50 minute one-on-one consultation - £140 (Manchester), £130 (Yorkshire)
DETAILED HISTORY & CONCERNS
During your consultation a detailed patient history will be taken. Your concerns will be thoroughly discussed, along with your medical history, nutrition, lifestyle, hair care practices and family history. Our priority is ensuring patients feel heard and understood, we understand that patients may be nervous so we focus on creating a caring and relaxed environment.
EXAMINATION & TRICHOSCOPY
If you feel comfortable, a gentle but thorough examination of your hair and scalp will be done. A specialist digital microscope called a trichoscope will be used to study the health of the hair follicle and scalp surface. Analysis of hair diameter will also be perfomed, along with clinical photography if needed for monitoring and referral purposes.
DIAGNOSIS, TREATMENT & REFERRALS
Your diagnosis will then be clearly explained along with your options for treatment and recommendations for managing the condition. This may include referrals back to your GP or dermatologist for blood tests and further investigations. All the information will be sent to you by email within a week following your consultation, including onward referral letters.
BEFORE YOUR CONSULTATION
A confirmation will be sent via email, along with directions to the clinic, and instructions for the day of the appointment.

25 minute follow-up - £55
Follow-up appointments will be arranged where appropriate to monitor progress with at-home treatment, after further testing is ordered, or to regularly monitor your condition.
Treatment plans are provided as part of your initial consultation. The focus of treatment plans are usually on products, medications, and lifestyle changes that can be implemented at home.
HAIR CARE ROUTINES
How you treat your hair and the products you use can make a big difference to your hair and scalp health. General guidance will be given after your consultation, and more in-depth bespoke routines with product recommendations can be created for you if you would like more support with your hair care.
NUTRITION AND LIFESTYLE
Diet and lifestyle factors are implicated in various hair and scalp conditions. Relevant advice will be given following the initial consultation, but further support with diet and lifestyle changes is offered where patients would benefit from extra help and coaching.
