In this episode of HealthCert's GP Insights podcast, we talk about hair loss with Dr Helena Rosengren, an experienced Skin Cancer and Cosmetic Medicine Physician based in Townsville.

In the podcast, Dr Rosengren explores the sorts of hair loss and hair thinning concerns she sees in her primary care practice and explains who these conditions typically affect. She discusses the different types of hair loss and their causes, which of course affect the clinician's approach to management.

Dr Rosengren talks about the primary care treatments she uses in her own clinic for hair loss and how they work (including supplements, topical creams, Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy, and more), plus which patients are the best candidates for these treatments and which patients aren't typically suitable.

The podcast looks into hair loss treatments a GP can realistically expect to incorporate into their primary care practice and what sort of training and equipment they would require in order to get started.

Dr Rosengren also gives practical advice on the risks and limitations involved with hair loss treatments and when to refer a patient onwards to an expert dermatologist.

Hear all this and much more in the full podcast above!
