What is trichology?

Trichology is a specialised science of the structure, function and diseases of human hair. Our clinical work involves the diagnosis and treatment of all types of hair loss and scalp disorders.

Why visit a trichologist?

Hair loss
Hair loss is extremely distressing and there are many misunderstandings about its causes and treatment. Many patients feel previous attempts to treat their hair loss have been met unsympathetically and wonder who can help.

The causes of hair loss are varied so the correct diagnosis is essential to enable successful treatment.

During a consultation the scalp will be examined to determine hair density, distribution, quality and pattern of hair loss. As we analyse your particular type of loss we can select and establish which treatments will suit your individual need.

Disorders of the scalp

Ranging from dandruff to more inflammatory conditions such as psoriasis, eczema and seborrhoeic dermatitis, many irritating and cosmetically embarrassing conditions can be alleviated with the correct treatment regime. Treatments offer relief from irritation and discomfort.

Severely broken/damaged hair

Problems with hair structure are caused by the over exposure to excessive heat or strong chemicals. Specialised products are applied to reconstruct weak brittle hair, restoring body, strength and porosity to over processed damaged hair.

Patients will be advised on the products specifically for their hair type which will strengthen the cortex and improve pliability. These products keep the protein and moisture balance at the correct levels enabling the patient to achieve the best results from their hair. The hair will improve in fullness with additional body and shine thus maintaining the hairstyle for a longer period of time

The knowledge and experience of a trichologist is utilized to establish the nature of the hair problem thereby ensuring the most effective treatment will be received. 
Not all types of hair loss and scalp conditions can be completely cured, however most can be successfully managed and controlled.
