The Selphyl system enables rapid and safe preparation of PRFM or Platelet-rich Fibrin Matrix using a blood sample from the individual. The majority of these systems require a skilled operator for effective results. The procedure removes nearly all of the contaminating cells. A controlled process is used to convert PRP into PRFM. This creates the scaffold enabling the preservation and protection of the platelets. Selphyl PRFM is the latest generation for PRP regarding hair regrowth.
Platelet-rich plasma or PRP therapy for hair regrowth is a three-part medical treatment. The blood of the patient is drawn and processed so it can be injected into the scalp. This triggers the natural growth of the hair by increasing the blood flow to the follicle and enlarging the thickness of the shaft. In some cases, this treatment is combined with medications or other procedures for hair loss. The PRP treatment process generally requires multiple treatments spaced apart by a few weeks. Maintenance treatments may be necessary every few months.
The first step is when the patient’s blood is drawn. The blood is then placed in a centrifuge and spun rapidly. This separates the different densities of the fluids. The second step is separating the blood into three different layers after it has spun for ten minutes. These are the red blood cells, platelet-rich plasma and platelet-poor plasma. The third step is when the PRP is drawn into the syringe and injected into the areas requiring an increase in hair growth.
