Studies show that being a female costs more than a male. DUH. Us women pay thousands of dollars more over the course of our lives than men to purchase comparable products and we also do more maintenance.
In recent studies, the DCA found that, women’s products on average (across five industries), cost 7 percent more than similar products for men. Specifically:
• 13 percent more for personal care products
A las, I have to point out the maintenance
I consider myself a no fuss gal, but I gotta admit I do spend a little bit of money and time for the upkeep every month.
Every two weeks I get a mani (gel) and pedi.
Facials at least once month
Chemical peel every 6 weeks
Dermatologist appointment (topical scripts, oral antibiotics if needed for break outs)
Hair trim every 6-8 weeks
Laser Hair Removal every 6 weeks
OMG, it adds up.
Most of my friends get their hair dyed, touched up or highlighted every 6 weeks. I’m also at the age where a lot of my girls are getting fillers, Botox and IPL facials. These are services I’ve never ventured into because of the price and right now, I feel like I’ve done a decent job keeping up with the facials and chemical peels.

Last week, I got to spend the evening at their state of the art facility with David. Their ARNPs and PA-C demonstrated tattoo removal, Hydrafacials, Trusculpt System and IPL. They also showcased their Botox, filler and lip injections. What was interesting was their patients not flinching while needles were in their face. I always thought it would be a painful procedure but they’ve been told that they’re the best in the area. One of the ARNPs also ices the patient prior to injecting.
This is something that I’m open to because I truly believe that when you’re in the right hands and do little touch ups, it won’t look as obvious.
This is the Hydrafacial. I’ve been doing these at least 7 years now and I can’t stress how amazing this treatment is. Hydrafacial is patented technology to cleanse, extract, and hydrate which means no painful extractions. Squeezing the skin is awful and not all estheticians know what they’re doing. Not only does the machine gentle extract, it also infuses the skin with serums. It’s quicker, pain free and you get better results compared to the traditional facial.
Couture Med Spa believes in the art of restoring your youthful, natural state. They enable you to maintain a younger, healthier, more vibrant you and do that at a price not normally seen in luxury med spas.
They also carry Glo Skin Beauty.
And a number of facial and body products.
