I was impressed from the first time I called for an appointment. It was a very personal experience as I was guided as to what facial was best for me. I was dissapointed when told that it was three weeks before a spot was available. But, truly, it was so worth it! I had the most superb facial I ever had. Sheila listened to me,gave me advice and did a fantastic facial I'd highly recommend the triple oxygen facial. I looked so good afterwards that my husband insisted on taking me to Morton's for dinner. I knew I looked great. Three weeks later and I still get compliments. Make sure to put this place on your bucket list. It's the best thing in Miami.

I got some SpaFinder cards for my birthday & was lucky to try Skin Institute. I went for an oxygen facial and was treated to the best facial. Sheila got all the black heads out & left my skin really smooth.I also tried some cleanser she gave me & it's the best one I ever used. I went back & got a body wrap with Elvira that was so relaxing. The sauna relaxed me until I almost melted. Then Elvira scrubbed & rubbed this rich cream allover. It was super.

Truly The Best
What a wonderful surprise! Birthday Spa Finder and a marvellous trip to the divine Skin Institute. Dreamy scents and a really tasty organic cucumber drink greeted me along with big smiles. A very warm welcome followed by the best facial experience of my life. It was a triple oxygen facial that seeemed to turn back the clock 15yrs. It lasted a long time and was just perfect. My "glow" is on for good now. This charming place is light years above anyplace else, thats for sure. The bag stuffed with free samples and tshirts was icing on the cake.

I Heart the Skin Institute!
Love the Skin Insitute! Visited the spa while on vacation and fell in love with it. Tom is a great facialist, and I felt extremely pampered the entire time. Thank you!

Everything was more than I expected. Walking in I was greeted with a strawberry lemonade and a friendly smile. Tom brought me into a cozy room with a lavender scent that was heavenly. He quickly assessed my skin and recommended an oxygen facial for me. (yes, I confess, I'm a smoker) Well, he was spot on. He cleansed my dull skin with a clarisonic, which I loved. Then he explained each step as he went along. I liked that! The oxygen blast was incredible. By the time we finished, my skin was dewey and fresh, no dullness! This guy knows his stuff! He also gave me a bunch of free samples to try out and I love them. I gotta go back and buy some of that cleanser. My skin has never looked this good. I love that Spa Finder has these little gems. This place is definitely top of the list.

My Go-To Destination Spa!
While on vacation with my sister, she treated me to a facial at the Skin Institute. I left extremely relaxed...from the minute I walked through the door and got into my soft robe and had my first sip of the Pinot, I knew I was in for a treat. I got good advice for my skin which I was able to easily take care of after the session. Will be back, on my next vacation! :]

All I can say is that I have never had a better facial in my life. My mother & I booked the Oxygen facials and they were nothing short of incredible. The women work every little detail and make sure that you leave with absolutely perfect skin. Where else can you get such attebtion to detail? We followed up with time in the sauna, with free merlot. Nice touch! And then had amazing massages with 2 men that were born to do massages! Wow! We melted under their hands. And they gave us the full hour, which seems to be rare these days. As we were leaving, they gave us each a bag that was filled with free take home stuff, including cool t shirts, slippers & lots of other things to try at home. Wow! Now I understand why it took us so long to get an appointment. They are unique & really give you more than you could possibly expect. Everyone was so gracious and helpful. Can't wait to go back!

I went in for the Kojic acid peel. The staff which was 2 people were very nice, the lady was very professional and went above and beyond. The space was a little smaller then expected but they have the best prices in town and believe me I searched and they offer a variety of different services to fit your needs. They really do take care of the people they treat. The extraction process was VERY PAINFUL but I will go back, I liked my results.

One of the best places for skin advice
This is by far on eof the best places to go for skin issues/advice. I felt like I was at the dermatologist paying a consultant to advise me of my troubles BUT with more... I got treatments, was checked out and personally attended to in a way that made me feel as though I was paying these people top dollar. Very nice place and the advice I took with me left my skin in a much better place as to date. Still I keep pace with such methods and plan to go back here upon my next trip to the area.

My experience in Skin Institute was divine. It's a cozy oasis; an escape from everyday stress.My coworkers surprised me and I cant thank them enough. Gima's massage was straightforward and so relaxing.First I enjoyed a glass of Pinot Noir in the sauna with my fluffy robe and started de-stressing. Divine. My facial with Shiela was magical. She massaged different serums that made me look like I was 21 again! After almost 3 hrs. of heaven, I realized that I had to go home. Oh well! Happily they told me about Spa Finders Deal Days next month. I'll be back. You can count on it.

