PRP Facial Rejuvenation

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) has been used in facial rejuvenation around the world since 2006. The treatment is ideal for individuals looking for gradual but noticeable improvement in skin texture, tone, and color with minimal or no recovery time. This revolutionary natural procedure offers incredible skin rejuvenation. Platelets in your blood contain numerous Platelet Derived Growth Factors (PDGF).

These growth factors stimulate proliferation of fibroblasts and keratinocytes, which produce collagen and keratin. PDGF have a significant role in blood vessel formation, the cellular division of fibroblasts (the most common cells in connective tissue), and in synthesizing collagen and the extracellular matrix, including hyaluronic acid. Collagen production has been attributed to helping correct the visible effects of wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid has been shown to increase skin tone and volume providing a more youthful appearance.

This procedure is not a surgical face lift nor does it create the same effect as a face lift. The procedure helps restore or enhance areas, which require volume. Improvement of skin texture and tone can be noticeable within three weeks and improvement continues for the next 8 months as more collagen and keratin is laid under the skin. The results typically last 2 years or longer. Areas of treatment include cheeks and mid-face, wrinkling around the eyes, smile lines, nasolabial fold, neck and jawline, chest, acne scarring, hands, and more. The process takes between 60-90 minutes, depending on complexity. For the best result, we recommend three to six treatments, 4-6 weeks apart.

What happens during a facial rejuvenation treatment with PRP?

The practitioner will assess the degree of skin aging, perform a simple skin analysis, and recommend a sensible treatment with a reasonable outcome. After your skin is cleansed and prepared, local anesthetic cream is applied and nerve blocks may also be given. Blood is then taken from your arm and processed. For treating the entire face, PRP is injected via a syringe and applied to the skin with a dermaroller. For treating specific areas such as around the eyes and laugh lines, PRP is carefully injected to the target area.

Is the procedure painful?

Numbing cream is applied to the face 45 minutes before the procedure, making the treatment very comfortable. Most patients do not feel much sensation.

How long is the recovery time?

Typically, there is little to no downtime associated with the treatment. Some redness of the treated area may last a day after treatment. Minor bruising may occur, but clears up in about a week and can be concealed with cosmetics.

Normal activity can be resumed immediately, but your face should be protected from the sun.

How long is the treatment?

On the treatment day, the entire visit lasts about 2 hours. The actual procedure requires about 20 minutes.

Is it safe?

PRP treatment is extremely safe. Because PRP is produced from your own blood, there is no risk of an allergic reaction. In addition, PRP contains concentrated amount of white blood cells, your natural defenders against infections. As a result, infection is extremely rare with our PRP treatment.

Are there any contraindications?

Persons with active skin infections, acne, skin disease (SLE, porphyria, allergies), cancer, chemotherapy, severe metabolic and systemic disorders, abnormal platelet function (i.e. blood disorders), and underlying sepsis excludes the use of PRP.

Is PRP therapy covered by insurance?

As PRP Skin Rejuvenation is a cosmetic procedure, it is not covered by health insurance.

How much does PRP therapy cost?

An entire facial rejuvenation treatment including an initial consultation costs RM1300. For smaller areas the treatment cost is less (around the eyes, for example costs RM800). Treatment packages are available with reduced rates.

How many treatments are needed?

Initially, 3 to 6 treatments 4-6 weeks apart are recommended for optimal results. Thereafter, maintenance treatments are recommended every one to two years depending on skin type.

PRP- Dark circles treatment

Dark circles around the eyes, also known as periorbital hyperchromic macules are one of the major responsible features. However research evidence suggests that they are caused by multiple factors that include dermal melanin accumulation, post-inflammatory Dark circles around the eyes, also known as periorbital hyperchromic macules are one of hyperpigmentation secondary to atopic or contact dermatitis, leaky vasculature, periorbital the most common aesthetic concerns.

Despite its prevalence, there is no consensus about the major responsible features. However research evidence suggests that they are caused by multiple factors that include dermal melanin accumulation, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation secondary to atopic or contact dermatitis, leaky vasculature, periorbital
edema, tear trough depression, superficial location of blood vessels, and shadowing due to skin laxity. As a result, a cookie cutter treatment approach render suboptimal results most of the time. Therefore it is important to identify the specific physiological and anatomic problems of each person in order to individualize treatment for best possible outcome. Dr. Zul prescribes individualized dark circles treatment plan after a thorough evaluation.

