Hair Loss

Hair loss is incredibly distressing for men but for women it can be totally devastating. Classic male pattern baldness occurs in around 16% of men from 18 to 40 years and over 50% of men over 40 years. It is also a surprisingly common condition in women affecting up to 40% of women over 40 years.

Contrary to popular belief hair loss can be treated effectively. Hair loss is caused by a variety of factors the most common being hormonal changes, stress, auto immune disease, other systemic diseases and medication.  Medication options include finasteride, regaine , hormone tablets and specialist shampoos.

Dr Charlson also offers PRP, platelet rich plasma injections at his clinic near Hull, 40 minutes from Leeds. This treatment is harvested from your own platelets which contain growth hormones which have been proven to reduce hair loss and improve hair thickness for over 12 months.

Dr Charlson will take a careful medical history, examine your scalp and recommended blood tests, (which although normal can actually still be the cause of the problem) and recommended medication where appropriate.

In certain cases in women just taking simple medication can improve the problem, don’t suffer in silence come and talk to Paul Charlson.
