Growth Factors for Hair

For those whose scalp hair is thinning , one of the treatment modalities is to infuse the scalp area with hair-specific micronutrients or hair vitamins. Even better if the micronutrients can be given along with growth factors. The best type of growth factors of course are human growth factors or hGF as the scalp skin will receive it well and the hair follicles will recognize the cells. In or to get hGF, it has been popular to use PRP which is acquired from the patient's own blood. But sometimes, it is difficult to get enough PRP fr patient due to difficult intravenous access, or patient just do not want to have a venepuncture done. So another source of hGF is now available . Acquired fr the foreskin of circumcised babies, this hGF is formulated for hair regrow th, skin Rejuvrnation and vaginal Rejuvrnation. 
I tried it out for one of our staff . This is how it is done:
1. The Dermastamp is prepared. Dermastamp is a device that has fine needles of different lengths on it's surface which then used to "stamp" the scalp skin. For the scalp skin, the 0.8mm needles is used. 
2. Photo of top of head is taken to record  the condition before treatment

3. The affected part of the scalp is tackled first. The hair is carefully separated to expose as much skin as possible
4. The stamping is begun along the hairline and on the skin where the hair is separated. A 50% overlap is done. 
5. The hGF solution is then applied a little bit at a time immediately into the "stamped" area. A firm rubbing or massaging of the area is done immediately after to ensure absorption and no dripping of excess fluid. 
The protocol is weekly session for 10weeks. 
There is a lot of science behind growth factor stimulation for skin and with this available there is less pain and a lot more convenience for the patient.

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 …

Loose Weight in 3weeks !

Finally found a quick fix to a long term problem!

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…
