HAIR LOSS

Hair loss can be attributed to various factors; most commonly it results from either hormonal or nutritional imbalances and deficiencies. Whatever your concern, we are at hand to help find the root problem of your hair loss or scalp disorder and put together a bespoke treatment to suit your requirements.

During your consultation we will undertake a thorough assessment, taking into account your current concerns, your overall health and lifestyle factors and undertake a detailed examination of your scalp and hair. The consultation can last anywhere from 20 minutes to a full hour. This will provide us with the time required to fully understand what is going on and allow us to formulate an effective management plan. Your detailed bespoke management plan may include generalhealth advice, nutritional supplements, medication, or possibly even a referral to out specialist colleagues in hair transplantation.

How We Can Help

Common problems with the scalp and hair can be a result of inadequate nutrition or dietary gaps, illness, traction alopecia, thyroid dysfunction, damage after chemotherapy treatment, hormone imbalance, menopause, genetic issues, follicle sensitivity, or stress. Our doctors will assess your case and provide a comprehensive treatment plan to deliver the results you are after.

Hair Loss, Thinning Hair or Damaged Hair

Thinning or damaged hair can be extremely stressful, especially if you don't know what's causing it. Causes differ from person-to-person. Understanding the underlying force behind alopecia, hair loss, hair thinning, or male pattern baldness is always the most crucial aspect of any treatment. Where appropriate, our doctors can advise and refer you to a specialist team we work with who undertake robotic mediated hair restoration and transplantation.

Male Pattern Baldness

Male pattern baldness occurs due to a sensitivity to the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT). You can inhibit the production of DHT through the use of certain oral medications, whilst certain foods and supplements can also prove useful. Otherwise FUE (follicular unit extraction) hair transplantation remains an option for which we can refer you onwards.

Scalp Problems

Issues which effect the scalp such as dandruff, psoriasis, eczema and dermatitis, to name a few, are common for women and men and we are able to diagnose and treat most scalp problems. If your case requires the opinion of a dermatologist, we would be able to refer onwards for specialist input.

Hair Texture Problems

Even if you are not experiencing any hair thinning, your hair may seem dull and lifeless. This can be a result of over-heating hair (hair straightening), chemically-exposed hair (after perms and straightening chemicals), and even stress, which our doctors can address and provide treatment for.
