What can the clinic do for hair loss?
There can often be several factors contributing to hair loss including general health, nutrition, genetics, medications and hair care practices. This clinic recommends an in depth consultation to find out the likely causes. Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic this will be conducted virtually with a brief face to face follow up as restrictions allow. Before the consultation, photographs of the hair and scalp from the front, top, sides and back need to be sent in, and a questionnaire needs to be completed. The available options will be discussed with you. These can include topical medications, cosmetic options, platelet rich plasma treatment, microneedling, information to take back to the GP, further blood tests recommended (these can be arranged privately).
Fagron Trichotest is a DNA test comes up with personalised recommendations for topical medications for specific types of hair loss. It does not diagnose the reason for hair loss. As the test does not cover all aspects of hair loss such as vitamin D and iron, in order to give the consumer the best service, this service is only offered in conjucntion with the consultation and follow up service.
This is often used to support the results of hair transplantation. It can be used for other reasons including those who are experiencing balding, alopecia areata, (an autoimmune hair loss condition) or telogen effluvium (hair shedding). Results can vary and may be subtle. It is recommended that a consultation is undertaken at the clinic first to ensure that this is the best option.
