About Fagron TrichoTest™

TrichoTest™ provides personalized treatment recommendations for patients with scalp or hair problems (Androgenetic Alopecia, Alopecia Areata, and Telogen Effluvium).
It combines genetic data with relevant patient anamnesis and possible contraindications, selecting the most appropriate vehicles, active pharmaceutical ingredients and delivery formats such as topical, oral, and mesotherapy.

What does TrichoTest™ analyse?


26 genetic variations

associated with 9 categories
  • Prostaglandins and sulphotransferase
  • Anti-inflammatories drugs
  • Anti-androgens
  • Stimulation of circulation
  • Collagen synthesis
  • Insulin-like growth factor
  • Vitamins
  • Minerals
  • Antioxidants

Combines the analysis of 26 polymorphisms

associated with metabolic pathways predicting treatment responses with relevant patient’s anamnesis intolerances, hypersensitivity, diseases, medication, and blood pressure, among others.

The analysis of genetic factors and the patient’s anamnesis (medication, pathologies, emotional state, physical activity, habits and family history) provides the necessary information for fully personalized treatment.


Patient type and grade of alopecia

current medication, pathologies, intolerance, allergy, and physiological and emotional stress are taken into consideration through a questionnaire.

through secure online platform

Fagron TrichoTest™ algorithm combines genetic data with relevant
patient’s anamnesis and possible contraindications to select the most appropriate
vehicles and active pharmaceutical ingredients.
The results are downloaded directly from our secure online platform,

Detailed patient genetic report


Drug efficacy panel
The report shows on a color scale which compounds the algorithm recommends. Percentages and color scales indicate the level of efficacy of each Active Ingredient for the patient. Medications blocked due to intolerances or contraindications are shown in red.

Complete treatment approach
Topical - Oral - Mesotherapy

Its algorithm combines genetic data with relevant patient’s anamnesis and possible contraindications to select the most appropriate vehicles and active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) among a list of 11 vehicles and 62 APIs (Finasteride, Minoxidil, Latanoprost, 17-a Estradiol, Cetirizine, Spironolactone, Triamcinolone acetonide, among others).

Pharmacogenetic results
Genetic predisposition to anti-alopecic drugs and hair care supplements.


Personalized treatment and formulas

The most suitable formulations are selected considering the genetics, the type of alopecia, and the relevant history of the patient. All formulas have been tested and are suitable for compounding.
