Snail Facials

As one of the latest and most interesting rejuvenating treatments to slither onto the scene, the snail facial is administered using a microneedling technique. Microneedling involves using a hand-held device with hundreds of tiny needles that run over the entire face. Because the needles penetrate the skin at a deeper level, they are effective at pushing products or substances into the skin.

Essentially, the micro-needles create “controlled injuries” to the skin that signal the body’s natural healing mechanism. This includes the production of collagen, which tightens and refines skin, diminishing fine lines and wrinkles. Thus, microneedling is a popular anti-aging technique all its own. Add to that the extraordinary mixture of purified snail excretions and hyaluronic acid, and individuals can expect a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring, smaller pores and smooth, supple skin.

A Radiant, Youthful Complexion With Snail Slime Microneedling

When delivered using the revolutionary microneedling technique, fibroblasts begin to produce collagen, unveiling a unique radiance that is said to rival more invasive treatments.

While 3 to 6 treatments are typically recommended to obtain lasting results, microneedling with snail slime effectively boosts the body’s regenerative processes, which helps skin bounce back from the effects of gravity. Over time, one treatment may be given each year to condition the dermis to continue producing collagen, resulting in a long-term reduction of lines and wrinkles and the repairing of damaged skin. Results also include a smooth, even skin tone and greater luminosity.
