missmollybee :  For the first 24 hours, they recommended I not do anything or use any products on my face other than the gel they gave me. On the second day, you can use a light cleanser or gently use a damp cloth and a moisturizer that doesn’t have vitamin C or hyaluronic acid so it doesn’t agitate the skin. Day 3 was when I started to peel so I used an oil at night and moisturizer in the day with high SPF (don’t forget to use SPF when you go outside!). 

If I get it done again, I’d probably do it on a Thursday evening so that by Monday my skin will have somewhat stabilized. You can start doing your regular routine and makeup around day 3/4 depending how your skin reacts so if you got it on a Friday, by Monday you should be fine. 

For reference, I paid about $300 ($295 maybe?). 

The nurse told me if I want to take it to the next level, I can do the next iteration of microneedling (vampire facial). They basically take blood from one of your veins and then inject it into your face after it’s been needled. That’s supposed to do even more wonders for your skin, but that’s too much for even me. 😂 I draw the line at drawing blood, haha. That one was $550.

missmollybee :  yes!! My esthetician told me that too. She cautioned against going anywhere that was too cheap (too good to be true). The derm I went to also used a new microneedling pen on my face, and they made sure to show me that it was fresh out of the packaging.

Enjoy your facial! So soothing and a deep cleansing is always great!

Regular facials are more for immediate results and not long term.  I have done and need to go back and do another couple IPL facials.  Helps with damange to the skin due to sun.
