"I have been going to JEM MedSpa in Orland Park for a year now. Prior to that I never did any type of facials or even removed my make up at night. I just turned 50 when I first started there and now I’m getting ready to turn 51. My face and complexion look and feel so good, nobody believes my age. I book all of my sessions with Shannon, she is amazing!! She makes me feel comfortable during my visits and is very personable as well. She explains the process of any service I do and always recommends services based on my needs from listening to what I tell her about my face. She performs my lazer hair removal and I never feel a thing. I saw a difference with the first session and now I’m on session 3 and it’s amazing the results. My favorite service is the diamond glow, and Shannon does the best job performing this service. She takes her time with my dermaplaning and face masks. While my masks are drying she provides a wonderful head and neck message. I leave there not only with my face looking fantastic but personally feeling so good about myself. Shannon takes the time to get to know her clients needs as well as personally. I have formed a great bond with her as well now a friendship. I totally recommend booking services with Shannon, she is top notch!"- T.K. / Google / Jan 05, 2023

Can I Have A Facial?
At JEM Medspa, professional facials are a good treatment option for all ages and skin types. Each facial is personalized to address patients' cosmetic concerns and goals. Typically, facials help reduce the signs of aging (fine lines, wrinkles, and dry patches), improve sun-damaged skin (spots, rough texture, uneven tone), cleanse (acne and clogged pores), and brighten the complexion. Additionally, professional facials help teens and adults who experience chronic skin conditions, such as widespread acne, rosacea, and sensitive skin.
How do facials work?
During your consultation, we will create a custom treatment plan that outlines skin care products and techniques. While we perform the facial, patients can relax in a comfortable treatment chair. Every facial is personalized; however, most treatments start with a deep cleanse to eliminate any dirt, oil, and makeup. After the skin is cleaned, steam is used to open clogged skin pores so we can easily extract blackheads and whiteheads. Usually, this step is followed by exfoliation, either performed manually or with an add-on service, such as a chemical peel. For additional pampering, patients can add a mask or serum to their facial. At the end of your treatment, we will apply a moisturizer with SPF to protect the skin from sun damage.
What happens After my Facial?
After your treatment, you may notice some irritation and redness, but these symptoms should subside within a day. Many patients have visible improvements in the appearance and feel of their skin immediately after their treatment. To extend the results of your professional facial, please ask one of our skilled team members about developing the best at-home skin care routine. We will provide details about when to schedule follow-up facial appointments at JEM Medspa.
How can I maintain the results of my facial at home?
JEM Medspa recommends following a consistent skin care routine at home to extend your results. We can suggest products that may benefit your skin type and cosmetic goals. It's also important to wear a hat or high SPF sunscreen when spending time outdoors. Exposure to UV rays can deepen existing creases or wrinkles.
How much does a facial cost?
The cost of a facial in Orland Park, IL, depends on the products used and whether we combine your treatment with other procedures, like BOTOX. Our specialists will develop a personalized plan based on the information we learn during your consultation. We can also give you information about easy financing options at our facility — so there are no surprises later on.
How often should I get a facial?
Patients can schedule facials several times a year to enhance the health and appearance of their skin. When received regularly, facials can remove dead skin and encourage new cell growth, which drastically improves your complexion over time. In your initial consultation, JEM Medspa can recommend how often to make appointments to keep your skin beautiful long-term.
When can I reapply makeup after a facial?
While there is likely to harm in reapplying makeup after a routine, noninvasive facial, patients are typically encouraged to let their skin "breathe" for a day or two before putting makeup back on. Applying makeup too soon after a facial may re-clog pores that were cleared with extraction during the facial and potentially could introduce unwanted bacteria that increases the risk of acne, infections, and other unwanted skin problems.
Which kind of facial should I get?
Prior to treatment, one of our knowledgeable providers will closely assess your skin, discuss your unique concerns and goals, and help you decide which type of facial may be most appropriate and effective for you. Additionally, each facial can be further customized to meet your needs.
Are professional facials really better than at-home face masks?
The tools, techniques, and professional-grade products used during an in-office facial are able to address deeper concerns that a superficial over-the-counter skincare product may not be effective for.
