Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatments are incredibly popular, and not just because the “vampire facial” thrust them into the spotlight. PRP is a healing component in your blood that can be isolated and used to provide amazing aesthetic benefits. Minimally invasive PRP injections truly shine when it comes to rejuvenating the skin and treating hair loss.
Now, the next generation of PRP is here. The innovative new Selphyl System coverts PRP to Platelet-Rich Fibrin Matrix (PRFM), providing patients with several unique advantages over a classic PRP treatment.
PRP vs. Selphyl PRFM
Your blood is rich in beneficial platelets that promote healing. The goal of a PRP session is to extract these platelets, separate them, and inject them into the treatment area.
Traditional PRP treatments start with a dermatologist or physician drawing your blood. Then, they may use a variety of methods to separate the platelets from unwanted white and red blood cells. However, some of these cells may remain with the PRP, which can cause an undesirable inflammatory effect when injected.
The Selphyl System completely removes red and white blood cells through an automated centrifuge and a proprietary separation gel. This minimizes the risk of any side effects associated with re-injecting blood cells.
Then, the PRP is converted to PRFM. PRFM has fibrin – a natural component that is involved in the process of clotting blood — which maintains the integrity of the beneficial platelets. That means that you will likely experience better, longer-lasting results!
Selphyl PRFM offers several benefits over traditional PRP, including:
- Longer-lasting aesthetic improvement
- Unsurpassed clinical outcomes
- A much lower risk of inflammation
- A more sustained release of beneficial growth factors in the treatment area
Additionally, Selphyl PRFM involves a very short treatment time of approximately 30 minutes. Results may be visible after one treatment, and sessions can be repeated until you achieve the outcome that you want. Over 150,000 patients have already experienced the benefits of Selphyl PRFM!
Dr. Bruce Katz Named Chief Clinical Investigator for Selphyl
The Director of JUVA Skin & Laser Center, Dr. Bruce Katz, recently accepted an invitation to join Selphyl’s team as the Chief Clinical Investigator for all clinical studies. His intimate knowledge of PRP and PRFM makes him a great candidate for this role.
Dr. Katz has seen first-hand the amazing results that his patients have achieved through PRP and PRFM treatments. This role will create new research opportunities into the applications of Selphyl PRFM. That means Dr. Katz’s patients will be among the first to benefit from these studies!
