The trend of cosmetic surgery is spreading like a wild fire worldwide. From breast enlargement to facial and body contouring, there is nothing that cosmetic surgery cannot do. However it also comes with drawbacks just like most inventions comes with a drawback.

A spa in Alburquerque, Mexico, received a cease-and-desist letter in mid-September after the business was found to potentially expose its clients to HIV and other blood-borne diseases while the spa was doing ‘Vampire Facials or a type of plasma-rich protein facial. In common man’s language, vampire facial uses one’s own blood to help promote the healthy activities of the skin cells, since our blood consists of serum and red blood cells, the serum of which contains platelets and white blood cells. It is considered as one of the largest skin care treatments that is on trend, totally different from Halloween makeup. Models including Bar Refaeli and Kim Kardashian are big time fans of the new vampire facial followed by their fans. This fan following, rather turned dangerous for the fans.

Vampire Facial – “Come As You Are and Leave As You Wish”

Researchers stated that the process of vampire facial includes initial blood draw followed by the isolation of the platelets by running the blood through a centrifuge. The client will then receive microdermabrasion or micro-needling just before his platelet-rich-plasmas are spread all over the face. Although this process may seem a bit too much in terms of facial and skin rejuvenation but it is in fact the central to an evolving understanding of skin physiology and its quality.

Careless Platelet-Rich Fibrin Procedure may be a Regret for Lifetime

A client of the VIP Spa developed an infection resulting from a spa procedure. This resulted in inspection and all other clients of the spa were asked to get tested for Hepatitis C, Hepatitis B, and HIV.

A board-certified internal medicine physician stated that plasma contains the essential proteins and nutrients that helps to stimulate new collagen and skin growth. The plasma that is layered on top of the face and re-injected into the skin with micro-needling devices creates tiny punctures in the skin. However, if these equipment are not sterilized properly between facials or not disposed well before use, this may prove to be dangerous.
