What Men Should Expect at Their First Facial, Manhattan, New York

Facials come in a wide variety of options to suit every skin type; however, most are designed to cleanse, exfoliate, moisturize, and unclog pores. If you recently booked a men’s facial for the first time, prepare yourself for pampering by learning what you can expect. The best treatments leave you with brighter, clearer, more hydrated skin.

A Beginner’s Guide to Getting a Men’s Facial

1. Skin Care Questions

The first part of a men’s facial involves discussing your skin care needs and why you booked the spa session, such as to remove dead skin cells or reduce an acne outbreak. Ask your aesthetician as many questions as you want during this initial consultation, including what practices are best for your skin type.

2. Cleansing

men's facialAfter you discuss any skin or medical conditions you have, your aesthetician will have you lie down on a padded spa table or chair. A towel may be used to wrap your hair depending on its length. Once you are ready, the specialist will gently cleanse your face with a product suited to your skin type to remove dirt and excess oil.

3. Steaming & Extraction

The next part involves steaming to open the pores for extraction. Your aesthetician removes blackheads and whiteheads using his or her fingers or a special tool. In either case, your specialist’s hands should remain gloved at all times. Extractions can be mildly uncomfortable but do not last long. This action is usually followed by astringent application to close the pores.

4. Massage & Specialty Services

Most men’s facials end with a relaxing massage. Your specialist will go over your face, neck, and shoulders and apply moisturizer to leave you feeling refreshed. Depending on what you select, you will likely receive additional treatments after your steam and before your massage, such as exfoliation to remove dead cells or a mask specifically for your skin type.
