FACTOR4 Skin Rejuvenation

The Gold Standard of Skin Rejuvenation

FACTOR4 is a revolutionary, scientific anti-aging treatment that is derived from your body’s own blood. This treatment involves concentrating your own blood plasma, and administering it to the face to improve lines, rejuvenate the skin and give a more youthful complexion.

4 x The Results

Containing anti-inflammatory, repair and growth factors, FACTOR4 (also called Autologous Anti-ageing serum) is a super-rich conditioned serum with 4 times more growth factor than any other blood-derived treatment such as the more commonly known platelet rich plasma (PRP) treatment. This means 4 x the results!

FACTOR4 naturally stimulates your own collagen to:

  • Improve skin texture, tone and elasticity
  • Reduce fine lines, wrinkles and pore size
  • Promote a more youthful complexion
  • Reduce the ageing process of the skin

How do we create your own FACTOR4 formulation?

To create your FACTOR4 formulation our practitioners extract a small sample of your blood (10-20 mls). In the 24 hours before your blood extraction, we suggest you consume 2 to 4 litres of water and avoid or reduce consumption of alcohol. When you are fully hydrated, more serum can be produced.  Using a patented scientific technique, your blood is incubated, spun and filtered. This produces a concentrated, highly refined serum that is 4 times richer in growth factors than the original blood; hence the name ‘FACTOR4.’

The amount of FACTOR4 is usually enough to perform 4 treatments and recommend you have your treatments 1 to 2 weeks apart. Your FACTOR4 serum can be frozen for up to 7 months.

What happens during your FACTOR4 treatment?

On the day of your treatment, your skin will be cleansed thoroughly. To minimise any pain or discomfort, a topical anaesthetic cream is then applied to the treatment area. Your FACTOR4 is then delivered into the deeper layers of the dermis via skin needling.

Depending on the areas you are having treated, your FACTOR4 treatment will take between 45 to 60 minutes. This minimally invasive treatment results in a release of growth factors that stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin.

To create your FACTOR4 formulation our practitioners extract a small sample of your blood (10-20 mls). In the 24 hours before your blood extraction, we suggest you consume 2 to 4 litres of water and avoid or reduce consumption of alcohol. When you are fully hydrated, more serum can be produced.  Using a patented scientific technique, your blood is incubated, spun and filtered. This produces a concentrated, highly refined serum that is 4 times richer in growth factors than the original blood; hence the name ‘FACTOR4.’

During the 6–9 hours of incubation, your blood is exposed to small glass beads that are etched with tiny grooves. This makes the blood cells release potent growth and repair factors, as though they are repairing trauma. Once culturing is complete, the blood is centrifuged, filtered and your valuable serum is retained. The amount of FACTOR4 is usually enough to perform 4 treatments and recommend you have your treatments 1 to 2 weeks apart. Your FACTOR4 serum can be frozen for up to 7 months.

It’s important to note that unlike some PRP’s, FACTOR4 is 100% autologous and has no additives or chemicals added. The FACTOR4 treatment serum is rich in your own anti-inflammatory protein IL-1Ra and contains a super concentration of your body’s Cytokines and rich Growth Factors, which negates any inflammatory response in the skin.

After your first FACTOR4 treatment you can expect to see improvements after a couple of weeks. While results vary, most patients see the best results after they have 4 treatments every 5 to 10 days. For optimum results, we suggest you have top-up treatments every 6 to 12 months.

After your FACTOR4 treatment, your skin may be red and slightly swollen for 2-4 days. Some patients may experience mild swelling and sometimes bruising. It is important to stay hydrated and leave your skin make-up free for at least 12 hours post-treatment. To minimise any swelling or bruising, avoid strenuous exercise for 24 hours.

Factor4 and PRP are considered similar, however, there are some differences. Both begin with blood extraction and involve separating the liquid to concentrate the healing factors. However, PRP is often activated by the addition of certain liquids, such as thrombin or calcium chloride. Factor4 uses only the compounds that came from your own blood.

When you undergo PRP therapy, blood samples are usually taken each time you arrive for treatment. Although extracting blood is fairly painless, many people would prefer to limit the procedure if possible.

Finally, Factor4 can produce four times as many growth factors as PRP treatments. The additional growth factors may deliver results more effectively and quickly than PRP.
