TrichoLAB works with the FotoFinder Trichoscale pro tool for digital trichograms. The software offers a precise solution for the quantification of diffused hair loss. The procedure is non-invasive, fast and provides you with all relevant parameters of hair growth and hair loss.
The automated calculation delivers a broad range of information on the following parameters:
- number of hairs
- hair density
- average hair length
- anagen/telogen rate
- number and density of vellus and terminal hairs
- cumulative hair thickness
- follicular units
FotoFinder Trichoscale pro provides a computer-aided hair analysis which makes painful procedures such as epilations obsolete. Therefore, hairs are clipped and dyed on a tiny representative area of the scalp. Depending on whether you want to specify only the hair density or the anagen-telogen rate, the stubbles are dyed either immediately or after 48 hours. Then a dermoscopic image is taken and used for analysis.
The hair density can be determined immediately with the instant count mode. Also, the measurement of the number of follicular units is possible immediately after clipping and dyeing.
FotoFinder Trichoscale pro offers a well-structured visualization of all crucial hair growth parameters, whether number of hairs and hair density, number and density of terminal and vellus hair, anagen/telogen rate, cumulative hair thickness or follicular units. It only takes a few mouse clicks in order to receive an individual report which is full of valuable details, statistics and charts.
In order to precisely determine the actual hair growth, a trichogram may be necessary. Therefore, two visits are required: the first one for clipping, the second one - 48 hours after clipping - for dyeing the hair and doing the analysis. Based on the assumption that anagen hairs grow about 0.3 mm per day, FotoFinder Trichoscale pro specifies the anagen/telogen rate in a quick and accurate manner.
