Lutronic Ultra Laser Keralase Hair Restoration

KeralaseTM is a procedure that is used to treat hair loss and the problem of thinning hair. It is a proprietary treatment technique from Lutronic Aesthetic. It involves the use of a unique serum containing growth factors along with laser treatment. It creates micro-channels in the scalp region. This facilitates the effective growth of hair.

Why opt for Keralase?

Hair loss is a serious problem that can affect a person’s aesthetic appearance. It is estimated that 100 million Americans suffer from hair loss. There are many types of treatment for hair loss and they offer mixed results. One of the popular treatments is PRP or Platelet-rich plasma. This is injected to promote hair growth. The problem with PRP is it requires multiple injections on the scalp that can be painful. The results also vary.
Keralase uses the growth factors present in PRP and has enhanced them to use in its KeraFactor serum. This makes it more potent plus there are no painful injections. The ultra laser is used to create micro-channels in the scalp. Utilizing this technique helps to enhance the effectiveness the Kerafactor serum has on the applied area.
Studies indicate that the Lutronic Ultra Laser can help improve hair thickness by 77%.

How does it work?

The Kerafactor Serum contains hair growth factors that are in the form of nanoparticles, so it can easily be absorbed into the scalp and stimulate hair growth. It is composed of peptides that are 1000 times more potent than platelets. It is a highly effective serum that’s safe to use without the discomfort associated with other hair restoration techniques.

Treatment: Before, During, and After

Before undergoing the Lutronic Ultra Laser treatment, patients should make sure to come without using any hair styling products. The hair should be dry so the laser can work with maximum effectiveness.
The procedure is a very simple one. It takes less than 30 minutes to complete. There is no pain when the laser is used to create the microchannels. Many patients liken the experience to a warm and tingling sensation. The Kerafactor serum is then massaged into the scalp.
Specific treatments vary from patient to patient, depending on their individual needs. Multiple treatment sessions are required to achieve the best results. Usually, six such treatment sessions would be needed (can vary from case to case). A two-week interval between each treatment cycle is followed.
Once a treatment session is complete, the patient can freely return to their normal daily activities. A hairdryer should not be used at least for an hour after the session. Hair products can be used but the hair should not be washed for at least 12 hours.
Patients are given a spray to take home after the treatment. This spray needs to be used daily on the treated area. After spraying, a one-minute massage is needed to spread it through the scalp. Patients undergoing the treatment can expect to see visible results within one to two months.
