What Causes Hair Loss?
More than 95 percent of all hair loss in men and women is due to a condition known as androgenic alopecia, or male pattern baldness. This condition is due to a by-product of testosterone known as DHT, which is produced in high quantities by the 5-alpha-reductase enzyme found in the scalp. The binding of DHT to the genetically predisposed hair follicle results in gradual suppression and miniaturization of the hair and eventual shrinkage and deterioration of the hair follicle.
What is Revivogen and how does it work?
Revivogen is a topical formula made of natural active ingredients that have been scientifically proven to be the most potent anti-DHT compounds available today. Revivogen Scalp Therapy works by blocking DHT in the scalp, decreasing the levels of the hormone available. This allows the hair follicles to rejuvenate and produce thicker and stronger hair, creating a fuller and healthier head of hair.
Does Revivogen have any systemic side effects?
No, when used as directed. Revivogen's active ingredients are made of all natural compounds that have a long history of use both orally and topically. The only side effect noted with the use of this product has been transient mild scalp irritation in less than 2% of users.
However, some people may have local side effects like redness and itching.
What kind of results should I expect?
After four to five weeks of using Revivogen, you should see a significant decrease in hair loss and notice a difference in how your hair looks and feels. After three to four months of use, your revitalized hair will make your scalp look fuller and denser. With continued use, your hair will stay healthy and continue to improve.
Does Revivogen work for women?
Yes, and we have many satisfied women customers. Surprisingly, the cause of hair loss in women is the same as in men in most cases. Fortunately for women, estrogen helps to protect the hair follicle from the destructive effects of DHT. However, many women develop thinning hair and hair loss due to estrogen level fluctuations and/or overproduction of DHT. Revivogen helps protect the hair follicle from DHT, resulting in thicker, fuller, healthier hair.
Does Revivogen work on other ethnic hair types like African American hair?
Male and femal pattern hair loss is due to DHT in all ethnic groups. Since Revivogen reduces DHT, it works to reverse male pattern hair loss in whites, blacks, Asians or Latinos.
How is Revivogen used?
Simply apply Revivogen to the affected area (and surrounding areas) of the scalp at least once a day. Avoid washing your hair for at least three hours after application so the scalp can effectively absorb the active ingredients. You can apply Revivogen at any time during the day, but most people prefer to use it at night before going to bed. Read the Detailed Instructions for more information.
Can I use other hair care products or color my hair while using Revivogen?
Yes. You can use any other hair-care products while using Revivogen, including hair color and styling products. You can even wear a hat. If you're going to use additional topical treatments such as Rogaine® (Minoxidil), you must apply them at least three hours apart to prevent any interference with the absorption of Revivogen's active ingredients.
Do I need to use Revivogen forever?
Once you achieve the desired results, you must continue to use Revivogen to maintain your revitalized hair because your body is continuously producing DHT. However, unlike many other products, you can decrease the frequency of Revivogen application over time by tapering off daily use and ultimately reducing use to three to five times a week. This usually takes up to twelve to sixteen months of use.
Can I use Revivogen with Rogaine® and/or Propecia®?
Yes. Revivogen is made of all natural ingredients that have no side effects and do not react with other medications, including Rogaine® and Propecia®. You can safely use Revivogen with other medications.
I recently had hair transplants. Can I use Revivogen?
Yes. Although the transplanted hair is theoretically resistant to the destructive effects of DHT, the hair follicles surrounding the transplanted area may still be genetically susceptible to DHT. If these hair follicles are not protected they will eventually be lost, causing the need for additional transplants.
What are the atrophied hair follicles?
If DHT-related hair loss is not treated appropriately, eventually the miniaturized hair follicles are permanently destroyed. This process is called atrophy and the atrophied hair follicles are replaced by scar tissue. A scalp area with hair follicle atrophy looks bare and shiny and will not respond to any product or medication.
Can Revivogen rejuvenate the atrophied hair follicles?
Unfortunately after the hair follicle has atrophied, it is permanently lost and there are no options with any product to rejuvenate the hair follicles other than a hair transplant. This is why recommend to use Revivogen as soon as you begin to notice hair loss. This way, during the hair miniaturization process, the hair follicle can be protected from DHT assault.
Do I need to use a special shampoo while using Revivogen?
We recommend using Revivogen Bio-Cleansing Shampoo to add body and thickness to your hair. This specially designed shampoo reinforces the effects of Revivogen Scalp Therapy by removing sebum and DHT from the scalp and creating a healthy environment for hair growth.
