Qualified Trichologist (IAT)
We specialise in Trichology.
richology is a science in the diagnosis and treatment of hair and scalp problems. It is classified as paramedical study covering all body systems, nutrition, chemistry and physiology of hair and scalp.
It involves the study of hair care processes, trichology preparations, massage and electrotherapy.
Trichologists are skilled clinicians in the assessment, diagnosis and management of hair and scalp afflictions. They form part of a multi-disciplinary team and work closely with other healthcare providers.
Eg. dermatologist, gynaecologist, endocrinologist, rheumatologist etc.
Unfortunately the study of Trichology isn’t available in South Africa, making it a scarce skill.
This allows for opportunistic companies to capitalise and exploit vulnerable individuals suffering from hair loss. Always verify your Trichologist/hair specialist qualifications. Hair Aesthetics is the only hair clinic in KZN to have a resident qualified Trichologist through the International Association of Trichology (IAT).
One would not allow an unqualified medical practioner to attend to ones general health so don’t risk the health of your hair and scalp. Seek professional advice.
