Also, the injection of the blood mixture causes no bruising as it is a thin watery fluid.

A vampire facelift is a cosmetic procedure where the facial tissues that get loosened overtime is surgically repositioned. It involves the utilisation of the patient's own blood through a process known as Selphyl. A portion of the patient's blood is extracted from her arm and subjected to spinning in a centrifuge to separate the plasma from the red and white blood cells. The concentrated plasma, which is rich in platelets, is then injected into the face.
