When it comes to beauty we’re usually pretty open to trying new treatments, even when they...um, might seem alittleoff the rocker. So we reached out to Emily Wise, M.D., a Massachusetts-based dermatologist, to get her expert opinion on whether or not these weird treatments loved by celebs actually do the job they claim to.

Kim Kardashian + The Vampire Facial

You probably saw Kim Kardashian do this treatment onKeeping Up With the Kardashiansand had an instant OMG reaction. The procedure take a patient’s own blood and spins it down to get plasma that is rich in platelets. Red blood cells are then discarded, and what is left behind is a serum that contains numerous growth factors. “The thought is that this helps to stimulate growth of collagen and helps promote blood flow,” explains Wise. But Wise also warns that there is a lack of large studies validating the true long-term efficacy of this treatment. “It has been said to give a plumping or lifting effect, but the results are unpredictable and likely are not long-lasting,” she says.

Demi Moore + Blood-Sucking Leeches

We can’t imagine why anyone would volunteer to let leeches suck their blood—but Demi Moore proved us wrong, telling David Letterman that she relied on leech therapy to look so damn good. “The thought here is that leech saliva contains numerous proteins and, of those proteins, there is one that acts to prevent clotting and dilate the vessels,” says Wise. Dilating the vessels in turn will increase local blood flow to the area, sure, but Wise warns that there’s really no scientific evidence proving any long-terms effects from an anti-aging and detoxifying perspective. “I would advise choosing a better studied, safer (and less gruesome) treatment to achieve a youthful glow,” she says.

Victoria Beckham + The Bird Poop Facial

The bird poop facial was ALL over the Internet, thanks to the gross factor (most people spend their life avoiding putting any kind of excrement on their face and/or body). And according to British gossip magCloser, the former Spice Girl is a huge fan. The facial consists of Japanese nightingale droppings that are then made into powder form (and sanitized, to note!). Sounds nasty, but it's not bad for you. “The thought is that the droppings contain an enzyme that helps to cleanse and exfoliate the skin, making it feel soft and refreshed,” says Wise. “While I haven't tried this myself, I can't see any reason not to if one were so inclined.”

Jessica Simpson + The Fish Pedicure

While traveling to Japan to film an episode of her former reality showThe Price of Beauty, Jessica Simpson put her feet into a large tank where fish then “sucked” off the dead skin. Since they have no teeth, they don’t actually bite you, but instead the sucking motion exfoliates in a gentle way. “While this is generally considered safe, I would not recommend for anyone who has an open cut or skin breakdown, diabetes, or any other immunodeficiency,” says Wise. “This is because there always the potential risk of infection—either from the fish themselves or from an improperly cleaned foot tub.”

The art of decorating your vagina was something that Jennifer Love Hewitt openly talked about in an interview with Conan O’Brien. The non-invasive and temporary process basically involves waxing your pubic hair and then applying temporary crystals to the area, in a decorative fashion, of course. “Aside from possible irritation from the crystals and adhesive, I can not say that there are any other true risks to this procedure as long as it is done at a clean, reputable facility,” says Wise.
