Most Effective Hair Loss Treatment
Dr. Lewenberg’s Formulas are prepared as a hair spray scientifically designed to be perfectly absorbed through one’s hair and scalp. No other formula works this way, especially plain Minoxidil (Rogaine®), which must be rubbed into one’s scalp at the risk of irritation.
When developing his hair loss formulas, Dr. Lewenberg had two main objectives: the safety of his patients and the effectiveness of the formula to regrow and maintain their hair.
Through his research, clinical studies, and over twenty years of private practice treating hair loss, Dr. Lewenberg found that the only way to achieve these goals of safety and effectiveness was to develop a hair loss formula combining 0.025% Tretinoin and 2% Minoxidil. As Tretinoin triples the absorption of Minoxidil, using a higher concentration of Minoxidil (anything above 2%) is potentially dangerous and can cause serious side effects such as heart palpitations.
Dr. Lewenberg has safely treated thousands of patients suffering from all forms of hair loss. While each case is unique and the treatment is tailored to the individual’s needs, Dr. Lewenberg’s Formulas have remained tried-and-true products for the treatment of hair loss.
Tretinoin is the key to Dr. Lewenberg’s Formulas. This medication is commonly known as Retin-A and is most often used to rejuvenate skin. Tretinoin is a safe and established medication.
As shown in a series of recent studies, Tretinoin stimulates stem cells in the hair follicle and scalp, allowing them to repair the damaged hair follicles and surrounding structures. This reverses balding, allowing patients to once again naturally grow strong, healthy, beautiful hair.
Tretinoin also reduces the levels and effects of DHT (the hormone associated with 75% of cases of hair loss in women and men).
The other main ingredient in Dr. Lewenberg’s Formulas is Minoxidil, which has been approved by the FDA as a safe and non-prescription treatment for hair loss.

Tretinoin and Minoxidil Combination
Unfortunately, Minoxidil by itself is not readily absorbed in the scalp or hair follicles by itself. Worse, it does not reduce levels of DHT or reverse damage to the hair follicle. Use of Minoxidil alone, or in combination with anti-DHT drugs, might slow down hair loss in some men, but it will not repair the continuous damage to the hair follicle.
It is the Tretinoin working in combination with the Minoxidil that makes Dr. Lewenberg’s Formulas so effective. Because Tretinoin triples the absorption of Minoxidil, Dr. Lewenberg’s Formulas are applied as a safe and convenient hair spray. This is instead of the standard lotion which must be rubbed in, to prevent any side effects from occurring. Because Dr. Lewenberg’s Formulas are safe, they can be used four times per day to activate the stem cells in the damaged hair follicles.
Dr. Lewenberg’s Formulas are unique in that they can safely reverse hair loss by causing the hair follicles to heal themselves. Therefore patients not only regrow their hair, but they also easily maintain it.
Dr. Lewenberg’s Sensitive Formula
In 2003, Dr. Lewenberg developed a Sensitive Formula for patients with sensitive skin. Formulated with extra care and without Propylene Glycol, this new hair loss formula has been used to treat many patients who were unable to tolerate other solutions with Minoxidil, or who have skin conditions such as eczema, dermatitis, or psoriasis.
