Our History

Face Place has been Hollywood’s best kept secret for nearly 50 years. Founded in 1972, Face Place immediately became a celebrity haven, developing a cult-like following for those wanting clean, clear, rejuvenated skin.

Our Signature Facial Treatment, also known as the iderm Deep Skin Ionization Process was first introduced in 1937 by Dermaculture. Dermaculture was founded by Dr. Paul Meminger, a scientist and chemist who was a pioneer in skin technology. Dr. Meminger pioneered the use of electric current to introduce vitamin rich solutions to the deep layers of the dermis. His research resulted in the development of the iontophoresis/galvanic treatment known today as iderm which offers dramatic results to all types of skin.

The iderm Facial Treatment takes a clinical approach, combining skilled extraction techniques with galvanic current to deliver improved skin tone, firmness, fewer lines and a clearer complexion. The iderm proprietary process has also proven extremely effective in the medical arena where it is recommended for pre and post laser and surgical procedures to re-hydrate the skin and boost the healing process. Equally important has been the development and evolution of our line of facial products targeted to meet the needs of both men and women.

In 2005, we brought the expertise of our West Hollywood clinic to New York City. In 2015, we opened the first Face Place clinic outside the U.S. in the Sense Spa at Rosewood London and in 2019, a second London location was opened in the Harvey Nichols department store, located in Knightsbridge.

After a successful operating relationship which began in 1972, Face Place and Dermaculture decided to formalize the synergies from their strategic partnership by merging the two companies in early 2020. Today, the iderm Deep Skin Ionization Treatment is available in treatment centers across the U.S., the UK and EU.

Face Place West Hollywood has expanded its services to include medical aesthetic procedures including Botox, fillers, photofacials and laser treatments, and a full menu of facial and body waxing for both women and men.
