Vampire Therapy

No, I’m not talking about those of you who are far too obsessed with Twilight and Robert Patternson, I’m talking about a new beauty treatment that may have taken things a step too far. We primp, preen, inject ourselves with botox, enhance our lips with fillers, but would you go so far as to actually inject your face with your own blood? That’s what this new treatment is all about and it freaks me out!

“Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP) is the very latest technique for skin renewal and rejuvenation, which uses your own platelets in a series of comfortable Meson-injections.  This revolutionary treatment in facial aesthetics is a natural alternative to botox and fillers, giving a smoother and more youthful appearance. 

This simple procedure involves the process of comfortably taking a small sample of your own blood which is mixed with a unique enriched serum devised by Dr Stezler, to create the Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy. This is then re-injected back into the desired area on your face or body; giving you a naturally looking smoother and sleeker complexion knocking years off your appearance!

This revolutionary procedure activates the natural stem cells that exist in the facial tissue, which then stimulates your own skin cells to produce more collagen and elastic. Your skin will be rejuvenated; lifting and brightening your complexion. This procedure improves the quality of the skin and hydration levels, as well as dramatically increasing collagen production.”

Maybe it’s the secret to Bella’s complexion?

Andrea McClean from Loose Women has been undergoing this treatment and apparently loves it. Personally it seems like a step too far for me and something I can’t see many women buying into. Would you inject your own blood in the hunt for inner radiance and youth?!

    I wouldn't miss an episode of TB, but this treatment is one 'bloody' step too far for me!

    I'm with you girlies – way to extreme for me. I feel ill just thinking about it.

    Whaaaat this is crazy! I'd be interested in seeing before and after pictures of someone who has the guts to try this treatment!

    Eugh this makes me squirm uncomfortably! Why why why! I can't imagine this treatment taking off. As someone who struggles to donate blood, this makes me positively queasy x

    As a skin care specialist, I'm wondering why you all find it disgusting to re-inject something your body naturally produces and has been proven in medical circumstances to half the natural healing time an all under supervison of a medical doctor. But don't bat an eyelid over letting any old nurse inject something that's actually a poison and could potentially have negative side effects.Just wondering, have a think about it before you jump to conclusions, just because of the mention of the word blood!

    I'm quite sceptical about these new treatments which use so many scientific words like 'stem cells'. Consider drug design can easily take over 20 years for proper clinical trials before it can be licensed for safe use by the public, I'm unsure if there are similar tight regulations for these 'beauty treatments', which needs to test for both safety and efficacy.I would far prefer to age gracefully – there's something much more classier about it! Plus diet and exercise in the long run would have far greater effect – short term, lazy fixs are just a waste of time. x

    Amanda, I take your point but I think re-injecting anything back into you is a little bit extreme. I don't believe in botox either, but injecting yourself with blood is taking it one step too far for me. I also agree with Cassie above – I wonder how effective this is knowing that clinical treatments take years to go through approval. Interesting discussions going on though, which is why I posted it!!

    As a registered nurse, and qualified aesthetic practitioner, I find this to be very exciting. Autologous (using your own) blood transfusion has been used for at least a decade and is the safest method of having blood, as there is no risk of rejection. I would rather use this, than alternative injections, because of the stimulation of collagen production. If it stimulates my own collagen, then this must be a good thing 🙂

    I've had vampire treatment and I can confirm that in my case, at least, it works without a shadow of doubt. Although I should say that I found the injections very painful…no pain no gain
