Is also called an autologous serum which means that it is derived and developed from your very own blood with no additives!
FACTOR 4 treatments provide a natural method of skin rejuvenation utilising your own enhanced serum.
The process includes an initial blood extraction by our Registered nurse. The blood is then placed in an incubator and centrifuge for filtering. The resulting serum is 4 times richer in growth factors and cytokines than whole blood-hence the name Factor 4
The serum is administered into the skin using a
micro needling device via a course of 4
treatments every 10-14 days.
Top up treatments are recommended annually.
Some of the serum can also be injected to areas such as tear troughs (under the eyes)
Pricing is $1990 for the package

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How much blood is extracted?
Two x 10 ml vials. Your serum is portioned and frozen ready for your next appointments and used to treat your areas of concern.
How do I prepare for the blood extraction?
Consume between two to four litres of water in the 24 hours prior. Reduce or avoid alcohol consumption the night before as this can dehydrate you and increase the risk of bruising. The more hydrated you are beforehand, the more serum produced
Is Factor4 mixed with anything else?
No. It is not diluted with any other liquid and is a truly autologous system (obtained from the same individual) making it completely natural and extremely rich in growth factors and cytokines, allowing for the creation of new collagen structures.
How much serum is needed to treat an area?
Can more than 1 area be done in 1 visit?
The face is one area and the neck/chest can either be one or two areas depending on the surface area. A good guide is four treatments of 2.5mls = 10mls which is generally required for one area, however this can vary from patient to patient. It is best practice to only treat one area at a time.
How do I prepare for the treatment?
Simply arrive early to allow for a topical anaesthetic cream application to the treatment area.
Is it painful?
A topical anaesthetic cream is always used to ensure comfort
Are there any side effects?
Skin redness can persist for up to 24–48 hours and occasionally this may last two days. You may also experience mild bruising or swelling around your eyes and lips.
What is recommended after the treatment?
Please ensure you drink plenty of water and do not wash your skin for twelve hours. Moisturise your skin 3–5 times a day for 3–5 days. You may experience drier skin in the following days which is completely normal. Once the redness has completely dissipated, you can resume your normal skin care regime, however we suggest you check with your practitioner, should you have any questions or concerns.
Can I return to normal activities after a Factor4 treatment?
It is strongly recommended to limit exercise and sweating to avoid the possibility of swelling and bruising for twelve hours.
