New bee sting facial all the buzz for radiant skin

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX -

We've heard of some wild ways to fight wrinkles but how about using bee venom? It's the celebrity secret from UK - even used by Duchess Kate Middleton.

There's a bee sting facial now available in Phoenix.

She's known for her impeccable taste and flawless face - now Kate Middleton's beauty secret is all the buzz here in the U.S. It's the bee sting facial.

"So of course we got super excited about it cause we always like to have the latest and greatest over here at our spa. It's a treatment that's using bee venom. I know that sounds a little scary but it truly is not," says Danielli Marcelino, Suddenly Slimmer Med Spa.

Suddenly Slimmer Med Spa in Phoenix is the only place in the valley offering the facial. Medical Esthetician Dannielli Marcelino says scientists get the venom by placing the bees in a glass container and sending vibrations so that they will attack. The venom is then purified.

"So just kind of like getting stung like a bee caused like a numbing kind of a relaxation of the muscles, just overall blood flow, this treatment will help with speeding up circulation also reducing collagen while adding overall radiance to the skin."

"Afterwards your skin just looks so good."

Danielli says the facial doesn't hurt at all but we were a little bit skeptical. So we asked customer Linda Hanoneh.

"It feels good, it doesn't hurt at all, just a little tingle that's all," Linda says.

It's a good thing - because the facial should be done about every six weeks. It costs $145, but Linda says it's worth it.

"I guess whatever it takes!"

Oh and by the way, no bees were harmed in the making of this face mask. The facial can also be used to treat acne and rosacea.
