Trend Alert: Vampire Facial

Eric Northman gets new career as an esthetician?
Last Year on Valentine's Day I was treated to a chocolate facial and in the past I've heard about 24k gold facials and wine hydrating facials but there is a hot new trend that really caught my attention! The Vampire Facial from Eclipse Aesthetics promises to "is completely organic and only uses components derived from the patient’s internal biology."
“The Vampire Facial is a designer procedure in which the body’s own platelet rich plasma (PRP) is used to re-energize cells and boost collagen production,” said Tom O’Brien, CEO of Aesthetics LL. “The PRP possesses increased concentrations of one’s own growth factors. These self-derived growth factors are powerful elements that aid in a more youthful appearance.”
So how exactly does this process work? Much to my chagrin, Eric Northman (nor the sexy Swede Alexander Skarskard who plays him on True Blood) won't be doing the job! Here are further details on what will go down:

“PRP is applied topically to the skin following a micro-needling process in which the skin is perforated with near microscopic holes. The growth factors in the PRP re-energize cells to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while improving the skin’s tone and texture.”
The Dallas-based firm is the only one currently doing this procedure but if it proves popular, it could be coming to a spa near you. Would you try a Vampire Facial if it were available near you?
