You will have up to an hour for a full consultation*, during which a detailed examination will be conducted by resident Trichologist, Robert Eaton.

Hair loss can cause great distress, and there are many misunderstandings about its causes and treatment. Probably the most common type of hair loss is the so-called ‘male pattern baldness’, which, despite its name, can affect women as well as men, and for which, in men, there appears to be no specific, readily-available treatment. This is a problem that requires sympathetic handling, and a qualified trichologist has to understand the patient’s anxiety and help them come to terms with the loss of hair. Some women suffering from this condition can be helped with medical assistance and the use of hormonal treatment.
