Saw this on Popsci and it was one of those shakes head moments.
Vampire facials is a new way of treating aging...apparently.
A "blood facial" or "vampire facial" is a cosmetic procedure during which a doctor draws a couple vials of blood from your arm, centrifuges
the blood to separate out the plasma and platelets from the red blood cells, and then adds the platelet-rich plasma back into your face. For extra
absorption, the doctor pokes your face all over with a bunch of micro-needles before applying the plasma
I'm not going to post the picture because it's Kim Kardashian and she annoys me.
I find this very sad that some women feel that they need to go to this length to stop wrinkles or any length for that matter.
Now, being a bloke, I don't have a problem with growing old. It's something we all have to go through and it's part of life. I have far more
respect for a woman who ages gracefully than a woman who plasters her face in synthetic chemicals but blood!?
Please, all you women out there who are conditioned to think you shouldn't have wrinkles, don't waste your money, your time and possibly your health
treating something that will happen eventually whether you like it or not.
Obviously that's my opinion and it's entirely up to you what you do with you body.
What I find startling is this:
There's no evidence at all that this gory procedure works, and only the babiest starting evidence that injecting platelets into the skin works at
all against the appearance of aging.
Whether that collagen growth really happens and helps, "nobody really knows," Patricia Farris, a cosmetic dermatologist with a practice in
Louisiana, tells Popular Science. "I just think that it's a procedure you don't know all that much about. I think we need good studies to see if
this is an appropriate use for this material."
What say you ATS?
Are you for or against wrinkles?
