HydraFacial Keravive – The Scalp Facial That Encourages New Hair Growth
The hair of your dreams starts with the skin that covers your head. Each hair grows from, and through, an individual follicle which surfaces on your scalp. Our hair follicles also produce sebum, the amount varying from person to person. For healthy hair, the follicle and the scalp must be kept clean, clear, healthy and maintained. Follicles that have a build-up of sebum or styling products or are blocked by dead skin cells or dandruff will have an enormous impact on the quality of our hair growth. So, how does the new HydraFacial Keravive treatment help to promote healthier, stronger hair and how does it differ from other scalp health treatments on the market?
How does the HydraFacial Keravive work?
The HydraFacial Keravive builds on the experience and technology of the HydraFacial, but with a unique focus on the health of the scalp. It uses patented vortex technology to extract dirt and oil from the scalp removing impurities from hair follicles while stimulating circulation. It then infuses the scalp with a proprietary blend of proteins and growth factors which are 30 times stronger than PRP and other scalp treatments.
It doesn’t end there – afterwards, you’ll receive an at-home treatment to help enhance the benefits further, stimulate cellular turnover and provide ongoing nourishment and stimulation.
What are the benefits of treatment?
The HydraFacial Keravive uses all of the implements of a high-quality medical-grade facial, but it delivers its benefits directly to the scalp. And if it were a facial, it wouldn’t just be any old facial – the Keravive is a deep exfoliating HydraFacial treatment specifically designed for maintaining scalp health to promote thicker, fuller and healthier looking hair.
It works by unclogging those all-important hair follicles, boosting circulation, removing dead skin cells and congestion all while delivering growth factors and proteins to hydrate the scalp and stimulate new hair growth.
Is it just for people already suffering from hair loss?
Stress, genetics, chemical processing, medical conditions and hormone fluctuations are all factors that can influence the health of our hair. While our hair cells are technically dead, the follicle through which the hair emerges is very much alive – yet the scalp undergoes a multitude of daily indignities, including heat styling, oils, environmental pollutants, silicones and chlorine. Bottom line: The health of our follicles plays a major role in the overall health of our hair. When we have a clean, well-functioning scalp, our hair will reflect that through better growth, shine and strength.
The Keravive is designed for anyone looking to improve their scalp health, and it’s particularly useful if you’re experiencing scalp irritation, itchiness, or dryness. But it’s also an excellent option for anyone experiencing conditions such as seborrheic dermatitis or hair loss.
How else can we promote scalp health?
When choosing hair products, we recommend avoiding ingredients that ‘block’ or suffocate the scalp. Check the label for ingredients ending in ‘cones’ – these are added to products to make the hair feel soft and silky, but they are molecularly heavy and will block the scalp and are best avoided. Mousses or hairsprays with high alcohol content are also worth avoiding as they can cause extreme dryness of the scalp.
In general, try to limit how often you use heat styling tools and when you do, use a good quality heat protecting product. Taking Zinc and Omega 3 supplements is also an excellent way to maintain healthy hair. Zinc plays an essential role in hair tissue growth and repair, while Omega 3 is a fatty acid which promotes stronger, thicker hair.
