Trichoscopy, or dermoscopic examination of the scalp, is a very useful diagnostic method of scalp examination that enables the differentiation of different causes of alopecia.
The method is completely painless and enables a detailed analysis of the scalp and hair.
Trichoscopic examination of the scalp is great because it does not require patient preparation. We can formulate a diagnosis without a scalp biopsy.

With trichoscopy, we can visualize hair structures, hair follicle openings, perifollicular epidermis, and small skin blood vessels. We consider the changes in each of these parameters alongside the clinical picture, and with the help of trichoscopy, we can diagnose the exact scalp disease. Trichoscopy also allows us to follow the progression of the patient’s treatment.
