L.Raphael Opens La Maison in Manhattan

Maison L.Raphael Spa New YorkNew York City spa-goers will be right at home at La Maison L.Raphael New York, a new outpost for the Swiss brand. Located steps from Central Park, the 5,000-square-foot space features 10 treatment rooms, a client consultation space, men’s and women’s changing areas, two terraces with park views, as well as a retail boutique offering the full line of L.Raphael skincare products. The spa specializes in both general wellness and more medical-based services, including photo rejuvenation, face and body sculpting, and laser hair removal. Another specialty service is the Diamond-Oxy Lift ($1,790, 50 minutes), which boasted its star-studded debut at the recent Cannes Film Festival. It involves a combination of infused oxygen, the patent-pending LEC Complex, and diamond powder to improve skin texture and tone; minimize the appearance of lines, wrinkles, sunspots, and stretch marks; and rebuild collagen and elastin for firmer, younger-looking skin. “At L.Raphael, we pride ourselves on catering to the nuanced needs of our discerning clientele, who do not have the luxury of time to pamper themselves and take care of their skin,” says founder and president Ronit Raphael. “Highly trained therapists create tailored wellness programs based on clients’ unique needs and schedules, offering simultaneous treatments within one hour’s time.”
