10 Of The Craziest Beauty Treatments People Actually Get

Since the beginning of time, human beings – especially women – have been going through far too many sacrifices in the name of beauty and what society thinks is beautiful. Throughout Asia and Africa, for example, some women will use metal coils in order to deform their neck and shoulders. In China, elderly women will cripple their bodies by using food binding to feel more beautiful. In the West, women rub toxic chemicals into their bodies to make their skin shine bright. Here are ten of the most insane beauty treatments people actually pay for.

Thai Face Slapping

Thai Face Slapping looks as ridiculous as it sounds. Men and women can walk into a Thai beauty salon and pay a trained professional to slap them around. The light slaps to the face are thought to refresh the facial features, fix wrinkles, and shrink the pores. It costs about $350 for just 15 minutes.

Stem Cell Cosmetics

Stem Cell Cosmetics has become a highly popular medical treatment, though it is quite controversial. The stem cells are said to transform other cells in the body, which are then used to repair features and make the individual look younger and fresher.
