Hair Loss Diagnosis
It can be very distressing to discover hair loss or excessive hair shedding. We understand that knowing where to go to get help or advice can be problematic. There are many websites promising amazing results following the use of their products. If you wish to receive a formal diganosis for your hair thinning or hair loss then you may find the following information helpful.
If you are experiencing what you believe to be more hair loss than usual then the first step is to visit your GP for investigation and diagnosis. Your GP may identify causes that can be treated. If appropriate your GP may refer you to a Consultant Dermatologist. Dermatology is the study of skin and this includes hair loss.
If you do wish to visit a private Consultant Dermatologist, with an interest in hair loss, please call or email us directly and we will try to recommend one in your area.
Visiting a Trichologist
There may be a lengthy waiting list to visit a NHS dermatologist free of charge. Therefore, it may be more appropriate to book a private appointment with a Trichologist locally, although all Trichologists are 'NOT Medically Qualified', they do study hair loss conditions via online courses etc. and should be able to provide you with a hair loss diagnosis and prognosis.
If a Dermatologist or registered Trichologist informs you that your diagnosis will result in significant permanent hair loss or thinning with little chance of improvement you may want to consider other hair loss management options. These might include our Intralace System options™, Medi Connections™, or Hair Replacement Intralace Freewear System™.
Visiting an NHS Consultant Dermatologist is most likely to be the very best medical advice available. You may also visit a Consultant Dermatologist privately
Qualified medical professionals are governed by the General Medical Council “GMC” and are ethically bound to offer you the best advice and treatment available.
