With the dark nights getting earlier, it can only mean one thing, it’s time to get our beauty treatments booked in ready for rejuvenation over the winter period. Cold weather brings a multitude of issues, not just frozen fingers and toes, making it one of the most important times of the year to make sure that we nourish our skin. In the past, face creams and home pamper kits were designed for women, but there has been a new surge of male grooming and pamper products seen on the shelves of our favourite drug stores. This is an indication that men are beginning to love a face mask just as much as the women, and rightly so! Many of our clients are men, and their skin needs the same level of care and attention, making facials and massages among favourite treatments. So, if you’re new to the beauty world or want to know what else is out there, here is a guide to the top beauty treatments for men.
The Perfect Beauty Treatments For Men
Life brings many stresses, all of which can affect the appearance of our skin and how confident we feel. Luckily, there are multiple treatments that can help to bring back a youthful glow and radiance in self-confidence. Not only this, but men have insecurities too, some of which can easily be removed or minimised through regular beauty treatments.
As professionals in an array of beauty treatments in Northampton and the surrounding areas, we have a host of solutions to help you feel more confident. Through years of experience, our team has the ability to welcome you to a new treatment and have you leaving our clinic looking fresh and feel confident! Let’s take a closer look at the top beauty treatments our male client’s book in:
Believe it or not, but male waxing has become extremely popular in recent years, and is most common over the summer months and holiday seasons. The most booked in male waxing is on the chest and back, which are the two areas that men with particularly hairy bodies tend to feel the most self-conscious about. This is why waxing has become popular, as it provides men with an easy and cost-effective solution to get rid of unwanted hair ready for their holiday.
One of the main reasons men tend to be put off waxing hair is because of its association with pain. The level of pain will greatly depend on a factor of things, such as whether the hair is sparse, if it is thick, whether it is has been waxed before and your pain threshold. For this reason, it may be more painful for one client than it is for another. The key point to remember is that the more often you get it waxed, not only will you get use the sensation, but the hair will start to thin, making it less painful with every appointment.
In general, waxing hair will provide you with a smooth surface for around 6 weeks, and the more you wax the area, the longer you can enjoy hairless skin! Some of the other many benefits of having waxing include the following:
- An even finish
- Longer-lasting results
- Reduces painful ingrown hairs
- Weakens hair
- No razor burn
- Various waxes to suit multiple skin types
After having waxing complete by our professional team, make sure that you do not apply moisturiser to the treated area, avoid hot showers or baths and sun exposure for around 24 hours. You may also want to wear cotton clothing over the area being treated to avoid any uncomfortable friction. For more information on how to treat the skin after waxing, please take a look at Healthline’s advice.
For those that are not keen on arranging a waxing appointment every 6 weeks, but would still like to take advantage of hair removal solutions that last more than a day or two, then laser hair removal is the perfect solution or you. Unlike other hair removal solutions, laser hair removal is the most effective for long-term results, and has become one of our most popular treatments among women and men in recent years. For men, laser hair removal can be complete on most areas of your choosing, making it ideal for those looking for a more permanent removal on the chest or back area, for example.
Laser hair removal works by applying a laser onto the area, which will then emit light into the skin and absorb the pigment causing it to damage the hair follicle and delay further growth. The number of sessions you require will depend on several things, such as the thickness of your hair and the contrast of colour from your skin to the hair follicle. For example, those with light skin and hair are likely to require more sessions for the laser to target the pigment than those with light skin and dark hair.
Much like waxing, there is a lot of stigma around the pain associated with laser hair removal. However, while uncomfortable, laser hair removal is likely to be significantly less painful than waxing and provides you with longer-lasting results. Most clients find that they can get used to the uncomfortable feeling of laser hair removal in no time, and in our opinion, the pain is well worth the 12 months of smooth and hairless skin.
If you would like to consider laser hair removal in Northampton of the surrounding areas, then why not book in for a consultation with our team? Our team are highly experienced in all treatments, providing you with the knowledge and advice you require to make an informed decision. We would also advise taking a look at Shape’s article for information on what to expect from laser hair removal for a better understanding before your consultation.
Laser hair removal has similar benefits to waxing, but the results can last a lot longer, and you can benefit from smooth skin without the need for constant attention.
