Barb’s Patient Journey Part 2

Barb, a Registered Nurse who is a certified aesthetic consultant and managing esthetician at Northcoast Laser Cosmetics in Mentor, OH, underwent the latest hair restoration treatment, Keralase, at the practice. While Barb isn’t the type who lets her thinning hair define her, she decided to undergo the treatment to see if it genuinely works and because she trusted the science behind it. Her results have been outstanding. Even her hairdressers have noticed and believe that it will be life-changing for the hair restoration industry.

As a member of the Northcoast Laser Cosmetics practice, it is in her best interest to provide their patients with the best possible knowledge about the treatments they offer. Barb, a Keralase patient, knows what future patients can expect from the treatment and what type of results they can expect.

This is her story.

Digging Deep to the Roots

Keralase is a treatment that involves creating micro-channels in the scalp with the LaseMD, which is a fractional non-ablative laser. The KeraFactor serum, a serum that contains growth factors that promote hair growth, is then introduced to the scalp. The treatment is essentially the same for anyone who undergoes it, which Barb is happy to explain to her patients.

“I did my whole head,” Barb says. “But patients can piece it out to whatever area is being affected. You sit on a stool, pretty much like you are getting your hair done, and they part your hair, and they run the laser five passes across, which creates a channel deep into the dermis where the hair follicle is. They’ll then apply the serum. Basically, they’re creating a channel and applying the serum within seconds of each other. The serum gets right down to the base of the hair follicle.”

After the Keralase treatment, aftercare instructions are provided to patients to ensure their results are a success.

“They don’t want you to wash your hair until the next day,” she says. “After you put the serum on, they want it to soak in and do its thing. Treatment remains the same every two weeks and takes approximately half an hour.”

Patients will gradually notice a difference in their hair but will need to give it some time until the results are a noticeable improvement, something that Barb experienced.

“After I finished, my hair was an unruly mess,” Barb says. “I was joking with my hairdresser because she had a challenge cutting it because it had a mind of its own. But I noticed that since things have settled down, and we’re guessing it’s because of the new hair growth that wasn’t long enough that I had all throughout my head. So my hair was kind of bonkers for a good month, and now I am starting to appreciate the results more.”

Keeping Realistic Expectations In Mind

Barb’s profession allows her to keep realistic expectations in mind, regardless of the treatment. With the Keralase treatment, she maintained her expectations. She urges patients of Northcoast Laser Cosmetics to do the same.

“This is the aesthetic nurse in me: we are trained to undersell and over-deliver. You’re not going from bald to Farrah Fawcett hair,” Barb says. “Now, is my hair fully grown? No, but is there improvement? Absolutely. The treatment worked, but it is very important to get across that you are not all of the sudden going to be a hair model.”

Keralase produces visible and reliable results. However, the treatment will not completely restore a patient’s hair, but, as Barb mentions, any improvement is significant.

“People with fine hair know all too well how hard it is to deal with,” she says. “Any kind of improvement is in the plus column. Am I happy? Yes, I’m happy. It’s a good scientifically-backed treatment. I experienced all of the results that they wrote.”

Northcoast Laser Cosmetics only utilizes the best treatments to ensure patients achieve results.

“We have a lot of integrity here at Northcoast Laser Cosmetics and bring in stuff that works,” she says. “That’s how we practice. I have been really impressed with the quality of my hair after my Keralase treatments. It does seem a lot better. It’s stronger. There’s more of it. It’s easier to deal with.”

Keralase – The New Hair Restoration Treatment Offered at Northcoast

Since Barb has finished her Keralase treatments, she has been impressed with her results and encourages others to try the treatment if it is a viable option for their unique concerns.

“There are some people that won’t be candidates for the treatment,” Barb says. “But if you are just like me, genetically predisposed to hair loss, you know as you get older the scalp does not produce hair like it used to, you know, part of the aging process.”

Barb’s Keralase hair restoration treatment has even made her life a little bit easier.

“It is more enjoyable to do my hair because I no longer need to move my part to camouflage a wider part,” she says. “I am personally satisfied. Although I consider myself a low-maintenance person, it is easier and nice to no longer fuss with my hair to get it decent-looking before work.”

Since her Keralase treatments, Barb has become more appreciative of the Northcoast Laser Cosmetics practice and is enthusiastic that the treatment will be beneficial for future patients.

“I like that we are able to offer something like this here – something that has a high probability for working,” Barb says. “Now, it’s not for everyone because everyone is an individual and has their own concerns. But here at Northcoast Laser Cosmetics, we pride ourselves on providing services that work. Being that hair restoration is a sketchy at best aesthetic treatment, I was very encouraged to see that Keralase worked.”
