Factor 4

Factor 4 is similar to Platelet Rich Plasma treatment but it is a more refined and targeted and offers a natural alternative to cosmetic surgery, or other injectable options. Factor 4 produces up to 4 times more growth factors that other Platelet Rich Plasma treatments. The result is a brighter and healthier looking complexion and younger looking skin.

How does Factor 4 work?

A sample of your blood is taken and incubated. After 6 – 9 hours of incubation, the red blood cells and removed from the plasma. The end result is your individual Factor 4 serum which includes your own growth factors which will stimulate collagen production. This serum can be used immediately or stored for future sessions. The serum is then injected into the area of concern. This stimulates your collagen and results in improved elasticity, and a slowing of the aging process.
