Kim Kardashian went off the deep end when she got a vampire facial on the March 10 episode of ‘Kourtney and Kim Take Miami.’ Was her blood facial crazy or worth it to look younger? Vote below!
Kim Kardashian, 32, isn’t shy about spilling her beauty routine. From contouring her makeup to spending $2,200 a week on face, hair and body treatments, Kim’s regimen hit a bloody high note on the March 10 reality show. Would YOU ever get a vampire facial? Learn more about the procedure below.
The messy blood facial uses a patient’s own blood to give the skin a more youthful appearance. The blood’s platelets are injected into the skin with 9 acupuncture-like needles.
Kim said, “I love trying anything that makes you look and feel youthful.” But as the procedure started, she cried out, saying that it hurt so bad!
“Oh my God! I will never get a facelift if it feels like that,” Kim screamed out.
The procedure works to fill in wrinkles and cost about $1,000. Kim tweeted out a picture of her blood-stained face on March 10.
Experts Explain The Procedure
Dr. Sofia Rubbani, an Oculoplastic Surgeon at Glow Aesthetics and Surgery on Long Island, NY, told RealSelf.com, “It works by temporarily plumping up lines, much like its older cousins Juvederm and Restylane. But unlike the competition, Selphyl uses the patient’s own blood to do the plumping.”
Dr. Rubbani continues, “You see an immediate difference with a slight decrease initially in the next four days or so, then over three to four weeks you see the full plumping results; as the body’s platelets and growth factors stimulate the production of collagen and improve the volume and texture of the skin,” Dr. Rubbani commented.
Los Angeles Facial Plastic Surgeon Paul S. Nassif, MD tells RealSelf.com: “Over time, you can get around 10-15% more volume in your face, which can last a few years. It takes about 8 weeks to see. The procedure also gives you a better glow. It helps with your pores and your blemishes, and it gives you overall healthier looking skin.”
