You don’t have to undergo invasive treatments to see a difference in your skin and improve its overall appearance and health. You may have heard about or seen some of your favorite celebrities praising the Vampire Facial, and now we have made it accessible to you. At ShineMD Medspa & Liposuction Center, located in Houston, TX, we are proud to offer highly effective Vampire Facials that will help make a visible difference in your skin after one treatment.
What Are They?
Vampire Facials are specialty facials that involve the use of PRP, platelet-rich plasma, to rejuvenate the skin and combat the signs of aging. They utilize the healing properties within the blood as well as the human body’s ability to heal and restore tissue when prompted to do so.
What Does It Treat?
Undergoing this facial is an effective way to treat the signs of aging as well as problematic skin conditions such as fine lines and wrinkles, minor skin laxity, and other skin issues. It will help you get tighter, firmer skin. During your consultation at our Houston office, you can discuss your concerns with one of our skincare experts to see if this treatment will help you get the results you’re looking for.
How Does It Work?
During your treatment, you will first receive hyaluronic-acid based dermal fillers to help add volume to your skin and address the signs of aging that have resulted from volume loss. These dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid to create the most natural look possible and help plump the skin that has lost volume and become hollow looking.
The Blood Draw
Next, one of the trained specialists at our Houston office will draw a small amount of your blood with a very thin needle. We will then put the vial of blood into a machine called a centrifuge, which will spin the blood around for several minutes. The spinning action is what separates the blood into three categories: platelet-rich plasma, platelet-poor plasma, and the rest of the blood. The platelet-rich plasma is the portion of your blood that will be applied to your face.
The PRP Application
There are different ways to apply this PRP to the face to rejuvenate the skin based on your needs, and very often a form of microneedling is used during the treatment to create micro-channels into which the PRP can be readily absorbed. Microneedling also creates micro-injuries and the body responds to these injuries by increasing collagen production in the treatment area.
How Long Does It Take to See Results?
The results that come from this facial are gradual. When PRP is applied topically to your skin, the growth factors in your blood can rejuvenate your complexion and lead to regenerated, youthful-looking skin, but it takes time. Growth factors in the PRP gradually improve the appearance of the top layer of skin, as well as the deeper layers. Patients typically begin to see the most noticeable results two to three months after their initial treatment.
How Long Do Results Last?
Once your results begin to show up after two to three months, results do vary among patients but they can last up to two years. This is not a facial that you will need to schedule every month to see a difference in your skin; you will get long-lasting results after one treatment. Once you notice that your initial results are starting to fade, you can simply reschedule one of our Vampire Facials at our Houston office to maintain your anti-aging results.
Who Is a Candidate?
If you want to address the signs of aging that have appeared on your face but for whatever reason don’t want to begin a regimen that requires you to undergo regular facials to see results, this facial may be just what you’ve been looking for. During an initial consultation at our Houston office with one of our experts, we will review your health history and discuss your problem areas to see if this facial will give you the results you are hoping to achieve.
Those who are temporarily disqualified from this treatment include:
- Pregnant and nursing women
- Individuals with severe medical conditions

What Are the Benefits of Vampire Facials?
They Don’t Use Chemicals
The benefit of Vampire Facials is that there is no risk of an allergic reaction because the only thing that is applied to your skin is your blood. This makes it a treatment option that many different people can benefit from, including those who don’t tolerate chemical-laden products very well.
At first, those who watched their favorite celebrities get Vampire Facials and post pictures on social media may have thought they were just a fad, but soon after realized that there’s a reason that these facials have become so popular: they work. They deliver results after every treatment and improve the skin.
They Deliver Long-Lasting Results
Some facials require regular monthly treatments to see consistent improvements, but this particular facial delivers long-lasting results that last up to two whole years. Those who want to improve their skin but don’t have the time to schedule monthly treatments will find that this is an effective facial that will provide results after just one treatment.
Drastic results often require drastic measures, but not this treatment. This facial will give you youthful-looking skin without the need for surgical measures. You won’t have to plan around any downtime but can schedule your treatment at a time that works best for your schedule. You won’t have to take time off work to undergo this facial but can schedule it as you would any other facial treatment.
Invest In Your Skin
When you invest in your skin with Vampire Facials at our Houston office, you’re making a much larger investment than just a facial. You’re investing in your appearance, your emotional well being, and your confidence. This facial will improve the appearance of your skin, making it healthier, tighter, and will reduce the appearance of your fine lines and wrinkles. This facial is the perfect way to look younger, feel better, and begin each day with confidence.
