What happens during the treatment in clinic?
At your initial consultation there will be a dermascopic examination of the scalp to identify the type of hair loss we are dealing with. In addition to more involving techniques, Viviscal Professional is started advising to take two tablets a day in the morning and evening after food. It is essential to continue treatment for a period of at least 6 months. Thereafter a maintenance dose of one to tablets per day can be taken.
At Rejuvence we always advise our clients to start Viviscal Professional at the initial consultation. It is an excellent adjunct to microneedling and platelet rich plasma. It is also recommended for patients who are contemplating a hair transplant or indeed have already had a hair transplant to maintain and support healthy hair regeneration.
