Microneedling / Vampire Facial
After microneedling a sunburn-like effect is normal. Your skin may feel tight, dry or sensitive to touch. Some redness may also be present and in some cases, patients may experience slight bruising that can last for 5-7 days and temporary swelling for 2-4 days.
Avoid strenuous exercises that cause sweating as well as jacuzzis, saunas, and steam baths for up to 48 hours.
Use only mineral makeup after 24 hours.
Sleep on your back with the head of the bed elevated to minimise swelling or pain as needed.
Treat the skin gently by washing it with a gentle cleanser, cool water, and using only your hands to pat dry no earlier than 4 hours after treatment.
Peeling may start 3-5 days after the treatment. You may notice skin dryness and flaking which is due to an increased turnover of skin cells. DO NOT pick, scratch, or scrub at treated skin! Important information: You must allow the old skin to flake off naturally and keep it moisturised at all times. Talk to your skin specialist about which products to use.
Once your skin no longer feels irritated, you may start your regular skin care products again. You will notice continued skin improvement over the months following the treatment.
For best results from Microneedling: We recommend follow-up and repeat microneedling treatments every 4-6 weeks, with a series of 3-5 treatments depending on your personalised care plan.
