PRP TREATMENT

PRP, also known as the Vampire Facelift is an effective and natural procedure used to promote new collagen and tissue regeneration for treating fine lines, deep wrinkles, acne scarring, and loss of volume. PRP, by definition refers to platelets in plasma is produced through centrifugation of the patient's blood. This results in a self-made concentration of human platelets in a small volume of plasma. The therapy will revitilize the skin and give it a more radiant appearance. At Newdermamed we use the Selphyl® PRFM as the next generation of PRP.

HOW IS SEPHYL PRFM DIFFERENT?

The Sephyl® system can convert PRP to PRFM with the addition of a precise amount of calcium chloride, which initiates the conversion of fibrinogen to fibrin, as part of the clotting cascade. The fibrin matrix serves as a three dimensional scaffold to maintain the platelets at the site of injection. The scaffold also serves to protect the platelets so their release of growth factors can be sustained over a long period of time. 

WHAT IS PRP FOR?

Fine Lines and Skin Quality – PRP mesotherapy injections promote the process of natural tissue regeneration which naturally slows down as we age. PRP improves skin quality and smoothes fine lines.

Dark Circles – The eye area has very delicate skin that can appear bluish due to microcirculation. PRP mesotherapy injections stimulate circulation around the eye and as a result the under eye darkness will improve.

Deep Wrinkles – PRP can be combined with HA dermal fillers to restore youthful proportions to the volumes of the face. Areas include nasolabial folds, cheeks and jaws, periorbital area, crow’s feet, upper lip, nose and forehead.

Scars - PRP mesotherapy injections can greatly improve scars, acne scars, and stretch marks.

Hair Loss – PRP is a natural therapy that uses mesotherapy injections localized in the scalp to slow down hair loss and to stimulate hair growth. By exploiting regenerative potential contained in the platelets, this induces regeneration of the hair bulb environment, while increasing blood supply to the hair follicle. As a result, the hair becomes more enriched and stronger, in return enhancing the actual colour and brightness of the hair without any side effects.

THE POWER OF BLOOD

As part of the body's natural ability to heal itself, platelets and other components in the human blood move to a site of injury. Platelets which are known to release a variety of factors that respond to tissue injury, where they go on to initialize and promote the healing process. Physicans have the potential to enhance the body's natural healing process by focusing on concentrating the platelets at the site of injury. 

PLATELETS RELEASE OF GROWTH FACTOR

Growth factors are released through the formation of a three-dimensional cross-linked fibrin matrix as soon as Selphyl prepared PRFRM is adminstered. This process is essential to the platelet plug as it serves as a binding site for both growing factors and platelets allowing their sustained release. This such scaffolding (fibrin matrix) is what localized the growth factors in return, increasing their concentration at the area of interest and guiding tissue regeneration. Supporting studies have demonstrated and shown that platelet growth factors are released for up to seven days, supporting collagen production and increased vascularization, ultimately resulting in the overall improvement of the skin.    

HOW PRP WORKS

A nurse or physician will extract a very small amount of venous blood and place it into the PRP system which will produce the optimal platelet concentration by isolating the red cells from a platelet concentrate embedded in its own plasma.

WHAT IS PLATELET RICH PLASMA?

Blood is made up of plasma, red cells, white cells and platelets. Platelet Rich Plasma is blood with an increased concentration of platelets. Platelets are essential in hard and soft tissue repair mechanisms. They provide essential growth factors that stimulate collagen synthesis, skin renewal, cell growth, and tissue regeneration. Plasma contains nutrients, vitamins, hormones electrolytes and proteins that are critical for cell survival. Research studies have shown that the increased concentration of growth factors in PRP speed up the healing process in injured patients and have an anti-aging effect when used on the skin. In addition, studies have shown that PRP is an innovative solution for hair loss, acne scars and stretch marks.

WHAT IS SELPHYL PLATELET-RICH FIBRIN MATRIX (PRFM)?

The Sephyl system can be considered the next generation of PRP and it is designed for the rapid and safe preparation of Platelet-Rich Fibrin Matrix taken from a small sample of blood from the patient. Numerous PRP systems require operator skill, which vary in the results they offer along with the potential risk of red and white blood cell contamination. By using the Sephyl system, it aims to remove virtually all contaminating blood cells and is independent of operator techniques. PRP is then converted to PRFM through a controlled process, producing a scaffold that aims to preserve and protect platelets. 

BENEFITS OF PRP

·       Safe and natural technique: no risk of allergy or rejection

·       Stimulate the growth of new healthy tissue: new collagen, new fatty tissue and new blood vessels. 

·       Improved volume: when combined with HA fillers, the PRP can lift and create a beautiful shape.

·       Reduction of fine lines, dark circles, wrinkles, and scars.

·       Long-lasting results: skin will continue to improve for 2-3 months after treatment.

·       Visible improvement to skin tone and texture after just one session: skin will become       smoothe, hydrated and luminous.


The results of PRP on its own are very rejuvenating, but combining PRP with HA dermal fillers or laser treatments can be synergistic and optimize results.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED AND HOW LONG DOES THE PROCEDURE TAKE?

While it may be possible to achieve your desired results after just one treatment, additional treatments are generally recommended. Your doctor will determine the best approach for you individually. The entire procedure will take about an hour to perform. 

ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS? 

There have been no reported cases of side effects to date assosciated with Selpyl. As with any injectable procedure, some clients may often experience some mild and temporary irritation, swelling, brusing, itching, discoloration or tenderness at the injection site but will fade to subside. 

CAN ANYONE BE ALLERGIC TO SELPHYL? 

The Selphyl PRFRM system is specially designed to be used to rapidly collect and isolate a patient's own PRFM for injection and contains no traces of animal or synthectic products making it virtually risk- free from an allergic reaction.
