Diane Gower, boss at the spa, insists it is not a gimmick:
"We've been trialling it for the last few weeks, we're working with the London Dermatology Centre.
"Garden snails do have parasites so very serious health warning, please do not copy and put garden snails on your face.
"I've got nearly 70 snails, they're nurtured and organically fed, no cross-contamination, when we're working with one client, they're not put on another one."
