It can be quite a shock when you realize your hair is thinning or receding. The anxiety over its cause, wondering how noticeable it is to others, and fear it’s going to get worse can be emotionally distressing. Thankfully, ZENA Medical’s Dr. Zenovia Gabriel has developed a thorough approach to treating hair loss, including Keralase™ laser hair restoration.
Laser hair restoration with Keralase™ is based on the idea that a healthy scalp can be a better, richer environment for growing hair and preserving the hair you have. It works by using the Lutronic LaseMD laser to create microscopic channels in the scalp, similar to how microneedling works.
Once the channels are in place, your ZENA Medical expert applies KeraFactor® serum, a proprietary blend of growth factors and stimulating proteins. With 5x greater absorption through the micro-channels, KeraFactor® increases blood supply and prompts hair in the dormant phase to enter the active growth phase.
There is also a take-home KeraFactor® spray patients are directed to use between laser treatments to optimize results and maintain an enriching scalp environment for hair growth. The at-home KeraFactor® spray contains the same growth factors and skin proteins, just in smaller concentrations than the in-office solution. KeraFactor® spray can reduce the number of maintenance treatments necessary to restore thick, healthy hair.
If your hair loss is determined to be caused by hormonal imbalance, environmental stressors, or physiological sources, Keralase™ laser hair restoration can help. Patients who are combating hair loss with treatments like minoxidil, prescription medications, topicals, platelet-rich plasma, or other laser therapy can combine those with Keralase™ laser hair restoration to enhance results. Patients prepping for FUE hair transplantation may also have Keralase™ treatments.
Keralase™ laser hair restoration treatments take around 20-30 minutes per session. You may experience a warm, tingling sensation during the laser portion of the treatment.
Then, your ZENA Medical expert massages KeraFactor® serum into your scalp, which is gentle and relaxing. Depending on your specific hair loss condition, Dr. Zena may recommend up to 6 in-office treatments scheduled every 2 weeks for best results.
The KeraFactor® serum takes around 15-20 minutes to dry, and you should give it around 1 hour to absorb before exposing your scalp to a heat source. We recommend not washing your hair for 6-12 hours after treatment. You may experience some redness, heat, and tingling in your scalp, but this resolves within 24 hours. There may be some mild swelling for 3-7 days.
Keralase™ laser hair restoration can bring about immediate results for a select few patients. On average, patients will notice thicker hair and less visible areas of their scalp at around 3-5 treatments. This hair growth will continue for a few weeks following your last treatment. Many patients choose to prolong their healthy hair and revitalize their scalp condition with a maintenance treatment every 1-3 months.
At ZENA Medical, we understand hair loss can be devastating. We also recognize there may be many factors contributing to hair loss, so every consultation for hair restoration begins with a thorough examination of your scalp’s condition and a detailed medical history to understand the source of your thinning hair. We may order blood tests to check hormone levels, or even a scalp biopsy if necessary. Once we determine the cause of your hair loss and the condition of your scalp, we will recommend a treatment plan that may include Keralase™ laser hair restoration or even a combination of treatments. Our goal is to help you bring back your lustrous locks and regain your confidence in how you look and feel.
