Why choose this clinic?
Crewe Hair and Skin Clinic is primarily a hair loss clinic specialising in non-surgical hair restoration. The approach is based on a bespoke consultation service which helps people to understand what is causing their hair loss, providing customers with bespoke treatment plans which involve informing them about what the best evidence is on their condition. The clinic recognises that for some people with hair loss, spending time with them to help understand the multiple causes of hair loss and what can be done to manage it is crucial. It provides an alternative to hair transplantation which at best is not a permanent hair loss solution, and at worst can accelerate hair loss.

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 consultation can take place both virtually and 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 conjunction with the consultation and follow up service.
This is often used to support the results of hair transplantation and medical hair loss treatment. It is useful for people 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. This should be seen as an adjunct to hair loss treatment plans.
The Pharma Hermetic Hair Recovery Programme has been introduced to help people with hair loss during lockdown. The Hair Recovery clinic treatment is a stronger version of what is used at home and uses microneedling. The Hair Recovery Programme SP55 is a cosmetic topical solution designed for people suffering hair loss that works from the surface of the scalp to support the stem cells in the hair follicle. HRP SP55 aims to reduce the inflammation of the hair follicle and provide a better supply of key ingredients for healthy hair growth. In clinic treatments can be undertaken weekly in between Platelet Rich Plasma Treatments.
