The Selphyl® System (Platelet Rich Plasma)
Only available through qualified healthcare practitioners for the safe and rapid collection of autologous PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma), the SELPHYL® System uses a small amount of the patient’s own blood for facial rejuvenation. The SELPHYL® System kit allows our experienced and professional technicians to safely and quickly prepare a Platelet-Rich Fibrin Matrix (PRFM) during your in-office procedure.
The Selphyl® Process
- Stop by the Virginia Beach Spa & Laser office off of Shore Drive to have a small amount of blood drawn, usually from your arm. Many patients prefer this as a natural alternative to other, chemically produced, injectables.
- We’ll place the tube of your sample into a centrifuge, spinning it to separate the elements and create a supernatant plasma, or platelet suspension – the PRFM.
- When you’re ready, the PRFM can be clinically injected back into you, plumping up your face and stimulating collagen production. The entire procedure takes about 30 minutes.
We typically recommend a series of 1 – 3 injectables spaced out over four weeks, but the number of treatments depends upon your skin and your desired outcome, as does the extent and longevity of the treatment. Consult with our knowledgeable SELPHYL® technicians to determine what kind of results you’d like to see, what areas you’d like treated, and how many sessions they recommend.
