The Power of Platelet-Rich Plasma
The human body has a remarkable capacity to heal itself. Regeneration of new tissue is accomplished by the natural production of stem cells. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) involves the application of concentrated platelets rich in bioactive proteins, which release growth factors to stimulate cellular regeneration and accelerate tissue repair. PRP was initially used in wound healing, dentistry and the treatment of sports injuries, but its use for treatment has now evolved to address aesthetic concerns and physiological dysfunction. PRP is one of the most advanced, effective natural treatments for cellular rejuvenation throughout the body.
How Does PRP Work?
A PRP treatment begins with a simple blood draw and can be completed within an hour. Your blood is spun in a unique centrifuge that separates plasma and platelets from the rest of the blood. The plasma, now highly concentrated with rich platelets, is collected in syringes and is injected back into your tissues where it’s needed. The growth factors stimulate stem cells to create new, youthful tissue in areas like the face and scalp, and in sex organs, muscles and joints. It’s like turning back the clock, and what was old and damaged is repaired and made new. It’s the essence of regenerative medicine, and the beauty of it is the PRP procedure uses what your body has produced, so your body will readily accept the treatment without reaction or rejection. PRP procedures are minimally invasive and, typically, patients experience very little discomfort with no downtime.
Advantages of Using PRP
Because PRP is extracted from your own blood, it alleviates the risk of allergic reaction, rejection or skin sensitivity. More than 60,000 procedures involving the injection of PRP into various parts of the body have been performed with no side effects or complications reported.
PRP therapy is swiftly becoming one of the most popular treatment methods to address a variety of health and cosmetic issues, including:
- Wrinkled or sagging skin
- Frown lines, crow’s feet
- Erectile dysfunction
- Urinary incontinence
- Sexual wellness
- Hair regrowth
Research suggests that as the study of this treatment continues, PRP therapies eventually may be able to treat myriad other medical conditions in addition to the ones listed above.
Scientists have known for years that unipotent stem cells lie dormant in the skin and provide the building blocks for healing when you sustain a burn or cut. Until recently, physicians had no convenient way to stimulate these stem cells to grow new tissue.
The Vampire Series is among the first set of procedures to harnesses this technology in the field of aesthetics, using the growth factors found in the blood – specifically the platelets – to activate the unipotent stem cells in the skin and stimulate these cells to grow new, younger-looking skin.
The Vampire Facial®
The Vampire Facial® is a very simple yet incredibly effective strategy for rejuvenating the face. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) derived from your own blood is applied and worked into the skin with a professional micro-needling tool. The micro-needling tool creates micro punctures in the skin, thus activating the collagen and elastin cascades to create new cells and rejuvenation. The PRP is used to stimulate stem cells that exist in the face.
PRP is rapidly becoming one of the most useful natural treatments in aesthetics. Each of these procedures promises to turn back the hands of time. With this technique, isolating elements from the blood, which can then be injected below wrinkles, folds and even acne scars, can rejuvenate the skin. Because PRP is extracted from your own blood, it alleviates the risk of allergic reaction or skin sensitivity.
Novus Success Stories
When my daughter visited us for spring break, she said: “Mom you look like you’re glowing!” The great thing is, no one can really put their finger on what exactly I’ve done (unlike cosmetic surgery or makeup), all they notice is something looks good. The PRP treatment is really just a natural beauty enhancer, and for the first time, I feel beautiful shopping at Trader Joe’s in sweatpants. – Melody R. 40s
My experience with Stephanie was amazing, I had a vampire facial and she explained the entire process well and answered any questions I had. I did not feel any pain and even though the results take several weeks to show, I have already received compliments that my face looks smoother and my complexion more even. I would highly recommend Stephanie to anyone. – Autumn K. 50s
Loved Novus! Had a PRP facial and a PRP facelift, and I love it! Can’t tell you how it changed my skin and filled my deep wrinkles, especially in tear trough and cheeks. My skin is glowing and I can’t believe how much of a difference it makes to have my cheek filled out. I love it! – Victoria A. 50s
What I like about Novus is the amazing and incredible Wolff’s! Besides that, the staff is super friendly. I love all the treatments that are offered to promote sexual wellness in natural ways, especially the PRP and stem cell technology. Novus has improved my life by offering trustworthy services. It eliminates the worry of falsely trusting and having the person behind the needle or treatment be dishonest with the results. The exact opposite can be said about Novus and Stephanie Wolff. She’s the most caring and knowledgeable medical professional I’ve ever met. She’s truthful, compassionate and has integrity in everything she does. I’m grateful to be her patient! The vampire facial and facelift have significantly IMPROVED my skin and appearance!! It’s the best skin treatment I have ever used to help reduce acne scars, fine lines, and wrinkles, as well as skin pigmentation and fullness. I am a huge believer in the power of PRP! It really works! – Mary C. 30s
