Selphyl PRFM (Platelet-rich Fibrin Matrix) System

Selphyl PRFM system harnesses the patient’s own biology and platelets to naturally fill skin depressions, acne scars, wrinkles and folds – safely and effectively.  It involves an autologous platelet and fibrin processing system, which uses the patient’s own blood to prepare a product enabling the administration of the patient’s concentrated platelets and tissue building elements (PRFM).  The PRFM can be applied to face or body to stimulate cell proliferation which promotes the increase of volume and rejuvenation of the skin through a process of targeted tissue re-genearation.

Gradual volume increase will start to be seen approximately 3 weeks after injection, and several injection sessions will be required to before seeing prominent results.  Each session, from collection of blood to the injection procedure, takes only 20 to 30 minutes.

Pre/Post treatment:

  • Topical anesthetic can be applied prior to treatment to minimize discomfort during treatment
  • Contraindications: patients who is taking aspirin or any blood thinning medication
  • Initial volume may settle within the next few days after injection, whereas gradual volume build up may be seen in about 3 to 4 weeks time.
  • Using of own PRFM hence chances of allergic reaction is minimal.   Common reactions after treatment such as mild bruising, swelling and itching at the injection site will be temporary and typically resolves themselves in a day or two.
  • Depending on individual condition, may need a few treatments to obtain desire results.
