Timothy Burns worked with Christian Dior, Trish McIlvoy, and Bobbi Brown and as a national artist for Laura Mercier before forging his own path as a solo makeup artist and waxing specialist at his namesake spa. His artistic approach has earned him a flock of returning clients who request eyebrow waxes to create arches so sharp they garner love sonnets from the Arc de Triomphe. Aesthetician and 20-year industry veteran Tanya Sandler adds her own efforts to the beauty mecca with a slate of facials harnessing microdermabrasion, microcurrent, and LED technologies to firm and brighten visages. For waxing services, the spa relies on Andraya, an Aveda Institute graduate with more than 11 years of experience as a skin-beautifying aesthetician.
The aestheticians at The Face Place know that different faces have different skincare needs. That’s why they design each of their facials with an audience in mind—they have a smoker’s facial for smokers, an anti-aging facial for adults advanced in years, a teen facial for adolescents, and a European facial for turncoats. Along with facials, the staff offers a full menu of health and beauty services that includes body treatments, waxing services, and makeup applications. And, to round out the mix of wellness services, they have a clinical hypnotherapist who performs hypnosis to help clients conquer phobias, improve self-confidence, or release stress.
At The Massage Department, licensed therapists Emilie and Jenna use multiple modalities to delete tension. Their deep-tissue massages root out knots from lower layers of muscles, while their relaxation massages can be blended with hot towel applications to make the back feel thoroughly pampered.
