For greater accuracy, you can send us your digital photos by email (via a digital camera or scanner). In order to be as precise as possible, we require a definition of greater than 1 MB (300 – 600 Kb), using macro and at a distance of between 30 and 50 cm. If possible, take the photos without flash, in a lighted area and and with a white or pale clear background.
We need 8 photos which must include photos taken from the following angles:
- Frontal: close-up and further away: close-up to see clearly the front hair-line and further away to see how the front hair-line fits in with the rest of the patients features, always bearing in mind the real age of the front hair-line (as in the natural front hair-line for for each age group).
- Right and left-hand sides (including the hair-line): the lateral lines are never symmetrical. Also, the FUE technique takes advantage of the sides and converts them into donor areas.
- From above: to determine the general degree of hair-loss.
- From behind: to evaluate the donor area.
