Trichology Services and Exams

We offer basic and specialist diagnostic services through traditional methodologies (daily hair count, wash and pull test, etc.) and techniques of:

  • Video dermatoscopy.
  • Trichogram.
  • Examination of the hair shaft.
  • Incisional biopsy with histological examination.

Hair Transplant

It can be performed through the PRP treatment (Platlet Rich Plasma), an innovative and effective method against different types of baldness, able to stimulate regrowth and strengthen the hair bulb thanks to the growth factors contained in the stem cells. Alternatively the U.S.S. (Follicular Unit Strip Surgery) is a monobulbar autotransplant based on the removal of a portion of the scalp which, sectioned into hundreds of follicles, is grafted into the area to be thickened. The results are extremely natural compared to traditional transplant techniques and there are no visible scars left in the hair.
