What Should Men Do at a Spa?

When men first come to a spa, it’s very often that it’s for some type of massage. And that makes sense – there’s something so relaxing about a professional massage that really gives you a reset. But it’s not the only way to treat yourself.

There are all sorts of services that men choose from at medical spas, many of which offer truly transformational results for the body. From defining muscles to clearing acne, reducing stretch marks, and getting rid of excess fat, men have options. So, let’s go through them!

Emsculpt NEO Helps Men Build Muscle

Just like it does for women, Emsculpt NEO is highly effective in toning and defining men’s muscles for a transformational result without surgery. It addresses both fat and muscle with HIFEM+ energy and radiofrequency in one 30-minute, completely non-invasive treatment.

Reducing fat by about 30% and increasing muscle by 25% (on average), Emsculpt NEO targets areas such as:

  • Abdomen
  • Buttocks
  • Arms
  • Calves
  • Thighs

Many male patients like to look at the differences between CoolSculpting and Emsculpt NEO before making any decisions, as both are quality treatments. The main decision-maker with these two options is what you’re looking to target for a goal. Emsculpt NEO focuses on both defining muscles and minimizing fat, while CoolSculpting primarily offers fat reduction.

HydraFacials Sooth Irritated Skin & Shrink Pores

Everyone gets skin irritation from time to time. For some of us, large pores, inflamed skin, and oil control are a regular occurrence. These issues can be tough to handle alone, which is why skin care specialists are ready to help. The HydraFacial is a popular solution for many patients since it is customizable to individual concerns and can:

  • Increase skin firmness
  • Clear the complexion
  • Hydrate and brighten the skin
  • Minimize fine lines and wrinkles
  • Even skin tone and texture
  • Shrink large pores

Many men have found that HydraFacials are worth it for their soothing qualities. From smoothing bumps and reducing irritation to cleaning pores and lifting dirt before replenishing nutrients and moisture that the skin needs, you really can’t go wrong.

Can Men with Beards Get HydraFacials?

Absolutely. Depending on how much of your face you’d like to treat, your specialist can perform the HydraFacial on part of the face around your beard or the entire face. However, if a man prefers to treat the whole face, the beard must be shaved cleanly and entirely.

It’s important that you achieve a close shave, and don’t wait until right before the appointment to do so. For best results, shave before the day of, or at least a few hours before your treatment. This will offer the best surface for your provider to work with to offer the most benefits.

Cryo T-Shock Gets Rid of Fat & Cellulite

Since there are structural differences between men’s and women’s skin, with men’s being thicker, not all treatments work the same for men as they do for women. However, Cryo T-Shock changes the game with this, as it has specific settings to help men target:

  • Crow’s feet and forehead lines
  • Sagging jowls and soft jawlines
  • Double chins
  • Excess belly fat
  • Man boobs

It’s common for men to see cellulite forming along the thighs, buttocks, and stomach areas. Cryo T-Shock reshapes the body, removing both cellulite and unwanted fat to help you define yourself and reach your goals.

Is Cryo T-Shock Better Than CoolSculpting?

When patients consider Cryo T-Shock, they tend to also look into CoolSculpting, much like they would with Emsculpt NEO. Unlike CoolSculpting, Cryo T-Shock doesn’t limit the treatment area, meaning you can achieve body contouring results in larger areas of the body.

There is also a difference in your results timeline. Where CoolSculpting takes months to see results, Cryo T-Shock results tend to show within a matter of weeks. While that might not be the deciding factor for many, if you have an event coming up that you’re preparing for, faster results might be crucial. Don’t worry if you’re unsure about which treatment to choose, the right med spa team will offer tips and advice, guiding you to find a solution that works for your body, timeline, and budget.

Men Get Stretch Marks, Too! Med Spas Can Help

Much like weight gain, muscle loss, and other concerns that so many of us have, stretch marks don’t care about gender. And they’re among the most challenging skin conditions to get rid of. While preventative measures are the best way to avoid stretch marks, they are not always possible or fully effective.

Here Do Guys Usually Get Stretch Marks?

Skin can stretch beyond its elasticity in different locations on the body, making stretch marks appear red, purple, or white in color depending on how far along the scarring is.
There are several areas where stretch marks show up commonly in men, including the following:

  • Back
  • Shoulders
  • Calves
  • Thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Abdomen
  • Biceps

Whether they show up from rapid weight gain, a growth spurt, or being regularly active, these lines and streaks along the skin can be frustrating.

That’s where professional treatments come in. Of course, there are some things you can try at home, like hyaluronic acid, retinoids, and certain herbs, to help reduce the appearance of stretch marks. But the most effective way to see visible results is finding the right provider for an icoone treatment.

Treat Scars & Stretch Marks with icoone

Without invasive surgery or recovery time, icoone helps men and women reduce wrinkles, minimize stretch marks, and leave the skin smooth. Even the most delicate skin can receive icoone treatment, as it works gently (yet effectively) to stimulate deep subcutaneous tissue all throughout the face and body.

Through microstimulation, icoone increases blood flow to the treatment area to restore skin. In some cases, patients can combine icoone with laser services that enhance the results. No matter what, most patients see results after just one treatment. Better yet, those who choose to bundle multiple sessions will notice that the benefits keep building with each appointment.

Help your skin produce the collagen that it needs and you’ll love your healthy, vibrant results.
