Later, Kardashian West posted a selfie covered in blood to her Instagram account. Kim Kardashian has been studying law for almost a year, and it seems that she is putting her newly acquired knowledge to the test. Your first major case? Suing an Alabama doctor for using your name to promote your treatments. Turk told me that the Dermapen facial treatment is intended to stimulate collagen and elastin fibers, making your skin smoother and clearer.
It has become so popular that its beauticians do 90-100 of these facials a month. Charles Runels, the inventor of the infamous treatment, has apparently done his best to attach both Kardashian's name and face to it. But one of his most famous Instagram-famous facials, the vampire facial, is one he will never try again. No one can forget images of Kardashian's blood-stained face as she smiles in the doctor's chair as she heads for a seemingly painful procedure, which has now been dubbed as the Vampire Facial.
While seeing the vampire facial call can be daunting, Dr. Kashlan says it's one of the safest treatments you can do. The procedure, which uses her own blood and a microneedle technique using PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) to revitalize the skin, was a painful experience for Kim, so when an Alabama-based doctor used her name and image without her permission to promote it, she filed a lawsuit. It has earned the nickname “Vampire Facial” because it involves drawing the patient's own blood and removing the plasma from the blood and reintroducing the plasma into the skin.
The vampire facial gained a lot of prominence when he appeared on the reality show, something that Dr. McKeown felt torn about. The vampire facial is a very controversial treatment in the world of facial aesthetics, as Dr. Darren McKeown explains.
Kim's lawyer also alleges that Dr. Runels, who refers to himself as the 'Doctor of Orgasm' and the 'Calvin Klein of Medicine', had already been asked to remove the photos and his name and, although he denied his request, he also asked him for money. Kourtney Kardashian still loves getting her blood facials despite sister Kim Kardashian West's current vampire facial lawsuit. Kardashian contacted Runels and her trademark lawyer to demand that she stop using her name and likeness without her consent, not only did she refuse to remove her photos and references to her; she had the recklessness to demand that she pay her,” it read.
And while the founder of KKW Beauty confirms that she and her sister Kourtney Kardashian actually obtained Vampire facials seven years ago during the filming of Kourtney and Kim Take Miami, she certainly never licensed her name in connection with the procedure. Kardashian seeks to hold defendants accountable for their blatant disregard for their well-established rights. Kardashian West, a self-proclaimed lover of any treatment that makes her skin look and feel soft, does recognize the benefits of PRP facials if she can handle it.
