Led by the Medical Director, Dr. Eli Akbari, an award-winning Facial Plastic Surgeon, our hair specialist offers a tailored hair treatment plan based on the results of the hair analysis.

What causes hair loss?

There can be many causes of hair loss. For example, Keira Knightley a famous celebrity, lost her hair due to excessive hair coloring, while Tyra Banks developed patchy hair loss due to stress.

Here are the common hair loss causes:

  • Diet – Restrictive or unhealthy eating patterns can lead to nutritional deficiencies that cause hair loss. 
  • Stress – Stressors such as exams and other life events can trigger or worsen hair loss.
  • Health conditions – It is common to experience hair loss as a result of a health condition such as COVID, diabetes, thyroid issues, or other illnesses.
  • Postpartum hair loss- Hormonal fluctuations during pregnancy, childbirth, and menopause can trigger hair loss.
  • Hair care regimen – Excess heat, dryness, or chemicals can all damage your hair.

What is hair-loss analysis?

In simple terms hair-loss analysis is a set of comprehensive tests, medical history taking, and image analysis used to treat the underlying cause of hair-loss. 

At Monarch MD, our hair analysis is amongst the most comprehensive tests in Vancouver. In other words, the hair-loss analysis you receive at our West Vancouver and North Vancouver clinic is as close to gold standard as you can get. Our hair-loss analysis process consists of three main steps:

  1. Medical history.
  2. Live high-definition (HD) view of your hair follicles, hair strands, and scalp.
  3. Blood Test.

Step 1. Your medical history

Once you book a consultation with us, our hair specialist will go over your medical history in detail. This includes evaluating these factors:

  • The pattern of hair loss
  • Whether hair loss runs in your family
  • When the hair loss began

The hair specialist will also delve into more details to understand hair loss causes including your diet, health condition, stress levels, and so on. 

Step 2: Live HD Trichoscopy Examination

At Monarch MD, we use a trichoscope to view hair loss objectively. The magnified scope projects live images onto a TV, giving you and the hair specialist a clear view of your hair health.

  1. Hair follicle health
  2. Individual hair strand thickness
  3. Scalp health

Paired with the medical history evaluation, the detailed hair analysis using the trichoscope allows us to arrive at a precise hair loss diagnosis.

Step 3: Blood Test

We leave no stone unturned to discover hair loss causes! We also do a blood test (click here to see what’s included in the blood test) to see if additional factors such as micronutrient, mineral, and hormone abnormalities are contributing to hair loss. In our Vancouver office we test up to 40 parameters in your blood for hair-loss analysis. 

 Step 4: Scalp analysis and pH testing. 

Your body pH balance can impact many organ systems including the scalp and hair growth or hair-loss. An imbalance in the pH scalp might contribute to hair-loss. In our Vancouver clinic, we are one of the only centers that perform a scalp pH testing specifically designed for hair-loss. We have special probes that give the pH of your scalp in real-time without any need for invasive tests. A probe is simple placed on your scalp and the pH measurement is read.

 Step 5: Treatment Plan

After reviewing the results, our Medical Director Dr. Eli Akbari, draws up a customized hair loss treatment plan based on your aesthetic goals. This can include non-surgical hair treatments, nutritional supplements, and other treatments.

Our comprehensive hair loss treatment addresses the root cause of hair loss. For example, if your hair loss is caused by a genetic predisposition and a micronutrient deficiency, we will address both.
