How will my face feel right after a Vampire Facial?

After your Vampire Facial, you may experience some redness and swelling on your face, similar to a sunburn. This is a normal reaction to microneedling since it's designed to create tiny punctures in the skin to stimulate collagen production. You may also feel some tightness or sensitivity in the treated areas in the hours after your facial.

It's essential to avoid touching or scratching your skin after this procedure. Doing so can introduce bacteria into the micro-wounds and cause infection. It's also vital to avoid direct sunlight and wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30 to protect your skin from UV damage. It's also best to avoid wearing makeup for at least 24 hours after the procedure so your skin can breathe and heal.

What can I expect in the days following a Vampire Facial?

In the first 24 – 48 hours after a Vampire Facial, patients may experience mild discomfort or itching as the skin begins to heal. Using a gentle moisturizer to help soothe your skin and promote healing will typically relieve this feeling. It's important to avoid using any harsh products on your skin during the healing process, especially scrubs or exfoliants that can irritate the skin and slow down the healing process.

In the week after a Vampire Facial, you should start to see improvements in your skin tone and texture. Your skin should start to feel smoother and softer at this point as well. You may even begin to notice a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles and see a brighter and more youthful complexion in the mirror.

During this time, it's still crucial to continue to protect your skin from the sun and avoid any harsh products or treatments.

When will I start to see the results of my Vampire Facial?

In the weeks following your Vampire Facial, your skin will continue to improve as collagen production increases and your skin cells regenerate. Your skin may feel firmer and more elastic, and you may notice a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

The results of this microneedling and PRP facial can last for several months to a year, depending on the individual. Regular treatments can help maintain the benefits and improve the overall health and appearance of your skin.
