Hydrafacial Keravive™ is a first of its kind 3-step treatment that includes an in-office component, as well as a 30-day take-home spray.

Hydrafacial Keravive™ is a treatment than can tremendously improve your scalp health. The first step cleanses your scalp of product build-up, dirt and oil while exfoliating and stimulating your hair follicles.  After the scalp is cleansed, HydraFacial’s patented technology then delivers a peptide complex solution that infuses your follicles with growth factors and skin proteins, resulting in healthier and fuller looking hair.  When the first treatment is completed, you are given a take-home kit to enhance the in-office treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions


Have questions? We have answers.

Each Hydrafacial Keravive™ package includes three (3) treatments and the take-home kit.  The treatments are performed once a month over a three-month period.

There are no needles like PRP and no pain, just pure pleasure.  Each treatment lasts approximately 30 minutes long.  We recommend that you come in with dry, neat hair that is easy to part (the treatment cannot be performed if your hair is braided or in a hairstyle that the medical assistant cannot part through).  Bald heads are very welcome.  You will just need to lie down and relax, while she works the Hydrafacial Keravive™ across each section of your scalp, cleansing and nourishing the follicles.  After the treatment is completed, your roots will be damp, but you are able to go about your day as normal.

No. In fact, this treatment feels so amazing!  Most patients say it is quite pleasant, like a massage or facial for your scalp.

If you are thinking this could just as easily be done in a med-spa – – we think it is important that you consider the different experience you will have at a spa versus with a board-certified dermatologist, like Dr. Marla Klein and her office staff of medical professionals.   Hair loss can be caused by a variety of factors such as hormonal imbalances, auto immune diseases, and anemia, and a complete evaluation is important.

A board-certified dermatologist’s office provides a more comprehensive medical approach than a salon or spa can deliver.  At Dr. Klein’s office, one of our providers will be able to closely examine your hair and scalp, looking at your individual hair loss needs and creating the possible treatment plan for you.  Some hair loss issues can also be treated with prescription medications, and sometimes labs need to be ordered.

Below is a picture on one of our trial patients when we first got started. In our office, typically some staff and trial patients go first before offering a new procedure to the public.

Most of the before and after pictures that you see online are from the Keravive™ marketing company at 4 months. We’ve seen that our patients are already very excited just 2 months into the treatments about the improvements in their scalp and hair. We will post more pictures as we progress on with this treatment program.

Improving scalp health is useful for patients who have seborrheic dermatitis (dandruff), psoriasis and thinning of their hair.  With the large amounts of pollutants, chemicals, oils and styling tools and products that our scalp encounters, it is no surprise that our scalp needs rejuvenating care.

Keravive™ treatments should be purchased as a package of 3, which costs $1,500.  This includes three (3) in-office treatments and 3 bottles of the HydraFacial Keravive™ Peptide Complex Spray.   If the goal is to see if you can thicker, fuller hair, then it is best to invest in the package, and see the process through instead of trying to judge its success on just one treatment.  If you truly only want one treatment, then the cost is $650 each.

Scalp health determines the health of hair follicles.  The Hydrafacial Keravive™ scalp treatment is designed to boost the health of hair and can, in some cases, improve hair growth.  It is well-suited as one part of a combination treatment plan to target hair growth and prevent further hair loss.

The suggested maintenance program is to continue with the take-home spray daily.  The spray will be discounted for continuing treatment patients by 50%, for $100 per bottle.

The entire Keravive™ exfoliation treatment using the Keravive™ Peptide Complex Solution should be repeated every 6 months.  It can be done more frequently if desired.

We don’t recommend this, but if you really want to, you can purchase one 100 mL bottle from us for $200 per spray bottle.

If you are only interested in having the scalp exfoliated with the Hydrafacial system, that is $300. A simple scalp exfoliation treatment would not include the application of the two vials of HydraFacial Keravive™ Peptide Complex Solution, but it would help with the dandruff and acne sores on scalp.

Actually, no.    The Hydrafacial company has a minimum advertised price (MAP) in its contract.   Dr. Marla Klein has chosen to charge this minimum price, even though others are charging hundreds of dollars more, in the effort to make this new exciting treatment available to as many patients as possible.

The Hydrafacial machine has special vortex technology.  It is very effective at cleansing and exfoliating the skin, including that of the face and scalp and some body areas.

For best results, allow the scalp and hair to fully absorb the spray solution before applying heat.  It is recommended that clients do not use a hair dryer within an hour of receiving the treatment or applying the spray.  Your scalp and hair should be dry in 15-20 minutes after the end of the treatment.

Wait 2 weeks to chemically treat your hair.

Patients with color-treated hair can receive the HydraFacial Keravive™ treatment and use the take-home spray without affecting the color and dyes.

Start using the take-home spray daily beginning the day following the in-office treatment. Apply 1-2 sprays per area of concern once a day by placing nozzle directly on the scalp while spraying. After spraying, massage solution into scalp for 30-60 seconds. For best results, apply in the evening and allow serum to remain on the scalp overnight. For smaller areas of concern such as temples and frontal hair line, use it twice per day – once in the morning and once in the evening. The spay is colorless and odorless and will not stain clothes or bedsheets.

The Hydrafacial Signature treatment for the face involves application of a product that contains chondroitin and could cause a reaction for those individuals who are known to be allergic to shellfish.  That product is not used in the Keravive Scalp Treatment.  If you are allergic to shellfish, then you can still do a Hydrafacial Keravive™ treatment.

There are no known interactions with topical medications or non-medical topical treatments.  The HydraFacial Keravive™ treatment should improve scalp health and help facilitate the delivery of such topicals to the scalp.

This treatment has not been studied in pregnant or nursing women, so it is not recommended.

The ingredients are not derived from or tested on animals. These biomimetic peptides are lab-crafted, defined by the arrangement of amino acids which are based on the specific DNA/RNA sequence for the specific growth factor it is mimicking. This is safe for vegans.

No.  The HydraFacial Keravive does not contain any of these ingredients.
