Does Selphyl Work?

Can Injecting Your Blood Into Your Face Make You Look Younger?

A new procedure called the Selphyl System (self-fill, get it?) is purporting to "rejuvenate" patients (like the woman at right) by drawing blood, then using a centrifuge to separate the components out. Then, the platelets and fibrin are injected back into the face.

Supposedly, your body reacts to the injections by producing a bunch of collagen, thereby making your face appear fuller over time. Results take three weeks to develop and last for up to 18 months, and the procedure costs about $1,100. Not for me, but I can see it creating a lot of interest. What do you think?

This procedure is a total rip off! Absolutely does not work. Had it done 5 weeks ago and the only thing I got for my money was a lot of bruises with some swelling for about a week. :-( Don't waste your money.

Selphyl does not work, it is a joke. I went to a popular, licensed plastic surgeon who recommended the Selphyl, or the vampire face lift. The proceedure is supossed to not have any down time - ha! I had two black eyes with the skin under my eyes being swollen and blood red. I looked like I had been beaten. .I was still hopeful it would work, I had the large pack, or dose, whatever. But Selphyl does not work! I have had no results at all and the skin under my eyes was so stretched out from the swelling and brusing that it is now sagging. I am over 8 weeks in - they say by 8 weeks you will have results...No results. Other injectables have worked for me in the past. I am only 49 so there is no reason I would be an unusual case. Do not waste your money on this product.

Ew. I'm not against plastic surgery or Botox or anything, but this just sounds so gross and creepy to me.

LOL Tammy! I was thinking the same thing! Maybe laughing is not the right thing for me to do since she had around 650 supposed victims, but I couldn't help but think it as I was reading this.

All the before/afters look the same to me, honestly. The biggest difference I can see is maybe in the lips. Doesn't seem worth $1,100.
