How Factor4 is made
To create your very own Factor4 formulation, we take a sample of your blood and incubate it using a patented scientific technique.
After 6–9 hours of incubation, we remove the red blood cells from the plasma. The end-product is your own personalised Factor4 treatment serum, a highly-concentrated formulation of your own growth factor and cytokines. It may be used immediately or stored for future sessions.
Benefits of Factor4
Factor4 naturally stimulates your body’s own collagen, which in turn improves skin elasticity, slows ageing and reduces fine lines and wrinkles. It also treats scarring and helps to minimise pores. Factor4 will help you to achieve a younger, brighter, healthier complexion while improving the tone and texture of your skin.
You can expect to see improvements after a couple of weeks from your first Factor4 treatment. Once you have had 3–4 treatments, you will experience the most beautiful results. Results may vary between individuals.
Each clinician has their own methods for administering Factor4. These include micro-needling, drizzling, direct injections, threads, blebs and cannulas. After administering Factor4 using one of these methods, the clinician will drizzle on any remaining serum and massage the skin.
Your body will naturally accept Factor4 because it contains a super-concentration of your own growth factor and cytokines.
Factor4 is available for all skin types. Your practitioner will advise a suitable treatment for you at your consultation.
