Who is Revivogen for? How does Revivogen work? Does Revivogen have any side effects? How to use RevivogenMaintaining your hair is not any less important than regrowing it. Maintaining hair means using a product that stops the cause of hair loss. Antiandrogens and DHT inhibitors are the products that do this. Even if you're looking to stimulate new growth, stopping the cause of your loss is a vital part of having any success at all. If you have concerns about the possible sexual side effects of an internal DHT inhibitor like Propecia, Revivogen is your best bet, and there is a mountain of data backing it.

What is Revivogen?
We encourage you to take advantage of all the resources and information related to this product on the right sidebar of this page.
Potentially one of the most effective, clinically-backed products on the market. We cannot stress this enough. When you Google "hair loss treatments", you are bombarded with literally hundreds of snake oils. Revivogen is the one treatment out there with actual studies backing its ingredients, and this is unique. Revivogen is a topically applied DHT inhibitor that contains more scientifically-backed ingredients for inhibiting DHT than you can shake a stick at. The makers set out to create a solution that contains as many known DHT-inhibiting, antiandrogen ingredients as possible. Since no significant amount is absorbed into the bloodstream, there are no side effects, as may be seen with orally-ingested treatments like Propecia.
Revivogen is for men who prefer not to take chemicals like Propecia to stop their hair loss due to the potential for side effects. It is for men experiencing diffuse thinning, the formation of a bald spot in back, recession at the temples, or any combination of these. As it is an antiandrogen treatment which stops the cause of hair loss, its major role is keeping your hair from getting any worse. Do not mistake this for "useless". You must stop the cause of your hair loss to see optimal results on growth stimulant treatments like Rogaine Foam.
How does Revivogen Work?
The ingredients used in the Scalp Therapy formula have been proven to inhibit the 5-ar enzyme that is responsible for the formation of DHT. Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is what causes your hair loss. When a man begins to lose his hair, certain genetically programmed follicles begin to develop DHT receptor sites. The DHT attaches itself to these sites and begins to treat the follicle as a foreign object in the body. This chemical change not only affects hair. It can also cause itching, inflammation, and oiliness. During this time, the follicle, under the attack of DHT, begins to miniaturize with every growth cycle, until after several years, it simply is too small and short to be seen. When the scalp therapy is used, both the formation of DHT and the ability for DHT to attach to receptor sites in the follicle are inhibited.

How do you Use Revivogen?
The Scalp Therapies are a topical formula and must be applied at least once a day to the affected area of the scalp and the surrounding areas. You must avoid washing your hair for at least three hours so the active ingredients can be effectively absorbed into your scalp. It can be applied at any time during the day. Most people use it in the evening and wash it off in the morning. Revivogen also comes with a shampoo which contains the same active ingredients. It can be a little drying, however, so we encourage you to also use the Revivogen Conditioner or a conditioner of your choice.
Hints and Tips
It is important that you set your expectations accordingly with this product. Our consumer trials showed that most people who used it for 6 months or longer saw the greatest results. Optimal results, just like with Propecia, will be seen after 2 years of use. This is completely normal. Seeing the positive effects of DHT inhibition on hair can take this long. Hair loss does not happen quickly, and reversing it takes time as well.
