TRICHOLOGY

What is a Trichologist?

A Trichologist specialises in all matters relating to hair and scalp health and takes a holistic approach to treatment, which involves considering an individual’s lifestyle, diet and wellbeing, as well as the signs and symptoms present.

Why would you see a Trichologist?

Hair loss is a condition which affects growing numbers of the population. It is reported that it affects 40% of women aged 40 and up to 80% at age 60, 40% of men at age 35 reaching 70% at age 80.  It is no surprise that Trichologists and their specialist services are increasing in demand.

What happens during a Consultation?

On booking a consultation, which usually takes about an hour, you would be sent a confidential questionnaire to complete and return prior to your appointment.  This will enable Aderans Trichologists to begin their assessment of your condition and concerns. It is always helpful to attach photo’s as well.

Here at AHC we know that hair loss can cause extreme distress and anxiety and can have a huge impact on the individual experiencing these conditions and the way they live their lives. It can affect mental health; social and work life and it can also change people’s perception of themselves with the potential of destroying self-esteem.  We understand this and we are here to listen and to try and help.

There are numerous reasons why you may be losing your hair and without understanding the reasons behind this, it can cause further stress and anxiety resulting in further hair losses.
