Trichoscan Hair Analysis

Evaluation of Scalp, Hair Loss & Human Hair Growth


Trichoscan is a software program based on statistics and definitions of hair patterns used to analyse hair loss, hair thinning and human hair growth necessary for patient follow ups and to determine the effectiveness of hair growth treatments. The Trichoscan facilitates the calculation of important parameters of hair growth such as hair density, diameter, thickness as well as growth rate. With the Trichoscan we are able to assess the condition of hair, carry out scalp analysis, hair roots analysis and hair shafts analysis. For this purpose, digital images are taken from the scalp with a specially developed camera-optics system.
