Hair loss is a very common problem in both men and women – and it’s something our Dermatologists have a lot of experience here at our Manchester skin clinic. We know that it can feel frightening and unfamiliar if and when it happens to you, so we’ve put together this guide to help you not only identify if you have the problem, but what hair loss treatment is available, if you do.
Do I have hair loss?
This is undoubtedly the first thing you’ll ask if you’re suspicious of the condition. Thankfully, there are lots of indications that there may be a problem, varying in degrees from slight thinning, to bald spots, to hair falling out in clumps.
Our Dermatologists are experts in identifying this problem, so if in doubt, don’t hesitate to get in touch for a confidential consultation.
What’s causing my condition?
The cause of can help determine which hair loss treatments will be effective. Sometimes it can be something temporary, like stress or illness, or it could be unavoidable, like genetics or age. It’s also important to check your vitamin levels, as hair loss has been linked to iron deficiency.
What happens if I don’t have hair loss treatment?
Depending on the type of hair loss you have, there’s a chance that it might not clear up on its own, and it could even get worse. Seeking hair loss treatment early is really important in trying to preserve – and hopefully boost – what hair you do have, and encourage new growth.
What options are available?
We have a range of hair loss treatments that may help, from medical prescriptions to hair care treatments. If you don’t want to try hair loss treatment, there are still some things you can consider. You could wear a natural hair wig, cover the area, or even try a tattoo (for instance, if the hair loss is on your eyebrows). However, hair loss can be hugely detrimental to your mental health and wellbeing – especially if this happens while young, and as so many of us consider our hair to be a part of our identity.
