If you’re like the millions of other people who follow Kim Kardashian on social media – 211 million, to be exact – you may remember a somewhat frightening photo documenting her experience with the Vampire Facelift. Within days, countless men and women across the country were calling their local aestheticians to find out how they, too, could get this Hollywood-worthy treatment. In the years since, both the Vampire Facial and Vampire Facelift have continued to be among the most in-demand skin rejuvenation treatments among patients of virtually every age and skin type.

The expert teams at JEM Medspa, with convenient locations in Elmhurst and Orland Park, IL, are proud to offer the most advanced and effective treatments and procedures available, including the Vampire Facelift and Facial, to help patients look and feel their very best. Learn more about each treatment here, including how they differ and find out whether a Vampire Facial or Vampire Facelift may be right for you.

What does a Vampire Facial do?

In addition to giving you some jaw-dropping photos to post, the Vampire Facial offers a number of exciting anti-aging benefits that can improve your skin complexion from the inside out. Common concerns that can be dramatically improved with a Vampire Facial include:

  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Dry skin
  • Skin laxity/loose skin
  • Acne scars
  • Dark spots
  • Sun damage
  • Rough skin texture
  • Dull skin

So, how does a Vampire Facial actually work? We’re glad you asked!

The Vampire Facial works by combining microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy. To begin, you’ll lie in one of our comfortable, private treatment rooms, where a small tube of blood will be drawn from your arm. While the skin is being cleansed and prepared for treatment, your blood will be separated and purified in our on-site centrifuge machine to isolate the platelet-rich plasma. Using the specialized SkinPen® microneedling system, your technician will create tiny micro-injuries to the surface of your face, neck, and/or torso. These micro-injuries don’t damage the skin but, instead, trigger your body’s healing response and the natural production of collagen for firmer, tighter, more youthful-looking skin. Finally, your nutrient-rich PRP serum will be applied to the treatment areas and allowed to infuse deep within the skin to further enhance collagen production, healing, and skin tightening.

What is a Vampire Facelift?

If you’ve been doing your research on the Vampire Facial, chances are good that you’ve come across the Vampire Facelift, too, and you may have questions about which treatment is right for you. We can help!

The Vampire Facelift offers a similar set of benefits as the Vampire Facial and also combines microneedling with PRP therapy but, believe it or not, takes things one step further. With the addition of injectable dermal fillers, the Vampire Facelift can help restore lost volume in the face, plump up the lips, and fill deep lines and wrinkles for a striking, smooth new look.

Should I get a Vampire Facelift or Vampire Facial?

Both treatments have similar principles, healing times, and benefits, making a choice between Vampire Facial vs. Vampire Facelift somewhat difficult. Because the Vampire Facelift includes injectable dermal fillers, it is often reserved for patients with more advanced signs of facial aging and/or those who want to plump up naturally thin lips and hollow cheeks. During your initial consultation for skin rejuvenation in the Chicago area, our knowledgeable team will carefully examine your skin, discuss your concerns, and determine which treatment is most fitting for you.
