We’ve looked at the effective pairing of neuro-modulators like Botox  or Dysport with fillers such as Restylane or Juvederm, now let’s check out another great combination of Fraxel Laser and SELPHYL.

You may have heard about Fraxel or Fractionated Laser and its ability to reduce pigment and melasma and soften acne scars and wrinkles. However, when injecting and painting on SELPHYL directly post Fraxel treatment, the improvements to the skin are significantly boosted!

So what is SELPHYL? It has been coined the “Vampire Facelift” because the patient’s blood is taken and spun down to separate the blood cells from the platelet rich plasma. That ‘liquid gold’ plasma that contains healing properties and growth factors enhances the stimulation of your own collagen to thicken skin, improve its quality and even create some very natural, long lasting volume.

(Results vary by individual patient and  results cannot be guaranteed)

The Fraxel Laser, rolls over the skin in two different directions, for a total of 8 eight passes. It’s job is to  lay down microscopic, cone-shaped, laser “wounds” that push their way out of the skin in over a weeks’ time. The healthy tissue surrounding the wounds, sends in collagen to help the healing process which is where the magic begins.  As soon as your laser is done, the SELPHYL is injected into your areas of concern (for example,  crepy skin around the mouth or under the eyes) as well as being painted on the whole face, seeping growth factors into the microscopic sites.

Not only does the SELPHYL enhance your results but it also helps accelerate your healing from the Fraxel .

Expect one week of downtime and definitely no plans on the night of the treatment as the SELPHYL is left on until the next morning. The discomfort of the treatment is managed well with doctor supervised medications and strong numbing cream. You will need to arrange a ride home.

Sound interesting? The “Fraxphyl” is one of the most effective and natural combination treatments available.
