    Facials are one aspect of life where men may actually be more sensitive than women: The electric microcurrent that many skin-care salons use to tone skin and give a lifted effect plays havoc with beards. They’ve solved that problem at Yasmine Djerradine, where ultrasound waves that barely ripple the flesh and help products permeate the skin are used in tandem with moisturizing serums. Pillows, pastels, and a limestone fountain set a North African tone in the reception area. Cool-jazz plays throughout, and extras like a 30-minute upper-back massage make this facial ($120 and up) as soothing as it is revitalizing.
