The Top 5 Scariest Skin Treatments of the Year

A lot of people are willing to go to great lengths to achieve  flawless, glowing skin…would you ever dare to try one of these?

The Vampire Facial

We’ve all heard beauty is pain, but how high is your pain threshold?

Why is she doing this? 

The Dermapen needles work much like a Dermaroller-it stimulates collagen via tiny lesions in the skin which can help improve the appearance of skin in terms of clearness and smoothness.

Supposedly, injecting your face with your own blood magnifies these effects. 

Syn-ake

How far would you go to look young forever?

This is the product fittingly dubbed “Botox in a Bottle.” It’s made from synthetic snake venom that helps fight signs of aging by temporarily paralyzing the muscles in the face. It’s modeled after the venom of the Tenple Viper.

Leeches

Just…eew

While the use of leeches in the medical world is nothing new, these bloodsucking creatures are rumored to help acne and numerous other ailments due to a chemical called hirudin they excrete during the feeding process that thins the blood (an anti-coagulant). Their saliva also contains many lipids which are good for moisturizing the skin…

The Phantom Facial

While LED lights may not be all that scary, this facial certainly looks like it is!

The light helps smooth the skin and give it a natural glow. It has virtually no downtime, so it’s perfect for those who don’t want to sponsor “facial face” for a few days.

And to save the scariest for last…

Groupon Laser Treatment

Need I say more?

You can read about one poor girl’s horrible, but highly informative experience with Fraxel laser treatments she found on Groupon here.

To sum it up tl;dr style: girl struggled with acne entire life, had a lot of scarring she wanted to fix, but didn’t have the spare cash to afford laser treatments full price. By chance, she stumbled on a Groupon for it, which allowed her to afford the treatments…until this decision literally scarred her for life 😱

Valuable takeaway: just wait until you save up enough for your procedure. Don’t be cheap when it comes to doctors (or laser treatments).

Have you and/or would you ever try one of these? What do you think of them?
