Scarring alopecia often presents itself as an irregular area of shiny bald skin, which can be a darker or lighter colour than that surrounding it. No hair follicles are present and the skin can be atrophied, or even raised and thickened (Keloid). A scar is formed when a wound heals itself after deep tissue damage. The structure of scar tissue differs from normal skin and does not support normal hair growth. There are three main causes of scarring: chemical, infection and autoimmune disease.
Deborah has been my personal Trichologist and Hairdresser since February 2014. She is a highly professional, proficient and personable expert. I would highly recommend her.
After continuing to loose my hair every few months, I went to see Deborah. She was very caring and understanding , Deborah explained the reasons why and diagnosed a diffuse loss. I was given supplements which has helped enormously.
If you need a trichologist for any scalp or hair problems this lady is the one to see. I had hair loss problems which were worrying the life out of me and on my visit to Deborah she is not only a lovely but knew straight away how to help me and she did.The first thing she did was listen and take a full case history. She then examined my hair thoroughly including magnification. I was then sent off for unusual blood tests. Once, a thorough investigation had been made and she had received the blood results she then made a diagnosis and put me on an appropriate course of tablets & treatment that has been scientifically proven to be successful. Having been a client of Deborah since 2014 it is with great assurance that I can say she is easily one of the most knowledgable, helpful and careful trichologists in her field. In all, I am very impressed by the whole service. I would fully recommend anyone suffering hair loss of any type to make an appointment. The only thing you have to lose by not doing so… is more hair!
