Voyage Michigan Interview with James Bartholomeusz co-founder of KeraFactor
Today we’d like to introduce you to James Bartholomeusz. Them and their team share their story with us below:
James Bartholomeusz demonstrated entrepreneurial inclinations even as a child. He’s always been a problem-solver, with a penchant for creating things that utilize synergy. While in high school, he teamed up with a friend to build computers, resulting in the start of his first business at 15. Because his entire family is involved in the medical field, James seemed destined for a similar career. His life’s journey took him in a somewhat different direction, focused on science and research. Notwithstanding, his family was a key influence, evidenced by an inherent “bedside manner” that informed his passion for helping others by creating safe, accessible treatments for a variety of dermatological issues. Australian-born, James studied at the prestigious University of Queensland [UQ] and then in 2006, relocated to L.A. to oversee new product development as Global VP for Syneron-Candela. James is credited with the development and launch of the world’s first fractional RF device, and following that, he consulted with recognized aesthetic device manufacturers such as Lutronic and Cutera and in 2019 became the CTO at Lutronic. He continues to invest his time, energy, and resources into creating and developing innovative products that deliver real results.
I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey has been a fairly smooth road?
At KeraFactor, we face challenges because there are a lot of products that claim lots of things, and it’s tough to be heard above the noise, especially when you know you have something truly innovative in comparison to products with big claims and poor or ineffective (e.g., plant GFs) ingredients.

Don’t take on too many things at once. Try to focus on a couple of things and do those things really well. Be wary of people.
