Well here's a line you never want to read....
(CNN)Health officials are recommending that clients who have received a "vampire facial" or any other type of injection-related service at an Albuquerque spa get tested for HIV and other blood-borne infections, as unsafe practices recently were identified at the facility.
That is not a joke... That is a real line from a real article on CNN. First thoughts, what is a Vampire Facial?
A vampire facial involves drawing a person's blood, hence the name.
"The blood is then centrifuged, meaning it's processed in a centrifuge machine where it's spun around real fast," said Dr. Ehsan Ali, a board-certified internal medicine physician known as the Beverly Hills Concierge Doctor.
Next, "the plasma is then extracted. The plasma is what has all the nutrients, the growth factors, and the protein that helps stimulate new skin, new collagen, and that's essentially what's providing all the benefit," he said.
The plasma is then layered on top of the face and reinjected into the skin using a tool called a micro-needling pen, which creates tiny punctures in the skin with miniature fine needles.
Now, why would people subject themselves to this kind of torture? Maybe this face will ring some bells for you...
Yup!!! Kim Kardashian did one so now everyone on the planet has to get one. I won't even get into how crazy this whole process sounds because I'm not a scientist and therefore I can't support or dispute whether this thing actually works.
So now I just have to focus on the whole "people who got this treatment at a spa are being asked to get checked for HIV." Like just imagine that!! You already have to go through this crazy procedure? and now you have to worry about if you are going to get aids?? Crazy stuff... Stay safe out their kids.
