Vampire Facial & # 39; has exposed spa customers to HIV, New Mexico Health Officials Say

(CNN) – Health professionals recommend clients who have received a "vampire facial" or other type of injection-related service at a spa in Albuquerque to be tested for HIV and other blood-borne infections, as unsafe practices have recently been identified.

The Department of Health in New Mexico announced on Tuesday that a VIP Spa customer has developed an infection that may be the result of a spa treatment.

Now the department is urging the client to visit the state of Midtown Public Health Office this week for testing and counseling in the areas of HIV, hepatitis B and hepatitis C.

"It is very important that everyone who received a vampire facial treatment or other injection-related service in the VIP Spa in May or June 2018 will come to the Midtown Public Health Office for free and confidential lab tests and counseling," Lynn Gallagher, secretary of cabinet for the New Mexico Department of Health, said in the announcement.
