Facials in Unexpected Places
Facials do wonders for complexions and for creating loyal clients. These same methods and skincare products can rejuvenate other less prominent areas, as well, as a few spas prove with new treatments. The Shiney Hiney ($65, 30 minutes) treatment is new on the menu at Skin by Molly (Brooklyn, NY) and helps clients perfect their rearview for the beach or Instagram's latest craze, the #belfie. This treatment features a form of microdermabrasion, a peel, and a steam on the tush and upper back of the thigh. "Hey, skin is skin, I got no judgment," says Molly Lamb, esthetician at Skin by Molly. "Acne can flare up anywhere." The Fanny Facial at Smooth Synergy (New York City) includes a three step process to firm, detox, and smooth the derriere using a papaya body scrub and microcurrent device followed by an all-over spray tan. For clients seeking attention on even more intimate areas, the Brazilian Facial ($85) at Strip Ministry of Waxing (multiple locations) treats acne, in-grown hair, and dehydration in the bikini area and is ideal for post-waxing.
Does your spa extend facials to other areas and would your clients be on board for a derriere boost?
