Analysis & Assessment

Hair & Scalp Analysis

A professional hair and scalp analysis presents important evidence that can define the scope of hair loss. Most importantly, it helps us find the best possible treatment solutions. The procedure is completely safe and non-invasive. We simply use a ProScope micro camera and software that can analyze your current hair growth status. This micro camera looks very closely at the hair follicles, letting us observe any signs of future hair growth and hair loss.

To make sure we stay up-to-date on how your hair and scalp are responding to treatment, during your course of treatments at AHA, we’ll monitor your hair regrowth progress via regular photography and scalp examinations.

HairCheck™

Haircheck is a new patented technology that provides the answers to all your hair loss and hair breakage questions. It’s a scientific instrument designed to precisely and accurately measure hair loss, growth and breakage on any area of the scalp. It has some very exciting benefits:

  1. No hair needs to be cut.
  2. Testing only takes about 5 minutes.

When hair loss or breakage is detected, our team can measure the response to take-home products and treatments and make appropriate suggestions that’ll work best for you.

Hair Mineral Analysis

HMA is a safe and non-invasive test. It measures the levels and comparative ratios of nutrient and toxic minerals found in hair. HMA is regarded by many doctors, naturopaths and nutritional therapists as one of the most valuable screening tools available in everyday and preventative health care.

Why are nutrient and mineral levels so important? Many health conditions are aggravated by mineral imbalances and toxic metal excesses, including cardiovascular disease, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, migraines, hair loss, skin disorders, learning difficulties and hyperactivity in children, to name just a few.
