Often we forget that the scalp is a part of our skin and requires the right skincare to help maintain hair growth and proper scalp health. If you want to revitalize the look and feel of your hair and hair follicles, a Hydrafacial Keravive scalp treatment may be the right for you. Dr. Michele Green in New York City is an expert in hair growth and one of the first physicians in New York to introduce the Hydrafacial Keravive treatment for her patients in her Upper East Side dermatology practice. Recent research has shown that poor scalp health, evidenced by clogged hair follicles, dead skin cells, dry skin, and lack of circulation, contributes to thinner, less voluminous hair. Just like Hydrafacial for skin health, Hydrafacial Keravive scalp treatment is an optimal way to heal both the scalp and hair follicles, leading you to fuller, healthier hair.
From the original makers of the HydraFacial treatment, Hydrafacial Keravive Scalp Treatment uses Hydrafacial vortex technology to cleanse and exfoliate the scalp, removing dirt and dead skin cells from hair follicles and promoting a healthy scalp and hair growth. The Hydrafacial Keravive scalp treatment is a scalp health solution designed to revitalize an unhealthy scalp and nourish the hair follicles to encourage new hair growth and prevent future hair thinning. The infused growth factors stimulate hair growth and replenish the overall health of your scalp. If your hair does not have the fullness or richness that you desire, Dr. Michele Green is here to help. Contact the office today to learn more about how we can create a custom treatment plan to give you the healthy hair that you deserve.
What is Hydrafacial Keravive?
The Hydrafacial Company has created a product that has revolutionized scalp health, much like their approach to skincare treatments. As Clint Carnell, the Chief Executive Officer of Hydrafacial, says, “Hydrafacial has always offered consumers the confidence that comes with healthy skin. We wanted to offer the same confidence to the millions of people who are affected by thinning hair.”
The Hydrafacial system has become a go-to treatment for exfoliating and hydrating facials, and now this 3-step treatment process is available to you as a revitalizing scalp health treatment. Hydrafacial Keravive is like a facial for the scalp. This refreshing treatment improves scalp dehydration, clogged hair follicles, dead skin cell buildup, and poor circulation to promote the growth of healthier-looking hair. It is especially beneficial for those experiencing dryness, flaking, itchiness, or irritation on the scalp, although Keravive helps maintain scalp health for those who don’t have scalp symptoms. Hydrafacial Keravive treatment is a quick in-office treatment, making it a perfect “lunchtime” procedure for scalp rejuvenation. You can return to normal daily activities after Hydrafacial Keravive scalp treatment, and you will leave feeling clean, refreshed, and relaxed.
What does Hydrafacial Keravive do?
Healthy hair starts with a healthy scalp, and Hydrafacial Keravive is like a relaxing facial for the scalp. Our hair endures damage daily from environmental pollutants, the sun’s UV rays, chemicals, and styling products and tools. The unique Hydrafacial Keravive technology helps stimulate circulation, nourish and hydrate the hair follicles and scalp, and deeply cleanse and exfoliate to remove dead skin cell buildup and clogged follicles. The Hydrafacial Keravive system uses a patented vortex technology that gently extracts dirt, oil, dead skin cells, and debris from the scalp and clogged pores or follicles. This is especially beneficial for those experiencing dandruff and flaking, although it can still improve scalp health for everyone. The Hydrafacial Keravive Peptide Complex Solution delivers nourishing ingredients with growth factors and skin proteins to promote a healthier scalp and fuller-looking hair. After the Keravive treatment, you are provided with a take-home spray containing the Hydrafacial Keravive Peptide Complex to extend and enhance the benefits of Keravive at home. The easy, quick, and relaxing Hydrafacial Keravive treatment is recommended for all skin and hair types experiencing dry scalp, flaking, and itchiness or wanting to maintain scalp health and achieve healthier-looking hair.
What are the steps of a Hydrafacial Keravive scalp treatment?
