At Mane Image, our advanced techniques and treatments allow us to get to the root of your hair loss. By thoroughly understanding the causes and factors, our certified hairstylists can provide a precision hair loss treatment plan tailored to your needs. Epigenetic testing is the future of hair restoration and can help you live your best life.

What Is Epigenetic Testing?

The word epigenetic means "above genetics." This type of testing goes beyond looking at the DNA of individuals. Standard genetic testing, which we are accustomed to, identifies changes in chromosomes, genes, and proteins. These results can confirm or eliminate the possibility of genetic conditions that may be contributing to your hair loss. You cannot do anything to change your DNA sequence, and that is okay.

However, lifestyle and environmental factors can be changed, which are the heart and soul of epigenetics. Behaviors, habits, and environment impact how genes work and are expressed. What you eat, how you exercise, where you live, and your genetic makeup can change how your body reads your DNA sequence. These are factors you control and can change as much or as little as you want.

How Does Epigenetic Testing Work?

Our clients' comfort is our number one priority here at Mane Image. Epigenetic testing is a straightforward and non-invasive process done right in the office. There is no need to visit a third-party testing center. Your certified hairstylist will carefully harvest three or four hair follicles from an inconspicuous area (No need to worry about a bald spot). That's it! Your part is over. Once the results are in, your hairstylist will discuss the findings in detail with you. They will then be used when customizing your hair restoration plan. As you can see, it is a very easy test that can provide valuable information.

How Epigenetic Testing Helps with Hair Loss

Causes of hair loss can be complex with multiple contributing factors and therefore require in-depth analysis. Epigenetic test results reveal the effects the environment has on your hair loss. Your hairstylist will suggest lifestyle changes you can make to slow or stop the progression of hair loss and promote natural hair growth. For example, results may show that eating healthier foods will provide your hair follicles with adequate amounts of the nutrients they need to grow healthy strands of hair. Another instance may be that avoiding certain hair care products will encourage a healthy scalp, which in turn promotes hair growth. The possibilities are limitless, but one thing is certain: you will learn so much about your hair and scalp health through epigenetic testing. The information provided will arm you with the knowledge you need for lifelong proper hair and scalp care.
