What can you expect during an ‘onsite’ consultation with a Trichologist?
Before your scheduled assessment it is important that the Trichologist see your scalp in its ‘natural state’. Meaning we ask you do not wash your hair for a minimum of 24 to 48 hours. In this way the Trichologist can get accurate readings and diagnose the problem properly.The first step is to evaluate your hair loss or scalp ailment. You will meet with our Trichologist who will evaluate your scalp or hair loss condition and begin to develop your program. Our Trichologist will determine the cause of your condition by doing a thorough visual, micro camera, and sometimes microscopic examination. In many instances you will be referred to your family physician to perform a complete physiological evaluation, including blood work, to help further pinpoint the cause. A Trichological analysis of your blood work is often an important step in this discovery process. For some clients a mineral hair analysis may be recommended as well. In most cases for hair loss our Trichologist will create a customized program that includes TOPICAL TREATMENTS, VITAMIN THERAPY, and LASER THERAPY. With scalp ailments treatments are complex and often a combination of topicals and nutritional recommendations.
