The Basics: In-office, we remove 4 strands of hair and examine them with a special S-Drive that analyzes the bulbs. With the At-Home test, the comprehensive, all-inclusive kit is mailed directly to you. It comes with very detailed instructions. The video on the left shows the easy process. Once you have gathered the sample as directed, you return it in the packaging provided back to the lab for bio-mapping.
The Science: Epigenetic technology allows us to understand the connections our diet, behavior, and environment has on our hair, skin, and nails. The hair bulb is the thriving part of the hair strand making it an excellent bio-marker. The bulb feeds from the blood vessels acting as a receiver that is constantly identifying environmental and nutritional markers.
