Factor 4

Factor 4

Factor4 is a highly concentrated, autologous (harvested from the bodies own substances) super-rich serum containing four times more anti-inflammatory, repair and growth factors than traditional Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), a treatment popularised by Kim Kardashian and often referred to as the “Vampire Facial.”

It is 100% natural with no extra chemicals or additives, which makes this treatment an ideal choice for individuals who are seeking an all natural option for skin rejuvenation.

 

Factor4 is used for:

  • Fine lines

  • Skin tone and texture

  • Wrinkles

  • Crepey skin

  • Sagging skin

  • Stretch marks

  • Scars

  • Under eye crepey skin and dark circles (this is most popular, as this area is so hard to treat via other methods)

  • Neck and décolletage

  • Back of the hands

  • Hair rejuvenation in men and women

  • Gynaecological conditions

 

What preparation do I need to do, and how many treatments do I need?

In the 24 hours before your blood extraction please consume 2 to 4L of water and avoid or reduce consumption of alcohol. Usually, 4 treatments are required for skin rejuvenation and 6 treatments are required for hair loss. Each treatment is generally space 2 to 4 weeks apart.

What are the possible side effects?

After your Factor4 treatment, your skin may be red and swollen for 2 to 4 days. There may also be some discomfort, bleeding or bruising. Small bruises may take 1 to 2 weeks to resolve, however these can often be covered up with make-up. Infection is rare but can occur.

When will I see results?

For skin rejuvenation, improvement in skin tone and texture may be noticeable after a few weeks following the first treatment. Induction of collagen may take 4 to 6 weeks and will continue for several months.

 

In hair loss treatment most patients will notice a thickening in their hair by 6 weeks. However, this will continue to improve over the following 12 months. Individual results do vary. For optimum results top-up treatment is recommended every 6 to 12 months.

What happens during factor 4 treatment?

In preparation for Factor4 treatment, 10 - 20 mls of your blood is collected in specially designed collection tubes. Your blood is then incubated for 6-9 hours, allowing the platelets and cells to produce growth factors and cytokines.

 

Following this, the products are spun at a high frequency in a machine called a centrifuge, which separates the serum from the cell products. This crucial step allows for the purification of the autologous condition serum (Factor4). The solution is subsequently filtered to ensure only the purest, most concentrated extract is produced.

A major benefit of the aqueous serum is its storage properties; the solution itself may be frozen for up to 7 months for further treatments, removing the need for future blood extractions. The two main forms of Factor4 treatment include direct injection into the skin to stimulate collagen and elastin production, or incorporation into a skin needling treatment.
