What is Keralase?
One of the key functions of the skin is to protect the interior of the body from toxins, injury, etc. The nanoliposomes that encapsulate KeraFactor growth factors increase absorption into the skin – nonetheless, the skin resists penetration of the product.
Lutronic’s LaseMD and LaseMD Ultra prepare the skin for increased absorption by creating micro-columns of tissue in the epidermis and upper dermis of the scalp through a 5-10 minute treatment with little-to-no discomfort or downtime, allowing the product to penetrate much deeper than using the product alone. In addition to increasing the skin’s absorption of the KeraFactor formula, LaseMD and LaseMD Ultra provide independent skin treatment – why not enjoy the benefits of both?
What can Keralase do for me?
While everyone is different, improvement in scalp health and an increase in the appearance of thicker, healthier hair may be visible within 3 months when following the treatment protocol as prescribed. Most patients see even more improvement over the next 2-4 months.
We typically recommend 6 total sessions with 1-2 maintenance treatments per year.
How does kerafactor differ from using PRP?
PRP, or Platelet-Rich-Plasma, is a painful, 45-minute procedure where blood is drawn from the patient, spun in a centrifuge to increase the patient’s platelets, then applied or injected into the scalp with inconsistent results. Only the growth factors available in the patient’s own blood will be released. If a patient is highly deficient in any of the growth factors needed for hair health, the PRP procedure may not be effective.
Additionally, one of the common growth factors found in blood may block the transition of hair follicles into the new growth phase, actually inhibiting new growth. In contrast, KeraFactor products include a proprietary formula with high concentrations of bio-identical growth factors and skin proteins customized for people with thinning hair.
