Pender Medi Spa and Physician Skincare Centre are pleased to be one of the first qualified healthcare practitioners to offer their clients SELPHYL® – a major advancement in non-surgical skin enhancement and facial rejuvenation.

Vancouver, BC, Canada (July 11th, 2013) – SELPHYL® is a revolutionary non-surgical system that channels our bodies own regenerative and reparative abilities to improve skin texture and thickness and restore a more youthful appearance. SELPHYL® is a Platelet Rich Fibrin Matrix System (PRFM) that harnesses the rejuvenative power of platelets.

Platelets are colourless disk-shaped cytoplasmic bodies in blood plasma that play a critical role in healing. Platelets and other blood components quickly migrate to any injury site on our bodies, where they release a variety of factors that aid in clotting and initiate and promote tissue recovery.

SELPHYL® practitioners take a small sample of your own blood, from which they quickly isolate platelet rich plasma, or PRP. PRP contains high concentrations of tissue growth factors, which stimulate the production of new cells and collagen. They then add a precise amount of calcium chloride, which transforms your PRP into PFRM, a gel-like matrix.

This matrix is then injected just under the skin into those areas requiring correction or improvement. The entire process takes only about 30 minutes, and requires nothing more than a topical numbing cream. Because the solution is made from your own blood and contains no impurities or synthetic products, there is no risk of an allergic reaction. Some patients may experience slight temporary swelling or occasional bruising around the injection sites.

You will enjoy progressive results over the next six to eight weeks as the tissue growth factors from the PRP go to work promoting new cell growth and collagen formation. As SEPHYL® is not a “product” like dermal fillers, and never lumps or migrates, the results are natural looking, consistent and predictable – an increase in skin fullness, smoother lines, and revitalized, younger-looking skin.

SELPHYL® can be used alone or in combination with other treatments such as Botox, laser treatments and dermal fillers to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and crepey skin; uneven skin texture; under eye hollows and acne and other scars.

Some patients will see the desired results in only one treatment, but a series of three treatments spaced four weeks apart generally provides optimal results. SELPHYL®’s results are long lasting, and maintenance treatment should not be required for a year and a half to two years.

SELPHYL® is approved by Health Canada, and only available through qualified health care practitioners such as Pender Medi Spa and the Physician Skincare Centre.
