Microscopy is a precise diagnostic tool for Trichological analysis. The microscope reveals essential information about the structure of the hair, any obvious deficiencies such as the lack of minerals and the condition of the hair. Hair is one of the body’s metabolically active tissues, often reflecting the first signs of internal problems.
Microscopy is also used to examine the hair root (bulb). Examining a sample of the live hair bulbs will give an indication of the amount of hair loss and also any further loss that may occur in the short term. Examining the root will give a good indication of what is the probable cause of the hair loss or what is interfering with the normal hair growth cycle and quality.
