Live-snail SPA (4 pictures)
SPA in Tokyo offers its clients the first live-snail facial treatment in Japan.
Snail slime started to be recognized for its potential in beauty treatments in the 1980s, when Chilean snail farmers noticed that their skin healed quickly and left little scarring when they gathered snails for escargot. It is primarily marketed as an anti-aging cream and acne solution, as well as a treatment for scars and burns.
One hour costs $240.
