PRP & PRFM Facials and Injections in Beverly Hills: What You Need to Know

The secret to eternal youth has been inside you all along! Using the patented Selphyl® PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) system, Dr. Anita is able to create a Platelet-rich Fibrin Matrix (PRFM) from a small sample of your blood. This powerful natural serum promotes rejuvenation and naturally enhances the body’s own healing processes and collagen production, resulting in a beautiful, radiant glow.

The word ‘vampire’ has been used when describing PRP or PRFM facials, and this is due to a popularized celebrity visual where PRP was applied after microneedling. The bloody appearance was due to the microneedling, and not the PRP or PRFM! The PRP/PRFM does not look bloody- it is a clear yellow serum.

PRP/ PRFM are commonly used topically and/or as injections. When used topically, it is applied after resurfacing the skin with a laser, radiofrequency treatment, or microneedling so that there are tiny channels via which it can be absorbed. When used as injections, common areas are dark undereye circles, nasolabial folds, and areas of hair thinning. The treatment is an effective and natural way to improve the appearance of skin texture, skin tone, and dark circles, as well as promoting an overall more youthful appearance.

Treatment Overview

During the PRP/ PRFM treatment, typically 1-2 small vials of blood will be taken (and more if used for hair thinning). Using the Selphyl system, the blood components are separated and PRP is extracted. This is then converted to PRFM, and applied topically as well as injected beneath the skin using a cannula or needle. This helps to stimulate cell growth and turnover, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improve skin surface texture, and promote volume.

Why is Selphyl PRFM Right for You?

What is Selphyl PRFM?

About Selphyl Platelet-rich Fibrin Matrix (PRFM)

The Selphyl System is designed for the safe and rapid preparation of Platelet-rich Fibrin Matrix (PRFM) from a small sample of blood taken at the office. Many PRP systems have varying results and can have contamination of the PRP with red and white blood cells. Selphyl removes virtually all contaminating cells, and the PRP is converted to PRFM through a controlled process, creating a scaffold that serves to bind the platelets and allow for a sustained release of growth factors, migration of stem cells, and serve as a reservoir for healing. Think of Selphyl PRFM as the next generation PRP.

Why Choose Selphyl PRFM?

The Power of Platelets

Platelets are a component of blood, and they are known to migrate to a site of injury, creating a platelet “plug”, and releasing a variety of growth factors that respond to tissue injury, where they initiate and promote healing. By concentrating platelets at the site of injury, physicians have the potential to enhance the body’s natural capacity for healing, including collagen production and overall skin improvements.

What Can You Expect?

What to Expect

The Selphyl PRFM process is simple and the entire procedure takes approximately 30 minutes. While it may be possible to achieve your desired results after just one treatment, additional treatments are generally recommended.
