Hair loss is a common concern that affects millions of people worldwide, regardless of age or gender. While there are various factors that contribute to hair loss, including genetics, lifestyle, and hormonal changes, recent advancements in pharmacogenetics and DNA testing have revolutionised our understanding of this complex issue.
By analyzing our genetic makeup, researchers have uncovered valuable insights into the causes of hair loss and have developed personalized treatments that cater to an individual’s unique genetic profile.
At Wimblederm, we test 13 genes and 48 genetic variations of your DNA to learn which are related to your alopecia hair loss.
What Are Pharmacogenetics?
DNA test £299
The test includes your personalised report on your pharmacogenetics.
Wimblederm uses the Trichotest to evaluate your DNA in relation to hair loss from our clinic in Wimbledon Village.
The DNA test
Wimblederm is an authorised clinic that performs the Fagron DNA tests.
The TrichoTest™ provides personalized treatment recommendations for patients with scalp or hair problems (Androgenetic Alopecia, Alopecia Areata, and Telogen Effluvium).
It combines genetic data with relevant patient anamnesis and possible contraindications, selecting the most appropriate vehicles, active pharmaceutical ingredients and delivery formats such as topical, oral, and mesotherapy.
What does TrichoTest™ analyse?
Genetic variations are carefully examined
The genetic variations are associated with 9 categories
- Prostaglandins and sulphotransferase
- Anti-inflammatory drugs
- Stimulation of circulation
- Collagen synthesis
- Insulin-like growth factors
The test combines the analysis of 26 polymorphisms associated with metabolic pathways predicting treatment responses with relevant patient’s anamnesis intolerances, hypersensitivity, diseases, medication, and blood pressure, among others.
The analysis of genetic factors and the patient’s anamnesis (medication, pathologies, emotional state, physical activity, habits and family history) provides the necessary information for fully personalized treatment.
You will recieve a personalized report.
