What is the Selphyl Hair Restoration Treatment?
Similar to the conventional PRP or platelet rich plasma hair restoration system, the Selphyl hair restoration system uses the power of PRP or PRFM, in order to increase hair growth and hair density. PRP comes from the patient’s own blood. It is a concentrated form of the essential nutrients and growth factors needed to stimulate inactive hair follicles into an active growth phase. The Selphyl system is engineered to create an even more potent form of PRP known as the Protein-rich Fibrin Matrix (PRFP). This ultra-pure form of PRP provides the necessary scaffold to protect the platelets, allowing them to release their essential growth factors for a longer period of time. This means more hair growth for you than standard PRP preparations. Selphyl PRFM has been used safely and effectively in over 150,000 patients.
How is the Treatment Performed?
To begin with, the Selphyl hair restoration system works similar to any other PRP hair restoration. A small amount of blood is collected from the patient themselves. The blood is then prepared with the proprietary Selphyl system to create the PRP component which naturally contains a large amount of growth factors. The prepared solution, now involving the PRFM solution can then be injected into the patient’s scalp in areas that are experiencing hair loss or thinning.
Are Multiple Treatments Needed?
The fact is the matter is that typically, when an individual is looking to improve the strength and the quality of their hair. According to Dr. Swift, the top plastic surgeon Midtown Manhattan has to offer, typical treatment consists of an initial series of three-monthly treatments, followed by maintenance treatments approximately every 3 to 6 months.
How Does PRP Treatment Hurt?
In order to generate the PRP or PRFM Selphyl hair restoration, a common blood draw is necessary. This involves a small needle-prick, that to some patients might be considered painful. We are able to minimize the discomfort involved with administering the PRFM back to the patient by using topical numbing, local anesthesia, and distraction techniques. The fact of the matter is that Dr. Richard Swift, the top plastic surgeon Midtown Manhattan has to offer, strives and tries his best to ensure patients have the most comfortable, most pain-free experience possible.
