Consultation

 Although no longer vital for our general health or survival, our hair still plays a significant role in our personal self expression as individuals (choice of length, colour style etc.), and the emotional and psychological effects of an occurrence of hair loss on an individual should not be underestimated or trivialised. Patients often say their trichology consultation is the first time they have felt their condition is being taken seriously and thoroughly investigated. Just being able to fully discuss the issue and receive a diagnosis and understanding of the condition provides great relief to patients.

 

 

A new patient consultation at one of our clinics will normally last between 45 minutes to an hour.  Our holistic

 

approach involves a detailed discussion with the patient to build a full case history relating to health, lifestyle and

 

environment, followed by an examination of the patients hair and scalp. A diagnosis will be given at the end of the

 

consultation and (if relevant) treatment/s discussed. 

 

 

Sometimes it may be necessary to refer a patient to another healthcare professional for further assessments to

 

confirm a diagnosis, and/or obtain more specialised treatment. in such circumstances we will normally provide the

 

initial referral letter at no extra cost to the patient. 

 

 

If you are experiencing any type of hair loss (alopecia) or scalp disorder (whether new or an ongoing issue that has not resolved itself) and have been wary or embarrassed about seeing someone or unsure who to go to for help then please get in touch.

Treatment

Treatment is only offered where deemed necessary, appropriate and beneficial. 

 

Any recommended treatment will be based on the diagnosed condition and any symptoms being experienced by the patient.

 

Hair loss: regular stimulating hi frequency and light therapy treatments may be prove suitable or alternatively a topical or prescribed medication may be more a  appropriate treatment; the consultation diagnosis and subsequent discussion will determine this.

 

In-clinic treatments - start from £25 per treatment

 

 

Scaling / scalp disorders: Depending on the severity of the condition a course of in-clinic treatments may initially be needed to get the condition under control. We understand how difficult it is for patients to properly apply treatments/preparations themselves especially to areas of the scalp that are not view-able or easily reached. We will not provide you with a handful of medications and send you away to manage on your own. We pride ourselves on working with patients by commencing treatment in-clinic until the condition is under control, and easily maintainable at home with the appropriate shampoos and creams for their particular needs. Patients are fully supported with follow up appointments to review progress and adjust treatment medications as necessary. 

 

In-clinic treatments - from £40 per treatment
