At Lumiere Clinic, our Consultant Dermatologist has a special interest in hair disorders and is able to diagnose and treat your hair loss or thinning problem with a range of medical treatments.
It is important to have your hair-loss condition examined appropriately by a specialist to start treatment early before the condition progresses and hair loss becomes irreversible. It is also important to determine whether your hair loss is a non-scarring or scarring type.
There are a range of causes for hair loss and hair thinning. The most common causes are:
This condition is characterised by patchy areas of hair loss with smooth bald areas on the scalp. The condition is common in childhood, but can also occur in adulthood. It is commonly triggered by a stressful event or a medical illness. It tends to run in people whose family members are also affected with a similar hair problem or an autoimmune disease.
Male pattern and female pattern hair loss
Male and female pattern hair loss are the most common reasons for hair thinning. In men (especially in people whose family members are also affected), it is common to see thinning on the top of the scalp with receding frontal hair lines. In women (especially after menopause), it is common to see thinning on the top of the scalp with widening of the central parting.
Telogen effluvium is a hair-shedding condition where the hair is shed during the telogen phase. Acute shedding tends to follow a stressful event, whereas chronic shedding can occur due to a range of causes, sometimes due to underlying medical reasons.
Here are the treatments that we offer:
Scalp skin biopsy
A scalp skin biopsy is available to diagnose your hair loss condition accurately. At your consultation, this will be discussed if deemed appropriate.
These are medical prescriptions in the form of creams or tablets. It is important that you are monitored regularly by your dermatologist while you are treated with prescribed medical treatments for hair loss.
Platelet rich plasma (PRP)
Platelet rich plasma is suitable for certain types of hair loss (alopecia), to prevent it happening further and promote hair growth. Best results are usually combined with medical treatments. It is ideal to start treatment early at the first sign of hair loss and thinning. Results can be seen as early as 2 months, but typically between 5 to 8 months.
Hair care and supplements
Advice on specialist hair care and supplements are available at your consultation.
