VIDEO: "Vampire Facials" Linked To Two HIV Diagnosis


A recent beauty trend involving blood facials is leaving at least two people with a life altering disease. State health officials in New Mexico say two former clients of a spa that offered "vampire facials" have been diagnosed with HIV. Both clients reportedly received the injection-related procedures at the VIP Spa in Albuquerque. The treatment gained popularity in six years ago when Kim Kardashian posted about it on Instagram. Tests revealed the strain of the virus was the same in both clients, increasing the likelihood that the HIV infections may have resulted from the procedure at the VIP Spa. The spa was shutdown in September after it failed a health inspection.
