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 62…

Laser Vagina Rejuvenation

Our V2LR laser handpiece is finally here. Had a revision session with Prof Zerbinatti in the clinic on 3rd Jan. Imagine, for those of us who wish to "rejuvenate" ourselves can do so now with ease and painlessly. Just make an appointment with the clinic, come in 30min earlier so a topical numbing cream can be applied, and have the procedure conducted and completed in 1/2 hr,tops. What will you get ? Well, internally the lasering will "puff"up the mucosa of the vaginal wall by collagen remodeling, as well as improve sensations. Externally the procedure can lighten the skin color, increase sensitivity as well tighten surrounding area. ALl these in just 3 sessions! Prof Zerbinatti claims that in his clinic this is currently the most popular procedure among women in their 30s and 40s.


I am very excited about this procedure. I know a lot of women out there do not have any problems, and therefore do not require any surgical LVR but would like to just improve. Like everyhti…

Hydrafacial vs Silkpeel

Our old but very reliable microdermabrasion Diamond crystal peeling machine broke down after many years of high performance. It was one of our highest performing equipment and it had served us well. My dear Diamond MDA I shall miss you. And although I would like to continue our liaison , it does not see possible anymore as there is no longer a distributor in Malaysia. So, I have been going round researching and looking for a new MDA unit to replace our old one. Some here comes the Silk Peel and Hydra Facial.
Silk Peel conducts both dry microdermabrasion using a diamond tipped hand piece which abates and abrade the upper layers of skin. If desired, a "wet microdermabrasion" can also be conducted using the diamond tip hand piece but while the abrasion is going on, solutions containing micronutrients and hydrating agents are infused alongside. This gives for a more effective treatment as delivery is more efficient as products are more penetrate.
Now, the Hydra Facial?
Well, am …
