There’s the proverbial beauty cream. The gold-standard glycolic scrub. The standby anti-aging serum. Yawn.
It’s the same old, same old.
So why not slap wrinkles into submission?
That’s what a new beauty parlor in San Francisco aims to do in a “revolutionary” new treatment. The Thai salon says that slapping your face is all the rage in removing unwanted wrinkles. It’s revolutionary, all right.
According to the Seattle PI who originally covered the story, the method is called “ancient Thai face slapping” which is said to firm up the skin’s surface with firm smacks to the cheeks, forehead, and chin. It aims to replace plastic surgery and injections with the theoretically same benefits.
But according to the news source, the slapping demonstration fell flat.
“After about 10 minutes, it was all over,” described the writer. “[They] said the slapping had been a great success and held up the “before” and “after” pictures they had taken… The photos looked exactly the same, not for lack of effort.”
At $350 a session, it’s certainly a pretty penny to pay for mixed results. Consider the other options that $350* could buy:
Botox. More or less guaranteed to do away with unwanted fine lines and wrinkles, Botox is a big hit with 30-, 40-, and 50-somethings that want to look a little more refreshed, rejuvenated – without looking “done.”
Injectable fillers. Restylane, Perlane, Radiesse, and other injectable fillers add the volume where volume is needed such as cheeks, nasolabial folds, and even the chin area. Volume equal youth!
Talk to a board-certified plastic surgeon in Temecula for more information on these beauty treatments. Most women are great candidates for Botox and injectable fillers.