The three steps of the HydraFacial Keravive scalp treatment create a combination treatment designed to optimize scalp circulation and healthy skin:
Step 1: Cleanse & Exfoliate
The unique Hydrafacial vortex technology extracts dirt, oil, dead skin cells, and other impurities to clean the scalp and hair follicles while stimulating scalp circulation. By stimulating circulation, essential nutrients, and oxygen are efficiently delivered to maintain scalp and follicle health.
Step 2: Stimulate & Nourish
The in-office treatment continues with the Hydrafacial Keravive peptide complex solution, which contains a proprietary blend of growth factors and skin proteins that hydrates hair follicles and improves the appearance and health of a dry scalp and dull hair.
Step 3: Extend & Enhance
The results of the Hydrafacial scalp treatment are optimized through continued at-home care. Patients use the Hydrafacial Keravive peptide complex spray for daily stimulation. Dr. Green recommends continuous use of this take-home spray for 3-4 weeks post-treatment, as daily use will enhance the success of the Hydrafacial scalp treatment.
To transform dry skin, poor scalp circulation, or less-than-healthy hair, the Hydrafacial Keravive 3-step treatment should be repeated for consecutive months; most clients find optimal results with three treatments spaced one month apart.
What is the best way to use Keravive?
The Hydrafacial Keravive treatment is an in-office scalp cleansing and nourishing treatment to promote healthy scalp and hair growth. Hydrafacial Keravive is a quick and easy “lunchtime” treatment for those experiencing scalp dryness, flaking, and itchiness or for anyone who wants a deep scalp cleanse and exfoliation. Hydrafacial Keravive should be done three times one month apart, with additional treatment done every one to three months to maintain the best results.
After the Hydrafacial Keravive treatment, an at-home topical Keravive peptide complex spray is provided for one-month post-treatment. Starting the day after the Keravive treatment, use the Keravive 30-Day Peptide Complex Scalp Spray once a day for 30 days. Directly spray 1-2 pumps on the scalp, focusing on problem areas, and massage the solution into the scalp using your fingertips. It is best to wait six to twelve hours before washing your hair after the Hydrafacial Keravive treatment or using the at-home Keravive spray. Therefore, many people find it best to use the spray at nighttime before bed so the solution can be fully absorbed before starting the new day.
Does Hydrafacial Keravive have any side effects?
Hydrafacial Keravive is a very safe and non-invasive treatment that is very effective in gently cleansing, exfoliating, and hydrating the scalp. There are very minimal side effects associated with Keravive. Rarely, some patients may have some minor itching or redness which resolves without treatment.
What is the best product to go with Hydrafacial Keravive?
After the Hydrafacial Keravive treatment, you are given the Hydrafacial Keravive peptide complex spray to use daily at home. This maintenance product is used to enhance and prolong the benefits of the Keravive treatment, and it contains a proprietary blend of growth factors to hydrate and nourish the scalp and hair follicles. Apply 1-2 sprays directly on the scalp and massage it in for about one minute. No shampoos or conditioners need to be avoided for Hydrafacial Keravive treatments. However, using products containing the chemical exfoliants AHAs and BHAs can help reduce flaking and dead skin cell buildup.
How many sessions of Hydrafacial Keravive are recommended?
It is recommended to have three Hydrafacial Keravive scalp treatments one month apart for the best results, including using the at-home Keravive peptide complex scalp spray daily for 30 days after the in-office Keravive treatment. The Hydrafacial Keravive can be done once every one to three months, depending on the condition of your scalp. Because Hydrafacial Keravive is non-invasive, quick, and efficient, the treatment plan can be customized based on individual needs.
Does Hydrafacial Keravive help hair growth?
Hydrafacial Keravive, a medical-grade facial for the scalp, can help with hair growth by promoting and maintaining scalp health. The buildup of hair products, dead skin cells, dirt, debris, and bacteria on the scalp and in the follicles can lead to dull and thin hair. During Hydrafacial Keravive, the Hydrafacial vortex technology sucks out. It removes clogged pores, exfoliating the top layer of dead skin cells to reveal healthy, new skin on the scalp while delivering beneficial ingredients to nourish the scalp simultaneously. This is especially beneficial for those with a lot of buildup on the scalp that interferes with healthy hair growth. The treatment also stimulates circulation, allowing essential nutrients and oxygen to be delivered to the hair follicles while removing toxins away from the hair follicles faster.
