Vampire Facelift

Kelowna Selphyl Treatment

Reverse Signs of Aging Naturally

Non-surgical procedures are quickly gaining popularity as a means of improving facial appearance and can deliver tighter skin, enhanced facial contours and healthier collagen without the need for invasive surgery.

At our Kelowna skin care clinic, we offer Selphyl, an innovative non-surgical rejuvenation procedure proven to correct the effects skin aging and restore vitality to your appearance.

What is Selphyl?

Also known as a ‘vampire facelift’, the selphyl procedure involves withdrawing a patient’s blood, processing it to isolate the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and then reinjecting it to erase any unwanted lines and wrinkles.

What can Selphyl be used to treat?

Blood platelets contain a number of growth factors that can stimulate collagen production, skin renewal, cell regrowth and tissue regeneration which makes selphyl an ideal treatment for:

  • Deep furrows or creases that run from the nose to the mouth
  • Crow’s feet
  • Forehead wrinkles
  • Hollowness under the eyes
  • Hollowness in the cheek area
  • Restoring facial fullness

What does the Selphyl procedure involve?

Selphyl Procedure

Your cosmetic surgeon will collect a small volume of blood from you and through an innovative process, isolate the platelet rich plasma.

The PRP is then reapplied to the treatment area using a series of near painless injections to improve the quality of your skin.

Treatment Time

Selphyl is a relatively quick procedure and takes approximately 30 minutes to complete.

Is It Painful?

While there may be some temporary discomfort during the injections, the Selphyl procedure is tolerated well by most patients.

What Are The Side Effects?

The side-effects associated with Selphyl are often mild and temporary, similar to any other injectable procedure. These include:

  • Temporary skin irritation
  • Bruising
  • Itching
  • Skin discoloration
  • Tenderness
What Results Can I Expect?

The Selphyl treatment works by gradually stimulating your body’s own collagen production.

While you will see immediate results straight away, it may take up to 3 weeks for sustained volume gain.

How Many Treatments Are Needed?

The overall results of our Kelowna Selphyl treatment can last up to 12-18 months.

The number of treatments required depend highly on the individual patient, the desired outcome and the treatment plan.


Risks & Benefits of Selphyl Treatment

Prior to any cosmetic procedure, it is important to fully understand both the risks and benefits associated with the desired treatment.

This will allow you to make a more informed decision and have a better expectation of your aesthetic outcome.
