Trichology News

The bridge between cosmetology and dermatology.

What is Trichology?

Trichology is the para-medical science of the hair, hair loss and associated scalp problems. It encompasses the study of the diseases of the human hair and scalp, as well as the assessment of the cause(s) and treatment of these disorders. The word “trichology” comes from the Greek word, ‘Trikhos’, meaning ‘hair’, and was first conceived as a specialty branch of study in Britain in the late 19th century. It then became a specific para-medical discipline in 1902. Today, trichology is perceived as the “bridge between cosmetology and dermatology.”

World Trichology Society Chairman
Following the recent World Congress of the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS), I browsed through their impressive program and excellent website and noted that the membership is angry about physicians with little or no training perform-ing hair transplants. There are dentists, gynecologists, ophthalmologists and others from non-surgical backgrounds taking up the knife and cutting into people’s scalps. Often, these physicians either have had no training, or only taken a short online course. This has led to an abundance of patients with either terrible looking hair transplants, scalp infections, or worse. This shows poorly on legitimate hair-surgeons, giving the field a bad name. The ISHRS, quite rightly, want hair-surgeons to be properly trained and certified.
