Russian President Vladimir Putin’s daughter has reportedly been undergoing ‘vampire facelift’ treatment in Germany as the Russian invasion of Ukraine continues.
Katerina Tikhonova, 35, has reportedly been flying to Germany regularly to have a controversial beauty treatment.
The face lift is known for its unusual technique of taking the patient’s own blood and then injecting it back into their skin to treat wrinkles, German newspaper Bild has reported.

The treatment shot to fame after star Kim Kardashian had it done and costs roughly €4,000 per session.
Tikhonova has also reportedly had Botox and hyaluronic acid injections to treat frown lines on her forehead and laugh lines on her mouth.
One commenter on Bild’s website wrote: “Putin’s daughter wasted thousands of euros on a weird beauty procedure – does she, just like her daddy, want to be younger and live forever?”
The news follows Putin’s aggressive rants against pro-western Russians.
He once said an appetite for European cuisine and climates must mean people are mentally unwell.
According to flight records obtained by iStories and German magazine, Der Spiegel, Putin’s youngest daughter has flown to the western nation of Germany “more than 50 times.”
Tikhonova is the youngest of Putin’s daughters from his marriage to ex-Kremlin first lady Lyudmila Putina.
Anti-war Telegram channel Utro Fevralya mocked Tikhonova’s expensive beauty treatments.
They said: “Her dad is so protective of his biological material that he even carries a personal dry toilet with him everywhere he goes, his frivolous daughter Katerina Tikhonova… squandered valuable genetic biomaterial right and left.
“Tikhonova allegedly underwent a Vampire-Lifting procedure. Blood is taken from patients, processed and injected again to fight wrinkles.
“Putin’s daughter had to pay about €4,000 for each visit. But the price is not as important as the fact that now it turns out that NATO has Putin’s biomaterial and DNA… it’s scary to think about what they can do with it.
“Perhaps they have already processed it in bio-laboratories… And even now war pigeons, gulls and titmice are on their way to [his official residence near Moscow] Novo-Ogaryovo [to attack him].”
The investigation also revealed that Tikhonova is in a relationship with Igor Zelensky, the former head of the Bavarian State Ballet.
She previously dated Russia ’s youngest billionaire Kirill Shamalov, 40. They reportedly split around 2017 when she started the relationship with the ballet star who was married with two daughters and a son to choreographer Yana Serebryakova.
The report said that a Der Spiegel source at the Bavarian Ballet said that Zelensky was “most likely the partner of Putin’s daughter” even before they had asked about his family ties.
