TRICHOSCOPY VS TRICHOGRAM
Trichoscopy is a non-invasive procedure where your hair and scalp is analyzed through a high powered camera which allows for a magnified visualization of the hair and scalp. The data is then placed into our specialized trichology software for assessing a number of hair and scalp disorders.
A trichogram is a semi-invasive procedure where your hairs are plucked and sent to our lab for analysis. A trichogram is a useful tool for clinical evaluation and assessement.
Our trichoscopy assessment is done in-clinic whereas our trichogram assessment is done online/mail for clients who cannot come to our clinic.
What is a Trichogram?
Hair and scalp evaluation techniques can be classified into 3 categories: noninvasive methods (clinical history, general examination, inspection of the hair and scalp, photography, dermoscopy, etc.); semi-invasive methods (the trichogram); and invasive methods (biopsy).
A trichogram is a semi-invasive method of hair analysis that involves plucking approximately 60 hairs from different parts of the scalp. These hairs are then analyzed under a microscope.
What can be determined from a Trichogram?
The hair analysis can determine hair conditions that can otherwise be missed without magnification. Hairs shafts collected are examined for fractures, irregularities, twisting and coiling or other hair shaft disorders. The free ends are checked to see if they are tapered, fractured, cut or weathered. The microscopic examination of plucked hairs provides reliable information about hair root, shaft, and viability which are good indicators for assessment and treatment of many types of hair disorders.
