Vampire facial

This technique gained notoriety from a 2013Keeping Up With the Kardashians episode in which Kim gets an anti-aging treatment that leaves her face spotted with blood. The “vampire facial,” or platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment, utilizes the body’s own growth factors to regenerate tissue and promote collagen production. “During this procedure, blood is taken from the patient’s vein and placed in a specialized centrifuge,” says plastic surgeon and RealSelf contributor, David Shafer, MD. “As the blood spins at a very fast speed, the components of the blood separate into serum, platelets, and red blood cells, and the PRP layer is isolated and used for various rejuvenating procedures.”

While the PRP does not add volume, Dr. Shafer claims it can give local cells a healthy boost. Keep in mind that this may require a topical anesthetic because it’s done in conjunction with micro-needling, which can be painful. Kim Kardashian herself said she regretted having the procedure because she did it without numbing cream.
