Celebrities opt for the 'Vampire face lift' but is it actually any good? Our surgeon Miles Berry comments
So it seems there's a type of face lift which currently appears to be a must have for celebrities including the likes of reality star Kim Kardashian, English actress Anna Friel and many more.
When you hear the word Vampire, one of the things that comes into mind is blood. So why exactly is this type of procedure called a Vampire Face Lift?! Well, this £600 procedure is said to rejuvenate the skin and "enhance tissue generation" by taking some of the patient's own blood, separating its components, then re-injecting the health-giving platelet-rich plasma. Although it's called a face lift, the procedure actually involves no knives, nips or tucks and can therefore be more appealing to those who would rather not "go under".
Our surgeon Mr Miles Berry gave his expert comment on a Vampire Face lift piece in The Daily Telegraph (read the full story - click here), "The procedure has a temporary effect through swelling but there is no evidence whatsoever of any long-term improvements to the skin."
Needless to say on the back of this revelation by Mr Miles Berry, we do not offer the 'Vampire Facial' fad, furthermore we assume it's some sort of bizarre publicity stunt by the celebrities... To find out about the type of non-surgical treatments we do offer click here
