Summary of Video Clip
People that are experiencing hair loss are often desperate for a cure. However, most hair loss sufferers have no idea where to go for the right advice. Many turn to their doctor for an opinion but are commonly referred introduced to the pharmaceutical system which is not the best option for this type of condition. Trichologists have the specific knowledge and skills to deal with hair loss and offer sufferers viable solutions based on people’s specific condition (scalp condition and level of hair loss).
When you visit a Trichologist, they will conduct a professional health assessment with you, including a hair and scalp analysis. Blood and other laboratory test results may be checked to confirm the condition. Finally the Trichologist will arrange a treatment strategy that is suitable.
A very important role of the consultation is to establish the sufferer’s level of hair loss. When this has been determined, suitable treatments can be suggested and information about the length of time required for each of these treatment approaches (before seeing improvement) can be provided.
Trichologists have a number of different treatment strategies at their disposal. For example, they often recommend vitamin/mineral supplements, herbal extracts, pharmaceutical products as well as diet and lifestyle modifications. Ocassionally the Trichologist will avoid prescribing any treatment all together, instead advising the person to wait a few weeks or months until the problem gradually resolves itself.
