Alopecia is also known as general hair loss. There are many different forms of alopecia, each of which requires different treatment and often emotional support. For example, alopecia areata (patches) often self-corrects, while other cases of alopecia are permanent. Frontal fibrosing alopecia (a scarring hair loss) can either take a stable or ‘burnt-out’ form, or an aggressive, active form where the hair is being shed permanently.

As we are all so different medically and psychologically, each patient Shuna Hammocks consults is treated individually. There is never a “one size fits all” approach. Due to the emotional distress, that hair loss can cause, time is taken to gently question each patient to fully understand their concerns and worries.

Most conditions that present in consultation see a degree of improvement or stability within the first three months. Thorough instructions, videos (where appropriate) and phone or email support help each patient to come to terms with any permanent changes and what might happen in the future.
