Sure, facials aren’t exactly known as the most manly way for guys to kick back. But with the Spa at Ballantyne’s new guy-focused “Gentleman’s Favorites” menu, even the most masculine of men are getting in on the fun.

The menu features treatments designed specifically for the guys including the Gentlemen’s Pedicure and Manicure, as well as several customized massages. But the standout indulgence is the menu’s new Distinguished Male Facial ($115). The 50-minute treatment begins in a dimly lit room where a gentle exfoliating cream is used to cleanse your face before a light masque is applied to restore moisture. “We specialize in customization,” says spa director Alicia Howell.”Our Gentleman’s Favorites menu is designed to appeal to men while incorporating products specifically created for them.”

Still not convinced this is the treatment for you? Consider that the treatment ends with a soothing head and neck massage, guaranteeing that both you and your face leave refreshed and rejuvenated.www.theballantynehotel.com/Amenities_Spa
