It’s all about the science when it comes to skincare, according to aesthetician Raquel Medina-Cleghorn, who recently opened Raquel New York, her namesake studio in Tribeca. Perched on top of an historic loft building filled with art galleries, the 1,800-square-foot, light-filled studio is a minimalist nod to ’70s Italian post-modernism. The serene space includes art by photographer David Allee and a retail gallery filled with unique skincare and lifestyle products. Medina-Cleghorn combines innovative technologies, deep tissue massage and science-backed, efficacious products in her face and body treatments to transform skin into its best version. Among her fans are Jennifer Lawrence, Léa Seydoux and Amber Valletta.
