Beauty salons are popular in Japan. You will probably see at least one advertisement on trains, in magazines, and while watching TV during the commercials. But where are they, and what exactly do they do? How much do they cost? Here is a guide for ７ famous Japanese beauty salons, with briefings on what they do, and their price ranges.
NOTE: Some of these salons have restrictions based on the treatment(s) they offer. Before any treatment, you will have to undergo a consultation that assesses your health history and body to make sure that you will be able to safely receive the treatment in full. In some cases, you may not be able to go through with the treatment, so if you find that one clinic is not able to take you, you will have to try another salon.