Hydrafacial Keravive is a great, quick, and relaxing scalp health treatment that works well with other hair growth treatments, such as Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP), topical minoxidil (Rogaine), or oral medications such as finasteride or Propecia. Hair loss is a complex condition that various factors, such as hormonal imbalances, genetics, aging, stress, or underlying medical conditions, can cause. If you are experiencing hair thinning, excessive shedding or feel that you can see more of your scalp with age, it is best to consult with hair expert and board-certified dermatologist Dr. Michele Green in NYC. Dr. Green can perform the appropriate exams to help you navigate the safest and most effective hair growth treatments.
Can the HydraFacial Keravive scalp treatment be combined with other hair loss treatments?
Hydrafacial Keravive scalp treatment is a quick and relaxing procedure for deeply cleansing and exfoliating the scalp, which is especially beneficial for those with poor scalp health, flaking, itchiness, and irritation. For those with more severe hair loss or hair thinning, combination treatments may be optimal. The Hydrafacial Keravive scalp treatment can be combined safely with several other hair revitalizing treatments, including Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment, Rogaine (minoxidil), LaserCap, and oral medications. The Hydrafacial Keravive treatment requires virtually no preparation beforehand or downtime afterward, though some patients experience very mild scalp irritation immediately following the in-office treatment.

Why go to Dr. Green for your scalp treatment?
If you’re wondering what is scalp treatment at a salon or medspa? It’s good to consider the different experiences you will have at a spa versus with a board-certified dermatologist like Dr. Michele Green. As some hair loss and hair thinning can be due to hormone imbalances, autoimmune, or complex medical reasons, consulting a board-certified dermatologist, like Dr. Green, provides a more comprehensive medical approach than a salon or spa. At Dr. Green’s dermatology office in NYC, she can closely examine your hair and scalp health, looking at your individual hair loss needs and creating the best possible treatment plan for you.
Additionally, our office will not only be able to focus on scalp treatment and care but any other aesthetic health goals you may be interested in when it comes to your skincare. From Hydrafacials to CoolSculpting, we are here to support your journey to a healthier, more confident you.
The scalp is often forgotten regarding skincare and skin health, as most people focus on the hair itself. On average, there are around 100,000 hair follicles on the scalp, and each hair follicle is responsible for growing a single strand of hair. Therefore, keeping the scalp and hair follicles healthy can promote the growth of healthier-looking hair. Hair follicles are also responsible for producing sebum or oil that keeps the scalp moisturized and maintains its natural protective barrier. A healthy scalp is free of itchiness, redness, irritation, flaking, dandruff, acne, and excessive hair loss.
Scalp issues such as dandruff, seborrheic dermatitis, psoriasis, and eczema can lead to weak and brittle hair, hair breakage, and dullness. Scalp treatments like Hydrafacial Keravive are the perfect, non-invasive, and relaxing option to revive the scalp and promote healthy hair. If you are struggling with an itchy scalp, flaking, dandruff, redness, or feel like you have product buildup on the scalp, seek guidance from a board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Michele Green, in NYC to navigate the best ways to maintain scalp health.
What are the benefits of a scalp treatment?
Scalp treatments are ideal for any person that has a scalp! Scalp health is incredibly useful for creating healthier hair and skin. With the massive amount of pollutants, chemicals, oils, and styling tools and products that our scalp encounters, it’s no surprise that our scalp needs revitalizing care. The Hydrafacial Keravive scalp treatment is particularly useful for:
- Patients experiencing scalp dryness, flakiness, irritation, or itchiness, especially from conditions like seborrheic dermatitis, psoriasis, and eczema, or Rogaine use.
