Best Deluxe Facial

  • The Peninsula Spa

    The Peninsula, 700 Fifth Ave., at 55th St.; 212-956-2888

    While most facials leave you with a momentarily cleaner, dewier complexion, the Peninsula’s splurgey Remodeling Facial ($295) does that, plus emulates the enduring effects of a costly face-lift (minus the invasiveness). Developed by Biologique Recherche, the 60-minute treatment uses electric currents to stimulate tissue, minimize fine lines, and enhance natural contours. On top of that, the face is cleansed, exfoliated, and slathered with serums containing unusual ingredients like—brace yourself—pig placenta and amniotic fluid, believed to boost the skin’s elasticity and hydrate for weeks at a time.
