Yes, I was on vacation and was convinced to go to the spa and have a Gentlemen’s Facial. As a Plastic surgeon with his own Medispa- the ySpa, I have only had 2 facials in my life. I had always felt that I did not have skin issues, I avoided the sun, and washed with a good low residue soap, so a facial was an unnecessary luxury that I did not need. I was wrong!
The esthetician was excellent, and attentive. The science behind the process is sound, and it was amazingly relaxing. It is incredible that a 45 minute treatment can be so reenergizing. And the results were immediately visible.
My skin felt cleaner than ever, and my complexion was drastically better. The moment I looked in the mirror, my skin just appeared healthier and more youthful. Touching it, it was so smooth and refreshed that I was blown away.
I have had 4 years of college, 4 years of medical school, General Surgery training, and Plastic Surgery training, and I just realized that facials are actually not just a pampering process. I will definitely go more regularly, and recommend to all my patients, man or woman, to do so as well.
Come on men, embrace the modern era. Facials are in.
