The luxurious Lapis Spa at the iconic Fontainebleau Miami Beach Hotel is now offering the new craze of medical-grade facials to their already impressive lineup of spa treatments. Two of the new facials include Dermaplaning and Micro-needling. If you’re unfamiliar with the treatments, think of the now famous “Vampire Facial” you’ve probably seen on the Kardashians’ Instagram pages—which is more formally called micro-needling. Now, Lapis is ensuring that you can look your absolute best without having to take a trip to the medical spa. Both of these treatments provide immediate improvements to the skin’s appearance with the reduction of fine lines, plumper skin, brighter, radiant looking skin and more. Here is everything you need to know about the new haute facials:


Dermaplaning is a form of exfoliation that goes deep into your pores through the use of a special facial blade that removes dead skin cells and peach fuzz from the face. Following the dermaplaning, a Lapis esthetician applies a mild peel that will dissolve the dirt found deep inside the guests’ pores. The treatment reduces fine lines and superficial discoloration of the skin’s face by removing the top layers of the skin which harbor the dead skin cells. Following the treatment, the face will emerge looking radiant, more firm and smooth. While there is no downtime to the treatment, guests should avoid sun exposure before and after  to ensure the best results and avoid burning the skin. The treatment is 50 minutes long.

Cosmetic Micro-needling

While it may seem intimidating, cosmetic micro-needling is the current craze of medical facials and results in a truly time-defying facial. The whole process includes a cleaning, application of a three-layer peel and use of a needling pen to create micro channels that allow for better product penetration. The use of the fine needle tips help vitamins, including hyaluronic acid, Vitamin A, C and E peptides, to penetrate the skin at a deeper level. Following the treatment, the skin will be glowing, increase firmness and have reduced fine lines. If you’re looking for strong anti-aging results, this is the perfect treatment for you and is suitable for all skin types—particularly those suffering from dryness, sun damage and increased fine lines. Like the dermaplaning, guests should avoid sun exposure before and after the treatment for best results. The treatment is 50 minutes long.
