New Medical Study shows combination Formula more effective in regrowing hair in men and women.

New York Post

90% of patients regrow hair using the treatment.

NEW YORK – A new treatment for hair loss that is far-more effective than all other treatments currently available for men and women of all ages, has been developed by a New York physician, according to a new study published in “Advances In Therapy,” the international, peer reviewed medical journal. 

The article, authored by Dr. Adam Lewenberg, reports on results of a two-year tracking study of 2,210 patients (both men and women) with the most common hair loss problems (androgenetic alopecia or alopecia areata) as they applied a proprietary hair growth product. The formula is a precise combination of 2% minoxidil and 0.025% tretinoin, developed by Dr. Lewenberg as a hair spray.

The results of the study indicate that nearly 90% of those patients who applied the spray-on formula four times a day “showed visible – and even cosmetically significant – improvement in hair quality” after just three months, with over 85% of patients starting to grow normal hair (hair that is difficult to pull out and is not of fine or wispy texture) within that period. After six months of use, the percentage of patients who experienced new hair growth increased to 92%. Of those patients who continued the four-dose-per-day application for one-and-a-half to two years, 91% had either “grown beautiful, normal hair,” or showed “marked hair growth” improvement, the study reports.

Dr. Lewenberg, who has been treating problems with hair loss in women and men for more than 10 years, was one of the early pioneers to use minoxidil, the only drug approved for use in growing hair. However, results with minoxidil alone were most often disappointing, he said, and he began experiments to find a more effective treatment. He discovered that a combination of minoxidil and tretinoin (commonly known as Retin-A) formulated as a hair spray, showed the best results.

Over the past several years, Dr. Lewenberg has gradually improved his method to the point where it not only produces the high success rates reported in this study, but it also permits easy maintenance, allowing patients to keep their new hair permanently. Dr. Lewenberg adopted the four-dose-per-day regimen when he noticed that increases in the amount and frequency of dosing improved the effectiveness of the hair loss treatment without negative side-effects.

Dr. Lewenberg believes that a key factor contributing to the high rate of success of his treatment is that his compound is uniquely formulated as a hair spray. “As a spray, it is extremely easy to use, it is very safe, it does not have any hormonal side effects, and it is non-irritating, which means it can be applied more frequently,” he added.

The study indicates that after one and a half to two years on the four-dose-per-day regimen, a single daily dose of the formula proved sufficient to maintain hair regrowth in over 90% of the patients and that even this dose could be discontinued for one or two months each year.

“Even some patients who have tried other medical treatments, sometimes for years without success, began regrowing normal hair within months of switching to our regimen,” Dr. Lewenberg noted. This included elderly people, women, and patients with a long history of hair loss. Only men who had been losing hair for more than 20 years did not respond to the treatment, the report states.

For women, hair loss can be even more embarrassing than it is for men…

(NAPS) – For women, hair loss can be even more embarrassing than it is for men, and until recently finding a treatment capable of successfully regrowing a woman’s hair was most often an exercise in futility.

Not only did treatments frequently produce disappointing results, but they carried with them the risk of undesirable side effects such as birth defects or growth of facial hair.

However, a new treatment for thinning hair and hair loss that is far more effective than all other treatments currently available has been shown to generate the strongest results in women, according to a study published in Advances In Therapy, an international medical journal.

The Hair Loss Treatment, which carries with it no known side effects, was able to strengthen, thicken, and regrow women’s thinning hair in nearly 100 percent of the patients tested, with “cosmetically significant” results typically being observed in less than six months.
The hair loss formula, developed by a New York physician, Dr. Adam Lewenberg, as a hair spray, is a precise combination of 2 percent minoxidil and 0.025 percent tretinoin, compounded with specific preservatives.

Lewenberg, who has treated hair loss problems for more than 15 years, was one of the early pioneers to use minoxidil, but he found that adding tretinoin, also known as Retin-A, formulated as a hair spray provided much better results.

“As a spray, it is extremely easy to use, it is very safe, it does not have any hormonal side effects, and it is non-irritating, which means it can be applied more frequently,” said Lewenberg.

A New and Significant Improvement for the Treatment of Hairloss is Reported by Dr. Adam Lewenberg of New York City.

The Florida Newspaper

Twenty-one years ago, Dr. Lewenberg developed a combination of 2% minoxidil and .025% tretinoin, which is presently sold worldwide under the name Dr. Lewenberg’s Formula. Thousands of patients from the United States and all over the world have been able to regrow their hair.
Recently, Dr. Lewenberg developed the first solution of minoxidil and tretinoin without propylene glycol, an ingredient necessary for most minoxidil solutions. In patients with sensitive skin, propylene glycol can increase sensitivity of the scalp, increasing the chances of irritation. This irritation prevents growth of new hair.

