How are facials for men different compared to women’s facials?
Men’s skin are thicker compared to women. Men are not used to a beauty regime / routine of cleansing, toning and moisturizing diligently (daily). Over time build up of such dead skin cells would dull the complexion and pores would also be blocked by the layers of keratinized cells. This condition is quite common for a lot of men thus it is not unusual if a great number of men suffer from acne, pimples and other blemishes. Most facials for men address this problem. The focus is more on cleansing, exfoliation, toning and moisturizing. Congestions and blemishes from these conditions are treated and monitored and once the skin clears up, the clients are advised to adhere to a daily aftercare regime. For women, the issues are more specific e.g. hyperpigmented skin, premature aging, slackened skin etc. Women are more likely to adhere to a beauty routine and the issue of coarse thickened skin is quite rare.
Why do I need facials?
A regular facial routine is more about skin health and maintenance than it is about luxury or pampering, although many do find it to be a relaxing, enjoyable experience. Facial services help increase circulation and stimulate the skin. They can also help slow down premature aging and drastically improve conditions such as acne, redness and Rosacea. Facials are a great preventative treatment to help you beat wrinkles before they occur, and can also help you achieve lighter, brighter, younger-looking skin. In addition to healthier skin, many men enjoy regular facials to help minimize irritation, redness, ingrown hairs, and razor burn associated with shaving.
Should I shave right before my facial?
Please don’t. If you are having a morning facial, feel free to shave before bed, and if you are having an evening facial, we are happy for you to shave first thing in the morning. Remember, shaving is a form of exfoliation and we wouldn’t want to irritate your skin further.
Will my skin be red or irritated after my facial?
Slight redness is normal after a facial, especially if you’ve received any sort of chemical exfoliant such as a glycolic or an alpha hydroxy acid, or received a large amount of extractions. Slight irritation may be experienced during these instances, however it should not continue after your facial treatment has been completed. Certain skin types, including those who tend to be more sensitive, may be prone to experiencing more redness post treatment.
How soon will I start seeing results from my facial?
Some people see results immediately, and your skin should feel different right away. The skin feels, clean, smooth, hydrated, and reflects a new level of health that’s visibly noticeable. If the skin has more advanced long-term needs, such as treatment of skin aging, acne or hyper-pigmentation caused by hormonal fluctuations or sun damage, results may not be immediately visible; however, skin health will continue to improve as you follow the advice of your esthetician, and continue your home-care regimen.
