How many treatments are required?

Are there any side effects?
There have been no known side effects reported to date. Some patients may experience some mild irritation, swelling, bruising, itching, discoloration or tenderness at the injection sites. These are temporary conditions and typically resolve within two days.
How long does it last?
The longevity of the results of SELPHYL® treatments vary based on the extent of the procedure, areas treated, and number of sessions.
Can anyone be allergic to SELPHYL®?
There is virtually no risk of allergic reaction and no allergic reactions have been reported to date. The SELPHYL® System is used to rapidly collect and isolate a patient's own PRP for injection and contains no animal or synthetic products.
