Vampire facelift: Kould the Kardashians get any more Kliched?
Pregnant women try to avoid blue cheese, caffeine and pâté. They might also pass on having blood injected into their faces. Not so for Kim Kardashian.
The ruling member of the Kardashian clan, who is expecting Kanye West's baby, has undergone a “vampire facelift” during the latest episode of reality TV series Kourtney & Kim Take Miami.
The vampire facelift process involves taking blood from the arm, separating the blood of platelets which are then purified and injected back into the skin to “stimulate the growth of new collagen.”
The reality TV star, whose concept of natural beauty is disturbing at most times, said before the procedure: “I love trying anything that makes you look and feel youthful.”
After being told that it “might sting a little”, Kim shouted in pain as the surgeon injected nine acupuncture needles into her face, before saying: “Oh my God. I will never get a facelift if it feels like that.”
The star powered through the pain to tweet pictures of her bloodied face to her 17.5 million followers minutes after the treatment.
Her blood-thirst for self-promotion knows no bounds.
Meanwhile on the same programme, Kim’s sister Kourtney was seen crying over her appearance after her husband Scott Disick admonished her for gaining weight since giving birth.
Scott said: “Last time around you tried to watch what you were eating, after you had Mason…at least you were losing weight.”
Kourtney replied she was trying to lose weight the healthy way, but Scott hit back saying: “Just do it faster. You’re my piece of machinery!”
As Kim works painfully hard- quite literally- to create an image of machinelike beauty by which women including her sister are judged, you might ask whether the Kardashians can keep up with themselves.
What is a Vampire Facelift?
Vampire facelifts have becomes popular in the last few years since the success of Twilight.
During the process a dermatologist or plastic surgeon collects a small volume of blood from the patient and separates and concentrates the patient’s own platelets and fibrin into a matrix.
This can be applied to a treatment area of the face or body to stimulate cell proliferation which promotes the increase of volume and rejuvenation of the skin through a process of targeted tissue re-generation.