- Longest hair removal solution
- Precise targeting
- Fast treatment
- Saves money and time
- No more ingrown hairs
- Improves skin by minimising irritation
After laser hair removal, you can expect slight redness if your skin is sensitive, and if this is uncomfortable, then applying some ice to the area should help to reduce the redness. In terms of aftercare, all you will need to do is make sure that you follow the same advice for waxing; no sun exposure and no hot water or lotion for 24 hours.
Something that often gets left behind when thinking about beauty treatments for men are facials. These are just as important for men, and should be booked in for a treat every month. There is now a selection of facials that you can choose from depending on the results you wish to have. For example, the CBD facial treatment helps to relax you while it works to cleanse and detox the skin. This is perfect over the winter period when your skin is exposed to harsh weather conditions. It can provide you with the youthful glow you need for that little pick me up.
Another fan favourite facial here at New You is the laser carbon peel, which helps to clear pores and exfoliate the skin to give you the boost you’re looking for this winter. Laser carbon peel works by applying a carbon lotion to the skin and then using a laser to break down the carbon into fine particles. This process helps to remove dead skin, excess oils and impurities, all of which can cause breakouts and clogged pores. Our professional laser carbon peel in Daventry is a sought-after solution for many of our male clients, and is the perfect opportunity to treat yourself, and your skin to a much-needed nourishing.
Other facial treatments that can also help to cleanse the skin and provide you with a youthful glow include the following:
Each facial will offer different results and their own host of benefits; however, most facials will come alongside the following benefits:
- Reduces stress
- Gives your skin a deep clean
- Rejuvenates the skin
- Helps with ageing and fine lines
- Improves circulation
- Can help to treat acne
- Exfoliates the skin
- Some can tighten the skin
You may wish to choose a facial depending on the issues you are having with your skin, such as breakouts or under-eye bags. If you are unsure about which treatment is right for you, then My Time has a handy article on how to find the perfect facial for your skin type.
A common issue that causes many men to feel self-conscious is hair loss; this is particularly the case for a young man. However, there is a very easy and cost-effective solution to this issue; scalp micro-pigmentation. This is where our professional team will apply a temporary ink to your scalp, which can give the appearance of stubble. The reason this is the perfect solution for hair loss, is that you can choose to have the whole area treated, or you can choose to have sections treated to give the appearance of thicker hair. Not only this, but the colour of the pigment can also be tailored to your natural hair colour, whether you require a darker or lighter tone.
A concern that many of our clients have is whether the treatment is permanent or painful. Scalp micro-pigmentation is not a permanent solution, and you will require to have it reapplied every 1-3 years depending on how well you care for the area. When applied, clients can expect a sensation similar to applying needle pressure to the surface of the skin, and while uncomfortable, is not necessarily painful.
The most important benefit of scalp micro-pigmentation is that it can provide you with the confidence that you have been looking for and lasts for a long period of time before you require a top-up. Other benefits include:
- Safe solution
- More affordable than other alternatives
- Fairly quick treatment
- Requires little maintenance
- Looks realistic
Unwanted tattoos can have a dramatic effect on your confidence, especially if they are on show. Luckily, there is one way in which you are able to unwind time and remove an unwanted tattoo that you no longer love. Through professional laser tattoo removal, you can easily remove ink from the skin without causing significant scarring or damage. This treatment can be complete on most tattoos, and the darker the tattoo, the easier it is to remove. The reason for this is because, much like laser hair removal, the laser used for tattoo removal targets the pigment to disperse the ink in the skin, causing it to breakdown.
Depending on the size of the tattoo and the colours, you may need a fair few sessions in order to fully remove the pigment. However, when booking in for this treatment, you will have a consultation with our professional team, who will walk you through everything you need to know before making your decision, including the number of sessions they believe you will need. In terms of pain, many clients will compare it to having the tattoo applied as it tends to feel like a small sharp sensation that you get used to overtime.
If you are unsure about the procedure and you like to know more, then Tattooaholic has a detailed guide on what to expect. Alternatively, please feel free to speak with our specialist team about our laser tattoo removal in Daventry and the surrounding areas. Our team can help you to arrange a consultation to speak with a specialist, where they will inform you of the process and whether you are right for the treatment.
One of the main advantages of having your tattoo removed is that it offers a permanent solution to removing an unwanted piece of art. Other benefits to this treatment include the following:
- Less risk of scarring
- You can choose to remove sections of a tattoo
- Most clients are suitable
- Minimal recovery time
