What is Trichoscopy for your scalp

Basically, you can't self medicate unless you have been diagnosed by a physician and given a prescription right?. This is what Trichoscopy is to your natural hair and scalp. 


Trichoscopy is not just for people with severe hair and scalp issues. It is the microscopic report of the status of your hair and scalp and is not tailored to any hair or scalp treatment.

Trichoscopy is also perfect for people who need to use their report for other medical purposes, at the request of a medical expert.


Why You Need to do a Trichoscopy For Your Scalp

In the treatment of hair and scalp issues, early diagnosis is important to avoid the problems becoming irreversible or worse.

  • Trichoscopy helps in the diagnostics of alopecia, female pattern hair loss and other hair and scalp issues.
  • The process is also useful in identifying which hair loss is predominant i.e shedding or breakage as well as giving good insight on hair shaft damage.
  • If you have been trying to tackle a stubborn scalp issue after loads of trial and errors, then it is time to book a Trichoscopy appointment near you.  
  • It is also great for people who are just curious about the state of their natural hair and scalp and want to have a magnified image of it.

A Trichologist can give an online consultation to help determine varying factors such as hair type, identifying hair and scalp issue or offering solutions based on the experiences of the client.

However, as with other hair loss treatments like Low Level Laser Therapy, Microneedling and High Frequency Treatment which requires the physical presence of the patient,  a Trichoscopy must also be done in a hair clinic with the Trichoscopic instrument and must be performed by a certified Trichologist.

At African Naturalistas hair clinic, we offer Trichoscopy sessions to our clients from various part of the world.
