The growing trend of "vampire" facials is not just a Halloween treat. The procedure promises to regenerate the skin and make a person look younger, using their own blood. Medical technicians draw a vial of the patients blood.

The blood is then spun in a centrifuge. This separates the red blood cells from the plasma, which they claim has healing powers. After numbing the face, tiny holes are poked on the patient's skin, then the blood plasma is smeared in.

Results from the vampire facial are supposed to last months 6 months to a year. The F-D-A says it has not approved any platelet rich plasma products for use in cosmetic facial procedures.
