Adele has been practising Trichology for 23 years.
Wigs & Hairpieces are available for Alopecia & Chemotherapy patients.
Adele has received training in all aspects of hair science care and hair processing s well as being a qualified Trichologist.
Trichology is the science of the structure, function and diseases of the human hair. An initial consultation is likely to last up to an hour, and will gives you the opportunity to discuss any issues or problems in confidence. During this time, to ensure the perfect wig for you, Adele will ask many questions including:
- Medical history
- Hair care regime
- Examination of the hair and scalp
- Sometimes hair analysis is required
It is useful to bring details of any medications that you are taking and results of any recent blood tests that you may have had during this initial consultation. We will also take a holistic viewpoint, giving consideration to various aspects of lifestyle and diet and care and management of the hair (including sensitivities and allergies suffered) before a suitable regime for the scalp and hair is recommended.
It is only after this detailed questioning and a close examination of your scalp and hair that we will be able to make a diagnosis and prognosis. However, it is not always possible to make an immediate diagnosis.
It is common for scalp disorders to be diagnosed at the time of consultation, but hair loss problems may require blood tests, either from your GP. Once diagnosis has been made, advice will be given, and only if thought necessary will treatment be offered. Decisions will also be made as to whether or not you should be referred to a medical doctor.
Alopecia is a blanket term for hair loss of any kind. There are many types and causes of hair loss (alopecia), most of which can be effectively treated. Hair loss may be genetically inherited, or it may be caused by a variety of other factors including protein or other dietary deficiency, hormonal imbalance, and stress. Hair loss can also be the first sign of an otherwise undiagnosed or undetected underlying illness.
