WHAT IS IT:
Test to identify which hair loss treatments are most likely to provide the best results for you. It is a one-time only test as genetic results do not change during your life time.

- Clients with a family history of hair loss
- Clients who would like to know the role of their genetics on their hair
The process begins with a simple saliva (buccal) swab taken to obtain a sample of your DNA. When the analysis is complete approximately 6 weeks after, a digital report is generated and sent securely to your trichologist for them to review with you

No more than 1 hour 30 minutes
A one-time only test

What is Trichology?
Trichology is the science behind having healthy hair and scalp and deals with disorders involving the anatomy and physiology of hair.
What is a Trichologist?
A qualified Trichologist is a specially trained professional who has studied the hair and scalp, their structures, diseases and functions.
Why visit a Trichologist?
One of the most common reasons for visiting a qualified Trichologist is hair loss; the impact of hair loss to a person’s mental and emotional health can be devastating. A qualified Trichologist will be able to help with problems that may not fall into the category of an ‘illness’, which can sometimes confuse healthcare professionals.
Are Trichologists just glorified hairdressers?
Absolutely not. Trichology and hairdressing are very different, the only common link being hair. Hairdressing is for cosmetic reasons, fashion and grooming. Clinical Trichology is diagnostic and therapeutic and underpinned by medical training and scientific knowledge. Not surprisingly, some Trichologists do come from a hairdressing background but, equally, many do not.
I have been seeing Ben for a few months and have been really impressed with his work and support. He is highly knowledgeable about hair loss and has been brilliant in proposing a range of treatment options. Each stage of the treatment process is fully explained in terms that help me understand the issues and make informed decisions about the best way to proceed and achieve the outcomes I am hoping for. Using DNA profiling and cutting edge techniques, I am very pleased with the results so far. He was recommended to me by a friend and I only wish I had found him sooner.
I went for my first appointment with apprehension but I needn't have worried as on meeting Ben realised that he wasn't scary at all but kind and caring. He is an expert in Trichology and has the ability to share his expertise by giving helpful information in a way that put me at ease and made me feel better able to cope with my scalp problem. Ben advised a treatment at the Salon, where I met Sabrina who did the treatment and who was also kind and friendly.
I hope to be continuing to get help from Ben in the future.
Ben is very easy to talk to. The consultation was easy and not rushed. I have lived with alopecia for many years however recently things have progressed beyond a manageble level. I know how upsetting it feels not to be in control of the situation and how easy it would be to part with money out of desperation, however Ben did not coerce me into expensive treatments or products, instead suggested, and made me comfortable about making small changes to begin with and monitoring for a while before deciding anything further. He also offered to speak directly to my hairdresser regarding colouring techniques to protect my scalp during root tints and offered a check up free of charge in between appointments.
This compounded my confidence in him and believe that he is truly passionate in doing the best he can for his clients.
After a very disappointing and unhelpful consultation with a dermatologist, I decided to research trichologists. I'm so glad I found Ben! His approach is nurturing, friendly, thorough and scientific - much more than my dermatologist was. He helped me see things clearer than I have in a long time. I'd happily recommend Ben to anyone for hair and scalp issues!
Ben was very welcoming and kind, putting me at ease very quickly. His calm and professional manner is second to none and he takes the time to explain things properly to you. Would highly recommend if anyone is worried about hair loss, don't give up , talk to someone who actually understands hair.
