What is a hair and scalp analysis?
To identify hair loss, hair thinning, hair health and scalp conditions Really, Really Me use a live video microscope whereby magnified images of the scalp, hair, and hair follicles are viewed on an in-room monitor. The images are very detailed to show exactly what is or is not happening at scalp level (epidermis) and under the scalp (dermis).
