Fagron TrichoTest™ is a genetic test for hair loss that analyses gene variations and lifestyle factors so that personalised hair loss treatments can be accurately recommended.
Studies show there is a relationship between your genetic profile and how your hair loss responds to
different types of treatment.
This means not all hair loss treatments work for everybody and the success of any given treatment is dependent on your genetic profile and lifestyle factors.
Thanks to the unique analysis performed by Fagron TrichoTest™ we can identify which hair loss treatments are most likely to provide the best results for you.
The process is simple and the test can be taken by anyone.
There are seven different hair loss treatment categories:
It’s likely your optimal treatment pathway will include elements of more than one treatment for hair loss.
Your hair loss consultant, trichologist or advisor will use the information provided in your report to help you agree an informed personal treatment plan, safe in the knowledge you are selecting the options that are most likely to provide the best outcome for your loss of hair loss.
The test is carried out by a professional in a hair loss clinic. Some providers are able to facilitate TrichoTest™ remotely. Contact a clinic for more information.

A hair loss consultant, trichologist or advisor will take a swab from the inside of your mouth to obtain a sample of your DNA. You will also be asked to complete a simple questionnaire to determine a number of lifestyle factors including age, height, weight and any medical conditions you may have.
This will be sent to our laboratories where our specially trained technicians will analyse a total of 48 genetic variations from your DNA sample.
Detecting DNA variations, known as SNPs, facilitates our understanding of the specific characteristics of your metabolism which contribute to your hair loss.
All SNPs tested by Fagron TrichoTest™ have been scientifically validated by global research.
Within 14 days your hair loss consultant, trichologist or advisor will receive a report containing the results of your test. This will indicate which elements from your genetic coding and lifestyle factors that may be contributing to your hair loss and recommend effective hair loss treatment options for you.
A full report with the explanation of your genetic characteristics and the effectiveness of hair loss treatments will be provided to you.
Your hair loss consultant, trichologist or advisor will be provided with an overview of your genetic characteristics and how they relate to your hair loss treatment.
The analysis used in Fagron TrichoTest™ has been scientifically validated by global research.
