New Japanese “Snail Facials” Questioned

New Japanese “Snail Facials” Questioned

Dr. Walden was recently featured on cbsnews.com in their article detailing the newest skincare craze in Japan, “Snail Facials.” The snails leave “trails of mucus slime on the clients’ faces” says CBS.

The mucus is supposedly filled with ‘antioxidants, proteins, and hyaluronic acid’ aiding in skin moisture, inflammation reduction, and exfoliation. But these benefits may come with a price greater than the $245 cost. Some snails carry parasites that, when placed on the skin, could cause organ damage, meningitis, and other problems. Instead of taking a risk for better skin, Dr. Walden urges women to use products with “hyaluronic acid and antioxidants.” These products are safer and will give proven results.
