What is the Vampire Facial?
The teams at JEM Medspa in Elmhurst and Orland Park, IL are happy to offer our Chicago community the popular Vampire Facial. This treatment helps rejuvenate the complexion by encouraging the production of collagen with SkinPen® microneedling and platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP). Using a specialized handpiece that has small needles, we gently glide the microneedling device over the complexion to create micro-injuries on the face, neck, or torso. This process helps the skin increase collagen, which smooths and tightens the complexion. Vampire Facials also use your PRP to deeply nourish the skin. By applying your nutrient-rich PRP, it helps the skin heal and encourages the growth of new skin cells. When combining both of these powerful skin rejuvenation procedures, patients can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, scars, blemishes, and other skin problems. Please call JEM Medspa to schedule an appointment, and let us help you achieve your skin care goals.

Men and women who want to improve the appearance and texture of their skin are good candidates for the Vampire Facial. For patients with dry skin, saggy skin, wrinkles, fine lines, and acne scars, this treatment could help improve the overall health and look of your complexion. Vampire Facials may also help men and women combat the effects of sun damage, which can cause a variety of skin conditions, such as brown spots or rough-textured skin. Unfortunately, a Vampire Facial is not a good treatment option for everyone. Certain conditions that can prevent you from undergoing a Vampire Facial include:
- Utilizing Accutane for acne
- Being pregnant
- Having active acne, eczema, or rosacea
Our Vampire Facial Technique
In one of our private treatment rooms, we will start the procedure by drawing about four tablespoons of blood from your arm for the PRP therapy. Next, we will place the small vial in a centrifuge machine so it separates the stem cells, platelets, and growth factors from the rest of your blood. During this process, we will start the microneedling part of your treatment. Using innovative microneedling technology, the specialized device has tiny needles, which create micro-injuries in the skin. These micro-injuries do not damage the skin; instead, they encourage the production of collagen. Once we have completed your microneedling, we place the PRP serum on your complexion and allow it to soak into the skin. After the PRP has completely absorbed, we will cleanse your skin.
What to Expect
Following your Vampire Facial, you may experience mild swelling, bruising, and inflammation. For three days, our team suggests avoiding a few things, such as applying makeup, swimming in pools, and using abrasive skin care products. Strong chemicals, bacteria, or exfoliants can impact your delicate skin and may cause negative side effects. If you plan on being outdoors, we highly recommend avoiding excess sun exposure, using sunscreen, and wearing protective clothing. Because the skin needs time to heal and increase collagen production, optimal results are usually visible after the first couple of weeks.
