Best Facials in Coral Gables

When it comes to looking younger, facing the needle isn’t the only option. Most facial treatments help prevent aging through deep cleaning, tightening treatments, and products packed with nutrients – along with the latest technology to ensure your skin gets the nourishment it needs. All you have to do is lay back, relax, and let your facialist do her thing (and maintain your skincare routine, of course). We visited some local favorites to help you save face. 

Pecan’s Day Spa 

Best Facials in Coral Gables

The Ultimate Facial ($205) lasts 100 fabulous minutes. It features a high frequency red light to calm and de-contaminate the skin, followed by an ice tightening treatment to infuse hyaluronic acid into the pores. After a charcoal peel mask to push in nutrients and pull out toxins, we felt awoken from a deep sleep, refreshed and cleansed. 520 Biltmore Way. 305.284.8636 /

Clé Facial Bar 

Best Facials in Coral Gables

There are three standard facials at Clé, each of which varies slightly according to the skin of the individual. We tried The Indulgence, a 70-minute facial for $135 that includes steaming, extractions, and extra pampering according to your skin’s needs. Our skin felt immensely more hydrated and deeply cleaned. 2525 Ponce de Leon Blvd. 305.879.6243 /

La Prairie 

Now at Neiman Marcus in The Shops at Merrick Park, La Prairie Spa Room offers free facials if you purchase products from the store. Your facialist will assess your skin to determine which line is right for you of four collections offered. The one-hour treatment consists of deep surface cleaning, a hydrating mask, and a face massage – our favorite part of the facial. 390 San Lorenzo Ave. 786.999.1000  /

Miracle Spa Center 

New to the Gables facial scene (since February), Miracle Spa Center is the high tech alternative with its Hydra-Facial treatment ($279). Extractions are performed with a mini vacuum, sucking out impurities and exfoliating your skin. The process signals the brain to produce new skin cells – while pushing nourishing serum in, leaving skin soft and radiant. 44 Miracle Mile. 786.238.7375 /

Biltmore Spa 

Best Facials in Coral Gables

There is nothing quite like the Biltmore Spa, overlooking the golf course from the seventh floor of the hotel. Its newest offer, a 90-minute Youth Reset Facial ($210), uses an applied mask with electrical currents to deliver nutrients more effectively into the skin. The mask is then peeled off and moisturizer applied, leaving skin dewy, replenished, and tightened. 1200 Anastasia Ave. 305.913.3187 /
