World’s Wackiest Facials… Snails and Smacks!

At The Laser Lounge, we love knowing that we can achieve REAL results for our clients with corrective skin corrective treatments such as Peels, Microdermabrasion, DMK Enzyme Therapy, Clinical Skin Needling and IPL Photo Skin Rejuvenation! But I bet you didn’t know that there are some WACKY facials out there that are taking over the beauty industry worldwide.

The ‘Snail Facial’, is the new craze in Japan and in the UK, being the latest thing in beauty. This treatment, which was pioneered in Tokyo, involves having three snails slither up and down your face in order to excrete their ‘slime’ onto your skin. It has been said that “Snail Mucus” contains natural antibiotics as well as hyaluronic acid, which exfoliates and hydrates the skin. It may sound weird, but clients are paying up to 50£ (around $85 AUS$) to experience the creepy crawly’s make their way around the face!

Apparently a good “smack” can also go a long way for the face, when it comes to reducing the appearance of wrinkles and saggy skin! A Thai beauty treatment known as ‘face-slapping’ is the technique in moving the muscles and fat around by slapping the face. For $350, you can experience this face-slapping facial, which is over 100 years old, as an alternative to anti-wrinkle injectables and dermal fillers! The founder of the first face-slapping clinic in Thailand, Tata, also claims that the treatment can dilate blood vessels and increase blood flow, remove free radicals and toxins as well as stimulate collagen to improve skin quality.  If you watched Hamish and Andy’s Asia Gap Year, you also will have noticed Tata can also work her magic on the “glutes”!
