This week we embark on what we hope will be a short term lockdown period, but we wanted to reassure our clients that the Hair Loss Clinic @ Christos will remain open as we have Essential Service status.
Hair loss doesn’t stop because a pandemic has hit! In fact, we have seen a growing number of clients turn to us as they are experiencing hair loss as a result of long term Covid.
We understand that when you are suffering from hair loss, regardless of the underlying condition, it can be very distressing, even more so during this period of isolation.
As you are aware, we were granted essential service status to help support our cancer, alopecia and medically induced hair loss clients (including Telogen Effluvium) throughout any period of enforced salon closures. This means that we will still be able to offer a number of services in the clinic environment.
To further support the work we offer in clinic, and to protect those of you that are shielding or would feel more comfortable not coming into the clinic, we will be running our virtual clinics with the same clinical team on hand to support your patients.
Fiona Susannah (NHS) Urgent care Prescribing Nurse Practitioner.
Charlotte Lucas Consultant Pharmacist and Medical Nutritionist (NHS)
Dr Mike Ryan Trichologist
Headed up by Tina Hair Loss Expert/Clinician Director.
Naturally, we have updated our service and procedures to ensure that we are adhering to all social distancing guidelines without compromising the service we can offer.
During your consultation we will go through:
· Treatment Programmes
· What may happen to your hair & scalp.
· How you are feeling and how you would like to look!
· Advice and support on hair and scalp care at home
· Advice and support on nutrition to help boost your immunity
Observing full social distancing protocols and wearing PPE we then arrange to drop off headwear, wigs, eyebrow palettes and shampoo, for you to try in the comfort of your own home!
We can stay outside your property and offer guidance on trying on using phone or Face Time or simply through a closed window. We can order in a collection of wigs, headwear and any other items for you to consider on a 2nd virtual visit.
Once you are happy with the wig we will then cut & style it to make is bespoke to you and provide further support on how to manage their own hair and scalp.
We are still working with all our referral partners and can still process and support the NHS referral prescription if you come to us through NHS referral. Clients referred by Genesis Cancer Care we can provide you with invoices for you to submit to your insurance company. For the children, teenagers and young people referred by The Little Princess Trust, we will continue to work with you in the same way.
So many clients have contacted us to say how much they value this service, particularly during the isolation period so it was especially important for us to ensure we could continue this.
To arrange your consultation please get in touch using the contact details below. If it goes through to voicemail it is likely that we are helping other clients so please do leave a voicemail or drop us an email and we will get back to you.
