PRP Malaysia – Natural Treatment & Therapy
Platelet Rich Plasma is a procedure that has been used successfully for years to heal sports injuries is now becoming the treatment of choice by women to improve the appearance of wrinkles, scars, sun damage and even dark circles under their eyes.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) in Malaysia is gaining in popularity for the same reasons athletes chose it: because of its organic nature and because it works. It uses plasma taken from the patient’s own blood instead of chemicals injected into the body. The possibility of side effects is practically nonexistent because the body is unlikely to reject its own blood.
The treatment has become popularly known as the Platelet-Rich Plasma Facelift thanks to one celebrity, Kim Kardashian, who tried and recommended the procedure, and gave it its nickname.

Combining PRP With Microneedling
A study in the Journal of Cutaneous and Aesthetic Surgery compared the results of two different combination treatments. The first combination paired PRP with a treatment called Microneedling, which is collagen induction therapy.
This combination was compared to Microneedling paired with Vitamin C. The treatments were conducted on patients with acne scars.
Thirty patients ages 18 to 34 participated in the 2013 study, and received four treatments each, with an interval of four weeks between each treatment.
The right side of each patient’s face was treated with the PRP combo and the left side with the Vitamin C combination. To be included in the study, the scarring from acne had to be rated with a Grade II, III or IV on the Goodman and Baron scale.
Digital photos of both sides of each patient’s face were taken before the treatments began and after they were concluded using the same positions, lighting and background.
The acne scars were again graded using the Goodman and Baron scale after treatments. Both patients and doctors rated the improvement and change of grade of the acne scars. All the results were entered into Microsoft Excel database and analyzed using standard statistical methods. Of the 30 patients, the scars of 23 were reduced by one or two grades with the PRP combination.
Combining PRP with Fractional Laser
Twenty-two women participated in a study, published by the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery, that combined PRP with Fractional Laser treatments to analyze the effects on rejuvenating their skin.
Eleven had a topical application of PRP along with three Fractional laser treatments, while the other 11 just had three Fractional Laser treatments alone. The patients were evaluated both before they were treated and 30 days after their treatments.
Several different types of assessments were employed, including blind clinical evaluations, patient satisfaction and even biopsies of the skin. The results showed that skin rejuvenation was better with PRP, and patient satisfaction was higher with PRP compared to Fractional Laser alone.
Regenerative Medicine: Why There’s No Side Effects With It?
Platelet Rich Plasma literally stimulates new cell growth in the patient’s body wherever it is injected.
It helps the body heal itself the natural way without using chemicals or foreign substances of any kind. The possibility of an allergic reaction or infection is almost nil because the plasma comes from the patient’s own body.
How does PRP therapy differ from other injections or fillers?
Hyaluronic acid fillers, such as Restylane and Juvederm, is composed of solid material that fills lines and skin folds.
These fillers are indicated to soften deeper lines such as the folds around the mouth area, or to plump lips. They usually last from 6-18 months; repeated treatments are required to fill the area again.
PRP stimulates your own collagen to grow for total facial rejuvenation rather than individual wrinkle improvement.
PRP is used for volumizing faces that are beginning to look drawn, to plump out cheek indentations, soften under eye hollows, improve the skin tone, tightness, and texture, and fill in areas where hyaluronic acid fillers cannot reach or are not safe to use.
Restylane and Juvederm can be used with PRP as the two types of treatments are meant for different purposes; they supplement each other to give the best final outcome of a more youthful looking face.
Restylane and Juvederm fill specific lines and folds, PRP improves overall volume, fullness, and skin tone.
What to expect during and after the PRP therapy in Malaysia?
A small amount of blood will be drawn from you. While the PRP is being prepared, your skin will be cleansed and prepared for the treatment. The injections take a few moments, and are only mildly uncomfortable.
The procedure is quick (15 minutes total), relatively painless, and requires no post procedure care or time off from daily events. Mild swelling, redness, or bruising fade within 1-3 days. The PRP is made from your own cells, virtually eliminating the possibility of negative side effects.
What are the PRP ultimate outcomes?
The goal of PRP skin rejuvenation therapy is to improve skin tone and texture, tighten skin, soften lines and pores.
Results begin to show 3-4 weeks after the treatment session and continue to improve with time.
Three treatment sessions are generally recommended, spaced 1-2 months apart, to achieve the best outcome.
PRP therapy can be combined with laser treatments, microdermabrasion, chemical peels, Restylane, Juvederm, and/or BOTOX® Cosmetic to best target a patient’s unique issues and thus achieve the final goal of younger looking skin. Maintenance PRP treatments should be given over time.
Women who have had the Platelet-Rich Plasma Facelift treatment find their faces look even better several months after they have had the treatments.
That’s because the plasma stimulates their skin’s stem cells to produce more collagen, grow new cells and literally rejuvenate their skin
