Another year gone by doesn’t have to mean another year older—or at least looking like it. Start 2016 off by turning back the hands of time with these five anti-aging spa services around NYC.
The signature botanical facial ($195 for 60 minutes; $280 for 90 minutes) at Cornelia Spa wakes up winter skin by cleaning deep into your pores via a natural enzymatic exfoliator, before applying a wrinkle-reducing zen ginseng masque. Anti-aging and corrective serums are then layered with moisturizing emulsions tailored to your skin type before the treatment is finished off with an arm and hand massage. Complement your visit with a set of lashes ($500 for a full set; $250 for a half set) by lash extension expert Alicia Hunter, and enjoy a spoonful of sustainably harvested healing honey before the services even start. 20 E. 76th St., 646-358-3600
Anti-aging skincare gets scientific at L.RAPHAEL, where the intensive oxy-peel treatment ($890 for 50 minutes) involves a combination of oxygen, physiological water, and the spa’s LEC 40 compound, which is chock full of natural vital components that are missing in adult skin. The Oxy-Tech II machine allows for deeper penetration of the skin, and the service includes a soothing facial massage topped off with a boosting serum. Your skin will look and feel younger immediately. 57 E. 57th St., 212-350-6420
Since there isn’t a specific menu of treatments, guests at The Institute at Erno Laszlo are treated to a bespoke facial ($425) that is completely customized to their skin’s needs and the current season—which also means you’ll never get the same treatment twice. The personalized solutions address everything from firming to detoxifying, brightening to mattifying, and anything in between. Like the results? Purchase a membership ($4,250) for regular facials and other benefits like new products, exclusive invitations to classes and events, and more. 382 W. Broadway, 212-300-4111
Plump your skin to perfection with the ceramide anti-aging facial ($155). The latest in rejuvenating skincare nixes wrinkles, while strengthening your skin and improving its ability to retain moisture. Each facial at this spa includes a warm mitt hand treatment, a heated pad, and cool stones for post-extraction relief. Whether you’re a guest at The Chatwal or not, be sure to take in the hotel’s gorgeous Art Deco details, and maybe book a fun lunch at The Lambs Club after your treatment. 130 W. 44th St., 212-764-5900
Spa Valmont’s prime renewing pack ($210) uses an anti-stress cellular mask to smooth and relax facial features to unveil your skin’s natural beauty beneath. But this treatment isn’t just a one-time thing—the service provides long-term youthful benefits thanks to exclusive anti-aging and anti-wrinkle ingredients from Valmont. 37 E. 64th St., 212-606-4675
