An investigation is underway after two clients were infected with HIV through a 'vampire facial' at a Spa. The health department is now offering free and confidential testing for HIV, Hepatitis B, and Hepatitis C for clients who went to the Spa in New Mexico. The 'vampire facial', involves injecting nutrient-rich plasma from your own blood into your skin on your face. This procedure is supposed to make your face look younger.
Patients are advised to make sure the person doing the facials open new syringes to draw blood and change the micro-needle pen in front of them.
