A E Skin is excited to add the Canfield Visia Imaging System. This is a professional imaging workstation for clinical facial photography. The head is placed in the booth and several photographs are taken from three different angles. Both standard and UV pictures are taken with cross polarized light, producing reproducible and high quality images. The system will measure the amount of spots, pores, wrinkles, and sun damage in the skin and these values can be compared between visits to see the improvements. One of the important features is that it will detect discolorations in the skin that are not visible to the naked eye. The system will quantify the imperfections in the skin and it will tell you extactly how much improvement you achieve between treatments. Contact Dr. Alex for a free consultation at 818-835-1833 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Revivogen is a dermatologist-formulated natural product to treat hair loss now available at A E Skin. The natural ingredients have been shown to replicate the actions of prescription medications without the side effects. The ingredients stimulate hair follicles to grow, targeting the cause of hair loss. It is applied topically and is safe for use by men and women.
The hair loss process has multiple steps. First, the naturally occurring hormone testosterone binds to hair follicles. Once in the cells, testosterone is converted to DHT. DHT interacts with the DNA in the cells, and this leads to hair loss. Hair production slows down and the hairs become thin and fine. Eventually the hair follicles die.
Revivogen has multiple active ingredients which work together to treat hair loss. These include gamma linoleic acid, alpha linoleic acid, oleic acid, azeleic acid, vitamin B6, zinc, saw palmetto extract, beta-sitosetrol, and procyanidin oligomers. These ingredients block both the intake of testosterone into the hair follicles and its conversion to DHT. The mechanism of action is similar to both Rogaine (minoxidil) and Propecia (finasteride). In addition to the anti-DHT ingredients, Revivogen contains ingredients to enhance the penetration of the product as well as stimulate hair growth, providing a powerful combination.
The scalp therapy product is easy to use and takes less than one minute each day. It is applied directly to areas of hair loss with a spray nozzle that comes with the product. This is done at night and left on the scalp overnight. Each bottle lasts approximately 30 days and the set comes with three bottles, a 90 day supply.
During the first few weeks of use, it may appear that there is increased shedding of the hair. This is normal and it is an indication that the product is working. The reason for this is because Revivogen activates the hair growth cycle, leading to the hairs in the resting phase falling out as the new cycle begins. Visible results are seen in two to three months and full results take up to 18 months.
