How Does a Vampire Facial Work?

A PRP facial (or vampire facial) utilizes the healing powers of Platelet Rich Plasma in a less invasive form than a vampire facelift. During a vampire facial, PRP is applied using a microneedling device that gently penetrates your skin with microneedles, creating tiny holes that trigger your skin’s natural healing response. Your skin’s natural repairing ability creates dramatic results with new collagen and elastin production, revealing an intensely refreshed look with a wide range of improvements, including:

  • Even skin tone and brightness (restored healthy skin glow)
  • Diminished acne scars and large skin pores
  • Improved photodamaged skin/age spots/hyperpigmentation
  • Rejuvenated crepey (thin or wrinkled) skin under your eyes, neck, and décolletage
  • Improved fine lines, loose skin, stretch marks

* Please Note: Individual results may vary.

How Does a Vampire Facelift Work?

Our medical providers have received advanced training to perform vampire facelifts that adhere to specific, highly controlled standards for superb aesthetic effects. Injected into key areas of your face, vampire facelifts create rejuvenating changes with minimal downtime.

Over the next few months after your PRP treatment, new collagen production will promote further skin renewal and regeneration.

A vampire facelift helps to:

  • Replenish volume to your face
  • Reduce fine lines and wrinkles
  • Tighten your skin
  • Improve pigmented irregularities
  • Restore a healthy glow to your skin

Frequently Asked Questions about PRP Treatment

Vampire facials and facelifts aren’t nearly as creepy as they sound. Below, you’ll find the answers to some of our frequently asked questions about PRP treatment at Stamford’s NOVO Medical Aesthetics.

What is PRP and how does it work for the face?

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a concentrated portion of your blood full of potent growth factors with a high ability to heal the skin. PRP works as follows:

  • Stimulates stem cells to generate new tissue
  • Form new blood vessels (or “neovascularization”) to increase blood flow to the skin
  • Increase collagen and elastin production (combats skin aging)
  • Cellular turnover generates skin renewal over the next few months after treatment
What happens during a vampire facelift?

The procedure begins by drawing blood from your arm and isolating Platelet Rich Plasma from whole blood using Magellan centrifuge. Then our MD injects PRP into strategic areas of your face, triggering your body’s natural healing response of skin repair – stem cells growth, new collagen and elastin production, and improved blood circulation. As a result, wrinkles, discoloration, or age spots fade. An even skin tone and texture is restored with more vibrant, radiant, youthful skin.

What happens during a vampire facial?

We will draw your blood, using a centrifuge to separate the PRP. Then our provider uses a microneedling device to create multiple micro-punctures, driving the growth factors into your skin and stimulating your stem cells. The next step is “painting” Platelet Rich Plasma into the micro-punctures, soaking the tissue with growth factors for further stimulation with skin tightening and rejuvenation.

Is there downtime with a PRP facelift?

PRP recovery time includes some skin tenderness and redness, which usually dissipates within several hours. There is no downtime in a vampire facelift. However, minor swelling and bruising can occur temporarily at the injection site. This usually subsides within several hours.

Is there downtime with PRP facials?

You’ll experience overall redness and swelling of your skin as a result of microneedling, but this will subside within 24-48 hours. You may have some peeling and dryness that will dissipate within a week, revealing refreshed, luminous skin with continued improvements in the weeks following treatment.

How long do the benefits of a vampire facelift or facial last?

PRP revitalizes your skin from deep within, providing long-lasting, age-defying improvements. You’ll notice optimal results within four to six weeks following your treatment with benefits lasting up to a year or two, depending on your body’s unique response.

Is a PRP facial or facelift right for me?

PRP is entirely natural, utilizing your own blood to provide rejuvenating benefits to your skin. Since it is your blood, there’s no risk of any adverse or allergic reactions. Our expert physicians would love to help you discover the benefits of PRP treatments to determine if it’s the right treatment for you during your personal consultation.

Bald? Have You Considered PRP Hair Restoration Therapy?

If you suffer from male or female pattern baldness, PRP hair restoration therapy can help you achieve beautiful, voluminous hair. Using a concentrated portion of your own blood saturated with healing growth factors, a PRP injection into your skin can activate your stem cells and stimulate the activity of dormant hair follicles, promoting new hair growth. Scientists consider vampire hair therapy to be among the most effective treatments for female and male pattern baldness, apart from surgery. PRP therapy can help you increase your hair count, improve hair sickness, and reactivate the growth phase of your hair cycle. This treatment is minimally invasive with little to no downtime and few side effects.

Frequently Asked Questions about PRP Hair Restoration

Anyone experiencing hair loss is essentially a good candidate for PRP treatment at NOVO Medical Aesthetics. However, those with early hair loss tend to respond best. Consistency is key – treatment is usually performed once a month for the first 3-4 months. Below, you’ll find answers to our frequently asked questions regarding PRP hair restoration therapy. Should you wish to learn more, please feel free to contact us to schedule an appointment for a consultation.

How is PRP hair therapy done?

Treatment begins with a standard blood draw from your arm. We’ll isolate potent PRP with Magellan TruPRP centrifuge. Rich in growth factors, the PRP is then carefully injected by our physicians directly into targeted hair follicles in your scalp. The injections can be combined with microneedling to boost hair follicle awakening. The process is meticulous, with injections across the scalp approximately at every half-inch over the area of thinning hair. Typically, the entire process takes less than an hour.

