What is a Men’s Facial?

Spas are not just for women anymore, these days more and more men are seeking out spa treatments! Some spas cater exclusively to men with high-tech amenities like flat-screen TVs that play sporting events, wireless Internet access, and IPod docking stations. Men’s spas may have sleek interiors that incorporate stainless steel, leather, and wood and have full barber shop facilities and bars where men can unwind with snacks like chips and even beer!
When you go:
Facials for men are specifically formulated to male needs, which are often shaving-related, such as razor burn, or other conditions like skin sensitivity and dullness. There are also men’s facials that target skin roughened by spending time in the great outdoors and ones that are tailored to acne, excessive sweating, living in a city, and skin conditions related to aging. Deep-pore cleansing, moisturizing, exfoliation, toning, and vigorous facial, neck, and shoulder massages are sometimes included during men’s facials, which usually last from 30-minutes to a few hours long. Different products are used for men’s and women’s facials, and when essential oils are used, more traditionally masculine scents are the norm and masks, lotions, and hot towels are often utilized. Men may need to schedule a series of facial treatments to see optimal results.
Men may also want to consider scheduling an appointment for a spa facial before their wedding day so they look their best when walking down the aisle.
After your treatment:
After their treatments, men should ask their spa therapists about special skin-care products that are formulated to treat skin concerns that affect men and any skin-care regimens that they can follow on their own at home.
Other popular spa treatments targeted to men could include massages particularly modalities tailored to sports like golf, laser hair removal, hair care, shaving services, microdermabrasion, sunless tanning, men’s manicures and pedicures, and waxing.
