Global Hair Restoration

Thinning hair is a concern for many people in the United States. You may think that only men have to worry about thinning hair, but that’s not the case — women can often experience more hair-thinning issues than men. 

At Global Center for Hair Restoration, we offer hair thinning treatment for men and women that involves minimally invasive lasers and hair serums in a procedure called KeraLase. Learn more about why hair begins to thin and one of the best hair-thinning solutions available.

Why Thinning Hair Occurs: Causes and More

One of the first things you should know about thinning hair is that it does not necessarily lead to hair loss. As soon as people start noticing that their hair is not as thick as it used to be, they immediately assume they will begin losing it. Hair loss can happen, of course, but not all thinning hair will fall out. 

Thinning hair can have many causes, including:

Stress and nutritional deficiencies are two very common causes of hair thinning. Your hair needs iron, folic acid, and other minerals and vitamins, so checking your diet for these deficiencies can give you an idea of whether that is the cause. 

Stress leads to an increase in the hormone cortisol. Too much of this hormone can trigger telogen effluvium (hair loss) while also putting the rest of your hair in a resting phase, where it doesn’t continue to grow. Other causes of thinning hair include:

At our center for hair restoration, we offer KeraLase, a hair-thinning treatment for women and men. 

KeraLase: Combining LaseMD Ultra With KeraFactor Serum

One of our most trusted hair-thinning solutions is KeraLase. This treatment option combines laser therapy to help your scalp absorb a hair-thickening serum more efficiently. 

LaseMD Ultra is a device most people know for its ability to stimulate collagen production when used for facial rejuvenation. When we use it as part of our hair thinning treatment for women and men, the laser makes your scalp better able to absorb the KeraFactor serum. 

The laser makes microchannels in your scalp, and then we apply the serum and gently massage it into your scalp. The KeraFactor Serum is made up of a high concentration of growth factors and proteins, all of which target hair in all stages of its life cycle, promoting hair growth. 

One of the best things about this thinning hair treatment is that the KeraFactor Serum contains nanoliposomes, which make it appropriate even for sensitive skin. To be a good candidate for this hair-thinning treatment, you must be in good overall health and not have untreated medical conditions. 

Benefits of KeraLase Hair Restoration Treatment

Unlike other hair restoration treatment options, KeraLase does not require a long recovery process. This minimally-invasive option requires that you keep the serum on for a day and then wash it off. That’s it. You can go about the rest of your day without a problem. 

Not only do the growth factors in the serum help your hair, but they can also promote scalp health. Your scalp requires the right nutrients, as the rest of your skin does, and the serum can provide them. It is also a quick hair-thinning treatment for men and women. You don’t have to spend hours at our offices to get results you can depend on. 

Preparing for KeraLase Hair Thinning Solutions: Our Process 

If you have thinning hair, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with us. During this consultation, we will examine your scalp and hair and ask you about your health. Tell us about your medical history and any medications you take, as well as any other hair treatment procedures you have undergone. If we think you are a good candidate for thinning hair treatment, we will schedule your first session. 

The night before your appointment, we ask that you wash your hair with plain shampoo. Don’t use conditioners, gels, mousses, or any other products. For the procedure, we need your hair to be clean and dry. 

A week before the treatment session, you will need to limit sun exposure. If you have to go outside in the sun, wear a hat. You also need to stop using topical steroids one week before treatment. If you take vitamins or supplements for hair loss, you can usually continue using them. 

On the day of the procedure, we will identify the right treatment area and use the laser to create the microchannels on your scalp. We will then apply the serum to your scalp and massage it in. The entire procedure can take as little as 30 minutes.

KeraLase Results: What to Expect from this Hair Restoration Treatment

You will want to stay out of the sun for a few more days after the procedure, but there isn’t much else you have to worry about. You may want to avoid showering for 24 hours to give the serum time to settle in. 

You can start seeing results as soon as two to four weeks after receiving the treatment. For most people, we recommend a series of six treatments spaced two to four weeks apart.
