In the "Twilight" of your youth, you might look to a new trend in cosmetic surgery dubbed the "vampire facelift" that involves getting an injection of your own blood. The procedure isn't actually a facelift and doesn't involve plastic surgery. It's another kind of cosmetic filler but instead of getting a shot of chemicals, patients are injected with a mixture of their blood, called Selphyl. A blend of a person's platelets with a protein produced during bleeding called fibrin, Selphyl causes wrinkles to plump up and become less visible. Not surprisingly, buzz about the procedure is swirling since the "Twilight" saga movies and "True Blood" television series have made all things vampire feverishly popular. More

Fox News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Devotees of Botox and other forms of cosmetic surgery are turning to so-called power massages to bring their frozen faces back to life, according to reports. Muscles paralyzed by Botox injections are repeatedly pummeled by hand to make up for the exercise they lack and to restore blood circulation. Some treatments involve massaging the cheeks from the inside of the client's mouth."The skin becomes dull and waxy looking with Botox," said Nichola Joss, a beauty therapist who charges more than $305 for a 90-minute facial, including the power massage. "The skin needs to be fed, and the massage gets blood flow back and skin tone and color is improved." More
