Asia is home to many things, including beautiful historical sites, enriching culture and unique wellness treatments. Acupuncture, cupping and facials are a few examples. Now, facials itself shouldn’t be considered noteworthy in and of themselves, but there are some out there that deserve to be included on their own list.
Here are our picks for the most unique facials you can find in Asia.
The Geisha facial uses the droppings of the Nightingale bird. The bird excrement is sanitized by passing it through ultraviolet light before being milled into fine powder. When the powder is combined with water, it forms a paste that can be used as a cleanser or a face mask. The facial brightens, illuminates, and exfoliates the skin.
You may be grossed out but it’s not as bad as you think. Snail slime or mucin have anti-ageing benefits as they contain hyaluronic acid, glycoprotein enzymes and proteoglycans, all of which are known for their healing and rebuilding properties. The facial is usually done by having live snails move across your face, leaving their mucin behind and your skin softer and supple.
Bee venom facials
They are extracted humanely and then purified. It is then infused into products because it cannot be directly applied to the skin. The bee venom causes a burning sensation to stimulate collagen and elastin production, increase blood flow and tighten underlying muscles.
Despite the name, a caviar facial does not involve the application of caviar to the face. Well, at least not the eggs themselves on your face. The facial is done performed with caviar infused products
The caviar helps with lifting, firming and hydrating the skin making it softer and smoother.
Stem cell facials
Stem cell facials are unique in that they typically require a micro-needling device. In some places, they will use plant stem cells, but in others, they will draw your own blood and apply your blood’s stem cells to your face. By puncturing the skin slightly and injecting stem cells into the small wounds, the stem cells help rejuvenate the skin, repair the skin’s damage and lift the skin.
Cryotherapy facials are non-invasive treatments that use devices to cool the skin. As it stimulates natural collagen growth, this facial brightens the skin, tightens pores and reduces fine lines.
At Danai Wellness, you can get our Signature Cryo Flawless Laser which combines all the benefits of a cryo facial with a laser that helps remove irregular pigmentation and promote new collagen production for youthful skin.
