Do I Speak to my Doctor About A Hair Loss Treatment?

Name: Jack

Question: I am losing my hair and would like medical treatment before I invest in a hair transplant…Do I speak to my doctor ?

Answer: Belgravia do not require you to be referred via your GP, and as such seeing your doctor is not necessary. Our dermatologist Dr Elena Koleva is on hand for patients who wish to see her, though if yours is a simple case of male pattern hair loss this is not usually necessary. A free initial consultation with a hair loss specialist will asses the type and severity of your hair loss, and provide you with a diagnosis and a potential hair loss treatment plan based on clinically proven medications that include our unique high strength minoxidil. The treatment can help to strengthen the donor part of your scalp and stimulate regrowth as much as possible on the thinning area, as well as halting the rate of hair loss. This will help to minimise the number of follicles required for a hair transplant in the future.


Do you have a question that you would like our senior hair loss specialist Leonora Doclis to answer? You can submit it here via our HairLossANSWERS form and we’ll get back to you.
