Men’s Facial San Diego
Gone are the days when skincare is supposed to be a woman’s thing; now, everyone knows that men can also have the love and care their skin deserves. Aside from the over-the-counter (OTC) remedies to treat a certain skin condition, there are also a lot of facial services offered to address their specific skin concerns. Like the usual facial girls have in spas, it also follows a certain procedure. The only difference, however, is that each step is formulated to male needs. The treatment and skincare products applied address skin sensitivity, dullness, and razor burns.
WHAT IS GENTLEMEN’S SKINCARE TREATMENTS?
Most of the men’s skin concern is related to shaving, such as razor-burns, but this may also be caused by frequent outdoor activities, excessive sweating, and aging-related skin conditions. Blackhead removal, facial extraction, microdermabrasion, and chemical peels are just some of the things included in their facial. It may also utilize essential oils and hot towels. Like regular facials, it’s best to have it handled by a reputable company working with certified estheticians. It’s also recommended to schedule an appointment on a regular basis to resolve any underlying skin concerns and improve the overall health of the skin.
Below are some of the skin conditions that gentlemen may encounter:
- Acne – Most men experience breakout during their puberty days; however, such a problem doesn’t just stop even when your voice finally stopped changing. Aside from the hormones, the acne in men is caused by heavy sweating, humidity, use of steroids, and stress. Some may also blame it to poor diet, lifestyle, and hygiene, thus it’s advisable to opt for healthier, cleaner food and regularly wash the face. But, avoid excessive washing as this may only make your condition worse.
- Razor Burn – From an annoying redness in the face up to pimples and infected blisters, razor burn can really damage the skin, thus an immediate professional attention is required. Also, it’s best to practice the right way to shave to avoid irritating rash and discomfort. This involves washing the face with warm water and applying a lubricant, such as a shave gel, before shaving the tiny hair. You can also use a soothing aftershave with Vitamin E to reduce irritation and redness.t
- Sunburn – While sun is essential to survive, too much of it can damage the skin. So before you go out and enjoy gold, be sure to apply sunscreen to avoid getting burn and painful blisters. If it’s too late to apply and you’re already suffering from sunburn, you can opt for topical creams with Vitamin E.

If you’re not sure whether you need professional assistance or not, here are some of the reasons why you should get a facial with us NOW!
- Reduce Production Of Oil
Compared to women, men have a higher level of testosterone – which explains why they produce more oil. When not addressed properly, the sebum may clog your pores and as a result, a breakout may occur. Our facial spa is manned with the right experts who will perform facial extraction to remove acne and blackheads using sterile tools and techniques. While you can surely do this at home, there’s a chance that you are exposing yourself to severe skin damage.
- Smoother Shave
Razor is one of the leading causes of irritation, inflammation, and razor burn for men. Having a facial will help you achieve a cleaner face and pores. We ensure to provide the right combination of masks, moisturizers, exfoliations, and chemical peels (if applicable) so you can resolve the negative effects of shaving. That being said, you can also shave the hair easily because you have a smoother skin.
- Take Home New Learning
Despite the presence of the Internet and new products, nothing can beat learning from an expert. We offer consultation to all our clients so they can learn techniques on how to achieve flawless skin. We can also recommend products that are more effective and compatible with your skin type and condition. But aside from having the chance to ask skin-related questions, you can also take advantage of the strategies we use to address acne and blackheads, such as manual extraction and professional steamers.
FACIAL TREATMENT SERVICES FOR MEN
Blackhead removal or extraction normally lasts around 60 minutes. It begins with a double cleanse and facial steam to get the pores open and ready for the next step. This also removes dirt, makeup, excess oil, and other debris from the skin. This also reduces any discomfort during the process.
During removal, a sterile extraction apparatus is used. Our licensed San Diego estheticians will apply pressure to loosen and remove sebum and dirt from your skin – such as the nose, neck, and check. Once done, a soothing facial cream will be applied to relieve sore in the face.
When you want to achieve a smoother, younger-looking skin, you can opt for chemical peels – such as Jessner’s Peels. This recent advancement removes the damages from the outer layer of the skin. As a result, it reduces facial blemishes, uneven skin tone, wrinkles, and fine lines.
This medium depth peel is mostly beneficial for anyone with oily skin. This is because it reduces excess sebum production and clears clogged pores. This is also advisable for anyone suffering from acne. Our highly-skilled estheticians use a combination of lactic acid, salicylic acid, and resorcinol to achieve rejuvenated skin.
CAN I GET CHEMICAL PEELS EVEN IF I HAVE NO ACNE?
Yes. Chemical peels, such as Jessner’s Peel, will benefit not only those who suffer from acne but also those who want to treat sun damage, skin discoloration, wrinkles, and even scars. However, it’s best to consult a professional first before getting this treatment.
IS IT NORMAL TO SEE FLAKING AFTER A CHEMICAL PEEL? HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
Yes. Flaking and visible exfoliation – or peeling – takes place after 48 to 72 hours and may last for about a week or less. When experiencing this, avoid picking off the peeling skin rather, minimize or control it by using a moisturizer that suits your skin type and condition.
However, some treatment may not produce peeling but this doesn’t mean that it is not effective at all. In fact, the amount of peeling depends on the depth of the peel and your skin condition.
DO I NEED TO AVOID ANYTHING PRIOR TO HAVING CHEMICAL PEELS?
- If you have any medical cosmetic procedures such as cosmetic fillers, laser treatments, etc., be sure to wait until the skin has completely healed before getting a peel.
- If you’re using Retin-A, Tazorac, alpha hydroxyl acids, beta hydroxy acids, or other prescription topical, discontinue using it for at least three days before booking a peel.
- Avoid hair removal creams, waxing, and laser hair removal one week before your scheduled peel.
DOES BLACKHEAD REMOVAL HURT?
For some reasons, blackhead extraction may cause discomfort, however, it can be reduced if the skin is prepared correctly. As Waxing and Skincare by Celeste, we ensure to clean your face and provide enough steam first to minimize, if not avoid, pain.
IS IT NORMAL TO SEE REDNESS ON MY FACE AFTER FACIAL?
Yes, it’s normal to see redness after a facial, especially since extraction is involved. This, along with the chemicals applied to your skin, can cause redness which will subside within the day.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I DO IT?
The frequency of getting a facial depends on various factors – your skin type and condition. If you have an oily skin which is prone to breakouts, clogged pores, and blackheads, it’s best to have a facial treatment at least once or twice a month.
