Arizona Spa Week is around the corner and the annual collection of $50 treatments were announced this week. On the list are signature massages, skin treatments, and facials at some of the best spas in town, but if you want the hottest treatment on the market, you're going to have to skip town.

This year, a brain trust of Japanese beauty specialists introduced their patrons to the the Huǒ liáo, in which a towel soaked in alcohol and a "special elixir" is placed on the legs, face, or other parts of the body -- and set on fire.

Is it getting hot in here?

After the towel burns for a few seconds, it is removed and is said to "stimulate" (no kidding) the skin and fight dullness, wrinkles, and sagging. That is, if the pyro beauty specialist doesn't get distracted.

The Huǒ liáo is mainly applied to the face and the torso, though we can only imagine what will happen when the treatment jumps the pond and is applied before a pejazzle.

That's just an emergency room trip in the making. Not sure who's crazier, the one who came up with the idea or the one who lets someone do this to them.

I think we were doomed when anal bleaching became a thing.
