Three significant barriers in finding a treatment for hair loss
Trichoscopy is always the first step against hair loss
Trichoscopy is always the first step for the treatment of hair loss. It is the only scientific and objective method for the assessment and diagnosis of scalp disorders.
Through trichoscopy the condition of the hair follicles per square centimetre of the surface of the scalp is examined, allowing us to collect important data for the diagnosis, including: number of hair follicles, number of hair per hair follicle, hair thickness, as well as the lesions in the perifollicular epidermis and the area’s blood vessels.
These data contribute in determining the actual cause of hair loss and then they constitute an objective comparison measure of the recommended treatment effectiveness.
