BAHRS Member, Dr Ingrid Wilson, provides a comprehensive guide of referral pathways for hair loss in this month's edition of Aesthetics 

 

 

 

Aesthetics  is a monthly publication for professionals providing aesthetic treatments. It is often the case that these aesthetic practitioners will come across patients seeking advice for their hair loss.

In her article, Dr Ingrid Wilson highlights how the diagnosis for hair loss is not always clear and referral should be considered if there is any doubt. She explores the different referral pathways available to professionals and the utility of the following specialisms: 

- General practitioners  

- Dermatologists 

- Trichologists

- Hair Restoration Surgeons 

Dr Wilson's article shines a light on the growing issue of mis-diagnosis and treatment of hair loss which in many cases is the aesthetic manifestation of an underlying medical condition.
