Trichology of hair is a medical specialty, focusing on the study of hair, scalp, and everything related to it. A trichologist is an expert in understanding hair problems such as hair and scalp breakage, flakiness, itching, balding, etc. The hair specialist doctor is adept at treating all forms of alopecia as well.
A trichologist is someone you would consult when you require expert advice related to your hair. The treatment received is not only long-lasting but also highly efficient and precise. A trichologist is your go-to person for any hair-related problem – from hair loss, alopecia, hair thinning, and the likes. Read on to understand more about the trichology of hair and what our team of trichologists at AAYNA can do for you:
Dermoscopy is a non-invasive diagnostic procedure that directly visualizes microstructures of the skin and epidermis. This procedure is undertaken by a trichologist for confirmatory diagnosis by studying structures that are otherwise not visible to the naked eye. The trichologist will use a handheld device to magnify the substructures in your scalp and then identify the specific condition of your hair in order to perform the right treatment.
Dermoscopy is highly effective in diagnosing:
- Pigmented Lesions:Different types of mole can be diagnosed using dermoscopy. It also helps monitor melanomas (skin cancer).
- Hair loss disorders:The treatment helps diagnose varied reasons behind hair loss, allowing the trichologist to determine the right course of treatment.
- Inflammatory Disorders: Dermatological conditions like seborrheic dermatitis, lichen planus, and Psoriasis can be diagnosed and monitored using dermoscopy
Platelet Rich Plasma
Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP treatment is an FDA-approved, non-surgical treatment for hair restoration, carried out by a trichologist. It uses the patient’s own blood to support the renewal of hair follicles. This is why it’s also called Autologous PRP. The treatment takes a small sample of your blood, after which it is centrifuged (spun) to develop plasma that is rich in platelet. The plasma is injected over your scalp to rapidly aid the regeneration of hair follicles.
Mesotherapy is highly effective in hair loss that occurs due to reduced scalp microcirculation, deficiency of nutrients, or a hormonal influence. A cocktail mixture rich in biotin, vitamins, amino acids, and minerals is developed and superficially injected to promote hair growth – via mechanical and chemical stimulation.
Trichology of hair is a complex study as every individual has a different scalp, with different hair types and thus has different hair issues. Your hair is not just an integral part of your appearance but also a big confidence booster. Give your hair the care it deserves with expert treatment by the hands of a trichologist.
