Can this $500 "vampire" facial give you younger skin?

Following is a transcript of the video.

Jody Stewart: So, I'm in my late 50s, and I have definitely noticed, as the years have passed, more wrinkles, duller skin. I've gone through menopause. I used to have really oily skin. I had cystic acne. I've done a lot of things to treat all of that, but it's really changed over the years, and it's just kinda dull and bland now, and I need something to recover some of that youth that I used to have.

Claudia Colombo: OK, so you came to the right place. So, I'm going to do the Fountain of Youth facial, aka vampire treatment, and the vampire treatment is a high-performance facial. And what that means is I use advanced skin-care techniques plus high-performance and active ingredients, powerhouse ingredients, that are known to turn back the clock. No. 1, I always start with lymphatic drainage, which is a must to just get everything flowing properly, increase circulation, increase hydration, and to help with nutrient delivery. The second part of the facial includes a custom micro-channeling tool that is infused with powerful ingredients, and the powerful ingredients are key to stimulating cell regeneration and hydration and really to deliver nutrients into the skin. So, the ingredients consist of peptides, which are proteins and bodybuilders for the skin. We have growth factors, botanical stem cells, and hyaluronic acid, just to name a few, but all of it is basically like skin food. I continued on with a lifting and toning massage. I do a lot of different vibrational techniques, lifting and toning techniques to, again, just help with circulation, help with brightening the skin. All of it put together really helps to improve all the fine lines and just give her a better glow and the toning effect that the massage techniques do. So, I did a peptide thread lift and peel with a combination of using [polylactic] acid, which is that bio-stimulatory dermal filler treatment, and that literally fills in lines and brightens and smooths out the skin. So, the final mask I did is the vampire mask, and that mask also has specific ingredients, so it really creates this almost, like, suction effect on the skin because of the delivery system, so, again, that [polylactic] acid ingredient helps to tighten and firm and stimulate collagen. And it also has hyaluronic acid in there. It's a hydrojelly mask, so it's deeply hydrating, really soothing and cooling, and it has goji berries in it, so that's what gives it that red color, but goji berries are also high in antioxidants, and it stimulates our youth hormone, HGH. So, the immediate effect is a lifting and plumping effect, and that has a lot to do with the massage and the ingredients that I've used. So, instantly, you do see that, and the skin is much more hydrated, of course. It's sometimes three to more shades brighter.

Jody: I feel like my skin is really awake. It's very tight and firm, feels really hydrated. My skin feels so soft now. I don't even recognize it, actually. Is that my face? Is that me? Feels really great, it feels really rejuvenated. That would be a good word to describe it. So, it's been about a week since my vampire facial, and I would say that, overall, it was definitely something I would do again. Immediately after the experience, my face was kinda numb, but it was definitely plump. It was really, diminished lines and very resilient. My skin felt really young. That lasted for about a day, and then after that, I noticed that my skin, you can see now, even now, it's much brighter than it was, more hydrated, and, you know, definitely has encouraged me to be a little bit more diligent with the products that I use. Sometimes, I skip some steps, but now I feel little bit more dedicated to try maintaining the results. So, I definitely think it was a great experience and definitely worth doing something, specifically if you have a big event coming up, 'cause your skin is gonna look multiple years younger.
