PRP for younger, also stronger joints

PRP has been used in our clinic for skin rejuvenation, post filler healing, acne scar reduction, pigmentation reduction, as natural fillers, hair regrowth and scalp rejuvenation. PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma contain huge amounts of growth factors and small amount of stem cell , so for a long time before it entered the Cosmetic Medicine world, it was used by someOrthopaedic Surgeons  to inject into the knee joints or any joint injuries for new cell regeneration and healing.

Global Face Rejuvenation w 3D Facelift

Allergen Malaysia had a grand dinner at KL Hilton tonite where DrSmith from Canada gave an excellent talk on the new approach to antiaging the face using the new brand of Juvederm fillers called Volbel and Volift. Juvederm has become one of the more I popular fillers in the market since it bought over by Allergan , the company that produces Botox. In combination , DrSmith showed how I can get rid of dynamic lines, static fine lines, increase the light reflection of the skin and  recreate a youthful facial angle. All this is done 1 sitting, lasts for 2 years and treatment is almost painless.

V Shape Face with threads

Another Korean aesthetic surgeon was in town last Sunday for a workshop on using those fine Korean threads to shape the lower face. Combined with Dermotoxins, the effect was predictable and quite nice. I was also very interested in the threads with "cox" or "barbs" which are actually little protrusions along the length of the threads to create a stronger hold into the skin.  Although it causesmore swelling and potentially more possibility of a bruise occurring, the " lift"  effect is much better and shaping the lower face into a more defined "V".
I will definitely be trying out this combined technique as soon as we receive our thread orders. Will put up some photos soon!
