REVIAN Wins 2020 MedTech Breakthrough Award for Hair Loss Technology Innovation
DURHAM, N.C. – May 19, 2020 – REVIAN Inc., a medical technology company dedicated to stimulating the body’s natural processes to rejuvenate hair and skin with light, today announced that MedTech Breakthrough has selected the REVIAN RED hair growth system as the winner of its “Best New Dermatology Technology Solution” award in the fourth annual MedTech Breakthrough Awards program. This independent market intelligence organization recognizes the top companies, technologies and products in the global health and medical technology market each year.
The REVIAN RED System consists of a wireless cap controlled by a user-friendly mobile app that delivers 10-minute daily hair growth treatments. Using patented, dual wavelengths of LED light this system stimulates hair growth via nitric oxide release and generation. Nitric oxide increases scalp blood flow, decreases follicular inflammation and blocks the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT) – all major factors known to be associated with hair loss.
“The hair growth market is saturated with devices that overpromise and underdeliver when it comes to results,” said Brian Johnson, President of REVIAN Inc. “REVIAN RED is an innovative system that delivers on its promises, features modern technology, and is supported with robust evidence and clinical proof. We are pleased to see MedTech Breakthrough recognize the innovation and results of the team that created REVIAN RED with this 2020 MedTech Breakthrough Award.”
The mission of the MedTech Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence and recognize the innovation, hard work and success in a range of health and medical technology categories, including Robotics, Clinical Administration, Telehealth, Patient Engagement, Electronic Health Records (EHR), mHealth, Medical Devices, Medical Data and many more. This year’s program attracted more than 3,750 nominations from over 15 different countries throughout the world.
“Androgenetic alopecia type hair loss affects an estimated 80 million men and women in the United States, and unfortunately the majority of hair loss solutions available today are simply delivering disappointing results,” said James Johnson, managing director, MedTechBreakthrough. “REVIAN is not just up-leveling technology used to fight hair loss, but also backing their solution with a data-driven approach that simply has not been used before in this space. We extend a hearty congratulations to the REVIAN team for their innovative approach and success with the REVIAN RED System, and we are thrilled to name the Company a 2020 MedTech Breakthrough Award winner.”
About REVIAN RED
The REVIAN RED System is an FDA cleared, wireless cap controlled by a mobile “smart” app that functions to provide a hair loss treatment for men and women using LED light. The patented dual-band, LED technology provides broader scalp coverage and better skin penetration than red lasers used in low level laser therapy (LLLT). Dual wavelengths of LED light facilitate and accelerate scalp healing, allowing the body to renew cells associated with hair growth and retention.
Indications for use: The REVIAN RED System is indicated to treat androgenetic alopecia and to promote hair growth in males who have Norwood-Hamilton classifications of IIa–V patterns of hair loss and to treat androgenetic alopecia and promote hair growth in females who have Ludwig-Savin Scale I-1 to I-4, II-1, II-2 or frontal patterns of hair loss; both with Fitzpatrick Skin Types I–IV.
