A Tokyo beauty salon is offering a new kind of facial where several snails move across a person’s face and cover the skin in their mucus. The salon claims that this mucus helps to hydrate the skin, remove dead skin, and soothe inflammation.

The mucus contains a mix of proteins, antioxidants and hyaluronic acid which offer anti-aging properties. A one-hour treatment, during which a clients’ face is cleansed and massaged before the salon’s five snails are placed on it.

This treatment, which would set you back around $245, also includes masks and an electrical pulse machine. You can check out the unusual and unique snail facial in the video below:
