Hair Loss Treatment

If you are worried about your hair thinning, we can help. Whether you have tried remedies, shampoos, diets, hair transplants (or none of the above), getting a specific diagnosis and treatment plan from a specialist will optimise your hair growth — and relieve you from the frustration and distress hair loss can cause.

What to Expect

First, come in for a consultation with Dr Nasim Rouhani. Dr Rouhani is a consultant dermatologist who has sub-specialised in hair disorders. What does this mean? She is one of only a handful of dermatologists who get referrals from other dermatologists to treat hair specifically. In the NHS she is the lead clinician for hair disorders in London and regularly undertakes research and clinical trials to keep her expertise at the forefront of her field. She knows her stuff.

Within the consultation three things will happen:

  1. Dr Rouhani will review your scalp with a dermatoscope (microscope for the skin) to see exactly what is happening at a cellular level. She will also use trichometry to understand your hair density and mass, so we can track progress effectively.
  2. Images are normally taken to check and review progress at a later date. Occasionally a blood test or a small sample of your scalp may be required to send to the lab for further testing.
  3. Your will be provided with a diagnosis and comprehensive treatment plan – this may include topical or oral medications, injections into the scalp, or a combination of methods depending on what your diagnosis is.

After three months (or sooner if required) you will be required to attend for a follow up to check things are growing back as your dermatologist expects them to.

Hair Disorders

The medical term for hair loss is alopecia. There are a few common hair disorders that we see, including:

Male Pattern Baldness

An extremely common condition, but by no means any less distressing, Male Pattern Baldness impacts a large proportion of men – from the teenage years to older age.  Pattern hair loss is apparent in 50% of individuals by the age of 50 years and is due to genetic programming or hormonal influences.

Female Pattern Baldness

Another common condition, it is usually located on the top and front of the scalp and whilst it can be inherited it is also influenced by hormones – including post-menopause.

Alopecia Areata

Affecting children and adults of all skin and hair colours, alopecia areata is an autoimmune condition (where inflammation is impacting the hair follicles) that typically shows as patches of hair loss. The cause of this inflammation is often unknown but stress may play a part.

Telogen Hair Loss

Excessive shedding of hair is known as telogen effluvium and can be caused post-pregnancy, by a fever, weight loss, haemorrhage, surgery, stress, and medications.

What a lovely find No.23 Skin is, this was my first facial post lockdown and I picked the perfect place. It is in beautiful location just off High St Ken and whilst being luxurious it was also welcoming and warm. I selected the anti-aging facial and Cecilia tailored it especially to my skin concerns. She had had such a great touch and I was relaxed from the first minute. Facial included a fabulous massage and a LED light treatment (this is a must) and after 75 mins I left with glowing skin! It’s been over two weeks and my skin still looks fresh and dewy.Next appointment is with Dr Armstrong for my wrinkle treatment. Will then be Christmas party ready!read more

The team at No.23 Skin are really helpful, warm and knowledgeable. I went in for a pregnancy facial with Cecilia and she helped me with some very annoying milia that have been troubling me around my eyes for ages and nobody else would help with.I was also able to have a pregnancy safe peel which has left me with smoother skin with a more even tone. Would really recommend!read more
