Crewe Hair and Skin Clinic

TrichoLAB is a form of hair diagnostics to provide a way of objectively measuring the status of your hair, based on verified methods. This can help in assessing whether or not treatment has worked and will provide a more accurate picture than simple photographs.

  • Average number of hairs
  • Hair shaft thickness
  • Hair distribution
  • Empty follicles
  • Cumulative Hair Thickness
  • Number of follicular units

TrichoLAB only work with doctors and have developed a  process that involves capture of a few images. Secondly the images are  uploaded to the TrichoLAB service.
