Frequently Asked Questions:
What is the EscarGlow®Facial?
A combination of micro-needling along with the application of a special snail secretion. This snail secretion is applied during and after the micro-needling to increase penetration and effectiveness. Snails have been used for centuries for their unique healing properties that are attributed to the peptides and growth factors of the snail slime. Growth factors are proven to show a significant increase in the amount of collagen and elastin production in the skin and a reduced downtime when combined with micro-needling.
*No snails are harmed in the extraction of their secretion. The secretion is concentrated and purified before being applied to your skin.
