Guide to Selphyl Facial Fillers

Are you becoming self-conscious about wrinkles, lines and other signs of aging? Injectable fillers could help you achieve a more youthful look. Selphyl facial fillers are among the newest dermal fillers available in the United States and can be especially effective for reducing the appearance of wrinkles and lines, and for rejuvenating the skin. Unlike other injectables made with hyaluronic acid, collagen and other compounds, Selphyl is made with blood platelets extracted from your own blood.

If you want to restore your youthful looks and say goodbye to wrinkle and fine lines, set up a consultation with a cosmetic dermatologist in your area. Your dermatologist can perform a thorough skin analysis and determine whether you would be a good candidate for Selphyl facial fillers and other injectables.

Benefits of Selphyl Facial Fillers

Selphyl facial fillers usually last about 15 months, which is much longer than the average of hyaluronic acid and collagen fillers. Some of the other key benefits of Selphyl facial fillers include:

  • No risk of allergic reactions because the filler is made with the patient’s own blood
  • Eliminates appearance of small wrinkles and fine lines
  • Stimulates the growth of new collagen
  • Can treat nasolabial and glabellar lines
  • May be less expensive than other fillers
  • Does not cause blisters on the face
  • Can be used to correct skin divots and pock marks
  • May be effective for diminishing scars left by acne

Selphyl faical filler treatments are also marketed as the “Vampire Facelift” because the process involves extracting the patient’s own blood. Patients who have blood clotting problems and those who are on blood thinning medication are not good candidates for Selphyl facial filler treatments.

Why Selphyl Facial Fillers Are Different from Other Injectables

Most injectable fillers used for wrinkle correction or skin rejuvenation are made with hyaluronic acid or collagen, compounds that are already found in the body. These compounds can be very effective for smoothing out wrinkles and lines, and for creating a youthful appearance. However, these fillers usually disappear within a few months so the patient needs to undergo touchup treatments in order to maintain results.

Selphyl facial fillrs are made using an innovative blood extraction method, using the patient’s very own red blood cells. Blood platelets are removed from the red blood cells and combined with a fibrin mixture to create a rich compound that can be easily injected into the skin. The compound is injected right into the skin tissues until the wrinkles disappear, and the result is a fuller and smoother appearance of the skin. Selphyl facial fillers are a good match for men and women who only want to smooth out very small lines.
