Hair Loss

The Impact of Hair Loss

Often referred to as your “crowning glory”, hair can be seen as a defining feature for both men and women. It is therefore hardly surprising that when there is a problem with the hair, the effect on the individual can be wide reaching, causing anything from mild concern and anxiety through to serious depressive disorders and debilitating self-esteem issues.

Almost all of the patients that Eva sees in her hair clinics have been living with a hair or scalp issue for at least 6 – 9 months before they find the courage to address it (and on average may have been ‘suffering in silence’ between 2 – 5 years). But, with 1 in 2 people in the UK suffering a hair loss issue at some point it’s important to understand that you are not alone – and that help is at hand.

If you’re worried and feeling ‘fobbed off’ by your GP or other health practitioners, then please don’t delay any longer – do give us a call, as my team are all highly trained and understand how to listen and how help you to find a way forward.

Having suffered hair loss herself, Eva truly understands the difficulties faced when talking about your concerns and finding an appropriate practitioner you can trust – and you’ll find that Eva and her team truly reflect this when advising anyone who reaches out for help and advice.

As a Clinical Trichologist – highly trained in the diagnosis and treatment of all the diseases of the hair and scalp – Eva has an in-depth and specialist knowledge of how and why hair loss or scalp problems occur and, in many cases, will be able to improve conditions leading to hair loss and shedding.

Understanding Hair Loss

Early intervention can be key when treating hair loss – and in some circumstances, waiting might mean that the effects of specific conditions can become permanent. Eva prefers to try to help to resolve hair loss conditions before they get to this stage, and where a hair piece or wig might be the only option left to help restore hair. So, if you’re concerned about hair or scalp issues, please do not delay it.

Hair is often seen as a “window on the overall health and wellbeing of a person” as it is very sensitive to lifestyle factors such as diet, medical conditions and stress. As a consultant trichologist, Eva works holistically to investigate all potential background factors, before performing a detailed examination of the hair and scalp to ensure that any underlying causes are identified and paving the way for successful treatment. In all her clinics, Eva adheres to the industry’s gold standard ‘5-steps’ approach:

1. Symptoms: not all symptoms can be seen but are relevant to the overall diagnosis process, so listen to what the patient is telling you about what they can ‘feel’ too. This might include itching, burning or creeping sensations.

2. Look for signs and associated signs: when we examine, we look for clinical evidence in the hair and on the scalp as well as in other areas of the body such as nails where problems can also occur.

3. Diagnosis: we bring together all the things we have been told and have found, to give a diagnosis that in many cases can be more than just one condition (and often, with more than just one cause). This is critical to ensuring the best treatment and outcome for each individual patient.

4. Aetiology: what are the possible causes of the condition.

5. Prognosis: what is the likely outcome of the treatment for the condition.

So, if you are one of the millions of people worrying about your hair, then take control today. In fact, ongoing stress and anxiety can even make some conditions worse, so seeking reassurance and positive approach can be really beneficial too.

The first stage of your hair health journey:

The first step in dealing with your hair or scalp concerns is to book in for a consultation to obtain an accurate diagnosis.

This will help to pin-point the condition and will enable the trichologist to provide an in-depth explanation of what is happening, why it is happening and how it can be treated.

What happens next…

The second step is to take back control – don’t let your hair or scalp concerns impact the rest of your life.

Understand your diagnosis and embrace the many different treatment (whether topical or supplementation) cosmetic and even surgical options that are available. There is so much that can be done to retain hair, restore growth and reverse hair loss, thinning and shedding.

Clinical Trichology is the science of the structure and function of human hair, combined with the diagnosis and treatment of diseases and disorders of the hair and scalp.
