’re transported to a world of tranquility and relaxation. The aesthetic and ambiance are a breath of fresh air, and the staff is nothing short of warm and welcoming. Upon your arrival, they’ll give you a tour of the med spa, sharing insights on their vast array of services and treatments.
I recently had the pleasure of experiencing their Magic Hour Facial, a treatment created by Amy Peterson herself. She developed this facial from her desire to treat the skin on multiple levels, allowing the compatibility of a variety of technical facials to co-exist as one. The Magic Hour Facial is a departure from the one-size-fits-all and paint-by-numbers style facials that provide the same treatment to everyone, regardless of their skin type or concerns. By tailoring each treatment to your skin’s specific needs on that day and leveraging a bespoke blend of tools and approaches, the aestheticians are able to deliver optimal results every time.
For the Magic Hour Facial, your aesthetician will curate your experience by choosing from a variety of devices and technology, such as Hydrafacial, Mesojet, Oxylight, Triawave, BR Remodeling, facial vibration, Cryo T-Shock, Lightstim, enzymatic peels, and more. Within each device, there are different protocols, serums, boosters, peels, and more that they use depending on whether you’re looking to achieve a glow, prevent breakouts, reduce inflammation, or target any other skin condition or concern. Based on your skin’s needs, your magic hour facial can vary each time you go in.
From the moment I met Amy, I knew I was in expert hands. She has a keen eye for identifying skin concerns and knew exactly which treatments and techniques would work best for me as soon as she saw my skin. Below are the devices and techniques she used to address my unique needs and achieve that coveted glow:
What should be a staple in everyone’s skincare, this treatment is used to hydrate, cleanse, extract, and hydrate again. It’s a deep cleansing facial that’s great for all skin types.
Using a wand applicator coated with a gel that’s safe for all skin types, this treatment applies both collagen-boosting cold and thermal heat during the facial. The alternating heat and cold currents shrink large pores, remove trapped toxins from under the skin, encourage fresh blood circulation, and increased oxygen and nutrients to penetrate the skin cells.
This device uses radiofrequency to rejuvenate, tighten, and firm the skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, contouring the skin, and more.
Vibration Therapy with Massage
This device is like a Theragun for your face, promoting circulation and lymphatic drainage, giving you a refreshed and revitalized look.
This treatment uses a non-invasive method to deliver antioxidants and minerals directly into the skin with a super fine stream of liquid, resulting in hydrated, tightened, and rejuvenated facial skin.
The perfect ending to your facial, this device uses LED red light therapy to enhance collagen production, improve circulation, eliminate bacteria, and improve the overall texture and tone of your skin.
To complement these devices and techniques, products from two highly esteemed skincare lines were used during my facial: MBR and 111 Skin. MBR is a high-end German skincare line that uses cutting-edge technology to create effective, luxurious skincare products. 111 Skin, on the other hand, is a UK-based skincare line that’s all about using the power of space research to create innovative products that help you achieve radiant, youthful-looking skin.
After my Magic Hour Facial, I couldn’t believe the immediate difference in my skin. It was plump, dewy, and glowing. It’s now been a week since my treatment, and my skin is still smooth and radiant. The combination of devices and techniques used during the facial truly made a difference in the overall appearance and feel of my skin. It’s safe to say that I am obsessed with the Magic Hour Facial and will be going back to Amy and her team for all my beauty needs.
Apart from the Magic Hour Facial, Skincare by Amy is a full-service medical spa offering an assortment of beauty treatments and services to have you looking and feeling your best. From Botox and fillers to laser services and various body treatments performed in The Body Suite, the newest addition to the med spa. I would recommend calling to book a consultation to see exactly how they can help you achieve your best skin and appearance.
Overall, my experience at Skincare by Amy Peterson was exceptional. The Magic Hour Facial left my skin feeling refreshed, revitalized, and glowing. If you’re looking for a personalized approach to skincare that’s tailored to your specific skin concerns, I highly recommend checking out Skincare by Amy Peterson. And don’t forget to book your facial every 4-8 weeks to keep your skin looking its best!
