The science of anti-ageing treatments has been revolutionised by the development of FACTOR4 plasma therapy. FACTOR4 treatment is a natural anti-ageing treatment that uses your own blood to stimulate collagen production and reduce the signs of ageing. With significant levels of anti-inflammatory proteins your skin quickly regains its youthful glow. FACTOR4 is a super rich, highly concentrated serum that is the treatment of choice to get younger skin because it has growth factors four times more than similar products.
FACTOR4 is an advanced Growth Factor therapy and Cytokine rich in anti-inflammatory Protein IL-1Ra that:
- Reduces skin pores,
- Improves skin texture and elasticity,
- Reduces the ageing process of the skin, and
- Improves fine lines and wrinkles.
We can use this next generation anti-ageing treatment to restore your collagen and promote the development of younger looking skin on the back of your hands, neck, face and décolletage.
How is FACTOR4 made?
Created from a small sample of your own blood (10-20 mls) FACTOR4 is a super rich, anti-ageing serum with 4 times more growth factor than any other blood rich injectable. The FACTOR4 anti-ageing treatment appeals to many of our patients because it is natural and does not contain any additional enzymes or foreign additives.

What are the benefits of FACTOR4 treatment?
By harnessing the regenerative power of your blood with your own growth factors and cytokines, FACTOR4 rejuvenates and freshens your skin. Patients who have had a course of FACTOR4 treatments notice the following benefits.
Reduced fine lines and wrinkles
FACTOR4 stimulates collagen production resulting in smoother looking skin. During the natural ageing process, dynamic wrinkles form due to your facial expressions. When you’re young the skin will bounce back to its original shape after you make a facial expression. As you get older the skin no longer bounces back, resulting in static wrinkles that are evident when you’re not making any facial expression. Combined with the natural loss of facial volume, people may notice they look old and gaunt. FACTOR4 reduces fine lines and wrinkles, creating a fresh, young complexion.
Improved skin tone and texture
When you age the collagen and elastin production within your skin naturally slows down. This results in your skin looking older than you feel. FACTOR4 natural anti-ageing treatment stimulates collagen production that rejuvenates the tone and texture of your skin.
Reduced skin pores
While enlarged skin pores can occur anywhere on the body, it can be upsetting if they are on your face. As you get older and the body’s production of collagen declines, skin pores will appear to enlarge. FACTOR4 treatment effectively reduces skin pores by improving the production of collagen production and increasing the natural healing qualities of your skin.
The best skin care to use after your FACTOR4 treatment
After your FACTOR4 treatment, it is vital that you keep your skin nourished, hydrated and protected. Dermaceutic Tri Vita C Serum is an innovative protection and rejuvenation formula with 3 different forms of Vitamin C (15% L-Ascorbic Acid, 14.5% Ascorbyl Silanol and 0.5% Ascorbyl Ester) that reach several layers of the skin. Combined with the antioxidant benefits of Ferulic Acid and Vitamin E, skin becomes firmer, brighter, smoother and noticeably more radiant.
Biopelle KNR Serum helps brighten and even out skin tone. The 3 powerful agents Kojic Acid, Niacinamide and Retinol combine with peptides and skin rejuvenation ingredients to deliver a clearer complexion. KNR Serum is Hydroquinone free and features an exclusive Retinsphere liposomal delivery system, which increases the penetration and efficacy of the Retinol.
Aspect Dr Mild Clean Facial Cleanser is a gentle foaming gel that cleanses and calms your skin. Designed for reactive, sensitive and dry skin it is also suitable for rosacea sufferers. The anti-inflammatory combination of Canadian Willowherb and Vegetable Glycerine nourishes as it removes makeup.
