Want to Get Rid of Your Wrinkles? You Need a $350 Slap in the Face

San Francisco ChronicleSan Francisco ChronicleThe search for the next, best wrinkle-zapping treatment is always on. But it turns out the fountain of youth has been in our hands all along.

Yes, face-slapping.

For a mere $350, Tata will hit you with "targeted smacks" across your cheeks, chin, and forehead to "move the muscle and fat around" so that you see a noticeable difference (and not just in the shape of a red hand print). Mawan Sombuntham, Tata's husband and co-owner of the salon, says Tata can smack your face so hard it'll "help with wrinkles, make your face slimmer, and make your pores smaller."

We've got one disclaimer for you, though: This treatment is also 100 percent void of any scientific support. (And, you know, basic reasoning and common sense.)

And it gets better. Tata is returning to Thailand this year to learn butt-punching, which Sombuntham says is an "ancient Thai wisdom that firms and shapes the butt.
