Non-Invasive Procedure to Eliminate Wrinkles and Bags
When it comes to eternal youth, vampires just may be on the right track. A new procedure called the Vampire Facelift uses elements of a patient’s blood to revive aging skin.
The technique, which has been patented in Canada, involves taking a vial of blood and spinning the blood for six minutes in a laboratory centrifuge.
A doctor then separates the blood cells from the plasma and re-injects them into facial lines under the eyes and the nasolabial folds (smile lines) to fill them out. A healing process is then triggered with the body regenerating collagen and repairing itself for a more youthful look.
The cost of the Vampire Facelift (also called Selphyl) ranges from $800 to $1,200 per session with results expected to last a year, possibly up to four years (see before and afters from a laser skin centre in the Greater Vancouver area).
Side effects may include an unexplained desire to apply pale makeup and wear extremely dark clothing.
