What is Revivogen?

Revivogen hair treatment

Revivogen for hair growth

Revivogen® is a dermatologist-formulated, all-natural solution for hair loss and thinning hair. It’s made from nature’s most powerful ingredients and is designed to attack the causes of hair loss effectively and safely. Both men and women suffering from hair loss can use Revivogen®. Ingredients include gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), linoleic acid, oleic acid, azelaic acid, vitamin B6, zinc, saw palmetto extract, beta-sitosterol, and procyanidin oligomers. These active ingredients were specifically chosen by a dermatologist because of their proven inhibition of the enzyme 5-alpha reductase. 5-alpha reductase is responsible for the conversion of testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT is one of the main androgen hormones responsible for hair loss and is present in the hair follicles and scalp at high levels. Revivogen® works by blocking the androgen receptors, thereby, promoting the growth of normal, healthy hair.

Revivogen Features:

  • Safely and effectively fights thinning hair and hair loss
  • Stimulates hair growth
  • Promotes fuller, healthier and thicker hair growth
  • Works for men and women
  • Has no systemic side effects

The main active ingredients in the Revivogen formula have been scientifically proven to reduce the production of DHT by blocking the activity of the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase. This enzyme converts testosterone to DHT (a contributor to hair loss) and is present in the hair follicles and scalp at high levels. Other ingredients block the androgen receptors and stimulate hair growth.

By blocking the activity of 5-alpha-reductase and lowering the concentration of DHT in the scalp, Revivogen helps to revitalize and protect the hair follicle. Because Revivogen is applied topically, it provides concentrated delivery of the active ingredients to the hair follicle- where DHT is produced- without any systemic effects.

How Revivogen Works:>

  • GLA, ALA, Linoleic Acid & Oleic Acid
    Gamma-Linolenic Acid (GLA), Alpha-Linolenic Acid (ALA), Linoleic, and Oleic Acid are essential fatty acids derived from plant oils proven to inhibit 5-Alpha Reductase. They inhibit both Type II 5-alpha reductase, as well as Type I. Type 1 5-alpha reductase is present in high concentrations in the scalp, sebaceous glands, and the skin. In addition, GLA, ALA, and Oleic acid exhibit powerful anti-inflammatory characteristics.
  • Azelaic Acid, Vitamin B6 and Zinc
    Azelaic acid is a naturally occurring dicarboxylic acid originating in whole grain cereals, rye, barley, and animal products. While FDA approved as a topical acne treatment, convincing scientific evidence supports that both Azelaic Acid and Zinc are effective inhibitors of 5-Alpha-Reductase. Azelaic acid, Vitamin B6, and Zinc are believed to work together against 5-alpha reductase as an effective treatment for hair loss.
  • Saw Palmetto Extract
    Saw Palmetto extract is the lipotropic extract of the fruit of Saw Palmetto. It has been widely studied over the years for the treatment of enlarged prostate and hair loss in men. Saw Palmetto has been shown to successfully block DHT and is also thought to block the androgen receptors found on hair follicles.
  • Procyanidin Oligomers
    Procyanidin Oligomers (also known as Proanthocyanidin) are naturally derived ingredients that have shown to stimulate hair growth in a similar fashion to Rogaine®. According to recent studies by Japanese scientists, Procyanidin Oligomers have growth stimulation activity toward hair epithelial cells in vitro and stimulate the hair growth cycle of hair follicles in vivo. Procyanidin Oligomers were added to the Revivogen formula with the intention to stimulate new hair growth.

Any Side Effects?

Revivogen®’s active ingredients are made of all-natural compounds and 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.

How To Use?

Revivogen® is a Simple Three-Step Method. Revivogen Scalp Therapy is first applied, followed by the Bio-Cleansing Shampoo, and ending with the Revivogen® Thickening Conditioner. The Scalp Therapy should be rubbed into the scalp for 10-20 seconds each evening. The Bio-Cleansing Shampoo should be lathered and massaged into the scalp, and let sit a few minutes. Both the Scalp Therapy and Bio-Cleansing Shampoo are comprised of the same DHT-fighting compound. After rinsing the scalp of shampoo, follow up with the Revivogen® Thickening Conditioner. The conditioner has natural proteins that give hair more volume.

How Long to Results?

Revivogen® is intended to produce hair loss results after three months of use. Clinical tests have shown that the ingredients in this product actually stop the hair loss cycle and support new hair growth. Within the first two to four week period after beginning Revivogen®, some users may experience increased shedding. This is because Revivogen® is activating a new growth cycle for the hair follicles, which causes the hairs in the resting phase to shed. In two to three months, hair should be visibly thicker and one should have notably less hair loss. After about a year and a half, the daily use of products is no longer necessary and can be reduced to three to five times per week to maintain results.
