What is Selphyl?
Selphyl is a patented injectable procedure that uses your own body’s platelets and fibrin from your blood to regenerate tissue by stimulating collagen. This is an ideal treatment for the person seeking the most natural way to significantly improve their skin texture and tone to achieve smoother, healthier-looking skin. Selphyl is not a drug and contains no animal or synthetic products. There is virtually no risk of allergic reaction.
What Areas Can Be Treated with Selphyl?
PRFM is most commonly used for areas such as tear troughs, under eye dark circles, crow’s feet, acne scars, and crepey skin on the chest, even cleavage wrinkles in the décolleté. It can also be used in other grooves or folds such as the nasolabial lines and necklace lines on the neck.
How Is Selphyl Done?
Selphyl should be done in a medical skin clinic. Our nurse will take only a small amount of your blood and centrifuge it for six minutes. The platelets and fibrin, which are now separated from the red cells and white cells, will form the Platelet Rich Fibrin Matrix. Your blood is not stored but used right away. Dr. Wong will then immediately inject the PRFM (now a straw coloured liquid) into the desired area. The procedure takes about half an hour. Your body will then do the rest of the work to naturally improve your skin texture and volume.
How Does Selphyl (PRFM) Work?
Platelets and fibrin will stimulate your own growth factors to be released which trigger the production of new cells and collagen. Collagen is the key structural component in the skin that contributes to your skin thickness and texture. Collagen stimulation typically starts two to six weeks after the treatment and may continue for up to 12 weeks to achieve long lasting results.
