Here at The Hair Centre we specialise in dealing with Female Hair Loss problems.

In fact, our results are second to none.

I had known for years that I’d have to confront my thinning hair problem at some stage. Having older sisters with various degrees of hair thinning led me to believe that I’d follow suit sooner or later. I took some action after I noticed that I had started to look haggard, much older than I should do. I put it down to having had a few stressful years but then I started to notice my visible scalp more & more.

I decided that I would have to look into what could be done as, although I don’t consider myself to be vain, I had begun to feel less attractive and feminine. I googled hair loss women and as The Hair Centre, in Victoria, looked very credible I looked through their information. I couldn’t help feel sceptical as I’ve not heard about any hair loss treatment that has been proven to work.

At the first consultation I met Gary Heron who took pictures of my hair. With the digital pictures on screen I could see how stressed and thin my hair had become. I still felt sceptical that anything could be done to properly rectify my thinning hair but seeing the extent of the damage made it worth while to try, despite having to borrow the money.

I find the treatment very straight forward and easy to adapt into my daily washing routines. The condition if my hair improved very quickly and I could see and feel some grow back within the first three months. Gary Heron was pleased by how responsive my hair had been to treatment and advised that by adding follicle builder to my treatment programme I should get a full recovery.

I’ve been receiving this treatment for a total of seven months, with three months including the follicle builder, and my hair is dramatically fuller and healthier. Gary Heron tells me that I am half way to a full recovery but I’m already receiving regular compliments about my hair again. I feel much more confident about my appearance and I’m looking forward to the next few months and getting even bigger hair!

  Sarah’s Treatments are:

Vitastim 15% Hair Regrowth Stimulant and Hair Loss Stabiliser:
This stimulant is recommended to help stabilise hair loss and strengthen existing hair. It is a natural hop-based solution that works as a vasodilator to increase blood circulation in the scalp and so enable healthy hair growth. It also contains a multi-vitamin complex to help catalyse the process of conversion of amino acids into keratin hair cells and accelerate growth and diameter of the hair from the dermal papilla.

Biostim 15% Hair Regrowth Stimulant and Hair Loss Stabiliser:
This stimulant contains a very effective natural 5-alpha reductase inhibitor. It reduces the amount of 5-alpha reductase in the scalp and thereby reduces the formation of DHT, stabilising hair loss and encouraging a healthy growth cycle.

Psoriasis is characterised by the presence of red, raised patches covered by silvery-white scales, which is caused by an abnormally fast cell division rate in the epidermis layer of the skin and is a genetically determined disorder.  This condition often leads to increased shedding of hairs in the telogen (resting) phase of the hair cycle and some reduction in hair density.

Androgenetic alopecia in women is often linked to hormonal changes with the hair loss following events such as the menopause, childbirth, or as a result of stopping or starting oral contraceptive pills.  The hair loss is generally more uniform over the scalp than in the male counterpart, but also results from a complex chemical reaction when the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase converts the testosterone in the system into DHT or dihydrotestosterone.  The hair follicles are genetically predisposed to be over sensitive to the DHT and become smaller and smaller with time, leading to the eventual hair loss.

This 26 year old woman came to us in the first week of February this year. She was suffering from Severe Female Hair Loss (Androgenetic Alopecia).

Androgenetic alopecia in women is often linked to hormonal changes with the hair loss following events such as the menopause, childbirth or as a result of stopping or starting oral contraceptive pills.  The hair loss is generally more uniform over the scalp than in the male counterpart, but also results from a complex chemical reaction when the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase converts the testosterone in the system into DHT or dihydrotestosterone.  The hair follicles are genetically predisposed to be over sensitive to the DHT and become smaller and smaller with time, leading to the eventual hair loss.

Charlotte is delighted with her early positive response. Her hair fall has all but stopped completely and has headed back to a normal regrowth cycle, and her irritation and scaly scalp are a thing of the past. She is now looking forward to further improvements and a good recovery over the next 6 to 12 months of ongoing treatments.

This 25 year old women started treatment with us in August 2007. She is diagnosed as suffering with Androgenetic Alopecia or Female Pattern Hair Baldness.

Androgenetic alopecia has a characteristic pattern of hair loss; it begins with a slight recession at the front hairline and is followed by thinning on the crown of the head.  This hair loss results from a complex chemical reaction when the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase converts the testosterone in the system into DHT or dihydrotestosterone.  The hair follicles are genetically predisposed to be oversensitive to the DHT and become smaller and smaller with time, leading to the eventual hair loss.

In order to treat hair loss effectively we would recommend that you have a diagnosis made as soon as possible by one of our experienced Westminster Trichologists. Stress can be an aggravator in almost all cases of hair loss and an accurate diagnosis will always, at the very least, take some of the stress away from you.

Gary Heron says: “You’ll have access to the most effective treatments available through The Hair Centre and at a fraction of the cost of going to other Private Commercial Clinics and Centres.”

When it’s time to see the Trichologist: If you begin losing hair rapidly, and or are cosmetically concerned about baldness, consult your Trichologist about treatment options. You can receive a free hair loss consultation with a Westminster Trichologist at our Hair Centre.

The point is that you are not getting to the real problem and you should seek specific professional advice from a Westminster Trichologist.

THE HAIR CENTRE LONDON:CUSTOMER SATISFACTION SURVEY 2013

Posted by Gary Heron, on November 9th, 2014, under HAIR LOSS CLINIC REVIEWED

The results of a customer satisfaction survey carried out support the fact that The Hair Centre London provides a very professional service.

The Hair Centre London is a national and worldwide leader in hair solutions headed by leading trichologist Gary Heron, developed a customer satisfaction survey in 2013 among its clientele to analyze areas where improvements could be made.

