Vagina ‘vampire therapy’
Not so long ago Kim Kardashian grossed everyone out when she had a ‘Dracula facial’ and posted a selfie with blood all over her face.
The vampire-like treatment works by drawing blood and injecting the platelets back into your skin to stimulate collagen production.
But if you thought that was extreme, a new procedure using a similar method has been launched – but this time it is for vaginas.
Called Rejuvula, it injects ‘platelet rich plasma’ into vaginal tissue and claims to tighten and ‘rejuvenate’ the vagina, promising increased sensation, stronger and more frequent orgasms and a boosted libido.
Its founders also boast of health benefits, helping women who suffer pain during intercourse and improving urinary incontinence.
Because it is the individual patient’s own cells, there are no risks of infection or allergy, experts say.
The procedure is the brainchild of Dr Daniel Sister and medical aesthetic nurse Claudia McCloin and is currently only available at their clinics in London and Ireland respectively.
The treatment takes just half an hour and will set you back £800 – but the doctors say you would need a top-up after a year.
A 52-year-old who had the procedure said: ‘It completely changed my world.
“I’m getting married in a couple of months and decided to have the treatment as a special treat for my husband to be.
“This is my second marriage, and I want my sex life with my new husband to be as exciting as if we’d met in our 20s.
“But the fact is I’ve had three kids since then, and things down there are not quite they used to be.’
“I started to notice some changes in sensations on my way home but the next morning it was heightened and sex was amazing.”
