Frequently asked questions

By the trichological examinations, similar to the dermatologicals, the first step is when the trichologist examines the scalp with naked eyes, and detects the abnormalities and skin disorders. Unfortunately not all of the disorders can be seen by naked eyes, and even some extremely pathologic lesions can not be rocognised without a magnifying glass.



But thanks to the technological progress, nowdays there are several high-resoluted camera systems available in medical diagnoses, so as in trichology. Our special instrument, called the microcamera is a high-resolution imaging system, which was developed specially for dermatological testing. The main principle of the microcamera is that it can light the target area with three or four halogen lamps, which emit cold light. Thanks to this technology, the camera is capable of making an almost 300-400x magnification and exteriorize the image to the screen. The main benefit of the cold light, is that during an examination when we must place the camera as close to the skin as it is possible, the skin can not be exposed to high heat effect.
