What is Trichology?

Trichology is the para-medical science of the hair, hair loss and  associated scalp problems. It encompasses the study of the diseases of the human hair and scalp, as well as the assessment of the cause(s) and treatment of these disorders.

The word “trichology” comes from the Greek word, ‘Trikhos’, meaning ‘hair’, and was first conceived as a specialty branch of study in Britain in the late 19th century. It then became a specific para-medical discipline in 1902.

Today, trichology is perceived as the “bridge between cosmetology and dermatology.”

The differences between Trichologists and Dermatologists

By: William Gaunitz WTS

A Trichologist is a para-medical specialist and that provides support alternatives that are less invasive and harmful than what you may receive through a physician. It is best to work with a physician or dermatologist in collaboration with your trichologist to get to the root of your hair loss.

A Trichologist have special training that focuses on hair and scalp health. A dermatologist will specialize in managing diseases in relation to skin, hair, and nails. They are doctors that can help prescribe medicines based on symptoms but they don’t always take into account the full history of a patient's hair loss. 

 

Trichologist does not just focus on symptoms but does a full body and scalp analysis. During this process we check the scalp down to the follicle for signs of inflammation, damage, pimples,other issues. We use a microscope to analyze the scalp and uncover issues not seen with the naked eye. 

 

While Trichologists focus on a holistic treatment plan dermatologists use medical therapies which include harsh medications such as steroids, minoxidil, and medical creams.They also may offer to perform a biopsy to diagnose the type of alopecia but only a Trichologist can treat the problem holistically. Trichologists have a larger selection of treatment solutions which include natural supplements, lifestyle change recommendations, hair restoration programs, scalp therapy, and low light laser therapy.
