Final Conclusion of Trichoscan & Photographic assessment By the Investigator “Prof. Trüeb, Zurich”

Results -Trichoscan

  • At 6 months, the benefit from Pantogar showed an additional improvement on anagen hair rate to 80.5%
  • The hair count, hair density and cumulative hair diameter were not significantly different from the baseline values in either group.
  • The data suggest that the therapeutic effect of Pantogar is due to an induction of anagen.
  • Anagen hairs grow 0.3 mm per day



  • Shaving an area of the scalp that is approximately 2 cm squared.
  • A video is taken at a magnification of 20 times after 2-3 days to the shaved area.
  • Images taken sequentially monitors before and after therapy, allows a detailed conclusion to be made about the success or failure of a therapeutic
