Keeps is a company that helps consumers to prevent the onset of hair loss with telemedicine consulting and the use of approved hair products. Real doctors assign the treatments, but without the need for an in-person pharmacy or consultation.
Alopecia, or hair loss, is something that will affect about 50% of men and women at some point in their lives. Sometimes, the struggle is stress- related, while some circumstances are related to the user’s age. If someone has not had to deal with hair loss yet, the best thing that they can do is prevent it, which Keeps is trying to do.
Keeps offers telemedicine services to men exclusively, helping them to spot the signs of balding early so it can be treated before it becomes even worse. There are only two products that the company trusts, and each patient will have some combination of these products. Read on below to find out about each one.
Finasteride is available in a capsule and is only available with prescription. The treatment only needs to be taken once daily, and it was originally marketed as Propecia.
Minoxidil is applied topically, though most consumers more commonly know it as Rogaine. It does not need a prescription, but the doctors with Keeps will still assign its use to consumers that qualify.
The pricing for Keeps is going to vary, based on the user’s regimen. However, the company automatically enrolls the user in a subscription, based on the products that their consultation figures out that they need. These plans start off at $10 a month, but the best way to discover the true cost is to sign up.
As said above, consumers will only be assigned the use of Finasteride or Minoxidil. Consumers will not have to pay anything for the first consultation with a doctor, but any later visits will be $30. That is already much cheaper than the $100+ visits that consumers usually have.
However, if they have already spoken with a doctor for a recommendation, they can simply sign up for the purchase of that product, since the price is significantly less than going to a pharmacy. All the remedies are delivered directly to the consumer so there is no embarrassment or inconvenience of visiting a pharmacy.
Once the user has an assigned regimen, they will get their shipment every three months, and the user will need to follow the directions available.
When consumers want to get their consultation, they click “Get Started” on the homepage. The first page of questions is common, going over contact information, date of birth, and gender. Consumers should be aware that this remedy is only for men, so women will not be allowed to go any further in the assessment. Furthermore, it appears that services are only presently offered in certain states, due to the use of telemedicine.
According to Google, the following states are eligible for this type of consultation:
Once the user passes this initial questionnaire, they will be asked about their hair loss, including when they first noticed it, the location, and how their hair shedding changes the rest of the body. They will also ask the user about other potential symptoms to get an idea of the condition that may be causing the loss. They will also be asked what they have done to remedy this loss.
During the next step, the individual will discuss their current lifestyle. Consumers will also be asked about major life events. Following this page, the user will need to upload pictures, but they can opt to take them later in the assessment.
Next, the user reviews their medical history, discussing the medical status of family members, whether they struggle with erectile dysfunction, and other questions. They also review information for the online pharmacy, so they know where to send products. After that, they send their information to the on-staff doctor.
Even though the company offers a FAQ page and plenty of details on the website, consumers may still want to learn other information to ensure that this is the right plan for them. The customer service team has both a phone number and email address.
Keeps aims to connect men with treatments that will serve them the best with their hair struggle. The treatments are easy to include into a routine, and the in-depth medical profile that users create will be the key to getting the desired results.
