Many people visit our office for everyday dental care and end up asking questions about our cosmetic procedures. We understand that everyone wants to look their best and welcome their curiosity! Today, we’ll be answering some of the most commonly asked questions we get regarding our Vampire Facial® treatment.
Does the Vampire Facial® Hurt?
Many were first exposed to this advanced facial treatment by celebrity Kim Kardashian, who famously dismissed the procedure as rough and painful. According to comments published in Marie Claire, she was unable to accept numbing creams or painkillers due to her pregnancy in 2013. In the years since, many who have undergone treatment with improved techniques (and recommended pain management measures) found the procedure to be completely tolerable.
How Long is Recovery for the Vampire Facial®?
Because the process involves micro-needling, most people walk out of the office with some swelling or redness. While results will vary from person to person, most people will notice improvement in the first 2-3 days. In general, a full recovery will take about one week.
Can I Wash My Face After a Vampire Facial®?
For maximum results, we recommend avoiding washing your face for at least 5 hours after treatment. You should also avoid high-heat situations which will cause you to sweat, including extended time outdoors, steamy showers, visits to the sauna, hot yoga, and vigorous exercise. When it’s time to wash your face, be sure to dry off with a fresh, clean towel.
