Probably the last place you want to think of for a spa right now is the Adirondacks, not exactly a sun-drenched area this time of year. However for those of you who love the snow and open air, the Whiteface Lodge, Lake Placid’s first-ever resort spa is offering a special program for hale and hearty men.
For guys who need to perk up their skin, there’s the HydraFacial that helps improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, congested oil skin and leaves skin glowing for weeks with no downtime or discomfort. The treatment is power-packed with antioxidants, peptides and rosacea. Options include a 25-minute hydra dermabrasion, painless extraction, and intense hydration; a 50-minute facial massage and antioxidant mask; and an 80-minute lymphatic and light therapy, with DermaBuilder fine line treatment. The 50- and 80-minute treatments include a take-home kit valued at $140 and can be booked individually or in a series of six monthly facials.
The Modern Man treatment selection is targeted to guys who live and play hard. It consists of five new treatments that include a deep tissue massage that helps release chronic patterns of muscular tension that can lead to pain and structural misalignment; an invigorating sports massage that employs light stretching and various massage techniques to improve range of motion, circulation and muscle strength; and The Outdoorsman – a relaxing, deep cleansing facial that repairs and protects skin damaged by windburn, sun and overexposure to the elements. And if you’re a guy who works with his hands, there’s the Man Hands Soother that exfoliates rough, dry skin while trimming, filing and buffing nails. And for your feet and energizing treatment that combines soothing Epsom salt soak with nail and cuticle grooming, exfoliation, Quench masque and massage.
Complimentary use of the spa facilities is included with all treatments. This means en try to the state-of-the-art health and fitness center, indoor/outdoor swimming pool and hot tubs, and all-day access to the rejuvenating eucalyptus-infused steam room and cedar wood saunas.
