More Men are Investing in Facials Than Ever Before

Men’s facials are not merely a clever way to make facials sound masculine; they are in fact medically sound treatments that are tailored to the specific needs of male skin. 

Facials for men provide a scientifically backed method of skincare and treatment for men’s skin. It’s a dermatological fact that male skin tends towards a more acidic pH level, produces more sebum, and is generally thicker than female facial skin. 

For these reasons, facial treatments that consider these attributes are designed, focusing on the skin concerns commonly experienced by male skin. 

Men’s facials are officially on the rise, as more men are becoming savvy to treatment options for their skin, and they want to invest in their appearance and well-being. 

More men are getting facials, and this growing trend can be attributed to several factors: 

Increased awareness. With the rise of social media and the availability of information online, people are more aware of the importance of skincare. Men, like women, are now understanding the benefits of regular facials for healthy skin. 

Changing gender norms. Traditional gender norms around masculinity have been evolving, allowing men to be more open to self-care practices. Taking care of one’s skin is no longer seen as exclusively feminine. 

Celebrity influence. Many male celebrities openly talk about their skincare routines, including facials. This kind of visibility can significantly influence other men and improve a feeling of acceptance and safety in having these treatments. 

Professional appearance. In today’s competitive job market, looking one’s best is often seen as an advantage. Clear and healthy skin contributes to a polished appearance, which can be particularly important in professional settings. 

Stressful lifestyles. Modern lifestyles often involve high levels of stress, pollution, and irregular sleep patterns, which can adversely affect the skin. Men are realising that facials can help combat these effects. 

Service offering. There’s a growing number of spas and salons that offer specialised skincare treatments for men. This accessibility makes it easier for men to explore facial treatments. 

Self-care awareness. There’s been a significant shift in awareness of self-care, and, as a very positive result, a global trend toward self-care has emerged. People are recognising the importance of taking time for oneself, and facials are often seen as a relaxing and beneficial form of self-care. 

It’s important to note that these trends might vary across cultures and regions, but overall, the acceptance and practice of in-clinic facial treatments among men is on the rise. 

What to Expect with a Men’s Facial

The Men’s Facial at Contour Clinics: What to expect 

Cleansing 

To begin, your Skin & Laser Therapist will use a few drops of aromatherapy essential oil to promote a state of relaxation and signal the start of the treatment. 

The first part of your facial will be to cleanse the skin, preparing it for the next steps. Your therapist will double cleanse the skin with a medical-grade cleanser and hot towel.  

Exfoliation   

Now that your skin is cleansed, it’s time to exfoliate, using Cosmedix Blueberry Smoothie Peel. This uses active skincare ingredients to break down dead skin cells, dirt and other pore-clogging debris from your skin. Your therapist will use steam therapy to maximise the benefits of this exfoliation. 

Extraction 

Once the skin has softened from the steam and exfoliation, your therapist will perform an extraction treatment using a microcurrent device, gently expelling sebaceous filament, dirt, oil and other impurities. They may also spot-treat large blemishes at this point using manual extraction. 

Lymphatic Drainage

Next, your therapist will perform a mild lymphatic drainage massage designed to de-puff the skin. Using dermatological ice globes, they will begin on the forehead working down the face and neck. These therapeutic ice globes will also help calm any inflammation following your extraction. 

Eye and Face Mask 

You therapist will apply Societé Peptide Eye Masks, followed by the Societé Peptide Mask for the face. This is then left for 10 minutes, allowing the skincare ingredients to fully penetrate your skin and work their deeply hydrating magic.   

Facial Massage 

Meanwhile, your therapist will perform a relaxing 10-minute neck, trapezius and decolletage massage using massage oil. 

Skincare 

It’s time for your eye and face masks to be removed. At this point, you may wish to boost your facial by adding on the option of LED light therapy.

Your facial treatment will be finished with the application of Ilumaé Eye Créme, followed by any skincare steps that your therapist finds suitable for your skin, such as hyaluronic acid serum, moisturiser and SPF.
