Trichological analyses are performed by a Certified Trichologist when patients require a deeper understanding of their hair loss or scalp problem. Your Trichologist will determine which type of hair loss or scalp problem you have, and advise you which treatments, if any, will help your condition. New patients are given a detailed analysis during which the Trichologist examines the hair and scalp thoroughly. Relevant information is obtained from the patient regarding their health, medical history, history of the problem, diet, hair care habits, and other pertinent facts that may relate to their problem. It may be necessary to epilate some hair for examination under the microscope or to cut some hair for a trace mineral analysis. Sometimes specific blood tests will be recommended if nutritional or hormonal imbalances, or other medical issues are suspected. Although these tests can help reveal issues that may be contributing to the problem, they are not always necessary.

Doctor Appointment for Hair

Usually, a follow up appointment will be scheduled once all tests results are received. At this time, the Trichologist will advise the patient what the conclusions are and what treatments are available and the results that can be expected. In some cases, the patient may need to be referred to a Medical Doctor, Dermatologist, or Endocrinologist if a medical issue is discovered. Fortunately, most problems that a Trichologist sees can be dealt with in the Trichologist’s clinic but the recognition of the severity of a problem is an essential part of a Trichologist’s training and referrals are always made when requested and required.

Although initial consultations are free, the costs of trichological analyses are listed below.
