It's no secret that Kim Kardashian is obsessed with looking good. She's documented some of her attempts at staying beautiful and youthful on her reality shows, and she occasionally complains about her biggest beauty problems (hair and cellulite). But is she taking her attempt at looking like a living doll too far with a "vampire facelift?"
Obviously Kim doesn't want to look like a "Twilight" bloodsucker-the sparkly vampires in the movies might look great for all eternity, but they're way too pale for bronzer-loving Kim. So instead of letting a vampire bite her, she's having blood sucked out of her body.
The vampire facelift process begins with a vial of blood being drawn from a patient's arm. Plasma is then separated from the blood and used to fill in fine lines and wrinkles. Here's what a source told InTouch Weekly about the plasma treatment: "They did something called needling, where all these little needles prick the skin and let the platelets seep in. It was so gross!"
Kim Kardashian might like this treatment better than Botox since the results are supposed to be long-lasting and natural, but she hasn't given up on freezing her facial muscles just yet.
Kim has admitted to continuing to use Botox between her eyebrows even though her first experience with the cosmetic procedure left her with bruising around her eyes. Here's what she told Now Magazine about her experience with Botox: "I didn't like having Botox at the corner of my eyes and I still don't think I need it there, but I'd have it in my forehead - in fact, I have since, just right there in the middle of my eyebrows. I'm not against it at all, it was just I didn't need it in the corner of my eyes at that time."
Kim claims that she hasn't had any plastic surgery, but she also says that she's not against it because she's so impressed with the results of her mom's non-vampire facelift.
Since Kim isn't afraid of knives and needles, it shouldn't be surprising that she's a big fan of lasers. She told Oprah that she swears by Fraxel laser treatments to keep her face looking fresh, and when it comes to body hair, she says that she's "lasered everything." She's such a fan of being hairless that she even took boyfriend Kanye West with her on a date to a laser hair removal clinic.
In 2008 Kim tried to have her cellulite massaged away with a special treatment called VelaShape on an episode of "Keeping Up with the Kardashians," but her dimply skin is really stubborn-she's still complaining about her orange peel thighs.
Kim allegedly spends over $100,000 a year on other beauty treatments like 24-carat gold facials that cost $800 a pop, $110 tequila body scrubs, and $500 hairstyling sessions. So with all that beautifying, it's amazing that she finds time to do anything else.
So do you think that the results are worth all the money that Kim spends, or has the reality show gone too far?