Thank you Spa Finder for giving everyone such a wonderful spa. Skin Institute is tops. Its such arelaxing place that you want to keep going back. Big,plush robes that fell like a million. But the real treasure is the staff. Each one I spoke to was genuinely nice. I had a facial-body wrap package that was true nirvana. My face is luminous,looking young & vibrant. The citrus body wrap smoothed my rough knees and dry skin on my legs. They're very generous,giving a bag filled with fun things to try at home,even a free t-shirt! Where else can you spend less than $200 for almost 3 hrs. of total pampering and leave looking like a celebrity?I highly recommend

I was surfing the web for a good place to get a facial done and came across Spa Institute. I read their good reviews and decided to try it. I got an acne facial today. It was the best facial ever!!! The room and atmosphere was relaxing. Sheila was very experienced and provided excellent work! I haven't had a facial for a couple of years...My face feel so fresh and new. Can't wait to go back again!=)

Relax & Enjoy
Everything relaxing from the moment you open the door. First, relaxing aroma candles, next calming organic tea, then a plush robe & slippers to relax in the sauna with. Cool towels to refresh your face. Then you're led to another room with a very comfortable bed for the faciial of a lifetime. The oxygen facial was truly the best imaginable. I dozed off and touched my beautifully soft skin. Then I decided to return to the relaxing sauna, this time with a glass of champagne. I amost dozed off again. The body scrub & wrap was divine. And, yes, I did doze off again with all the warm, creamy shea butter softening me head to toe. Everything went beyond my expectations, and everyone was so genuinely nice. They all truly love what they do and it shows with their exceptional customer service. I'll remember my spa finder/skin institute experience for a long time.

I was thrilled from the moment we got off the elevator. The scents coming from SkinInstitute were wonderful. They greeted us with organic lemonade & treats. My mom had the oxygen facial-which she loved. and I had the all-time best microdermabrasion facial. Sheila explained all the steps as she went along & made sure to take out all the ugly blackheads, leaving my face as soft as a baby's _ _ _ _! Her hands are like an angels. Now I can't wait to return.

I checked Spa Finders list & found this gem. It's a small spa with a lot to offer. The facials was the most wonderfully complete facial I ever had. The woman had like 40 yrs. experience & it showed. When I was done I decided to chill in the comfy sauna for a bit. It was so relaxing, and they explained all the benefits, which was nice. I then removed my big, fluffy robe & got up on the table for a faaabulous massage. This guy really knew how to stretch me & work all my muscles. They served me some delicious fresh lemonade & gave me a bag full of samples & a tee shirt to take home. Free. Wow! Is this my lucky day. I feel great & hope to return soon

I used my Spa Finder gift certificate at Ski Institute and had THE BEST FACIAL of my life. I never had such a great experience. It was a beautiful place with nice smelling candles and really soft music. I had this fresh lemonade that had spicy feel-great! The room had all these cool machines that looked so hi-tech. Sheila did a oxygen facial that left me looking and feeling wonderful. She took her time and did a fantastic job. Her hands were the best I ever had on my face,she just knew what to do like a real expert.The oxygen felt fresh and cool on my face.Its been 2weeks and my face never looked better. When we finished she showed me the sauna & some massage rooms,which were beautiful.Perfect for chilling out with a stone massage. The other people there also were happy,telling me how great this spot is,that they've been coming for years. looks like I'll be doing the same.

The best massage and body scrub
Wonderful atmosphere and knowledgeable staff! I got a massage and body scrub as a birthday present: so far my best present ever! I came out of the spa relaxed and peaceful! I would recommend to visit this spa to any of my friends!

the best facial
Finding Skin Institute was a treat. I looked it up with Spa Finder and gave it a try. Glad I did. Spa Finder is the coolest gift certificate. I can use it anywhere over the globe. The best facial I got so far is here. Everyone is so polite and knowledgeable. They answer any questions with a smile. The spa itself is a great place to chill. Very soft music in every room. Rooms have scented candles that make everything look and smell great. The highly skilled therapists live to please customers. Everything is done with love. Stone massage was great, facial even better. This quiet hide-away has something for everyone. Don't miss it. It's a great experience.

The Best Day Spa Ever
My husband gave me a full day at the Skin Institute Spa for our anniversary. I was truly delighted and impressed with the services and the professionalism of the staff. I recieved the best massage and facial ever and I have had many. As soon as you walk into this intimate spa you are intoxicated by the soft music, the scented candles and the soothing waiting area. This spa is a rare treat for all of the senses. The owner was gracious and I was treated as though I was the only client in the spa. I can not wait to return next month for another massage and facial.

Always the Best
Incredibly wonderful facials-the Best-voted by readers of New Times & City Search. Intimate Spa with exceptional service. Great body wraps & massage. Tucked away in a high rise off of Biscayne-secret treasure. Unbelievably great service by very experienced staff. Expect the Best and get it at reasonable prices. Carly F.

The Best Facial
I have been to many spas for facials and no-one does a facial like Shelia. In two words she's the World's Best. She got to each and every blackhead squeezing till they were all gone. Never before has my face looked so clean. I'm hooked and already booked my next appointment. Skin Institute is just as beautiful as in the picture and the music is is mesmerizing. Their spa menu is tantalizing. Great idea for a gift certificate
