Intimate Wellness at The Face Place cosmetic clinic for Botox in Auckland

Vampire Academy

Dr Charles Runels, inventor of The Vampire Facial and Vampire Facelift (made famous by Kim Kardashian), travelled to New Zealand in early 2015 to train Dr Catherine Stone in a series of trademarked treatments. Since their roaring success, now global trainers Dr Cat and Dr Kirshni host a popular 2-day, interactive workshop on the Vampire Treatment Series, including the following:

• Vampire Facial ®
• Vampire Facelift ®
• Vampire Breast Lift ®
• O-Shot ®
• Priapus Shot ®


Sunday 7 August & Monday 8 August 2022


The Face Place, Level 1, 10 Northcroft Street, Takapuna, 0622


Inventor Dr Charles Runels (via video),
Dr Kirshni Appanna, and
Dr Catherine Stone

Course Outline:

Day 1 (Sunday): 9.00am – 7.30pm: Welcome, Dr Charles (via video), Vampire Facial, Vampire Facelift and Vampire Breastlift.

Day 2 (Monday): 9.00am – 6.30pm: O-Shot, Priapus Shot and how to Market the Vampire Procedures.

We look forward to welcoming you to our clinic, The Face Place MedSpa, at 10 Northcroft St, Takapuna, Auckland.

Lunch will be provided for you both days, and if you are attending both days, we would love to take you out for dinner on Sunday evening in beautiful Takapuna after training. Please let us know if you have any specific dietary requirements.

How to prepare:

We recommend you read the kindle version of the books by Dr Charles Runels (‘Activate the Female Orgasm System’ and ‘The Vampire facelift’). These books have been prepared to give to clients to help them understand the treatments, and to provide a more subtle way of marketing treatments. We have the paperback copies of the books available in our waiting room and treatment rooms, and if a client is interested, we give them a book to take away (with our contact details in the front for future reference – you never know where the book might end up!). This has been an excellent way of growing our practice. Although they are not beautifully written, they are very simple and easy to read, and patients find them very informative and compelling. You will receive a free paperback copy of both the books, and have the opportunity to purchase more during and after training.

At the end of the course, you will have the option to apply for Membership* to the Group for a nominal monthly fee payable directly to Dr Charles Runels. As a member you have the opportunity to use the licensed trademarks for the Vampire Treatments, and be listed on the official websites as a Provider. You also get access to the ‘members only’ area, which provides you with regularly updated training videos, practice hints and marketing advice, all of which are highly valuable to your ongoing practice. You can de-register at any time, however if you do so, you must cease using the trademarked names. This transaction is with Dr Charles Runels as the trademark holder, and is separate to any fees paid for attending the training course.

Learn from the best.

The Central Valet drop-off point is located on the corner of Gore and Tyler Streets, opposite Takutai Square. Drive in via the entrance on Gore Street, where you’ll be greeted by a friendly valet concierge. Just leave your engine running, take your ticket and off you go. Cars dropped here will be valet parked for you at Britomart Car Park. You can retrieve your car at any time by taking your valet ticket to Britomart Car Park Reception on the corner of Britomart Place and Scene Lane.
