An anti-ageing treatment that is commonly associated with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy, Factor 4 takes PRP and skin rejuvenation to the next level to deliver a refreshed and rejuvenated appearance.While Factor 4 is used predominantly as an anti-ageing measure, the procedure can be used to treat a number of skin conditions, including dehydrated skin, acne scarring, fine wrinkles and for skin ulcers.
Factor 4 treatments involve taking a blood sample from the patient. From this blood sample, we harvest the plasma which is highly concentrated and rich with platelets. These platelets produce growth factors which help to turn over existing cells in the treated areas while simultaneously producing natural collagen, which is the key component to smooth, wrinkle-free skin.
Once the clinician has drawn your blood and transferred it to special Factor 4 tubes, it’s left to incubate for at least 6 hours. Throughout this waiting period, the blood sample produces a serum that is abundant in growth factors that encourage collagen production and promote skin firmness and elasticity. This natural serum also includes anti-inflammatory cells.
Once the blood has completed its incubation period, it is spun through a centrifuge machine which isolates the serum from the rest of the blood matter. We then extract the serum and store it, ready for your Factor 4 treatment.
While PRP was the gold standard in anti-ageing treatment for a long time, and still certainly produces great results, Factor 4 steps it up thanks to the use of special Factor 4 tubes.These tubes
feature technologically superior surfaces that accelerate the production of growth factors to the extent that the resultant serum includes four times more growth factors than PRP.
