Why Men Getting Spa Facials has Become Popular

February 14th, 2014

Is it because men have discovered the health benefits of facials that spa visits have become popular for them?  In these modern times we live in–the age of the “metrosexual–there are plenty of men who know that maintenance of their overall health and appearance actually makes them more attractive.  These progressive types don’t give in to stigmas easily or make gender associations with facials.  Sophisticated men understand they will look and feel fabulous for it, giving them more appeal in their professional lives and amidst the often elusive dating scene.

We all know men age just as women do: premature aging doesn’t discriminate and is not specific to gender.  Aestheticians at premier day spas are fully aware that your face gives the first impression in business circles as well an in the private sphere.  That is why they offer professional anti-aging facials to rejuvenate tired worn skin, while addressing stubborn problem areas that aren’t easily reversed through at-home face care routines.


What facials are best for men’s skin?

The high-paced business world can visibly stress anyone. And with stress men in particular tend to develop deep frown lines around the brow and mouth areas.  Arrested blood circulation from worry can suck the life our of your skin.  Purifying oxygen treatments, applied in tandem with a nourishing botanical serum, can slacken those wrinkles and frown lines while delivering an essential element that jumpstarts blood circulation and cell renewal.

When the skin is oxygenated in this way the face has a brighter healthier look.  Toxins that flood the body, right around the time you join colleagues for happy hour, are easily expelled through this relaxing facial that detoxes the pores.  If not  eliminated from the body and skin these contaminants can degrade overall health.  This facial was designed with that consideration in mind.

Microdermabrasion is an excellent way to shed those thick layers of dead cells that build up and cling to the skin especially during harsh winter months no matter how sensitive.  Men who suffer from razor bumps or ingrown hairs can benefit from the softening effects of this exfoliating facial.  This preventative skincare can lessen the likelihood of this uncomfortable condition as well as the associated flawed visage.

By loosening this old skin you also open the pores, reducing the chance of razor bumps forming and the inevitable blemishes that follow in darker skin.  The moisturizing face care products that are massaged into face following the facial recharge collagen and elastin production that restore youthful vitality.  As a grand finale, the treasure trove of vitamins and minerals found in a daily serum permeate dermal layers to eliminate lackluster appearance in all skin types.
