ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KABC) —
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.
