Microscopy

The use of microscopes allows us to see many things regarding your life style through a sample of your hair, guiding us towards a potential solution. It does not bring back your hair, but allows us to find a way to improve the quality and quantity. Something as simple as poor diet and stress can affect the condition of your hair, and this can be detected by the microscopy process.

The optical microscope uses visible light and a system of lenses to magnify images of hair samples. This new design of microscopes uses a CCD camera, allowing the image to be shown directly on a computer screen.

We use this technology to assess the condition of your scalp and hair follicles. This allows us to see problems occurring before the hair penetrates through the scalp. We can then treat any problems at the source rather than having to wait until the hair has grown through the follicle, or even having to identify why the hair is not growing at all.

Once the problem is identified we can offer a prescription of products based on our findings because efficient hair care is based on the individual condition of the scalp, as well as on the development phases of the hair. Advanced Appearance now use the Methode Regenerante range from La Biosthetique. These scalp and shampoo products strengthen and support the hair’s natural lifecycle, balancing out any nutritional deficits in the hair roots and resulting in full, healthy and shiny hair.

A microscopic consultation costs £30.00 and consists of the extraction of 15 - 20 hairs from the head which are then analysed. You can see the findings on the computer screen and the biosthetician will go through the results with you and explain what is causing your hair problems, offering a prescription of products to help them.
