Fractional resurfacing, when used as a delivery method for growth factors into the scalp, is a treatment aimed at promoting hair growth and improving the overall condition of the scalp. Fractional resurfacing is a procedure that utilizes laser technology to create microscopic channels in the skin. These channels stimulate the body’s natural healing response and enhance the absorption and efficacy of growth factors applied topically to the scalp. We utilize the Kerafactor system to perform the treatment, called Keralase MD.
During the treatment, the fractional laser creates controlled micro-injuries in the scalp, triggering the production of collagen and elastin. This process helps to improve blood circulation, increase nutrient delivery to the hair follicles, and stimulate the growth of new hair. Additionally, the micro-channels created by the laser facilitate the penetration of growth factors into the deeper layers of the scalp, where they can exert their beneficial effects.
The delivery of growth factors into the scalp using fractional resurfacing is particularly beneficial for individuals experiencing hair loss or thinning due to various factors such as aging, hormonal changes, or genetic predisposition. The growth factors used in the treatment are typically derived from the patient’s own blood or obtained from specialized medical formulations. These growth factors promote hair follicle stimulation, improve the health of existing hair, and encourage the growth of new hair strands.
This treatment option is considered non-invasive and well-tolerated, with minimal discomfort and downtime. It can be customized based on the individual’s specific needs and can be combined with other hair restoration techniques for enhanced results. By utilizing fractional resurfacing as a delivery method, the growth factors can be targeted precisely to the areas of concern, maximizing their effectiveness and promoting optimal hair growth.
