Getting a facial treatment isn’t just about being “pampered” or feeling relaxed. While those are all perks, facial treatments actually benefit patients by clearing out the dirt and grime and improving the appearance of their skin. Some dermatologists even recommend men getting different men’s facial treatments more so than women! Learn why men should get facial treatments and the different ones that Sculpt MD offers for our patients.
3 Benefits of Men’s Facial Treatments
While you may not admit it, men pay attention to their body and health more than they would like. Dermatologists suggests that facials are just as important for men as they are for women – if not more! Here are some of the tops reasons that men should get facials.
- Helps unclog pores and reduce pore size
Men have rougher skin and larger pores, which creates more visibility and high exposure of dirt and grime. Due to the higher levels of testosterone than women, men also produce more oil than women do. In combination with larger pores, this can lead to clogged pores, blackheads, and pimples.
Facials can help unclog those pores and reduce pore size. It can help avoid further skin problems like skin tags, age spots, breakouts, and other dilemmas. Even if a man suffers from dry skin, there are still facials that can help moisturize. That’s why seeing an esthetician is so important for men, too. They will help you determine the best treatment for the concerns you’re looking for.
- Smoother shaving experience
No matter how often a man is shaving, his skin will still suffer the consequences of a razor like irritation, razor burn, and inflammation. Facial treatments can help address these shaving side effects and leave behind smoother skin. The smoother your skin, the better shave you’ll get.
Part of a facial treatment will also include exfoliation, which can help prepare the skin to release any ingrown hairs. That means no more irritating ingrown hairs turning into pimples or other noticeable marks.
- Skin care education
A professional esthetician makes it their business to learn about your skin and how to address the problems that concern you the most. If a man knows nothing about skin care and how to care for his skin, they can teach him how to best care for his face. They can suggest different facial treatments, professional products, and how to use them all.
Having a regular skin care routine after a facial treatment is important. Overall, improving your skin’s appearance can help boost confidence and self-esteem.
