Skin Needling & Factor4. What you need to know.

May 30, 2018

Skin Needling formally known as Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) is an exciting natural treatment to improve your skin texture, smooth wrinkles, fine lines and soften scars.  At me clinic we incorporate skin needling with Factor4 treatment for optimum results.

What is Skin Needling?

The treatment operates on the principle that when the skin needling device creates microscopic injuries to the skin, it causes the skin to rejuvenate and heal,  which promotes collagen production.

What is Factor4?

Factor4 is a highly concentrated and super-rich serum containing 4 times more growth factors than any other brand Blood Rich Injection product.

Factor4 is autologous (harvested from the body’s own substances) and,  depending on the patient’s needs,  is used to reinvigorate skin quality and treat both wrinkles and crepiness in areas of the face, neck, décolletage, back of hands, dark eye circles, stretch marks and scars with bonus effects of a significant reduction in static face lines and tightening of the skin.

Can anyone have this treatment?

Skin Needling & Factor4 is suitable for all skin colours and ages. 

Which areas can be treated?

The following areas can be treated with skin needling and Factor 4 face, neck, décolletage, hands and any areas where stretch marks are present. This treatment can also treat dark eye circles, scars and can significantly reduce static lines and tightening of the skin.

Does it hurt and what is the downtime for this treatment?

We apply a topical numbing cream to the skin, which means you will feel minimal discomfort during the treatment.  After the treatment your skin will be red, for some they feel slightly sunburnt.  This will calm down in the following hours after treatment.  Factor4 also contains anti-inflammatory proteins reducing downtime.

How many treatments do I need?

A Series of 4 treatments, one to two weeks apart,  is the suggested treatment protocol for the most beautiful results.

When will I see the results?

Most patients see an improvement in their skin texture and clarity after a couple of weeks from the first treatment. The final result will be noticeable three to six months post treatment. This is because your skin will continue to regenerate and produce new collegen and elastin.
