Differences Between a Dermatologist and Trichologist

Have you considered consulting with a professional about your scalp disorder or hair loss? If so, do you know the difference between a Dermatologist and a Trichologist?


The difference between a Dermatologist and a Trichologist is that a Dermatologist specializeds in skin disorders while a Trichologist specializes in several forms of alopecia and scalp disorders. A Trichologist also networks with Medical Doctors, Internal Medicine Doctors, Endocrinologists, Neurologists, Psychologists, Nutritionists, Naturopathic Doctors, Dermatologists, Cosmetologists and Barbers.

There are some systemic conditions that require other medical treatments and/or therapy, combined with alopecia and scalp disorder treatments. A few important comparisons are listed below:

DERMATOLOGIST
  • Listens to client for signs and symptoms, may not examine the scalp thoroughly
  • May give steroid injections to scalp
  • May suggest a biopsy
  • May write a prescription
  • Usally informs patient to stop all chemical processes
TRICHOLOGIST
  • Will obtain the history of the alopecia and scalp disorder
  • Analyzes signs and symptoms
  • Looks for scalp lesions and pimples
  • Looks for erythematic and inflammation
  • Looks for scaly scalp disorders
  • Looks for alopecia and/or damaged hair follicles
  • Will use microscopes to analyze scalp health and hair bulb
  • Will evaluate nutritional deficiencies associated with disorder
There are currently over 30 million Americans who suffer from some scalp disorders or alopecia (hair loss) condition. When you are affected with alopecia or a scalp disorder condition, seek the expertise of a Trichologist; who takes an integrative approach to resolving disorders.
