(Newser) – So you’ve already bought the Edward Cullen panties, and you’re not sure how to continue expressing your love for all things vampire? Consider a "vampire facelift." No, it doesn’t make you thirst for blood, but it does take blood from your body and injects it in your face. “Alas, it won't make your face immortal or make your skin paler or anything like that,” Dr. Anthony Youn tells Salon.

Youn thinks the procedure “may be just a vampire craze,” but says ultimately it’s similar to other facial fillers that smooth out wrinkles. It also costs about the same as other, synthetic injections, but lasts longer. Will it remain popular long enough for tween Twilight fans to get wrinkly and want to use it? Youn isn’t sure, but says “probably the procedure will last longer than its nickname. I mean, the fat injection isn't called the blob facelift.”
