During your trichology hair consultation we use TrichoLab.



The trichoscopy examination:

FotoFinder and TrichoLAB provide comprehensive functions for measuring and examining hair growth and hair loss. The Trichoscale AI tool uses Artificial Intelligence to determine various parameters, whether trichoscopy or digital trichogram.  Your hair consultation with the TrichoLAB Service will give an accurate trichoscopy report as a basis for our decision– without plucking, shaving or biopsy!

We spend approx 60 minutes  finding out about your concerns, your medical history, medication, nutrition, family history of hair loss as well as your lifestyle.

Following your examination, we will use Tricho LAB processing for your diagnosis from our experts.

Your results will be sent to our experts in Germany to be analysed and depending on the diagnosis we will then offer the best course of treatment.

The Trichology test: A Genetic test for hair loss

Fagron TrichoTest™ is a genetic test for hair loss that analyses gene variations and lifestyle factors so that personalised hair loss treatments can be accurately recommended.

Studies show there is a relationship between your genetic profile and how your hair loss responds to different types of treatment.

This means not all hair loss treatments work for everybody and the success of any given treatment is dependent on your genetic profile and lifestyle factors.

Thanks to the unique analysis performed by Fagron TrichoTest™ we can identify which hair loss treatments are most likely to provide the best results for you.

How It Works

The Fagron TrichoTest™ is a simple test to take and administer, but under the surface it’s backed with science, research and innovative analysis that can identify which hair loss treatments are most likely to provide the best results for you.

1. The process begins with a simple saliva (buccal) swab taken in clinic or at home* with a professional, to obtain a sample of your DNA.

2. You then will need to complete an online questionnaire about your lifestyle factors. This will take around 30 minutes and will include questions about your age, height, weight and any medical conditions you may have.

3. The swab is returned to the Fagron UK hub before being shipped to our state-of-the-art laboratory in Barcelona. Our laboratory uses the most advanced technology available for genomics analysis.

4. Using highly specialised TaqMan OpenArray technology, DNA is extracted from your saliva swab and the gene mutations relevant to hair loss are identified and analysed together with the information provided by your online lifestyle questionnaire.

5. When the analysis is complete, a digital report is generated and sent securely to the clinic  to review. The report outlines the gene variations that we analysed alongside any identified mutations. This is then followed by the subsequent recommended hair loss treatment options for these, which allows for a personalised treatment plan to be created by us.
