Factor 4 / PRP, or better known as “The Vampire Facial”, is the highly concentrated and super-rich blood plasma treatment that contains four times more growth factors than any brand blood-rich injection product / treatment available on the market. The treatment is a relatively gentle & straight forward procedure when performed by the experienced and highly trained Aspire Medispa staff. Remember, individual results may vary.
What is Factor 4 / PRP?
Factor 4 / PRP is a treatment that involved the extraction of four 10mL tubes of blood (which is less than what is taken when you give blood at the doctors surgery), processing this through a filtration system and extracting the super-rich plasma, which is then applied to the treatment areas.
Does it hurt?
A topical numbing cream will be applied for about 45 minutes prior to the application of the plasma, this means that regardless of what application method is chosen, we will ensure that the experience is as comfortable as possible.
What areas can be treated with Factor 4 / PRP?
This treatment method is used to treat a wide range of skin concerns such as scarring, fine lines, crepey skin, sagging skin, stretch marks, wrinkly knees, décolletage, full face and many, many more.
Can anyone be treated?
Unfortunately, no. People with skin diseases (such as porphyria & skin allergies), abnormal platelet function (i.e. blood disorders), chain-smokers & alcoholics are recommended against having the treatment.
Is there any downtime I should know about?
Skin redness, bruising and / or swelling can persist for up to 24 hours – and occasionally this may last up to two days. We recommend to leave your skin application free (including face creams, make-up etc.) for a minimum of 12 hours, and to limit your physical activities in order to avoid sweating or to decrease the chances of swelling and / or bruising.
When will I see results?
Most clients will require 3-4 treatments, and they are usually performed at 3-6 weekly intervals.
Results will be visible at three weeks, but they will also improve gradually over the following months with improvement in texture & tone of the skin visible around 6 months post-treatment.
How much does it cost?
Prices will be assessed at your initial consultation with our Doctor – our prices take into consideration your requirements, your budget and the result you desire. Our Doctor will then formulate a treatment plan for you, which will outline your treatment costs.
