Facials For Men

Taking care of your skin is not just for women – it is equally important for men to prioritize their skincare routine. By taking time to deeply cleanse, moisturize, and protect your skin from the sun, you can combat wrinkles, dryness, sun damage, and more. How do you think leading A-listers like Chris Hemsworth and Brad Pitt maintain such glowing complexions?

So, gentlemen, are you ready to step up your skincare game and start pampering it the way it deserves? If so, keep reading as we dive into some of the best facial treatments for men that address the specific needs of men’s skin and help maintain a healthy, youthful complexion.

Understanding the Skin as an Organ

Before we discuss the different types of facial treatments that can do wonders for men, let’s talk more about the body’s largest organ, the skin! The skin serves as a protective barrier against harmful bacteria, viruses, and pollutants. Men’s skin tends to be thicker and oilier than women’s, making them more prone to acne, congestion, and other skin conditions. When men neglect their skin, it can become dry, irritated, and prone to breakouts.

Choosing the right treatment for your skin, such as facials, peels, and microdermabrasion gives it a boost by providing deep cleansing, exfoliation, and hydration. These treatments can unclog pores, reduce acne, and improve skin tone and texture. Other solutions, such as microneedling, laser, and LED therapy, help to reduce the signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles. By investing in facial treatments, you are investing in your skin’s health and longevity.

What to Expect at a Men’s Facial

Any facial should begin with a consultation to determine your skin tone and requirements. This allows your facialist to examine your skin more closely and discuss any skin issues you may be experiencing. From there, your skincare expert will recommend a treatment plan that best suits your needs and goals.

Next, the cleansing and steaming process begins. This step includes removing any product from the face. Thorough cleansing is done using cotton pads. Warm steam helps loosen up your skin and opens your pores.

Following the cleanse, your facialist will exfoliate your skin. Depending on the facial technique, the exfoliation process can take place before, after, or during the steam. Additionally, your provider will use either a mechanical or chemical exfoliation technique.

Next up is the facial massage. This massage helps stimulate your facial muscles and puts you in a state of deep relaxation. After your massage, your facialist may incorporate an add-on such as a facial peel, fruit jelly mask, LED therapy, or dermaplaning. These add-ons are a great way to boost your facial benefits.

Finally, they will apply toner, serums, moisturizers, and sunscreen for added benefits and protection. By incorporating a regular skincare routine with facial treatments, men can maintain healthy, glowing skin that not only looks good but also feels good. Let’s go through some of the top facials for men.

Icon Facial

Imagine having a single facial that is equivalent to having 77 facials. The Icon Facial does just that! The Ionzyme DF machine is the magic behind the Icon facial, one of the most popular facial treatments. This 60-minute facial effectively lightens, brightens, and tightens your skin and is safe for all skin types.

The electro-sonic device combines pulsed electrical currents and low-frequency sound waves to effectively enhance the penetration of vitamins and active ingredients into the skin. This combination enhances the penetration of skincare ingredients by up to 40 times compared to the manual application of facial ingredients. This cutting-edge facial also stimulates the thickening of the skin and increases collagen and elastin production. So, if you are looking to combat uneven skin tone and texture, deep wrinkles, or dryness, look no further! The Icon facial truly is iconic.

Biologique Facial

Biologique Recherche’s facials are known for their specific massage movements, world-class products, and in-treatment room results. They are completely customizable depending on your skin’s condition and needs. The treatment includes your face, neck, and chest. Each facial starts with manual facial sculpting. This form of lymphatic drainage massage helps stimulate the epidermis and reduces puffiness.

This transformative French facial uses highly concentrated cold-pressed boosters to repair, replenish, and rejuvenate skin health. The luxury treatment also features advanced micro-current technology to stimulate your facial muscles and lift and firm the skin.

Oxygen Facial

If you are looking to pamper your skin before a special event, the Oxygen facial will be your go-to treatment! An oxygen facial uses pure, pressurized oxygen to deliver different serums and nutrients deep into the skin’s epidermis (top layer) and dermis (middle layer). Serums infused with hyaluronic acid and vitamins A, C, and E deeply nourish and hydrate lackluster skin.

Oxygen facials offer countless benefits for all men’s skin types. Oxygen enhances blood flow and eliminates waste and toxins underneath the skin. It also accelerates wound healing, helping reduce inflammation such as acne and blemishes. Additionally, oxygen increases skin cell turnover, which boosts collagen production. Results are instant, so you will leave your appointment with plump, glowing skin. This treatment is also available as an add-on, so you can upgrade your facial treatment with some extra oxygen infusion.

Lactic Glow Facial

Uneven skin tone or a dull complexion got you feeling down? If so, a lactic glow facial may be the perfect treatment for you. This facial uses lactic acid to exfoliate and brighten the skin. Lactic acid is a versatile ingredient that can help improve the texture, hydration, and overall appearance of your skin. Specifically, this alpha hydroxy acid works by gently exfoliating the skin. It helps to remove dead skin cells and unclog congested pores. It also directly targets dark spots, hyperpigmentation, and blemishes. For that glowing complexion you have always wanted, book your Lactic Glow treatment once a month!

Microneedling Facial

Microneedling is another great option to consider if you struggle with uneven skin tone, texture, or acne scars. This treatment is one of the most effective non-surgical approaches to skin rejuvenation. A microneedling facial uses a handheld device with tiny microneedles at the end of it. The device punctures the skin’s surface and creates tiny wounds.

This stimulates the body’s healing response and triggers new collagen and elastin production. Collagen and elastin give your skin its firmness and elasticity. In addition to improving texture, microneedling also helps with skin laxity by increasing skin firmness. You may experience some redness following your session, but there’s no need for recovery time.

Back Facial

Yes, facials are not just for the face! A back facial is a skincare treatment that targets the hard-to-reach area of your back. The process involves cleansing, exfoliating, steaming, extracting impurities, and applying a mask specifically formulated for the back.

There are countless benefits to getting a back facial. These include deep cleansing of the pores, removal of dead skin cells, reduction of acne, and overall improvement in skin texture and tone. The treatment also includes a relaxing massage to promote circulation and relaxation. By getting regular back facials, you can maintain clear and smooth skin on your back, just like you do with your face.

Facial Add-Ons

Facial add-ons are extra services that supercharge your treatment and provide additional benefits to your skin. LED light therapy is a popular enhancement for men’s facial treatments. This FDA-cleared technology harnesses the power of red or blue light to combat skin concerns such as acne and wrinkles. Another popular facial add-on is dermaplaning. This exfoliation technique gently removes dead skin and peach-fuzz facial hair. The result is smooth, glowing skin. A facial peel or mask is probably the most common add-on for men’s facials. Popular options include the Collagen Mask, Alginate Mask, Knesko Mask, and the Vitamin C Micro Peel.

Imagine looking in the mirror and seeing a glowing, healthy complexion staring back at you. With regular facials, that dream can become a reality. By taking care of your skin, you are not only investing in your appearance but also in your overall health and well-being. Facial treatments like chemical peels, laser devices, microneedling, and lymphatic drainage massage are ideal solutions for turning back the clock and improving your skin’s imperfections. These aesthetic treatments are quick, customizable, and safe.
