What is HairCheck?


HairCheck® is a quick, painless, non-invasive way to measure and track the amount and quality of hair growing in a given area of the scalp (called the Hair Mass Index, HMI, “HairNumber,” or “HairScore”). The HairCheck device is a highly sensitive hand-held ‘trichometer,’ which scientifically measures hair caliber and hair density together and expresses them as a single number by compressing and measuring a defined hair bundle. It can also measure the percentage of hair breakage, which is a common cause of hair loss. Tracking these numbers can help determine the extent of hair loss and/or breakage and, over time, allows the tracking of results from treatments.

The validity of HairCheck, also called “cross-sectional hair bundle measurement,” and the stereotactic tool used to go back to exactly the same area of the scalp without having to make a tattoo or other marking after an appropriate interval of treatment has been the subject of many peer-reviewed articles and medical presentations.  Hundreds of professionals have been trained in the use of the HairCheck tool and medical hair loss management treatment protocols through the HairCoach certification program.

Patients are typically quite happy to find out that HairCheck measurements take about five to ten minutes to perform, are painless, and require no trimming of the existing hair.  At Bauman Medical, HairCheck visits are complimentary for existing patients.
