Your Local Hair Loss Clinic in Vancouver

For those seeking a “hair analysis test near me” in Vancouver, you’ve landed at the right place – Cosmetic Club MD. 

We are a leading hair loss clinic in Vancouver, utilizing advanced diagnostic methods to uncover the reasons behind your hair loss. Furthermore, with the guidance of our Medical Director, Dr. Eli Akbari, a renowned Facial Plastic Surgeon, our team of hair specialists designs a personalized hair treatment plan for you based on your hair analysis results.

What Factors Contribute to Hair Loss?

Hair loss can result from various factors, from lifestyle habits to underlying health conditions. For instance, celebrities like Johnny Depp experienced hair loss due to his previous movie roles requiring constant hair alterations, while Selena Gomez suffered from hair loss caused by her battle with lupus.

Let’s delve into some common hair loss causes:

  • Nutrition– Unhealthy or restrictive diets can lead to nutritional deficiencies, contributing to hair loss.
  • Stress – Significant life events or pressures, such as exams, can trigger or exacerbate hair loss.
  • Health issues – Certain medical conditions, like COVID, diabetes, thyroid problems, or other illnesses, can cause hair loss.
  • Hormonal changes – Fluctuations in hormone levels during pregnancy, childbirth, and menopause can lead to hair loss.
  • Hair care habits – Excessive use of heat styling tools, harsh chemicals, or improper care can damage your hair and cause hair loss.

What is a Hair Analysis?

Step 1: Reviewing Your Medical History

During your consultation, our hair specialist will meticulously go through your medical history. They will evaluate factors such as the pattern of hair loss, family history of hair loss, and the onset of hair loss. Additionally, they will gather information about your diet, health conditions, stress levels, and other factors that could contribute to hair loss.



Step 2: Live HD Trichoscopy Examination

Next, we use a trichoscope. This advanced device provides a clear, magnified view of your hair follicles, hair strands, and scalp. It projects live images onto a screen, enabling both you and the hair specialist to assess the condition of your hair and scalp. This examination helps us make an accurate diagnosis based on the health of your hair follicles, individual hair strand thickness, and scalp health.

Step 3: Blood Test

To make sure we identify all potential hair loss factors, we also conduct a blood test. This test checks for micronutrient, mineral, and hormone abnormalities that could be contributing to hair loss. Our North Vancouver clinic tests up to 40 parameters in your blood for the hair loss assessment.


Step 4: Scalp Analysis and pH Testing

Did you know your body’s pH balance can impact various organ systems, including the scalp and hair growth? An imbalance in scalp pH might contribute to hair loss. That’s why we perform scalp pH testing specifically designed for hair loss. Our non-invasive pH probes provide real-time measurements of your scalp’s pH levels.
