Can you get HIV from a Vampire Facial? Are PRP Injections safe?

You may have heard that an unlicensed spa in New Mexico has now been linked to spreading HIV by way of injectable facial procedures, including PRP, aka the Vampire Facial.

Because of this recent news story, I thought sharing my Vampire Facial experience from 2021 was important.

I have indeed done my own PRP at home, and although it’s possible, it can be challenging.

Inside my Skin and Wellness app, you can find many who demonstrate doing their own PRP and Vampire Facials.

Last week’s video covered getting four vials of Sculptra, and that video is linked here. This week, we are covering PRP or the Vampire Facial.

I can’t imagine going to a medspa and, during a procedure, being exposed to HIV.

The investigation tracked current and former spa A clients who received new HIV diagnoses from 2018–2023. The report identified 59 clients considered at risk for HIV exposure (20 received vampire facials, and 39 received other injection services, such as Botox). The three HIV diagnoses were reported to the New Mexico Department of Health by clinicians.

The CDC report marks the first documented cases of HIV transmission through nonsterile cosmetic injection procedures.

This is a tragic scenario and one easily prevented. This medspa was obviously using dirty needles and contaminated spaces, which facilitated the spread of HIV.

This is why choosing a reputable location when dealing with blood is critical. It doesn’t have to be the most expensive place; it simply needs to be licensed, have referrals, and appear clean.

There is no excuse for reusing needles or microneedling pin cartridges; these elements are inexpensive, and I can’t understand why they would disregard the simple practice of using sterile needles.

AB CHECK

My weekly check-in as I attempt to build abs. I am keeping Myself Accountable! No Abs but at least I am still lean in this area which makes me happy!

FACE CHECK

You can see my temples have become fuller from doing mesotherapy sessions.

Two days ago, in the App, I placed Mayster PLLA around my face, and that’s why I have a few bruises. 

I also have bruises in today’s footage, so let’s do a 

2021 vs. 2024 face comparison.

You can see that my temple area is fuller today than in 2021. I think the biostimulators are working, and I love the gradual nature of it.

If you’re confused about what to look for when getting a PRP / Vampire Facial, this is a great example of how one should unfold.

VAMPIRE FACIAL AND PRP INJECTION PROCESS

PRP was pulled into a syringe, my face was prepped and cleaned.

PRP is placed under my eyes, forehead, and lower face.

O2 TREATMENT DURING TREATMENT

Did you see how she opened sterile packed needles and microneedling cartridges? 

Your provider should always open these in front of you; this way, you ensure the needles are sterile.

I know these procedures always look incredibly painful… that’s because they are, but as you start doing them, you will build up stamina; I know I have. I actually couldn’t believe I wasn’t flinching more as she poked me.

I call this “BEAUTY STAMINA.”

Remember, your dreams have a purpose; giving them value is up to you. Happy Memorial Day 😘

If you’ve ever wondered who are these people online, who document their lives hour by hour…how did that become a business…don’t they get embarrassed…is it hard posting daily…how do they stay consistent…

I think about these things too!!!

There is no one telling me what to do…what to post…what to create…etc…
This might seem liberating, and it can be…however carte blanche isn’t always as romantic as one might think.

Staying motivated daily is what any business requires, especially an online independent one.

The “consistency skill set” I’ve earned from being online aids me in other goals I set for myself. It comes down to self-discipline and the continued belief in yourself that you can do hard things.

When you accomplish one thing, that personal success should fuel you toward your next accomplishment. I truly believe it’s the small, consistent steps, the micro-decisions you make hourly, that bring you success.

It will never be one thing. Stop thinking that way! 

In fact, be elated that it’s not simply one thing since we make numerous mistakes daily. Instead of self-loathing, keep an optimistic mindset that you will never give up on yourself. 😘

Hot yoga on Saturdays can inspire anxiety in me…

I was explaining to my friends that Saturday, hot yoga classes always give me arrival anxiety…

Mentally I need yo prepare because I know they will be packed…mat to mat.

As I enter, the heat cloud hits me in the face from a previous class and the walls are already dripping with perspiration 😂🙈

I need to arrive at least 30 minutes before class to start acclimating to the heat and secure a spot where I feel comfortable.

My 6am week day classes are very different from Saturday mid morning classes.

During the week, 6am isn’t  as packed, so the class initially isn’t as hot. By the end of class the heat will be fully optimized however, initially, it’s not as intense as a Saturday class. 

With this in mind, during the week, later mid morning classes are actually as intense as the Saturday classes but I rarely go to weekday mid morning.

Those who attend 10am everyday are beasts!!!

Today, was a beautiful hot class. Thank you @drewusantos for a great flow…and you gave enough time for “dancing Sheba” thank you 🙏🏻😂

I like arriving to class early and giving myself time to acclimate and stretch it out. 

🎁Give yourself the gift of arriving early to classes.🎁

If you get anxiety arrive early and settle in. Taking this extra step makes my flow even better because I don’t feel rushed or overwhelmed.

Happy Saturday my friends…
I promise to work on an epic MELANOTAN peptide video for this week. I have some new ideas and thoughts on it after using it for a month…stay tuned…

I’m headed home from yoga to start writing ✍️😘 then I’ll have to film 🎥😂🙈 I want to lay out too 😆 I’ll get it all in:)

Comment “DRESS” for this easy and inexpensive Amazon dress.
It’s a knit so it packs well. I’ve already washed it and it came out the same as when it went in. It has a cute cut out that will be flattering for most.

SAVE For LATER:) quick GYM routine ⬇️ And can you believe how tan I am? I can’t!!! 

Currently I’m using MELANOTAN 2, in order to build a better skin sun protection. This peptide has increased my melanocytes melanin production.

Quick Fact:
Did you know that we all have the same amount of melanocytes in our skin. I’m super fair and apparently I have the same number of melanocytes as someone from African decent. The key difference; my melanocytes don’t produce as much melanin as someone who has olive or black skin tones.

MELANOTAN 2 increases the alpha-melanocyte-stimulating hormone aka MSH

“In our skin, we have pigment cells and we have hormones that regulate the activity of those pigment cells. So what Melanotan-Il does is mimic the action of those hormones and upregulate the activity of our pigment cells.” 

MELANOTAN 2 increases MSH and this signals to our melanocytes to make more melanin. This peptide that I inject daily as I load is helping me protect my skin from the sun by coating my cells in melanin. 

My body can produce melanin as evident by my current color. However, my MSH rarely activates so little melanin is produced. With the MELANOTAN 2 peptide my skin is finally acclimating to the sun.

I have a sun allergy and this is helping me avoid having the polymorphous rash eruption. Basically my skin breaks into red itchy welts and water blisters. It’s extremely painful, itchy and bleeds. 

My skin can now acclimate to the sun versus needing steroids to go out by the pool or beach.
