The platelets found in human blood are rich in healing properties. SELPHYL® is an injectable treatment that provides cosmetic physicians a means to harness this healing capacity of a platelet-rich fibrin matrix (PRFM) to initiate rejuvenation in the skin. This breakthrough treatment method is fast becoming a non-invasive treatment of choice for patients seeking ways to activate and maintain the functions of youthful skin non-invasively.
The SELPHYL® treatment, a.k.a. the vampire facial, involves the extraction of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) from your own blood. Calcium chloride is then added to the PRP in order to create a fibrin matrix, which serves as a three dimensional scaffold to maintain the platelets at the site of injection. This thickened concentration acts as a filler treatment to restore volume to the cheeks, tear troughs, lip wrinkles and textural scars. Because the filler substance is composed from your own blood, there is very little chance of an allergic reaction. Furthermore, the SELPHYL® treatment is very fluid and therefore does not pose any risk of feeling unnatural beneath the skin. Over a period of weeks, the treated skin becomes smoother and firmer as new collagen is synthesized. Regular treatments are required to realize continued improvement.
