blood facial

A blood facial is an anti-aging procedure that involves a technician first drawing blood from a patient's arm and then spinning it in a centrifuge to separate the red blood cells from the yellowish platelet liquid. Next, the platelet liquid is rolled onto the patient's face with a rolling pin affixed with tiny acupuncture needles. The tiny needles genially puncture the skin to allow the blood cells to be absorbed more easily.

It's believed that the platelet blood cells will give a boost to the growth factors of dormant stem cells within the skin tissue so they generate more collagen. Collagen is an important ingredient to make the skin look younger and with elasticity.
