Kim Kardashian gets a vampire blood facial
Kim Kardashian got a blood facial on Sunday’s episode of her reality show Kourtney and Kim Take Miami.
Kim Kardashian, 32, was seen trying out the latest beauty technique.
“I love trying anything that makes you look and feel youthful,” the reality star said.
A large needle drew blood from her arm before the sample was spun in a machine to remove the platelets.
The blood was then splattered into Kim Kardashian’s face using nine tiny little acupuncture-style needles.
But first she had to slap on some numbing cream in a bid to ease the pain.
“It stings a little,” the doctor who administered the treatment warned.
Kim Kardashian’s best pal Jonathan Cheban looked like he was about to pass out as he watched her getting the procedure – which he had originally told her about.
The treatment is so-called because it uses the patient’s own blood to make improvements to the skin.
The plasma from the blood is then extracted and used in the non-invasive procedure, with the aim of rejuvenating the skin.
The technique is an updated version of the traditional “vampire facelift”, which involves a series of painful injections into the face.
