From the Huffington Post:
What happened during the blood facial is that the doctor drew Kim’s blood with a needle. The platelets were then spun out and then a device filled with tiny needles was used to put the final product back in. If the very idea of it sounds painful, based on Kim’s reaction — it is.
“That hurts so bad!” she lamented as the doctor was re-injecting the blood. After going through the blood facial, Kim vowed that she would never get a facelift if it hurt anything like that.
Kim undergoes the infamous facial in the latest episode of “Kourtney & Kim Take Miami,” which aired on Sunday night. The treatment, actually called the Selphyl System, is supposed to fill in scars and wrinkles, the same way synthetic fillers do. The results, which are visible after just a couple of days, is smoother skin and a youthful glow.
For the strong of stomach, there’s at least one local MD who offers the treatment. The website says the procedure can be done in as little as 20 minutes.
