Jetez un œil ci-dessous pour en savoir plus sur comment et pourquoi ce test innovant a été créé et comment il peut être utilisé.

O26 HairDNA™ - Traitements

Il y a trois questions importantes à considérer avant de choisir un traitement contre la perte de cheveux :

Les réponses à ces questions contribueront grandement à déterminer le succès de votre traitement contre la chute de cheveux. Cependant, c’est quelque chose que O26 HairDNA ™ peut aider à déterminer et ci-dessous, nous avons expliqué plus à ce sujet et la science derrière les traitements et les recommandations fournies par notre test innovant.


Hair loss treatments come in many shapes and sizes, including medications, vitamins and supplements, oils, shampoos, and everything in between. However, not all treatments are backed by scientific research, so it's important to understand the evidence behind each option.

Additionally, not all treatments work for everyone and even with scientifically proven treatments aimed at the correct underlying cause of hair loss, treatment success can still be determined by your genetics and style factors. life.

For example, a common and proven ingredient for hair loss is topical Minoxidil and numerous scientific studies indicate that Minoxidil has no effect on 20% of the world's population. Indeed, their genetics simply do not respond to this ingredient and therefore there is no positive effect on the treatment of hair loss.

The 7 Biogenetic Categories

The O26HairDNA scientific analysis focuses specifically on the 7 biogenetic categories related to the treatment of hair loss and can therefore identify if your genetics are likely to respond to this treatment and many others.

This means that not only can O26 HairDNA indicate whether or not a treatment is likely to work, it can also recommend alternative treatments that are more likely to be successful in addressing a particular underlying cause. This is a world first and a huge step forward in the treatment of hair loss.

These 7 biogenetic categories related to the treatment of hair loss and analyzed by O26HairDNA are listed below with some treatment examples:

About Hair Loss

Hair loss is common.

Hair loss (alopecia) is a progressive disease that has different forms and causes.

The most common type of hair loss, known as androgenetic alopecia, is hereditary. If left untreated, hair loss usually progresses over time.

80% of men suffer from androgenetic alopecia during their lifetime*.

40% of all women suffer from androgenetic alopecia during their lifetime*.

This will be sent to our labs where our specially trained technicians will analyze a total of 48 genetic variations from your DNA sample.

Detecting variations in DNA, called SNPs, helps our understanding of the specific characteristics of your metabolism that contribute to your hair loss.

All SNPs tested by Origin26 O26HairDNA have been scientifically validated by global research.

Within 14 days, your hair loss advisor or counselor will receive a report with your test results. This will tell you what parts of your genetic coding and lifestyle factors may be contributing to your hair loss and recommend effective hair loss treatment options.

What are the genetic variations analyzed by O26 HairDNA?

The genetic variations analyzed by O26 HairDNA are associated with 7 different categories of hair loss treatments:

  • Prostaglandin metabolism
  • Inflammation
  • Androgenic effect
  • Vasodilation and blood circulation
  • Synthesis of collagen
  • Deficiency in vitamins and minerals
  • Insulin metabolism

What is the relationship between the genes analyzed and the treatment options used for hair loss?

The association of the analyzed genes with hair loss treatment possibilities is based on more than 50 publications and scientific evidence.

What is included in the O26 HairDNA test kit?

Each kit contains:

  • 1x mouth swabs;
  • 2x informed consent forms;
  • 1 instruction manual.
  • A stamped return envelope
  • Each O26HairDNA test kit is identified by a unique identification number. A label with the identification number is placed on each swab tube, on the informed consent forms and in the outer part of the box.

An Informed Consent Form is a legal document signed by a patient that gives Origin26 permission to analyze their DNA sample. In addition, it must also be signed by the clinician, thus serving as a legal document for the pre and post genetic analysis consultation.

There are two copies of the informed consent form inside the box. One signed copy should be retained by the clinician and the other signed copy should be sent to Origin26. No sample will be processed by the laboratory without the corresponding signed informed consent form.

How are the samples obtained?

