A New Beauty Procedure Involves Re-Injecting Blood into Faces

Beauty facials are nothing new in the never-ending pursuit of smoother skin and less-noticeable wrinkles. However, a new procedure may have you asking just how far someone will truly go to reverse the effects of physical aging.

The new beauty facials sound vampiric, and that's probably because it's not far off. The patient, I mean client, has two vials of blood drawn from their arm. The vials are then placed in a centrifuge for nine minutes, which separates the red platlets that encourage growth from the yellow platlets. The freshly spun blood is then re-injected directly into the victim's face. Did I say victim? I meant client, because there are people out there paying to have needles of their own blood injected into their face at a clinic in Miami.

The beauty facials have been done to no less an authority than Kim Kardashian, who gave a glowing review of the treatment through social media. She even posted an Instagram picture of her face covered in puncture marks from the needles. She's never looked better.
