What does a Trichologist do?

Trichology is the scientific study of the hair and scalp.

A qualified Trichologist is able to diagnose, advise and treat hair and scalp disorders, as a specialist.

Although not medically qualified, a Trichologist undergoes two years of medical training in areas relating to the hair and scalp with the prestigious Institute of Trichologists. The Institute of Trichologists was founded in 1902 and its members are bound by a strict code of practice and ethics in their clinical practice.

Depending on the condition, further medical investigation may be required where systemic and hormonal disorders are suspected. With your permission, a letter of referral will be written to your GP to request specific blood tests and onward referral. Alternatively, I can refer you to a recommended private GP or Dermatologist who will be sensitive to the issues surrounding hair loss and able to carry out skin biopsies for confirmation.

The Surrey Trichology Clinic carries out all services in a sensitive and private clinical environment.

Additional services offered by Surrey Trichology Clinic:
  • Hair piece/wig supply, fitting and personalisation
  • Referral to other specialists i.e. hair transplant surgery
  • Educational talks on hair and scalp health
  • Hair growth monitoring for individuals/research
 A Trichology appointment

The consultation: A new patient seeking help will first have a thorough consultation to gain a detailed medical and hair history and to microscopically examine the hair and scalp. We will discuss the diagnosis and specific advice will be given regarding the next steps to on management, treatment options, alternative covering solutions or to further investigate the condition as appropriate.

  • Please do not wash your hair on the day of the appointment
  • Please bring with you a copy of recent blood test results
  • Please bring with you details of any medications or supplements you take regularly

The Treatment

Treatment options using prescriptive trichology products will be discussed and their benefits explained. if appropriate for your specific condition. Homecare advice will also be discussed, as some conditions may require a change in routine or additional attention at home in order to manage the condition successfully.

Treatments can include electrotherapy including high frequency stimulation, UV light therapy and infrared light therapy, massage, steaming, micro-needling and the application of specialist prescriptive products.

A treatment can last approximately 45 minutes. Should you require a post-treatment blow-dry, please allow a further 30-45 minutes, alternatively, a hairdryer will be provided for your own use. There is no obligation to sign up to any treatment regime.

I am able to supply a range of hair loss solutions, from keratin micro-fibres to disguise thinning hair with a visible scalp, to supplying, fitting and personalising wigs and hairpieces. (www.mynewhair.org)


About me

I have worked in the hairdressing industry for 17 years, with the last 6 of those in a local further education college as a hairdressing lecturer, where I teach 3 days a week and share my knowledge and respect for hair and scalp health.

Throughout my time in the industry, I have seen numerous clients experience problems with their hair or scalp. This led me to study Trichology and train for two years with the Institute of Trichologists, successfully qualifying top of my class with Distinctions in both first and second years.

I am passionate about education and ongoing knowledge and hope to be able to put mine to good use by helping people who are experiencing these sensitive issues. I strive to keep up to date with the latest research to enable me to offer the best possible advice and evidence-based treatments.
