The Spa at the Four Seasons Downtown fuses holistic and medi-aesthetic techniques to naturally relax the body, while offering targeted, solution-oriented treatments. “The Intense Glow by Dr. Burgener is my ultimate go-to facial to heal and resurface the skin from the winter’s harsh conditions,” says Tara Cruz, Director of the Spa. “The transformation is immediate, my face feels lifted, my pores are minimized, and my skin looks bright and flawless.” 27 Barclay St., 646-880-1999
“Our Instant Oxygen facial is the perfect treatment to get your skin ready for spring,” says Janet League-Katzin, owner of Sphatika. The luxurious multi-step facial uses League-Katzin’s own skincare line, formulated with 100% natural ingredients. “The products naturally stimulate collagen and elastin, minimizing fine lines and wrinkles, leaving you with a healthy, glowing complexion.” 818 Madison Ave., 212-265-5885
“At Naturopathica, every ingredient counts,” says founder Barbara Close. “We select botanicals like aloe, oats, and seed oils that help to nourish and repair the skin. To refresh dull or fatigued skin after the long winter, try the Naturopathica Signature Bio-Energy Lift Facial.

Angele Laurin, Director, Global Spa & Cabine at La Mer, recommends the Miracle Broth Facial, thanks to the powerful healing ingredients in The Spa Broth formulation. “The treatment begins with a facial massage, which works to warm and stimulate micro-circulation prior to applying The Spa Broth,” she says. “Skin is later cooled down, which works to ‘seal’ The Spa Broth into the skin.” Baccarat Hotel & Residences, 28 W. 53rd St., 212-790-8910
