Trichology is the branch of dermatology that specializes with the scientific study of the health of hair, scalp and its diseases. Trichologists are hair and scalp specialists (one type of skin specialist) who diagnose the causes of hair fall, hair breakage, hair thinning, miniaturization of hairs, diseases of the scalp, and treat according to cause. Trichology is a para-medical and scientific practice that has more than a century of history, study & research. The roots of trichology started around 1860 in London. The first trichology course was developed in 1974 at the University of Southern California. This course was created to give an overall understanding of hair and scalp health including hair loss, alopecia, and disease. Trichology can be used in a different settings such as: clinical trichology, cosmetic trichology and forensic trichology. Trichologists are usually hair or skin professionals that study abroad for the betterment of the service they provide. Many dermatologist work with trichologists to help diagnose hair and scalp maladies. Since dermatologists are usually trained to know the integumentary (skin) system, consulting a trichologist is becoming more relevant and useful.
Dihydrotestosterone also known as DHT causes hair loss in about 94% of men and over 70% in women. DHT makes hair follicles smaller by shortening the length of the anagen (growth) phase and lengthening the telogen (resting) phase. When this occurs, hair follicles begin to slowly shrink and die, resulting in more short, thin, fine hairs that are barely or not visible to the naked eye. Hair microscopes are used to check the scalp for dormant hairDHT is the primary cause of male pattern baldness, and it can cause female pattern baldness also.
Even with thinning and fine hairs, the follicle can still be repaired with a consistent regimen of proper hair nutrition, DHT blocking and good scalp hygiene. DHT blockers inhibit androgen receptors so that DHT does not bind to hair follicles.
DHT inhibitors are safe for use by anyone looking to re-grow their hair. As always, consult your doctor before beginning a new supplement. Certain DHT-inhibiting products on the market today do have known side effects, including diminished libido and sexual disfunction. Your doctor can help recommend the solution best for your needs

We start with a comprehensive hair & scalp analysis for every client. It's imperative to get some background from our client's previous hair care, treatments, & concerns. We start with a comprehensive questionnaire geared towards finding the proper solution per individual. We also check the hair with a strength and elasticity test before suggesting any hair loss treatments.
All tests and treatments are non invasive and completely safe. We will also review blood work levels (if already taken by your primary health care provider.) If blood has not been drawn or evaluated, we will refer our clients to a partner clinic nearby. After the hair and scalp analysis, we will provide the diagnosis and treatment options that will best fit each individual. Schedule today to get started!!

Micro needles are used to deposit pigment in the scalp to replicate of real hair follicles. The outcome of SMP is to create create tiny tiny hair follicles that gives the appearance of thicker, fuller, and healthier hair. SMP can help both men and women with most hair loss and scarring issues. While usually only taking 2-4 sessions to complete, SMP can last up to 10 years without a touch up.
