There are numerous skin care conditions out there and even more treatments designed to help them. Whether these treatments work for you or not can depend on all kinds of things, from your skin condition to your skin type. Below is a list of some of the best skin care treatments around, some might seem strange, but if they’re good enough for the rich and famous…
Vampire facials are not for the squeamish – if you faint at the sight of blood, you should avoid them at all costs. In this type of facial, an esthetician draws your blood, then injects it back into your face. This is said to spark production of collagen and elastin which can help to give you a more youthful glow.
There are apparently many detoxifying benefits of leech therapy. Leeches are applied to you and they suck blood from your skin while releasing enzymes that are supposed to remove toxins.
Microneedling can be used on numerous parts of the body, including the face, neck, and chest. Using a sterilized device, the practitioner will apply a series of controlled wounds beneath the skin’s surface, which triggers natural collagen production. It’s supposed to be a great tool for things like pores, texture, and overall tone. A course of these treatments is usually recommended for the best results.
Placenta facials have been around for a while, both human and animal. Many celebrities swear by the stem cells derived from sheep placenta. They are said to promote collagen production and increase skin elasticity.
Dermaplaning might not seem scary at first – after all, it’s just exfoliation. However, instead of a scrub, a 0 gauge scalpel is used to gently scrape off the top layer of dulling dead skin cells. The purpose of this is to reveal a smoother, brighter complexion. Peach fuzz will be gone, and a glow can be noticed almost immediately after treatment. Although a sharp blade is used, there’s 0 downtime.
The Diamond And Ruby Peel
Imagine heading out for a facial and being told to suck on an ice cube (to reduce inflammation), while your face is rubbed with precious stones. The stones are supposed to be antioxidant-rich. This insane facial will set you back about $7,000, and Mila Kunis is supposedly a fan. Well, if you’ve got money to burn!
Snail Slime Facials
There are all kinds of snail slime treatments and products around today. This is because snail slime has a mix of elastin, glycolic acid and protein. Heading for a snail slime facial could be oddly relaxing, if you don’t mind the wet, slimy things all over your face.
Radio frequency treatments can firm and tighten the face and other areas, stimulating collagen and helping you to look more fresh faced. This treatment can also be paired with a number of other treatments and facials to boost the results.
Some of these treatments might seem a bit unorthodox, but celebrities and even normal people swear that they work!
