Why a TrichoTest?

Through this test, 48 genetic variations relating to alopecia within 13 genes are analysed and provide a complete report with an explanation of the genetic characteristics and their relationship with the treatment of alopecia as well as suggested custom formulations.

In the past, pharmaceuticals were developed with a “one-size-fits-all” approach, assuming that every individual would respond the same way to the same medication. However, this approach often resulted in a trial-and-error process for patients to determine the most effective medication with the fewest side effects. Thanks to pharmacogenetics, we now understand that an individual’s genetic makeup can significantly impact how they respond to drug therapy. While factors such as diet, overall health, and environment can also influence medication response, none are as telling as your personal genetics.

What is a TrichoTest?

A TrichoTest is a genetic test specifically designed to assess the genetic factors that influence hair health, particularly focusing on hair loss. It combines the fields of trichology (the study of hair and scalp health) and genetics to provide personalized insights and treatment recommendations for individuals experiencing hair thinning or hair loss.

What a TrichoTest Can Reveal

  • Genetic Predisposition: Information about genetic susceptibility to various types of hair loss, such as androgenetic alopecia.
  • Response to Treatments: Insights into how the individual might respond to different hair loss treatments, minoxidil, and other therapies.
  • Nutrient Needs: Identification of genetic factors that may affect nutrient absorption and metabolism, influencing hair health.
  • Hormonal Influences: Information on how genetic variations affect hormonal balances that can contribute to hair loss.
