Factor 4 is an alternative skin needling treatment that significantly boosts the body's own growth factors to stimulate collagen production, benefiting overall skin appearance. This process can help reduce fine lines, wrinkles, sagging of the skin, hair rejuvenation, reduction of pores and scarring and is said to be longer lasting then Botox.
Factor4 is processed through patented technologically advanced tubing, which is the process of separating the blood from the super-concentrated plasma. By performing this treatment your body will naturally accept the plasma, as it contains a super-concentration of your own rich growth factors and cytokines which promotes rapid healing and optimal results.
Patients will need to come into the clinic before their first Factor 4 session to have a blood collection with one of our therapists.
We aim to collect x2 vials of blood from the patients arm which is then incubated in a hot box for 6-8 hours to separate the red blood cells and plasma.
The plasma is then extracted and spun in a centrifuge device to multiply ones own growth factors.
The growth factors are then stored for up to 6 months in clinic and patients can receive on average, up to x4 factor 4 skin needling treatments from the one blood collection.
The patient will have topical numbing cream applied to the treatment being treated 45 minutes prior to appointment. During treatment the patients own factor 4 plasma and growth factor serum is applied to the skin for the micro needling treatment to take place.
Patients can experience the vibration from the needling pen device however not the needles themselves.
There are some areas of the face that are more sensitive than other areas such as the forehead, cheek bones and jawline. This is usually due to the area not having much cushion from fatty deposits.
The numbing sensation from the numbing cream will wear off usually after 2-4 hours post treatment.
The patient will experience some erythema or redness and possible mild swelling and this can last up to 24-48 hours.
Some patients can experience small blood spot bruises in some areas of the face and this usually resolves after 48 hours.
It is recommended to not wear any makeup during this 48 hour period and to keep out of the sun for the healing phase.
Day 2-7 is the remodeling phase where the healing response is taking place and collagen is being produced. During this time, come initial results of skin tightening, plumping and even skin tone can be seen. However, the results continue to improve for the next 7-30 days. This is when the treatment should then be repeated.
Factor 4 Hair Restoration naturally stimulates the body’s own hair follicles and overall appearance of the hair. By performing this treatment with the plasma your body will naturally accept the solution, as it contains a super-concentration of your own rich growth factors and cytokines. This process encourages instinctive strong and vibrant hair growth to the targeted area of concern.
*4-6 treatments, every 14 days are recommended for optimal results, as well as maintenance treatments if necessary.
