For our patients seeking a natural alternative or compliment to traditional facial fillers SkinRhümMD is pleased to offer The Selphyl System®. This platelet rich plasma facial restores volume and fills in fine lines, creping skin, acne scars and the hollows under the eyes. Dubbed the “Vampire Facelift” by popular media, the Selphyl System® is used by physicians worldwide to seamlessly improve the signs of aging using your body’s own platelet rich plasma for collagen stimulation.
The Selphyl System® or platelet rich plasma facial enables Dr. Patenaude to safely prepare a gel-like matrix utilizing a small amount of the patient’s own blood, hence the vampire facelift nickname. Dr. Patenaude takes the collected blood and then administers it into a patented procedure to separate the red and white blood cells from the platelets and fibrin. Once the blood cells have been removed, a gel concentrate can then be inserted into wrinkles, acne scars and sagging areas by injection. Selphyl’s jelly like substance of fibrin and platelets activates new skin cells in the area to grow rapidly and spread, thus re-volumizing and filling out fine lines, and other hollow areas of the face, hands, neck and décolleté.
Selphyl results will gradually become noticeable approximately 3 weeks after treatment as the area will begin to appear fuller and lines less defined. Multiple Selphyl treatments may be necessary to achieve desired results over the course of a few months. The Selphyl platelet rich plasma facial is safe and there is virtually no risk of allergic reaction as it is your body’s own platelet rich plasma which is being injected for collagen stimulation and volumization.
The Selphyl System® is perfect for patients who are seeking a more natural and gradual approach to anti-aging. Results after the platelet rich plasma facial can last for years with regular maintenance treatments varying for each patient.
