Celebs certainly go to crazy lengths for the sake of looks, but some of Kim Kardashian’s beauty treatments sounds downright ghastly.
According to Life & Style, the reality starlet took a page out of Dracula’s handbook and underwent a “vampire facelift” when she was in Miami. Also known as platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy, the procedure involves injecting the patient’s own blood into his or her face for smooth and wrinkle-free skin. And tonight on Kourtney & Kim Take Miami, we saw the whole gory thing go down!
“The doctor took the blood from Kim’s arm and spun it [in a centrifuge] to separate the platelets,” said a source close to Kim. “The blood was then rubbed onto Kim’s face.”
Next, the doctor conducted a “needling” procedure, where tiny needles punctured the surface of the skin to allow the blood platelets to absorb into the epidermis.
“It was so gross!” said the insider.
Although seen as controversial, PRP therapy claims to be a natural method of stimulating collagen growth for younger-looking skin and is perfectly safe if performed correctly.
We hope Kim’s not the squeamish type when it comes to blood!