When should I see results with PRP hair therapy?

Optimum results from PRP hair therapy can be seen 6-8 weeks following your treatment, as PRP reactivates dormant hair follicles and stimulates new hair growth. It’s important to keep in mind that PRP therapy can be a part of a multifaceted program to treat hair thinning and loss. Our onsite physician may prescribe medications that help promote hair growth. Topical treatments can also be used.

Is there downtime with PRP hair therapy?

As with any injection, there is a risk of some swelling and redness that will subside quickly following treatment. Otherwise, you’ll be able to resume your regular activities immediately following treatment.

How many PRP hair therapy treatments will I need?

We typically recommend a series of treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart. We’ll work with you to create your personalized treatment plan, depending on your goals and how you respond to therapy.

How can I get started with PRP hair therapy?

Our physicians would be happy to assist you in determining your treatment plan and goals. Take a step toward matching your appearance with who you are inside. Call us to schedule a consultation!

The Orgasm Shot®: The Answer to Female Impotence

According to major studies, 30-50% of women suffer from sexual problems ranging from difficulties with arousal and natural lubrication to the inability to achieve an orgasm. Aging, childbirth, and menopause are all contributing factors. However, NOVO Medical Aesthetics is dedicated to bringing the latest treatments, including the Orgasm Shot® (O-Shot®), at our offices in Stamford and Wallingford. Our physicians trained with the inventor of the O-Shot® (Dr. Runels) to provide the best vaginal rejuvenation therapy for our patients. This revolutionary treatment battles vaginal dryness, painful intercourse, loss of vaginal tightening, and urinary incontinence, all without having to undergo surgery!

Frequently Asked Questions about the O-Shot®

How does the O-Shot® work?

The O-Shot® is a non-surgical vaginal rejuvenation treatment that uses your own blood platelets (PRP) to release multiple growth factors to activate your stem cells, which can then generate healthier and more functional tissue in the vagina. Injected into your vaginal tissue, the platelets help revive vaginal and clitoral tissue, resulting in increased lubrication, as well as the ability for arousal and climax. It also produces significant improvements in mild-to-moderate urinary incontinence.

What should I expect from this procedure?

During the procedure, our physician will remove your blood using an FDA-approved centrifuge to isolate your Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). We’ll numb your clitoris and vagina with a cream. Using a tiny needle, our physician will inject the PRP product into your clitoris and upper vaginal area – the regions that are most important for sexual arousal. The entire procedure takes about 40 minutes, and there is no post-procedure recovery time necessary. Results usually happen about three weeks after the procedure and last anywhere from 12-18 months. Although each patient’s response can be different, the following have been reported after receiving the O-Shot®:

  • Increased sexual desire
  • Increased natural lubrication
  • Greater arousal from clitoral stimulation
  • A tighter vaginal opening
  • Increased ability to have a vaginal orgasm
  • Stronger and more frequent orgasms
  • Decreased pain for those with dyspareunia (painful intercourse)
  • Decreased urinary incontinence

If you’d like to learn more about the O-Shot® for female arousal or urinary incontinence, please call our office to schedule a consultation!

The Priapus Shot® for Natural Male Enhancement

Unfortunately, with age, many men experience a number of sexual changes that affect relationships with their partners. This may include a decrease in erectile function with the loss of sexual desire or sensation. NOVO Medical Aesthetics is proud to offer a procedure that can enhance and rejuvenate male sexual performance. The Priapus Shot® (P-Shot®) offers a holistic treatment for male intimacy issues. By applying the principles of a vampire facelift or O-Shot®, the P-Shot® utilizes the body’s natural healing abilities to help increase desire and libido, sensation and pleasure, size and girth, and the firmness and duration of an erection. These results are almost immediate with minimal pain or downtime after the treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions about the P-Shot®

How does the P-Shot® work?

Like THE O-SHOT in women, THE P-SHOT uses the natural growth factors found in Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). PRP is what your body uses to regenerate and repair injuries. PRP extracted from your blood, when injected, stimulates the growth of new tissue and blood vessels, increasing circulation. That enhances blood flow to the corpus cavernosa, the structure of the penis responsible for erection. Increase in blood flow results in firmer, harder erection. PRP injected into Glans Penis (tip) boosts sensitivity.

How is this procedure performed?

Our physicians went through specialized training with Dr. Runels to offer PRP injection treatments. Our physician will remove your blood and put it in the Magellan centrifuge, isolating Platelet Rich Plasma and growth factors. We’ll apply a topical anesthetic to ensure that your treatment is comfortable. Using a tiny needle, the doctor will then inject PRP into the head and the shaft of your penis.

What should I expect from this procedure?

The entire procedure takes about 40 minutes. There is NO post-procedure recovery time. Results typically start the day of the procedure. There should be a noticeable immediate increase in size, and many also enjoy improved performance and sensation right away. It generally takes 1-3 weeks to see the full effect. The Priapus Shot® results can last up to 18 months and do help other therapies work better. If you’ve been looking to revitalize your sex life, contact us today to schedule a consultation. We’d be happy to help you get started on your journey toward a new you!
