Now that the HydraFacial experience is available at McAllister Spa, we’ve taken our partnership with SkinCeuticals to the next level. We have handcrafted a truly unique skincare treatment -the “Antioxidant HydraFacial by SkinCeuticals.” 

This 45-minute Antioxidant HydraFacial delivers the most potent anti-aging facial treatment available in Miami, backed by the most trusted subclinical skincare line in the world. 

SkinCeuticals Clean!

This customized HydraFacial treatment starts with preparing the skin to receive the maximal benefits of the HydraFacial. Eye makeup and lip color is gently removed with SkinCeuticals Gentle Cleanser & soft, pre-moistened gauze pads. 

A small amount of Gentle Cleanser is then massaged onto a damp face and neck until your esthetician determines your skin is thoroughly clean!

HydraFacial Perfect Skin

Exfoliation is the first step, gently removing debris and dead skin cells, to reveal soft, supple skin. A mixture of glycolic & salicylic acids is then applied, delivering the benefits of a mild chemical peel without a post-peel. 

The final step is where the dirt hits the road! Using HydraFacial’s patented vortex suction tip, your esthetician cleans out your pores and removes the surface debris from your skin.

SkinCeuticals “C”

Now that the HydraFacial process has revealed your flawlessly clean face, your esthetician will customize a Vitamin C masque. This facial masque contains a well-mixed combination of SkinCeuticals products such as Vitamin C Firming Masque, Equalizing Toner and Phyto Corrective Gel.  It is gently applied to your face, allowed to set and then gently removed with cool water.

Preventing Future Skin Damage

Based upon your esthetician’s evaluation of your skin’s condition, your face is primed to absorb one of several serums. A mainstay of any SkinCeuticals treatment is the use of CE Ferulic. If fine lines, uneven skin texture or wrinkles are noted, your esthetician may elect to use one of HydraFacial’s booster serums, such as Dermabuilder Boost or Growth Factor Boost.

To top of this antioxidant facial feature, your esthetician will apply SkinCeuticals Triple Lipid Restore 2:4:2, finishing with Physical Fusion UV Defense SPF 50. And with this last step, you are ready to face the world, face refreshed and flawless.

Last 2 Steps…

On your way out, there’s only two steps left…pick up your home care regimen and book next month’s HydraFacial appointment. Discounted packages for monthly HydraFacials are available in limited quantities so ask your esthetician about these specials.

SNS Manicures – A Gel Nail Alternative with Staying Power!

SNS Manicures – A Gel Nail Alternative with Staying Power!

SNS manicures

The Newest South Beach Trend in Nails

As holiday season strikes, the need for a trusty, long-lasting lacquer is at an all-time high in nail salons in Miami Beach. Until now, most of us have defaulted to the ever-reliable gel manicure. While gel polish does have substantially more staying-power than the traditional variety, it doesn’t always last the touted full two weeks as promised. Between family affairs, office parties and friendly get togethers, your busy holiday social schedule leaves little time for doctoring up unsightly chipping or peeling. Meet the SNS manicure, a non-damaging option able to withstand even the most compulsive polish-peeling tendencies.


Book Before the Holiday Beauty Rush

Book Before the Holiday Beauty Rush

We are weeks away from the holiday season & our schedule in the nail salon and hair salon are booking up quickly. Our nail technicians perform the best manicures in Miami Beach “hands down” (pun totally intended!). Whether you are on the every-other-week schedule for classic manicures, the once every three-week booking for Gelish! gel polish pedicures or you’ve fallen in love with our SNS powder dip manicures, you should definitely book through New Year’s Eve this year. Thanksgiving won’t be nearly as sweet without a perfect cranberry-colored mani, Hanukah will flail without that “opulently-ombre’d” navy to baby blue powder dip mani, you won’t crush that office Christmas party without some holiday nail art and whatever will you do come NYE without a flawless & festive pedicure to compliment the “perfect” pair of high heels. =)

And if nails are the essential detail, fresh haircuts, flawless hair color and perfect styles are a must. Nothing makes gray hair grow in faster than in-laws “visiting”, right? If that’s your regular beauty fix, your favorite hair colorists here at McAllister still have some availability in coming weeks (…but it’s filling up fast!) and you should DEFINITELY book your next couple of appointments now. If you are looking to freshen up highlights or create a whole new look to WOW your friends before the holiday parties start, let’s get to work. Text us to book your appointment (link below) and send along a few pictures of your hair today and inspiration shots to work toward.

