We can help slow down the process of male and female pattern baldness, improve the density and the condition of your hair, and we also provide services to dermabraid scaly, itchy scalps.
What is Trichology?
Trichology is a branch of medicine that deals specifically with the study of hair and the scalp. Qualified practitioners possess an extensive knowledge of the functioning of human hair and the scalp, and the concerns relating to the diseases and disorders it can be affected by.
Approximately one-fifth of all GP appointments are skin- or hair-related and if a GP feels a hair problem is deemed appropriate for a referral to a dermatologist on the NHS you could be in for a wait of up to 3 months as a non-urgent appointment.
There are only approximately 650 dermatologists (many of whom are part-time) in the UK so you can appreciate the lengthy waiting list as they specialise in not only hair but also in nails, skin cancer and skin complaints of the whole body.
Qualified Trichologists can reduce the work of a GP and dermatologist by offering services to accurately diagnose a condition, and if a referral is required for a biopsy can produce documents for a GP to refer you.
The Northants Hair & Scalp Clinic is a private-based service as Trichology is not currently available on the NHS. Read more about us »
