When Kim Kardashian West had her vampire facial, she admitted in a blog post that she regretted it, explaining that the procedure was rough and painful. Just last year, Kim published a post on her old blog explaining how she regrets getting a vampire facial, but Kourtney was still a fan of the treatment. She revealed last year in her now-deleted app that she never underwent the bloody procedure again and calls it one of her biggest beauty regrets. If you've ever watched an episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, you know that Kim constantly undergoes painful cosmetic treatments in the name of beauty, such as getting stretch marks laser-removed from her body.
But apparently, even the master of “beauty is pain” draws a line somewhere. It's been three years since Kim Kardashian West's infamous Vampire Facial, but the photos are still making as big a buzz as the day she was seen covered in blood on national television for the sake of beauty. Kardashian West was never asked to endorse it, but her trademark lawyer contacted Dr. Runels to demand that he stop using her name and likeness without her consent.
Not only did he refuse to remove her photos and references to her; he had the audacity to ask for money! In a recent blog post, Kardashian West shared the story behind that time she got a vampire facial and sparked an internet craze over the skincare trend. In a particularly memorable episode, Kardashian found herself as a guinea pig for the terrifying beauty treatment known as the Vampire Facial. If he hadn't been filming Kim and Kourtney Take Miami, there's a chance that Kardashian would have backed out before the facial was completed. 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.
According to documents obtained by PEOPLE, which were filed under the U. S. District Court for the Central District of California, Kim, 39, filed the lawsuit against Charles Runels, M. D., who refers to himself as the 'Doctor of Orgasm' and the 'Calvin Klein of Medicine'.
Kourtney Kardashian still loves getting her blood facials despite sister Kim Kardashian's current vampire facial West is suing. Vampire facial treatment involves drawing blood, separating platelets in a centrifuge, and then injecting that plasma rich in growth factors into the face with a microneedle tool to ideally help generate collagen.