The amount of DNA needed for the analysis is obtained with a buccal swab. The procedure to obtain the sample is simple, painless and can be done at your home, in the clinician's office or in the consultation room.

How is the sampling process carried out?

The sampling process is simple and is also explained in detail in the instructions for use present in the kit.

Before sampling:

  • Patients should avoid eating, smoking, alcohol, drinking (water is the exception) or brushing their teeth at least 1 hour before scraping.
  • Patients are advised to rinse their mouth with water before scratching.
  • Informed consents must be completed and signed by the clinician and the patient.

When sampling:

  • Removing the swab from the swab tube.
  • The inner part of one of the cheeks should be scraped vigorously with the scraping end of the swab for 1 minute, while rotating the swab.
  • The scraping end of the swab should only contact the inside of the cheek.
  • The swab should be returned to the tube and closed.

How effective is O26 HairDNA?

O26 HairDNA provides comprehensive information about the hair loss genetic profile of their patients. The genetic characteristics evaluated can influence the effect of certain treatments used against hair loss. To support the clinician, an O26HairDNA report is created for each patient, providing personalized hair loss treatment suggestions.

The suggested formulations generated in the O26 HairDNA reports are supported by the literature.

What is the expected wait time until the results are received?

The DNA analysis process is complex. The results should be sent approximately 4 weeks after receipt of the sample at our laboratory. This includes the time needed to process the sample and generate a custom report.

How are the results shared?

The results report will be delivered to the clinician directly via the Origin26 online platform. The report can be generated in several languages.

Are the results reliable?

The technology used to analyze DNA is widely validated as a platform for genetic studies, with reproducibility and specificity rates of approximately 99%. Origin26 laboratory technicians are specially trained for this type of analysis and analyze thousands of samples each year, having extensive experience in this process.

If it's such a reliable process, how come sample quality sometimes fails?

Although the methodology used is the best currently available, it may happen that the sample does not contain enough DNA and it is not possible to provide a reliable result. This could be due to many factors, such as the sampling process was not carried out correctly or the sample was not kept under proper temperature conditions before or during shipment.

If the process failed, is it necessary to purchase a new test?

No, in this case a new batch of swabs will be sent without the kit box, to take a new sample from the patient. If the online check-in has already been carried out previously, it will no longer be necessary. A repeat test will be offered free of charge.

What will the results tell the patient?

O26 HairDNA results tell the patient what type of genetic mutation they carry and how lifestyle factors contribute to their hair loss. O26 HairDNA will then provide several recommendations on the best possible treatment to counter the genetic mutation and the patient's lifestyle.

What are the patient's treatment options?

The results obtained with O26 HairDNA provide an indication of the potential effectiveness of the types of hair loss treatment. Treatment is based on the type of genetic mutation the patient has. The patient's treatment is then optimized using the most effective ingredient, treatment procedure and application.

How does the patient access his personalized treatment?

Personalized treatments are provided through a hair loss clinic, there are two types of treatment, one that requires a prescription and one that does not. The hair loss consultant or counselor will be able to provide information on how to get treatment.

Can I get tested through my GP instead?

The test is only available through hair loss and aesthetic clinics. Please use our website to find the clinic.

Can I take the test online?

The report generated by O26 HairDNA is complex and should be interpreted by a clinician or hair loss specialist. This is why the test is only available at hair loss and aesthetic clinics. Please use our website to find the nearest clinic to arrange an O26 HairDNA.

Is it guaranteed to work?

The test is based on global research and is 99.9% accurate. The test determines the cause of your hair loss and recommends the treatment options most likely to work for you. We cannot guarantee that every treatment option will be successful as there are many variables to consider. You should discuss this with your clinician or hair loss treatment expert.

How much will a treatment cost?

The cost of your hair loss treatment will depend on the type of treatment you have. You should discuss treatment options and prices with your clinician or hair loss treatment expert.

Can the test be used on women?

Yes, O26 HairDNA can be used by everyone, regardless of age, gender or race.
