Platelet Rich Plasma
Selphyl® Platelet Rich Fibrin Matrix is a natural cosmetic medical procedure that improves facial lines and smoothes wrinkles. Also commonly called Plasma Treatments, Selphyl® utilizes platelets extracted from your own blood and takes only about 30 minutes to perform. This FDA approved process helps to regenerate targeted cells and correct early signs of aging like crow’s feet, loss of facial volume, and sunken areas under the eyes. When combined with dermal fillers such as Restylane®, this treatment is often referred to as the Vampire Facelift®.
In a 30 minute Selphyl® treatment, Dr. Herman will draw a small amount of blood from your arm. Your blood is then placed in a centrifuge to separate out the platelets from your blood. These platelets contain an array of proteins, enzymes, and hormones that stimulate tissue growth. The end product is what is known as a platelet rich fibrin matrix (the medical term for the golden-hued platelets that Selphyl® extracts). The platelet rich fibrin matrix is then injected into the dermis layer of your skin to stimulate new collagen production.
Selphyl® can also be combined with other procedures that Dr. Herman performs such as facial fat grafting procedures and eyelid surgery.
