Kim Kardashian’s Bloody Facelift
Kim Kardashian underwent a vampire facelift on Sunday's episode of her show "Kourtney and Kim Take Miami."
It is the same procedure that the Oscar attendees received via a gift certificate in their swag bags last month.
Dr. Jeffrey Spiegel described the procedure:
"What you do is you take out from a person's arm about two teaspoons full of blood - a standard blood draw, like you would get when you go to the doctor and add some chemicals, spin it down, and separate it a certain way, and you end up with some fluid that can be injected into the face,"
"It's similar to, if you ever scraped your knee, that kind of yellowy stuff that you see oozing out of you - it's like that. So then you inject this back in into the area where there are wrinkles. The thought is that the natural body products that you inject in are going to stimulate your body to produce more collagen, provide some volume in itself, perhaps it contains stem cells that are gonna help, the goal is to get a much better appearance using your own body's blood."
The Vampire Facelift is the trademarked name for a non-surgical cosmetic procedure involving the reinjection of a gel-like substance—platelet rich fibrin matrix (PRFM)—derived from a patient’s own blood back into multiple areas of the skin of their face in an effort to treat wrinkles and “rejuvenate” the face.
There are no scientific publications that describe the Vampire Facelift procedure or examine its efficacy. There are, however, three publications that report that PRP may be useful as a facial filler.
