Self-care is for everyone and that’s why we’re focusing on our most popular men’s facials. Whether you’re looking for Father’s Day gifts, unique birthday ideas, or simply just thinking about treating yourself to something special, consider the medi-spa. From facials to massages to hair removal, there’s something for every man. Read more about the most popular men’s treatments below.
Men’s Facials & More: Laser Hair Removal
Unsurprisingly, Laser Hair Removal is easily one of our top five medi-spa treatments for men. Not only does this process result in super smooth skin, but it helps avoid pesky ingrown hairs too – all the more irritating on one’s face. It’s not just ingrown hairs, either. Laser hair removal effectively avoids razor bumps and acne-like breakouts that can be caused by shaving too.
The best part is that the process is 70-90% effective in terms of permanent removal and it only takes six treatments. Our blog on whether or not laser hair removal is worth it (spoiler alert: most likely) is another great resource.
Men’s Facials & More: Microdermabrasion, Peels, Dermaplaning
When it comes to men’s facials, a few rise to the top in terms of function and popularity. First up is Microdermabrasion, which is essentially professional-grade skin exfoliation. It’s one of the most common treatments to enhance overall skin tone and texture, ideal for all skin types and great for tackling acne scars, too.
Our Power Peel is another exfoliation treatment, differentiated by its use of a mixture of Lactic, Beta Salicylic, and Glycolic properties. Ideal for acne-prone and oily skin, Power Peels can help keep anyone’s face looking as youthful as they may feel.
In the world of men’s facials, a third exfoliating procedure that is beloved by men and women alike is Dermaplaning. Men who have been shaving their faces for much of their lives may even feel more comfortable with this procedure due to the use of a straight-edge blade on the face, used to remove dead skin and light peach fuzz.
Men’s Facials & More: Lumecca + Genesis + Forma
Some of our most popular treatments are men’s facials taken to the medi-spa level. Whereas the classic facial is largely a cosmetic procedure, medi-spas combine the cosmetic procedures of aesthetic medical centers with traditional spa treatments like facials. Our Lumecca IPL Facial falls into the medi-spa category thanks to the use of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) photo rejuvenation treatment, which targets hyper-pigmentation and sun damage.
Another medi-spa facial popular among men is the Laser Genesis Facial, which involves – what else? – the use of a laser to treat acne scars, fine lines, and wrinkles. This treatment is also great for targeting active acne. (Learn more about the best facials for acne in general if you’re so inclined.)
If the concern is sagging skin, our Forma Face Sculpting is the ideal choice. Utilizing the Forma device, which uses radio frequency technology to target the deep layers of the skin, this non-invasive process is excellent for loose skin as well as fine lines and wrinkles, including crow’s feet, which men absolutely also get. The Forma Plus Skin Tightening is a similar procedure with slightly more intense or targeted results.
Men’s Facials & More: Emsculpt
Not all medi-spa treatments are actually men’s facials, of course. For the man who loves building muscle and burning fat, consider Emsculpt Body Sculpting. Emsculpt is a noninvasive procedure that uses the only device cleared by the FDA to stimulate muscle growth and fat loss. The technology is essentially able to burn fat cells and define ab muscles through inducing supramaximal muscle contractions. One session equals 20,000 crunches – not bad!
Men’s Facials & More: Body FX
In the same body care category as Emsculpt we have another contender for most popular treatments for men: BodyFX, a noninvasive treatment that targets cellulite (which, just like crow’s feet, also afflicts men). BodyFX also utilizes state-of-the-art radio technology, able to pinpoint fatty deposits in the body and target them using radiofrequency energy, suction, and heat.
