How Factor 4 can improve your complexion

factor4-facial-treatment

 

All over the world celebrities and in-the-know beauty seekers are turning to the revolutionary and age-defying properties of Factor4 injectable treatments – also known commonly as  “Vampire Facials”.

Put simply, Factor4 naturally stimulates collagen production and creates a rich blood plasma containing four times more growth factors than any blood-rich injection or treatment on the market. This means that when injected into your problem areas, Factor4 plasma works swiftly and effectively to combat the signs of aging.

So how can this treatment help your complexion?

 

What is a Factor4 treatment?

A Factor4 treatment starts with the harvesting of a small blood sample from the patient, no more than what would be taken for a blood test at the doctor’s office.

Over the course of several hours, the sample undergoes centrifugation, serum extraction and filtration to create a high quality plasma product. Once perfected, the sample is divided into portions and goes into cold storage.

With the plasma prepared, the patient then returns to the clinic for their first treatment.

 

What does Factor4 treat?

Because Factor4 is so effective, this process is best used for a patient’s problem areas, such as:

  • Scarring
  • Fine lines
  • Crepe-like skin
  • Stretch marks
  • Sagging skin
  • Dark circles
  • Blotchy décolletage
  • Neck wrinkles, and more

 

What happens during treatment?

In consultation with the practitioner, the patient will nominate the areas that they most want to treat; then:

  • Makeup is removed and a topical anaesthetic is applied to the target area; this makes the delivery process more comfortable.
  • Once the area is numb, the treated plasma product is injected in a series of stages – and then gently massaged – into the target area.

 

What happens to the skin during treatment?

Factor4’s potency means that it naturally stimulates the production of collagen, which:

  • Improves elasticity to the area
  • Reduces the appearance of pores and scars
  • Slows down the aging process, and
  • Enhances skin texture

 

How long does a treatment last?

Depending on the area being treated, a session can take up to an hour.

 

How many treatments are required?

For best results, repeat Factor4 treatments are recommended in fortnightly intervals. Factor4 is so potent that most clients report seeing best results after their third or fourth session.

 

Is Factor4 uncomfortable?

While all clients experience treatments a little differently, most report that it is no more uncomfortable than any other injectable treatment, the gentle and professional touch at Dr Zacharia’s practice is there to put you at ease so you can relax and focus on the excitement of seeing your results.

 

What should I expect immediately after treatment?

Clients should expect to see some localised redness, and on more sensitive skin, possibly a little localised swelling and bruising – this discomfort usually subsides within the first 24 hours.

For the first 12 hours after treatment, we recommend clients to abstain from applying makeup and washing their face.

To prevent any further irritation to the treated area, we also recommend patients to avoid physical activities, that lead to sweating and raised heart rates for example, so you can be sure to enjoy the best healing time and delight in your results.
