As Miami prepares to host the 20th anniversary of Art Basel and Miami Art Week, locals and visitors alike are prepping for a week of events, art shows and gallery tours — as well all the can’t-miss parties happening on and around the beach. And for Miamians in the know, the secret weapon is skincare guru Amy Peterson, a celebrity aesthetician with a oh-so-Instagrammable med spa and boutique in Miami Beach, founded in 2013. Known and loved for her consistent results using a combination of tried-and-true methods along with the latest in skincare technologies, Peterson — aka “the Real Skin Savant” — is helping clients get ready for one of Miami’s biggest weekends of the year.

“I launched my namesake medspa, Skincare by Amy Peterson, to provide an exceptional patient experience from start to finish,” Peterson tells GRAZIA USA. “Every detail matters to me and my staff. We also want you to have a clear understanding of how to combat aging, your personal skin concerns so you can your best and feel confident.”

With all new clients, Peterson starts off with a skin consultation “to identify whether you are seeing us for corrective work, or maintenance and to devise a comprehensive plan to help meet your needs.” Some of the latest technologies that Peterson is using to target get client’s skincare issues include her bespoke, completely personalized Magic Hour Facial, or the ground-breaking Tixel, Aqua Gold, Environ Youth Reset Facials and Glacial RX treatments, all causing a stir because of their radical, unique approach to skincare with exceptional results.

“I think what really stands out about our practice is the ability to incorporate multiple devices into one treatment to get the best results,” says Peterson. “We recently launched five different combo treatments that we will be offering our clients in the fall and winter. One of them is called Full Corrective Reset.”

The Full Corrective Reset consists of:

1. Sofwave to lift and tighten the skin.
2. Aerolase to treat pigmentation and vascular conditions.
3. Then treating the eyes and lips with TIxel to address the superficial wrinkles.
4. Lastly adding frozen exosomes to increase the production of fibrin and elastane and to rejuvenate the skin with a more specific and direct impact on such significant complexion concerns as skin tone and texture irregularities, acne scarring, & hyperpigmentation.

“Another favorite of mine is our E-Body Makeover treatment. We incorporate EON to eliminate fat, Emsculpt Neo to build muscle and Endospheres to help with cellulite, flush the lymphatic system and tighten the skin,” Peterson adds.

In addition to giving treatments, alongside a talented team of aestheticians, Peterson has curated an in-spa boutique and e-tailer (dubbed The Real Skin Savant) carrying some of the best brands on the market including 111SKIN, Augustinus Bader, Dennis Gross, Biologique Recherche, Dr. Sharad, and Environ.
