KENT COUNTY, Mich. -- They're beautiful and forever young, something many would try anything to be-- even if it means using their own blood.
The Vampire Facelift hit Hollywood a few years ago. Kim Kardashian created a social media stir when she posted a picture of herself covered in her own blood.
Now, it's available in West Michigan.
Michelle Oliver is willing to give it a try to see if the claims that it reduces wrinkles and turns back time are really true. Dr. Andre has been using the technique for several years.
According to Dr. Andre, "Little wrinkles disappear and skin gets thicker and you can touch it and feel the difference." Here's how it works: a few vials of blood are taken and then spun down in a centrifuge dividing the blood into fat, plasma, and red blood cells.
Then Dr. Andre collects the plasma which contains platelets that are the soul of the vampire facelift. During the hour long procedure Michelle's platelets are smoothed on her skin and then inserted back into her face a few millimeters deep with tiny needles.
