Many Dermatologists treat only the symptoms of (sudden) hair loss, while paying little attention to the causes which many times are produced by a chaotic, stressful and unwholesome lifestyle.

What to expect on your initial visit
The Trichologist will carefully question each hair client and examine the hair and scalp thoroughly to assess the problem and its causes. Urine and saliva test is utilized to aid in the evaluation of the problem. The Trichologist must determine if he or she can treat the problem; if not, he or she will make a referral to a doctor.
