Factor 4 Adelaide

Restore that glowing, youthful appearance with Factor 4 injections at Melbourne Street – Advanced Cosmetic Medicine (ACM).

A Factor 4 treatment naturally stimulates collagenesis significantly slowing down the skin’s ageing process, reducing fine lines and wrinkles and improving the overall skin’s texture. Factor 4 also contains anti-inflammatory proteins. Patients can expect to start seeing results after a couple of weeks from the first treatment. Three or four treatments two to four weeks apart is the suggested treatment protocol for the most beautiful results.

We look forward to your visit.

What is Factor 4?

Factor 4 is a highly concentrated and super-rich plasma containing four times more growth factors than any brand Blood Rich Injection product. Factor 4 is autologous (harvested from the body’s own substances) and depending on the patient’s needs is used to treat wrinkles and crepiness in areas of the face, neck, décolletage, back of hands, dark eye circles, stretch marks, scars with bonus effects of significant reducing in static face lines and tightening of the skin.

Factor 4 is generated by encapsulating venous patient blood in technologically advanced tubing and then the drawn blood is incubated for between 6 and 9 hours exposing the blood to pyrogenic free surfaces eliciting a vigorous and rapid increase in the synthesis of growth factors. Following centrifugation, serum extraction and filtration the serum is portioned and stored in a freezer at -18°C.

Factor 4 is used to treat:

  • Scaring
  • Fine Lines
  • Crepey Skin
  • Sagging Skin
  • Stretch Marks
  • Skin Tightening
  • Skin Brightening
  • Dark Eye Circles
  • Back of Hands
  • Wrinkly Knees
  • Décolletage
  • Under Eyes
  • Front Neck
  • Back Neck
  • Forearms
  • Full Face

How much blood is extracted?

You will require 3-4 Factor 4 treatments, these are usually given at 1-2 week intervals. In order to allow the required amount of serum, 4 x 10ml tubes will be taken followed by centrifugation, serum extraction, and filtration. The serum is portioned and stored ready for your next appointments. Factor 4 is then used to treat your areas of concern.

How do I prepare for the extraction of my serum?

Arrive early to allow for a topical anaesthetic cream to be applied to the areas being treated. Before the topical cream is applied, your makeup and any existing facial products will be removed to allow for the topical cream to play its role. The topical cream is not mandatory, however, it is highly recommended as it makes for a more comfortable experience.

How is Factor 4 produced?

Factor 4 is generated in technologically advanced tubing. Your blood is processed using advanced technology. The 6 to 9 hour incubation process separates and produces super concentrated growth factors from your blood serum. The serum is then spun and filtered to purify and refine your serum, making it four times richer.

How much serum will be produced?

Between 30 – 40mls. This is a tenth less than what is taken when you give blood.

How do I prepare myself before a Factor 4 treatment?

Arrive early to allow for a topical anaesthetic cream to be applied to the areas being treated. Before the topical cream is applied, your makeup and any existing facial products will be removed to allow for the topical cream to play its role. The topical cream is not mandatory, however, it is highly recommended as it makes for a more comfortable experience.

What can I expect during the Factor 4 treatment?

Each clinician has their own treatment protocols. These treatment applications range from direct injection, cannulae, drizzle, micro-needling and massage techniques.

What should I expect after a Factor 4 treatment?

Skin redness can persist for up to 24 hrs, very occasionally this may last for 2 days. You may also have mild bruising or swelling around the eyes and lips, as with any clinical procedure.

What is the recommended post care?

Factor 4 is designed with minimal interference to daily life, with the treatment lasting up to an hour. Ensure you drink a litre of water, assisting the skins hydration process. Once you leave the clinic, it’s recommended that you leave your skin application free for minimum 12 hours.

Can I return to activities after a Factor 4 treatment?

It is suggested that you limit your activities after your treatment, to avoid sweating or increasing the possibility of swelling or bruising. It is also recommended to not apply make up or wash the treatment area for 12 hours.

Can I return to activities after a Factor 4 treatment?

Factor 4 is truly an autologous system and is not diluted with any liquids keeping it free of additives or extra enzymes that the body has to process. It is completely natural and extremely rich in growth factors allowing the new layering of collagen structures.

How often should I have it?

To get the best results, we recommend that you have a minimum of 4 Factor 4 treatments spaced between 10 days and 4 weeks apart. The recommended time between treatments depends upon your specific course of treatment. Within 3 weeks there will be a noticeable difference in skin texture and tone.

The effects of these treatments will last for approximately 12 months (smoking, alcohol and other health factors can influence this) and we recommend a program of annual injections for continuing benefits.

This treatment involves no downtime or missed work. Some bruising at the injection sites is normal.

Factor 4  growth factor therapy is a revolutionary treatment for those suffering from alopecia.  Treatment is performed by the injection of autologous plasma into the scalp using a needling device.  Growth factors stimulate the scalp to regrow hair for a thicker and fuller head of hair.

Factor 4 treatment is an excellent treatment for the reduction of large pores.  Collagen growth within the skin causes the pores to shrink in size as they close up.
