If you are a man or woman who is experiencing hair loss, KeraLase™ may be the solution for you. Combining laser technology with growth factors and proteins, this device helps generate new hair growth and improve the health of your scalp. KeraLase is administered in a series of treatments performed by board-certified dermatologist Dr. Melda Isaac and staff in Washington, D.C.
What Is KeraLase?
KeraLase is a treatment that combines the Lutronic LaseMD Ultra® laser with high concentrations of five growth factors and proteins called KeraFactor® serum to help restore and maintain hair growth. During your treatment, the Lutronic LaseMD Ultra® laser treats your scalp by making small openings in the scalp, stimulating healing process. These uniform small breaks in the skin also open channels to the hair follicles, allowing better absorption of the growth factor packed Kerafactor serum. The treatment is painless. Dr Isaac recommends that the treatment be performed every two weeks for six treatment sessions to achieve best results.
KeraFactor® serum is a nutrient-rich mixture of proteins and growth factors that helps promote thicker, fuller hair growth for both men and women. This formula is specifically designed to target the issues that lead to hair loss and an unhealthy scalp.
Who Can Benefit from KeraLase?
KeraLase is a treatment designed to benefit men and women of all ages who are experiencing thinning hair and hair loss. This device can also treat patients who’ve previously undergone a hair transplant procedure. By applying growth factors and proteins directly into the scalp, existing and transplanted hair follicles absorb the serum and grow stronger over time.
KeraLase stimulates natural hair growth, which allows you to see improvements in your hair and scalp over time.
What Is a KeraLase Treatment Like?
For best results, we recommend coming to your treatment with a clean scalp, free of styling products like hairspray, mousse, gel, or dry shampoo. During the treatment, the LaseMD Ultra laser is applied to your scalp, allowing it to open tiny channels in the scalp that allow the KeraFactor® serum to be applied to the treated area. The treatment only takes about 10 minutes and is typically painless.
Unlike PRP, another popular treatment for hair loss, there is no need to have blood drawn or perform any injections into the treatment area. This allows KeraLase treatments to be painless and effective with no downtime. Results with KeraLase are also more predictable than PRP, and results are not affected if the patient is taking aspirin.
After treatment, you can immediately resume your daily activities. We ask that you do not wash your hair or swim for 24 hours after treatment to allow full penetration of the serum into the channels in the scalp. You may wear a hat or hair covering immediately after treatment, if desired.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
For best results, most patients undergo a treatment plan that consists of KeraLase treatments every two weeks for six sessions, followed by two to three follow-up treatments per year to maintain results. For best results, consistency is key. Dr. Isaac recommends taking vitamin supplements to support the treatments.
Individual results may vary. Dr. Isaac and her team will assess your needs and work with you to determine the best treatment plan for your needs and desired results. We recommend scheduling a follow-up evaluation after your first 6 sessions to determine a maintenance plan. While results are not guaranteed, most patients benefit from continued maintenance treatments every 3 months after the initial 6-session treatment.
When Will I See Results?
KeraLase patients begin to see improvements in their scalp health and hair growth within four to six weeks of their first treatment. Thanks to the hair stimulation effects of KeraLase, patients continue to see improvements in the appearance of their hair for 12 to 18 months following the initial series of treatments and continued maintenance.
