Like the skin on the rest of our body our scalp is affected by such factors as our general health, environment, nutritional intake, medications, stress, cosmetic/styling products and general handling. Scalp disorders present in many different ways and cover a wide range of conditions each with their own specific signs and symptons. These may include one or more of the following: itching, sore/tender/burning sensations, varying degrees of flaking/scaling, spots/pustular activity and even thinning hair / alopecia. The most commonly seen scaly scalp conditions include dandruff, seborrhoeic eczema and scalp psoriasis.
While some scalp conditions can be fully resolved others can at best be only controlled and managed with treatment. Unfortunately, there are some disorders that cause scarring of the scalp resulting in permanent hair loss to the affected area; early diagnosis and treatment is therefore essential to limit the extent of any permanent loss.
Our Trichologist will undertake a thorough examination of your hair and scalp to diagnose your scalp condition, and offer expert advice and where appropriate provide specialised scalp treatments both in-clinic and also for home use.
We take pride in working closely with our patients to get their scalp condition under control with our in-clinic treatments using specifically custom made preparations to soften and remove the build up of scales and improve the overall health of the scalp. We also assess and advise on the appropriate treatment plan to manage the condition at home and maintain a healthier scalp. Our in-clinic treatments compliment and work well alongside any topical medications prescribed by your GP for treating scalp related eczema and psoriasis of the scalp.
