Many patients ask me about this "blood" treatment. Made popular by Kim Kardashian with her "Vampire Lift" facial several years ago, it took the world by storm and became a very popular method for skin rejuvenation adn improvemet.
Over the years I have conducted many PRP treatments.
So what is PRP therapy ?
PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma is a treatment that uses the plasma derived from a person's own blood (autologus) to release growth factors, which are cells that act as messengers to initiate skin cell regeneration.
A small amount of blood is taken and deposited into a special PRP kit. A good kit , like the Regen kit (RegenACR) is able to ensure a big quantity of growth factor(GF) cells in the plasma which will then translate to better effect on the skin.
What is PRP good for?
PRP if used to treat the skin each month, has been shown to give skin homogenecity due to regeneration of new skin. Fine lines are reduced, skin color is lightened and brightened. Overall skin tone also improves and tightening occurs.
PRP is best done regularly once a month. After 3 months the results is most significant.
PRP can also be used for joint problems like in the knees and the shoulder joint.
I've also used PRP for hair regrowth with amazing results and some of my male patients had hair regrowth in just 2 months to a full head of hair !
PRP can be combined with Hyaluronic Acid (HA) for a synergistic effect of hydrating the skin as well.
There are many PRP treatmetns being offered nowadays with a price range of a few hundred RM to thousands of RM. Patients need to know that the difference is in the type of kit used which enables the quantity of GF cells. The better kit like Regenkit will be able to derive the highest quantity of GFs as compared to just using a plain CAT tube. It is also important to bear in mind the "closed" system required as opposed to "open" system which carries risk of contamination of blood and transmission of infection.
Recently I was introduced to the FDP-2B concept . Also another type of PRP the blood is processed in the lab instead of by clinic centrifugation and the plasma is freeze dried to enable GF extract of up to 2 Billion cells! This can give amazing outcomes for patient, esp those with problematic skin or joint problems.
Now, I prefer to offer the freeze dried PRP due to the much higher quantity of cells with just 1 session, and a very significant improvment is seen.
Also with the FDP-2B , I only have to extract the blood once and I get 5 vials containing 2 Billion GFs inside which can be used throughout the year. Just call the lab and walah! it's there ready for injection wether to the hair or face or joints, OR all 3!
