With masks covering a good portion of our face, it is a great time to turn our attention to our scalp health. Our scalp is not an area that we think about caring for, but it is imperative to nourish our scalp in order to have healthy hair. Especially during times of high stress (hello, 2020) our hair tends to fall out or stop growing like it used to. Along with the normal aging process, vitamin deficiencies, genetics, diet and more can lead to unwanted hair loss. This is where scalp PRP injections, Minoxidil, (a topical product that has been approved by the FDA to treat hair loss and help regrow hair) and our newest treatment, Keravive by HydraFacial, come into play.
Though not yet FDA approved for hair loss, PRP has been found to be an effective treatment for hair loss. PRP stands for platelet rich plasma, which we extract from a vial of your blood drawn in the clinic. PRP is full of growth factors from our own body that stimulates our hair to grow more and grow thicker. It is best done in a series of three, four weeks apart, for optimal results. Each treatment involves multiple injections into the scalp, so our office offers Pronox, which is like laughing gas, to help keep patients comfortable during treatment.
Our newest treatment Keravive is a first of its kind. It is a 3-step treatment that includes an in-office component, as well as a 30-day take-home spray. This in-office treatment involves a relaxing 30-minute session in which we cleanse and exfoliate a section of the scalp using HydraFacial’s Vortex Technology. The hand piece gently extracts dirt, oil and impurities from your scalp and hair follicles. The next step involves hydrating and nourishing the scalp using a Keravive Peptide Complex Solution. This exfoliates and nourishes your hair follicles with growth factors and skin proteins to promote a healthy scalp and healthier, fuller-looking hair. This treatment includes a daily take home product of the HydraFacial Keravive Peptide Complex Spray this enhances your in-office treatment and delivers daily hydration and nourishment to your scalp and hair follicles.
