How It Works
The KeraFactor serum is a patent-pending formula that combines a specific set of seven bio-identical growth factors for scalp revitalization. These are typically deficient in the skin during times of hair loss or poor hair health. Created for increased absorption, these higher concentrations of growth factors provide needed nutrients to the hair follicles and improve scalp circulation.
By adding the use of the LaseMD Ultra energy-based device, the skin is prepared for the absorption of the serum by creating micro-columns of tissue in the epidermis and upper dermis of the scalp. This allows the product to penetrate deeper than if it were used alone. KeraLase can be used on both existing hair follicles and those that have been transplanted with hair transplant surgery.
What to Expect
Laser treatments at Q the Medical Spa are performed by nurses for optimal safety and results. Upon arrival for your first treatment, photos and a consent for treatment will be completed.
The Lutronic LaseMD Ultra will be used on the area of thinning hair, followed immediately by the application of the KeraFactor serum. Most treatments take less than 30 minutes to complete, depending on the size of the area being treated. While a warm or slight stinging sensation may be felt while the laser is applied to the scalp, most do not find it uncomfortable.
The treatment plan will be determined at your consultation appointment to ensure it is most beneficial for your personal needs, but generally a treatment session every two weeks for 12 weeks (6 total treatments) is recommended.
Recovery After KeraLase Treatments
Most patients experience little to no discomfort from the KeraLase treatment and downtime is minimal. After the treatment, you may notice hairs in the telogen (resting) phase being shed due to the laser, which is normal. Immediately following treatment, patients may experience mild redness or swelling. If it occurs, swelling will usually diminish after a few hours and redness by the next day or over the next few days.
Patients are able to return to their normal activities that same day, however the hair must not be washed for 24 hours after treatment to allow the product to fully penetrate. It is important to avoid sun exposure for a week before and after each treatment; wear a hat or sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30.
Results appear as scalp health improves and an increase in the appearance of thicker, healthier hair may be visible within three months, if treatment protocols are followed as prescribed. Most patients see even more improvement over the following 2-4 months. However, each individual is different and a result cannot be guaranteed for all patients. Your provider may also recommend maintenance treatments yearly.
