What is a men’s facial?
Men’s skin and women’s skin differ in a few key areas. For instance, men’s skin is 25% thicker, has a higher collagen density, produces more sebum oil, and appears to be better hydrated. That’s why facials tailored specifically to men’s skin exist. Men’s facials are formulated to the unique needs of men’s skin and usually deal with problems men commonly face, such as razor burn and ingrown hairs, dullness, and sensitivity. Some target skin that has been damaged by the elements like sun and wind, some target acne, and some target aging. If essential oils are used, they generally are infused with “masculine” scents—think musk and cedar, not sirloin steak.
What happens during the treatment?
An esthetician deeply cleanses skin before exfoliating away dead skin cells, steaming open pores, performing extractions to clear individually clogged pores, and applying a toner. The facials may include a vigorous face, neck, and shoulder massage, and they often conclude with the application of a customized mask and men’s skincare products.
How long does the facial take?
Men’s facials generally last 30–60 minutes.
Each facial includes a skin diagnostic, cleansing, softening of the skin with steam, hot moist towels, exfoliants and soothing moisturization.
Benefits of facials include:
- Increase of cell metabolism to improve overall skin tone and texture
- Improves circulation and skin’s inner glow
- Addresses premature aging and wrinkles with targeted, efficacious products
