Do you know what is causing your hair loss?

Most people don’t realise that there are many reasons for hair loss, hair breakage and scalp problems, such as lifestyle, diet, hormones, medication, hair care practices, autoimmune or genetic conditions. At the medical trichology consultation a comprehensive assessment and advice session is undertaken which usually takes 45 minutes. All follow up appointments within the first year are free of charge.

Visiting the GP can be helpful, but unforunately the majority of GPs in the UK have received minimal training on the diagnosis and treatment of hair loss (please see attached article for references).

This clinic benefits from a doctor who has been trained as a trichologist who is able to offer advice on the ways in which hair loss can be dealt with. Often a combination of approaches is needed.

This clinic is one of the first in the United Kingdom to offer a DNA test for hair loss which is a major breakthrough in personalising the most suitable treatments and is particularly useful in early hair loss.

This clinic aims to help you  get a diagnosis if you don’t get have one, find out the reasons,  and offer solutions based on  what is known to work.

The consultation includes advice on hiding the hair loss with camouflage products/wigs, advice on nutrition/supplements/devices/procedures and whether further advice/investigations/referral should be sought from a General Practitioner or dermatologist, and prescribing for a few hair loss conditions. This is done on the condition that communication with the GP is permitted, that identification is brought and that there is full discloure of medical history and medications taken.

There will also be the opportunity to discuss wigs and hairpieces. 

The clinic is able to offer blood tests, and swabs but encourages going back to the GP for these if needed as additional fees apply.

Who is a Trichologist?

A trichologist is a specialist in hair and scalp disorders. Most trichologists are not doctors and come from a range of backgrounds including hairdressing.  There are several different providers of Trichology Training in the UK with various lengths of training  and topics covered. It is not a regulated profession.

Why visit  this clinic?

This director is aware of the time constraints in General Practice (please see embedded article), and so this clinic recognises the additional support needed for people experiencing hair loss.

The clinic welcomes all genders and hair types, whether European, Asian or Afro-textured.

A combination of approaches is often needed to effectively tackle hair loss, so the clinic advises on evidence based treatments.  Treatment can be medical, cosmetic or lifestyle – particularly nutritional.

Platelet Rich Plasma therapy is available at the clinic for suitable patients with hair loss.
