The 5 - Steps of Hair loss Diagnosis
Dermatological and Medical Examination
A full and comprehensive dermatological check is performed on the scalp. The patient’s medical history is consulted, in the hope of identifying the presence of an illness that could affect a transplant treatment. This exam determines the type of alopecia that patient is suffering from.
We use a trichometry exam in the area where the hair thinning is prominent. This trichometry uses state of the art analytical methodologies. This allows us to access the amount of hair available for lifetime exportation. This exam also measures hair density, hair type and the grade of the patient’s hair loss
DNA Analysis is performed on hair follicles. This method allows us to detect potential DNA lesions. We extract a single hair follicle. This is then sent to one of our partner labs for analysis. This system allows us to create a clear scientifically-accurate picture of the client’s hair loss.
Why do people experience hair loss?
Balding, also known as andogenetic alopecia, is a hereditary condition that develops in men and women. Pattern baldness is seen most commonly in men and it occurs because of an inherited genetic predisposition that causes hair to fall out with age. At least 50% of men will lose their hair during their lifetime.
Why is my hair getting thinner?
Hair loss may be due to a number of factors including genetics, age, poor nutrition and certain medical conditions or treatments. In cases where you have more than one contributing factor, the cumulative effect can be more severe hair loss.
