No matter who you are or where you’re from, given the opportunity to look younger, you’re probably going to take it without hesitation.
Why? Because everybody wants to look the way that they feel. Modern medicine has us living longer, healthier lives, and we want to enjoy these lives as the best version of ourselves.
The latest skincare and beauty trend to hit Hollywood saw Victoria Beckham spending £1 200 (that’s over R21 000) on a moisturiser made from her own blood.
Yep. Human blood.
Before you freak out, though, let’s take a moment to appreciate the fact that Posh, pictured below wearing very little make-up, is 44:
She doesn’t look a day over 30. Maybe even younger, so there must be something to her skincare regime.
The 44-year-old fashion designer revealed on Instagram Stories that she’s using an anti-ageing product made by Dr Barbara Sturm who’s known for her “vampire facials”…
Victoria decided to try the range last week after she’d taken her daughter, Harper (7), to get a facial at Sturm’s clinic in Germany.
The “Vampire Facial” is a procedure that involves withdrawing a patient’s blood, processing it to isolate the platelet-rich plasma (PRP), and then re-injecting it to erase wrinkles and create a more youthful look.
The procedure is low risk, takes between 90 and 120 minutes, and you’ll be back at work the following day.
The benefits of the treatment go much further than simply looking younger, too.
Normal blood contains only 6% platelets. However, in PRP, there is a concentration of 94% platelets, which translates to a powerful growth factor “cocktail” with a variety of growth factors and cytokines.
This stimulates cellular tissue regeneration to dramatically accelerate healing.
For this reason, this treatment is very successful in treating the signs of ageing, as well as assisting in hair regeneration and even muscle and joint degeneration.
You can find out more about the treatment by visiting the Skin Renewal website. You can also make an appointment with one of their experts to find out which treatment is the best one for you.
If it’s good enough for Posh, it’s good enough for me.
