Vampire Facials Hit Prime Time

Recently, on "Kourtney and Kim Take Miami," Kim Kardashian underwent a procedure that is getting a fair amount of attention these days, the aptly named Vampire Facial. While not exactly pretty to watch, the bloody facial, which relies on the body's own platelet-rich plasma (PRP), is reputed to energize cells and boost collagen production. After skin is treated to a micro-needling session, the PRP, which contains growth factors, is applied topically to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Of course, after witnessing Kim's experience, I might think twice before volunteering to try the procedure, regardless of the results. Interestingly, the Vampire Facial is considered by some to be one of the less invasive treatments to help turn back the clock. What are your thoughts about either offering it in your spa or experiencing it yourself? Stay tuned for more on the Vampire Facial in an upcoming issue.
