'Vampire facial' may have caused infection at NM spa

Written by admin


Customers at an Albuquerque spa are being urged to get tested for HIV, after getting “vampire facials.”

You might have heard of the procedure — Kim Kardashian has Instagrammed about it.

It’s a non-surgical procedure in which a patient’s blood is drawn then treated and partly re-applied to the face.

Health inspectors say procedures at this particular New Mexico spa could lead to the spread of not only only HIV, but also Hepatitis B and C.

At least one customer is believed to have developed an infection that could be linked to a procedure performed at the spa.
