Finding a good facialist is kind of like finding a good partner: Most of us have to shop around a little before we settle on "the one." And, much like bad relationships, bad facials can leave us with scars, burns, and a deflated sense of self-esteem.
For that reason, personal recommendation is easily the most desired way to book a facial; you want to make sure you’re in trusted, capable hands — you know, the kind that can extract without causing a flinch, that will leave you pink (not beet red!) after a good peel, or give you the glow you want all year round.
Ahead, a few of our favorite beauty-obsessed New Yorkers share who they trust with their flawless visages.
British aesthetician Georgia Louise is an East Coast favorite among beauty insiders (Gucci Westman is a client) and actresses (Emma Stone, Jennifer Aniston, and Linda Evangelista are reportedly clients, too) alike.
We understand why: Her signature Lift and Sculpt facial helps to do just that, and all of her treatments are geared toward naturally lifting cheekbones and brows, de-puffing and brightening the face, and softening fine lines and wrinkles through deep-tissue massage, micro-current treatments, and more.
