Preparation for the FACTOR4 treatment is fairly straight forward. Reduce or avoid alcohol consumption the night before as this can dehydrate you and increase the risk of bruising during the treatment. Consume 2 – 4 litres of water in the 24 hours before you come in to have your blood taken to ensure you are nicely hydrated.
You will require 3-4 FACTOR4 treatments, these are usually given at a 1-2 week intervals. In order to allow the required amount of serum, 2-4 x 10ml tubes will be taken followed by centrifugation, serum extraction, and filtration. The serum is portioned and stored ready for your next appointments. FACTOR4 is then used to treat your areas of concern
FACTOR4 is generated in technologically advanced tubing. Your blood is processed using advanced technology. The 6 – 9 hour incubating process separates and produces super concentrated growth factors from your blood serum. The serum is then spun and filtered to purify and refine your serum, making it four times richer.
Between 10 – 20mls.
Arrive early to allow for a topical anaesthetic cream to be applied to the areas being treated. Before the topical cream is applied, your make up and any existing facial products will be removed to allow for the topical cream to play its role. The topical cream is not mandatory, however, it is highly recommended as it makes for a more comfortable experience.
Each clinician has their own treatment protocols. These treatment applications range from blebs, threads, direct injection, cannula, drizzle, micro-needling and massage techniques.
Skin redness can persist for up to 24 hrs, very occasionally this may last for 2 days. You may also have mild bruising or swelling around the eyes and lips, as with any clinical procedure.
FACTOR4 is designed with minimal interference to daily life, with the treatment lasting up to an hour. Ensure you drink a litre of water, assisting the skins hydration process. Once you leave the clinic, it’s recommended that you leave your skin application free for minimum 12 hours. Klinic Solutions recommends Beaute Pacifique Serum Paradoxe and the Beaute Pacifique product line.
It is suggested that you limit your activities after your treatment, to avoid sweating or increasing the possibilty of swelling or bruising. It is also recommended not to apply make up or wash the treatment area for 12 hours.
FACTOR4 is truly an autologous system and is not diluted with any liquids keeping it free of additives or extra enzymes that the body has to process. It is completely natural and extremely rich in growth factors allowing for the layering of new collagen structures.
