Selphyl® is a proven, patented technology used by plastic surgeons and dermatologists to safely and rapidly prepare Platelet-Rich Fibrin Matrix (PRFM), which reverses the effects of aging on your skin. The doctor will collect a small amount of blood and uses that sample to create a matrix that he will apply to your face or scalp, stimulating cell growth and increasing skin volume through targeted regeneration. With the Selphyl® procedure, growth factors are released into your skin for up to 7 days. These growth factors stimulate collagen production and skin reconstruction. By stimulating the growth of collagen and new cells, Selphyl® addresses one of the major causes of aging skin. Three weeks after a Selphyl® treatment, you will begin to see dramatic effects, enjoying long-lasting skin regeneration and improvement.
How long does the procedure take?
The entire procedure takes about 30 minutes to perform in your doctor’s office.
How many treatments are needed?
The number of treatments needed depends on each individual patient, the desired outcome, and your doctor’s treatment plan. As a stand-alone therapy, many physicians recommend a series of one to three injection sessions spaced from four to six weeks apart for optimal results.
Is the treatment painful?
Unlike other products that are acidic (low pH), SELPHYL® has close to physiologic pH. There may be some temporary discomfort during the injections, and occasional redness and bruising immediately following the treatment that resolves quickly.
Are there any side effects?
There have been no known side effects reported to date. Some patients may experience some mild irritation, swelling, bruising, itching, discoloration or tenderness at the injection sites. These are temporary conditions and typically resolve within two days.
How long does it last?
The longevity of the results of SELPHYL® treatments vary based on the extent of the procedure, areas treated, and number of sessions.
Can anyone be allergic to SELPHYL®?
There is virtually no risk of allergic reaction and no allergic reactions have been reported to date. The SELPHYL® System is used to rapidly collect and isolate a patient’s own PRP for injection and contains no animal or synthetic products.
