I have been using Revivogen for the last 4 years and it has good results; my hair loss has stopped and improved to some extent. If I go head with hair transplant surgery, will I be able to use Revivogen or will have to go for Propecia?
My personal opinion based on research and personal experience is that Propecia is superior to Revivogen. Propecia is FDA approved, proven to inhibit DHT and stop hair loss. There is a multitude of evidence including real balding patient written and picture testimonies. Revivogen (applied topically) contains a number of ingredients that contains anecdotal or no supporting evidence that they treat baldness. I have not heard many success stories with this product, but in theory, it could prove to have marginal benefit.
All that said , I like to stick to the principle, “if it ain’t broken, don’t fix it”. If Revivogen is truly helping you maintain your existing hair, then stick with it. There is no rule that says that you have to go on Propecia after hair restoration surgery.
Be sure to speak with your hair replacement surgeon regarding how long before surgery you should temporarily stop using Revivogen and when you can resume afterwards.
