Hair loss is a problem that affects millions of people. If you struggle with confidence and a sense of satisfaction about the thickness of your hair but are not ready to commit to prescribed medications or hair transplant surgery, you may be interested in an innovative, drug-free therapy called Viviscal Professional.
What is Viviscal Professional?
Viviscal Professional is a dual-action hair care system that has been developed through twenty years of research on hair loss. Products include topical hair care and a special supplement that all nourish hair from the inside out. It’s like a multivitamin for your hair.
How does Viviscal Professional work?

Am I a candidate for Viviscal Professional?
Most people who are interested in hair restoration are good candidates for drug-free Viviscal Professional treatment. Many men and women who have been treated with this family of products have experienced improved density and hair strength in addition to improved growth cycles.
Viviscal Professional may not be appropriate for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding or for patients with fish or shellfish allergies. This is because trace amounts these substances may be present in the manufacturing facility. Viviscal Professional treatment is recommended only after a consultation with Dr. Lombardo or a trained, experienced member of our staff during which we discuss hair restoration goals, current health, and medical history.
What are the side effects of Viviscal Professional?
One of the advantages of Viviscal Professional treatment is that no serious side effects have been identified in clinical studies. Side effects associated with this method of hair restoration are generally mild and manageable by taking oral supplements with a meal. Potential side effects include:
- Nausea. The inclusion of iron in the oral Viviscal Professioanl supplement could cause stomach irritation.
- Skeletal issues. Joint stiffness or pain may result from Viviscal Professional but is not common. This could stem from a severe overuse of vitamin C. Patients may be advised not to take vitamin C supplements when using Viviscal Professional as a way to minimize this risk.
- Allergic reaction. People with allergies to shellfish, fish, should not take Viviscal Professional due to the marine protein complex in the AminoMar formula.

I have referred many of my friends to her and they are always happy with their results. She is always learning about new products and procedures, so you know that you are getting the very latest in the cosmetic field. Her staff is efficient and friendly. I always leave her office with a giant smile in my face!” -C.B.
How long until i see results?
The Viviscal Professional dietary supplement works from the inside out. Some patients may begin to notice a decrease in shedding after a few weeks of consistent use. The stages in which results develop include:
- Stage 1 – The nourishment delivered to hair follicles improves as the marine complex AminoMar is consistently used topically and taken internally.
- Stage 2 – Hair strength improves, which may be noticed as a decrease in wispy, thin hair.
- Stage 3 – Existing hair becomes denser and less breakage may be noticed as a result.
- Stage 4 – Hair appears more vibrant and thick.
Overall, these stages take place over a six-month period.
What is the active ingredient?
Viviscal Professional contains the proprietary AminoMar® marine complex, a formulation that includes vital nutrients such as Iron, Zinc, Biotin, Niacin, Vitamin C and an exclusive marine complex derived from fish proteins. The ingredients were selected based on scientific study that observed a link between a fish- and protein-rich diet and skin and hair health. Research suggests that the GAGs, or long-chain sugar molecules called glycosaminoglycans attract and retain water, especially in the skin and hair.
Are Viviscal Hair Loss Treatment Results Permanent?
Viviscal hair loss treatment can produce permanent results for some types of hair loss. If a temporary factor like stress or a hormonal imbalance has caused your hair to thin, you can see a permanent restoration of your hair growth after complete Viviscal treatment. If your hair loss is caused by an ongoing factor, such as an underlying medical condition or aging, you may need to continue Viviscal treatment long term to maintain your hair’s growth.

These prices may change when purchased through various retailers, and certain discounts may apply. Your cosmetic medicine provider can give you an estimate of the cost in advance of your Viviscal treatment.
Does Viviscal Interfere with Other Medications?
Viviscal is considered to be a generally safe supplement, and there are no known interactions with other drugs. With that being said, you should always consult with your physician prior to beginning any new supplement or medication. If you take daily medications or supplements, please speak to your doctor before starting Viviscal treatment.
While Viviscal should not interfere with the effects of your existing medications, your medications may impact the effectiveness of Viviscal treatment. Medications like beta-blockers, antidepressants, and acne medications can all exacerbate hair loss and counteract the actions of Viviscal.
Are there any risks to Viviscal Professional treatment?
Viviscal Professional is a supplement that is the equivalent of vitamins for hair restoration. It doesn’t contain any drugs.

Why is my hair thinning?
There are a variety of factors that can affect hair growth in both men and women. These include:
- Hormonal changes
- Genetic tendencies
- Poor nutrition
- Environmental damage
- Damage from over-styling or heat styling
These factors can lead to hair breakage due to thinning of the individual hair shafts. Viviscal Professional has proven in clinical studies to produce thicker, fuller hair.
Can I take both of my Viviscal tablets at once?
No. These need to be taken as a single tablet in the morning and one at night. That spreads the dosage across the entire day.
How can I maintain my results?
Hair breakage and damage can be caused by over-styling, excessive use of heat styling, coloring, and extensions. If you can limit these types of treatments, you’ll help keep your new thicker, fuller hair looking that way.
For many people, their hair loss is also caused by deficiencies in iron, biotin, and zinc. Ensuring you’re getting adequate amounts of these important minerals and vitamins also keeps your hair stronger and healthier.
