The reality TV star who's currently pregnant with Kanye West's baby is caught on camera crying out in pain as the doctor draws blood from her arm and re-injects it into her face.
Kim Kardashian went to the extreme to stay beautiful and young. In the latest episode of "Kourtney and Kim Take Miami", the pregnant girlfriend of Kanye West visited a clinic specializing in the so-called "vampire" facial to try out the latest beauty technique.
The skincare treatment involved drawing blood from her arm. The plasma was then extracted from the blood and was injected back into her face using nine tiny little acupuncture-style needles. "It stings a little," the doctor warned her before starting the procedure.
Though she got some numbing cream slapped on her face to help ease the pain, Kim still cried in agony during the painful process. "Owww," she wailed. "Oh my God. I will never get a facelift if it feels like that." Her BFF Jonathan Cheban, who was in the room, couldn't bear to watch it.
She later assured, "We're all good," as she recovered with ice packs on her face to ease the pain. She even posted on Instagram a picture of her blood-splattered face. It's believed that the treatment could help reduce wrinkles and improve the skin's tone and texture.
Kim is not the only celeb who will do anything to stay young. Oprah Winfrey likes anti-aging cream SkinMedica, which contains human foreskin. Madonna chooses to use oxygen machine to keep her skin looking young. Demi Moore opts for leeches to detoxify her blood, and Gwyneth Paltrow allegedly loves a snake venom beauty cream.
Elsewhere, Kim was pulled over by police in Calabasas for driving a car with tinted windows. The pregnant reality TV star had a run-in with the cop while on her way to her family's home. Lucky for her, she was let go with a warning only.
