Extreme beauty: People set their faces on fire to remove wrinkles (WATCH)

What if you were promised fewer wrinkles, younger-looking skin, even slimmer thighs … if you set your body on fire?

While that sounds totally dangerous, and sort of counter-productive to us, the Huǒ liáo treatment, or “fire facial,” is gaining serious traction in China, where the spa service originated.

The idea behind Huǒ liáo is to place a towel soaked in alcohol and a special “elixir” on the face, legs or other parts of the body, then light it on fire for a few seconds. This action apparently stimulates the skin and addresses dullness, sagging and wrinkles. Huh.

This makes the “vampire facelift” seem like a super-safe alternative. What do you guys think? Would you ever set your face ablaze for better skin?

Check out a version of the treatment we found on YouTube:
