LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department says Maria Gutierrez has been arrested and accused of performing "vampire" facials illegally.

The procedure involves taking blood from a patient, separating it, and putting it back into the face with needles.


According to the arrest report, police received a call from a doctor who treated a patient after she allegedly got a "vampire" facial from Gutierrez.

The doctor told police Gutierrez wasn't a licensed registered nurse.

Gutierrez was arrested one day after undercover detectives scheduled an appointment with her.

Police indicate she admitted to not having a license.
