If your hair is looking thin and brittle, the problem might not be with the hair shaft or follicles themselves. An unhealthy scalp can prevent hair growth while blocking key nutrients for thicker, stronger hair. For many of our patients, a Hydrafacial™ Keravive™ treatment that targets your scalp can help make their hair look and feel healthier.
If you have noticed a change in your hair (or simply wish it were thicker) don’t hesitate to reach out to the BUDDIGA Skin Aesthetics Med Spa specialists. Dr. Praveen Buddiga is a leading immunology expert and highly sought-after medical professional across Central California. He can evaluate your scalp and answer any questions you have about Hydrafacial™ Keravive™.
Here’s what you need to know about Hydrafacial Keravive – a first-of-its-kind treatment – before you arrive at Dr. Buddiga’s Fresno office.
Hydrafacial Keravive has been described as a facial for your scalp because the technology that is used is similar to that of professional facials and the goals are also the same: cleansing, hydrating, and protecting the skin.
What makes this treatment the first of its kind? Hydrafacial Keravive uses a patented vortex-fusion delivery system that targets your skin. The spiral design of the HydroPeel® Tips and the serums used take a multi-pronged approach to your scalp health. With these tools, Dr. Buddiga will be able to:
The steps for treatment are simple, but the results last. With the help of medical-grade devices, Dr. Buddiga can provide an enduring scalp treatment that lasts much longer than a salon appointment, because he is getting to the root of your hair problems.
Almost anyone can benefit from giving their scalp a little extra care. Oftentimes, people focus on the skin on their faces because it is the most noticeable – no one wants to wake up with a pimple on their wedding day or a patch of dry skin before a job interview! However, your scalp can also get irritated in much the same way your face does.
Dirt, sweat, and harsh shampoos can clog up the pores on your scalp, which can lead you to experience scalp breakouts, redness, and irritation. This leaves you feeling itchy and potentially damaging your hair follicles through scratching and overbrushing.
The Hydrafacial Keravive treatment works to cleanse your scalp and clean the dirt out of your pores, so your skin can feel and appear less irritated and your hair can grow out to its fullest, healthiest length.
In particular, we recommend seeking out Hydrafacial Keravive treatment if you experience severe irritation and dryness in your scalp. The treatment is safe if you are experiencing seborrhoeic dermatitis, hair loss, and other conditions – just make sure you tell Dr. Buddiga about these conditions before starting treatment.
The first step toward scalp health is to make an appointment with Dr. Buddiga. His staff will welcome you into the office and take every step to ensure you feel comfortable. During your appointment, Dr. Buddiga will ask how you feel about your hair and if there are any target areas you want to focus on. He will also inspect your scalp himself.
Dr. Buddiga’s extensive expertise and leadership in allergy and immunology include rotations at some of the world’s best programs for skin health. He understands that your skin needs to be healthy for it to look good. Your scalp is part of your Immune Firewall® and, if your hair is thin, there is likely a treatment to help it.
Once you and Dr. Buddiga discuss a treatment plan, he can move forward with the three-step Hydrafacial Keravive process. Two of these steps involve in-office treatment. The HydroPeel Tips cleanse the skin and remove dirt and debris. This treatment isn’t painful – in fact, many patients feel relaxed during their appointments and equate the experience to a scalp massage.
The doctor will move the HydroPeel Tips through different sections of your scalp while paying close attention to your hairline. You may feel like your hair is wet after the experience because of the powerful moisturizers.
The third step to complete your Hydrafacial Keravive treatment is done at home. Dr. Buddiga will send you home with a bottle of Keravive peptide complex spray, which you will use on your hair once a day in-between treatments.
Within the first visit to the office, you should start to notice an improvement in how your scalp feels. However, keeping up with your daily peptide spray will maximize your scalp health.
Dr. Buddiga recommends receiving Hydrafacial Keravive treatment once a month for three consecutive months. During this time, he can track the health of your scalp to make sure the treatment is working. These multiple treatments allow the aesthetician to remove buildup on your scalp and continue moisturizing the skin on your head.
Once you complete the treatment, you can enjoy your fuller head of hair and healthier scalp for several months. Some patients return every six to nine months for another course of treatment, while others wait longer between visits.
Everyone’s scalp is different. Some people are more prone to clogged pores and buildup than others. You may need to adjust your treatment plan based on your own particular skin.
You don’t have to prepare ahead of time for your Hydrafacial Keravive treatment. Many patients are able to walk right into the office to meet with Dr. Buddiga and receive their scalp care. However, it is highly recommended that you arrive with clean, product-free hair.
Be sure to mention if you have recently received a hair treatment (like a dye or a perm) but this likely won’t affect your ability to enjoy a clean scalp.
After the treatment, your hair might look like you recently got out of the shower. However, there is minimal aftercare for patients seeking Hydrafacial Keravive treatment. Follow the directions for gently massaging the daily peptide spray into your scalp and continue using the product until your next appointment.
You shouldn’t experience any sensitivity or pain as a result of treatment. If your scalp hurts during or after treatment, please reach out to Dr. Buddiga and he can work with you on alternative options.
