In recent years there has been an increasing demand for men’s spa treatments, and the market has responded. Not only are men’s spa treatments more widely available and suited for their unique needs, but more and more men-only spas are popping up across the country.
Watch the video below for a quick run down, learn why pampering is important for men, and then keep reading to learn more about the offerings of men’s-only spas.
These spas provide services to men only, in an environment where they are less likely to feel self-conscious. The trend encourages men to participate in self-care and to pamper themselves, helping them to relax, reset, and rejuvenate.
Men’s Spas Soar in Popularity
Not too long ago, men accounted for just 10% of consumers in the spa industry. In recent years that number has soared to nearly 50%, one study shows. The most common request? Massages, followed by pedicures, facials, and body scrubs.
It’s not surprising that most men report visiting a spa to help them relax and relieve stress.
Spa Treatments Designed for Men
While most spa treatments are unisex, beneficial for both men and women, men-only spas cater services formulated especially for men. Facials have been developed with the different texture and skin needs of men in mind, based on their facial hair.
Skincare routines for men are especially important. Many men-only spas offer treatments to address the targeted concerns of men regarding aging, acne, and preventing ingrown hairs.
Waxing treatments are also designed to meet men’s specific requests, such as manscaping, nose hairs, chests, and backs. There are specialized “Barber Spas,” where men can receive full facial treatments along with an expert shave, and hand and foot treatments designed to address tough calluses on hands and feet.