- Those patients who are experiencing thinner or flatter hair due to environmental, hormonal, or personal stress factors
- Those patients who are getting ready for a hair transplant or undergoing hair loss treatments such as laser therapy or PRP.
How much does Hydrafacial Keravive cost?
On average, the Hydrafacial Keravive scalp treatment ranges from $650 to $750. The cost of cosmetic treatments like Hydrafacials depends on various factors. First, the geographical location factors the varying costs, as prices in New York generally differ from those in San Francisco. Second, the Hydrafacial Keravive treatment may be less costly at a MedSpa than at a private dermatology office. However, the risk of side effects is significantly reduced when a board-certified dermatologist performs cosmetic treatments. Another benefit of seeking a board-certified dermatologist like Dr. Green is that she can use a holistic and medical approach and her expertise to improve hair loss and promote new hair growth.
Does HydraFacial Keravive really work?
Hydrafacial Keravive works wonders in improving poor scalp health, calming irritation and inflammation, reducing flaking, and providing a deep cleanse and exfoliation. Hydrafacial Keravive can also promote the growth of healthier-looking hair by removing dead skin cells and product buildup on the scalp and delivering hydration and nourishment to the hair follicles. Hydrafacial Keravive is a great scalp cleansing and rejuvenating treatment for those experiencing hair loss and hair thinning. This scalp treatment works best for hair loss when performed in conjunction with other hair loss treatments such as PRP, Rogaine, or oral medications. In general, Hydrafacial Keravive is a very relaxing, non-invasive treatment for scalp health that will leave your scalp feeling calm, relaxed, and clean.
Are HydraFacial Keravive safe?
Yes, HydraFacials are safe, relaxing, and nourishing treatments for deeply cleansing, exfoliating, and hydrating the skin. Hydrafacial Keravive is a non-invasive treatment that gently removes dead skin cell buildup and unclogs pores and follicles to promote scalp health. With Hydrafacial Keravive, the benefits of the Hydrafacial treatment can now be delivered to the scalp for healthier, fuller-looking hair. Hydrafacial and Hydrafacial Keravive are safe for all skin and hair types, including dry or oily skin and curly hair.
Which Hydrafacial is the best?
Hydrafacial is a popular, medical-grade hydradermabrasion treatment for skin rejuvenation. Every day, Hydrafacial treatment is performed every 15 seconds across 80 different countries worldwide, making it one of the most popular non-invasive cosmetic treatments available. The Hydrafacial system consists of three steps to deeply cleanse & exfoliate, extract impurities, and hydrate the skin. The most popular treatment is the Deluxe Hydrafacial, which includes an additional customizable serum for specific needs. For example, the Rozatrol Booster is beneficial for soothing the skin and calming redness, while the Britenol Booster helps even out skin tone and brightens the complexion. After a Hydrafacial, you leave with glowing, healthy-looking, soft, and hydrated skin.
The Hydrafacial system also includes Hydrafacial Keravive, a treatment for the scalp to maintain scalp health and promote the growth of healthier-looking hair. The Keravive treatment helps remove dead skin cells and product buildup on the scalp that may interfere with healthy hair growth. The Hydrafacial vortex technology also stimulates scalp circulation, allowing essential nutrients to be delivered to the scalp and hair follicles. After Hydrafacial Keravive, you leave feeling relaxed and your scalp feeling clean.
Is Hydrafacial Keravive worth it?
As scalp health determines the health of hair follicles and therefore impacts healthy hair growth, the Hydrafacial scalp treatment is designed to boost hair health and can, in some cases, improve hair growth. It is exceptionally well suited as a combination treatment to target hair growth and prevent further hair loss. Hydrafacial Keravive scalp treatments are quick, relaxing, and effective in deeply cleansing and exfoliating the scalp to eliminate impurities and product buildup that can cause irritation and itchiness. After the 30-minute “lunchtime” Keravive treatment, your scalp will feel refreshed, rejuvenated, calm, and clean.
