has enjoyed much success in Europe and has only recently become available

to acquire this analyzer.
is a complete system which enables a capillary and scalp diagnosis to
be made by an accurate analysis of both hair and scalp. The information
is drawn from various questionnaires (the analytical and nutritional)
and a series of examinations and measurements. The Capillicare concept
sets up a personal file for the client which describes the capillary state,
supplies advice and the appropriate prescriptions in order to restore
proper capillary balance and optimum hygiene.
A. The Analytic Questionnaire This
questionnaire comprises fourteen separate pages of multiple choice questions
assembled in an easy to answer, user friendly format. The questions deal
with the general state of the hair and scalp. It also serves to help in
developing a capillary profile of the person and the impacts of an eventual
B. The Dietary Questionnaire This
questionnaire comprises fifty nine pages. These pages are illustrated
with color images for the choice of foods making the questions easily
answered. It is a complete dietary investigation which enables a diagnosis
regarding the lack of essential nutrients which are necessary for the
growth of hair.
II. The Exams and Measurements
Equipped with a top technology, the Capillicare concept is designed around
a work table including: a color video camera, the XY table of observation
and a kit to measure the sebum rate. These elements enable a user to perform
exams and measures such as:
A. The Capilloscopy The
capilloscopy is an exam which enables a visual and direct observation
of the hair and scalp of the client. Both the hair and scalp are directly
projected on the screen. These images are compared to a data bank of images
to make the diagnosis easier. The comparative results give the opportunity
to follow the evolution of the capillary profile of the client.
B. The Densitometry
The densitrometry is an exam of which enables a counting of the hair per
square centimeter. The picture which appears on the screen enables the
user to get an accurate count of the different kinds of bulbs (simple,
double, triple). The number of hairs per square centimeter is automatically
counted by the software. The exam can be done on 4 different areas of
the scalp, which appear simultaneously on the screen. The comparative
results allow for the accurate diagnosis of the client.
C. The Sebum rate The
measurement of the sebum uses a three piece kit to determine the rate
of sebum in the scalp: the lector, the slides and the applicator. The
slide is applied to the scalp using the applicator which guarantees a
similar pressure for all the measurements. The slide is placed in the
lector, then the software automatically measures the amount of sebum from
the sample on the slide.
D. The Trichogram The
Trichogram is an exam which enables control of the cycle of the capillary
growth. Some hair must be taken from the observed area then placed on
a mobile plate. Using the video camera, these hairs are examined then
classified according to their evolutionary stage (anagen, catagen, telogen).
The software automatically counts the anagen/telogen ratio. As with the
densitrometry, this exam can be performed on 4 areas of the scalp which
appear on the screen. The comparative results give the user the opportunity
to control the cycle of capillary growth of the client.
E. The Phototrichogram
The phototrichogram is a scientific control of the capillary cycle. A
small area of the scalp is shaved (1/2 of a square centimeter) and the
user takes a picture of the sample with the video camera. Three days later
another photo is taken of the sample area. When the two images are superimposed,
the user obtains the anagen/telogen ratio. Hair which have grown are in
the anagen stage whereas those which have not grown are in the telogen
F. The Camera The
Capillicare concept is equipped with a color video camera with 80x zoom.
Different lenses are available for different observation needs. The camera
can take a direct view on the scalp or view hair which is on the mobile
plate, as in the trichogram.
G. XY Table The
XY table is a guide on which the camera is placed for the observation
and analysis of the hair placed on the mobile plate.
H. The Sebum meter The
sebum meter is the kit for measuring the rate of sebum. It is comprised
of a lector (located above the joystick), an applicator and slides used
for the hair analysis. The slide is directly applied on the scalp, thanks
to the applicator which secures a similar pressure to the whole measures.
Once the slide has been introduced into the lector, the measure is automatically
done by the software.
Advice and Prescriptions
The Capillicare concept summarizes the answers given for the questionnaires
and the results of the measurements. A complete report is generated for
the client by the software. This
report includes a health and beauty capillary prescription with a list
of products specially adapted for the capillary profile of the client.
A. The client report The
client report contains two parts: the results of the exams and measurements
in the form of color images.
1. Personalized comments and
advice according to the capillary profile of the client.
2. For each part, general information
is given before speaking with the client and the precise needs of the
B. The prescriptions Developed
by a scientific team specializing in the capillary field, the product
line includes several products which optimize the capillary state of the
client. This product line is sold exclusively by Hansen Fontana following
the presentation of the Capillicare prescription.
who cannot naturally regenerate hair they once had may turn to surgical
and non-surgical hair replacement treatments. Results take time and
different sessions may be needed for each. We at Hansen Fontana believe
it is important to identify what the reasons are for your hair loss or
thinning hair prior to attempting a solution.
