Smooth Behind

Skin Deep
And Now, a Facial for the Other End
Published: October 5, 2006

Hey slim,” a man called out to Rhonda Walker at a party last week, “you looking really good tonight.”

And why wouldn’t she?

Ms. Walker, 27, heads to the gym five times a week and has gone from a size 22 to a size 12 since last Thanksgiving, losing almost 60 pounds.

“I had a little miniskirt on, some little boots and I felt really confident,” she said.

Still, she didn’t think the attention was a result of her workout regimen or the cut of her skirt. Rather it was because of a regular facial she gets that she says lifts, tones and tightens a part of her that is — well, not her face.

“I don’t want to tell my friends my secret,” Ms. Walker said. “I feel like they might laugh at me.”

Call it what you will — backside, bum or booty — there is skin down there, and in today’s heated spa market, where there is skin, there is treatment.

With the recent fixation on the junk in the trunk, spas are promoting special “facials” for the posterior in Miami, Los Angeles, Minneapolis and Boston, as well as in New York.
