PRP treatment for face (also known as 'Vampire facelift') encourages collagen formation and improves blood supply to tissue, both of which are important factors in anti-aging therapies. Your skin texture will improve as the Platelet Rich Plasma stimulates new skin tissue growth.

PRP Malaysia | What is Platelet Rich Plasma?

Platelets are a naturally occurring component of your own blood and play an important role in wound healing and tissue regeneration. Platelet Rich Plasma [PRP] therapy is the process of isolating platelets from the blood and concentrating these platelets to much higher concentration levels than normal, through the process of centrifugation. The result is Platelet Rich Plasma [PRP].

Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment Benefits

Researchers are trying out PRP injections across a number of applications. Examples of these include:

Hair loss: Doctors have injected PRP into the scalp to promote hair growth and prevent hair loss. According to research from 2014, PRP injections are effective in treating androgenic alopecia, which is also known as male pattern baldness.

Tendon injuries: Tendons are tough, thick bands of tissue that connect muscle to bone. They are usually slow to heal after injury. Doctors have used PRP injections to treat chronic tendon problems, such as tennis elbow, Achilles tendonitis at the ankle, and jumper’s knee, or pain in the patellar tendon in the knee.

Acute injuries: Doctors have used PRP injections to treat acute sports injuries, such as pulled hamstring muscles or knee sprains.

Post-surgical repair: Sometimes doctors use PRP injections after surgery to repair a torn tendon (such as a rotator cuff tendon in the shoulder) or ligaments (such as the anterior cruciate ligament, or ACL).

Osteoarthritis: Doctors have injected PRP into the knees of people with osteoarthritis. A 2015 study found that PRP injections were more effective than hyaluronic acid injections (a traditional therapy) for treating osteoarthritis. However, the trial was a small group of 160 people, so larger trials are needed for this to be conclusive.

How does PRP work?

A small sample of your own blood [approximately 30 - 40 mls], is processed in a highly specialised, state of the art system, specifically designed to extract the Platelet Rich Plasma [PRP].

Just like a regular blood test, your blood is extracted at the inner elbow and then placed into a PRP kit to spin / centrifuge at high speeds to separate the blood into different layers. Floating on the top is the lighter platelet-containing plasma while the heavier red blood cells is at the bottom. Then the plasma on the top is extracted for your PRP injection. PRP is normally injected using medical syringe and in some instances, micro-needling technique is applied.

Platelet Rich Plasma [PRP] contains high levels of tissue growth and regeneration factors (EGF - essential growth factors) which are vital to skin rejuvenation & repair. PRP is increasingly being recognised by specialist clinicians as a useful natural intervention to aid tissue growth and collagen stimulation.

Before you undergo PRP, numbing cream will be applied and doctors might recommend and combine PRP treatment with other skin treatments such as lasers and radio frequency (RF) treatments.

What are the potential side effects of PRP?

Because PRP involves injecting a substance into the skin, there are potential side effects. PRP is autologous, which means it contains substances that come directly from your own body. This reduces the risks for an allergic reaction that can occur from injecting other medications, such as cortisone or hyaluronic acid. However, there are risks from the injection itself, including:
  • infection
  • nerve injuries
  • pain at the injection site
  • tissue damage
You should discuss these potential risks with your doctor, as well as the steps your doctor will take to minimize these risks. Do not choose the cheapest PRP Treatment in Malaysia or simply choose PRP treatment based on price alone. PRP treatments involve injectables and need to be done in a sterile and clean manner including using a new syringe for each patient, by a trained qualified medical doctor.
