From hair thinning to a receding hairline, as we get older we notice our hair isn’t what it once was. Ksenia Lavrentieva visits Dr Preema for a Hydrafacial Keravive treatment that promotes scalp health and thicker looking hair
As we age, we experience countless changes in our lives, one of which is the gradual thinning of our hair.
For many people, this is a source of concern and frustration, leading them to look for ways to restore their hair’s fullness and vitality. Fortunately, there is a new treatment available that can help to combat hair loss and promote healthy hair growth – Keravive.
More than 40 million women and 60 million men struggle with thinning hair or a receding hairline, according to the American Hair Loss Association, and experience a loss of confidence with this condition.
I too, have noticed gradual hair thinning, it seemed like the older I got, the less hair I had!

I did some research myself into what could be causing my hair loss – there were lots of potential causes such as, excessive washing, drying, heat styling devices and a multitude of hair styling products, which can lead to poor scalp health and a number of conditions ranging from product build up and a dry flaky scalp to hair damage.
I began on my journey of using less heat on my hair, always using a heat protectant and not washing my hair as regularly – I saw some improvement in the way my hair felt, but the hair thinning was still happening.
My confidence really began to deteriorate so I researched further and came across Hydrafacial™ Keravive™ for Scalp Health.

What is Hydrafacial™ Keravive™?
Keravive is a revolutionary hair growth procedure that uses a combination of cutting-edge technologies to rejuvenate and fortify the scalp. It is based on the principle that healthy hair growth starts with a healthy scalp, and that by restoring the scalp’s natural balance, we can promote the growth of thicker, stronger hair.
This professional treatment course consists of three treatments booked one month apart to deep cleanse, stimulate scalp circulation and deliver a proprietary blend of five growth factors and two skin proteins encased in nano-liposomes.
healthy hair growth starts with a healthy scalp
Small enough to penetrate tiny hair follicles, the formulation is also combined in a home use complex to be applied daily, to continue nourishing the scalp between treatments and up to 90 days after your final clinic treatment.
The New HydraFacial™ Keravive™ treatment restores scalp health with Vortex technology and NEW Scalp Health Peptide Complex in three easy steps:
- STEP 1: Cleanse and Exfoliate – Cleanses, exfoliates and delivers growth factors and skin proteins
- STEP 2: Stimulate and Nourish- Nourishes and stimulates scalp to promote thicker, healthier-looking hair
- STEP 3: Extend and Enhance – Complements oral, topical, laser and surgical hair loss treatments
The Keravive treatment process begins with a thorough scalp analysis, followed by a gentle exfoliation, which removes dead skin cells and unclogs hair follicles, preparing the scalp for the next stage of the treatment.

The next step is the application of a specially-formulated serum, which contains a unique blend of vitamins, minerals, and other nourishing ingredients. This serum is designed to penetrate deep into the scalp, where it can provide vital nutrients and stimulate hair growth.
Finally, the Keravive treatment is completed with the use of a low-level laser therapy device, which emits a gentle, non-invasive light that helps to promote blood flow and circulation to the scalp. This helps to stimulate the growth of new hair, while also strengthening and fortifying existing hair.

The Science behind it…
The HydraFacial™ Vortex Technology and Keravive™ Peptide Complex Solution cleanses, exfoliates, stimulates, and delivers a proprietary blend of growth factors and skin proteins to hydrate, nourish and stimulate the scalp.
Containing ingredients up to 200 times more concentrated than other types of scalp health treatments, the Keravive™ proprietary serum targets every aspect of scalp and follicle health.
KeraviveTM Peptide Complex’s proprietary blend of five growth factors and two skin proteins includes key ingredients such as:
- EGF – Epidermal Growth Factor
- VEGF – Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor
- BFGF – Basic Fibroblast Growth Factor
- THYMOSIN Factor BETA-4
All of which support the scalp’s natural ability to produce keratin, stimulate blood vessels, and improve microcirculation.
I had already read that 64 per cent of people reported an improvement in overall confidence after just one treatment. I was told that after a full course of treatments patients reported 75 per cent improvement in hair fullness, 72 per cent improvement in overall hair appearance, and patients reports improvement in scalp itchiness, scalp dryness, scalp flakiness and hair fullness.
The results of the Keravive treatment were truly impressive. I could honestly see the difference in thickness, volume, and overall health of my hair. Even my friends were commenting that it looked fuller and healthier.

I could even see where it filled out my receding hairline, full of new baby hairs as well as the existing strands looking stronger and darker hair, giving the overall impression of thicker hair.
A treatment worth having, that actually keeps its promise, hallelujah! And for once it was so good to experience something that was not painful and non invasive, so this time round I did not have to suffer for beauty in the usual way.
So how much did it cost?
£450 for one treatment.
From £1200 for a course of three treatments once a month with a topical home use spray for daily use between treatments and 90 days after the final treatment.