This type of study, has been developed for us by independent consultants, guarantees absolute objectivity in the results as well as the confidentiality of those surveyed.

One of the main things about The Hair Centre London that makes the company stand out is the promise to always offer the first consultation and confidential personalised report for free, a tangible extra that without a doubt also influences the level of customer satisfaction.

The results obtained from the analysis were outstanding. For example, 98 % of the customers were satisfied with their experience at The Hair Centre (98% of the women and 98% of the men). From this it can be deduced that these satisfied clients have improved their hair loss problems through specific hair treatments, such as using a trichological hair care program over 12 months, or in cases of advanced alopecia, resorting to a systems of hair replacement without surgery.

INVESTIGATE TO IMPROVE:

Why devise a satisfaction survey if we are already leaders in the market?

The answer is very simple: in order to continue offering the best possible service, it was necessary to discover areas where improvements could be made.

In addition, it is of extreme importance to listen periodically to the preferences and concerns clients have in order to take the appropriate action.

This is especially true when dealing with a subject like healthy hair.

Once the objective of the study was defined, it was time to begin asking the clients.

HOW THE DATA WAS OBTAINED:

The study was drawn from a total of 421 interviews among clients from The Hair Centre in London during the months of October to November 2013.

The public surveyed were a perfect representation of The Hair Centre London clientele.

The sample was made up of a gender distribution of 24% males as opposed to 76% females. With regard to age groups, 25% were up to 30 years old, 48% between 31 and 40 years old, 16% older than 41 years old, and the rest of the sample were above this age.

As with all statistical studies, the supervision of the data was of great importance in order to validate the information gathered. A group of customers were randomly selected to confirm that the data in their questionnaires was in fact true.

SATISFACTORY RESULTS:

And from the study to the conclusions – results notably demonstrate the value of the work developed by The Hair Centre London to save the beauty and health of hair of customers throughout Europe.

THE MAIN CONCLUSIONS:

95% of the clients have a good or very good overall level of satisfaction with regard to The Hair Centre services.

96% of the clients consider the attention received by the Trichologists to be good or very good.

On evaluating if the customer would recommend The Hair Centre within a scale of 1 to 10, an average high score was obtained 8.2.

96% of the women that received treatment from The Hair Centre consider the quality of the treatment received to be good to very good.

The quality of the products used scored positively.

98% of the trichological treatment customers consider the attention received by the technical staff to be good or very good.

Helen Flanagan displays bald spot, experts warn her poor diet and lifestyle could be the cause by Gary Heron

Posted by Gary Heron, on September 16th, 2014, under CELEBRITY HAIR LOSS

IT’S quite unusual that Helen Flanagan is papped looking anything less than flawless.

But the former Coronation Street actress was pictured showing what appeared to be a bald patch and considerably thinning hair.

A top expert for The Hair Centre in London suggested that it could be problems in Helen’s lifestyle that have affected the growth.

Gary Heron, Trichologist (Head of Practice) and Senior Associate of the Royal Society of Medicine, examined the pictures and gave his analysis.

He told OK! Online: “There are two reasons her hair may look like this. The first is a stress orientated hairline where the growth cycle is interrupted, or she could have hormone related hair loss”.

“She will need to look at her diet and lifestyle which could be a big factor. She’ll need to look at her main food groups and her dietary lifestyle problems”.

The actress has been warned over her lifestyle [Eamonn & James Clarke]

“Stress, a poor diet, poor health, or a hormone imbalance can all affect your hair”.

Gary added what Helen could do to bring back her thick hair.

“Helen should maybe get checked for problems such as polycystic ovaries or she could be suffering from anaemia. A simple blood test would be able to confirm this”.

“Her parting lines look pretty level and even which suggest the loss isn’t caused by extensions or hair colouring the way clumpy patches would”.

“With considerable treatment over the next 12 to 18 months, I think the majority would grow back,” he finished.

Hair loss reversed in alopecia areata sufferers

Posted by Gary Heron, on August 18th, 2014, under ALOPECIA AREATA

People saw their hair fully restored after just five months of treatment (right)|

Scientists have completely reversed hair loss in three people by giving them a drug normally used to treat bone marrow disorders.

The patients had alopecia areata – a condition that can cause severe, patchy baldness that is difficult to treat.

But after five months of taking the medication ruxolitinib, all three saw total hair re-growth.

The findings from Columbia University Medical Center are published in the journal Nature Medicine.

‘Devastating disease’

Alopecia areata affects around two in every 1,000 people in the UK and is thought to be caused by the immune system attacking hair follicles.

The US scientists had previously identified a set of immune cells involved in the destruction of hair and conducted a number of successful trials in mice.

They then gave three patients with moderate to severe alopecia areata a twice daily dose of ruxolitinib.

This medication is already approved for use in bone marrow conditions in the United States and European Union.

All three patients had lost at least a third of their hair but saw dramatic hair growth within five months of therapy.

Lead researcher Dr Raphael Clynes said: “We’ve only begun testing the drug in patients, but if the drug continues to be successful and safe, it will have a dramatic positive impact on the lives of people with the disease.”

Prof David Bickers, a dermatologist at Columbia University who has treated many patients with the disease, said: “There are few tools in the arsenal for the treatment of alopecia areata that have any demonstrated efficacy.

“This is a major step forward in improving the standard of care for patients suffering from this devastating disease.”

Researchers say more work is now needed to see if the drug can be offered more widely.

Alopecia areata can occur at any age but is most often seen in teenagers and young adults.

It is not related to the more common male-pattern hair loss that is thought to be driven by hormones.

Scientists say as the mechanisms behind this condition are different, the therapy is less likely to prove effective for this more common problem.
