Crewe Hair and Skin Clinic

Dr Ingrid Wilson MB ChB BSc(Hons) MPH FFPH MTTS IAT

After personal experience of hair loss,  and realising the major impact it could have,  Dr Wilson began a journey of learning about hair  and scalp issues.Working as a GP, she has  been aware that most UK GPs have only one week of training in skin and hair before they qualify. Unable to find a suitable in depth course at the time for GPs, she completed the 2 year Trichology Course with the Institute of Trichologists gaining a distinction in both years, being the only student in her cohort to do so. She was also awarded the John Mason Memorial Prize for Excellence in her first year, which is only awarded when there is a ‘candidate of high enough calibre to merit it’. 

She has taught examined and consulted at the Institute of Trichologists’ Clinic in London and also gained further experience helping patients with hair loss independently, including at a branch of The Private Clinic of Harley Street. She has written articles on hair loss for a range of audiences and spoken at various events.  She remains a practising GP, is a member of the Primary Care Dermatology Society and a Fellow of the Faculty of Public Health.

She believes that it is important to be knowledgeable about the hair processing techniques in Afro-textured hair which has different requirements to European/Asian hair. She was certified in 2015 by the National Beauty Institute in: Hair Cutting,Hair Braiding and Weave, Afro hair relaxer and the Brazilian Blow Dry.

Aesthetics training

After personal experience of needing skin camouflage to cover loss of pigmentation, Dr Wilson trained in skin camouflage and is a British Association of Skin Camouflage practitioner.  The clinic is part of the Veil Skin camouflage network and the Extreme Make up network to reduce delays in customers accessing their skin camouflage products.

The skin camouflage training stimulated an interest in the solutions that aesthetic procedures offer so she trained further in  electrolysis with VTCT and Sterex, and also has the  BTEC Level 7 award for Laser and Associated light therapies, she hopes to be able to offer this service in the future.

Training in Botulinum toxin injections was completed in 2011, and she maintains contact with colleagues in field through membership of a local practitioners group and the Aesthetic Complications Expert Group which supports aesthetic pracititioners across the country.

Dr Wilson is a strong believer in the importance of skin care for managing skin concerns including acne, pigmentation, razor bumps, rosacea and wrinkles and undertakes regular training with Obagi Medical and Zo Skin health in order to continue to deliver skin care programmes.
