If you have any hair or scalp complaints then a trichologist may be able to help you. There are, however, more common tribulations that trichologists are contacted to try and resolve. The most prevalent problem seen by many trichologists is significant hair loss resulting in bald areas and a thin appearance. They are also often questioned about scaling issues, such as dandruff, which may affect the entire scalp or just specific locations. Another problem that trichologists often treat is excessive oil in the scalp that can often give hair a greasy appearance.
What does a trichologist do?
The first step performed by a trichologist is a consultation. During this time the trichologist will examine your hair and scalp as well as ask you some questions in order to determine the problem and decide what the best next step will be. During this consultation, the trichologist is able to practice the majority of their training as they analyse your hair and scalp in great detail to discover the underlying issues. Once the problems and potential causes have been identified, the trichologist will then take some time to think over a number of key points:
Is the problem you have approached them with more suited to being dealt with by a medical professional?
Does the problem require treatment and if so, exactly what type and style of treatment would benefit you the most?
Is surgery potentially needed? If so, the trichologist will explain the options and recommend suitable clinics, surgeons and methods that may benefit you.