As for New Year’s Eve, we are once again operating on a limited service menu and the prices are different (higher) than those charged the other 364 days of the year. For our locals, we will be fully staffed on 12/27-12/30 to accommodate our regulars’ usual needs. Please book on these days prior to December 31 to avoid the absolute craziness and our special event pricing…all of Miami Beach’s visitors seemed to descend on us in those last hours to look their absolute best as we welcome in 2020.

To text message us and book your next appointments with the assistance of Ksenia, Brandy, Sandra & the gang, click HERE. Don’t worry if it’s after hours, it’s our first priority when we open the following day. If email works better for you, click HERE or on any orange-colored link in the top right hand corner of the website. And if nothing else, the good old-fashioned telephone still works, so give us a ring and we will be happy to talk it over with you!

Make a Massage Part of Your Monthly Routine

Make a Massage Part of Your Monthly Routine

So often Breast Cancer Awareness overwhelms our health consciousness in October, but National Massage Therapy Awareness Week shouldn’t be ignored this October 23-29. Take a moment to listen to what your body is telling you. Is there a frustrating kink in the muscles of your neck that you just cannot massage away? Do you feel pain between your shoulder blades that you physically can’t reach no matter how you stretch? Is your lower back stiff, making it difficult to move left and right or to go about your daily activities? Are your legs super sore after your latest weekend warrior sports activities? Massage may be the way to alleviate much of the stress, tension and pain that accompanies your usual routine.

While some may see massage as a luxury treat while on vacation, or a spa service that you indulge in when someone gifts it to you, it can be an invaluable part of your routine – just as sleeping nightly, working out daily and eating healthy foods and drinking adequate amounts of water throughout the day.

Whereas 20 years ago, massages were relegated to luxury South Beach hotels and to the homes of the wealthy; these days, massage therapists are all around you – in the gyms you frequent, in the terminals of the airports you traverse and even in day spas like McAllister Spa. Take a moment to consider the many health benefits that have been well-established by everyone from the medical professionals in the hallways in hospitals at the Mayo Clinic to the comfy couches of Oprah.

Top Four Health Benefits of Massage

Massage Relieves Stress & Encourages Relaxation

Body massage has been scientifically shown relax a chaotic mind. It has been repeatedly shown to induce the body’s relaxation response, which occurs when the nervous system directs the body to “rest and digest.” This mentally rejuvenating period of time lasts LONG after the massage session is over, and the mind finds a greater sense of calm through the lens of an improved mental state. This typically leads to a happier mindset while inspiring creativity and an improved ability to manage the challenges of every day living.

Massage Improves Flexibility & Relaxes Muscles

Therapeutic massage is known to maintain and improve range of motion and flexibility. Regular working and manipulation of muscles, ligaments, tendons and joints also makes bodily movements more fluid and much less prone to injuries. The natural outcome of making the body more limber and less prone to strains and sprains is enhancements in athletic performance and the encouragement of active lifestyles.

Massage Strengthens the Immune System & Encourages Bodily Repair

One of the most beneficial effects of massage therapy is its profound effects upon the body’s defenses. The most obvious and immediate improvement noted by many massage clients is the reduction in fatigue and the consequent increase in energy. This is one of the results of more restful sleep. Over a longer term, scientific studies demonstrate that massages increase white blood cell count and lymphocyte activity. This, in combination with stimulation of the body’s lymphatic system, aid in the fight against bacteria and infection.

Promotes Long-Term Health & Wellness

Regular massage therapy sessions have a wide variety health effects. Neurologically, regular sessions have been shown to increase serotonin levels (the “feel good” neurotransmitter!) and modulate the release of dopamine within the brain. Massage also is noted to have a profound effect on cardiovascular health, including reductions in average blood pressure readings, a lessening of the stress hormone, cortisol and positive changes in cholesterol levels and ratios.

Ready, Set, Massage

The team at McAllister Spa typically can fulfill most massage requests within an hour.  Our licensed massage therapists are among the best on South Beach, and our treatment room is without parallel. We are the only day spa on Miami Beach (outside of the luxury hotels, that is) that has a shower right in the room. …It’s perfect to stop in, shower off a day’s sweat and massage away a day’s stress.
