The silver lining of having to reluctantly pull yourself away from the private VIP room here is that you know you look like a much better version of yourself than when you walked in.
And what about the all-important chair itself? Good question. Full grain black leather. Oh yes, touché.
The entire experience at Maison Lutétia is a quintessentially Parisian one that puts you into a state of homely comfort and relaxation. Such is the grandeur and opulence of the aesthetic than runs throughout, you could easily be in a five star hotel in the centre of the French capital.
From walking in, over the mosaic floor (a replica of the same flooring in the Paris clinic), the Michelangelo-esque ceiling paintings of fluffy clouds and an ethereal blue sky, right down to the wooden flooring shipped in from Paris and an original map of Lutétia (the original name for Paris) adorning the walls, this is a one-stop facility for all your grooming needs.
Maison Lutétia has quickly garnered a reputation for being one, if not the, leading aesthetic clinic in Europe. The Parisian-based clinic performs up to six transplants a day and has a waiting list of over seven months: such is its vaunted reputation. In September this year, founder and president of Maison Lutétia Nathanaël Aknine brought the clinic out to Dubai in partnership with the Al Futtaim Group.
While the clinic is now underway and performing transplants — for men and women — as well as a host of other cosmetic surgeries, one thing that cannot be overlooked is the barbers attached to the clinic in Festival City. Book in. Kick back. Netflix and chill. And leave as the best groomed version of you.
