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

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!

Rehab your Summer Skin with A Facial

Rehab your Summer Skin with A Facial

Post-Summer Skin Rehab

Between the sun, wind, chlorine, saltwater and endless hours in the sand, summer has likely left your skin in need of some serious TLC. We rounded up the best beauty fixes to tend to your biggest summer skin bummers. Fall, our facials will have us ready for you!

Hyperpigmentation

Hyperpigmentation occurs when UV rays kick melanin production into overdrive, resulting in dark spots on areas overexposed to the sun during the summer months – namely the face and hands. To reduce signs of photodamage at home, look for a lightening agent like kojic acid to stop additional and unnecessary melanin production and to help fade the appearance of discoloration. Try SkinCeuticals Phyto+ Botanical Gel, designed to help improve discoloration without irritation. The soothing gel is infused with cucumber and thyme to calm skin and is delivered in a hyaluronic acid base to hydrate parched skin and improve the overall appearance of skin.

Spa Solution: The Skinceuticals Gel Peel found on the skincare menu at McAllister Spa combines glycolic and lactic acids to exfoliate surface cells and hydrate the skin to effectively minimize the appearance of surface lines, smooth out rough skin texture, and fade hyper-pigmentation.

Soothe Irritation and Redness

Painful sun rash, burns and eczema flare-ups can all be attributed to a cocktail of excessive sweating, chlorine exposure, UV damage and irritation from sunscreen. Treat your sensitized skin to a reparative formula, like Dermalogica Barrier Repair, meant to reinforce the skin’s lipid barrier layer and form a shield against environmental assault. Oil of Evening Primrose, Borage Seed Oil and silicones as vitamins C and E help combat free radicals that can lead to inflamed and irritated skin, putting your itching, burning, stinging and redness to bed for good.

Spa Solution: The Dermalogica UltraCalming® Facial Treatment on McAllister’s facial menu relieves sensitive skin and reduces redness, itching and reactive flare-ups while protecting against a loss of the skin’s protective barrier.

Firm Up Sagging Skin

Overexposure to the sun saps skin’s elasticity by damaging skin’s elastin fibers and slowing collagen production, causing skin to lose its spring. Breathe new life into a sagging complexion by zapping collagen production back into high drive with products containing high percentages of vitamin C, an essential for collagen synthesis. Dermalogica MAP-15 regenerator is formulated with a highly-effective form of Vitamin C, which works in tandem with a blend of White Tea, Hyaluronic Acid, Glucosamine, Phospholipids, Algae and Yeast extracts to help stimulate collagen production, brighten skin tone and neutralize free radicals to dramatically increase hydration, firmness and elasticity.

Spa Solution: A Dermalogica AGE Smart® Facial Treatment helps control the biochemical triggers that lead to skin aging, including fine lines, age spots, and skin sagging, while treating signs of visible aging so skin is smoother, firmer and healthier.
