KeraLase in West Hartford, CT
TRUST THE SCIENCE. LOVE THE RESULTS.
HOW KERALASE WORKS TO RESTORE YOUR HAIR
KeraLase is an innovative treatment from Lutronic, a highly regarded aesthetic technology company, that combines two effective therapies into one treatment for incredible results:
- Lutronic Ultra laser treatment
- KeraFactor® serum application
First, the Lutronic Ultra laser is applied all over your scalp to help optimize your scalp’s absorption properties. This is done first as a pre-conditioning treatment because your skin is designed by nature to keep things out, rather than letting them in; the Ultra helps prepare your skin for the second component of the treatment, KeraFactor® hair growth serum, by opening up the channels of the hair follicles so they are better able to absorb the serum. After the Ultra treatment is complete, which takes about five minutes, the KeraFactor serum is topically applied to your scalp, to help promote thicker, stronger, and fuller hair in both women and men. The KeraFactor serum consists of high concentrations of five growth factors and two types of skin proteins, which are formulated to target the issues that can lead to hair loss and an unhealthy scalp. Nanoliposomes are used to optimally deliver the proteins and growth factors after your scalp has been conditioned with the Ultra laser, which has been shown to increase absorption of these particles.
KeraLase is extremely versatile—it can be used on both women and men, and on all types of skin and hair. It is important to be aware that it will not work for scarring alopecia, so Dr. Beausoleil will first evaluate and diagnose the reason for your hair loss before recommending the best treatment approach.
WHAT TO EXPECT DURING AND AFTER KERALASE TREATMENT
Patients love KeraLase hair restoration therapy for many reasons. The first is that the treatment is comfortable and painless – it does not involve any injections or blood draws, and you do not need to ingest any medications. It is also fast, only taking about 20 minutes or less per treatment session. After your treatment is complete, you can immediately resume your normal daily routine with no downtime.
Kerafactor is the proprietary serum used in the Keralase treatments and has concentrated the beneficial growth factors found in PRP by 50-2000%. The inhibitory growth factors are eliminated from KeraFactor as well. The growth factors are biomimetic and wrapped with a nanoliposome coating to assist in scalp penetration. To further enhance scalp absorption, Lutronic Ultra is used to create channels to enhance the Kerafactor by 5-7x.
A series of 6 treatments done in 2 week intervals is recommended. The entire procedure takes 20 minutes. A study has shown hair thickness improves an average of 77%. There is no discomfort during and after the procedure and absolutely no downtime.
KeraLase offers a unique treatment for hair loss with less pain, less treatment time, and more predictable results when compared to PRP hair treatments.
Hair loss may also be related to the health or functionality of hair follicles. If a hair follicle is permanently damaged, there may be a lower chance of successfully achieving hair regrowth.
Based on 6 years of extensive research to address thinning hair, this patent-pending formula combines a very specific set of 7 bioidentical growth factors for scalp revitalization, wrapped in a “shell” for increased absorption, that are typically deficient in skin during times of hair loss or poor hair health. Other topical products include only a few growth factors and no other commercially available topical includes the complete set included in the KeraFactor formula, a proprietary and patented technology that allows for significantly higher concentrations of each growth factor.
Growth factors include polypeptides and proteins that stimulate the growth of specific tissues, such as hair follicles, blood vessels, etc. As cells naturally age and die, these nutrients are necessary to assist in the process of replacing old cells with new ones.
Initial research showed that most people with thinning hair are deficient in certain key growth factors, which KeraFactor contains. Additionally, these people may also have too many other growth factors that actually inhibit the growth associated with hair and scalp health and therefore, KeraFactor does not contain these potentially growth-inhibiting factors. Through a proprietary and patented manufacturing process, all 7 growth factors are able to be synthesized in high concentrations,resulting in the KeraFactor formula – the only family of products that includes all of these 7 growth factors and each in high concentration.
While everyone is different, improvement in scalp health and an increase in the appearance of thicker, healthier hair may be visible within 3 months when patients follow the treatment protocol as prescribed. Most patients see even more improvement over the next 2-4 months. We cannot guarantee a response for ALL patients.
One of the key functions of the skin is to protect the interior of the body from toxins, injury, etc. Lutronic’s Ultra prepares the skin for increased absorption by creating micro-columns of tissue in the epidermis and upper dermis of the scalp through a 5-10 minute treatment with little-to-no discomfort or downtime, allowing the product to penetrate much deeper than using the product alone.
