Kim Kardashian vampire facials: stem cells in there?

Kim Kardashian was a fan of vampire facials, but no more.

Celebrities such as Kim Kardashian are reportedly getting so-called vampire facials.

Why put yourself through that?

Perhaps because stem cells and other material inside the processed blood is supposed to make them younger?

Yes, that is Kim above (photo from Kim Kardashian on Instagram) with her face smeared with blood, but not just ordinary Kardashian blood. Instead it reportedly is her blood that has been centrifuged and processed to make a biomagical concoction perhaps boosted with stem cells.

Stem cell magic, of course, courtesy of a so-called vampire facial.

And one shouldn’t forget that apparently she had her face “micro-needled” first to let all that good stuff smeared on her face into her skin tissue.

This prep process has been described as rototilling your face (see device below…yes each little thing on there is a needle).

Yikes! Looks like a torture device to me.micro needling

But possibly this is a case of mistaken therapeutic identity as it appears Kim had a treatment with platelet-rich plasma (PRP), which is not actually a stem cell product, at least probably not.

These days, who knows.

She’s very pretty, but I think better off without the blood, needling, etc.

Don’t you agree?

Interestingly, by way of update, Kim apparently now regrets her famous vampire facial.

In New Mexico some patients may have been exposed to HIV, hepatitis and other diseases with vampire facials.
