Revivogen for Hair Loss
Revivogen is promoted as an all natural DHT inhibitor solution for both men and women who suffer from thinning hair. The product, developed by dermatologist Dr. Alex Khadavi, claims to help stop hair loss and promote healthy, thicker, fuller hair growth. Revivogen comes in three distinct products – a scalp therapy solution, a shampoo and a conditioner. The product contains a number of natural herbs and minerals including saw palmetto and vitamin B6.
The Revivogen scalp therapy solution claims to work by blocking DHT (the main cause of hair loss) in the scalp. In turn this allows the hair follicles to grow fuller and healthier, thus slowing the rate of thinning.
Revivogen is applied directly to the affected areas of the scalp once per day. The manufacturer claims that results can be seen in as little as a month or so, with a noticeable difference in the way the patient’s hair looks and feels. The appearance of a fuller head of hair after three to four months of use is claimed. Even with improvement of the patient’s hair continued use of Revivogen is recommended to subdue the effects of DHT which the body will always continue to produce. However the manufacturer suggests that patients can scale back on the frequency of use after a period of about 12 – 16 months. Typically a three month supply of the topical solution will cost around $USD90.00 although prices may vary. The Revivogen shampoo and conditioner will set you back a further $30 or so, but these items are optional.
The Revivogen hair loss solution has been on the market since 1999 and has not been reported to cause any real side effects - with the exception of a very small percentage of users experiencing a mild scalp irritation.
The manufacturers state that Revivogen can be used with other hair loss products, including topical solutions such as Rogaine, however it is recommended to allow a suitable period of time to elapse between the respective applications to allow the solution from each to be absorbed into the scalp.
Revivogen, which as an all-natural product does not require FDA approval, does not specifically claim to regrow hair but rather to arrest the thinning and dying of existing hair and to rejuvenate existing hair follicles. For this reason it would not be a suitable option for those with significant or advanced hair loss as a way of regrowing their hair. For those with early hair loss or thinning, Revivogen could be a viable alternative to consider to help to slow down the thinning process. As in all cases though it pays to consult with your health specialist before embarking on any lengthy, and often expensive, course of action.
