Important Notice from the Cellular Medicine Association–the recent incident in New Mexico took place at a center illegally using our name (Vampire Facial®). Qualified medical professionals handle blood all day long without serious problems and this procedure is even safer since it’s done with the patient’s own blood. But done improperly–people can be killed by cross-contamination. The providers in this article were imposters.

This is the official website to find those who have been certified to do the procedure by the Cellular Medicine Association and where you can read the research–click to see our directory<– Providers found there agreed to use devices approved by the FDA to both prepare the blood and to do the micro-needling. Anyone advertising the Vampire Facial® who is not listed there is stealing intellectual property and cannot be trusted. See PubMed & our website for more research

The Vampire Facial® name is owned by Charles Runels (see the website for the US Patent & Trademark office), although the name is currently under attack by those who would want free use of the name to sell devices and procedures without regard for our standards.

Someone using the name —as described in this article (click)—to trick people is exactly like someone making a fake Tylenol bottle and putting poison in it. Please—buyer beware! Only providers listed on our official website should be trusted to do the procedure.

We do our best to shut down the imposters. We list those we have found to be imposters/infringers at the website for the Cellular Medicine Association. But, the legal wheels turn slowly and expensively so people still use our good reputation to trick people.

Woman dies in the office of a massage therapist advertising the Vampire Facelift® (if you read the article, you’ll see the person actually died from a buttocks injection of something other than blood (probably something from the hardware store–NOT from a Vampire Facelift®). This woman would have never been accepted into our provider group and was using our name illegally.

Woman possibly contracts infectious disease from someone illegally using the Vampire Facial® name (again someone who never was part of our group, could never have been part of our group, and who was using our name-“Vampire Facial®” illegally).

Here’s the secret legal story behind the world’s most famous celebrity selfie

The Secret Legal Story Behind Kim Kardashian’s Famous “Vampire” Selfie
Altar™..the Latest Vampire Skin Therapy™

Recently, People reported on Kim Kardashian’s most famous selfie—her face covered in blood after a Vampire Facial®. Here’s the legal story behind the photo; how Dr. Charles Runels, MD created the legal mechanism of the Vampire Facial® procedure to protect women from life threatening diseases.

Because the procedure involves a device that punctures the skin (microneedling), the procedure can spread disease if done improperly. Some of the cheaper devices used to do the microneedling will suck blood up into the handle; therefore the next patient could potentially be inoculated with the blood-borne pathogens from all of the people previously treated with that same device—medically similar to having sex with everyone previously treated.

Also, the device used to prepare the patient’s own blood for topical treatment after the microneedling component of the Vampire Facial® is done, should be approved by the FDA for preparation of blood to go back into the body. Kits made to analyze blood for testing should not be used.

The FDA does not approve a person’s own blood, nor does the FDA approve procedures. But, the FDA does and should approve both the device used to create the microneedling-puncture wounds as well as the device used to prepare the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) used drip onto the skin after the microneedling.

Providers of the Vampire Facial® should also understand which conditions can be treated and which should not be treat with the procedure. Other techniques, such as how to provide proper anesthesia should also be understood by providers.

Dr. Runels (called the “Orgasm Doctor” by Cosmopolitan & by the Guardian) thinks of himself as a “Calvin Klein of medicine,” & initially designed the Vampire Facelift® procedure. Out of that process, he designed the Orgasm Shot®, the Vampire Facial®, Vampire Wing Lift™, Vampire Beast Lift®, and the Priapus Shot® procedures—all created Dr. Runels combining science with the principles of art.

To help keep patients safe, Dr. Runels secured trademarks with the US Patent & Trademark Office so that he could protect patients by limiting advertising of these procedures to providers who agree to follow specific methods and to use FDA approved devices. These marks serve to identify providers who understand the design in the same way a Calvin Klein tag goes on a garment manufactured by another person but who follows Mr. Klein’s design.

The Cellular Medicine Association (CMA), founded by Dr. Runels, certifies providers to do the above procedures and coordinates and supports the research and clinical practice of physicians using cellular medicine for the improvement of health, beauty, and sexual relations. Anyone can claim to be doing microneedling, but only those certified by the CMA can claim to be doing the Vampire Facial®. The provider groups include over 2,000 doctors in 54 countries who contribute immensely to the ongoing research, development, & teaching.

Altar™, the latest Vampire Skin Therapy™

This month, Dr. Runels announced the release of Altar™—a new Vampire Skin Therapy™ — that enhances & protects the beneficial effects of the Vampire Facial® procedure. Altar™ can only be purchased from certified Vampire Facial® providers.
