Men of Washington who want to glisten, here’s some good news. With the opening of W Men, D.C. is getting a dermatologist that’s just for guys.
Washingtonian bills K Street’s W Men as “the world’s first clinical practice dedicated to men’s dermatology and advanced cosmetic treatments.” But will this dermatologist be like all the old-fashioned girly ones, in that it employs women? Aww, hell no.
“In some ways, when men come in, they’re happy with the services, but it’s like walking into the gauntlet. All of our doctors and nurses are female. Men just know this is more of a female atmosphere.”
The staff at W Men will be an all-male three-person team. Services will include Botox injections, laser-assisted hair removal and NeoGraft hair transplantation, laser therapy, tattoo removals, and body sculpting to remove fat—all services that Alster says are popular among her male patients. Also available: laser treatment to get rid of sweat glands in the armpit.
Natch. As Dr. Tina Alster, founder of the Washington Institute of Dermatologic Laser Surgery, tells Washingtonian: “Men will have a place to call their own.”
