Trichology is the study of the hair and scalp. Trichologists study problems of the hair and scalp and research the physiology of hair and skin to help patients holistically treat their hair loss.
Hair is our fastest growing tissue and due to that fact it is the first indicator of health problems in the body. By examining things like nutrition, lifestyle, hormones and the chemistry of the hair trichologists treat the hair from the inside out. A healthy scalp grows healthy hair and a healthy body creates a healthy scalp.
Trichologists are trained to recognize hair loss due to telogen effluvium, dandruff, traction alopecia, psoriasis, androgenetic hair loss, and alopecia areata. During a hair and scalp analysis, a free service offered at Images International, your scalp will be examined to establish if you have any of those conditions.
Beyond a hair and scalp analysis, you will be asked questions related to your health like if you’ve experienced thyroid problems or a hormonal imbalance. We’ll ask about your stress levels and your diet. Pregnancy, diabetes, medications, bacterial infections, fever, anemia, heat styling equipment and chemical damage may all contribute to hair loss. Thorough digging into relevant information like genetic history, your overall health state, diet, medications, and hair care habits will allow us to rule things out. We generate a diagnosis based on what we see and hear from you.
Once a diagnosis is made we will develop a treatment plan designed specifically for you. Our treatments include topical serums, low level laser light therapy, stimulating salon treatments, circulation therapy, nutritional guidance as well as stress management techniques.
If you are experiencing shedding, bald spots, dandruff, excessive oiliness, itching or burning or breakage after a chemical treatment then our trichology services are meant for you. Call (248) 540-0900 to set up an appointment for the free consultation that includes your hair and scalp analysis. To have healthy hair you must start with a healthy scalp. We will partner with you to achieve both.
