By choosing to take the Fagron TrichoTest™ you won’t just be provided with a bespoke treatment plan for your hair loss, you will also be able to make the most of a number of additional benefits.
Millions of people suffer from hair loss at different times in their lives and in many cases, patients aren’t able to find a treatment that works for them. What’s more, before the Fagron TrichoTest™ launched, there was no way to truly know how successful a hair loss treatment could be, particularly as the success of any such treatment is often determined by your genetics and different lifestyle factors.
This is why the Fagron TrichoTest™ was created.
Now, it is the first and only test of its kind that helps to address this problem and can provide unique and valuable information to help determine what hair loss treatment is most likely to work for a patient.
The Fagron TrichoTest™ itself involves getting a swab saliva sample from you to obtain your DNA. This swab, together with the completion of an online questionnaire to discover your lifestyle factors, is then sent to our laboratory where our trained technicians then analyse 48 genetic variations related to hair loss.
This analysis is done to detect DNA variations known as SNPs, to facilitate our understanding of the specific characteristics of your metabolism – which often contribute to hair loss.
Once analysed, your hair loss professional or trichologist will be provided with an overview report of your characteristics and how they relate to your response to hair loss treatment. This unique insight can then help with the creation and recommendation of a treatment plan that suits your needs.
The Fagron TrichoTest™ can be carried out in person or remotely*, so to find your nearest clinic and book a test, click here to see our map of available locations and their respective contact details.
