"Beauty is pain" is what we've always been told. There's always extra things people do to look and feel good that are super inconvenient but we're pretty sure when "Vampire Facials" came around, these people didn't expect potential HIV from it!
Clients who received these "Vampire Facials" from VIP Spa in Albuquerque, New Mexico are being advised to get tested for HIV and Hepatitis B and C.
"How can a facial lead to that?" you may ask. Well, the facial got its name because it takes blood from the clients themselves and then injects the platelets/plasma under the facial skin through micro-needling!
Apparently, not only has the owner of the "spa" not had a business license since 2013 but she also has zero medical experience to legally and safely do the crazy facial procedure!
It all started when a client complained she developed an "unspecified infection" after getting the facial!
Well here's a whacky idea, gang, sure it's close to Halloween and you may be feeling festive but you should keep anything with "vampire" in the name away from your face.
Sure it may make you look younger but would you rather look like the Sanderson sisters from Hocus Pocus
or have HIV? Check out the news story from KOAT 7 here!
