Trichology is the scientific study of hair and scalp. Our team of experienced trichologists - Dr. Lasma Lapina and Dr. Jevgenia Cumakova diagnose and provide a treatment plan for the disorders and diseases of hair and scalp, that may be causing hair thinning, scalp psoriasis, itchy scalp, flaky scalp, alopecia and many more scalp problems.
Consultations and treatments are available for women and men with all types of hair. Men in their 20’s are recommended to consult a Trichologist before deciding to see a Hair Transplant surgeon, as hair loss is unlikely to have stabilised at that age and we could help reduce any further hair loss.
If you have already experienced balding or a receding hairline, you are more likely to require a hair restoration treatment.
What can a Trichologist help you with?
Common problems with the scalp and hair can be a result of inadequate nutrition or dietary gaps, illness, traction alopecia, thyroid dysfunction, damage after chemotherapy treatment, hormone imbalance, menopause, genetic issues, follicle sensitivity, or stress. Our team of expert trichologists will assess your case and provide a comprehensive treatment plan to deliver the results you are after.
Hair Loss, Thinning Hair or Damaged Hair
Thinning or damaged hair can be extremely stressful, especially if you don’t know what’s causing it. And, while a large number of people suffer from hair problems, the causes can differ massively from person-to-person. Understanding the underlying force behind Alopecia, Hair Loss, Hair Thinning, or Male Pattern Baldness is always the most cruial aspect of any treatment. Where appropriate, our Trichologists can advise and refer you to our world-renown team of Hair Restoration experts to help with balding.
Scalp problems, such as Dandruff, Psoriasis, Itchy Scalp, Eczema and Dermatitis, to name a few, are common for women and men and we are able to daignose and treat most scalp problems. If your case requires the opinion of a Dermatologist, we would be able to arrange for you to meet with one of our Consultant Dermatologists.
Hair Texture Problems
Even if you are not experiencing any hair thinning, your hair may seem dull and lifeliss, rough, or may even consist of mixed textures throughout. This can be a result of over-heating hair (hair straightening), chemically-exposed hair (after perms and straightening chemicals), and even stress, which our Trichologists can address and provide treatment for.
Consultation with a Trichologist
You will have up to an hour for a full consultation, during which a detailed examination will be conducted. Along with your medical history, you will discuss your diet, lifestyle, relationships, as well as your living and workplace environment, to pinpoint any possible reason why you may be experiencing hair loss.
Your hair and scalp will be closely examined and only then will you be provided with a preliminary diagnosis and offered advice on medication, products and/or lifestyle changes that could help with your condition.
The consultation is long and thorough because unless we look at all the possible factors that might be causing you to lose your hair, we won’t be able to recommend an effective solution.
Please note that you may require further examination, such as blood analysis, to confirm the condition. A treatment plan can then be discussed. You will have up to an hour for a full consultation, during which a detailed examination will be conducted.
Treatments for Hair and Scalp
The reasoning behind any hair or scalp problem is different for everyone and therefore your treatment should be too. During your consultation with the trichologist, you will undergo a thorough medical examination to get to the cause of your hair issues, and will be led through a tailored treatment plan depending on your needs. You may be required to take a blood test as part of your diagnosis process, however this will be outlined and explained to you if so.
Your bespoke treatment plan will be designed to tackle hair and scalp issues from the root cause, as well as on the surface, for the longest lasting results. Possible methods can include medication, a tailored nutrition plan, or scalp stimulation therapy.
Some patients, particularly men experiencing Male Pattern Baldness may be suitable for an FUE hair transplant to restore areas that have lost hair, in which case you will be referred to one of the Hair transplant clinic’s Rubenhair Latvia elite hair surgeons. At our clinic we also offer PRP therapy for hair restoration which slows down or even the stops hair loss and stimulates renewed hair growth. PRP Hair Restoration is suitable for both men and women.
