Scalp and Hair Clinic – What to expect

It can be hard to know where to turn to for help with so many aestheticians entering the hair restoration market.  Many people don’t realise that the majority of trichologists have not had the benefit of comprehensive training in all aspects of health which occurs in medical training. Be rest assured that the service provided to you is based on a decade of learning in the business of non-surgical hair restoration, informed by regular monitoring of the evidence base plus membership of various relevant professional groups. You will therefore not be offered treatment unless there is a sound basis for it. Where the evidence is less clear, this will be explained to you.  

Your journey starts with understanding the cause of the hair loss.  The process starts with a detailed consultation covering your general health, medication, nutrition, family history and hair care practices.  This should ideally be done face to face, to examine close examination of the scalp, but because of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic the journey can start virtually. Once you have booked your initial consultation you will be asked to send in good quality photographs of your hair and scalp, and complete a questionnaire.  It is also helpful to have a Summary Printout from your GP as this will include important diagnoses and blood tests.  (You are entitled to obtain this free of charge and by email from your GP).

It is recommended that you book for a  consultation + TrichoLab imaging to get precise imaging of your scalp as well as a second opinion from internationally recognised dermatologists.   The cost of  the consultation includes  a follow up appointment within the first month to discuss the initial recommendations and then within 6-12 months as it can take many months to see progress.  The recommendations may be changes to your lifestyle, specific medical treatments, recommendations for further investigations or a referral to a dermatologist.

If you would like to speak to a medical doctor who is also recognised as a trichologist, please make an appointment.

The TrichoTest is also available which is a great innovation in personalising treatment for hair loss.  The TrichoLab report is an excellent way to track progress because of the high precision measurements and the second opinion from experts facility.
