the latest in skin rejuvenation, SELPHYL

Because Nothing Is More Natural Than You…

The PRFM that is prepared with SELPHYL® 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 re-wind it naturally with the SELPHYL® System.

Natural Effects…

As soon as SELPHYL® prepared PRFM is administered, growth factors are released into the skin through a sustained mechanism.

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® treats a root cause of skin aging by triggering the production of new cells and collagen. Pronounced effects occur approximately three weeks after the administration of SELPHYL®. Patients have enjoyed visible improvement and regeneration.

Fast and Easy…

SELPHYL® is administered by Dr.Vafa in a procedure that takes approximately 20 minutes. Desired results may be achieved in just one visit. However, only Dr.Vafa will determine the best treatment approach. Together, you and Dr.Vafa may decide if SELPHYL® prepared PRFM is right for you, especially if you desire a natural solution to looking younger!

frequently asked questions*

What is SELPHYL®?

The SELPHYL® System is an autologous platelet and fibrin processing system, which uses your own blood to prepare a product enabling the administration of your concentrated platelets and tissue building elements (Platelet-Rich Fibrin Matrix or PRFM).

Where is it applied?

SELPHYL® is designed to enable physicians to collect and process your own natural tissue building elements for administration. SELPHYL® prepared PRFM can be applied just below the surface of your skin.

Is the SELPHYL® System safe?

Used on thousands of patients worldwide, SELPHYL® has been shown to be both safe and effective. SELPHYL® contains only autologous components and no severe adverse reactions have been reported (nodules, bumps or granulomas).

How is treatment with SELPHYL® performed?

SELPHYL® yields a natural biologically-active PRFM, loaded with viable platelets that can be applied in a simple, safe, quick, and minimally invasive outpatient procedure. Application typically takes place in the physician’s office. Dr.Vafa can use a variety of pain management techniques during treatment to ensure your comfort throughout the process.

Are there any side effects?

Since SELPHYL® uses your own blood and does not contain any animal or synthetic components, there is virtually no risk of an allergic reaction and there have been no reported allergic reactions to date. Consequently, skin allergy testing is unnecessary prior to treatment. However, if you have a history of allergies please inform Dr.Vafa. There have been no known serious side effects reported in actual usage. However, you may experience some common reactions, such as mild irritation, edema, bruising, swelling, itching, discoloration or tenderness at the injection site. These temporary conditions typically resolve themselves within one to two days.

What result can I expect?

The treatment will provide a gradual increase in volume by helping to stimulate your bodys own collagen production. Following your treatment, you will see immediate results. Once the initial swelling goes down, it may take up to 3 weeks to see sustained volume gain.*

Will my skin become noticeably hard to the touch?

As this is a natural process using your own biology, there are no known such associated risks.

Does SELPHYL® produce permanent results?

Although not permanent, SELPHYL® PRFM offers natural effects.*

Do I need more than one treatment?

Desired results may be achieved in just one visit, but only Dr.Vafa can determine the best treatment approach.*
