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.
After hearing about many famous athletes like Tiger Woods and our very own Datok Lee Chong Wei getting PRP treatment for their injured joints and how the treatment enabled  them to heal faster  and return to their game sooner , I decided to find out more about this mode of treatment and possibly learn how to conduct it.
For the joints, the PRP is basically injected  directly into the joint using a fine hypodermic needle. It's quite a simple procedure and is over in just a few minutes if technique is correct and bearable pain or discomfort.
I attended a full day workshop by a Korean Orthopaedic Surgeon where he demonstrated techniques in injecting the lower back for back muscle spasm, the knee joint for knee Osteoarthritis,  upper shoulder muscles for muscle spasm.
A week later DrMichael, a colleague, who does a lot of PRP therapy for joints, came over to guide and assist me in conducting the injection for our patients.

Loose Weight in 3weeks !

Finally found a quick fix to a long term problem! This method not only can reduce the excess weight fast and permanently, it does this by burning the reserved stubborn fat in the body and not the structural fat which easily returns with a vengeance once a program is over. In summary, this "Enhanced" Weight Loss Program aims to : 1. Loose excess weight esp from stubborn fats 2. Increase and Reset Basal Metabolic Rate to a higher level and by doing the #1 and #2, able to 3. Maintain the weight loss forever! ( don't we all wish for this?) . With all this in mind, I decided to embark on this program myself. It is Day 8 today. This protocol should reduce my weight from 0.5 to 1.0lb per day. I only need to follow a special diet plan and take the medication daily. Total loss expected if all progresses accordingly will be 6 to 9kg (or upto 15lbs). I started with 64.8kg on Day1, went up to 64.9kg on Day2 and have progressively lost between 0.3 to 0.7kg daily since. Today I am at

Vulvalar Whitening

Many Asian women experience a darkening of the inner thigh skin or the perineum skin as they age and especially after pregnancy. This is a very common phenomenon and can be quite unbecoming especially in a swimsuit or bikini. Sometime this darkening is due to the rubbing of inner thigh skin together due to excess fat in the thighs or a fungal infection which causes itchiness and scratching. Our new laser can now treat this area of skin. Each treatment can improve the condition by at least 20%. Because of this I usually recommend 3 sessions with each session 1 month apart. Although I must say that some women have found satisfactory outcome even after just 1 treatment.

My Webinar on Women Urinary Incontinence. For those who are suffering from urinary incontinence and need to understand it better, the webinar tries to explain what it is, why it happens and how can it be treated. As aging occurs, women go through changes in their appearance. Most obviously is in the face. But aside from the face and facial features, our body goes through changes as well in it shape as well as function. From babyhood to girlhood to young lady then a woman and middle age and elderly lady, these changes is affected due to physical changes as well as hormonal changes.                                                                                                                                                                        Some changes are obvious like skin laxity, white hair and weight gain, while others are subtle and barely felt or seen until it begins to affect our routine and lifestyle. One of them is urinary incontinence. So WHAT i
