What about the filler Selphyl. Is it the best filler?
I’m not recommending Selphyl at this time. There are two issues with any new filler: safety and how well does it work? I think it’s pretty clear that Selphyl is safe as long as blood samples between patients aren’t mixed up. If your sample is mixed in the room you are in, you can be sure that the injection is coming from your blood.
It’s way less clear how well it works and how long it lasts because there is almost no published data on skin. There is a lot of marketing and I would say beware of marketing. It’s been used in the orthopedic world with variable success for a variety of conditions. In the skin world, the 50 million dollar question is – is it better than Sculptra? It’s very expensive and so far I would say don’t waste your money until it’s proven to work well and last at least a year. Dr I
