What do you think about vampire facials/facelift?

The vampire facial, or Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), involves extracting a couple of dessert spoons of a patient's blood from their arm and spinning it in a centrifuge to separate the plasma - the fluid part - from the red and white blood cells.
The concentrated plasma, which is rich in platelets - the part of the blood with growth factors - is then injected into the face. Some practitioners combine it with dermal fillers to further plump up problem areas, such as under the eye.

Gross and not for me, but I suppose if that's what people really want and they're willing to pay for it that's okay.
PRP does contain some medicinal benefit. It's used predominantly in treating sporting injuries where specifically there is soft tissue damage (this is where I first heard about commercial blood cell treatment). Having majored in biology, we studied this but at the time of my studies (20 + years ago) commercial treatment wasn't even known about (to my knowledge at least).

From a scientific perspective, the blood cell (or platelet) contains agents that allow for clotting, growth and healing. Which from a medical standing PRP treatment makes sense.

However in terms of cosmetic rejuvenation, I'm very sceptical and treat this as more of a fad. But then again who really knows. Would I do this - NO - not for cosmetic purposes.

I won't even consider things like Botox for the sake of vanity, let alone blood being injected into my face.

However, if I sustained severe soft tissue injury, which would greatly benefit from PRP treatment, I would.
No, not at all interested. Its the old supply and demand merry-go-round wouldn't exist if people didn't think they needed it.
They things we do for beauty. I cant say I would never do anything cosmetic to look beautiful, this is not something I would try.

Hmmm well never say never as you can't know for sure what is going to happen in the future, so I suppose I might do it..... but I can't think of any circumstances that would tempt me to do it now!
I think I'm going to be sick. Thanks for the heads up. :P

I don't believe that it's something I could really sink my teeth into....
it is scary, just awful and ugly
I have not heard of this before but it would not be of interest to me.
I am the age I am so would no longer go through the pain/stress of an unneeded operation and anasthetic.

Someone's always coming up with some weird & wacky idea to separate stupid, vain & lacking in self-confidence women, from their MONEY!

If it's for a MEDICAL procedure & recommended by GP, I'd still think for awhile before committing!
