The Adolphus Hotel spa offers great facials and massages for men along with picturesque downtown Dallas views. The new Dallas location of Woodhouse Spa in Mockingbird Station has plenty of gentleman-focused spa treatments. A fter landing back in Dallas in lateI was fortunate to have a friend give me a referral to the amazing Alexis Karavas. I try and get in to see her twice a year when my face is feeling weathered and slightly sagging. On my most recent visit, I asked her some things about how she treats male versus female clients.
These guys are active. Since we are in Dallas and inundated with the sun — using an SPF is crucial! Men have thicker, tougher and oilier skin so it tends to get congested easily — so a good exfoliation for them is usually needed. Spa Adolphus at the famed downtown Dallas hotel of the same name offers high-end treatments specifically tailored to gentlemen as well. The treatment is a deconstructed cocktail, spa-style, with earthly minerals blended with essences of Grapefruit, Black Pepper and Angostura Bitters.
It begins with a calm mind inhalation and energy balancing ritual to soothe the spirit and settle into deep relaxation, utilizing rehydration neroli water, a lavender eye pillow and the rose porfyr stone placed on the heart chakra. The earthly minerals then perfectly polish away dry skin during a body polish treatment.
A warm-stone back, neck and shoulder massage follows to address any stress or tension. It is finished when you are wrapped in a warm cocoon and treated to an incredible foot and pressure point scalp massage. I visited with Sara Long, spa manager, to learn more.
Great destinations and treatments for savvy gentlemen
My first appointment for my V Spa afternoon was for a body scrub. It was a lot like a massage, but instead of lotion, a cream with abrasive but still soothing particles was used. The room in which this treatment is done has a shower inside for washing off when finished.
My body definitely felt clean and rejuvenated and I would probably be interested in getting something like this done annually in light of all of the dead skin that seems to accumulate. One of the additional benefits that many spas located in high-end hotels offer is the use of their fitness facilities which often come with extensive workout equipment, saunas and pools. The gym has vast selection of cardio equipment and free weights and machines. I was happy to hear that Woodhou se Spa was opening amid the pandemic at Mockingbird Station.
I spent most of my afternoon there and never once did I bump into another customer that day — all doors remained closed and no one was using the lounge area. Inspired by the Harry Styles of the world, I toyed with the idea of getting a festive color on my nails.

Alas, I went classic and safe with a simple buff and clear polish. That is what I tried and I thoroughly enjoyed my hour of grooming and pampering.
My specialist shared that he gets many repeat clients and is finding more and more retired men coming in regularly for a variety of treatments. Apparently, quite a few sports stars stay at the Hotel Crescent Court and then utilize the health club. As a result of frequent requests and the popularity of the cryo trend, they have recently purchased a cryosauna. I took a whirl in the space-age look contraption and have to say I was impressed.
After stripping down to my workout shorts I was asked to put on socks and gloves. Some of the touted benefits credited to cryotherapy include pain and inflammation management, toxin removal, increased immune functions, improvement in skin elasticity and quicker workout recovery time.
I have to say that after my three minutes I was ready to my workout and the next day my muscles were less sore than they would normally be after a few hours in the gym. Once again, lounge areas at most spas seem to be closed or not being used as frequently as in years past. However, I did check out the whirlpool spa, which I had entirely to myself. To sum up, my advice for spa visits would be at last two to three facials a year to keep skin healthy and nourished.

For body treatments, perhaps once or twice with one of them scheduled before the start of summer Vilebrequin swim trunk season. Finally, nails need more regular attention. A manicure every couple of weeks and then pedicures regularly in the warmer months especially if you are planning on rocking some Gucci or Prada sandals. Some other spa options in that offer gentlemen-specific treatments or menus that seemed user-friendly for men include:.