PRP Acne scars

Face clinic Acne Scar Therapy is one of our signature procedures developed by Dr. Zul. Face Clinic Scar Therapy is a truly bio-friendly approach to reduce the appearance of acne scars.

What is the procedure like?

A small amount of blood is taken from the patient to produce platelet rich plasma(PRP). Upon activation, PRP is injected via syringe and applied to the skin with acne scar with Derma Queen.

How does it work?

prp007

Derma Queen creates microscopic channels that directly inject PRP into the dermislayer of the skin affected by acne scars and start wound healing response. in response, PRP stimulates proliferation of fibroblasts and keratinocytes creating new skin. Derma Queen also breaks up abnormal fibers that contribute to the unevenness of skin. In addition to correcting acne scars, the procedure also enhances the texture and vitality of your skin by creating new blood vessels. Newly created vessels provide vital nutrients to the skin to maintain healthy skin.

Is the treatment painful?

The procedure is simple and convenient with minor discomfort. Numbing cream and freezing shots are used to make the treatment comfortable.

How long is the recovery time?

Typically, there is little to no down time associated with the treatment. Some redness and occasional bruising of the treated area may last a few days after treatment. Make-up can be applied immediately after the treatment.

How many treatments do I need?

Acne scars look better within days following the first treatment and continue improving for following months. Severe acne scarring may need up to 5 to 10 treatments, spaced out by 4 to 6 weeks.

How long is the treatment?

On the treatment day, the entire visit lasts about 2.5 hours. The actual procedure requires about 30 minutes.

PRP Hair Restoration Treatment

prp008

ONE SIMPLE PROCEDURE WITH NO DOWN TIME

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a revolutionary treatment used to regenerate hair growth. PRP is blood that has been concentrated with platelets. These concentrated platelets contain proteins and growth factors, which help increase circulation to the hair follicles, stimulate the follicles to grow, and even thicken the hair shaft. It is believed that the introduction of platelets and white blood cells through Platelet Rich Plasma can actually stimulate the growth of follicles, thereby reversing hair miniaturization seen in androgenetic alopecia and even preventing hair loss.
After a small amount of blood is taken from the patient to produce the PRP, the scalp is cleaned and numbed with a local anesthetic. Calcium-activated PRP is injected via syringe and applied topically with a dermaroller. The dermaroller creates microscopic channels that allow the PRP to penetrate deep into the skin on the scalp where it stimulates the growth of hair follicles and creates new blood vessels.

Safety, Complications, Contraindications to Use of PRP

PRP is immunologically neutral and poses no danger of allergic, hypersensitivity, or foreign-body reactions. A brief period of inflammation at wound sites may be experienced by a patient after application of PRP. Inflammation may be associated with release of platelet-associated factors at the wound site.

Is everyone a good candidate for this procedure?

PRP Hair Treatment is a safe choice for many patients with hair loss. However, patients with active infection on the scalp, history of shingles on the scalp, diabetes, coagulation disease, or on blood thinning and/or immunosuppressive medications are not candidates for PRP. If the hair follicles are entirely lost, the treatment will not work. Patients who have lost their hair follicles require hair transplant surgery.

What is the cost involved?

RM1500 covers a consultation and the PRP treatment. Treatment packages are available with reduced rates.

How many treatments do I need?

Initially, three treatments spaced out by 3 months are recommended for rapid regrowth. For some patients, maintenance treatment may become necessary every year or so.

Is PRP therapy covered by insurance?

As PRP Hair Restoration is a cosmetic procedure, it is not covered by health insurance.

How much science does this procedure have behind?

Although PRP has sufficient theoretical scientific basis to support its use in hair restoration, hair restoration using PRP is still at its infancy. Clinical evidence is still weak. However, many of our patients report excellent results. Considering its excellent safety profile and relatively low cost, PRP hair treatment is a promising treatment option for patients with thinning hair. Researchers have reported that PRP promotes hair growth from follicles by the action of platelet growth factors on hair follicle stem cells. The platelet growth factors induce follicle stem cells to shift from a dormant state to an active state that starts the process of hair production.
