Using techniques from around the world, Liliya Chernova of The Perfect Facial specializes in deep-pore cleansing facials, anti-aging facials, and facial treatments designed to accentuate the work of plastic surgeons. Clients of all ages, including many top celebrities, come to her from all over the world to take advantage of her 20 years of experience and expertise.
A graduate of the famous French Bruno Chikly School, Liliya offers advanced lymph drainage techniques to treat problem areas such as wrinkles, eye lids, acne spots, scars, and broken capillaries. Her work can also help to reduce healing time for pre- and post-surgical procedures and laser patients by detoxifying skin tissue.
Building on her previous work in the skincare field, Liliya deepened her focus when she studied Reiki healing energy, a form of non-physical natural healing energy that works in conjunction with other therapeutic techniques to alleviate physical, emotional, and mental stress while promoting recovery.
Also trained in paramedical aesthetics, Liliya keeps up-to-date with the latest scientific discoveries in skin treatments. One of her specialties is her paramedical pre- and post- surgical facials which dramatically enhance the results of any doctor’s procedures and medical aesthetician’s treatments. If you are considering facial surgery, Botox, fillers, lasers, or medical facials, you should also consider a facial with Liliya to enhance the final result. Liliya’s facials are based on the philosophy of taking care of the skin, utilizing her remarkable healing hands as the main part of her facial. At the same time, she has a unique approach in combining hands-on facials with advanced machine techniques.
In 2009, while in Ireland to complete the “Rising Star Healing System,” Liliya trained at the hands of world-renowned spiritual teacher, psychotherapist, healer, and Instrument of Divine Energy, Derek O’Neill. His teachings widened Liliya’s perspective on the mind-body-spirit connection in effective skin care. “It is not just about your face. It is about how you feel,” she says. “Your skin must reflect and awaken your inner beauty for optimal results to blossom.”
Liliya is also passionate about the importance of exercising and massaging facial muscles to look younger and more attractive. “Perhaps 50 percent of the appearance of aging in the face is a result of tension,” she says. “The more tension, the more wrinkles on our face. If we don’t exercise and massage our face, facial muscles become weak, tense, and flabby. Facial skin becomes dull and sagging.”
She says facial muscles need to “work”—to lift, expand, contract, and receive life-giving oxygen in order to stay healthy, fit, and beautiful. Liliya recommends following facial yoga exercises from the book The Yoga Face by Annelise Hagen, who teaches her popular program at the New York Health and Racquet Club.
By merging the science of skin therapy with the art of healing energy, Liliya ensures every patient leaving her looks good and feels great. Discover why she is one of the most sought-after beauty therapists in New York.
