Why a hair loss consultation is invaluable

When it comes to understanding hair loss, it’s really important to speak to someone who understands the science behind the issue, so they can help to address your unique set of circumstances. After all, each person’s symptoms may differ from one person to the next. 

If you’re wondering – do you need a consultation for a hair transplant? The answer is yes, and they are equally as important for other hair loss treatments, too. Here at Crown Clinic, we believe it’s important to speak to you first so we can get an understanding of your symptoms and hair loss in order to address them in the best possible way and to provide the correct treatment. 

How long does a hair transplant consultation take?

A consultation is a key part of the process when it comes to a hair transplant or other treatment. Usually, after you have filled in an initial form to begin the process, you will be booked in for a consultation, which will last upwards of thirty minutes. At Crown Clinic, we will offer a one to one with Dr. Shahmalak, either virtually or in person. 

Remember, it’s important to be aware of clinics that don’t offer the chance to meet your doctor directly, as that calls into question the value of that consultation. Often, a sales representative won’t know how to offer you a tailored treatment that will meet your needs. A face to face consultation is invaluable when addressing these needs. 

What will be involved as part of the consultation?

A valuable part of the hair loss treatment and transplant process is what happens during your consultation. Your hair expert will be able to figure out the treatment that will offer you the best outcome based on your needs. To understand this, it’s important to understand the type of hair loss you are experiencing. As part of the consultation, your hair loss expert should look at your medical history to understand the bigger picture of why you may be experiencing hair loss. 

At Crown Clinic, Dr. Shahmalak will gain insights into your medical history and take a look at your hair loss to figure out a treatment plan that suits your needs, which is why a consultation is invaluable.

Should I consult a doctor for hair loss first?

It’s really important to speak to a qualified professional who understands hair loss and we would not recommend speaking to salesmen. In terms of which doctor you choose, the choice is yours. You are more than welcome to speak to your GP about your hair loss. In fact, they may even be able to help you understand the underlying cause of your hair loss. However, when it comes to a treatment plan to help you with hair loss, meeting with a specialist such as Dr. Shahmalak is invaluable because they can help you develop a tailored treatment plan.

Remember, it’s important for patients to be assessed and examined by a medically qualified expert in the field as opposed to a salesman. An expert can discuss the pros and cons of surgery and determine if medical therapy is needed. They can also prescribe oral medication.
