Haywards Heath, West Sussex (PRWEB UK) 26 August 2013
Shuna Hammocks, founder of Sussex Trichology, has achieved great success in raising awareness of the taboo subject of hair loss in the two years since launching her own business. To keep up with the growing demand for hair loss information and treatment, Shuna has decided to expand Sussex Trichology's website ( http://www.sussextrichology.co.uk/ ).
The Sussex Trichology Clinic's new and improved website, now featuring a database of conditions ( http://www.sussextrichology.co.uk/kb/ ) and brand new videos ( http://www.sussextrichology.co.uk/category/st-tv/ ), focusses on helping the public decipher the difference between genuine and bogus trichologists.
Hair Loss in Women
Most women will experience a degree of hair loss at some point in their lives. An increasingly common complaint among these women is the feeling of despondency when sharing these concerns with their doctor.
Disappointingly, the medical profession often dismisses queries regarding hair loss as 'mere cosmetic issues' and 'not life threatening.' While Shuna agrees the latter may be the case, she also points out that, 'Will I lose all my hair?' is the second question most cancer patients ask their oncologist.
Hair loss in women should, at the very least, be considered 'life changing,' due to its psychological effect on individuals, and the extent to which it affects their quality of life. There are many video testimonials on the Sussex Trichology website, in which patients discuss their feelings candidly, expressing their relief at being one of Shuna's patients and describing how impressed they are with her work.
Different Hair Loss Treatments
One issue that interests Shuna is the amount of time and money people spend researching different hair loss treatments before booking an appointment at the Haywards Heath clinic. She notes that new patients often arrive with up to six different 'potions' and 'miracle cures,' which have either aggravated their condition (such as almond oil for psoriasis) or haven't helped at all (such as over-the-counter shampoo for dermatitis).
Shuna has fourteen years of experience in the field of trichology, and her previous work for the Royal Navy ensures she has the discipline and dedication to succeed in her work. Trichology is a family passion, which Shuna was inspired to pursue by her father, Glenn Lyons, who is a Fellow of the Institute of Trichologists.
The Sussex Trichology Clinic's Future
Shuna and The Sussex Trichology Clinic plan to continue raising awareness of trichology, which is the science of the structure, function and disease of human hair, and the importance of verifying a practitioner's qualifications. Shuna would like to see trichology become a household name that rolls off the tongue, so that more women feel able to step forward and seek the hair loss treatment they need.
