In the realm of hair care and restoration, understanding the connection between scalp health and hair health is important. When patients come to the Quatela Center for Hair Restoration looking for answers about why their hair is thinning or receding, they are not only able to meet with our physicians who specialize in both surgical and nonsurgical hair restoration options, but also certified trichologist and nurse practitioner, Stacie.

What is Trichology?

Trichology, the scientific study of the hair and scalp, delves deep into the complexities of hair loss, scalp conditions, and overall hair health. It combines elements of dermatology, nutrition, stress levels, medications, genes and physiology to provide holistic solutions for individuals grappling with hair-related concerns.

A certified trichologist is someone who has expertise in hair and scalp disorders. The knowledge and training behind trichology is another tool to comprehensively help patients who are concerned with hair thinning and loss. Stacie looks at things like dandruff, psoriasis, and eczema. All those things affect your scalp in indirect ways. Optimizing scalp health gives your hair the best environment in which to grow. The Information gained through this analysis allows the physicians to customize the best treatment plan for each patient based on their current scalp and hair health, along with their goals.
