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.
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 down time.
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:
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 FaceLift® is a custom-designed procedure that combines the science of hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers, such Juvederm®, the technology of PRP and the artful eye of a skilled physician to deliver youthful, natural beauty that is as unique as you are. The dermal filler is used to create the shape by restoring volume lost in the aging process. The PRP is used to stimulate the regenerative process of the skin, creating younger skin that glows with vitality.
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 simulate 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.
The Vampire Breast Lift combines the science of unipotent stem cells and hyaluronic acid fillers to deliver a custom-designed procedure that not only restores a more youthful contour and volume but also improves skin quality.
First, volume is added in all the right places. Then, polishing and refining steps of the sculpting process are completed using platelet rich plasma (PRP). PRP ultimately contributes to the appearance of a younger-looking breasts, improving skin quality, color, texture and sensitivity.
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 if super friendly. I love all the treatments that are offered to promote anti- aging 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
Hair is a fleeting luxury for many people. Millions of people - both men and women - struggle with hair loss. The reasons for hair loss vary and can include disease, genetics, stress and hormonal imbalance. Whatever the cause, everyone wants a solution and to enjoy a full head of hair.
For women, hair loss can be absolutely devastating. A woman's hair is like her crown - it can define her whole look, feel and style. As any woman who is suffering from hair loss knows, thinning hair is a serious problem that can cause low self-esteem and deep embarrassment if left untreated.
Hair loss seems to be one of those inevitable effects of aging that most men cannot escape. It may not affect some as early as others, but it is fact that almost every man will likely face as the years tick by. However, new technology offers a permanent, effective and organic solution.
People who desire a non-surgical regrowth strategy that is safe and effective choose the Hair Regrowth Procedure. This innovative procedure combines PRP and nutrients injected into the scalp to encourage hair growth. Effective for both male and female pattern hair loss, PRP have also regrown hair in people who have alopecia areata, eyebrow hypotrichosis and other causes of non-hereditary hair loss. Effective for both male and female pattern hair loss, PRP have also regrown hair in people who have alopecia areata, eyebrow hypotrichosis and other causes of non-hereditary hair loss.
The regenerative hair regrowth treatment takes about 90 minutes to complete. First, a blood sample is obtained and is specially processed to produce the PRP. A local anesthetic is then administered to completely numb the scalp treatment area. The PRP and nutrients are combined and then administered via a series of injections over the full scalp or in a localized treatment area such as the eyebrows or beard.
The recovery from the procedure is typically uneventful. Pain is easily managed in most cases with non-narcotic analgesic medication such as ibuprofen. Some mild swelling of the forehead is occasionally seen one to two days after injections. This is normal and resolves within 48 hours. Avoiding vigorous activity is recommended until the swelling is gone. There is no other downtime or noticeable effects of the procedure. Patients can wash their hair normally immediately after the injections.
New hair growth can be seen in as early as two months, but it is typically evident in four to eight months and will continue to improve up to a year after treatment. To date, results have been maintained without additional injections for up to two years in many patients, but no long-term data are available yet to conclude that hair growth is permanent.
The Regenerative Hair Regrowth technique is a versatile tool in the treatment of hair loss for a number of causes, including:
Before Hair Regrowth Procedure, there were very few effective non-surgical options in regard to hair loss and subsequent treatment. This new method is an ideal option for relieving the trauma surrounding thinning hair.

I rarely leave reviews, unless something is bad or beyond-words incredible. I felt like I should share my experience with everyone. Stephanie was above all else, completely honest with me, and did not sugar coat anything. She told me what she thought the best course of action would be. I found the PRP Hair Restoration treatment to be virtually painless with a fast recovery time. I am beyond happy with my results and can’t say enough good things about Stephanie and the staff at The Novus Center!! I highly recommend them, you won’t be disappointed. Sincerely, Mark. - Mark G. 40s
What can I say, I got some hair back! PRP is the future, and my future looks like one less bald spot and a head full of hair. These people at Novus are awesome, they don’t bullshit, they’ll tell you straight up whether the procedure will work for you or not. It sure as hell worked for me! - Carl I. 60s
I am very excited about my results that I have gotten from the Novus Anti-Aging Center’s Hair Restoration program! I have my hair again! It was thinning drastically and I was getting self-conscious. I did not like the thought of using chemicals on my scalp and I was trying to accept my thinning hair until I heard about Novus’s program. So I tried it and every 6 weeks my hair stylist would comment on all the new growth! It was very exciting to see the new hairs and how much they grew over the months. I am completely ecstatic over having my hair return and I am no longer self-conscious! Thank you Novus!!! - Steffi J. 50s
