Factor4 reinvigorates the skin, toning it and increasing volume, resulting in reducing both wrinkles and fine lines in the face, neck, upper chest (décolletage) and the backs of hands. It also improves dark circles around the eyes. It also improves static facial lines, and tightens the skin. Since it contains significant levels of anti-inflammatory proteins, down time is also reduced, leading to a faster recovery of your skin.
The highly concentrated growth factor rich serum is created by taking a sample of your own blood that is then incubated for 6 – 9 hours using a patented scientific technique. The red blood cells are then removed from the plasma resulting in your own personalized Factor 4 treatment serum – a highly concentrated formulation of your own growth factors and cytokines. This can be used immediately or stored for future treatments.
Factor4 can be administrated in multiple ways such as micro-needling, drizzling, direct injections, threads, blebs and cannulas followed by applying any remaining serum to the areas of concern and massaging it into the skin. Your body will naturally accept Factor4 as it only contains a super concentration of your own growth factor and cytokines. It is available for all skin types. The practitioner will decide on the best and suitable treatment for you at your initial consultation.
Results may start to be seen after a week after the initial treatment, with 3-4 treatments one to two weeks apart for maximum effects.
After the blood sample has been taken, it is then incubated and exposed to a sterile surface, that makes your platelets go into overdrive and synthesis large amounts of growth factor. These growth factors naturally stimulate collagenases (enzymes that help breakdown and rebuild collagen) leading to a slowing down of the skin’s ageing processes, as well as increasing the volume of collagen and elastin in the dermis. This is seen by a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles. These two effects combine to produce an overall improvement in the skins appearance and texture.The Esq. Experience
At Esq. Clinic, we tailor each treatment to your specific needs, as no two faces are the same. Our expert team of highly skilled doctors and specialists assess your suitability for the treatment and examine for other potential causes for the double chin, such as an enlarged submandibular gland and thyroid. Photographs are taken to record the results.
The Esq. Experience
Before undergoing a treatment course, you will have a consultation to ensure that this is the best treatment to help with your skin concerns. Our team of highly qualified staff will then take your blood sample and then commence its incubation. A follow up appointment will be made for your first treatment session which can be as soon as later the same day, or the next day. Topical anaesthetic is applied prior to treatment. After a treatment, you should expect some redness of the skin which can persist for up to 24 – 48 hours. If you have had treatment around the eyes or lips, there may be some mild bruising and swelling. It is recommended to keep your skin product free for 12 hours after treatment. Avoid exercise or activities leading to excess sweating for 12 hours after treatment, as this can increase swelling and bruising. After this moisturize your skin 3-5 times a day for 3-5 days. You may experience drier skin in the following days which is completely normal.
