What is a Vampire Facial?
At Juvanew Medspa, we can enhance the microneedling experience with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) for a Vampire Facial. PRP uses plasma filled with healing platelets. We extract this from your own blood, making it completely safe to apply to the skin after microneedling.
The micro-channels prime the skin to receive topical treatments. The PRP improves cellular growth, increasing the rate of skin turnover and bringing healthy new skin to the surface. It also speeds healing, decreasing any downtime and improving the results of your treatment. PRP encourages the cells to produce collagen even faster, so you may see results sooner.
Is There Any Downtime with Microneedling?
You will initially experience some sensitivity and soreness for the first few days. The skin may also look red, but you can cover this with non-irritating makeup. You will need to use a gentle cleanser with no harsh ingredients for several days. We may recommend applying hyaluronic acid, a molecule that helps lock moisture into the skin and will encourage collagen production. Juvanew offers medical-grade products to care for your skin after treatment, including sunscreens to protect your healing skin.
Am I a Good Candidate for Microneedling?
Most people make good candidates for microneedling as long as they do not have any serious health problems. You should have reasonable expectations about your results. If you have a history of forming thickened or unusual scars (keloids), this treatment may not be suitable for you. Discuss any blood-thinning medications you take during your consultation.
