FACTOR4

Highly concentrated and a super-rich serum derived from your own natural substances, FACTOR4 contains four times more growth factors and cytokines than any comparable blood rich injection product on the market.

Whether is to address wrinkles or thin, crepey skin on the face, neck, décolletage, back of hands, or dark circles under the eyes, scars or stretch marks, this is an ideal rejuvenation treatment resulting in the significant reduction of static facial lines and overall tightening of the skin. After FACTOR4, you can expect visibly improved skin texture, tone and a reduction in lines and wrinkles. Skin will look fresher and more youthful.

Results from the FACTOR4 procedure are usually seen after two to three of weeks from the first treatment. It is recommended to undergo 4 – 6 treatments dependent on the skin, with two to four weeks between treatments. This protocol leads to the ideal result of visibly rejuvenated, beautiful skin.

FACTOR4 is used to treat:
  • Full face area
  • Fine lines
  • Thin, crepey skin
  • Scarring
  • Skin tightening
  • Dark under-eye circles
  • Skin brightening
  • Under eyes wrinkles
  • Sagging skin
  • Stretch marks
  • Back of hands
  • Wrinkly knees
  • Décolletage
  • Front & back of neck
  • Forearms

The FACTOR4 procedure involves harvesting the patient’s blood in technologically advanced tubing. The blood is then incubated between six and nine hours in total. This process exposes the blood to pyrogenic free surfaces eliciting a vigorous and rapid increase in the synthesis of growth factors in the harvested blood and related fluids.

After the centrifugation process, the harvested plasma is then extracted and filtered to become a serum . To minimise any inflammation from the FACTOR4 process, the serum contains increased concentration levels of anti-inflammatory proteins and then stored in a freezer at less than 18°C.

The FACTOR4 point of difference is the high concentration of growth factors and cytokines that contribute significantly to the quality of the results and is 100% autologous.

Patients can expect to start seeing results after a couple of weeks from the first treatment. Four treatments timed at one to two week intervals is the suggested protocol for the most beautiful outcome.

Q. How much blood is extracted?

A. 4 – 6 FACTOR4 treatments in total are required dependent on the condition of the skin. These treatments are usually given at a two to four week intervals depending on what treatment on the skin is being performed. In order to harvest the required amount of serum 2 – 3 10mL tubes will be taken followed by centrifugation, plasma extraction, and filtration to obtain the serum. The serum is then portioned and stored for your next appointment.

Q. How is FACTOR4 produced?

A. FACTOR4 is generated in technologically advanced tubing. The blood is processed using advanced technology with a 6-9 hour incubation process that separates and produces the super concentrated growth factors from your blood plasma. The plasma is then spun and filtered creating a serum to purify and refine your plasma, making it four times richer.

Q. How much serum will be collected in the FACTOR4 treatment?

A. Between 30-40mls of blood is taken to obtain 10 – 15mls of serum. This is a tenth less than what is taken compared to when you give blood. Ensuring the patient is well hydrated before the blood harvest is imperative to achieve the best results.

Q. How do I prepare myself before a FACTOR4 treatment?

A. It is suggested that you arrive early to allow for a topical anaesthetic cream to be applied to the areas being treated.

Q. What can I expect during the FACTOR4 treatment?

A. Each clinician has their own treatment applications range from blebs, threads, direct injection, cannula, micro-needling and massage techniques.

Q. What can I expect after the treatment?

A. The FACTOR4 treatment is designed to incur minimal interference to daily life, with the treatment lasting up to an hour. Ensure you drink water before your treatment to assist the skin’s hydration process. Once you leave after your appointment, it is recommended that you leave your skin free of any product for a minimum of 6 – 8 hours. It is also suggested that you limit your physical activities after your treatment, to avoid sweating or increasing the possibility of swelling or bruising.

I recently met with Shaun, the face of Factor 4 (check out my interview with him here), but I wanted to find out more about why clinics all over the country are jumping to get this treatment into their clinics and why it’s results are so revolutionary.

The Year of Skin Needling June 9, 2017 - Last year it was all about fat freezing, but 2017 is the year of skin needling. We’re calling it early, but everywhere we look there’s patients and practitioners raving about results from skin needling, otherwise known as dermal or micro needling. It’s said to provide better results than lasering but with less downtime, so this is a treatment we are excited about. Not all Skin Needling Is Equal Like all treatments, not all skin needling devices are equal, so it’s important your practitioner is using a quality device. The one we want to talk about today is MDerma from Klinic Solutions. The MDerma is different to other skin needling devices in that it’s design allows it to be used in sensitive areas that were previously not recommended for skin needling such as above and below the eyes, the lips and your nose. Practitioners are saying it’s easier to use than any other device on the market, patients are loving the minimal discomfort and downtime, and the MDerma patient before and after pictures speak for themselves. Some of Australia’s most respected Plastic Surgeons offer Factor 4 and the MDerma in their clinics. How Does Skin Needling Work? Tiny needles perforate your […]