Moreover, some patients have or will develop an allergy to propylene glycol. This new formula developed by Dr. Lewenberg allows patients with sensitive skin, or even an allergy to propylene glycol to grow normal hair. Furthermore, because Dr. Lewenberg’s Sensitive Formula is milder than the original formula, it is virtually risk free, when used as directed. This improvement is additionally significant for women, as they tend to have more sensitive skin than men do.

Dr. Lewenberg also improved the Sensitive Formula and his Original Formula by adding a special blend of DHT-reducing herbal extracts. These work to reduce topical levels of DHT in the scalp only, without affect DHT levels in the body. This prevents the side effects that are seen with products, which reduce DHT levels through out the body.

Like the original Dr. Lewenberg’s Formula, Dr. Lewenberg’s Sensitive Formula allows men to regrow hair lost in the last fifteen years, and women to regrow hair lost for any length of time. Both formulas work for all types of hairloss and on all areas of the scalp, including the normally difficult to treat frontal hairline. The formulas are applied as convenient hair sprays 4 times daily. Patients see results in as little as three months, starting to regrow their hair and visibly improving the quality of their existing hair.

Those women, who have not lost their hair and are only looking to improve its volume and quality, can obtain these results in three to six months. It takes one to two years to completely regrow lost hair, depending on the patient’s age, extent of hairloss, and condition. Since both formulas allow patients to regrow normal healthy hair, maintenance is easy or even unnecessary. For those patients with chronic conditions like genetic baldness, they only need to apply the formula once daily to maintain their new hair.

There’s hope for baldness if Rogaine doesn’t work.

There’s hope for baldness if Rogaine doesn’t work.

Question: I have been using Rogaine in hopes of stopping my scalp from balding any more than it has any more than it has and to regrow what has been lost. If it turns out not to work for me, is there anything else I can use? – A.G.

 

Answer: Minoxidil, under the brand name Rogaine, is a godsend to those for whom it works, but it works for less than 25% of the population, and generally does not aid in the growth of strong healthy hair. Peach fuzz or baby find hair in sporadic amounts is more like it, according to Dr. Adam Lewenberg, a New York physician. And with more than three-fourths the number of patients using it with no visible results, minoxidil alone is no solution to stop hair loss.

Dr. Lewenberg has been treating men and women experiencing hair loss with a formula that combines 2% minoxidil with precisely .025% tretinion and claims his patients have impressive success. This hair loss formula is contained in a spray bottle. No massaging, rubbing, messy oils or creams are used. Dr. Lewenberg’s patients simply apply the spray three to four times a day to promote hair growth.

Why does it appear to work so well? For several reasons, according to Dr. Lewenberg. First, tretinion rejuvenates the skin, improving the absorption of minoxidil This system seems to work for a great majority of patients, including those suffering from frontal baldness (an area troublesome for minoxidil alone). And, secondly, tretinion imitates anti-testosterone action, enabling minoxidil to grow strong, normal-looking hair, as well as improve the quality of existing hair.

“This makes maintenance easy because strong hair is not as delicate and can survive for months,” says Dr. Lewenberg, “without formula re-application. Minoxidil is not a well-absorbed medication. If a patient’s skin is not receptive, the minoxidil is not fully absorbed into the scalp and no hair regrowth will result. We learned that when we added tretinion to the minoxidil, the medication could then permeate the skin. Patients demonstrate a much higher success rate with hair regrowth and much lower hair loss.

“Among male patients losing hair for seven years or less, 90% experience significant hair growth after one to two years of treatment with our formula,” says Dr. Lewenberg. Similarly 90% of our female patients achieve major growth within one to two years, regardless as to when the problem began.”

According to Dr. Lewenberg, most patients don’t have to wait a year to see results. Existing hair usually becomes thicker and stronger as soon as two to three months after beginning treatment. New hair growth typically begins a few months later, and after one to two years, most patients regrow normal, strong and healthy hair. Then they’re switched to a maintenance program. Many women do not require any maintenance at all.

The latest hair line: A New York physician, Dr. Adam Lewenberg, has developed a new therapy for baldness

90% of Patients regrow hair using the treatment.

The latest hair line: A New York physician, Dr. Adam Lewenberg, has developed a new therapy for baldness that apparently packs a wallop. According to an article in the medical journal Advances in Therapy, Dr. Lewenberg has been successful in growing hair on more than 90 percent of his patients using a mixture of Rogaine and an acid called Tretinoin. It’s believed the Tretinoin allows the skin to absorb more Rogaine, also known as Minoxidil. A spray, Lewenberg’s tonic also works well on the front of the head, which has thick skin impervious to plain Minoxidil. This new treatment often produces healthy new hair that will keep your pate from looking like a fuzzy navel.

