An exfoliation treatment done with finely cut diamonds may seem unattainable, but international beauty brand L. Raphael prides itself in coming up with innovative and creative skin care products and treatments. Founded by Ronit Raphael-Leitersdorf in 2005 when she opened up her first Temple of Beauty, on Rue du Rhône, Geneva’s most prestigious shopping street, L. Raphael began with the simple premise that everyone, no matter their age, had a right to look their best. Since then, L. Raphael has had a meteoric rise in the luxury beauty industry with several locations in Europe, including Milan, Gstaad, Verbier, and Cannes. Motivated with an ongoing effort to improve skin care through inventive technology, L. Raphael is revealing their new line of products, Perfect Body. Recently, at the 66th edition of the Cannes Festival, L. Raphael also launched their latest body and face treatment, Beauty Diamond Treatment. While encouraging a realistic view on what these products can achieve, L. Raphael abides by noticeable results after using the Perfect Body toning body oil, anticellulite gel, and slimming cream. Rich in vitamins A, vitamins E, Omega 3, caffeine, and hazelnut oils, the Perfect Body line strives to enrich the epidermis as well as firm and moisturize, resulting in soft and supple skin.
By far one the most surprising and inventive L. Raphael has to unveil is their Beauty Diamond Treatment. Ingenious technology developed by L. Raphael’s team of physicians led by Professor Meir Shinitzky, L. Raphael’s head of Research and Development department and one of the leading scientists in biochemical research today, the Beauty Diamond Treatment proves to be state of the art in its field. Provided in an opulent setting in select L. Raphael locations, the Beauty Diamond treatment consists of deep exfoliation by fine cut diamonds, in order to ensure no dullness in the instrument.
The treatment stimulates blood flow of natural nutrients in the skin, effectively removes dead skin cells, and helps remove excess keratin in the epidermis in order for the skin to best absorb L. Raphael products. Quite literally cutting-edge technology, the Beauty Diamond Treatment remedies scars, acne, cellulite, wrinkles, and an irregular or patchy skin tone.
L. Raphael often pushes for out-of-the-box thinking when it comes to skin care technology, stemming from its founder’s, Ronit Raphael-Leitersdorf, traumatic accident she experienced as a teen. At 18, Ronit underwent a phenol skin peel in order to amend her acne, but only ended up with horrific chemical degree burns on her face. “I spent time in the hospital, and it took me 20 years to recover from the intervention,” says Raphael. Searching for a way to improve skin care in a safer and more medical manner, Raphael established a name for herself in the cosmetics world, one that will most likely keep resonating as long as L. Raphael presents exciting products such as the Beauty Diamond Treatment.
