PRP treatment Malaysia

PRP treatment for face (also known as 'Vampire facelift' or 'Vampire Facial') encourages collagen formation and improves blood supply to tissue, both of which are important factors in anti-aging therapies. Your skin texture will improve as the Platelet Rich Plasma stimulates new skin tissue growth.

PRP Malaysia | What is Platelet Rich Plasma?

Platelets are a naturally occurring component of your own blood and play an important role in wound healing and tissue regeneration. Platelet Rich Plasma [PRP] therapy is the process of isolating platelets from the blood and concentrating these platelets to much higher concentration levels than normal, through the process of centrifugation. The result is Platelet Rich Plasma [PRP].

Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment Benefits

Researchers are trying out PRP injections across a number of applications. Examples of these include:

Hair loss: Doctors have injected PRP into the scalp to promote hair growth and prevent hair loss. According to research from 2014, PRP injections are effective in treating androgenic alopecia, which is also known as male pattern baldness.

Tendon injuries: Tendons are tough, thick bands of tissue that connect muscle to bone. They are usually slow to heal after injury. Doctors have used PRP injections to treat chronic tendon problems, such as tennis elbow, Achilles tendonitis at the ankle, and jumper’s knee, or pain in the patellar tendon in the knee.

Acute injuries: Doctors have used PRP injections to treat acute sports injuries, such as pulled hamstring muscles or knee sprains.

Post-surgical repair: Sometimes doctors use PRP injections after surgery to repair a torn tendon (such as a rotator cuff tendon in the shoulder) or ligaments (such as the anterior cruciate ligament, or ACL).

Osteoarthritis: Doctors have injected PRP into the knees of people with osteoarthritis. A 2015 study found that PRP injections were more effective than hyaluronic acid injections (a traditional therapy) for treating osteoarthritis. However, the trial was a small group of 160 people, so larger trials are needed for this to be conclusive.

How does PRP work?

A small sample of your own blood [approximately 30 - 40 mls], is processed in a highly specialised, state of the art system, specifically designed to extract the Platelet Rich Plasma [PRP].

Just like a regular blood test, your blood is extracted at the inner elbow and then placed into a PRP kit to spin / centrifuge at high speeds to separate the blood into different layers. Floating on the top is the lighter platelet-containing plasma while the heavier red blood cells is at the bottom. Then the plasma on the top is extracted for your PRP injection. PRP is normally injected using medical syringe and in some instances, micro-needling technique is applied.

Platelet Rich Plasma [PRP] contains high levels of tissue growth and regeneration factors (EGF - essential growth factors) which are vital to skin rejuvenation & repair. PRP is increasingly being recognised by specialist clinicians as a useful natural intervention to aid tissue growth and collagen stimulation.

Before you undergo PRP, numbing cream will be applied and doctors might recommend and combine PRP treatment with other skin treatments such as lasers and radio frequency (RF) treatments.

What are the potential side effects of PRP?

Because PRP involves injecting a substance into the skin, there are potential side effects. PRP is autologous, which means it contains substances that come directly from your own body. This reduces the risks for an allergic reaction that can occur from injecting other medications, such as cortisone or hyaluronic acid. However, there are risks from the injection itself, including:
  • infection
  • nerve injuries
  • pain at the injection site
  • tissue damage
You should discuss these potential risks with your doctor, as well as the steps your doctor will take to minimize these risks. Do not choose the cheapest PRP Treatment in Malaysia or simply choose PRP treatment based on price alone. PRP treatments involve injectables and need to be done in a sterile and clean manner including using a new syringe for each patient, by a trained qualified medical doctor.

PRP Treatment Price in Malaysia

The average cost for PRP treatment in Malaysia is about RM 1,000. This price varies depending on location and clinic as well as the PRP preparation kit being used in Malaysia.

Here is the price guide:
  • PRP treatment for face / wrinkles: RM 700 - 1,500 / session.
  • PRP injection for knees / joint pain: RM 3,000 - 4,000 / session.
  • PRP hair treatment: RM 2,500 - 3,500 / session.
You should only get your PRP treatment in a registered clinic as PRP should be performed in a clean environment. Ensure that your doctor uses a proper PRP preparation kit (shown below) to process the PRP. Never be shy to ask your doctor to show you the PRP preparation kit prior to your treatment. We have seen some advertisements offering prices below the cost of the PRP kit. We are not sure how is that possible? Unless they are not using a PRP preparation kit at all. So, if that's the case, what are you getting?

PRP Treatment Review in Malaysia

Who remembers when Kim K posted a selfie of her face covered with blood and shocked the whole world?
Well, proud to announce, I have followed her footstep, jumped on the bandwagon and did the so-called Vampire Facials only that it wasn't as bloody as it was seen on her.
PRP treatment or more commonly known as Vampire facial for a layman as it involves injecting 'blood' into the skin.
But the truth is, you are not actually injecting blood directly into your skin. PRP is readily available in everyone's body. And it is obtained by drawing a small amount of blood from the patient themselves where the blood will then be spun down in a centrifuge to separate the different components of the blood. The spun blood would form 3 layers where the red and white blood cells are separated from the platelets and the plasma (the clear fluid). And now the plasma is concentrated with platelets and hence the name platelet-rich plasma, or PRP...

Are all PRP therapies the same?

No, not all PRP therapies are the same. There is increasing clinical evidence that suggests that PRP therapies which contain higher concentrations of platelets produce better results. Research indicates that the optimal therapeutic concentration for effective skin rejuvenation is a platelet concentration of 3-4 times the normal level of platelets. Studies show that concentrated platelet levels of 800’000 to 1’000’000 per ml have been linked to optimal collagen formation.

PRP injection is also dependent on the skills and experience of the administering doctor. An updated doctor will also know that PRP treatment for face is best used in combination with other method e.g. ultrasound for optimal results.
