Statistics show that more men are realizing the importance of skin and body care. As a result, more and more men are visiting spas or following a skin care regime at home. This has lead many manufacturers to research and produce skin care products that are specifically geared to a man’s skin. Consequently, there are now several spas in metropolitan areas that cater solely to men.
In the Greater Toronto Area, a leading men’s spa is located right here in Oakville. Fortelli Salon and Spa has been a preferred destination for the women of Oakville since 2000. While men were always welcome, they didn’t always feel comfortable going for treatments in a predominantly female environment. That is why the owner, Renato, decided to open a men’s spa next door.
Fortelli for Men caters to the masculine cliental with a modern day barber shop look for its salon. Spa treatments for men vary from man-icures to Swedish massage. However, the spa specializes in facials and skin products from men, featuring Jatoman from Italy, among others.
“Men have different skin care needs then women. They have to shave and are often more exposed to the outdoors. Taking care of your skin is just as important if you are a man – to keep it healthy, reduce signs of stress and aging, and to rehydrate moisture that is lost through stress, exercise or exposure to the elements.”
The salon also features a full line of skin care products for men to keep up their skin regime at home. “It is good to have a deep cleansing and full skin analysis done to determine your skin needs. Our trained estheticians can recommend products for everything from acne to irritated skin from shaving. We even have foot care products to treat fungus or cracked heels.”
“Many men are reluctant at first, but soon become converts when they relax and enjoy the treatments and see the visible difference. “ Fortelli also offers monthly specials for men to try new products or services. Men’s spa gift certificates are also available to treat yourself or someone special. You can also visit their website at www.mensalon.ca or call (905) 847-0706.
