For men, an aesthetic treatment like a facial can perhaps seem like a pampering extravagance meant only for women. But there are a wide range of benefits that a facial can provide for men as well as women. A men’s facial is designed specifically to address the needs of men’s skin. A facial for a man can be customized to target acne, signs of aging, razor burn, and even ingrown hairs. For men who are interested in having a facial, they may be concerned about leaving our med spa smelling too feminine if essential oils are used. However, men’s facials at Perfect Med Spa are designed to pamper our clients, while infusing their facial experience with scents that will enhance the way they feel. We understand that men’s faces require unique attention to help their faces feel hydrated and relaxed.
For men without a full beard, it is generally recommended that you shave 6-8 hours prior to your appointment. This will ensure your aesthetician can access every part of your face and provide you with the total facial experience you deserve. If you’d prefer to keep your beard intact, that’s totally fine, but you should know that your facialist will likely avoid this area of your face during your session. If you do shave prior to your facial, it will allow your aesthetician to exfoliate and cleanse this often-overlooked part of your face. A facial massage and steam can stimulate blood flow in this area and help open your pores to prevent ingrown hairs as your beard grows back.
A facial can be customized to address a wide range of skin concerns. Some of the most common issues addressed by aestheticians include clogged pores and acne, fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage and hyperpigmentation, as well as uneven skin tone and texture. Prior to your facial, your clinician will ask you questions about your skincare regimen and what specific issues you would like to address. A basic facial session will include exfoliation, cleansing, and hydration that will improve the appearance of your skin immediately, as well as provide you with a revitalized canvas for your at-home skincare routine to build upon. Your facialist can answer any questions you may have about the types of products you might want to incorporate on a daily basis to keep your skin happy and healthy now and long into the future.
There are a few specific ways that men’s skin is unique. It typically has a higher collagen density than women’s and produces a greater amount of oil. Every time you shave your beard, you are exfoliating away the top layer of skin, but a facial can provide exfoliation on the upper part of your face. This helps to ensure appropriate cell turnover, so you can enjoy clear skin and improved texture. Once you schedule your first facial and you notice the improved feeling, you will likely decide to schedule another because the noticeably softer and clearer skin can help you feel more confident every day. Every man should be able to reap the benefits of a relaxing and targeted facial session. At Perfect Med Spa, we believe that men in NYC deserve targeted skincare designed to meet their unique needs. Call us today to schedule your men’s facial and take the time to pamper yourself and your skin.
