Challenging the norms of conventional heath care, The KL Sky Clinic is Malaysia’s pioneer of lifestyle medicine. Creating a unique avenue for people to better their health, naturally, this clinic is not just for the sick. It advocates strongly, treatments and services that strengthen and heal the body internally, so that it can fight better another day.
A name inspired by the location of their office on the 36th floor of the SOHO Suites in KL, its fundamental purpose since 2014, is to gather young doctors to work together. Stepping into the Sky Clinic feels akin to stepping into a spa. It’s comfortable, it’s cosy, and the doctors are open and approachable. Already, it does not emanate a typical hospital atmosphere. You will get up close and personal with one of the friendly doctors here for a consultation at just RM 50 and a health screen if necessary. And after running the appropriate lab analysis, you’ll have a custom made treatment plan, tailored to improve your wellbeing.
We asked the doctors about some of the noteworthy treatments and services they provide and got some interesting answers.
Platelet Rich Plasma Facial (PRP)
We gave this treatment a try. Also known as the ‘vampire facial’ made popular by Kim Kardashian, PRP is a way to rejuvenate your skin, giving back your face that natural glow. This procedure sounds rather alarming at first, what with needing to extract some blood from the patient to begin the treatment. But rest assured, it does not look, or feel, as bad as it sounds. The blood taken will be placed in a centrifuge to separate the plasma from the red and white blood cells. And this concentrated plasma, rich in platelets containing an abundance of growth factors, is then injected into the face using micro needles. Don’t worry, numbing cream will be applied to your face beforehand so you won’t be in pain. What the micro-needling does, is that it creates tiny punctures in the skin’s top layer.
This “controlled injury” triggers the body to create new collagen and elastin, a key part of our skin that begins to reduce as we age. This micro-needling, coupled with the growth factor rich plasma stimulates our own skin’s healing powers that will translate into healthier skin. So if you’re looking to reduce those pigmentations, scars and fine lines, have a natural face lift, and even out that skin tone, come to KL Sky Clinic and the doctors here will carry out this procedure for you safely and effectively.
IV Vitamin Cocktails
Often times, only 15% of the nutrients in the food we eat gets absorbed by our bodies. So it’s no surprise that we lack certain nutrients, and that shows itself in certain symptoms, like fatigue, hair fall, dull skin and falling sick easily. Fortunately, there is now a way to introduce water soluble vitamins and minerals directly into the bloodstream for maximum absorption. Through an intravenous (IV) vitamin drip. This treatment allows the nutrients to reach your body instantly, at a cellular level, to maintain optimum wellness. At the Sky Clinic, there are a range of multivitamin ‘cocktails’ whose contents vary according to the needs. It could have an array of benefits from improved skin tone and energy levels, to remedial ones like a boost in immune system and slowing down of the aging process, all the way to being a natural alternative to post cancer treatment. Contact the doctors here to find out the right ‘cocktail’ for you.
