Hair is a living structure that is highly dependent on the health and general condition of the body. There is a special hair doctor – a trichologist.
If your hair has become dull, split and falling out, it is often not a cosmetic problem and not a matter of bad shampoo. A consultation with a trichologist, which you can get at the Esteva Clinic of Aesthetic Medicine and Dermatology, will help you determine the cause of poor hair condition.
What does a trichologist do?
Trichology is a field of dermatology focused on the study and treatment of hair and scalp diseases. Therefore, a trichologist is a qualified dermatologist who is well versed in the problems that cause hair diseases, ranging from purely cosmetic phenomena to alopecia of various kinds.
The trichologist prescribes treatment based on objective data from the results of examinations and tests. Even ordinary dandruff can be not just a cosmetic flaw, but can be caused by gastrointestinal problems or the presence of pathogenic bacteria and fungi on the scalp.
During the examination, the hair doctor will find out what problems you have encountered before, what you associate with the current condition, and whether your relatives had similar problems.

What scalp and hair problems do patients most often come to you with?
We are often approached by people with hair loss. This problem is so multifaceted that it requires an integrated approach.
A consultation with a trichologist is the first step on the way to healthy hair.
There are many reasons to visit a trichologist:
📌 scalp peeling;
📌 Itching of the head;
📌 dullness of the hair;
📌 split hair;
📌 hair loss;
📌 multiple foci of hair loss and baldness.
Of course, it is the various forms of hair loss that most often make you visit a trichologist.
There are different types of hair loss, which we will briefly discuss.
Telogenic alopecia is a temporary hair loss, usually due to stress or general illness. This hair loss is usually noticed when combing your hair with a comb, taking a shower, or finding hair on your pillow.
Телогенова алопеціяAndrogenetic alopecia, which is also often referred to as male pattern baldness, nevertheless often occurs in both men and women. The only difference is that in women, hair thins all over the head and rarely leads to complete baldness.
There can also be diffuse thinning or diffuse hair loss, in which hair is lost from all areas of the scalp, resulting in thin and low density hair, and focal alopecia, which is manifested by round bald patches on the scalp or hair loss in different parts of the body.
In addition to various types and forms of hair loss, seborrheic dermatitis can also occur – this is a common skin disease accompanied by inflammation of the scalp, the appearance of flaky spots, dandruff, and itching, but it does not cause irreversible hair loss. Seborrheic dermatitis is usually exacerbated by seasonal changes, fatigue, or stress.
What procedures does a trichologist prescribe?
Methods for improving hair condition are often used, such as:
Mesotherapy is a method of injecting useful components directly into the scalp. This activates blood circulation, and nutrients quickly enter the hair follicles.
This helps to strengthen and activate hair growth, improve the functioning of the sebaceous glands. The hair becomes thicker, healthier, and gains shine. Mesotherapy is performed in a course of 3-6 procedures.
Exosomes: This technique promotes natural hair growth in two to three months. New hair growth can continue for up to a year, with the most noticeable results usually occurring six months after the start of treatment. The administration of exosomes and growth factors has been clinically proven to help regenerate and regrow hair as a treatment for hair loss in men and women in the early stages of hair loss. The introduction of exosomes prolongs the hair growth cycle. Hair follicles that are stuck in the resting phase enter the growth phase.
