Is DE|RIVE Hair Restoration Safe for All Skin Types?

If you have been feeling stressed about hair loss, know that it’s never too late to save your tresses. There are effective ways to save existing hair, restore hair growth and boost the appearance and health of your locks.

Getting to the root cause of your hair loss is, of course, the first step in successfully treating it. The second step is restoring your hair health with cutting-edge solutions, like the DE|RIVE system. Using plant-derived exosomes, this noninvasive treatment promises to safely and conveniently give you thicker, fuller and healthier hair within months.

But if you have sensitive, dry, mature or otherwise problematic skin, you may be wondering whether it’s safe for you to try this treatment. To find out more about DE|RIVE and its safety, keep reading.

What Exactly Is DE|RIVE?

DE|RIVE is a noninvasive treatment for hair loss. It can help address excessive hair thinning, shedding or reduced regrowth. The treatment is suitable for both men and women and for different forms of hair loss, such as pattern hair loss, alopecia areata and telogen effluvium.

The treatment involves using the patented DE|RIVE plant-based serum that has been specifically formulated to restore hair and scalp health.

The serum is delivered in two steps:

  1. Your provider applies the serum to the treatment area with a 3ml glass syringe. Microneedling, RF microneedling or ultrasound can be additionally used to enhance treatment efficiency.
  2. You will be given a 30ml supply pump to apply the serum twice a day for a month for continuous treatment.

While you may notice an improvement in your hair’s appearance one month after treatment, most patients need a series of three treatments spaced one month apart to achieve optimal results. Patients with extensive hair loss may require more treatments.

Benefits of DE|RIVE

DE|RIVE is a unique treatment on the market, with benefits that set it apart from the competition:

  • Noninvasive involving simple topical application of a powerful serum (in other words, no needles, incisions, pain or downtime).
  • Most of the treatment is done in the comfort of your own home through daily serum application.
  • It can be combined with other procedures or be used as a stand-alone treatment.
  • A 100% natural treatment with plant-based and hormone-free ingredients.

The Science Behind the DE|RIVE System

Sure, you’ve heard that DE|RIVE is great for hair restoration, but how and why does it work?

The DE|RIVE serum contains plant-derived, biomimetic exosomes that were specifically formulated to restore hair growth. Exosomes are types of small extracellular vesicles — small particles derived from the endosomes of most cells. They have many biological functions, just one of which is to mediate signaling between cells. Researchers believe they work by changing the crosstalk between epithelial and stem cells in hair follicles during the hair growth cycle.

Explained differently, exosomes promote hair growth by acting on cellular and molecular processes in the hair follicle.

While their exact mechanism of action is yet to be understood, possible explanations include:

Activating Stem Cells

Exosomes activate and promote the proliferation of stem cells within hair follicles. This initiates the follicle to switch from the telogen (resting) phase to the anagen (growth) phase.

Reducing Inflammation

By acting on immune responses in the skin and the follicle itself, exosomes can help reduce localized inflammation, creating better conditions for healthy hair growth.

Improving Circulation

Poor circulation can have a negative effect on your hair. Exosomes can improve blood flow to the scalp by promoting the creation of new blood vessels that help bring nutrients and hormones to this area.

Delivering Growth Factors

Exosomes carry hundreds of growth factors as well as microRNAs, all of which can promote hair growth and health.

Is DE|RIVE Safe for All Skin Types?

According to the company behind DE|RIVE, Aesthetic Management Partners, this product is safe for all skin types. In fact, the product is intended to promote and support overall scalp and hair health and is especially beneficial for those with sensitive or dry skin.

While other hair restoration treatments are known to cause dryness, flaking and skin irritation, this isn’t the case with DE|RIVE. DE|RIVE contains only natural and plant-derived ingredients that have not been found to irritate the skin or cause other side effects. According to one systematic review of studies examining exosome treatments in hair restoration, no serious side effects have been reported thus far.

The same holds true for different skin tones. While some topical and noninvasive treatments can pose problems for those with very dark or light skin — such as causing uneven pigmentation or being ineffective — DE|RIVE does not cause such problems. It won’t irritate any layer of the skin, which would otherwise make the skin sensitive to sun exposure that could result in pigmentation changes.

What if I Have Skin/Medical Conditions?

If you have a condition like eczema, psoriasis or atopic dermatitis affecting your scalp, it’s important to speak to your doctor about using DE|RIVE for hair growth. While generally proven to be safe, we don’t yet know whether this applies to people with various skin conditions. Because this treatment was found to reduce inflammation and promote skin health, it may be helpful in your particular case. However, this is up to you and your doctor to decide.

Otherwise, the makers of DE|RIVE claim their product is completely safe for anyone, including pregnant and breastfeeding women and those with underlying medical conditions. Again, notify your doctor before considering this treatment.
