SANA SKIN STUDIO APPEALS TO A NEW GENERATION OF USERS WITH ITS ACCESSIBLE FACIAL PROGRAM.
Interior of Sana Skin Studio
Derived from the Spanish word sanar, translating to “heal,” Wynwood’s Sana Skin Studio emphasizes beauty from the inside-out. Driven by individually curated, clean skincare, the brand has welcomed a new generation of clients with its accessible facial program that ranges from 30- to 70-minute offerings starting at just $55 per facial or $85 for a monthly package. Customizable add-ons enhance the experience and appeal to varying clientele, such as microcurrent, LED light room therapy or gua sha facial massages. In a setting that is both beautiful and inviting, Sana encourages guests to unplug and immerse themselves in a luxuriating and clean-centric pampering experience that transports them to uninhibited bliss.

Founder Valentina Hernandez indulging in some of her favorite skincare essentials
The idea of making clean beauty facials accessible and relevant to a new generation is unique. What prompted you to start Sana Skin Studio? I started Sana out of a desire for a new kind of skincare experience. As a consumer, I wasn’t satisfied with the options out there when it came to facials. I decided to reformulate the entire experience. I wanted our facials to be goal-driven and effective, while still accessible enough for a monthly ritual instead of a once-a-year splurge. Most of all, I wanted the experience to feel authentic and true. More than a skin studio, we’re a movement toward healthier skin and self-love.
Products offered at Sana Skin Studio
How do you choose which products to use and sell in the studio? At Sana, we stand for the best ingredients, ethics and efficacy and strive to align with like-minded brand partners. Something that’s special about Sana is that we don’t carry full product lines but instead carry the best from each brand. We look over the ingredient list to make sure it aligns with our clean beauty standards. Once it passes the test, we try each product. If that passes, we introduce the brand or product to our Sana community.
What are some of your go-to skin rituals for at-home care? There are so many! My personal favorite is a bath and a face mask. It’s important to give yourself little moments of self-care throughout the week. It’s so restorative for your skin, body and mind.
