So have you heard the newest Beauty trend? Snake venom for wrinkles ladies. Yep, you read it right. A Beverly Hills skincare clinic has been doing snake venom facials to target fine lines and wrinkles. The idea might seem bizarre, but because of its ‘Botox-like effect,’ the venom is increasingly gaining acceptance. The main ingredient used in this Snake Venom Facial, SYN-AKE is actually not real snake venom, but a synthetic version developed to mimic the paralyzing effect of a temple viper’s venom.
When this snake venom like serum is applied to the skin during the snake venom facial, clients experience a relaxing effect on the skin. The ingredients send messages to the muscle receptors not to contract, thus a relaxed “Botox” effect is achieved. When a snake bites an animal or human being, the venom works to paralyze the skin and eventually the entire body.
Snake venom is the latest celebrity in the anti-aging industry and celebrities and non-celebrities alike are lining up to try this product and get the facial. If you’re nowhere near Beverly Hills you can try the product in the luxury of your own home- but save your pennies as this is not a cheap one. You will have to shell out $195 for a small 1 oz. bottle. Those who have tried it say it leaves a tingling burning sensation on your skin for a few minutes, similar to the cinnamon type plumping products for lips.
Not sure this will ever be on my must-have list. The thought of getting that close to anything that resembles a snake is a little freaky to me. If you’ve tried this treatment let me know your thoughts.
Stay Gorgeous Girls~
