What is the Vampire Facelift?
Using a combination of several advanced treatments, the Vampire Facelift can decrease the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and other signs of aging. A Vampire Facelift combines microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and dermal filler treatments. We use these treatments to soften, brighten, and smoothen your complexion. During the microneedling with PRP part of your treatment, we use a specialized handpiece that has thin, tiny needles, which make micro-injuries to your complexion. Our team then applies your nutrient-rich PRP so it deeply absorbs into the skin and nourishes it. When we combine these treatments with dermal fillers, it can enhance your complexion and decrease wrinkles and fine lines. At JEM Medspa in Elmhurst and Orland Park, IL, we offer Vampire Facelifts to help patients rejuvenate their skin. Located in the beautiful suburbs of Chicago, please call either location to learn more about this popular and innovative treatment.

Who is a Candidate For a Vampire Facelift?
The Vampire Facelift improves the overall look and health of your skin and decreases wrinkles, fine lines, and deep folds. This treatment can also reduce the appearance of surgical and acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and large pores. For patients who have volume loss in the skin, we can place the dermal fillers in the lips, cheeks, or other parts of the complexion that look concave. The Vampire Facelift helps patients attain softer, brighter, smoother, and more rejuvenated skin. At your consultation, our team listens and discusses your cosmetic goals and develops a tailored treatment plan.
How is a vampire FAcelift performed?
To start your treatment, a member of our team begins by drawing a small amount of blood from your arm. Usually, we take around four tablespoons or enough to fill a vial. The vial is placed in a centrifuge to separate the plasma components from your blood, which creates the PRP serum. Next, we clean your skin to remove any oils or lotions and perform the microneedling treatment. Microneedling uses a specialized device that has thin needles. These thin needles create micro-injuries and allow the PRP serum to easily soak into the skin. As the PRP serum absorbs into your skin, we place the dermal fillers in the needed areas. After finishing the treatments, our team cleans and moisturizes your skin.
What can I Expect after a vampire facelift?
Following your treatment, we will provide detailed aftercare instructions. You may also resume your daily activities without any required recovery time. Our team highly recommends avoiding excess sun exposure. Immediately after the procedure, patients should see visible improvements, but they will continue to get better as the collagen production increases. Some men and women may need to receive a series of treatments. When we create your treatment plan, we will discuss how many follow-up procedures you may need, when to schedule them, and how often.
Vampire Facelift FAQ
How effective is a Vampire Facelift?
A Vampire Facelift may not produce visible results immediately, but the growth factors from the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) serum help to boost growth for stronger, healthier skin. Your technician will go over what to expect in your consultation, so you know what will happen after your treatment. After a thorough consultation, our team will curate a personalized treatment plan that best fits your unique needs and goals.
How often should I get a Vampire Facelift?
Typically, the results of a Vampire Facelift can last from 18 – 24 months. When follow-up treatments are needed will vary from patient to patient, depending on the overall health and age of your skin and your complexion goals, so our team will help you curate your long-term skin care plan. Your technician at JEM Medspa will be able to recommend how frequently you should get treatments to maintain your best results.
How long does it take to recover from a Vampire Facelift?
Following your Vampire Facelift, you may experience some slight redness and/or inflammation. However, this should subside within a couple of days. Your overall results will become noticeable in around 4 – 6 weeks and will continue to improve as new collagen is produced.
Is the Vampire Facelift procedure painful?
The procedure involves some discomfort, as microneedling can cause a sensation similar to light scratching on the skin. However, a numbing cream is typically applied to minimize discomfort during the procedure.
How long does the Vampire Facelift procedure take?
The entire procedure usually takes around 1 to 2 hours, including the time required for blood processing and preparation.
How many Vampire Facelift sessions are needed?
The number of sessions needed varies based on individual goals and the condition of the skin. Many people see noticeable improvements after just one session, but a series of treatments spaced a few weeks apart might be recommended for optimal results.