The KeraFactor formula provides nutrients to the hair follicles and improved scalp circulation for natural-looking, healthy hair. Transplanted hair follicles will benefit from absorption of growth factors and skin proteins in the same manner as existing hair follicles.
PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) VS. KeraLase (KeraFactor + LaseMD Ultra)
45 minute procedure
PRP is Platelet-Rich Plasma, and it entails drawing your blood, spinning that blood down in a high-speed centrifuge, concentrating the platelet portion of the serum (platelet-rich plasma) and then injecting this into the areas of hair loss.
Only the growth factors available in the patient’s own blood will be released. If a patient is highly deficient in any of the growth factors needed for hair health, the PRP procedure may not be effective.
Additionally, one of the common growth factors found in blood may block the transition of hair follicles into the new growth phase, actually inhibiting growth.
Platelet-rich plasma injections may not be appropriate for a patient who:
- Has a medical condition that could worsen or spread with injections, such as an active infection, a metastatic disease, or certain skin diseases
- Has certain blood and bleeding disorders
- Is undergoing anticoagulation therapy (and cannot temporarily suspend treatment)
- Is anemic
- Is pregnant
Possible risk of infection at the injection site.
injury to blood vessels or nerves
15 minutes or less procedure
There is no blood draw and there is no pincushion needle-poking like with PRP. We facilitate complete penetration by using the LaseMD system to create small penetrations in the skin of the scalp for even better distribution of the KeraFactor Serum.
KeraFactor products include a formula with high concentrations of 7 different bioidentical growth factors and skin proteins customized for people with thinning hair.
There are no known interactions with any drugs, vitamins or supplements.
Short-term immediate risks include:
- Redness at the area being treated, although usually this dissipates within 24 hours.
- Heat and tingling sensations may occur up to a few hours after the treatment, but normally do not last longer. Swelling can also occur and could last for 3-7 days.
There are no sulfates, parabens, BHA, BHT, or DBP in the solutions used with this treatment
Hair loss is completely normal and common in most men and women!
Hair shedding is a part of everyday life! Although you might clog your shower drain or leave hair confetti everywhere, the fact is, hair loss is completely normal and common in most men and women!
- On average we lose around 80 strands of hair a day
- Each hair follicle on our scalp undergoes three stages of its own lifecycle: Anagen – active growing phase that lasts about 2-7 years making the hair grow long and thick. Catagen – hair follicle moves into the transitional stage when the hair fibre stops growing leading us to the final stage: Telogen – old hair is gradually pushed up towards the skin surface which causes the hair to shed naturally. The cycle continues repeatedly throughout our lifetime.
- 1 in 3 women will suffer from hair loss or reduced hair volume at some point in their lifetime
- Genetic Hair loss – genetically predisposed to hair thinning. Certain hair follicles are sensitive to certain hormones we produce causing the follicle to shrink and grow thinner
- Reactive Hair Loss – hair loss which results from an internal imbalance such as being upset, nutritional deficiencies, severe stress, crash dieting or illness
- Hormonal imbalances/ changes such as pregnancy, PCOS, iron deficiency/anemia, hyper and hypothyroidism, Vitamin b12 deficiency, dramatic weight loss, age, alopecia, and diet are all contributing factors to hair loss.
- KeraFactor, a unique serum unlike PRP that safely absorbs into the scalp to promote stronger, thicker, and fuller looking hair in both men and women.

Hair Loss Information
If you are looking for ways to improve thinning hair, boost lost volume, or restore a more youthful hairline, you are not alone. Unwanted hair loss affects an estimated one in five Americans, and it does not just affect men or those who are older. In fact, up to 20 percent of people with hair loss are under the age of 30, and both men and women can suffer from it.Treatments include oral and topical medications, PRP, and hair transplants. PRP injections have become extremely popular because they are considered “natural” with minimal side effects. Unfortunately, there is huge variability amongst PRP devices leading to concentrations of 2-6x physiologic concentrations. There are inhibitory growth factors in PRP that limit the use of higher concentrations thereby decreasing the effectiveness of PRP treatments. At GET TIGHT Spa in West Hartford, CT, we offer a variety of treatments to help restore healthy hair volume and growth, including the revolutionary new KeraLase™ hair restoration therapy.
