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?

Traditionally, pharmaceuticals have been developed using a “one-size-fits-all” approach with the assumption that medications work the same way regardless of the person taking them.

This forces most people to engage in a trial and error process to find the best medicine with the least amount of side effects.

Pharmacogenetics studies how people respond differently to drug therapy based upon their genetic makeup or genes. Diet, overall health, and environment also have significant influence on medication response, but none are stronger indicators of how you will process medication than your genetics.

DNA testing for hair loss and the insights derived from pharmacogenetics have transformed the approach to treating this common concern. By unraveling the genetic factors contributing to hair loss, individuals can now access personalized solutions that address their unique needs. Whether it’s identifying the most suitable oral medications or optimizing topical treatments, DNA testing and pharmacogenetics offer a path to more effective interventions.

As research continues to expand in this field, the future holds even greater promise for personalized solutions to combat hair loss and restore confidence to millions of hair loss sufferers.

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
  • Anti-androgens
  • Stimulation of circulation
  • Collagen synthesis
  • Insulin-like growth factors
  • Vitamins
  • Minerals
  • Antioxidants

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.

Wimblederm’s TrichoTest™ algorithm combines genetic data with relevant
patient’s anamnesis and possible contraindications to select the most appropriate
vehicles and active pharmaceutical ingredients.
