Facials for Men

Let’s be realistic. When we think of facials, purification, exfoliation, and deep cleansing of the pores, we usually think of women getting these treatments. Truth be told, however, men can and should benefit from them, too. You see, skincare is not reserved for one gender. Rather, it is really for everyone who has, well, a face! Together, our 7Q Spa specialists can help you move away from the “facials are only for women” idea and towards the “facials are for everyone” reality.

ABOUT FACIALS

Facials are a type of skincare treatment that is used for general skin health and maintenance, as well as specific types of dermatological conditions. There are various types of facials available to the public and can be provided depending on each person’s needs.

WHAT HAPPENS DURING A FACIAL

After your skin type has been assessed and you have discussed your needs and concerns with our staff, the fun begins. For starters, creams, lotions, dirt and residue are removed from your face with a skin-sensitive cleanser. After your skin dries, it is reassessed in order to determine the plan of care that is right for you.

Once step one is complete, the exfoliation begins. Dead skin cells are removed gently with a scrub or steam that helps open the pores. During an extraction of debris from your pores, blackheads, pimples, and other forms of acne are cleansed and removed. You will receive a facial massage after this step is complete, in order to increase the circulation of your lymphatic system. Last but not least, you may receive a clay or other type of mask that helps further treat your skin and then, a signature serum that helps moisturize your face. Not only is a facial therapeutic, it really feels good, too!

MEN AND FACIALS

Men are ideal candidates for facials and can learn so much about how to improve their skin. For starters, men typically have very oily skin that collects dirt and clogs pores. Though testosterone is usually the cause of this excess oiliness, our staff can also guide and support you if your skin is dry, too.

With a cleaner face that has been massaged and exfoliated, men are more likely to have an easier time shaving, later on. Repeated strokes of a razor can create pimples and scarring that become more prone to cuts and irritations as you shave. When these sores and inflamed marks are treated and then softened, you can enjoy a smoother, less painful shave, no matter how close you get.

And for all those times you saw a commercial for men’s skincare and were afraid to ask what you should be using on your face, a facial allows you the time to relax, enjoy, and ask about your skincare privately.

There’s no need to be afraid of getting a facial, guys. Contact 7Q Spa to book an appointment for a facial today.
