Hair loss can cause great anxiety and distress, there are many misunderstandings about its causes and treatments, with few clinical practioners who specialise in the hair and scalp. A Trichologists is unique in the fact that their entire specialism focuses just on the hair and scalp.

The conditions that are commonly treated in our clinic are; Male pattern baldness, Female hair loss, Patchy hair loss, Diffuse hair shedding, Seborrhoeic eczema, Contact dermatitis, Psoriasis, Scaling conditions, Itching scalp, Folliculitis, Scalp Infections, and Afro/Caribbean conditions.

The Consultation Process

The consultation process is very thorough and may take up to an hour. During the consultation all aspects of your scalp/hair problem will be discussed at length to determine the correct diagnosis of your condition. The Trichologist will go through your full medial history, and discuss a range of aspects of your lifestyle. This can include: your diet, family history, any stress you may be under and any medications you may be on. The Trichologist will then conduct a thorough examination of your hair and scalp, which may include the use of a scalp microscope or magnifying glass.

The Consultant will explain the nature of your disorder, give specific advice, answer your questions, and if necessary suggest a treatment regime. We will write to your GP requesting certain blood tests or sometimes to a specific medical specialist for further investigation if required.

The clinic is able to offer scalp and hair treatments if prescribed. Specialist trichological preparations are used during treatment and can be purchased for use at home if desired. Treatment is not suggested unless the consultant feels it necessary or beneficial and patients are never asked to pay for a course of treatment in advance. The clinic conforms rigidly to the strong ethical code of the Institute.
