Hair Loss Treatment at Glasgow Medical Rooms
Hair Loss Treatment, Glasgow
Male hair loss and hair thinning are the most common type of hair loss, caused primarily by increased sensitivity to male sex hormones in part of the scalp. Almost all hair loss in men results from male-pattern baldness – a genetic trait that comes from your parents. Whilst it is often a hereditary condition, there are hair loss treatments in Glasgow available which can help you regain the hair and prevent further loss at earlier stages. We appreciate the detrimental affect that this can have on self-esteem. At Glasgow Medical Rooms our hair loss treatments include a private full consultation, whereby medical treatment may be recommended as appropriate.
The two main types of hair loss treatment in Glasgow that are available include:
- Minoxidil lotion – commonly known as regain, and is applied twice daily to the scalp. It encourages blood flow to the hair follicles and increases follicular size, helping to prevent further hair loss and initiate hair growth. Beneﬁts vary from person to person, and effects tend to wear off as soon as treatment is stopped.
- Finasteride – also known as Propecia, this treatment is taken orally to block the hormones which affect hair follicles. Propecia tends to show positive effects for around 80% of patients over 3 to 6 months.
PRICE: £120 for 30-minute consultation + provision of prescription (not the drug)
“I have had persistent neck and shoulder discomfort for some time. Regular visits to my local GP did not help. I was recommended to see Dr Sheila O’Neil who gave me a check-up and recommended that I see her physiotherapist colleague, Vicky Graham. I have had three sessions of physiotherapy and have regained full mobility in my neck and shoulders and feel a great deal better. I am very grateful to Dr Sheila and expect, with my husband, to sign up with her as regular patients.”Mrs Johnston
I would like to thank Dr O’Neill very much for her time today: I get the impression that she is a very caring professional, knowledgeable and reassuring, and that she makes explaining conditions crystal clear, which is exactly what is needed for an anxious patient like myself. The staff that I met were all extremely welcoming, well-groomed and helpful too. Add to this the very relaxing and beautifully scented ambience and it was really a truly positive and pleasant visit. Thank you.Linnea Blair
We took our 2 year old son in to see Dr O’Neill for a meningitis B vaccination recently. Due to shortages of the vaccine, we had been on a waiting list with a well-known high street pharmacist for months without knowing when they would get stock in. We came across Glasgow Medical Rooms who had the vaccination and we managed to get our son booked in the next day. The clinic was very smart and easy to access in the city centre too. Dr O’Neill was great at dealing with our toddler. It was a relief to get the jabs sorted so quickly and would highly recommend the service to others.”Mrs Crawford
“Dr. Sheila O’Neill and her team quite literally saved my life. I cannot recommend them highly enough. Diagnosis of a serious condition that had been misdiagnosed by three hospitals took less than 2 weeks, including an MRI. Setting aside the professionalism, they are also just extremely nice people. Imagine a GP that truly cares and will be calling the patient after hours to see how they are getting on – that is what I got from Dr. Sheila O’Neill. There are no superlatives that adequately describe the service. Great. Fantastic. Superb.”GMK Group
I am Business Professional with a very busy international travel schedule. On a monthly basis I can typically travel from North / Central / South America to Asia and various locations throughout Europe. I found it very difficult to locate a medical facility that understood my situation. After much research I found the perfect place at Glasgow Medical RoomsBrian Running
Dr. Shelia was outstanding in understanding my situation. Outwith her medical expertise, she clearly understood the challenges I faced with my demanding travel schedule and the need to have a medical facility that was flexible to my needs.
In addition, the entire team that works at Glasgow Medical Rooms are sincere, kind, professional and their communication is second to none.
A special mention to the Practice Manager, Donna McMillan who leads by example, resulting what appears to be a flawless Practice.
