In most cases, hair is a barometer of general health, i.e. hair and scalp problems can be only a sign of more serious problems with your health. That is why it is very important to find a highly trained professional. Today there are many cheaters in the field, as such unfair scalp treatment operator aims are to earn more money and offer more procedures (in many cases unnecessary procedures). In some cases that can be even dangerous.
To avoid these problems you need to search for the certified specialist. There are different committees in each country which perform special certification in the sector of trichology. Certified scalp treatment operator aims his efforts at finding real problems of the patient and choosing an appropriate treatment for this problem. Besides, usual scalp treatment operator aims are to apply medications to scalp specialist and to advise a patient some other courses or consultations with other doctors, if the root of problem is elsewhere.
But along with such a strong demand for high trained professionals in trichology there are not so many colleges that have corresponding trichology programs. In most medical schools trichology is only a course of other programs and there are no special programs to train specialist in the field. But the number of trichology schools is increasing. You can find a complete list of available schools and colleges along with their programs on the internet. At the web site of International Trichologist Association or at the web sites of National Institutes of Trichologists you can find all that you might need. Of course, it is always better to check each program on the web page of the college because different programs are constantly changing and new courses are being added.
Finding a scalp treatment operator position is not very hard as the demand for specialists is high but the competition is not that strong because the number of qualified specialists is still pretty small. And as for the salary wage of the trichologist - working in the hospital it is possible to earn about $50,000 a year. Trichologists that work in different commercial clinics can make much more money depending on the number of their clients and their earnings can go up to $120,000 a year and even more. And anyway high qualification and certification in the field is usually needed for the scalp treatment operator position. So, think about that while choosing the actual college programs in the trichology. All the medical courses a college program has can seriously affect your future salary.
Some of the trichologist and scalp treatment operators are self-employed but it is pretty rare and most of them work in hospitals and clinics.
