Trichology investigates the anatomy, physiology, nutrition, and chemistry/physics of hair/skin. A trichologist inquires about nutrition, medical history, genetics, lifestyle, and hygiene to identify hair/scalp issues.
Trichologists are highly trained professionals specializing in the intricate science behind the structure, function, and various conditions affecting the hair and scalp. They possess extensive knowledge that enables them to accurately diagnose hair and scalp issues, empowering individuals to embark on a journey of recovery.
PRP, or Platelet-Rich Plasma, is a safe, non-invasive treatment for androgenetic alopecia. It uses your blood to harvest the platelet-rich plasma, which has many growth factors to stimulate hair regrowth.
Clinical studies have shown that PRP can promote hair regrowth by prolonging the growth phase of the hair cycle. During the PRP treatment, your blood is taken and spun in a centrifuge machine to separate the platelets and plasma.
The PRP is injected into the scalp using a microneedling device or injection gun (seen in the video). It takes a minimum of 3 months post-treatment to see a visible improvement in your hair loss.

Hair loss can be attributed to a combination of factors. One significant factor is genetic predisposition, which can lead to male-pattern baldness in men and female-pattern baldness in women. Hormonal imbalances, particularly involving androgens, can also contribute to hair loss. Additionally, hair loss may be connected to autoimmune disorders like alopecia areata, characterized by the immune system mistakenly attacking the hair follicles.
Stress is another factor that can impact hair health. Both sudden and chronic stress can result in a condition known as telogen effluvium, characterized by sudden shedding of hair a few months after a stressful event or prolonged stress. Furthermore, specific medications, including chemotherapy drugs, can result in hair loss during the anagen phase, which is referred to as anagen effluvium.
The role of nutrition in maintaining healthy hair cannot be understated, and deficiencies in protein or specific vitamins and minerals can contribute to hair loss. In addition, excessive cosmetic procedures like bleaching, straightening, dyeing, and over-shampooing can damage the hair shaft and lead to hair loss. Underlying medical conditions, including thyroid disease, lupus, eating disorders, anemia, and others, can also be associated with hair loss.
Hair loss can occur due to various circumstances, such as illness, injury, or childbirth. Conditions like ringworm, caused by a fungal infection, can lead to temporary hair loss. Additionally, hormonal changes during pregnancy can affect hair growth. Lastly, trichotillomania, a mental disorder characterized by an irresistible urge to pull out one’s hair, can also contribute to hair loss.
Understanding the potential causes of hair loss is essential in seeking appropriate treatment and addressing the underlying factors contributing to the condition. Consulting with a trichologist or hair loss specialist can provide a detailed evaluation and personalized hair loss treatment plan based on individual needs.

Some treatments for hair loss that may be available from a trichologist include topical therapies such as AAPE stem cell, PRP, low-level laser, ultraviolet, massage, and aromatherapy, as well as diet and nutrition advice.
A trichologist can refer you to other specialists for diagnosis. Blood work may be necessary to check for nutritional deficiencies. A scalp biopsy can reveal cicatricial alopecia. An endocrinologist can determine if hormones are a factor. A psychologist could be consulted if hair loss was due to trauma or stress.
