In a friendly and pleasant atmosphere – and with discretion guaranteed – a private meeting is held for the necessary consultations on all aspects of the issue you are concerned about. Firstly, you will fill in your medical history form and then you will be submitted to a Microscopic Hair & Scalp Analysis, which is a diagnostic trichological test.
Diagnosis Through Microscopic Hair & Scalp Analysis
The Microscopic Hair & Scalp Analysis is an advanced and effective hair loss diagnostic procedure. Through the Microscopic Hair & Scalp Analysis we analyze and assess the deeper condition of hair and scalp, ascertain their needs and propose the appropriate personalized treatment.
The camera employed by this specialized diagnostic tool examines different parts of the hair and scalp through high microscopic analysis, with this information then screened on the computer.
Principle of function: Testing of hair samples from various areas on the scalp reveals the pathology of hair follicles, providing all the necessary information:
1. dermatological illnesses
2. estimation of sebaceous glands activity
3. hair loss classification
4. definition of possible scalp or hair disorders
5. percentage of hairs in each phase of the hair growth cycle
6. existence of dystrophic hair
7. definition of quality standards of the shaft
8. density measurement (follicular units / cm2, average number of hairs per follicular unit)
9. estimation of thinning rate
10. reliable estimation of future hair loss
11. complete and detailed analysis of the hair and scalp condition
Especially in the case of hair transplantation candidates, diagnosis through Microscopic Hair & Scalp Analysis can certify whether all requirements are fulfilled in order to move forward with a procedure. Moreover, it provides a lot of useful information that will be utilized for the personalized hair transplantation planning:
- Specifies the exact limits of the donor area
- Defines the donor area supply potentiality (safe limit estimation, elasticity, density)
- Defines hair ability to provide adequate density
- Ascertains whether the donor area is stable
- Allows the planning of hair transplantation based on the estimation of future hair loss progress
- Provides an estimation for session II
We should also mention that more than 90% of interested persons are suitable candidates for hair transplantation.
Diagnosis through Microscopic Hair & Scalp Analysis is provided for free in all personal consultations at our clinics.
Specialized Blood and / or Hormonal Tests
Androgenetic alopecia is the most common type of hair loss and occurs due to heredity, androgens and age. In cases of hair loss due to other causes-hormonal problems, thyroid disorders, certain illnesses, or protein, vitamin, mineral, trace element deficiency etc, further specialized blood and/or hormonal tests should take place (even vitamin tests and minerals & trace elements checking) in order to define precisely the cause of hair loss. If necessary, we record your nutrition history or even provide specialized dermatological diagnosis.
In the majority of cases, these specialized tests concern female diagnosis, due to the complexity of female organism.
