Bar Refaeli Vampire FaceliftBar Refaeli has shared a photo on Instagram of her blood-smeared face taken while she was having a vampire facial.

The 27-year-old Israeli supermodel posted that she had gone to ‘Dr Paula’ for the treatment in preparation for her live appearance on the X-Factor Israel.

Miss Refaeli is the latest celebrity to have undergone the procedure since Kim Kardashian tweeted a photo of herself last March post treatment.

Bar is known for her avid use of instagram so it was no surprise that she shared the image with her 1 million plus followers.

The Vampire Facelift was trademarked by Alabama doctor Charles Runel. The treatment involves drawing the patient’s own blood from their arm, and separating it into platelet-rich plasma using a centrifuge.

How Can It Be Used?

The versatile treatment can be used in a number of ways.

The plasma can be combined with Restylane or Juvederm fillers, and injected into the patient’s face to stimulate collagen production- which creates new skin and removes fine lines and acne scars.

It can also be used following laser treatments such as fractional CO2 to aid healing and further improve results.

Starting A Trend
