What is Selphyl?
Selphyl is a patented system used for the safe and rapid preparation of Platelet Rich Fibrin Matrix (PRFM), a proven technology that Oculoplastic surgeon Dr. Amiya Prasad uses to correct the effects and signs of skin aging. The PRFM that is prepared with SELPHYL® PRFM is autologous, meaning it uses your natural biology.
Platelets are known to contain factors which your body uses to trigger cell migration and proliferation to rejuvenate and increase skin volume. You can’t turn back the clock, but you can rewind it naturally with the SELPHYL® System.
The Selphyl PRFM Treatment Procedure
Dr. Amiya Prasad collects a small sample of blood from the patient and through the patented process, separates and concentrates the patient’s own platelets and fibrin into a matrix. The resulting PRFM can be applied to a treatment area of the face or body to stimulate cell proliferation which promotes the increase of volume and rejuvenation of the skin through a process of targeted tissue regeneration
In vitro studies have shown that platelet growth factors are released for up to 7 days, supporting collagen production and dermal matrix reconstruction. It is thought that Selphyl Plasma treats a root cause of skin aging by triggering the production of new cells and collagen. Pronounced effects occur approximately three weeks after the initial administration of Selphyl Plasma. Patients have enjoyed visible improvement and regeneration with long lasting effects.
The administration of Selphyl Plasma takes approximately 20 minutes. Desired results may be achieved in just one visit. Keep in mind that only Dr. Prasad will determine the best treatment approach for your specific case. Together, you and Dr. Prasad may decide if Selphyl Plasma prepared PRFM is right for you, especially if you desire a natural solution to looking younger!
