  • Le Studio - Liliane Weinrob
    Aesthetician and massage therapist Liliane Weinrob's career spans more than three decades and two countries. The French native began her career in Paris, where she became a specialist in lymphatic drainage massage––a method designed to reduce excess fluid in the tissues and bring relief to swelling and tightness. In 1981, Liliane's journey took her to Washington D.C., where she spent the next 15 years studying physical and massage therapy and working as a skin care consultant for several established beauty companies, plastic surgeons, and dermatologists. By 1996, she was ready to combine her talents into one venture and so she opened her own skin and body therapy studio, where she's been tending to her client's inner and outer well-being ever since. Inside her cozy suite at the Van Ness Archstone Building, Liliane breathes life into dull complexions using advanced skincare services, such as microcurrent therapy and chemical peels, and European-made products by Sothys and Dr. Eckenstein. Lymphatic drainage techniques play an important role in everything from massage to facials, which incorporate the tissue-renewing movements into a regime that includes cleansing, vegetable peels, aromatherapy steam, and extractions. Once muscles are relaxed and faces have been restored to their pre-pie fight radiance, Liliane moves on to other aesthetic enhancements such as eyelash and eyebrow tinting or hair removal for both face and body.
