Miyohara International is the premier trichology clinic in the US. Founded and owned by Erkkie Harris-Wells, a British/French trained trichologist of 25 years, Miyohara strives to be the crème del la crème. Trichology is the science that studies hair and its diseases.
Trichologists are skilled professionals that diagnose and treats all types of hair loss and scalp disorders. Trichology is growing in popularity and is quickly becoming the preferred treatment due to its high success rate and non-surgical delivery. Hair loss treatments offered by plastic surgeons, dermatologists, or chemical-based products like Rogaine or Propecia cannot solve many forms of hair loss and most importantly, do not find the root cause of the problem. Each professional has their own speciality, but it is important to know which one a consumer should seek out.
Plastic surgeons perform hair loss surgery on both men and women that have MPB/FPB by removing donor hair taken from the sides and the back of the head. From here, surgeons transplant the papilla bulbs in the front of the hairline and the top vertex area of the head and crown. This can be a good alternative to cover the thinning in such areas. Under the supervision of a skilled surgeon, this could be a great option for genetic hair loss.
Dermatologist are another option for treating hair loss and/or scalp maladies. If you are losing hair due to certain skin disorders on the scalp, most doctors take biopsies to test for fungus or certain diseases that can proliferate in the skin, causing one to lose hair excessively. Dermatologist may also administer medications if they see the need to do so. With certain steroids in pill form, cream, or injections can be applied directly into the scalp if they see that the patient is suffering from an auto-immune problem, which is precipitating the thinning of the hair.
Trichologist treat hair loss clients that can fall in any of the above categories in a more natural, holistic way. These treatments are equally effective and beneficial to any client as the above mentioned. Most patients need their scalp to be in the best condition to ensure great harvesting in transplanting hair to the vertex area, proper scalp treatments can assist with this process, leaving less scarring and scalp crustacean. Here at Miyohara International this is how we help service our referring plastic surgeons with their patients.
