About the Factor4 Plasma Therapy
Factor 4 is the next generation and most advanced collagen stimulating serum treatment. It is a super-rich autologous serum with four time more growth factors and cytokines than any form of PRP.
Factor 4 has four times more growth factors than other PRP treatments and none of the usual additives. This high concentration of growth factors is the reason why it is superior to any other PRP for skin rejuvenation and tightening.
It is a regenerative medicine used widely in the world and especially popular in celebrities who are searching effective and natural antiageing solution. It is also known as Vampire Facelift, “Kobe Bryant shot” and “Kim Kardashian treatment”.
The Factor4 treatment is a natural way of stimulating your body’s own collagen production to increase and restore your skin’s elasticity and firmness. It slows down your skin’s ageing process and reduces fine lines, wrinkles, hair restoration as well as reduces open pores and scars. After the treatment, you are left with a much brighter and radiant skin, a healthier complexion and an even skin tone and texture.
For the Factor4 treatment, your blood is first processed using highly advanced patented technology tubing in order to produce the Factor4 serum. It requires a 6 to 9 hour incubation period to separate the cellular matter of blood and extract from it the super concentrated, rich grow factors and cytokines to be used for treatment. This plasma concentrate is then spun in a centrifuge and purified to make the serum 4 times stronger.
The process generally yields 8 to 10 ml of serum but the amount varies from person to person. One extraction will give you four treatments (sessions).
The Factor4 serum is administered by injecting it into your skin using either a micro-needling device or by injection. This is done over a course of 4 sessions every 5 to 10 days. The treatment takes about one hour per session and a maintenance treatment is recommended every 12 months.

What does it do?
The Factor4 treatment is used to treat wrinkles and fine lines in areas of the face and neck, décolletage, back of hands and under-eye circles, and also the appearance of stretch marks and scarring on other areas of the body. It leaves your skin with a radiant, healthy complexion and makes the skin look younger and more supple.
How does it work?
The Factor4 treatment uses an Autologous Conditioned Serum (ACS) which is a natural skin rejuvenation serum that uses your own cells from your blood plasma. After being extracted from your blood sample, when the ACS is injected back into your skin it triggers your skin’s stem cells to act and results in the formation of new collagen at the site. It also contains a high concentration of growth factors which are natural simulators responsible for accelerating the healing process. So it is a natural rejuvenation process that improves over time.
Who is it for?
The Factor4 is suitable for anyone with signs of skin aging or excessive open pores, scarring, pigmentation or sun damage. It is suitable for both men and women. The treatment is usually taken up by adults in their mid 40’s or older, but is equally suitable for younger people who suffer from any of these skin issues as well or want to prevent premature aging.
What Are the Side Effects?
There are no serious side effects of this treatment. It may cause a slight reddening of the skin which usually persists for 24 to 48 hours and occasionally may take up to 2 days to subside for certain patients. When used around the yes or lips, you may experience mild bruising or swelling which usually goes away in a few days.
