REVOLUTION REGROWTH REGIMEN
THE REVOLUTION SYSTEM EXPLAINED
We offer a complete regimen of prescription strength topicals, including hair regrowth formulas containing Minoxidil and Retinoic Acid (and topical Finasterides for some men). We also advise the use of our clinically tested hair loss shampoo containing Serenoa Repens. And offer oral medications for more advanced hair loss candidates. In addition to topicals, we generally recommend a light-based protocol for our patients—to help address the possibility of irritation during the initial use of the topicals that we recommend, and also to help stimulate blood flow to the areas of the scalp in which hair loss has occurred.
|While the hair growth formulas we offer at first glance seem similar to what you can find from other sources, it is important to point out that they are not the same. They are compounded pharmaceuticals, developed by hair restoration doctors, and are not available anywhere else. The many OTC versions of Minoxidil and Finasteride available are not created equally… and differ widely in both their effectiveness and usability—with many being a pain to use, sticky, and far less effective than what we offer. At Revolution, we have sought out the most effective prescription versions of every formula we offer, and after much research, and years of experience working with these treatments, we know that the Revolution System works.|
HIGH QUALITY (5-ALPHA REDUCTASE INHIBITOR) SHAMPOO
Our clinically tested 3-in-1 shampoo contains Serenoa Repens (a botanically derived 5-alpha reductase inhibitor), Phytokeratine (a thermal protectant), and uses Coconut Fatty Acids as its cleansers (a natural, gentle eco-certified cleanser). In addition to these ingredients, it contains Panthenol, Biotin, Vitamin E, Aminos Acids and Algae Extracts to condition and protect your hair… all in formula that is PH balanced to the same level as hair’s mantle in its healthy, natural state. We believe it is the best shampoo available on the market for hair loss, and have received tons of great feedback from our patients who use it.
PRESCRIPTION STRENGTH TOPICALS
Because of the relatively low incidence of major side effects, Minoxidil was moved from a prescription-only drug to an over-the-counter product about 20 years ago. In that time, it has been able to benefit a much larger number of people seeking to regrow their hair. And generally speaking, that has been a huge advancement for people experiencing hair loss. The issue with most Minoxidil formulations are that they come in a propylene glycol base that causes irritation in many people (in the form of dermatitis), and from a usability standpoint, propylene glycol tends to be “sticky”. The Minoxidil formula that we prescribe uses a water-based substrate that addresses both of these issues, and makes it similar to hair that is damp from coming out of the shower to work with. The formula also has an added (prescription) retonoic acid component, Tretinoin. Clinical studies have found that Minoxidil + Retonoic Acid can be up to 5 times as effective at regrowing hair as Minoxidil alone. It is believed that this is due to the ability of retinoids to help Minoxidil penetrate deeper into hair follicles. Tretinoin also treats dermatitis, and reduces the inflammation that some patients experience from using Minoxidils in general (the most common side effect of Minoxidil is redness and irritation for the first 1-4 months of its use). Finally, the formulas that we prescribe most of our patients contain Vitamin E, known to be beneficial for scalp help, and is also helped by the retionoic acid’s presence, in that it helps it to penetrate deeper than if it were applied as a separate topical treatment. As a result of the increased effectiveness of the formulas of Minoxidil and Finasteride that we recommend, after an initial period of use (of 3-4 months), patients can choose to reduce their daily use down to once a day, which in our experience increases their likelihood of remaining on Minoxidil in the long run. When you consider the collective benefits of faster possible regrowth, greater regrowth volume and ease of use, matched with reduced long term dependency, it is clear to see why well formulated prescription versions of Minoxidil and Finasteride are superior to what you can obtain over the counter or from other sources. Its why the patients at hair restoration practices tend to see and keep greater regrowth gains that the general population using these drugs.
POWERFUL DAILY SUPPLEMENT: NUTRAFOL®
From stress to the digestive system, multiple things can impact your hair wellness. That’s why a scientifically-backed supplement solution is required to improve our hair growth and hair quality. Our treatment options are curated to your hair and body, according to hair growth science. We offer formulas for men and women with natural ingredients, clinically proven to improve hair health.
PRESCRIPTION ORAL DHT BLOCKER
Topicals are extremely effective in stopping loss, and stimulating noticeable hair regrowth gains in most candidates. But for many, real regrowth starts when they go on an oral DHT blocker, such as Finasteride (for men, and women not seeking to get pregnant) and Spironolactone (for others).
OPTIONAL AT-HOME LASER THERAPY
The current treatment standard for pattern balding is therapy with chemical products, with hair transplantation as a surgical option. Revolution’s Low Level Laser Therapy is clinically proven to treat hair loss for both men and women. Low-level laser therapy is a non-invasive, safe, effective way to reduce iritation associated with the use of regrowth formulas, and stimulate hair follicles to grow thicker and fuller hair without negative side effects.
