Kim Kardashian's 'Vampire Facelift' Might Be the Reason She Isn't Aging

OMG 10

Kim Kardashian When I first heard the rumor about Kim Kardashian having a vampire facelift to make herself look younger, my first thought was, "What the heck is a vampire facelift? Is that where you watch Twilight while getting Botox or something like that?"

Yeah -- not quite. As it turns out, this is an actual cosmetic procedure in which your blood is literally sucked out of your face and then components are injected back in again in the hopes of smoothing wrinkles, boosting the production of new blood cells and collagen, and making the skin look, well -- younger and more supple.

Seriously, people. Women are willingly having their blood extracted, and apparently Kim is a huge fan and "swears by the procedure."

Huh. Really? Kim's already getting face lifts at 32? I'm not sure that I'm buying that theory.

I mean, I know there was that one time when she was photographed looking all red and puffy, so I guess it's possible that she was getting her vampire face lift on. (Or maybe she was getting a teensy bit of Botox?)

Over the past few years, Kim doesn't really appear to have aged very much, so I guess that's one argument in the vampire facelift's favor. But couldn't it be that the reason Kim doesn't appear to have aged is because she hasn't? Just because she looks youthful at 32 doesn't necessarily mean she's resorted to something as extreme as blood sucking. (Gah.)

But if she has, she may want to think twice about keeping up with the procedure from here on out, especially now that she's pregnant. If I were her, I'd be pretty hesitant to get any sort of substance, natural or not, injected into my body without knowing for sure that it's 100 percent safe. (Actually, I'm hesitant regarless of pregnancy.)

Besides, like any other cosmetic filler, the vampire facelift isn't a one-time solution. You supposedly have to keep up with getting them since they eventually wear off, just like Botox. Who wants to have their blood sucked out of their face on a regular basis?

Do you think Kim had a vampire facelift? Would you get one?

I appreciate your comments on the Vampire Lift..however, not everything you wrote is completely accurate. We do the procedure where I work and I have had it done on my hands (TURNED OUT GREAT!!)...the blood is NOT "sucked out of your face"...it is drawn from your arm...just like a blood test, then spun in a centrifuge to separate out the platelets. They are then injected into your face (or hands), to stimulate new collagen production...I'm having the hollows (tear troughs)under my eyes "done" next. I saw another one of our staff get that procedure and she also looks great!...very natural. If someone is concerned that there might be pain, we offer "BLT" (benzocaine, lidocaine + tetracaine) cream, a topical cream to numb the skin. It isn't a scary treatment at all.

Yes, it's horrendous, but "regarless of pregnancy" is equally horrendous. Anyone with the simplest spell-check would've found that. Way to go, editors.

I think it's absolutely atrocious, but, at the same time, I feel the same way about internet writers who have typos like "regarless of pregnancy."

The inventor of the Vampire Facelift was reluctant to be interviewed. They finally tracked him down. Here's what he had to say... http://ireport.cnn.com/docs/DOC-943485

I have heard of them doing this. If it worked I might do it. It looked kind of painful though :)
