What is Trichology?
Trichology is the science of the structure, function and diseases of the human hair. Clinical trichology is the diagnosis and treatment of diseases and disorders of the human hair and scalp.
All registered members have undergone education programmes to qualify as a Trichologist. The education programmes cover scientific and medical aspects to help diagnose all hair loss/thinning/hair shaft disorders and scalp problems.
A Trichologist although highly trained is not able to prescribe, if prescribed medications or biopsies are necessary to obtain a complete diagnosis, your Trichologist will work with your GP and Dermatologist to provide information, referrals and suggestions to ensure that an effective treatment plan is identified and put into place for the best outcome for you.
