At the best med spa Los Angeles, we offer both microneedling and PRP for your skin rejuvenating needs.
Platelet-rich plasma therapy, otherwise known as PRP or the vampire facial, is a wonderful anti-aging therapy for your skin. It is your natural plasma, which is the liquid portion of your blood.
Microneedling is a dermaroller procedure that uses a series of small needles to penetrate the skin. It is used to rebuild collagen in your skin.
Both procedures are done to restore youth and reduce wrinkling. They are fantastic and simplistic treatments to give your skin healthy longevity.
When coming to your appointment for microneedling or a vampire facial Los Angeles clinic, there are a few things you should be aware of. Though both procedures are minimally invasive, there are some things to keep in mind. Let’s go over some do’s and don’ts before and after your treatment so you can be prepared.
DO hydrate and eat a light meal before treatment. The PRP treatment does require a minor blood draw which can lead to you feeling a bit woozy if you don’t have anything filling your belly.
DO call if you have a fever or aren’t feeling well. Illness or infection can be counterproductive to the treatment and will need to be rescheduled.
DON’T wear makeup–for reasons you can probably guess! Wearing any kind of makeup, lotion or foundation will interfere with treatment. You will need a freshly cleansed face with no additives.
DON’T smoke! Not only is it unhealthy for you all the way around, smokers generally do not benefit from the treatment. Smoking directly affects the skin, making improvements difficult.
DO expect some skin irritation to show, like redness or slight swelling. This is to be expected and will clear up shortly.
DO apply sunscreen if you plan to be outdoors. Anytime you have any skin treatment done, you will want to protect your skin from harmful UV rays.
DO avoid washing your face, swimming, going to a sauna or any other interaction with hot or chemically treated water. This will only need to be applied for the first three days. It is important not to expose your skin to high heat or chemicals following either procedure.
DON’T opt for any other facial treatments for the first two weeks, as your face will need to heal appropriately first.
