  • A.k.a. vampire face lift.
    " There's a new kind of cosmetic procedure available, and it doesn't require injecting any acids, fat or toxins into the body. The main ingredient in this wrinkle- removing procedure is a patient's own blood.
    The technology is called Selphyl, and it involves injecting a mixture of blood products into the affected areas. It's also called the 'vampire face-lift', although calling it a face-lift is not accurate. Selphyl is a nonsurgical procedure akin to filler injections, while a face-lift is the surgical repositioning of facial tissues that have become loose over time."
