Victoria Beckham's Beauty Secret: Sheep Placenta and Gold Flakes!
Mon 21-05-2012

Victoria Beckham is known for her innovative beauty treatments. 

Victoria Beckham's latest beauty treatment consists of sheep placenta and gold flakes!
She regularly visits her dermatologist Dr.Harold Lancer to get this bizarre beauty treatment.

Dr.Harold Lancer who works out of luxurious offices in Rodeo Drive, is keen to ensure his placentas come from only prime New Zealand livestock.
The doctor told Daily Mail: "These sheep are completely untouched by the modern world"
"It is very important as they have no impurities in their system whatsoever.The stem cells we harvest are amniotic cells, which means no harm is caused to the animals."

"The stem cells are preserved because they are full of rich nutrients that fight free-radical damage to the skin and make it more radiant,"he said.

"After the cells are extracted, they are flash-frozen and then mixed into a gel containing gold flecks and other ingredients, which is spread over the face."

Victoria tweeted about her love of Dr Lancer’s products, including his 70 pound-a-tube skin moisturiser Nourish.

And Zee News reported: 

Her 90-minute placenta facials start with a regular exfoliation.
 
The face is exposed to steam, then red LED light from a handheld device, which opens the pores, before the gold-flecked gel is applied.

Dr Lancer’s other clients include Jennifer Lopez, Kim Kardashian, Renee Zellweger and Charlie Sheen’s ex-wife Denise Richards.

“The LED light dilates the blood vessels and makes the skin more receptive to the stem cells,” Lancer said.

“Stem cells are a buzzword in today’s world but not everyone understands what they do,” he said.

He claimed the protein-rich cells ‘give significant nutrition to the skin’.

“The stem cells interact with your own cells, basically telling them to wake up, produce collagen and stimulate new cell growth. Gold particles are included as gold helps to diffuse the stem cells and acts as the transdermal delivery system to help it work into the skin,” he said.

After the gel, the beauticians run a galvanised metal probe over the skin ‘to ensure the product penetrates deeply’.

Finally, oxygen is added ‘to continue to enhance activation of the stem cells and stimulate the skin’.

“The treatment provides instant results. Patients report decreased wrinkles and a glowing complexion,” he added.
