Trichology checklist

  • See a Trichologist who will examine your scalp and strands using a handheld microscope. A microscope that has a cable attached to a monitor would be best. This will allow you to view the examination of your scalp and strands. Keep in mind that not all Trichologists use this type of equipment, so ask before making your appointment. Your visit to the Trichologist is important because you can find out if the hair loss is stemming from external issues.
  • Be sure to ask the Trichologist about the treatment options that are available from the office.
  • Also, you should be aware that Trichologist are drugless practitioners, so they will have a natural approach to any treatment.
  • Be sure to ask what percentage of re-growth you can expect; this will keep you from becoming disappointed. In some cases dealing with damage to your scalp, your hair loss may be permanent, in which case a Trichologist may be able to help stop future hair loss. Also, a Trichologist will be able to offer helpful tips for your stylist specializing in prevention of some types of hair loss. Trichologist can be valuable aids because of their focus and point of view, and that they study the strand and its connection to the scalp.
  • Also beneficial is that they offer in-clinic visits and treatments. They can explain to you what to expect when dealing with a doctor or other specialist and give their opinion on which, if needed, should be involved.
