Facelift Alternative

The secret to eternal youth is the ominously named but pleasantly non-invasive vampire facelift, which uses the platelet-rich plasma from your own blood to rejuvenate the skin. Dr. Sandy Skotnicki draws a vial of blood from her patient’s arm, spins it in a centrifuge until the red cells strip off, then injects the plasma into the skin. The fluid—which Tiger Woods and Kobe Bryant have used to repair athletic injuries—is said to contain healing agents that promote cell growth and collagen production, making it the perfect remedy to tighten sagging flesh under the eyes and chin. $1,200.
