Selphyl: A Vampire Face-Lift

In this day and age, it seems people will try just about anything to take a few years off their face. It is crazy the extent people will go and the things they will do to their bodies to deceive their natural-looking aging bodies.

If you are one of those people looking to get rid of your wrinkles or your hallow cheeks, look no further. To go along with this whole Twilight phase, plastic surgeons are performing Vampire face-lifts.

“In fact, it’s not surgery, but an in-office procedure that entails having blood drawn from your arm, then spun in a centrifuge to separate out the platelets. They are then injected into your face, with the hope of stimulating new collagen production. Selphyl, as the system is called, arrived on the booming facial-rejuvenation market in 2009, and is now used by roughly 300 doctors nationwide in the name of beauty,” said Sanjay Batra, the chief executive of Aesthetic Factors, which manufactures the Selphyl system.

It is common to think when blood is drawn from one’s arm, it will then be tested and/or transfused into a sick patient at the hospital, but who knew it could then be injected into one’s face as part of cosmetic surgery?

So for all of you out there who fear the aging process, how about a vampire face-lift?

And for those of you out there who fear blood shortages, how about a blood donation? Go to DonorPoint.org and make an appointment to donate blood today… Tomorrow, you’ll have someone’s undying gratitude.
