At Nova Dermatology we are proud to offer the revolutionary Selphyl PRFM system. Similar to PRP or platelet rich plasma technology, the Selphyl system offers patients high level cosmetic skin and cell rejuvenation. At Nova, we offer Selphyl in place of traditional PRP treatments, as they are not only more effective and safer, but also eliminates common issues with PRP such as the possibility of human error and all possibility of contamination. The Selphyl system is often referred to as the next generation of PRP, and can help patients with a wide variety of cosmetic and general tissue regeneration issues.
What is Selphyl PRFM?
The Selphyl PRFM system allows us to safely and securely prepare your PRP
sample, faster and more efficiently than using any other procedure. During the conventional PRP process, there are a lot of points at which human interaction, and constantly moving samples around can often lead to contamination, but with Selphyl’s closed system, we can ensure you have the highest grade PRP sample, without any contamination.
Selphyl creates a specially designed Platelet rich Fibrin Matrix from your normal blood sample. By adding a specified amount of calcium chloride, we are able to initiate the conversion of fibrinogen to fibrin, as part of the clotting mechanism. This allows us to create stronger blood platelets that will last and prove far more effective upon injection – no matter if its for your hair, face, or even injury rehabilitation!
Healing Power of Blood
Its understood that the human body functions as one of the most efficient machines on the planet, and has the ability to restore and heal itself over time from injury or cellular damage in many ways. During the healing process, platelets and other growth factors migrate to the injured area. These platelets and other components are vital to the healing process, thereby, when concentrating these platelets, your doctor can drastically improve the patient’s potential to heal and rejuvenate certain tissue and cells. The Selphyl system provides a calcium chloride compound to traditional PRP, which then creates the Platelet rich Fibrin Matrix or PRFM. The Fibrin matrix will then localize platelets to the injection site and helps to release the vital growth factors, while allowing for the migration of stem cells and regenerative spiraling. In practice this can allow patients a number of benefits including:`
- Hair Restoration
- Skin Rejuvenation
- Anti-Aging Benefits
- Scar Reduction
- Blemish Reduction
PRP Versus PRFM?
PRP refers to platelet rich plasma therapy, a procedure in which the patient’s own natural blood platelets are used to restore and rejuvenate the patient’s skin and other cells. As we mentioned, Selphyl is a revolutionary new take on the traditional PRP system, and offers patients a number of amazing benefits when compared to traditional PRP. Some of the most notable include:
- Higher Quality Platelets
- Higher Concentration of Platelets
- Higher Production of Growth Factors
- Zero chance of red & white blood cell contamination.
- Eliminates possibility of human error.
- Safer and more effective.
- Much faster and more efficient.
