Suffering from hair loss?

Fagron Tricho Test™ is a genetic test for personalised hair loss treatment

Fagron TrichoTest™ is a genetic test for hair loss that analyses gene variations and lifestyle factors so that personalised hair loss treatments can be accurately recommended.

Studies show there is a relationship between your genetic profile and how your hair loss responds to different types of treatment.

This means not all hair loss treatments work for everybody and the success of any given treatment is dependent on your genetic profile and lifestyle factors.

Thanks to the unique analysis performed by Fagron TrichoTest™ we can identify which hair loss treatments are most likely to provide the best results for you.

The process is simple and the test can be taken by anyone.

TREATMENTS

There are seven different hair loss treatment categories:

  • Prostaglandins
  • Metabolism
  • Inflammation
  • Androgenic Effect
  • Vasodilation and blood circulation
  • Collagen Synthesis
  • Deficit of vitamins and minerals

It’s likely your optimal treatment pathway will include elements of more than one treatment for hair loss.

Your health care professional, trichologist or advisor will use the information provided in your report to safely recommend an informed personal treatment plan, knowing the selected options are most likely to provide the best outcome for your hair loss.

HOW IT WORKS

The test is carried out by a health care professional.

Your health care professional, trichologist or advisor will take a swab from the inside of your mouth to obtain a sample of your DNA. You will also be asked to complete a simple questionnaire to determine a number of lifestyle factors including age, height, weight and any medical conditions you may have.

The sample will be sent to our laboratory where specially trained technicians will analyse a total of 48 genetic variations from your DNA.

The analysis used in Fagron TrichoTest™ has been scientifically validated by global research. As medical evidence develops, and further information becomes known about additional effects of certain SNPs, your personalised report may be updated at no additional cost, allowing you access to a revised report which may prove of greater benefit.

Within 6 – 8 weeks your health care professional, trichologist or advisor will receive a report containing the results of your test. This will indicate which elements from your genetic coding and lifestyle factors are causing your hair loss and recommend effective hair loss treatment options for you.
