What can you expect on the day of your Vampire Facial?
Since a Vampire Facial uses your blood as a basis for the platelet-rich plasma serum, your Vampire Facial will begin with a blood draw. A single vial of blood is drawn from your arm. Your doctor will then use a centrifuge to separate the platelets from the other parts of the blood.
Next, your face will be cleaned thoroughly and you will undergo a microneedling or microdermabrasion procedure. This step clears away dead skin and allows for maximum penetration of platelets into your skin. Finally, the PRP serum will be applied and allowed to absorb into your skin.
What can you expect for recovery after your Vampire Facial?
You should expect some redness and tenderness in the treated areas after the procedure. This can last from anywhere from 24 hours to a week, depending on your skin’s reaction to the procedure and the amount of microneedling required for your particular goals.
Generally, patients recover more quickly from a Houston Vampire Facial than other skin-resurfacing treatments, because the PRP serum helps to speed healing. While your skin is healing from your Vampire Facial procedure, you’ll need to be careful of sun exposure.
The process of microneedling creates tiny channels in the skin that help topical treatments better penetrate the various layers of skin. Certain skin care products can be used to support and enhance your Vampire Facial treatment after your session. This also means you need to be cautious about applying anything other than physician-recommended skin care products during the healing phase.