The glossy pictures strewn across Dr. Adam Lewenberg’s desk show scores of satisfied hair loss customers, even though their heads are bent and their faces tilted away from the camera.

It is instead the hair that takes center stage. Bald heads, patchy hair, thinning hair, receding hairlines before. Full hair three months later.

The leagues of the balding and the thinning, whose eyes may inadvertently linger on enticing hair growth advertisements on the subway, may not need to look any further.

Manhattan Spirit on Dr. Lewenberg's Formula for Hair Loss

They may find an answer with Dr. Lewenberg, who sells a hair spray that he says enables clients to sprout a full head of hair.

It’s a cure that the doctor invented himself, and mixes himself in small laboratory in his office on the Upper East Side.

The mixture, a balance of 2% minoxidil lotion and .025% tretinoin, is odorless and colorless. At $35 for a two-ounce bottle, the cost for the first year of hair loss treatment can run up to $1,200 a year. But the benefit, the doctor contends, is worth it. “Everybody’s losing hundred of hairs a day,” says Lewenberg, a hair and skin specialist who developed the spray over a period of nine years. “The idea is to grow more hair than lose it.”

In the 1970s, chemists raced to develop a hair growth product using minoxidil after patients taking the medicine for high blood pressure began sprouting copious hair. In 1986, when Lewenberg first began experimenting with minoxidil, the efficacy of the chemical as hair growth agent was already established.

In 1988, the Upjohn Corporation scored a patent on Rogaine, a minoxidil product, after the FDA approved the substance as a legitimate hair growth formula.

But as a wonder drug, Rogaine didn’t pass the test. Patients with thinning, receding hairlines, or patients, who had experienced hair loss in the distant past, didn’t experience good results.

“The problem with minoxidil was not that people were dying,” said Lewenberg. “The problem was people were not growing hair.”

Lewenberg began experimenting with minoxidil, varying the concentration and the method of application. In the early ’90s, he began to perfect his hair loss solution which, when mixed with tretinoin, increased the absorbency to the scalp. By using it as a hair spray, Lewenberg claims, its absorbency is increased.

“Why they put droppers straight on the skull I don’t understand,” mused Lewenberg, who, at 62, sports a boyish head of hair himself, the forelock combed rakishly sideways. He reaches for a bottle on his desk and sprays several puffs on the crown of his head. Minoxidil, he says, can be used “as a hair spray-forever. As a cream to massage, for rubbing and better sex-no.”

Lewenberg claims his hair loss remedy has gained recognition in the medical community and has satisfied many happy customers. But there are skeptics. A spokesperson for the Upjohn Corporation, for instance, would not validate the efficacy of tretinoin as a hair growth agent.

Over the years, the efficacy of tretinoin and minoxidil have been established in through studies published in several medical journals. Yet thus far, nobody has been able to come up with a patented combination. “The problem is mixing the two compounds together,” said Dr. John F. Ramano, a dermatologist with New York Hospital and St. Vincent’s Hospital. “A truly stabilized confound is not easy to come by.”

Lewenberg believes he has found that compound. ” A lot of American doctors didn’t believe me four years ago,” he said. “But they believe me now.”

He also claims there is a second secret to his hair loss product’s success-persistence. The doctor asks his patients to use the spray four times a day, and to come to his office every three months so that he can photograph their progress. In his office, Lewenberg has over 2,000 patient files, and twice that many photos. In one set of photos, a patient photographed in January, completely bald apart form a fringe around his ears, had sprouted a luxuriant black mane by late March.

A new treatment for male hair loss that is far more effective than anything else now available for men and women of all ages, including some with so-called recalcitrant baldness, has been developed by a New York physician, according to a hair loss study published in the international medical journal, Advances In Therapy.

On the assumption that greater absorbtion would increase Rogaine’s effectiveness

On the assumption that greater absorbtion would increase Rogaine’s effectiveness, especially in the thicker-skinned front of the head, doctors are trying to devise ways to aid its penetration of the follicles. Dr. Adam Lewenberg, a Manhattan internist and hair-loss specialist, mixes Rogaine with the antiwrinkle substance Retin-A. There is evidence that Retin-A enhances absorption of minoxidil by removing dead outer skin cells,
and Lewenberg says the combo makes hair loss preventable in 95 percent of cases, genetics be damned. His patients use a special hair spray (the price of $35 per bottle includes an office visit) three or four times daily instead of twice (the suggested frequency for Rogaine alone, which is usually rubbed on).
