- Blood clotting disorders
- Blood pressure

- Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)
- Parkinson’s disease

How is medical hair loss diagnosed?
If you begin to suffer from persistent hair loss, you should first see your doctor. They will carry out an examination and discuss any ongoing health conditions or medications that may be causing the problem. If they suspect a skin or autoimmune disease, a small section of skin may be taken for testing.
Treatment for medical hair loss
Usually the initial treatment for hair loss will be either over the counter or prescribed medications, depending on your doctor’s advice. Unfortunately, sometimes medications cannot stop hair loss, and this becomes permanent. This is likely to be very upsetting and affect your confidence.
Scalp Micropigmentation, or SMP, is a non-invasive treatment that disguises hair loss and can treat thinning hair, scars, baldness and alopecia on both men and women. In a similar procedure to tattooing, pigment is deposited into the epidermal layer of the scalp, creating the look of short lengths of hair which are matched identically to your own natural pigments. The result is seamless and maintenance free and will not affect any natural regrowth, should this happen.
