Hair loss or thinning hair can be very distressing, particularly if you normally have a glossy mane. Whilst hair loss is more common in men, anyone can experience it and around one in three women will do so at some point. Of course, hair shedding is a completely normal daily process but if you experience a noticeable loss of volume or thickness, it is worth seeking advice.


Genes or a reactive trigger can cause significant hair thinning or a reduction in hair quality; triggers include hormone / thyroid imbalance, infection, nutritional deficiency, stress, rapid weight loss and certain medications. Poor scalp health can also result in issues with the scalp itself or hair problems. Androgenetic alopecia (male or female pattern baldness) is a common cause of hair loss, as is alopecia areata (patchy hair loss), an autoimmune condition. Hormonal changes, after pregnancy and childbirth and following menopause, are particularly common triggers. Stress is too: telogen effluvium – where a greater percentage of hair shifts from the growing to shedding phase – causes a sudden excess of hair to fall out. Usually a temporary condition, it tends to occur after severe stress – brought on by an infection (such as COVID-19).


Fortunately, changes are often temporary and, even with longer-term issues, there are numerous things you can do to improve hair quality and growth. The first step is to talk to one of our aesthetic doctors to discuss the probable cause of your hair or scalp issues. They will then recommend the best course of action, with a treatment plan which complements any other treatment protocol you might be following. Our goal is always to have you looking and feeling better as soon as possible.
