What is KeraFactor?
KeraFactor is a formula that combines bio-identical polypeptides for scalp rejuvenation. It is a potent anti-inflammatory and anti-androgenic compound, consisting of high concentrations of growth factors important for hair health.
How does KeraFactor differ from using PRP
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is a 30-60 minute procedure where blood drawn from the patient is spun in a centrifuge to increase the patient’s platelets and then applied or injected into the scalp. Results can be inconsistent as the growth factors available are already in the patient’s blood. If a patient is highly deficient in one of many growth factors needed for hair health, the PRP procedure may not be effective. Additionally, one of the typical growth factors found in blood, TGF b1, may block hair follicles’ transition into the anagen (new growth) phase.
How do we create optimal absorption?
The Lutronic LaseMD Ultra is used to create micro channels in the scalp, then the KeraFactor is applied. topically This treatment takes as little as 10 minutes, and has little to no discomfort and no downtime. One study shoes the enhanced absorption of nano-liposomes is five times higher because of the sponge-like micro columns unique properties. Absorption of the KeraFactor Serum helps to promote denser, thicker and fuller skin, and conditions the skin for a healthy-looking scalp.

- One treatment session every two to four weeks for 12 to 24 weeks (6 total treatments).
- One treatment session every month for 3-6 months (3-6 total treatments), AND participants should apply KeraFactor Solution and shampoo at home each day in between treatments.
What happens when a patient stops using KeraFactor Serum?
There are no long term studies, but anecdotal evidence suggest patients may maintain results for up to 12 months.
In clinic maintenance is recommended every 3-6 months. It is recommended to use the take-home Solution and Shampoo to maintain results.
What should patients expect?
While everyone is different, improvement in viable scalp, skin and an increase in hair’s thicker appearance may be visible within 2-3 months.
