How Long Does It Take to Recover from a Vampire Facial?

There is minimal recovery from a vampire facial. Most patients experience redness and minor irritation to the skin after their treatments that will subside in 2-5 days.

What Is a Vampire Facial?

Microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a relatively new approach to treating a variety of skin concerns, from hyperpigmentation to scarring. This technique employs tiny needles that penetrate the outer layers of skin in order to stimulate natural healing processes within.

Using PRP with microneedling allows the body to generate even greater amounts of its own growth factors, thereby accelerating the type of repair and regeneration needed for healthy, glowing skin.

Overall, this innovative treatment method has been shown to be highly effective in improving many common skin issues, making it an increasingly popular choice for those looking to achieve their best complexion yet.

Are You a Candidate for a Vampire Facial?

Most people are good candidates for this procedure. However, those with sensitive skin may find that PRP microneedling causes unwanted side effects like redness or irritation. Additionally, people who suffer from certain medical conditions like diabetes or autoimmune disorders may not be able to receive this treatment safely.

What to Expect Post Vampire Facial

After your Vampire Facial, you may have some mild redness, swelling, and bruising. These side effects usually last for a few hours to a couple of days.

Vampire Facial Recovery & Timeline

We’ll give you some helpful information on protecting the area that’s been treated. For example, you need to avoid touching the skin with certain chemicals and avoid the sun for at least a few days. Otherwise, the treatment is unlikely to interrupt your scheduled activities at all. You will begin to see the treatment’s effects within 1 – 2 weeks of your appointment.

Our enriched platelets can rejuvenate the skin and target problem areas like acne scars, wrinkles, and volume loss when administered to skin.

Vampire Facial FAQs

What does a vampire facial do for your face?

A Microneedling with Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment is a facial rejuvenation procedure involving using fine needles to create tiny punctures in the skin. This stimulates the body’s natural healing process, which can help to improve the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and scars. PRP is created from a patient’s own blood, and it contains high levels of growth factors and other biologically active proteins. These substances can help promote collagen and elastin production, leading to healthier, more youthful-looking skin.

How often should I get a vampire facial?

Maintenance sessions can be scheduled 2 – 4 times per year. To increase the benefits of this treatment, ask our team about other facial rejuvenation procedures to maximize results.
