Introduction

Hair loss or thinning hair is a common complaint in clinical dermatology. However, patients seeking advice for hair loss are not necessarily bald and the effects of treatment attempts can be hard to measure. Consequently, there is a need for a sensitive tool to monitor hair loss and treatment response. Such a method must be able to analyze the biological parameters of hair growth, such as hair density (n/cm2), hair diameter (µm), hair growth rate (mm/day), or anagen/telogen ratio. The different versions of TrichoScan® offer such tools and in the following pages you will learn more about the sensitivity, precision, and usefulness of TrichoScan®.

  • TrichoScan® is a painless procedure which is highly reliable and gives validated results.

How good is TrichoScan®?

135 out of 144 users (93%) gave us an overall positive feedback. Clients with negative experiences were asked about their main complaint. In nearly all cases difficulties with hair clipping and in the use of the hair dye resulted in non-analysable images and consequently in negative scores in our questionnaire.
