What Is Keravive™?
Your scalp needs care just like any other part of the body. Haircare products, dirt, sebum, and even water can cause buildup in the scalp's pores. This blocks healthy oils from traveling down the hair shaft while congesting the hair at the root. Not only does this cause the hair to be dry and lackluster, but it can also inhibit hair growth. If you suffer from dry hair, a loss of hair fullness and length, or an itchy, flaky scalp, Keravive™ treatments can help purify and restore lost moisture.
This three-part system includes:
- Purify: Stimulates and opens hair follicles using light suction and exfoliation
- Nourish: Infuses the purified hair follicles and surrounding skin with peptides and hydrating serums
- Boost: Support natural hair growth with daily peptide spray
Like the hydrating and exfoliating process of the original HydraFacial®, Keravive™ sessions remove impurities in the scalp before replenishing nutrients and moisture for a truly clean and healthy scalp–leaving your hair feeling even better than a trip to the salon.
What Are the Benefits of Keravive™?
A congested scalp blocks the hair follicles from absorbing hair products and natural hair growth. No amount of care to the hair shaft can help the quality of your hair if the roots and follicles are not clean and nourished. Keravive™ can:
- Increase hydration
- Reduce clogged pores
- Remove dead skin buildup and congestion
- Increase circulation for better growth
- Soothe dryness, flakiness, and irritation
- Prompt natural hair growth by optimizing scalp conditions
In addition to all the above benefits, the Keravive™ treatment is truly a luxurious experience. You will leave your session feeling clean, refreshed, and reinvigorated.
How Is Keravive™ Performed?
In a 30-60 minute session, your Keravive™ provider will gently pass the device across the scalp, moving through the three modalities for a comprehensive experience.
First, the Keravive™ device will purify the scalp of dead skin cells, excess oil, dirt, and hair products clogging the pores. Next, your provider will help restore lost moisture by administering peptides and crucial nutrients directly into the cleansed scalp. By removing excess dirt, sebum, and skin cells, the skin absorbs the conditioning products more effectively. Lastly, your provider will spray the Keravive™ daily peptide spray throughout the hair and scalp, gently massaging it into the skin.
After your session, you will be given a bottle of the Keravive™ daily peptide spray to apply at home to continually provide your hair with growth factors and nutrients to make this treatment last.
Are There Risks and Complications with Keravive™?
Keravive™ treatments are gentle and safe for all scalp and hair types, including braids, extensions, locks, and color-treated hair. There are very few if any, side effects associated with Keravive™ treatments; in rare cases, patients may experience some irritation or redness that will subside on its own.
Is There Downtime After a Keravive™ Treatment?
There is no downtime associated with Keravive™ treatments. Due to the ease and comfort of this treatment, many patients can schedule their sessions during their lunch breaks or at any convenient time.
After your appointment, your hair should dry naturally to enable the nourishing peptides to soak in, and you should wait at least 6 hours to rewash your hair. Following treatment, you should apply the at-home peptide spray once daily to extend the benefits of the treatment.
When Will I See My Keravive™ Results?
Immediately following your Keravive™ treatments, your scalp and hair will feel incredibly clean and refreshed. Some patients will notice increased hair fullness and shine after just one treatment.
For best results, Keravive™ treatments should be repeated. In most cases, three treatments over three months are ideal, with at-home scalp treatments in between. With adequate treatment, Keravive™ restores the scalp’s pH balance to healthy levels, clears out debris and sebum that clogs pores, and allows healthy natural oils to extend to the length of hair. This treatment keeps the scalp clean and healthy, creating the optimum natural hair growth environment.
