What to Know Before Your First Men's Facial, Manhattan, New York

Facials are a relaxing, rejuvenating treatment that can do wonders for your skin. If you’ve never experienced one of these invigorating spa treatments, you may be wondering what to expect. New Paradise Men’s Spa in New York, NY, offers a broad array of decadent treatments from massages to men’s facials. Here, their team of skilled estheticians explains four things you should know before your first appointment. 

4 Things to Know Before Your First Men’s Facial 

1. Shave the Morning of Your Appointment 

Shave your face and neck the morning of your appointment. Estheticians may avoid areas with excess hair or stubble because it can irritate their hands during the massage. The exfoliating treatments will enhance your future shaves by preparing your skin to release ingrown hairs and slough dead skin cells. 

2. Avoid Exfoliants 

mens-facial-new-york-NYExfoliation is an essential part of a healthy skin care regimen. However, you shouldn’t exfoliate every day, as this could irritate the skin, making it prone to various issues. Most facial treatments involve some exfoliating treatment. Exfoliants used in facials are highly effective at removing dead skin; however, if you’ve exfoliated within the previous four days, you may experience redness and irritation. Also, if your skin is sunburnt or irritated the day of your appointment, you may need to reschedule. 

3. Be Prepared to Discuss Your Top Concerns 

Before the treatment begins, your esthetician will talk with you about your skin care routine, concerns, and goals. Be prepared to discuss your top three skin care concerns, such as acne, wrinkles, or dryness. The technician may recommend particular treatments to meet your needs and skin type. 

4. Slight Discomfort Is Normal 

Facials are not considered painful procedures, but it is normal to experience mild discomfort during the treatment. Depending on the treatment, the esthetician may incorporate blackhead extractions or deep exfoliation, which can be mildly uncomfortable. However, if it becomes intensely painful, let your esthetician know.
