Hair Loss Treatments – What Happens When You Come and Visit Our London Hair Loss Clinic?

The London Centre of Trichology is a London hair loss clinic offering a full range of hair loss consultancy, diagnosis and treatment plans to men and women.

When you visit our hair loss clinic, we will...

Make you feel comfortable and relaxed

Our hair loss clinic is easy to find, situated on Blandford Street, London W1. The nearest underground stations are Bond St tube and the tube at Marble Arch. Once here you will be greeted by our friendly receptionist and seated in comfortable surroundings. Offered coffee or tea and made to feel at home, you will then have the chance to speak to one of our experienced and professional trichologists who will answer any questions you may have.

Examine your hair and scalp

During your free consultation which is designed to establish the cause of your hair loss and whether hair loss treatment will be effective, we will examine your hair and scalp using a Proscope. This is a USB served, handheld digital microscope which captures still images, video and even time-lapse photography and transfers those images directly on to a computer screen. The Proscope can magnify an image up to 200 times making it much easier to see and diagnose a problem.

Ask you some questions

The questions we ask are targeted at discovering whether there is a history of baldness in your family, the state of your general health, whether you are taking or have taken any prescribed medication recently, what your diet consists of, how you look after your hair, what your hair care regime is like, what hair care products you use and what your lifestyle is like, all things that can and often do have a bearing on the health of a person’s hair.

Tell you if we can help you

The information gleaned from the Proscope examination and from the question and answer session will be enough to tell our tricholgists whether or not our treatments will be effective for you and we will advise you honestly. If our treatments are not going to be successful in your particular case, we will tell you.

Explain the range of treatments that are on offer

During your visit we will explain the range of hair loss treatments that we provide from our London hair loss clinic. The hair care treatments on offer at The London Centre of Trichology are all entirely natural. That is to say, there are no chemicals or additives likely to cause an allergic reaction of any kind.

When you visit our hair loss clinic, we won't...

Hurt you

All our treatments and examinations are completely natural, safe and pain free.

Charge you any money if we can't help you

Your initial consultation is free or charge. It is an exploratory session in which we establish whether or not our hair loss treatment processes are going to be beneficial to you. We will only recommend further treatment if we believe you will benefit from it.

Recommend any treatments that have nasty side effects

All of our hair loss treatment products are completely natural and do not produce any nasty side effects

Contact your doctor

Our work does not involve your GP and so there is no need for us to contact your surgery. If however, it is found that a course of medication you have been prescribed is resulting in your hair loss we will recommend that you consult your GP with a view to obtaining a different prescription.

Male Hair Loss Treatment – What Are The Options?

Male hair loss affects more than half of the male population and can mostly be attributed to a phenomenon known as male pattern balding. However, with an early diagnosis and the correct treatment, there is lots that can be done to prevent further hair loss and even to encourage hair regrowth.

Hair Loss Treatment – Diagnosis is Key

In order to effectively treat male hair loss, the first step is to correctly diagnose the cause. At The London Centre of Trichology, a hair loss clinic in central London, the resident trichologists do this free of charge, for any man or woman suffering from hair loss.

During a diagnostic session your scalp will be looked at closely using an instrument called a Proscope.  This works rather like a magnifying glass which is hooked up to a computer monitor, allowing the trichologist to see really close up, detailed pictures on the monitor. These images are then saved for comparison later on, when you return for a check up.

During your free hair and scalp consultation you will be asked a series of general health questions about any medications you may be on, your diet, your lifestyle and whether or not there is any family history of hair loss or baldness. You will also be asked about your hair care regime, the sorts of shampoos and conditioners you use, whether you use a hairdryer, brushes, combs etc.

With trichology which is the study of the structure and functions of the hair and scalp and the treatment of any hair or scalp diseases, there is no need to contact your GP. In fact you will only be recommended to do so, if it is thought that the cause of your hair loss is attributable to any pre-existing medical condition or to a side effect of any medications you are taking.

Once a diagnosis has been reached and if it is thought that hair loss treatment may help, a hair restoration treatment plan will be devised.

Hair Restoration Treatments

Whilst at present, no hair loss treatment can guarantee hair regrowth and most work solely on the basis of trying to prevent further hair loss, in many cases hair regrowth does occur. This may well be due to the fact that our natural hair treatments are aimed at specifics like stimulating the blood flow to the scalp, blocking the hormone DHT from forming in the root follicles, strengthening the hair follicles and cleansing the hair root.
Here at the London Centre of Trichology we only use entirely natural hair loss prevention treatments and each treatment is specifically tailored to the needs of the client. This is important because it means we can guarantee that there will be no side effects to our treatments whatsoever. Hair loss will not only be prevented but your may actually start to re-grow and it won’t start to fall out again when treatment stops, in difference to some chemical based hair loss treatments.

What other options are there?

Hair restoration surgery, scalp flap surgery, hair transplants and hair weaving are options available to men who have not responded well to other forms of treatment. Many men utilise these with successful results. Others choose to go bald gracefully, accepting it as a natural part of the ageing process.

How London Centre of Trichology can help

The London Centre of Trichology can help by quickly ascertaining the cause of your balding, determining whether or not our treatments might be successful and if so, recommending a course of treatment to suit your specific condition.
