Japanese cryptocurrency exchange and payment processor Bitflyer will facilitate customers of Shonan Beauty Clinic to settle their bills in bitcoin in their 74 outlets nationwide.

An agreement to this effect was signed this week between Biyflyer and SBC Medical Group, the parent company that owns the popular Japanese beauty clinic network.

Shonan clinics offer a wide variety of services including eyelid surgery, liposuction, dermatology, acupuncture, cosmetic dental, rhinoplasty, and breast augmentation.
