Hair loss affects more than 100 million Americans every year. There are many treatment options on the market such as oral medication, topical solutions, hair transplants, and PRP. PRP injections have been extremely popular for hair loss treatment as they are considered more natural and have minimal side effects. Unfortunately, there is significant variability in results among PRP treatment for hair loss.
At South County Medspa & Wellness Center, we are excited to introduce a new treatment option! KeraFactor has recently teamed up with Lutronic’s LaseMD to develop a new treatment for hair loss known as KeraLase.
KeraLase is an in-office treatment that involves using LaseMD non-ablative lasers to create microchannels into the epidermis and upper dermis of your scalp without harming your skin. These microscopic channels are made at a specific wavelength and depth to allow for deeper penetration and maximum absorption of the KeraFactor scalp stimulating serum.
KeraFactor is a biomimetic synthetic concentrated blend of beneficial growth factors, proteins, and nanoliposome coating to assist in scalp penetration. This serum increases blood supply and supports healthy hair rejuvenation and restoration enhancing the growth phase of hair.
There is no need for a blood draw or any needles used with KeraLase unlike PRP hair loss treatments. KeraLase is considered minimally invasive, is performed without any anesthetic, and has no downtime or restrictions following treatment. It is a safe and effective treatment option for both men and women of all skin types.
Prior to treatment, your scalp will be cleansed by one of our techniques to ensure no hair products or buildup impede the process. Protective eyewear is required for both patient and staff safety during treatment.
The treatment begins with the laser portion going over areas of hair loss, hair thinning, or areas where there may not be as much hair to improve the entire scalp’s health. The lasers create microchannels to assist in scalp penetration. This process takes an average of 10 minutes. During this time patients may feel a little warmth or a slight prickling sensation but should not feel any pain or discomfort. After completing the laser portion of treatment, our staff will massage the KeraFactor serum into the scalp and request you reset for a few minutes to ensure absorption.
As mentioned above, there is no downtime required for this procedure. Immediately following treatment patients are allowed to return to work, wear a hat, resume normal activities, and even work out if they wish. We do recommend that patients do not wash their hair until the following day for maximum absorption.
Treatment usually consists of 6 sessions scheduled every 2-4 weeks over a period of 3-6 months depending on individual client results. Though results may vary from patient to patient, most patients experience an overall improvement in scalp health and an increase in thicker and healthier hair within the first few months of treatment. Results will continue to improve over the course of several months.
If you struggle with hair loss, thinning hair, adult-pattern baldness, or alopecia, KeraLase may be the right treatment option for you. For more information on KeraLase treatment for hair loss or to schedule a consultation, please contact our office today at (409) 847-4200.
