Basic Diagnostic Program

At first glance it may seem that the symptoms of hair loss are the same, but the results of scientific research show that the causes of diseases of the scalp or hair loss are individual and different. Therefore, the most important in the treatment of hair loss is to clarify the causes of hair loss, and then the selection of individual treatment for each patient based on the state of the scalp and hair.

STEP 1.Scalp Analysis

  • Computer Microscopy Analysis (Hair Diagnosis System HDM):
    The thickness and quantity of hair / secretion of sebum / condition of the hair follicles / Number of cornfield particles / condition of the scalp and blood vessels / presence of inflammation on the scalp.

STEP 2.Scalp & Hair Structure Analysis

  • Computer Microscopy Analysis (Hair Diagnosis System HDM):
    The state of the follicle / The presence of weakened hair follicle / hair melanin level / hair shaft condition and its structure.

STEP 3.Stress Level Analysis

  • The test is conducted using bio-electric meter impulses during 5 minutes. Electrodes are applied to the wrists and to the lower part of the left leg shin.
    Reference:Staying in a state of anxiety and stress for a long time knocks down the immune system, circulatory system, digestive system, autonomic and nervous system.

STEP 4.Filling in a Medical Questionnaire

  • The questionnaire data allows to collect complete information about the state of health of the patient, hereditary factors, taking medication, medical history, surgical interventions, determine your lifestyle and presence of harmful habits.
  • On patient's request in the LMW Oriental Clinic it is also possible to carry out a detailed analysis of the hair age and condition.

STEP 5.Dr. Lee’s Personal Examination & Final Diagnosis

  • All diagnostic data is transmitted Dr. Lee Moon Won to issue recommendations, explain the causes of hair loss, and select the appropriate treatment method.

* Costs & Fees: Basic diagnostic analysis - 50,000 KRW.

Optional Diagnostic Analysis

Optional Diagnostic Analysis allows precisely determine the cause of hair loss and identify improper body functions that directly affect the skin and hair.

Blood Test

  • Blood cells | WBC (white blood cells or leukocytes), RBO (erythrocytes)
  • Anemia | Hemoglobin, Hematocrit (HCT), MCV, MCH, MCHC
  • Platelets (thrombocytes) | PLT
  • Liver function tests | COT, OPT, ALP (Alkaline phosphatase), Cholesterol, Glucose, Total Bilirubin
  • Cardiac function | BUN, Creatinine

Hormone Test

  • Male hormone | testosterone
  • Female hormone | estrogen
  • Thyroid | T3, T4, TSH
  • Cortisol | DHEA free cortisol
  • Hormone of alopecia | SA, DHT, insulin

Each type of additional examinations and consultations are carried out for an additional charge.
*Appointment with a doctor bringing your analysis results from other clinics is available.

Complete Diagnostic Analysis

(Determination hair age and causes of hair loss)

  • Diagnostics of the hair shaft
  • Determining the level of hair loss progressiveness.
  • Determining the degree of alopecia
  • Color of hair

Identifying the causes of hair loss:

  • Hair condition and the estimation of hair coverage density.
  • Evaluation of stress level 1 (autonomic nervous system)
  • Evaluation of stress level 2 (stress hormone)
  • Blood test (liver and cardiac function, anemia, lipids and so forth.)
  • Thyroid function
  • Hormones (male, female)
  • General Survey (metabolism, protein and electrolytes metabolism, body acidity).

Hair and scalp evaluation:

  • Dynamics of changes in the diameter of hair thickness.
  • Hair Damage Assessment
  • Condition of the hair root
  • Evaluation of the cuticle
  • The dryness of hair
  • Color of hair
  • Condition of the hair bulb

Test Results (after 2 days) if necessary, the repeated examination on the basis of the data analysis is proceeded:

  • Dynamics of changes in the diameter of hair thickness.
  • Hair root assessment
  • Diameter of hair thickness
  • Progress of hair loss 2
  • Hair Damage Assessment
  • Assessment of the strength and elasticity of the hair shaft
  • Assessment of hair coverage condition
  • Assessment of the state, taking into account the density of hair growth
  • Assessment of hair dryness
  • Assessment of stress resistance state
  • Full assessment of hair condition 2
